The Blue Jays have their sights set on Dexter Fowler, at least that’s what Jon Heyman says.

The 30-year old put up a personal best in numbers in his championship winning season with .276/.393/.447. Fowler’s bat has never been a standout, but is has been consistent, and a guy in the batting lineup that the Blue Jays need after Bautista coming off of a less than impressive year. His glove isn’t to be ignored either; Fowler provides a solid defense in the outfield and it doesn’t look like his athleticism will be fading anytime soon.

Here’s what else is going on around the American League East.

Yankees fans can be difficult people, particularly when it comes to shopping for the holiday season. If you need some ideas for the Bronx Bomber lover in your life, Pinstripe Alley had made a master lists of gifts bound to get you bonus points.

With the new collective bargaining agreement reached, each team will have their own set of victories and losses before the season begins. The Red Sox are not immune to this change. What do you want to hear first, the good, the bad, or the meh?

The Orioles have expressed a lot of interest in Curtis Granderson. He’d be a great option for them in right field. But Jay Bruce? Hard pass.

Are the Rays on the hunt for their newest designated hitter? Their latest target of Kyle Schwarber may suggest so.

While it looks like Andrew McCutchen could be headed to the Nationals, it’s not too late for the Yankees to swoop in and steal him. Because let’s face it, he’d fix up that anemic outfield by just existing.

Here’s how the Blue Jays organization is going to be altered by the conclusions of the newest collective bargaining agreement. Hint: the new salary cap will be a big factor.
