Video: Jon Rauch Ejection

The best first and probably least significant move of the night was the signing of former Toronto Blue Jay, Jon Rauch.  Listed at 6'10", Rauch is an imposing figure who has pitched to a 3.82 ERA over nine seasons in the big leagues.

Known as much for his tattoos as his pitching prowless, Rauch had a down year in 2011 after being fairly consistent over a previous period of several years.  Signed to a one year, $3.5 million dollar contract, he will likely serve as the teams 8th inning man this upcoming season.

Below you'll find a grainy video of Rauch being ejected in a July 2nd game against the Phillies following a close call at the plate.  The video should serve as an illustration of just how fiery Rauch can be while undoubtedly showing just how big he really is.
