Blue Jays trade rumors: Emilio Bonifacio, Melky Cabrera on the block

Jason Miller

Bonifacio is the most likely Blue Jay to be dealt, according to a report.

The Toronto Blue Jays have been quiet to this point on the trade market, but might look to sell a couple of veterans within the next 24 hours. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the most likely Jay to be dealt is Emilio Bonifacio, and Bob Nightengale of USA Today says that the team is also looking to move Melky Cabrera.

Bonifacio is hitting .214 with 2 HR and 15 RBI in 84 games on the year, and is under team control through next season. The 28-year old's speed and versatility may make him attractive to teams looking for a bench player on the trade market. The Royals are known to be looking for a second baseman, but have their sights set on higher-level players than Bonifacio.

Cabrera may be suspended due to his connection to the Biogenesis scandal, so he is unlikely to be attractive to teams. The 28-year old has hit .281 with 3 HR and 30 RBI in 86 games on the year.

The Blue Jays are unlikely to move pending free agent Josh Johnson due to his poor performance so far this season and perceived low value. Big bats Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista have drawn interest from teams like the Rangers, but Toronto has yet to indicate interest in moving either.

In terms of adding players, the Jays have been linked to Bud Norris, but do not appear to be involved anymore. They could look to add a starter before the clock strikes 4 tomorrow.
