Bautista says he took less money but is happy in Toronto

TORONTO (AP) Jose Bautista said Saturday he took less money to re-sign with the Toronto Blue Jays but is happy even though he didn't get a long-term contract.

The free agent slugger agreed to an $18.5 million, one-year contract Tuesday that includes mutual options for more years.

The 36-year-old Bautista said he wanted to stay because he's been in Toronto a long time and enjoyed so much success. He said he didn't know if it was possible that he could return but felt there was mutual interest all along.
