Let's have another open thread to discuss trade rumors.
This morning Jon Morosi gave us this little Blue Jays rumor:
#BlueJays among teams with interest in Mat Latos. He's 3-2 with 2.72 ERA and .556 opp OPS in 6 starts since coming off DL.— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 22, 2015
Yesterday the rumor was that the Jays were trying to get Mike Fiers from the Brewers. I kind of like the idea of Fiers....he gets a strikeout an inning, doesn't walk too many and would be under team control for a few years.
Course neither would cost as much in prospects as David Price, Cole Hamels, Johnny Cueto or Jeff Samardzija.
I haven't heard any rumors of the Jays looking for an outfielder. I figured they might be looking for someone to take the left field job. Gibby seems to have lost his love for Chris Colabello. He's only started 12 of the team's last 21 games, and hasn't hit much in those games, .237/.318/.500, but that's still more production than he's gotten from Ezequiel Carrera over the same span, .088/.139/.088. I wonder how much longer they will wait before calling up Pompey?
