MLB: Chicago White Sox at Minnesota Twins Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

After watching the Yankees and Red Sox swing deadline deals yesterday, Jays fans have been anxiously watching the front office today. The Blue Jays badly needed pitching, and they got it:

The return is pretty steep:

Berrios is a very good 27 year-old pitcher from Puerto Rico. He has a 3.48 ERA this year, and is under control through 2022, so he’ll be a pivotal part of the Jays rotation next year.

SO far this season, he’s pitched 121.2 innings over 20 starts, with a 3.57 FIP and has been worth 2.3 WAR.
