Could Trevor Bauer be heading to the American League East?

That depends, to a degree, on how a phone call Thursday went.

The star free-agent pitcher, who actively uses social media, was honest Thursday evening revealing he had a phone call with the Toronto Blue Jays lined up.

“I’ve got a call with the Blue Jays,” Bauer said. “I’m going to check in with them and talk to their pitching coach (Pete Walker) and high performance coach (Angus Mugford) and see what they have to offer,”

The Blue Jays long have been named as potential big spenders this offseason, and thus the likes of players such as Bauer and D.J. LeMahieu have been linked to them often.

Bauer, 29, reportedly is seeking a monster deal that will put him in the Gerrit Cole territory of average annual salary. He’s coming off a Cy Young-winning season with the Cincinnati Reds in which he posted an impressive 1.73 ERA with a 5-4 record.
