Toronto Blue Jays infielder/outfielder Emilio Bonifacio, who was acquired in a trade with the Miami Marlins earlier this offseason, could be available, reports David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. #Braves interested in Bonifaciobefore got traded by MIA (Fredi G. had him w/Marlins), didn't know til this wk he might still be available — David O'Brien (@ajcbraves) December 5, 2012 The Blue Jays acquired Bonifacio in the mega-deal with the Marlins that also shipped Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle and Jose Reyes to Toronto. While he could be an everyday second baseman for the club, the Blue Jays also have Maicer Izturis on their roster. For this reason they may be more willing to listen to offers for Bonifacio. The Atlanta Braves had expressed interest in Bonifacio before he was traded to the Blue Jays, and they could be one potential suitor if Toronto does decide to start shopping him. Last season for the Marlins Bonifacio hit .258/.330/.316 over 244 at-bats while manning mostly center field. However, the 27-year-old has also played both corner outfield positions as well as second and third base and shortstop over his major league career.

Comparing J.P. Arencibia and Josh Thole

During the offseason there has been a lot of talk about the Mets and Blue Jays making a deal. On the surface it makes sense, as the Mets need outfielders and a catcher while the Blue Jays are looking for a front-end starter. The two teams seem to match up pretty well. For me the problem comes in the catching department. Toronto has prospect Travis d’Arnaud, who if he can stay healthy...

2012 Positional Ranking: LH Starters

Obviously the very top of this list looks different than it would have a month ago, when Justin Nicolino would have been the clear #1. Still the guy who inherits the top spot is deserving, and a rising star in the Blue Jays system. I've debated with myself quite a bit concerning the top three on this list, conflicted over the weight to give to various factors which i consider...
