Melky no longer an option for Jays?

The Toronto Blue Jays' already impressive lineup looks even better following Friday night's blockbuster deal with the Oakland Athletics that brings Josh Donaldson north of the border.

“The acquisition now gives the Blue Jays one of the strongest trios of hitters in the majors as Donaldson, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion all ranked in the top 10 in the AL in home runs in 2014 with a combined 98. On top of that, they added Russell Martin, who posted a .400 on-base percentage with the Pirates,” writes David Schoenfield of ESPN.com.

With the lineup even stronger, it calls into question whether the Jays still have the need or desire to bring back free agent left fielder Melky Cabrera, who hit .301 with a .458 slugging percentage last season. “With Donaldson now on board, perhaps the Jays set their sights on an outfielder with more modest salary demands,” suggests Mike Ziesberger of the Toronto Sun.
