Confirmed Merryweather is the PTBNL from the Donaldson trade.

The Indians announced the completion of the August 31st Josh Donaldson trade today, sending right-hander Julian Merryweather to Toronto as expected.

To make room for Merryweather on the 40-man roster, Jon Berti was designated for assignment, per Sportsnet.ca’s Shi Davidi. The 28-year-old Berti got his first taste of the big leagues this season, starting four games at second base for the Blue Jays in September.
If he comes back from his injury and turns into a top half of the rotation starter, then the Jays will have at least salvaged something valuable from Donaldson.

Ugh. I feel nothing positive about Julian Merryweather.

The Toronto Blue Jays are believed to be down to five candidates in their search for a new manager and have begun in-person interviews to decide on a replacement for John Gibbons.

The identity of the finalists couldnít be confirmed, although according to multiple industry sources, Joe Espada (the Houston Astros bench coach), David Bell (the San Francisco Giantsí farm director), Rocco Baldelli (the Tampa Bay Raysí major-league field co-ordinator), and Brandon Hyde (the Chicago Cubsí bench coach), are believed to be among them.

@Ken_Rosenthal
Sam Fuld and Rocco Baldelli have made strong impressions on the #BlueJays in their managerial search, sources tell The Athletic. No apparent front-runner; other, unidentified candidates are believed to be just as strongly in the mix.
Sam Fuld might be the other name.

They should keep Gibby around just to do the press interviews. Let the new manager not have to deal with it.
