2) Santiago Espinal has no clear role on this Blue Jays team
Santiago Espinal has spent each of the last four seasons as a valuable contributor for the Blue Jays. He can play three infield positions well, and has a respectable .757 OPS against left-handed pitching. With the Blue Jays signing Isiah Kiner-Falefa this offseason, it's hard to see a clear role for Espinal.
Right now, Toronto has Davis Schneider, Cavan Biggio, and Kiner-Falefa as other infield options on their active roster, and that's not even including guys like Orelvis Martinez and Addison Barger who are close to MLB-ready.
Espinal being right-handed offers little versatility. That's something that can go in Cavan Biggio's favor, as he's the lone left-handed hitting infielder Toronto has to offer.
While the Jays don't have much of a need for Espinal, he does provide value as a versatile infielder who can play three different positions at a high level and hit left-handed pitching well. Espinal having two additional years of control makes him just that much more valuable for other teams around the league.
