The Denver Post is reporting today that the Blue Jays are interested in Jeremy Guthrie. There is word that the Rockies are “agressively trying to trade him” according to the Troy Renck article The Blue Jays are hard up for a starter after losing three to the DL in the past week.
Word is that the team has been looking to trade Guthrie since his “odd behavior” of cap-tipping during the A’s series. He tipped his cap to the crowd on two different occasions, one after giving up six runs.
Espn and Fox Sports reported that Double-A first baseman Mike McDade is a possible player in the trade that would see the Jay’s take on most of Guthrie’s contract. McDade, a 23 year old, 6’1″ 250 lb first baseman is a power hitting player with 11 home runs, 12 doubles and a .304 average.
