The Toronto Blue Jays are open to trading players who will be free agents at the end of the season, sources told's Mark Feinsand.

Toronto is 41-50 and has a 1.7% chance of making the postseason, according to FanGraphs.

Yusei Kikuchi, Yimi García, Justin Turner, Kevin Kiermaier, and Trevor Richards are some of the notable Blue Jays who are impending free agents.

Kikuchi struck out a career-high 13 in Tuesday's start against the San Francisco Giants and is expected to be one of the most impactful starting pitchers available ahead of the July 30 trade deadline.

Although they're open to moving rental players, the Blue Jays are not expected to trade players with control beyond this season, sources told Feinsand.

That group includes Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette, who are both currently expected to reach free agency at the conclusion of the 2025 campaign.
