The Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles are discussing a trade that would send Dan Duquette north of the border.
The Orioles and Blue Jays have discussed a compensation package that would allow Duquette, currently Baltimore's executive vice president of baseball operations, to become Toronto's president and chief executive officer, according to a report.
The same report said the two sides are not close to a deal, but they are talking.
Toronto's reported interest in Duquette dates back at least a couple of months. He was one of several high-profile team executives to catch the attention of someone in the Blue Jays organization as a possible replacement for Paul Beeston.
