The Toronto Blue Jays are still very much in "add mode", despite the fact that they have tried and failed to land some of the game's biggest stars in Juan Soto and Shohei Ohtani.
With Soto heading to the division rival Yankees and Ohtani signing an absolutely ridiculous contract with the Dodgers, the Jays are left to pick from the best of the rest. There are certainly some impact players still available, but none that could come close to the production these two juggernauts have.
By now, Jays fans are undoubtedly tired of hearing about the fact that their team's pursuit of these players did not come to fruition. We're not here to dwell on that. The fact of the matter is that the Jays are a team that chases after the best talent out there every time they're available. Really, all teams should be doing the same. When a Soto or Ohtani is available for the taking, you'd be foolish not to at least kick the tires.
But that's behind us now. Instead, there are three of the top-remaining players this offseason, one on the trade market and two free agents, that the Jays are reportedly pursuing. There's a difference between players that would make nice fits on the roster and ones that the club are actively looking at. In this instance, the club is rumored to be actively pursuing these names.
Let's dive in to the rumor mill and share what we're hearing about the next group of targets on the Blue Jays' radar.
