The Blue Jays have made more moves than any other team to this point in the offseason, completing six waiver claims, a managerial deal, two multiyear free agent contracts and a blockbuster trade. Here’s the latest from Toronto...
- The Blue Jays are focusing on veteran managers, Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com reports. They’ve told some people they’d prefer to hire an established manager “with an edge,” according to Knobler. The Blue Jays have spoken to Hargrove, but they haven’t spoken to Jim Fregosi, Jim Riggleman or Bobby Valentine and don’t appear to have contacted Lou Piniella.
- The Blue Jays have asked former Mariners executives about former Seattle manager Mike Hargrove, Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun reports (on Twitter). Hargrove, 63, has experience managing the Indians, Orioles and Mariners. The Indians made it to the World Series in 1995 and 1997 under Hargrove, who played at the MLB level for 12 seasons.
- The Blue Jays-Marlins blockbuster is still on the path to approval, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports (all Twitter links). The delay in announcing the deal indicates that commissioner Bud Selig isn’t pleased with the Marlins. Though Selig can take his time evaluating the trade, the teams could get approval as soon as today and it’d be a shock if it doesn’t go through.
