Blue Jays decline mutual option on OF Jose Bautista

TORONTO (AP) The Toronto Blue Jays will decline their mutual option on outfielder Jose Bautista, making the six-time All-Star a free agent.

General manager Ross Atkins announced the decision Tuesday in a season-ending news conference. Atkins said Bautista was made aware of the team's plans "a couple of weeks ago."

"Based on the construction of our roster, we feel it's unlikely that he's a part of the solution moving forward," Atkins said.
