Left-hander Jaime Garcia and the Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to a $10-million, one-year contract that includes a 2019 team option.

Garcia gets $8-million this year as part of the deal announced Thursday and Toronto has a $10-million option with a $2 million buyout. He can earn an additional $2-million annually in performance bonuses based on innings and would get the full amount at 180.

The 31-year-old had a $12-million salary last season, when he went 5-10 with a 4.41 ERA in 27 starts for Atlanta, Minnesota and the New York Yankees.
