Well, that was fast. In an effort to bulk up their run total, and probably to take away from the Yankees strategy, the Blue Jays swept in and signed Kendrys Morales to what appears to be a 3 year deal.
Ken Rosenthal just tweeted:
Sources: Kendrys Morales to #BlueJays, three years, $33M, pending physical. First reported: @DfineNrmLC.

So now you gotta wonder if the Yankees will move toward an Edwin Encarnacion or try someone else.
Whatever the case, the idea of Morales on the Yankees is NOT happening.
