article imageMLB Trade Rumors: Rick Porcello to Toronto Blue Jays?

By Larry Seely     Mar 7, 2014 in Sports
Toronto - Starting pitching has already become an issue with the Toronto Blue Jays. The team entered Spring Training hoping the players they had could develop, but the MLB is all about depth and the front office might need to get some help before opening day.
Rumors from Rant Sport have reported General Manager Alex Anthopoulos might need to make a deal with another club to get a solid starter and suggests a deal with Detroit for Rick Porcello.
The Tigers suddenly have issues of their own with outfielder Andy Dirk hurting his back this week. With a surplus of pitching on the 40 man roster, Detroit has the resources to make a trade and could use Porcello to land some help.
A proposed trade would have the 25-year-old headed north of the border and young outfielder Moises Sierra and possibly another young prospect or two head to the Motor City.
Toronto failed to add any talent to the mound during free agency and despite reports the Jays could have interest in Ervin Santana, Porcello fits better into their budget and is six years younger, possibly giving the Blue Jays a solid pitcher to build their staff around, but also landing the Tigers a player that could keep them in the race for best record in the American league this season and possibly the top team in the MLB in 2014.
