Teams have four days left to make any more additions to their roster before they would become ineligible for the post-season. While players are still available, one of the most active teams at the trade deadline, the Toronto Blue jays, appear to be done making moves for this season, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com.
"I'd say unlikely at this point," Anthopoulos said on Wednesday evening when asked about the possibility of another trade. "We have five days left, anything can happen, but right now I wouldn't expect us to do anything."
Anthopoulos was a busy man back in July, bringing in two of the biggest names of the trade market. One that was expected to move in David Price, and another one that shocked the baseball world in shortstop Troy Tulowitzki.
That doesn't include Ben Revere, LaTroy Hawkins, Mark Lowe and Cliff Pennington, whom Anthopoulos also acquired. Thus far it has paid dividends. Since the deadline on July 31st, the Blue Jays have gone 18-4 and now hold a two game lead over the New York Yankees in the American League East.
Instead of making a trade, the Blue Jays will do what a number of teams are doing and wait for the rosters to expand in a couple of days.
AA on plans for Sept. callups: "We’re going to keep it as small a group as we can." Prob 6-8, only guys likely to play.— Shi Davidi (@ShiDavidi) August 26, 2015
In terms of baseball, or anything for that matter, never say never. But the Blue Jays appear content with what they have done, and the standings back them up.
