The Toronto Blue Jays today designated for assignment former Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia. "Salty", now 32 years old, was having a brutal year so far in 2017 (hitting .040). He probably has an outside chance of getting a minor-league deal with somebody—but this could be the end of the road. During his four years in Carmine Hose, Salty hit .243 with 55 HRs and 181 RBIs.
