Blue Jays Interested In Matt Guerrier

The Blue Jays are showing interest in reliever Matt Guerrier, a source tells Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (via Twitter).  The right-hander was not offered arbitration by Minnesota and therefore will not cost a top draft pick.  Had he received an arbitration offer from the Twins, he would have been a Type A free agent.

Guerrier posted a 3.17 ERA in 2010 with 5.3 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9 in 74 appearances.  The 32-year-old earned $3.15MM this season and our own Ben Nicholson-Smith doesn't see him making more than $4-5MM in 2011.

Earlier this week we learned that Toronto is also reportedly interested in another reliever familiar to the Twins organization, Jesse Crain
