TORONTO -- The Blue Jays will not make qualifying offers to starting pitcher Josh Johnson or any other free agent, the team announced. Qualifying Johnson would have cost Toronto US$14.1 million and given it draft-pick compensation if the right-hander signed with another club. After going 2-8 with a 6.20 ERA, the risk was that the 29-year-old would accept the qualifying offer and take a huge chunk out of the Jays budget. Now if Johnson signs elsewhere in Major League Baseball, the Jays will not receive any compensation. He was acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Miami Marlins last off-season. Johnson made $13.75 million in his only season in Toronto. Along with Johnson, the Jays will not make qualifying offers to outfielder Rajai Davis and pitchers Ramon Ortiz and Darren Oliver. Oliver, who made 50 appearances in 2013, will retire at the age of 43. Marcel Dionne Jersey .Former NBA forward Morris Peterson has been added to TSNs Toronto Raptors broadcast team.

"We think at six were going to get a real good player that we like, but up until (Friday) when the draft starts well keep inquiring and seeing what it takes to move up and if weve got the assets to make it happen," Benning said Thursday on the eve of the draft. Benning has a major asset to dangle in the form of centre Ryan Kesler. "Were talking to teams, but at the end of the day were going to do what makes sense to us and to try to help Ryan out," Benning said. "If we dont think we can get a fair deal for him, then were going to keep him and hes a Vancouver Canuck. And were happy to have him back because hes a great player." Kesler has reportedly given the Canucks a list of potential teams he would join, with some suggesting that list is growing shorter. Benning says dealing with a smaller pool of potential trade partners is more difficult but "that is what it is." "Were talking to the agent on a daily basis annd were talking to teams and were hoping to figure something out thats hes happy with and were happy with.dddddddddddd" Kesler had 25 goals and 18 assists in 77 games last season. "If were going to go down that path, we want to try to get NHL-calibre players back to help with that," Benning said of losing Keslers offence. Asked about looking for a veteran goalie, Benning said: "Were going to look at all of our options on that." "Weve said before were happy with the progress that Eddie (Lack) made last year. But as free agency comes up, were going to look at options and then if it makes sense for us, well do that." The Canucks also have Jacob Markstrom in goal. Benning said he is not hung up about trades within his own conference. "I dont think that has any bearing on what were trying to do in Vancouver," he said. "We want to try to get some younger players here this next few years going forward. We have (forward) Bo Horvat who we drafted last year and were going to have the sixth pick this year. So were getting some building blocks."
