It looks as though the Blue Jays are in talks with the Oakland A’s about bringing All-Star starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez to Toronto, according to Chronicle staff writer Susan Slusser.
“I ran a list of the Blue Jays’ top-rated prospects by one source – Oakland wants at least two of a team’s top four prospects for Gonzalez, plus some middle-level minor-leaguers” Slusser said in her article.
“I think the other 11 teams I’m told are in the Gonzalez hunt will be nervous about Toronto’s interest. The Blue Jays have the wherewithal to make something happen.”
The Blue Jays are frequently trade partners with the A’s and enjoy a considerable amount of depth in the minor leagues.
