Ryan Tepera cleared release waivers and is a free agent. I’d be happy if the Jays re-signed him. If not, I hope he finds a job somewhere.
And there was this:
Here’s an interesting one: Heard from multiple people lately #BlueJays could be open to moving Lourdes Gurriel Jr. this winter, especially if it brings the right rotation arm back.— Scott Mitchell (@ScottyMitchTSN) November 11, 2019
Signed through 2023 and heading into his age-26 season, the contract is nice and so is the bat.
I don’t think any player should be untouchable, but I’d need a pretty amazing return for a guy who has four very affordable years left on his contract.
He would have a lot of trade value.
I see lot of people on Twitter saying they would rather we trade one the lesser players on the team, not understanding that if you want a good return you have to offer something good in return.
