SAN DIEGO – The Blue Jays arent limiting their pursuit of a starting second baseman to the North American market. Multiple sources have confirmed to TSN.ca and ESPN Deportes that the club has interest in free agent Japanese shortstop Takashi Toritani. As of Wednesday afternoon, no formal offer had been made and according to one source, term and dollar figures hadnt been exchanged. Its believed Toritani, a client of super agent Scott Boras, will seek a multi-year deal. Toritani, 33, is an 11-year veteran of the Japan Central League, having played his entire career with the Hanshin Tigers. A left-handed slap hitter, Toritani has posted back-to-back seasons with on-base percentages of better than .400 and hasnt posted an OBP lower than .350 since 2005, when he was 24. Toritani has a career 11.6-percent walk rate and has amassed more than 1,600 hits. Considered a sure-handed defender, a move to the other side of the infield wouldnt be an issue. The Blue Jays have a number of internal options at second base but none is appealing. Maicer Izturis is returning from a season lost to injury. It was mid-April in Baltimore when Izturis tore the lateral collateral ligament in his left knee after slipping on the dugout steps. Entering the final year of his three-year, $9 million contract, Izturis has value as a utility infielder but the Jays wont know the degree to which hes recovered until they see him play in spring training. Over his career, Izturis has proven more valuable as a utility player anyway. Ryan Goins provides elite defence but his glove doesnt hide his career .531 OPS in more than 300 big league plate appearances. Steve Tolleson is out of options in 2015 and hes best served in a platoon because he struggles badly against right-handed pitching. The wild card is 23-year-old Devon Travis, who the Jays acquired from Detroit for Anthony Gose last month. He was ranked as the Tigers top prospect at the time of the deal and has high offensive upside. The problem is Travis hasnt played higher than Double-A and so its unsafe to assume hell be ready to break camp. Cheap Dave Dravecky Jersey . 1.

BALTIMORE -- A reversed call got the uprising started. Then came a walk after the Detroit Tigers were down to their last strike. That forced Tommy Hunter to go up against Miguel Cabrera, perhaps the last person a struggling closer wants to face with the outcome hanging in the balance. Cabrera hit a hanging curveball over the centre-field wall for a three-run homer, and the Tigers rallied past the Baltimore Orioles 4-1 on Tuesday night. After being held scoreless on three hits over the first eight innings, the Tigers improved to 1-12 when trailing after eight innings. "You never know in baseball," Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. "When the top of our order swings the bat, we can score some runs quickly." Hunter held a 1-0 lead before giving up a leadoff single to Alex Avila. Pinch-runner Rajai Davis was called out trying to steal, but Ausmus challenged the call and after looking at the replay, umpires called Davis safe at second. "The instant replay was probably the turning point, I guess," Ausmus said. Hunter (1-1) got two straight outs before working the count on Torii Hunter to 1-2. The at-bat ended in a walk. "You cant let arguably one of the best hitters in the game come to the plate," Tommy Hunter said. "Youve got to throw a strike right there and I missed." Two pitches later, Cabrera connected. "Its a chance that we win or were going to lose," Cabrera said. "You dont have to think too much of it. Youve got to go out there and try and see what happens." Victor Martinez followed Cabreras sixth home run with a shot to right that landed on Eutaw Street beyond the scoreboard in right field. Justin Miller (1-1) pitched one inning to earn his first big league win and Joe Nathan got three outs for his ninth save. Nathan has seven saves and a 0.00 ERA in his last eight outings. Adam Jones hit a first-inning homer for the Orioles, who have dropped three in a row following a five-game winning streak. Jones has five home runs, four in the last seven games. Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jimenez gave up three hits, walked two and struck out seven in seven innings. After going 0-4 with a 6.59 ERA in April, the right-hander is 2-0 with a 0.46 ERA in May. Jimenez, who signed a four-year, $50 milllion contract as a free agent in February, permitted only one runner past first base.dddddddddddd All three hits against him were singles, and on each occasion the runner was erased trying to steal. Darren ODay worked a perfect eighth, but Hunter couldnt preserve the lead. He left the mound to jeers from fans who minutes earlier were standing in anticipation of the final out. Hunter has 11 saves, but his job as closer could be in jeopardy. "Im not going to get in to handicapping, this means that and that means this," manager Buck Showalter said. "Well constantly see what gives us the best option to pitch nine innings, and be competitive and continue to be in first place. And thats what well do." Said Hunter: "Its my job today. Well see." Detroit starter Drew Smyly allowed five hits over six innings and matched a season high with seven strikeouts. In his previous three outings against the Orioles, all in relief, Smyly gave up two hits and struck out eight in eight shutout innings. Detroit trailed 1-0 in the seventh when Hunter led off with a single and Cabrera walked. After Jimenez bounced a curveball, rookie catcher Caleb Joseph quickly found the handle on the loose ball and threw out Hunter trying to take third. Martinez bounced into a 4-6-3 double play. Baltimore catchers were 4 for 29 in throwing out would-be stealers before Joseph went 3 for 4. The rookie also got his first major league hit, a fourth-inning single. NOTES: RHP Kevin Gausman will be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to start Wednesday for the Orioles. The move was designed to give starters Wei-Yin Chen and Miguel Gonzalez an extra day of rest. Gonzalez will be available in the bullpen for Wednesdays game. Baltimore also announced it optioned RHP Preston Guilmet to Norfolk after the game. Guilmet made two scoreless appearances totalling 1 2/3 innings after being recalled before Mondays game. ... Ausmus said RHP Anibal Sanchez (finger laceration) will come off the DL to start Sunday against Boston. ... Detroits Rick Porcello, who left Mondays game with a tightness in his side, remains on schedule for his next start Saturday. ... Showalter said starter Chris Tillman had some groin soreness after his start Sunday, but the right-hander appears to have recovered. ' ' '
