Jerry Crasnick has some good info for ESPN: the Blue Jays are "closing in on a deal" with designated hitter Frank Thomas. It seems that a two-year deal is in the works.
As Thomas’s excellent comeback season wound down, it seemed apparent that he would leave the A’s. If Gary Sheffield commands a two-year, $28MM extension, Thomas should be good for two years and at least $20MM.
The Blue Jays have a ton of needs, but plenty of free cash.
