    Rosenthal: Arencibia offered in packages for Jon Niese and Wade Davis

    Will Jays deal catcher, add pitcher?
    0 minutes ago by KenRosenthal

    While the Toronto Blue Jays are open to trading any of their three catchers, there is, well, a catch.

    “None is cheap,” a rival executive says, referring to the acquisition cost in a trade, not the players’ salaries.

    The Jays non-tendered Bobby Wilson on Friday night, leaving J.P. Arencibia, John Buck and Travis D’Arnaud as the remaining catchers on their 40-man roster.

    Arencibia, 26, is the most likely to be moved – and the Jays previously have talked about him in trades for pitchers such as Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Wade Davis and New York Mets left-hander Jon Niese, major-league sources say.

    The Jays might need to offer more than Arencibia to acquire such a pitcher, but aren’t necessarily eager to make that type of move. Arencibia is still a year away from arbitration, and the Jays control him for four more years.

    D’Arnaud, the team’s top catching prospect, did not play after June 25 last season due to a knee injury. Buck, 32, batted .192 with a .644 OPS for the Miami Marlins last season.

    As for starting pitching, it’s true that the Jays would like to find more even after acquiring right-hander Josh Johnson and lefty Mark Buehrle in their blockbuster with the Marlins.

    The team, however, seems more inclined to add depth than find an upgrade over its fifth starter, lefty J.A. Happ, sources say.

    Thus, the Jays could look to sign a low-end free agent as well as minor-league free agents, ensuring that they are better protected against injuries than they were last season.

    I'd do Niese for JPA but not Wade Davis for JPA. Wade Davis is not better then J.A. Happ. I'd slot in Happ 5th in our rotation over Davis and for all of JPA's faults i'd easily take him over Buck as the starting catcher..and make no mistake it would be Buck that would start the season off as the starting catcher and not TDA.

    I'd rather add to JPA and go for Dickey... the dude won the Cy Young and the Mets don't seem to be asking the world for him

    Don't know what you've been reading but the stuff I've read all says they want a huge offer to move him.

    Dickey would be better for next year but Niese is under team control for 5 more years at 5-6 million a season. He could be a good 3rd or great 4th stater for years. Dickey is still somewhat of a hit or miss to me even with the Cy Young. As for Davis no thanks unless there's more to the deal.

    Niese is what we all wished Brett Cecil could be, way back when he was still a prospect.

    **** i hope jpa is dealt haha

    his value may be at its peak right now. tons of teams are in dire need of a catcher. still relatively young. cheap and controllable. can hit bombs. and still has some "potential" in his resume ....

    they dont seem to be agreeing on the extension and if that continues to be the case, they will probably choose to deal him now rather than at the deadline

    Why not? Because TB would have to be complete morons to deal him in the division.

    Friedman of all GMs is smarter than that.
