Steven Moya- Detroit Tigers

Steven Moya was once thought to be a promising outfielder for the Tigers, however, the 26-year old never lived up to the lofty expectations placed upon the young slugger. In 51 major league games, Moya is hitting .250/.293/.452 with 5 home runs and 50 strikeouts in 133 career plate appearances.

Moya is a career .249 hitter with 138 home runs in 808 career minor league games, he has seasons with 35, 23 and 20 round trippers while playing on the farm for the Tigers. The right-fielder would be a serviceable organizational depth piece in the event the Blue Jays outfielder fall victim to the injury bug in 2018.

Mason Williams- New York Yankees

Mason Williams was drafted in the 4th round of the 2010 amateur draft and has somewhat fallen victim to a numbers game preventing the speedster from asserting himself at the major league level.

Williams has cups of coffee in the majors over the last three season and actually fits the Blue Jays mold they are trying to craft their roster around in 2018. Williams is very athletic with great speed and has spent the majority of his career patrolling centerfield.

In 25 games with the Yankees, Williams is batting .281 with a homer and 2 stolen bases in limited action. Over his minor league career, Williams is batting .273/.327/.369 with 118 stolen bases over his 8-year career. In 2017, Williams swiped 19 bags in 24 attempts at the Triple-A level so his speed could be a definite asset for the slow afoot Blue Jays.
