Blue Jays Interested in Munenori Kawasaki

As reported by Bob Elliot of the Toronto Sun, the Blue Jays have an interest in adding infielder Munenori Kawasaki to its organization.

Kawasaki, 31, spent last season with the Mariners – his first year in the major leagues after having several star years in Japan.  He hit .192 in 104 at-bats last season while providing depth at shortstop and 2B.

If the Jays do indeed go after Kawasaki, look for him to be signed to a minor league deal and start the year in triple-A while providing infield depth.  It seems the Jays 25-man roster is pretty much set, so Kawasaki would be a depth move.
