Alex Gonzalez has been a tremendous addition to the Blue Jays but he was a rental, a one year player here who presumably wanted to get traded to a contender. From that perspective well played AA.
Tim Collins is a favourite here at Da Box and should be a major league reliever but again he is high risk due to his size and relievers do not have huge value in trades.
Tyler Pastornicky is also a good prospect but the Jays are well stocked at shortstop now and between Justin Jackson and Ryan Goins they have a replacement of sorts.
Jo-Jo reyes is only 25 years old and has been hanging around the major leagues for a few years now. He is currently back in AAA and has a 5.70 ERA there. He is left handed but hopefully the Jays new and improved scouting department has seen some potemtial in him.
Yunel Escobar is key to the deal. Escobar is 27 years old, born in Cuba, and is having a down year after two good seasons. His three year OPS is .766; .812; and .618. Shortstops are hard to find and the Jays have been looking for a while. which Escobar are the Jays getting? Hopefully the good one.
