Major League Baseball's non-waiver trade deadline is on Tuesday and so far Toronto Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthoupoulos has taken the relatively cautious approach.
In trading for starter J.A. Happ and two other hurlers over a week ago in a 10-player swap with the Houston Astros, Anthopoulos gave up two expendable veterans in Ben Francisco and Francisco Cordero along with four lower-tier minor leaguers plus a player to be named later.
With time running out before the league-mandated trade deadline, Anthopoulos will now have to be much more aggressive if he wants to try and add another quality arm that could help the Blue Jays make a serious run for the playoffs.
Chances are he won't.
