The Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to terms with veteran first baseman Dan Johnson on a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training.

Johnson, 34, appeared in three games for the Baltimore Orioles last season after being acquired from the New York Yankees organization on Aug. 30.

The six-foot-two, 210-pound native of Coon Rapids, Minn., spent most of last season at Scranton Wilkes-Barre. He had a .253 average with the triple-A team and hit 21 homers and drove in 69 runs.

The eight-year major-league veteran has a career .236 average with 56 home runs and 194 RBIs with Oakland, Tampa Bay, Chicago White Sox and Baltimore.
