Kendrys Morales reportedly headed to the Blue Jays

Kendrys Morales reportedly headed to the Blue Jays

The soon to be 34-year-old Morales has been the designated hitter for the Kansas City Royals for two seasons after signing a two-year, $17 million contract before the 2015 season.

Morales' home runs, slugging percentage (.468) and on-base-plus-slugging percentage (.795) were all tops on the Royals among players who played in more than 60 games.

The 33-year-old has also played for the Angels, Mariners and Twins - collecting a career.273 batting average with 162 home runs and 586 RBI.

Instead, Morales departed to Canada with a three-year deal in his pocket and the Royals were left with nothing.

Scotland will also be missing key player Steven Fletcher who is going through rehabilitation following a knee surgery. I know there are leaders in the team, I know we've got great character so that isn't a question in our dressing room.

The 10 free agents who were extended qualifying offers must accept or decline by 5 p.m. today. But what impact will they have on the Jays keeping Encarnacion and/or Bautista? Maybe the team already feels his market will grow to a price they do not feel comfortable with for a slugger of Edwin's age. They were key cogs in an offense that propelled the Jays to back-to-back American League Championship Series appearances in 2015 and 2016, busting a 22-year playoff drought. Is a healthy Romo better than a young Prescott?Browns" decisions "make no sense' to WoodyCavs visit the White.

Then again, maybe this signing is an indication that the Jays would prefer to keep Jose Bautista. Pearce is somewhat of a utility player, but Rosenthal mentions that he would serve a platoon role at first base with incumbent Justin Smoak.

Morales, 33, likely will replace Encarnacion as DH. Encarnacion has received an offer from the Jays "but it's not where the camp wanted it to be", while Bautista is interested in signing with Red Sox, according to the Boston Globe.

Most important of all, this means that one of these two players will nearly certainly be gone.
