Corey Hart, David DeJesus and Jayson Werth aren't on the market anymore, so it's no surprise that the Blue Jays are getting lots of calls about Jose Bautista. There's a limited selection of impact outfielders and Bautista leads the major leagues in homers and ranks among the league leaders in walks, OPS and outfield assists. Here's the latest on the versatile 29-year-old:
- The Giants and many others are in on Bautista, according to Jon Heyman of SI.com (Twitter link).
- Yesterday we heard that the Phillies were interested in Bautista, but the Blue Jays have since acquired Anthony Gose, a player the Jays coveted when he was in the Phillies organization.
