DETROIT (AP) - Toronto has acquired All-Star left-hander David Price from the Detroit Tigers, the second major move in less than a week by the Blue Jays as they chase their first postseason appearance since 1993.
After acquiring slugging shortstop Troy Tulowitzki from Colorado earlier in the week, the Blue Jays tried to shore up their rotation by adding the top remaining starting pitcher on the market. Johnny Cueto was traded from Cincinnati to Kansas City, and Cole Hamels went from Philadelphia to Texas.
The Blue Jays sent left-handers Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Jairo Labourt to the Tigers in the deal, which was announced by both teams Thursday. Price can become a free agent after this season.
