Blue Jays sign Kendrys Morales


Registered Member
Welp..... so much for Edwin Encarnacion returning. Jays signed Kendrys Morales on a 3-year $33 million dollar deal. Honestly, this is very good value for a hitter of Morales' calibre. Switch hitter, has really good pop. Crushed 30 homers at Kauffman stadium, which is not necessarily a homer-friendly ball park. Obviously he's not going to replicate Edwin Encarnacion, but he's certainly a worthwhile option making $14 million less.

Jon Morosi tweeted earlier this afternoon that despite the Jays signing Kendrys Morales, Edwin Encarnacion's agent says that Edwin is still talking to Ross Atkins and is still willing to stay in Toronto. My guess is that it's gonna depend on how much money the Red Sox will offer him to take David Ortiz's spot on the roster.

For the money, it's a good deal, but I don't have major confidence that he can keep up the type of offence he's shown over the last few years. It's weird.

None the less, they can still afford Edwin, and I hope they give him the money he and his agent are asking.
