Blue Jays Acquire Bush

The Blue Jays have acquired former number one draft pick Matt Bush from the Padres in exchange for a player to be named later. Bush was designated for assignment after an off the field incident at a local high school. Bush has yet to be charged with anything, but Bush's checkered past has given the Padres no options but to deal him. Bush is still recovering from Tommy John Surgery, but has the potential to be a solid pitcher.

The Padres will likely keep him in extended Spring Training before shipping off to the minors.
