Notes: Melky Cabrera will join Blue Jays

All-Star Game MVP Melky Cabrera reached an agreement with the Blue Jays on a two-year contract worth $16 million Friday, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

The 28-year-old Cabrera was leading the National League in hitting at .346 for the Giants when he drew a 50-game suspension Aug. 15 for a positive testosterone test. Cabrera asked to be removed from consideration for the NL batting title, feeling it would be a tainted crown.
