The Toronto Blue Jays have several holes to fill on their roster after a disappointing 2013 campaign. While the team's top priority is reportedly addressing its starting rotation, general manager Alex Anthopoulos also "seems determined to make an upgrade behind the plate," according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com. J.P. Arencibia was the team's starting catcher this season. While the 27-year-old hit 21 home runs for the Blue Jays, he struggled mightily overall, posting a batting line of only .194/.227/.365. Including this season, Arencibia has now hit .212/.258/.408 over four seasons in the majors. There was a time not long ago when the Blue Jays seemed to have too much talent at the catcher position. That changed with Arencibia's drop off and the trade that sent top prospect Travis d'Arnaud to the New York Mets in exchange for R.A. Dickey. Now Toronto is left looking for answers behind the plate. While Arencibia's batting line was about as ugly as it gets, Chisholm notes that it's not a guarantee that the Blue Jays address the position this offseason. There are several free agents that could represent upgrades, including Brian McCann, A.J. Pierzynski and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, but none are clear fits for Toronto. One intriguing option would be Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos. He's known to interest the Blue Jays, but he would cost a pretty penny to acquire.
