Astros and Blue Jays

Post by jakapono24 » Mon Jun 29, 2020 3:45 pm

The Blue Jays are proud to announce a deal!

Houston receives:
3B - Miguel Andujar - Buffalo Bisons (AAA) - (100% Salary retained)
SP - Chris McCarthy - Dunedin Blue Jays (A)

Toronto receives:
CL - Dellin Betances - MLB - (100% Salary retained)

Instead of waiting until the deadline, we have decided to make an aggressive deal for the extra month of value. Dellin Betances is one of the premier relievers in baseball and makes our team better today and, most importantly (if we are so fortunate), in the post season. An important component to this deal is the salary retention, as our payroll is nearing all-time highs. Losing Andujar and McCarthy is tough; Andujar looks to be an average-to-above-average 3rd baseman and McCarthy, I believe, will be a really solid starter. This is a lot to give up for a rental, but who knows how the market looks on July 31st. All-in-all, we're extremely excited to get another late inning reliever - even if it's becoming overkill at this point - and hopefully make a deep run. Thanks to Glenn for the talks and enjoy those two guys, they're gonna be studs!

Trade has been submitted in-game.

Astros confirm.

As we are under .500 almost into July, we decided to move Dellin since he is a FA this offseason and had no desire to resign with us right now. 3B has been a problem for us and Andujar can help there, while we continue to stockpile pitching prospects. Thanks Jason and good luck the rest of the way!
