Blue Jays Acquire Mike Jacobs

The Blue Jays acquired Mike Jacobs from the Mets for a player to be named later, tweets Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger.  Jacobs, 29, has spent most of the season at Triple A.  He's had multiple stints at the level, but this year he's hitting .260/.313/.478 in 371 plate appearances.

Jacobs cleared waivers and accepted a Triple A assignment after being designated in April.

Just a depth move. He’ll take Wallace’s 1B spot in AAA.

Just did – don’t feel any different than before. EDIT: I actually feel worse.Overbay will most likely finish the year in a Jays uniform.

Oh, the wonderful “player to be named later” situation.

unless it’s someone from the jersey shore… the mets win this deal.

Jacobs for JWoww. Put her in a bikini, heels and the Mr Met head. Have her stand on the dugout. I’m all for this deal.

Omar won a trade, YES!

Omar’s best moves are undoing his own moves. Bad sign.

Great, now we’ve got baseball’s worst 1st baseman to go with E5 – baseball’s worst 3rd baseman.

hopefully this is because other moves (buck/overbay) trades are in the work. dont see the logic if its just to replace wallace at AAA, are the jays so hard up for prospects at 1b that they cant promote someone?

No first bagger in the jays system deserves to be moved up to triple A, the only offensive players that should probably be up in triple A are Jeroloman(Catcher, old for his level, major league caliber defense) and Thames but he isn’t a first basemen and the promotion is debatable.

In what world is Mastroianni not ready to be in AAA?

Maybe Jeroloman will be moved up and JPA moved to first?

Jacobs is a jays type player lol, terrible average and swings for the fences, wouldn’t be surprised if he spends some time with the big club

He will be the jose bautista of next season.

He’s probably going to AAA. AA prob traded nothing. Its a whatever trade.

I don’t understand. This deal doesn’t have anything to do with the White Sox.

ohh thank you! I have been wondering who the Jays were going to use at 1B next season to replace Wallace, now I know. phew I will sleep a lot easier now, this is awesome! good job AA, watch out Yankees!!
^sarcasm^

It’s unfortunate people are going to assume this has any effect on the TORONTO Blue Jays. I see this is just someone who will take over 1B in AAA and that’s it. I doubt Jacobs has any playing time in Toronto next season. he does have 15 HR in AAA but with this line- .260/.313/.478/.791

I’m assuming this is a triple A move so I really don’t care about it

Well uhhhhhh… Nice?

Sorry guys, I am still in shock that the Mets GM made a good move…

Blue Jays MLB message board is going to blow up now, calling at least four fire AA posts.

Nice guy and a clubhouse favorite. Unfortunately, those two things don’t translate into the ability to know the strike zone or make consistent contact.

ClarenceGaston

YES now we have out 1B of the future. Great Move! If he is not the 1B of the future let’s package him with Downs and send him to Cincy for Aroldis Chapman!

Pretty much lol

Braves trade for Alex Gonzalez. Phillies trade for Roy Oswalt. Mets trade for a player to be named later. Keepin’ it competitive in the NL East.

Chris Solberg

Don’t worry Omar will make up for this trade with an ugly one by tomorrow….

Jacobs will fill the void at Triple A for the time being.

Once Overbay is traded, it will clear up room on the roster, where the jays will either call up a pitcher or settle with Jacobs as a bat of the bench.

Another scenario is that Lind Moves to first from DH for this season and the forthcoming.
