- Marco Scutaro – The Mariners and Red Sox are following Scutaro, who makes just $1.1MM. The Blue Jays will have every reason to ask for a lot in return, because Scutaro profiles as a Type A free agent. The Jays can obtain a first rounder and a sandwich pick for losing Scutaro if they offer him arbitration, so they figure to demand a lot.
- Jason Frasor – Most contenders have at least some interest in Frasor, who becomes a free agent after next year.
- Scott Downs – A solid late-inning reliever, Downs also becomes a free agent after 2010.
- Rod Barajas – A free agent-to-be, Barajas could draw interest from the Cubs.
- Scott Rolen – A number of contenders would love to add Rolen's bat and glove, but he's out of reach for some teams because his contract pays him $11MM this year and as much in 2010.
But remember, the Jays believe they can contend next year, especially if Halladay's around, so there's no guarantee any of these players will be traded.
