The Toronto Blue Jays have been bolstering their roster this winter.

That trade would gain them Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle among others. Yet, the Blue Jays do not have a manger yet. That may change soon. Reports say that the Blue Jays are close to announcing their next manager. The two finalist for the position appear to be Jim Tracy and Jim Riggleman.
