The Blue Jays are attempting to deal their former No. 1 pick to the Washington Nationals for first baseman Nick Johnson.
Jim Bowden, new general manager of the Nationals, and Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi have discussed a Rios-for-Johnson swap.
The Jays are also looking at Tony Clark
THE BLUE JAYS will be looking at New York Yankees free agent first baseman Tony Clark as a replacement for Carlos Delgado. Clark hit 16 home runs for the Yankees and hit .221.
The Blue Jays' game plan was to sign Minnsota Twins free agent Corey Koskie of Anola, Man., and have him play third and move Eric Hinske to first base. It now appears that Koskie will stay with the Minnesota Twins or land with the Detroit Tigers or Seatttle Mariners. He won't be coming to Toronto
