The Blue Jays are interested in Jeff Samardzija


Jon Heyman reports that Jeff Samardzija is “on the list” of the Blue Jays.

Of the best things in life . . . 

Anyway, both Samardzija and the White Sox have been disappointing this year, with the Sox sitting in last place, ten games out, and with Samardzija going 5-4 with a 4.56 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 88/20 in 108.2 innings. The kicker, though, is that he leads the AL in hits allowed at 123.

Still, a change of scenery for the guy could do him good. And given that (a) the Sox don’t seem to be going anyplace; and (b)¬†Samardzija is in his walk year, a trade seems like a distinct possibility.
