Toronto Blue Jays president Mark Shapiro believes his team's roster will improve this offseason.
The Blue Jays haven't done much this winter outside of re-signing lefty Robbie Ray, despite being connected to almost every marquee free agent. Shapiro acknowledged the club's plan is to get better by adding four "very good" players or two "elite" ones, according to Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun.
"I'm 100% confident we will get better," Shapiro said Friday.
Shapiro said he's participated in recruitment video calls and represented ownership in cases where the Blue Jays talked about long-term contracts with players, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.
The 53-year-old executive also reassured that Toronto's stance on spending during the offseason hasn't changed since the 2020 campaign ended.
"There is uncertainty in the budget but not as it pertains to major-league payroll," Shapiro said, according to Longley.
