Is he a legitimate prospect or is this just a publicity stunt?  Either way, classy move by the Blue Jays?

I wouldn't call it a publicity stunt, as, outside those deep in the baseball world, it's not going to really get noticed. It is more of an goodwill type move than one with made without an intent on officially bringing him into the fold.

Gotcha, thanks.  Like I said, I think it's a classy move and am glad they did it.

Trade rumours heating up.  Yankees interested in The Stro Show, that is Marcus Stroman.
Aaron Sanchezs name pops up, too.

Quote
According to Ken Davidoff of The New York Post, the New York Yankees have spoken with the Blue Jays about starting pitcher Marcus Stroman.

Finally, Davidoff hints that Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez is very available, though he draws no links between Sanchez and the Yankees at this point.

Hes the one pitcher I don't want to trade, he understands he plays not just for Toronto but Canada and that means something to him.  Who else can pitch???? Not like we have a plethora of arms waiting in the wings.
