4 Blue Jays players on the trade block after the Isiah Kiner-Falefa signing

With the Blue Jays' free agent signing of utility-man Isiah Kiner-Falefa, there's a surplus of big-league ready talent in Toronto's infield that leaves room for potential moves.

Cavan Biggio

Cavan Biggio has showed instances of prowess in his ability to man plenty of positions in and around the diamond with the Blue Jays, but the addition of IKF threatens his role as a utilityman. While Biggio's 2023 season leaves a lot to be desired, his second-half performance was one of nearly All-Star calibre. In the latter half of 2023, he slashed .272/.404/.765 and boasted a wRC+ of 124, which came in stark contrast to his abysmal start to the year. Throughout Biggio's tenure with the team, his role in Toronto's lineup has changed vastly from a star-studded second baseman prospect to a fringe infielder to his current multifaceted utility role.

Biggio could certainly fetch suitors on the trade market and could represent a fair amount of trade value in place of prospects the Jays may not be too keen on moving. If he can find himself on a roster where he can solidify his playing time over a longer stint than a platoon role, he'll likely find success with his talent. Biggio saw a lot of success at the hot corner over the last year or two, and if any teams are in dire need of a third baseman he'd certainly be a welcome sight.

Although Biggio's not the first name the Jays might look to move following the IKF signing, his role on this team is certainly under question. However, this move might prove fruitful for the 28-year-old Biggio and he might be able to hone in on his utility role with help from Kiner-Falefa, who has already won a Gold Glove at third base. Biggio's position on the Blue Jays, along with his relatively cheap arbitration value, should keep him on this team for at least the foreseeable future. That is, barring a return of his early 2023 self.
