Blue Jays Reportedly After Carlos Quentin

Carlos Quentin is second on the San Diego Padres with five home runs. He has 27 at-bats this year. That says a lot of things about Quentin and the Padres. But for now, let's just focus on Quentin. He is in the middle of an insane hot streak, hitting .481/.548/1.185 in his first eight games of the season. He's showing off, basically. And a lot of teams are noticing.

The Toronto Blue Jays are reportedly one of those teams. From Jon Heyman:

The Toronto Blue Jays are expected to be among the teams targeting Padres hot-hitting outfielder Carlos Quentin if, as expected, he's made available. The Blue Jays are said to have long liked Quentin. They had talks this winter about several then-White Sox players, including pitcher Gavin Floyd, and wound up making a trade for closer Sergio Santos.

Quentin could be the best hitter on the market this trading season, and his value is only enhanced by an unreal start that includes a 1.734 OPS after a week since returning from offseason knee surgery.

The Jays have used Eric Thames and Rajai Davis in left field this year, so you can see where the fit would be.
