The Twins are interested in Blue Jays reliever Jason Frasor, tweets Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun. Elliott qualifies the rumor by noting that the Blue Jays had two scouts at a Twins game, "but then they now have a ton of scouts to go to games."
The Twins interest in Frasor stems from Joe Nathan's likely need for season-ending Tommy John surgery. Frasor could step in and handle any late-inning role. The 32-year-old posted a 2.50 ERA, 8.7 K/9, and 2.5 BB/9 in 57.6 innings for the Blue Jays last year. He's earning $2.65MM in his last season before free agency. The Cubs are also known to be interested; the Jays might find it's a seller's market for quality relievers.
