Paul Fry - LHP

Fry made it in to 48 games this year but had a hard time keeping runners off the bases. The 31-year-old southpaw had a 4.37 ERA but walked over 5 batters per nine innings and ultimately never showed enough consistent command to earn a shot in the big leagues. His track record in The Show suggests that he'll find a new home this offseason, but he'll need to prove that he's worth a spot on a big league roster moving forward.

Rowan Wick - RHP

Brought aboard in August, Wick made 20 appearances for the Buffalo Bisons down the stretch. In 21 innings of work, he notched 5 saves while striking out over 16 batters per nine innings(!!!). Walks have been an issue for him in the past, but he has almost 150 games of big league experience under his belt, so there will be interest in him this offseason.

Matt Peacock - RHP

Peacock is yet another arm the Jays had stashed in Triple-A with previous big league experience. This year, he had a 6.20 ERA across 21 outings, walking 17 and striking out 22 in just under 25 innings of work. He needs to work on his command and developing a true "out pitch", but he'll serve as minor league filler for a club in need of some additional depth in 2024.

Gabe Klobosits - RHP

Klobosits, a 6-foot-7 right-hander, made eight appearances in Indy Ball to start the year before earning the attention of the Blue Jays' decision makers. He made 14 appearances for the Bisons, posting a 4.74 ERA in 19 innings of work. He walked 12 and struck out 12 along the way.

Diego Linares - RHP

The 21-year-old Linares spent the majority of the 2023 season either unemployed or injured. He was released by the Phillies in April and did not latch on with the Blue jJays until the end of June. From there, he made just three appearances with 9 strikeouts and 2 walks in 7 innings of work before being placed on the 60-day IL at the end of July, ending his season.
