The Toronto Blue Jays began retooling their lineup by reaching agreement on a $33-million, three-year contract with Kendrys Morales pending a physical, a move that that essentially parts ways with Edwin Encarnacion and sets up Justin Smoak to see plenty of action at first base.

The deal, as reported by various sources on Friday, comes after a late push to re-sign Encarnacion, a franchise icon, fell short at the GM meetings in Scottsdale, Ariz. Multiple industry sources indicated the Blue Jays’ extended an offer with a deadline to their slugger and when it was rejected, they moved on to their alternatives.

Speaking in general terms Tuesday, general manager Ross Atkins said “offers often times come on and off tables.”

Morales, 33, will replace some of the lost pop but is a DH only, having played only 10 games and 74 innings defensively in 2016, split evenly between first base and the outfield. A switch-hitter, the Cuban is a good contact hitter who puts the ball in play, slashing .263/.327/.468 with 30 homers and 93 RBIs for the Kansas City Royals, but he doesn’t walk much and runs like a Molina.
