The Toronto Blue Jays filled out their rotation on Thursday.

The team announced Thursday that they have signed left-handed starter Jaime Garcia to a one-year, $8 million contract. The deal includes a $10 million team option or $2 million buyout for 2019.

The 31-year old has posted a combined 67-55 record and 3.69 ERA over nine seasons in the MLB. He split time between the Atlanta Braves, Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees in 2017, registering a 5-10 record, 4.41 ERA, and 1.40 WHIP in 157.0 innings pitched during that span.
