The Blue Jays also signed St. Francis graduate Jim Negrych who made the Triple A All Star team while with Syracuse last season. Negrych signed his contract at Tuesday's press conference at Pettibone's grill at Coca Cola Field.
The Bisons also unveiled their new look for the 2013 season.
Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos was on hand for the announcements. Anthopolos drove down from Toronto after hosting a news conference to introduce John Gibbons as the Blue Jays new manager..
