The Blue Jays and Melky Cabrera have begun talking about a contract


Melky Cabrera is a free agent after the World Series ends, but the Jays are at least talking about trying to keep him in the fold. Very tentatively talking:

“Clearly both sides right now can’t seem to get together for various reasons,” Alex Anthopoulos said on The Jeff Blair Show on Sportsnet 590 The FAN Friday. Yet the Blue Jays general manager said the team has had “some conversations” with Cabrera in the hopes of extending his stay in Toronto.

Cabrera had a great year until he broke his finger, batting .301/.351/.458 with 16 homers and 73 RBI over 139 games. Even if he gets a qualifying offer from the Jays, he should have ample interest in his services this offseason.
