Well, that didn't take long.
The Blue Jays signed the veteran backstop to a minor-league contract Tuesday, according to an announcement from their Triple-A affiliate, the Buffalo Bisons. Saltalamacchia will report to the Bisons, according to the release.
The 32-year-old won the backup catching job for the Blue Jays out of spring training, but hit just .040/.077/.040 in 10 games before his release.
Over the course of his 11-year career, Saltalamacchia owns a .233/.307/.409 slash line with 110 home runs and 381 RBIs, while playing for seven different organizations.
