This is an idea that would get Jays fans most excited.
Trading within a division is something that almost never happens in the MLB, but if the Orioles don't find a way to lock up Jones to a long-term contract, he will be traded.
If Alex Anthopoulos is serious about adding another big bat in the middle of his lineup, then Jones would be at the top of the list of available players. At 26 years old, he's just entering his prime and has steadily improved in each of his four years in the majors.
Acquiring Jones would be massive for the Jays, and if Anthopoulos does make a play on him, he'll likely be re-signed, becoming a big part of the team going forward.
While Jones would be perfect in the four or five hole in Toronto, it would take a significant package—likely including at least Travis Snider and a high-level pitching prospect—to take him out of Baltimore.
Considering the O's would be fielding several offers for Jones, Anthopoulos would really have to blow Dan Duquette away.
