The Toronto Blue Jays have a lot of work to do in order to replenish the Buffalo Bisons roster. When we exclude possible promotions from AA, the current roster sits at only four players: RHP Bobby Korecky, LHP Chad Girodo, 2B Jon Berti, and 3B Andy Burns.

Looking through the current 40-man roster of the Blue Jays, we can also expect the following to join them (at a minimum): RHP

Chad Jenkins


Pat Venditte


Ben Rowen

, C

A.J. Jimenez

, 3B

Matt Dominguez

, 1B

Matt Hague

, and LF

Ezequiel Carrera


The Jays also recently re-signed C Luis Hurtado who should head to Buffalo unless they start him lower and promote him later.

That’s a total of 12 players and 2 more likely to join them from the 40-man roster when the season begins. There’s a lot of room to be filled and quite a few candidates to pick from. Some promotions from AA will also round out a lot of the left over room.

There will still be room to add quite a few free agent players, so I’ll take a shot at identifying 10 players that I believe would fit in well as depth pieces for the Blue Jays in 2016.

The chosen 10 will be posted in pairs, beginning with 5 pitchers and followed by 5 position players.
