    This has me scratching my head. I don't mind giving up Greene but I would rather have kept Leone. Perhaps another move pending?

    Batted ball profile and hard contact strikes again.

    This front office has a type. Hopefully some high performance magic turns him into 2017 Smoak offensively.

    He reminds me of Colby Rasmus.

    With the price of relief arms on the market, I think we gave up far too much. Leone is coming off of a great season and Greene has the potential to be a dominant relief arm. Grichuk is barely a starting calibre outfielder, if at all, in my opinion.

    Buster Olney says: For now, it appears the Jays will go into spring training with this group of outfielders: Randal Grichuk, Kevin Pillar, Teoscar Hernandez, Ezequiel Carrera, Steve Pearce, Curtis Granderson.

    My guess is Shatkins sees something with his approach that can help him correct his K to BB rate. If he does he'll have a Smoak like improvement and we get a 3 WAR player. If he doesn't he's still a useful player with a close to league average bat and solid defense at all 3 OF positions.

    Connor Greene's numbers are so bad and while Leone had a good season my guess is he can't repeat it. I like this move.

    Its definitely more than I would have thought it would cost to get Randy. It does help that I have zero faith that Greene will turn into anything, even in the BP... but still seems expensive.

    I am excited about what our team can do with Grichuk tho. Hope for some magic!

    end of day, we need all these small solid additions to be buffered by a bigger acquisition. Even if that is a medium term addition like Cobb or Lynn.
    Gotta give ourselves a punchers chance of the playoffs while not overburdening ourselves

    22 homers last year, perhaps Shatkins thinks his power can help.
