Blue Jays Offseason Rumours – October 31, 2012

A few odds and ends, as per MLB Trade Rumours:

-The Blue Jays have exercised their 2013 option for left-hander Darren Oliver, the team announced. The club also declined their option for Rajai Davis, but re-signed him to a one-year deal worth $2.5MM.

Oliver, 42, pitched to a 2.06 ERA in 56 2/3 innings this season. He’ll earn $3MM next year. The 32-year-old Davis hit .257/.309/.378 with 46 stolen bases this year. His club option was worth $3MM. 

-The Indians announced their 2013 coaching staff, and it includes Sandy Alomar Jr. as the bench coach, former Astros manager Brad Mills as the third base coach and former MLB catcher Kevin Cash as the bullpen coach.

Alomar isn’t out of the running for the Blue Jays‘ managerial opening, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca notes.

-Of the team’s four free agents — Kelly Johnson, Brandon Lyon, Jason Frasor and Carlos Villanueva — the most likely to return is Frasor or Lyon. The bullpen has become a position of depth, however, with the acquisitions of Steve Delabar and Brad Lincoln. Sergio Santos should return in 2013 as well. That could mean all four free agents will find new homes.

Anibal Sanchez will probably get an “extended look,” according to Chisholm, but it’s more likely that GM Alex Anthopoulos will upgrade the rotation via trade.

-Free agent starters Ryan Dempster and Edwin Jackson are targets for Toronto, Blair reports. Either right-hander would provide the Blue Jays with some certainty in the middle of a rotation that struggled mightily in 2012 due to injuries and poor performances. Free agents can only sign with their own teams until Saturday.

    No matter what, don’t let anything stop you from your exercises and routines
    every single day. For example you might do a video that discusses the importance
    of monitoring a person’s carbohydrate intake. Numbers of reasons
    could be given about why should you lose weight and
    join a weight loss center Miami; you only know how odd it looks to be
    fat, then extra weight makes you feel lethargic, and obesity is the root of
    many cardiovascular diseases.
