Report: White Sox And Blue Jays Discussing Gavin Floyd Trade
The Toronto Blue Jays are still pursuing starting pitcher Gavin Floyd, sources have told Fox Sports.
Floyd went 12-13 last season for the White Sox with a 4.37 ERA. The Blue Jays would reportedly like to acquire Floyd to sure-up their starting rotation before opening day.
Chicago and Toronto have built a working relationship with one another over the past several months. The team has completed two trades together since the culmination of the 2011 season. They also were part of a three-team trade which sent Edwin Jackson to St. Louis, and Colby Rasmus to Toronto. The Blue Jays finished last season with an 81-81 record, which put them 10 games out of the Wild Card spot. With each league adding another Wild Card position in 2012, the Blue Jays will try to make a run for the postseason this year.
