Blue Jays Offer Arb To Scutaro, Barajas

The Blue Jays offered arbitration to free agents Marco Scutaro (A) and Rod Barajas (B), tweets Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald

Most believe Scutaro will turn down the offer in search of a multiyear contract.  If so, the team signing him will have to give up a draft pick.  The Jays could net two picks for Scutaro and one for Barajas, assuming both turn down the arb offers by December 7th.

Keep this in mind with Scutaro - while he is a Type A, his 83.069 number is outranked by Rafael Soriano, John Lackey, Mike Gonzalez, Johnny Damon, Jason Bay, Jose Valverde, and Matt HollidayIt is possible the Blue Jays will not receive a first-round pick for Scutaro, instead getting a second or even third-rounder along with their supplemental pick.
