The Toronto Blue Jays continue to leave no stone unturned in their efforts to better the club for the upcoming 2021 campaign. The brain trust have already invested an MLB high $184.5 million on five free agent signings thus far this offseason.

Yesterday, Toronto signed free agent shortstop Marcus Semien which definitely muddies the infield complexion, however, it appears he is going to take over the every day second base responsibilities and fill in at shortstop from time to time when Bo Bichette needs a rest.

With Travis Shaw and Joe Panik no longer in the picture for the Blue Jays, it is just Biggio and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. as the only remaining possible internal options. Even though Vladdy has third base aspirations, I do not see him being there on a regular basis in 2021.

So as it stands right now, Cavan Biggio will in all likelihood shift to the hot corner but that is not written in stone and It appears they value his ability to be a super utility type player getting reps all over the diamond.

Here are some viable third base options exploring the remaining free agents, possible trade scenarios and internal options including who is ready on the farm.
