Blue Jays close to acquiring Brandon Morrow

The Blue Jays and Mariners have worked hard to revamp their rosters, making another move early this morning for a former top prospect.

The Mariners have agreed to send starting pitcher Brandon Morrow to the Blue Jays in exchange for pitcher Brandon League, another reliever, and a prospect to be named later.

Morrow's ERA in 197 2/3 career innings sits at 3.96, and he has averaged more than a strikeout per inning. Putting him in a situation where he can know his role is key to the young pitchers development.
