3. Toronto Blue Jays
David Price could join other former Los Angeles Dodgers pitchers Ross Stripling and Hyun-Jin Ryu in Toronto.
The Toronto Blue Jays are ready to contend for the World Series and are making moves under that assumption. Toronto already has a really solid young core, and added to that this offseason by signing George Springer and Kirby Yates.
The starting pitching staff is easily the weak point of the team, and the Blue Jays should take any starting pitching help they can get. This Price situation is perfect for Toronto, and it would be silly for them to pass up on the opportunity.
Price is not going to completely turn the tide of the Jays’ pitching staff, but he is a veteran innings-eater who has been there and done that in the MLB Playoffs before. Adding Price to the rotation suddenly gives the Blue Jays a solid five-man outlook.
A staff of Hyun-Jin Ryu, David Price, Nate Pearson, Robbie Ray and Ross Stripling is not bad whatsoever. Ryu, Price, Ray and Stripling all have All-Star ceilings that they have achieved in the past and Pearson is one of the best pitching prospects in baseball.
The Jays already have two former Dodgers, so why not make it a third and trade for the player that they traded for back in 2015?
