Blue Jays on verge of re-signing catcher Zaun
The Blue Jays reached an agreement in principle with catcher Rod Barajas, but it was not immediately clear if the Barajas deal fell apart.
Zaun had also drawn some interest from the Red Sox and Yankees, but in remaining with the Blue Jays, he will probably get most of the team's playing time. If he had gone to Boston or to New York, he would have been a backup catcher.
