Report: Blue Jays casting a wide net for starting pitching

BY foxsports • July 28, 2015

There are plenty of starting pitching options on the trade market this July and the Toronto Blue Jays are interested in just about every one of them.

According to Jon Heyman, the Jays have Jeff Samardzija, Mike Leake, Mat Latos, Dan Haren, Carlos Carrasco, Mike Fiers, Andrew Cashner, Tyson Ross "and perhaps several others."

Toronto has been linked to starting pitching for a couple seasons, but now they seem poised to make a move.

Heading into Monday's games, they boasted one of the most prolific offenses in the American League, ranking first in runs, slugging and on base+slugging. They ranked 12th in the junior circuit in ERA with a 4.07.

The Jays were dealt a blow before the season when Marcus Stroman went down for the season with a knee injury.
