TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Blue Jays signed shortstop Alex Gonzalez to a one-year deal worth $2.75 million on Thursday, which includes a club option for 2011.

The move came a day after backup shortstop John McDonald agreed to a $3-million, two-year deal that effectively marked the end of free agent Marco Scutaro's time with the club.

The 32-year-old Gonzalez split last season between Cincinnati and Boston, batting .238 with eight home runs and 41 RBIs. The Venezuelan was an All-Star in 1999, and is a career .247 hitter with 114 home runs and 521 RBIs.

His club option would be worth $2.5 million if exercised.
