Blue Jays acquired C John Buck from the Marlins in a 12-player trade.

Buck is hardly a desirable option at this point, but the Blue Jays accepted him in order to get the deal done. The 32-year-old batted .192/.297/.347 with 12 home runs, 41 RBI and a .644 OPS in 106 this season and probably won't even be a starting player in Toronto. Even if the Blue Jays trade J.P. Arencibia, top prospect Travis d'Arnaud could get the bulk of the starts behind the plate next season. Buck is owed $6 million in 2013 and can become a free agent next offseason.
