On Friday evening, the Toronto Blue Jays promoted one of their premier prospects, Spencer Horwitz, for another go-round at the big league level. He'd been swinging one of the hottest bats in all of Triple-A prior to the well-deserved promotion.

In a corresponding move, the club elected to designate Cavan Biggio for assignment. Biggio, a long-time utility player who'd filled every role imaginable for the Jays since debuting in 2019, will likely see his tenure in Toronto end with a whimper rather than a bang.

With this move, though, the Blue Jays sent a message. Fail to perform, and you're gone. This ruthless tactic showed that there's not going to be any patience with players who consistently fail to get it done at the game's highest level. Biggio, who just recently hit five years of big league service time and rejected an assignment to Triple-A, could not be kept around anymore with the embarrassing stat line he'd sported through 44 games this season.

Swapping out Biggio's bat for one of Horwitz's caliber should pay dividends fairly quickly for the Blue Jays. However, the moves shouldn't be done. With a few more big league-ready players in the minors, it's time for the Jays to put their money where their mouth is and make a few more tough decisions to prove they're serious about contention.

And we're not even only talking about position players. Sure, there are a few of them on the 26-man active roster that need to be sent packing, but it's not only hitters. Some pitchers on the fringe of a roster spot could also be seeing their time in the bigs winding down if they are unable to turn it around in the immediate future.

Let's dive in. Here are four more Blue Jays players whose jobs are in jeopardy now that Cavan Biggio is off the roster.
