With the 2015 MLB trade deadline just a day away, the Toronto Blue Jays have won the David Price sweepstakes.
Perhaps no bigger name on the market was being shopped than Detroit Tigers ace David Price. Despite the Tigers only remaining a few games out of a playoff spot, general manager Dave Dombrowski decided it was time to sell.
This led to Price being shipped to the AL East dwelling Toronto Blue Jays.
Just days after acquiring Troy Tulowitzki, the Yankees rivals have now picked up a stud starting pitcher. In exchange, they’ve given up three left-handed pitchers in Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Jairo Labourt.

This, coupling with the news that Michael Pineda and possibly Ivan Nova heading to the DL, has to have Brian Cashman burning up the phones a bit more to maintain their cushy division lead.[su_button url=”https://elitesportsny.com/2015/07/30/new-york-yankees-use-c-c-in-texas-acquire-dustin-ackley/” target=”blank” background=”#000080″ size=”10″ wide=”yes” radius=”0″]NEXT: Yanks Settle On C.C.
