Blue Jays about to be tested on the fly in fast-moving pitching market - Sportsnet.ca

With a projected payroll of just $64 million, according to Cot’s Baseball Contracts, the Blue Jays have considerable financial flexibility. Squandering that with a reactive overpay or two would be foolish at this point in the rebuilding process. The Blue Jays are in all likelihood a .500 team next year with visions of contention in 2021.

But on the other hand, what’s the point of having financial flexibility if you don’t actually use it? The Blue Jays’ need for pitching remains as clear as ever. Now’s the time to read the market, and adjust course a little if needed. At some point, those offers the Blue Jays are making will need to turn into deals.
