Jakubauskas is a right-handed swingman who has played parts of three seasons in the majors for the Seattle Mariners, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Baltimore Orioles. He has compiled a career 5.58 ERA over 166 innings with 5.4 K/9 and 3 BB/9 (15 starts). Jakubauskas's fastball averages about 90 mph, and he mixes in a curveball and occasional change.
Jakubauskas did not pitch in the majors in 2012, instead splitting time between Arizona's and Toronto's farm systems. Between AA and AAA ball, he compiled a 4.29 ERA over 65 innings. Jakubauskas's 2012 strikeout and walk rates remained consistent with his major league rates.
The terms of the signing have not yet been announced.
According to Adam McCalvy on Twitter, Jakubauskas's is a minor league deal without an invite to the major league camp. Still, he may see action in spring with others at the World Baseball Classic.
