The Toronto Blue Jays are 2nd in the AL in defensive runs saved since May 24 behind only the Houston Astros. The expected acquisition of Melvin Upton Jr from the San Diego Padres will make that defense even better as Jose Bautista will probably be moved to DH, Edwin Encarnacion to 1B opening RF for Upton. Despite his low on-base percentage, he is on pace to join the 30/30 club. 30 Home Runs and 30 Stolen bases. The fact he's controlled past this year could indicate the Blue Jays are resigning themselves to losing Jose Bautista and/or Michael Saunders to free agency at season's end.
