June was a tough month for the Toronto Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays finished the month 13-14 and had to endure the loss of three fifths of their starting rotation. Brendan Morrow and Drew Hutchison found themselves on the disabled list, while Kyle Drabek was shut down for the year after he underwent Tommy John surgery. The Jays also narrowly survived a scare involving Henderson Alvarez, who left a game early but would make his next scheduled start.
As the MLB trade deadline approaches, whether or not Toronto will make a trade will be a hotly debated topic.
General manager Alex Anthopolous has not been afraid to make deals in the past when he thinks it will benefit the organization. He shipped Vernon Wells to the Angels for Mike Napoli, who was later traded for Frank Francisco. He also acquired Colby Rasmus from the St. Louis Cardinals and Kelly Johnson from the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Here are five potential pitchers Anthopolous could pursue to try and fill the gaps in the starting rotation left by a disastrous month of June.
