Berry was added to the 40-man roster in November after posting a 3.85 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 119/40 K/BB ratio through 152 innings last season with High-A Frederick. Baseball America recently ranked him as the organization's No. 6 prospect. He could become a mid-rotation starter if all goes well.
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Blue Jays players are lobbying Ervin Santana to sign with the club.
In fact, Santana's friends on the Blue Jays recently texted a picture to him which shows them holding a sign saying, "Come to Toronto." Six players on the Toronto's projected 25-man roster are from Santana's native Dominican Republic, including Jose Bautista, Jose Reyes, and Edwin Encarnacion. The Blue Jays and Orioles are believed to be the leading bidders for Santana at the moment, though the Twins have also made him an offer. Some have speculated that the Braves could also be in the mix if Kris Medlen (forearm) needs to miss significant time.
