DONE DEAL: Blue Jays and Marlins Complete a Trade

The Toronto Blue Jays continue to make moves as they have agreed to a deal with the Miami Marlins that sees infielder Joe Panik and a minor-league pitcher head to the sunshine state, in exchange for RHP Adam Cimber and outfielder Corey Dickerson.

Cimber has been on the Jays radar for weeks and they have finally landed their fish. The submarine reliever is 30 years old and this season has appeared in 33 games, posting an 1-2 record with a 2.88 ERA. The 34.1 innings of work has seen him strike out 21 batters. He doesn't throw super hard and will see his fastball around the 89/90mph mark and has a nasty wipe out slider that generates soft contact. 

Dickerson on the other hand has shown some pop in his bat the past few years, and will be used as an extra outfielder and potentially a bat off the bench. He will need to get healthy first before the Jays can see what they have.  

The Blue Jays lose Panik who has been a back up infielder for the team, who has a ton of depth, not only on their current roster but the team is loaded with young talent at SS/2B/3B. Look for the Jays to add at least one more arm to the bullpen and another starter before the end of July.
