Re. John Mayberry Jr.

September 1, 2014

I guess you can call this the obligatory reaction post.

John Mayberry Jr. follows in his father’s footsteps and is now a Toronto Blue Jay.

His career stats are alright. I’m not crazy about what he’s done so far this season. The fact he’s coming off the DL after a wrist injury is a little concerning. Nevertheless, he provides another option for the outfield. This is useful since Colby and Melky become free agents at the end of the season.

In exchange, the Jays gave up a minor leaguer who just reached the AA level.

Overall, I’m indifferent. Jays get a player with “alright” big league numbers, for a player who may or may not make it to the big leagues. Safe gamble.
