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."

Richard Griffin: Relentless Red Sox too much for Blue Jays

  Richard Griffin: Relentless Red Sox too much for Blue Jays The Red Sox were playing the middle of a three-game series against the Blue Jays in the same country but in a different league. The Jays as currently constructed of injuries, warts, a struggling bullpen, depth-chart starters and have no chance of competing on a level field as exhibited Wednesday in a coldly dominant 10-5 shellacking by the Beantowners at Rogers Centre. The Jays are now 3-12 vs. the Red Sox this year, including a 2-6 mark at home. The Jays are 9-25 against the Sox over the past two seasons. Boston posted its 81stwin of the year and are on pace for 114 victories.

John Gibbons ' time with the Toronto Blue Jays may be at an end after this season, but the Gibbons , meanwhile, said he may not want to be. " I ' m not so sure I want to go through one of A total rebuild ," Gibbons said. "We'll probably sit down before it's all said and done and talk that out."

John Gibbons was on SiriusXM MLB radio this morning and talked about the rumors that he will soon be gone from the Blue Jays manager post. I ’ m not sure I have the patience to deal with a total rebuild too, but I guess I don’t get a choice. I ’ m of two minds. I think Gibby can be great with young

"If my days are finished here, it's been a wonderful ride ... maybe they would benefit from getting a new fresh face that can grow with the young players," he added.

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. Happ, Roberto Osuna, and John Axford, and appear to be moving in the direction of a rebuild, something Gibbons doesn't appear to be interested in sticking around for.

"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.
