Analysis: A day after Bautista said he and his agent had told Toronto two weeks ago what kind of agreement he wanted, Atkins said "it doesn't need to be public and it won't be from our end." Bautista is earning $14 million this year after the Blue Jays exercised the 2016 option in the outfielder's current deal, and he can become a free agent after the World Series. The 35-year-old had 40 homers and 114 RBIs last season.
