Sandy Leon

Sandy Leon was once the starting catcher for the division rival Boston Red Sox, so the Jays would be familiar with him. One caveat though is that he’s never played in more than 100 games in a season, as the most contests he’s appeared in in one year is 89 in 2018.

Last season, he served as the backup catcher for the Cleveland Indians where he played in 25 games and slashed .136/.296/.242.

He has a career fielding percentage of .995 behind the dish, and has thrown out 33.5% of would be base stealers.

Austin Romine

Austin Romine shared playing time with Greyson Greiner in Detroit last season as he appeared in 37 game slashing .238/.259/.323 with 31 hits. He holds a career fielding percentage of .996 behind the plate.

Romine may be seeking a major league deal, but at his age of 32 and a with a career batting average of .239, he ultimately may not get one. He could look to join a contender on a minor league contract, which is where the Blue Jays could come in.

Cameron Rupp

Cameron Rupp hasn’t appeared in the major leagues since 2017 but he could be exactly what the Blue Jays would be looking for, a catcher who’s not expecting to make the major leagues but can provide depth in the minors in case of injury.

From 2013-2017 with the Philadelphia Phillies, he slashed .234/.298/.407 with 39 home runs and a fielding percentage of .992. He’s caught 31.3% of runners stealing in the big leagues.
