White Sox Trade Rumors: Toronto Showing Strong Interest In Jeff Samardzija

The Blue Jays are showing the strongest interest in Chicago White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija of any team, according to Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago.

Toronto is focused on getting a much-needed improvement to their rotation, and they’ve been connected to Samardzija a number of times over the past week. The Blue Jays have shown a desire to win-now after trading for shortstop Troy Tulowitzki last night.

Hayes also reported that the team has become “increasingly willing” to deal Samardzija, who is earning $9.8 million this season and will be a free agent after the year.

That being said, Chicago is content to keep Samardzija if they don't get a good deal in return.
