The Toronto Blue Jays were in first place in the AL East for most of the season, but the Baltimore Orioles have since passed them in the standings. If the Jays want to make the postseason, making a move or two at the trade deadline may be a wise decision.
The Blue Jays are interested in second base and third base upgrades, and the Padres are open to dealing anyone not named Andrew Cashner. Headley isn't the greatest option on the trade market, but he would be a solid addition for the right price.
The Jays are looking for better production at second base, but don't include Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks among potential fits. Toronto is looking for an offensive upgade, but also wants a decent defensive second baseman. Weeks doesn't bring much with the glove.
Aaron Hill certainly isn't a gold glove second baseman, but he brings a lot of offense. He also played with the Blue Jays before, but that may not be a factor at all. The Diamondbacks are very much open for business, so a Hill-to-Toronto trade wouldn't be a big surprise.
The most versatile player that Jays have been connected to is Martin Prado. He can play in the corner outfield, as well as second and third base. He doesn't bring a lot of power offensively, but his versatility and contact skills make him a valuable asset.
Even though Francoeur is a member of the Padres' organization at Triple-A, he has a rolling opt-out in his contract that allows him to leave at any time if a Major-League opportunity arises. The Blue Jays appear to have interest in the veteran outfielder.
