Here’s one that came out of nowhere.
Storen is coming off of a disastrous year. Per ESPN Stats, Storen’s ERA pre-Paps signing was 1.64. Afterwards, it ballooned to a ghastly 7.56. Frustration in losing his closing gig caused Storen to break his thumb in an unfortunate locker accident.
Revere played moderately well for Toronto, but ultimately suffered from too many outfielders in the organization to prove too valuable. Benny Fresh looks to solve a problem for the Nationals in finding a replacement player for the aging Jayson Werth.
Storen might get a go-to closer’s position again, since this was a weakness on the Blue Jays’ roster.
