The Blue Jays are targeting Angels catchers Chris Iannetta or Hank Conger


The Blue Jays once traded for Angels catcher Mike Napoli. Then four days later they got rid of him. Maybe seeing Napoli help two teams to the World Series since then has them trying for a do-over. Here’s Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun:

Yes, the Blue Jays need starting pitching. Yet, that’s not the only area they are searching to improve on for next season. The Jays also are attempting to acquire a catcher from the Los Angeles Angels. Toronto has targeted either Chris Iannetta or Hank Conger, according to those familiar with the Jays’ plans.

I imagine current Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia would be interested to learn this. But it’s also possible that the news would blow right by him and hit the backstop once it came his way.
