Glad Tepera is gone, was never really a fan.

Too bad about Travis, feel like he could have maybe turned into an outfielder with a decent bat, but poor guy couldn't stay healthy.

IIRC that's it for the 2015/16 team now too. All gonzo

As for the trade, the Jays seem to be building up decent starting pitching depth, but still need some high quality top of the rotation arms. I'm hoping they sign/trade for two this off season. Something like Wheeler as a FA and Kluber via trade for example.

Fill out the rest with Thornton, Waguespack, Shoemaker, Anderson, Borucki, Kay, Zeuch, Merryweather and Pearson.

I'm somewhat surprised they moved on from Travis. They have to have inside injury reports to have made that decision, because his upside when he's not injured is pretty good. I guess they think whatever he has is chronic. That's too bad, but a team that's rebuilding would normally take a chance at that unless something is really wrong.

Smoak, if he comes back. But yeah, right now that's it. That escalated quickly.

Hopefully Drury is gone before the season starts. We don't need to see him play any more games to find out that he is what he is now, and that's a really, really bad baseball player.

Score alert saying Gurriel could be moved for rotation help. I don't mind moving him if needed, but his contract is amazing and maybe an extra year of producing at the same clip would yield a higher return this time next year. That's my view on it - and it better be for a 1-3 type guy. Getting a 4-5 starter for a high potential middle infielder would be selling cheap.

It'd sure be nice if the Jays landed Tsutsugo and/or Akiyama. Probably not elite MLBers but could be very nice complimentary pieces to the young core the Jays have. Especially if Akiyama could perform in CF.

Its also being reported that the Jays are listening to offers on their young catchers. I doubt they're shopping them but merely listening when other teams inquire, which is obviously the right thing to do. Especially with Kirk and Moreno looming on the horizon.
