Carreno I also think could stick at AAA too. He might've been awful last year, but he was awful as a starter. He's a much better reliever and could probably handle Buffalo as a 7th-8th inning arm.

also Fangraphs continued its positional power rankings today with the OF spots.

Left Field
Jays Rank: 19th (Cabrera, Davis, Bonifacio)

Center Field

Jays Rank: (Rasmus, Gose, Bonifacio, Davis)

Right Field

Jays Rank: 3rd (Bautista, Davis, Sierra)

And to continue the trend of noting the Marlins ranks for comedy:

LF: 30th
CF: 26th
RF: 1st (all on Stanton)

so with all 8 non-pitcher fielding positions ranked, Miami only stayed out of the bottom 5/6 once, all on the back of the only significantly noteworthy talent they still have on the ML roster. Ouch.
You didn't list the rank for 'center', but it might be a good thing you didn't. Only one spot ahead of Miami.

Even with the loss of Snider, Marisnik, and Mastroianni(dfa'd), the outfield is still a position of strength for us.
