Justin Wilson

The Blue Jays are rumoured to be looking to add a lefty to their bullpen and Justin Wilson could be a fit. He’s spent the past two seasons with the Mets recording a 2.92 ERA over 68 games.

In his career, he has a 3.27 ERA over 480 appearances with 474 strikeouts over 355 hits given up which brings his opponent average to .223 in 429.1 innings pitched.

Being a durable reliever over his career, he may seek a two-year deal and the Blue Jays could do that if they are keen on adding him to their pen.

Andrew Chafin

Andrew Chafin spent the 2020 season with the Diamondbacks and Cubs where he struggled to the tune of a 6.52 ERA in just 9.2 innings. Prior to the shortened season though, he was a very reliable reliever.

From 2017-2019, he appeared in at least 70 games each season recording 57 holds and a combined 3.46 ERA over those three seasons. His career consists of a 3.67 ERA over 341 games with an opponent average of .238 and 82 holds.

Chafin will be looking to rebuild his value at the age of 31 next season and if the Blue Jays view his 2020 season as an outlier, he could be brought in to pitch out of the bullpen.

Tony Watson

Tony Watson had a good 2020 season with the Giants posting a 2.50 ERA, and opponent average of .191 and 10 holds in 21 games.

He’s better suited as a set-up man, but does have some experience as a closer (32 career saves).

He has a career ERA of 2.80 with a 40-25 record over 627 relief appearances with an opponent average of .226.

There would be absolutely no complaints seeing Watson in a Blue Jays jersey.
