The latest out of the AL East...
- Former Mets GM Omar Minaya was offered a scouting position with the Blue Jays, tweets SI's Jon Heyman. Minaya is weighing other options. Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun first reported Toronto's interest in Minaya, citing the Padres as another suitor. Elliott notes that the Jays already employ three former GMs in Jim Beattie, Ed Lynch, and Chuck LaMar. In October, Minaya interviewed for the Angels' GM job.
- The Jays are "pushing hard for a closer," one GM tells Elliott. Elliott reported a few days ago that the Blue Jays were shocked by the asking prices, however.
- No matter what they say publicly, Yankees people are telling friends to expect an eventual big splash with a pitcher, tweets Danny Knobler of CBS Sports. I don't think that'd shock anyone, but there's not much out there currently.
- The Red Sox weren't surprised Jonathan Papelbon priced himself out of their range, writes WEEI's Alex Speier. The Sox are not looking to make a quick strike in the closer market to replace him.
