With the Toronto Blue Jays appearing to be out on Masahiro Tanaka, the team is willing to forfeit its second-round draft pick for one of the remaining free agent starting pitchers, reports Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star. That's good news for Ubaldo Jimenez and Ervin Santana. Both players are still looking for a new team after turning down qualifying offers from their 2013 clubs. The Blue Jays have been linked to both pitchers and a willingness to give up a draft pick shows how serious the team is. Toronto is looking to bolster a rotation that finished with a 4.81 ERA in 2013, the second-worst mark in all of the major leagues. Part of that was due to injury -- Mark Buehrle and R.A. Dickey were the only two to make over 18 starts as Josh Johnson, J.A. Happ and Brandon Morrow all dealt with various maladies.
