The TORONTO BLUE JAYS have signed RHP RICK VANDENHURK to a non-guaranteed split major league contract.

The Eindhoven, Netherlands native spent the majority of 2011 with the Orioles AAA club in Norfolk, where he went 9-13 with a 4.43 ERA in 26 starts, while limiting International League hitters to a .239 average. The 6-5, 215 pound right-hander has appeared in 46 Major League games, including 35 starts over five seasons with Florida and Baltimore, posting an 8-10 record with a 5.97 ERA.
