The Options Bus
I will admit that this one is cheating in that it really isn’t just one singular player but involves at least three, and potentially more depending on who you view being within the bigger picture.
So far this year, the Blue Jays have used 27 different pitchers due to poor performance, various injuries, and because of bullpen pitchers being overworked when the starters weren’t able to go deep into games. Numerous players like Jeremy Beasley, Trent Thornton, Matt Gage, Casey Lawerence, and Julian Merryweather have ridden the options train on numerous occasions this year, and if the Blue Jays acquire two to three bullpen arms or even a starter over the next week, there is a chance that the train isn’t needed at the station anymore.
The whole point of rotating between these players was because they needed length out of the bullpen for the reasons I mentioned above. If the club acquires a couple of solid veteran relief arms and maybe even another starter, with Max Castillo on the roster or Ross Stripling/Yusei Kikuchi potentially in the bullpen, they can get the innings and length they need should the situation arise like a freak injury or a starter getting knocked around early.
