In a recent report, it was revealed that Blue Jays GM Ross Atkins will likely remain with the team after the season but will have a new title in the front-office.

President Mark Shapiro has kept his close friend in the GM position since 2016 despite never achieving anything in Toronto. Many insiders and fans ebleieve Atkins has been able to hold onto his position for so long since he is so easily controlled by Shapiro.
Now with this beyond disappointing season, Shapiro will be forced to make a move but it looks like Atkins will not be fired, just switched to a new position in the front-office. Shapiro will likely look for a replacement that will also listen to every word he has to say.
Shapiro, the Blue Jays president, with one year left on his contract and this horrible season to answer for, doesn't have many bullets left to play with here. With two years left on his own deal, Atkins — his close friend and the GM he gave a rousing endorsement to at the end of the playoff mish-mash of a year ago — will likely be shuffled into another front office position with a fancy title and replaced by another general manager that Shapiro will have complete control over.- Simmons

This is discouraging news for most fans that believe the front-office needs to clean house since they have not been able to achieve anything of value during their time there and have made numerous mistakes.
