Which international free agents would fit Blue Jays’ roster best?

A great deal of the fun during the MLB off-season is seeing big, familiar names linked to the team you support, and dreaming about how they might change that team’s fortunes.

These players have a combination of upside and bust potential that makes them fascinating to watch.
