A job published this week on the MLB portal mentions, perhaps surprisingly, the Toronto Blue Jays as one of the teams to which Juan Soto could be traded.
The Canadian team is one of the organizations discussed by the Major Leagues as contenders for the signature of Shohei Ohtani, giving a sign of their intentions for 2024.
In Toronto they need to add hitters to increase the offense and Soto fits the bill perfectly, considering they currently don’t have a designated hitter or strong left fielder.
Additionally, it was a successful strategy to “steal” him from division rivals, such as the New York Yankees. There are many reasons to have the 25-year-old Dominican in the lineup, and just remember that he is coming off hitting 35 home runs and driving in 109 runs.
Adding Soto to their core of young, talented players could be what the Blue Jays have been missing to make a run in the postseason. The central point of discussion is whether they have what it takes to convince the San Diego Padres to give them the star.
In Toronto they will not fire Vladimir Guerrero Jr. if they can get away with it, even though management revealed that they have received calls asking about the stocky first baseman.
So the package they will offer for Soto will not include the son of the Hall of Fame member but could include the name Cavan Biggio, outfielder Daulton Varsho and prospects such as left-handed pitcher Ricky Tiedemann and infielder Orelvis Martínez
