Blue Jays Exercise Jason Grilli’s Option for the 2017 Season
The Blue Jays have officially exercised Jason Grilli’s $3 Million club option for the 2017 season.
When Grilli was traded to the Blue Jays during the trade deadline in 2016, the Blue Jays knew that if he pitched well and made a difference, they would extend his option for one more year. And that is exactly what they did!
Grilli was a key player for the Blue Jays during there post season push in 2016, and he hopefully will be another key in the post season push for 2017.
Jason Grilli will turn 40 this November, and the Blue Jays are the 9th team he has been a part of during his 14 career MLB years.
