Blue Jays' Drew Storen: Will decide on closer in Spring Training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew Storen will compete for the closer job, but general manager Ross Atkins said the team doesn't expect to choose a closer until midway through Spring Training if not later, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

After bringing in Storen over the offseason, he will compete with Roberto Osuna for the closer job. After Osuna saved 20 games for the Toronto Blue Jays last season, they still sought to improve their pen by bringing in Storen, who saved 29 games last season and saved 43 in 2011. This good be a lengthy battle between the two as both have the stuff and experience to close for the Jays, who should be considered the front-runners for the AL East.

Blue Jays' Roberto Osuna: Jays to determine closer during spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toronto Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said that the team doesn't expect to choose a closer between Roberto Osuna and Drew Storen until midway through spring training, if not later, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.

The acquisition of Storen in a trade with the Nationals in early January has added a layer of confusion for fantasy owners trying to determine the Jays' plans for the ninth inning to begin 2016. While Storen's experience may ultimately lead him to the job, Osuna proved capable of holding down the job and pitching at a high level upon arrival last season. Both players have the potential to finish as a top-10 closer if they can secure the job all season.

Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Inks two-year deal with Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Josh Donaldson agreed to a two-year, $29 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday to avoid arbitration, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

Donaldson will have a tough task duplicating his numbers from the 2015 season after posting 41 home runs, 123 RBI, and 122 runs in what was easily the best statistical campaign of his five-year career. Nevertheless, he'll be touted as a first-round power hitter under most formats who's played in 158 games during each of his last three seasons.

Blue Jays' Jesse Chavez: Wins arbitration case, gets $4 million
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jesse Chavez won his arbitration case and will make $4 million in 2016, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports.

While arbitration trials aren't the best way to get on the right foot with a new team, Chavez will bring a solid back-of-the-rotation presence to a staff that needs starting depth. The $4 million salary is a $1.85 million raise from last season.

Blue Jays' Chad Jenkins: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chad Jenkins was designated for assignment Saturday to make room on the 40-man roster for Gavin Floyd, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportnet reports.

Jenkins had been a steady performer out of the bullpen before 2015, averaging a 3.25 ERA and 32.1 innings per year in the three seasons prior. However, a brutal spring and mediocre results last season made the out-of-options reliever expendable. If he manages to clear waivers, he'll likely go back to Triple-A Buffalo.
