The Toronto Blue jays have made qualifying offers to Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista. The offers are for 1 year at 17.5 million per season. Last year Bautista made 14 million and Edwin pulled in 10 million. In making a qualifying offer, if the 2 Blue Jays sign somewhere else the Jays will get draft pick compensation. Edwin’s agent has stated that at least 11 teams are interested in signing him, and that he could fetch 125 Million over 5 years. That might be too rich for the Toronto ball team.
The Blue Jays did not make qualifying offers to R.A Dickey, Brett Cecil, and Michael Saunders.
