The Toronto Blue Jays are carrying three catchers on their roster, and they’re interested in trading one, most likely J.P. Arencibia, for starting pitching, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. While the Toronto Blue Jays are open to trading any of their three catchers, there is, well, a catch. The catch, according to Rosenthal, is that none of the three Blue Jays catchers, Arencibia, Travis D’Arnaud and John Buck, are going to come cheap in a trade. As evidence of this, Toronto has discussed Arencibia with the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Mets. The Blue Jays were seeking right-hander Wade Davis from the Rays and Mets left-hander Jon Niese. Rosenthal confirms that Toronto would like to find more starting pitching even after acquiring Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle from the Miami Marlins. However, he also says the team “seems more inclined to add depth than find an upgrade” over fifth starter J.A. Happ. Follow @mlbinjurynews !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);;js.src="";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?

The Jays non-tendered Bobby Wilson on Friday night, leaving J.P. Arencibia, John Buck and Travis D’Arnaud as the remaining catchers on their 40-man roster. Arencibia...

Q&A: Alan Ashby, Catchng the Best of an Era

The list of pitchers Alan Ashby caught in 17 big-league seasons from 1973 to 1989 is an impressive one.
