Janssen Injury Could Result In Trade

News comes today that Blue Jays pitcher Casey Janssen will miss the season with a torn labrum.  He was a bullpen ace last year, and was expected to move back to the rotation this year.

Robert MacLeod's above-linked article quotes Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi saying he might explore the trade market in the wake of the injury.  If we take J.P. at his word this time, which starters could be possibilities?

The Brewers have the most obvious surplus with Chris Capuano, Dave Bush, and Claudio Vargas.  Bush came up a Blue Jay before being traded to Milwaukee with Gabe Gross for Lyle Overbay.  The Cubs could spare Jason Marquis, for what it's worth.  How about free agents?  Kyle Lohse called the AL "arena baseball," leaving Jeff Weaver as the uninspiring option.  And I suppose a third stint with David Wells is possible.
