A lengthy list of every player the Blue Jays could have an eye on in free agency.
Every offseason, teams look to the free agent market to fill needs and weaknesses on their roster. The Toronto Blue Jays are in no different situation than any other team.
Prior to last offseason, the Blue Jays more often signed free agents to one-year deals in hopes of flipping them for prospects at the deadline. Some examples of this were Eric Sogard, Freddy Galvis, Daniel Hudson and others. Last offseason, it was a bit of a change. While they signed guys like Anthony Bass and Joe Panik to one-year deals last offseason, they locked in a few guys for the future like Tanner Roark and Hyun Jin Ryu.
While one-year deals occur for almost every team every offseason, especially with relief pitchers, expect the Blue Jays to attempt to bring guys in on long-term pacts. They’ve apparently already been aggressive in their free agent pursuit and made one move by bringing back Robbie Ray on a one-year deal for $8 million.
Signing Ray was expected to be one of many moves coming this offseason. The Blue Jays are also expected to be one of the bigger spenders this winter. While many teams will probably be hesitant to spend due to financial losses they suffered from no fans in the seats during the 2020 season, the Blue Jays have a financial advantage due to their ownership background.
As the Blue Jays will be one of the most active teams during the offseason, they’ll be linked to a bevy of free agents. Here is every single player that is a free agent (excluding international players) that could realistically interest the Blue Jays.
