Jaime Garcia signing as the Jays 5th starter will keep Biagini in the pen and that is a good thing.

The Jays have apparently signed Jaime Garcia to round out the rotation. Coming off a couple of bad years but he's been an effective starter before and his career numbers are pretty good.

Solid back of the rotation pickup.

With the roster tweaks they've made, and if a couple of the starting pitchers remain healthy/rebound I actually think that wild card spot is possibly obtainable.

I Saw Jay McClement Score.

Well that seems like a smart thing to do to save 400 thousand bucks.

I dont know, it seems like Stroman has some paper thin skin and seems to lash out on Twitter over a lot of stuff.

That's sort of what I mean though. You know he's that kind of guy so you're going to go to the wall over a relatively small sum? I get you can't give the guy everything he wants but we're not talking millions here and you want to get him signed to a long term deal in the near future anyway.

If the Jays are going to keep pretending they're a mid-market team and spending like it they can't be too picky about what sorts of talented guys they try to keep around. The ace they have might have to be handled delicately. If they were willing to go out and spend on an Arrieta or Darvish they could be less willing to put up with nonsense. Seems like the risk outweighs the reward here.

It's sad to see Lawrie go out the way he did.  I would have rathered him over Solarte or Diaz as our infield backup.  He would have been a fan favorite here.  It must be injuries.  He's a very talented player.

So Donaldson is not signing here and he expects to be a free agent in August.  Hopefully the Jays can get something for him at the trade deadline.  If not they will at least get a compensatory draft pick.  I think with Guererro Junior coming up it kind of makes sense to let Donaldson walk.  Too bad.  He's an outstanding player.

Looks like the Yankees are very much interested in J.A. Happ:
