The Toronto Blue Jays are in the middle of an extremely important offseason for the direction of the club. Last winter, Daulton Varsho, Erik Swanson, Kevin Kiermaier and Chris Bassitt were brought aboard and each played major roles in the 2023 regular season.
This offseason is going to feature many of the same types of moves. With each addition, whether it be via free agent or trade acquisition, corresponding moves will need to be made around the 40-man roster. As things currently stand, the Blue Jays' 40-man is at 38 after the additions of Brendon Little and Adam Macko.
This means that two more players can be added to the team without there needing to be an exposure to waivers. However, this is an offseason where the Jays need to add, add, add. With some of the very biggest names atop their priority list, Toronto will need to strike hard and strike often. Surely there will be more than two moves made, so players on the roster bubble will likely be sent packing.
At the deadline where teams needed to determine which players they will (and will not) tender contracts to, Adam Cimber was the lone Blue Jays player non-tendered. Surprisingly, a few other players at the bottom of the 40-man roster survived this round of cuts.
Let's take a look at some of the players who weren't non-tendered, but could soon lose their grip on a roster spot.
