Blue Jay Hunter Podcast Episode 2: The Bautista Contract Fallout, Backup Catchers, Lefty Relievers

The Blue Jay Hunter podcast is back for a second week. This time, talking about the fallout from the Jose Bautista contract signing. Plus, finding a suitable backup catcher for the Blue Jays, and mulling over the lefty reliever options.

Since recording, the Blue Jays have signed Jarrod Saltalamacchia to a minor league deal with incentives if he makes the big league roster. And for some reason I mentioned that Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was named the third best prospect in baseball? It’s actually only the third best third base prospect in baseball.
