Blue Jays players that could be traded before next week's deadline

J.A. Happ Atkins says Jays deeper after trading lefty Happ for MLB-ready position players

He's done an admirable job with the Blue Jays this season, hitting 17 home runs in 98 games, but Solarte fell into a swoon since his early-season tear in April and May. He also hit.292 with six home runs and 32 RBIs in 61 appearances this season in Triple-A. With his free agency scheduled for 2022, Drury could become a mainstay in the Blue Jays's lineup for many years.

Atkins did not budge, and a day later it was Cashman who blinked, trading for Happ despite a price tag that rival executives considered to be a clear overpay for a rental. In 20 games, Happ has gone 10-6 with a 4.18 ERA and 1.18 WHIP, striking out 130 batters in 114 innings of work.

The two-time All-Star reliever, acquired by the Yankees from Baltimore late Tuesday night for Dillon Tate and two other minor leaguers, retired all three Thunder batters he faced on three pitches.

NY began the day 5 1/2 games behind Boston, the AL East leader. Brandon Drury, whom the Yankees acquired in the offseason, not only was not playing well, but didn't get much playing time due to the emergence of rookie Miguel Andujar. The good news for Toronto is that with increased playing time, Drury may see his offensive numbers climb, and they get a highly versatile defensive player. Before landing on the disabled list in mid-May, Stroman posted a 7.71 ERA in his first seven starts of the season. Drury, who has played every infield position this season except shortstop, is batting.176 in 18 games in the majors. In order to avoid having to play in the game, they would need to finish with a better record than the Boston Red Sox.

With the July 31 trade deadline still a few days ago, more minor leaguers could potentially be on the move. The Yankees have ten more games against the Red Sox and Happ will help the Yankees take the lead in the AL East over the Red Sox. "It felt like a stare-down contest", Cashman said. Although he hit.176 with just one home run and seven RBIs in 18 games this season for the Yankees, he recorded 13 homers and drove in 63 runs while hitting.267 in 135 games for the Arizona Diamondbacks past year.

The 23-year-old was selected by Oakland with the 24th overall pick in the 2013 amateur draft, was traded to the Chicago Cubs with Addison Russell and Dan Straily for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammell in July 2014, then dealt to the Yankees along with Gleyber Torres and Adam Warren for Aroldis Chapman in July 2016.

One thing working against the Blue Jays here is Stroman's value isn't particularly high. "The reason we got him is we really feel like this is a big league third baseman".
