TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays signed veteran infielder Mark DeRosa to a US$750,000, one-year contract Tuesday and designated right-hander Sam Dyson for assignment.

DeRosa's contract includes a $750,000 club option for the 2014 season.

The 37-year-old native of Passaic, N.J., batted .188 with five doubles and six RBIs in 48 games for the Washington Nationals last season.

In 1,153 career games over 15 big-league seasons, DeRosa has posted a .270 average with 93 home runs and 458 RBIs. He has also played for the Atlanta Braves, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants.

Also Tuesday, the Blue Jays made two changes to their 2013 home schedule.

The game originally set for Aug. 29 versus the New York Yankees is now scheduled to be played Aug. 26 at 7:07 p.m. ET. In addition, Toronto's game against Tampa Bay on May 22 has been changed from a 7:07 p.m. start to a 4:37 p.m. start.
