    Hopefully this trade means they are spending money on a starter pushing Biagini into the pen where we can easily adsorb the loss of Leone. I really would have liked to see what Greene could have done in a reliever role. He looks like Sanchez 2.0

    I don't mind losing Greene at all. Another solid move and this teams' depth is becoming quite strong.

    Grichuk had a 94 wRC+ in 2017 and 103 wRC+ in 2016. He was worth 1.4 WAR in 2017 and 2.2 WAR in 2016.
    Looking forward to Tuesday March 1st, 2018 > Blue Jays @ Phillies 1:05pm, Clearwater FLA >>Grapefruit League begins.

    I don't think this means Carrera is gone.

    1B - Smoak
    DH - Morales
    OF - Pillar/Pearce/Granderson/Grichuk/Carrera

    With a healthy lineup, we probably just see Diaz and Hernandez start in AAA. But probably Travis and/or Tulowitzki will break a femur in ST, and there's no glut at all.

    That's my take too. Carrera sticks as the LH OF option. Teoscar starts in AAA. Take the remaining money and sign Lynn + a bullpen flyer.

    If that's the case then Buffalo is going to have one hell of an OF. Alford, Pompey and Hernandez.

    If Grichuk doesn't improve the Jays outfield still looks pretty gross. If he can produce 2.5-3 WAR and the Pearce/Granderson combo can do the same, it will be a passable OF, with Teoscar available for depth (or replacing Pearce as a platoon with Grandy?). Still, they Jays don't have any really great offensive players anymore, other than Donaldson. Smoak could be a difference maker, but I'm not sold on last season yet. I really think Cain would have been a good addition to the team, but that's clearly not happening now.

    I'm surprised we couldn't get more for Leone considering he was worth 1.5 WAR last year, and reliever value is through the roof.

    Not impressive per say, but a decent OF option with power.

    I am excited about what our team can do with Grichuk tho. Hope for some magic!
    Iím a bit surprised anyone thinks this is an overpayment.

    Greene profiles as a reliever and Leone is a non elite reliever who has as many negative WAR seasons as positive ones.

    Grichuk isnít exactly an exciting acquisition but it hasnít harmed the mid to long term team at all.

    This also means that if one of Hernandez or Alford establish themselves this season, then Carrera is likely gone.

    I doubt even Leone's mom believes he'll repeat the success he had last year...
