Joe Blanton Drawing Interest From Blue Jays?

Jon Morosi reported today via twitter:

#Blue Jays are interested in pitching, Joe Blanton is available in the right deal.  #Phillies could benefit from salary relief.

Analysis: Blanton has been an inning eater throughout his career besides the injury shortened 2011 season.  The 32-year old hurler would definitely add a reliable starting pitcher to the back end of the rotation and insurance for Dustin McGowan if his comeback attempt falls short.

In 198 career starts Blanton has a 4.32 ERA, 4.19 FIP, 5.9 K/9, 2.5 BB/9, 1.02 HR/9 and a 44% ground ball rate.
