The Toronto Blue Jays have signed Canadian outfielder Adam Loewen to a minor league contract with an invitation to major league spring training.

The native of Surrey, B.C., spent most of last season with the New York Mets organization, posting a .227 average with eight home runs and 26 RBIs with triple-A Buffalo.

Loewen spent the 2009-11 seasons in the Blue Jays organization after converting to a position player from a pitcher. In 2011 with triple-A Las Vegas, the left-handed hitter batted .306 with 67 extra base hits.
