Cardinals Have Checked In On Blue Jays Relievers

Earlier today we heard that the Cardinals are aggressively looking for a starting pitcher, but that doesn't mean they aren't trying to add bullpen help either. Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports reports that St. Louis has checked in on the availability of several Blue Jays relievers, according to sources (on Twitter).

Toronto has a cache of right-handed relievers available, namely Jason Frasor, Jon Rauch, Octavio Dotel, and Frank Francisco. The first three have affordable club options for next season, $3.75MM or less. Morosi notes that Frasor has never pitched in the NL, so there's an element of surprise there. The Cardinals are currently without setup man Eduardo Sanchez, and their 4.04 bullpen ERA is the third highest in the National League. The Jays and Cards don't get together for trades very often as our Transaction Tracker shows, but both clubs have relatively new GMs.
