Blue Jays acquire Dana Eveland from A's

Dana Eveland.jpgAccording to Jon Paul Morosi of, the Blue Jays have acquired left-hander Dana Eveland from the Athletics in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Eveland was designated for assignment earlier this week.

The 26-year-old southpaw was touched up to the tune of a 7.16 ERA in 13 games (nine starts) with the Athletics last season, but was 9-9 with a 4.34 ERA in 2008, including a 3.49 ERA over his first 19 starts. A groundball pitcher, Eveland doesn’t throw very hard — usually under 90 MPH — and hasn’t yet shown the proper command (4.6 BB/9) to suggest he can be a reliable starter in the major leagues.

Ultimately, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for the Jays, but I suppose you can never have enough arms.

    It’s not the screwiest thing the franchise has ever done though. What about when they changed their uni’s for the 2003 season…and then switched them again in 2004?! Roy Halladay won a Cy Young in those digs, they should bring em back and hope the luck returns!

    Lol, I would not have taken it there if I were you, but this is a rather good post. Maybe you could allow me to write a guest post to share my feelings about the opposite side of this argument.

    Blue Jays seem to be doing lots of strange things this offseason!
