Jays Looking to Florida For a Bat

MLB.com is reporting that the Blue Jays are amongst potential suitors for 1b Mike Jacobs:

“In his third full season with the Marlins, Jacobs will turn 28 on Thursday. In 2008, Jacobs belted a career-high 32 home runs, while driving in 93 runs. Eligible for salary arbitration for the first time, Jacobs projects to make roughly $3.5 million in 2009. In his 421 career games, Jacobs has 80 home runs. He has been bothered by some nagging injuries since joining the Marlins, including a sprained ankle and broken bone in his right hand. Jacobs played a career-high 141 games for Florida this past season, batting .247”

The price is apparently bullpen help by the way.

I plead guilty, I don’t know the first thing about this guy….Eye???
