The Detroit Tigers recently opened up definitively to selling their impending free agents, and the Toronto Blue Jays made use of that. The teams swapped pitchers, as the Blue Jays received David Price for three pitching prospects. The move provides the Blue Jays a much-needed starting pitching ace, as their offense is best in the MLB in terms of runs scored.

Toronto has not made the playoffs since they won the World Series in 1993, making this year seem more urgent than ever before. They recently upgraded at shortstop by trading for Troy Tulowitzki. Just a few games out of the Wild Card and not too far out of the AL East division race, the Blue Jays look poised to make a legitimate postseason run. David Price will presumably start his first game for his new team on Sunday.
