As the Toronto Blue Jays look to add a left-handed bullpen arm this winter, they have reportedly been eyeing a former division rival.
Injuries limited the 28-year-old to just eight appearances for Boston in 2017, but he has held opposing lefties to a .255 average across 266 major league games dating back to 2012. Ross owns a career 3.92 ERA.
After landing on the disabled list midseason with elbow inflammation, Ross underwent back surgery in late August while finishing up a one-year contract worth $1.825 million. He is expected to be ready for Opening Day.
The Blue Jays' bullpen combined for a 4.21 ERA last season, which ranked 15th in baseball.
