Jon Heyman has the official word on the coming-to-fruition of what Ken Rosenthal was sniffing around last night…
Maicer gets $10M for 3 yrs plus club option. #jays

However, there’s a slight hiccup: Shi Davidi says Heyman doesn’t quite have the accounting right:
Three sources indicate #Jays will sign Maicer Izturis for numbers similar but not exactly the $10m over 3 yrs + club option being reported
— Shi Davidi (@ShiDavidi) November 8, 2012
That could possibly change things, but the fact that Davidi is telling us it’s “similar” probably means we don’t have to change much of how we think of this… which is rather positive, frankly.
(UPDATE: A team release announces that the deal is for three years at $3-million per, with a $3-million option for a fourth.)
