It’s not clear how Happ fits into the Blue Jays’ plans, as they have five established starters in the rotation and aren’t exactly hurting for bullpen arms either, but the $3.7 million salary seemingly makes it unlikely that they’d stash him at Triple-A. Acquired from the Astros at midseason, he was arbitration eligible for the second time after making $2.35 million last season.
Bonifacio came over from the Marlins as part of the blockbuster deal for Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, and Mark Buehrle. He played all over defensively in Miami, but figures to the Blue Jays’ primary second baseman this season. His offense has been inconsistent and Bonifacio was hurt for much of 2012, but he has tremendous speed and has gotten on base at a .345 clip during the past three years.
