Top Blue Jays News

  • Blue Jays' Wynton Bernard: Signs deal with Blue Jays

    Bernard agreed Tuesday to a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays that includes an invitation to spring training, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Bernard spent 10 seasons in the minors before finally getting a chance to make his MLB debut with the Rockies in 2022. The 32-year-old will likely serve as organizational depth for the Blue Jays, though he could make the Opening Day roster as a reserve outfielder with a strong showing in the Grapefruit League.

  • Blue Jays' Junior Fernandez: Clears waivers and outrighted

    Fernandez cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Buffalo by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Fernandez was designated for assignment for the fourth time this winter, and this time went unclaimed by another organization. He'll be organizational depth for the Blue Jays in 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Inks deal

    Guerrero signed a one-year, $14.5 million contract with the Blue Jays on Friday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    The deal means Guerrero and the Blue Jays will avoid arbitration. He finished the 2022 season with 32 home runs, 97 RBI, and a career-high eight stolen bases across 160 games. The 23-year-old also hit .274 from the plate. He again proved durable, as he has missed just three games over the previous two seasons.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Settles with Toronto

    Cimber signed a one-year, $3.15 million contract with Toronto on Friday to avoid arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    In his first full season with the Blue Jays, Cimber put up a 2.80 ERA and 1.12 WHIP through 70.2 innings out of the bullpen, earning 20 holds and four saves in the process. His impressive stats were more than enough to warrant a healthy raise for the 32-year-old righty, who will most likely serve as a setup man in 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Inks deal for 2023

    Varsho agreed to a one-year, $3.05 million contract with the Blue Jays on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Recently acquired by the Blue Jays from the Diamondbacks, Varsho was able to come to terms with his new team in his first year of arbitration eligibility. The 26-year-old had a .235/.302/.443 slash line with 27 home runs and 16 stolen bases in 151 games last season, and he's expected to open 2023 as Toronto's primary left fielder.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Reaches deal with Toronto

    Romano agreed to a one-yar, $4.538 million contract with the Blue Jays on Friday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    It's the first year of arbitration eligibility for Romano, and he'll receive a significant raise after he recorded 36 saves with a 2.11 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 73:21 K:BB across 64 innings last year. The 29-year-old has been dominant over the past couple seasons and will open 2023 as Toronto's clear-cut closer.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Avoids arbitration with Toronto

    Biggio signed a one-year, $2.8 million contract with the Blue Jays on Friday to avoid arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Biggio has been a disappointment at the plate two years running with back-to-back sub-.700 OPS seasons. His versatility is appealing, though, and he looks to be in line for a super-utility role again in 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Santiago Espinal: Avoids arbitration with Toronto

    Espinal and the Blue Jays agreed on a one-year, $2.1 million contract Friday to avoid arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The 28-year-old infielder busted onto the scene in 2022, batting .267 with seven homers, 51 RBI, 51 runs and six stolen bases over 135 games in a season during which he made his first All Star team. Espinal will likely operate as a utility option in 2023 with Whit Merrifield expected to be the Jays' primary second baseman, and he could start at multiple spots across the infield.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Reaches deal with Toronto

    Thornton and the Blue Jays agreed on a one-year, $1 million contract Friday to avoid arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The right-hander compiled a 4.11 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with 37 strikeouts and three holds over 46 innings in 32 appearances with Toronto in 2022. Thornton will provide bullpen depth for the Jays again in 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Reaches terms with Toronto

    Mayza agreed to a one-year, $2.1 million contract with the Blue Jays on Friday to avoid arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Mayza was once again a solid bullpen piece for Toronto in 2022 and recorded two saves and 16 holds with a 3.14 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 44:12 K:BB across 48.2 innings. The veteran lefty should fill a similar role out of the bullpen in 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Trevor Richards: Avoids arbitration with Toronto

    Richards signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Blue Jays on Friday to avoid arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The 29-year-old held a 5.34 ERA but also struck out 82 over 64 innings for the Blue Jays last season. Richards has plenty of past starting experience but appears pegged for a full-time relief gig again in 2023. He did serve as an opener for the Jays a few times in 2022 and might be used some in that role again for the upcoming season.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Avoids arbitration with Toronto

    Jansen signed a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Blue Jays on Friday to avoid arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Jansen was superb at the dish when healthy in 2022, producing an .855 OPS with 15 home runs over 72 games. His playing time in 2023 could be affected by the Brandon Belt signing if it means more catching for Alejandro Kirk, but the reality is Jansen hasn't reached 250 plate appearances either of the last two seasons, anyway. He's still capable of being a viable second fantasy catcher even with a truncated workload.

  • Blue Jays' Jay Jackson: Inks MiLB deal with Toronto

    Jackson agreed to a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Wednesday, which includes an invite to major-league spring training, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Jackson spent the 2022 campaign with Atlanta but appeared in just two big-league contests. He pitched well at the Triple-A level with a 2.29 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 25:4 K:BB across 19.2 innings after he sat out first couple months of the season with a lat strain.

  • Blue Jays' Brandon Belt: Deems self healthy, expects to DH

    Belt noted Wednesday that he feels back to full health after undergoing surgery in September on his right knee, and he anticipates seeing most of his starts with the Blue Jays as a designated hitter during the upcoming season, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

    Belt, who signed a one-year, $9.3 million deal with Toronto earlier this week, admitted that his exact role isn't solidified just yet, but he suggested that he expects to play DH in most games while occasionally spelling Vladimir Guerrero at first base. The arrangement should help Belt from a durability standpoint, given that chronic knee issues along with an assortment of other injuries have cost him extensive time throughout his career. When he was available for the Giants last season, Belt posted a career-worst 96 wRC+ in 298 plate appearances, but the Blue Jays are hoping that improved health coming off surgery along with a superior collection of bats around him can help the 34-year-old bounce back.

  • Blue Jays' Julian Merryweather: Gets DFA'd by Blue Jays

    Merryweather was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Merryweather has flashed plenty of upside at times out of the Blue Jays' bullpen, but he's ultimately had trouble with health and consistency with a career 5.64 ERA over parts of three seasons. The 31-year-old doesn't have any options left, which could affect his appeal on waivers.

  • Blue Jays' Junior Fernandez: Designated for assignment

    Fernandez was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Fernandez was just claimed by the Jays last week and will now go through the waiver process again. If he does join another new team, it would be his fifth since September.

  • Blue Jays' Zach Thompson: Acquired by Toronto

    Thompson was acquired by the Blue Jays from the Pirates on Tuesday in exchange for Chavez Young.

    Thompson had been designated for assignment last week and he now has a new home. The right-hander put up a 5.18 ERA for the Pirates in 2022 while splitting time between the rotation and bullpen. He should have a chance to compete for a rotation spot in Toronto but could wind up in a swingman role again.
