if the Toronto Blue Jays are going to go through a total rebuild, they may need to find a new manager.

On Friday, manager John Gibbons appeared on MLB Network Radio where he addressed a report from The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal claiming the Blue Jays "seem destined to move on" from him by season's end.

"Sooner or later, it's going to happen. I guarantee you that, " Gibbons replied when asked about this being his last season. "I learn to dismiss those things. It's a reality though. They inherited me here."

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Sunday that Sean Reid-Foley will make his Major League debut on the mound and he will be caught by Danny Jansen. "I don't know what to expect, to be honest with you," said Gibbons of the right-hander's first start. "You never really do — he'll be excited. Sometimes you can get too excited, but [I] didn't know what to expect out of [Ryan] Borucki and look what he's done. Debuts, those can be really good [or] really bad."

The Blue Jays, who came into the season with their sights set on the postseason, have struggled to a 52-62 record. They've since traded J.A.

"I'm not so sure I want to go through one of those things. A total rebuild," he explained. "We'll probably sit down ... before it's all said and done and talk that out."

Earlier this week, Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins refuted the report that Gibbons' job security was in question, going on to say the 56-year-old remains part of the team's plans moving ahead.
