The Blue Jays got a little bit better today — and the Red Sox’ road to this and future AL East crowns got a little tougher.
Toronto made a number of deals, the end result of which is Colby Rasmus wearing a Jays uniform.
Rasmus, just 24, is a legit stud. The center fielder has a .777 career OPS in three seasons, and hit 23 homers with 12 steals and a .361 OBP last season. Tons of potential there.
Meanwhile, Carlos Beltran is almost certain to wind up in San Francisco. So if you’re rooting for Boston to acquire a new outfielder at the deadline, Jeff Francoeur is your man.
