Blue Jays attempted trades for Ian Kinsler, Brett Anderson


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) The Blue Jays attempted to trade for second baseman Ian Kinsler (then with the Rangers) and pitcher Brett Anderson (then with the A's) earlier this offseason before both players were dealt to different teams (the Tigers and Rockies, respectively) in different deals, Sportsnet reports.

The Blue Jays have been quiet this offseason, but they came close to making a few key trades for the second straight offseason before the Kinsler and Anderson deals fell through earlier this winter. The Rangers and Blue Jays had a deal in place involving Kinsler, but the second baseman had a no-trade clause that "scuttled" the deal. Anderson was nearly acquired for reliever Sergio Santos, but injury concerns with Anderson prevented the Blue Jays from pulling the trigger.

The Blue Jays continue to be "very active and very involved" in their search for starting pitching help.

Anderson had an injury-riddled season, putting up a 6.04 ERA in 44 2/3 innings last season. Anderson has been an effective player when healthy, but he's only pitched 79 2/3 innings over the past two seasons.

Brett Anderson deal could come later


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) The Athletics may have cooled on dealing pitcher Brett Anderson for now, according to Yahoo!

There was a sense Anderson could be dealt during the winter meetings, but that no longer appears to be the case. It's still possible Anderson gets dealt this season, but it's looking like it won't happen this week. Anderson struggled through injuries last season, posting a 6.04 ERA in 44 2/3 innings.

by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
