The Blue Jays have traded Ben Revere to the Nationals for Drew Storen. The Jays trade from a surplus to fortify a weakness. Michael Saunders and Dalton Pompey are now the left fielders. Meanwhile Storen was unhappy backing up Papelbon. Who is the closer now in Toronto?
Meanwhile Jeff Blair tonight is saying that he has heard that Dickey is being offered around. More to come???
Update: The Nationals have thrown in some cash and the Jays will give the Nationals a player to be named later, which could be anything from a non prospect to a decent player.
Revere is projected to deliver 1.7 WAR in 2016 (Fangraphs). Storen had a 1.1 WAR in 2015.
