BLUE JAYS DEADLINE FIXES: STARTING PITCHING ON THE CHEAP
BLUE JAYS DEADLINE FIXES TAKES A LOOK AT STARTING PITCHERS WHO COULD BE AVAILABLE AT A KNOCK DOWN PRICE THAT CAN HELP TORONTO MAKE THAT PUSH BACK TO THE POST-SEASON.

They aren’t going to put up David Price numbers, but might be able to match what Johnny Cueto did for the Royals at a fraction of the price.
Given that the Blue Jays seem committed to dragging Aaron Sanchez kicking and screaming back to the bullpen while Marco Estrada has a small injury concern and Marcus Stroman has been showing too much to batters, some more starting pitching help would be appreciated.
