MLB Rumors: Rival Execs Expect Jays to Trade Catcher

It's a luxury that very few teams can afford. Three top-flight major league catchers. Most teams are lucky to have one capable backstop. The Toronto Blue Jays are going to have to make a decision, and rival execs believe that one of Alejandro Kirk, Danny Jansen or rookie Gabriel Moreno will be on the move.

According to MLB Insider Jon Morosi, "multiple rival execs I’ve spoken with at the GM Meetings" believe that Toronto will be trading one of their catchers. They have other positions they need to strengthen, including the starting pitching and bullpen, and dealing from a strength is the best way to do it. 

It's not a bad position to be in, but the real problem for the Jays is deciding which ones to keep. There's a great case to be made for each one of them. 

Kirk made his first All-Star team this season, and is simply a flat-out hitter. He batted .285 this season with 14 home runs, and is even much improved behind the plate. And boy, is he fun to watch.

Jansen started coming into his own at the plate this season, hitting 15 home runs in just 215 at-bats. He also posted the highest batting average (.260) and OPS (.855) of his career. By far. 

At just 22, Moreno was the top prospect in the Jays' system this year, and he's already proven that he can hit major league pitching. He also sports a little versatility, able to play a bit at second base and in the outfield. 

A tough decision ahead for the Blue Jays, but according to the reports, one that they will eventually have to deal with.
