TORONTO - Get ready to get bummed out.

There’s a possibility — a good one, in fact — that no significant pitching additions will be coming the Blue Jays’ way.

In an hour-long conversation with the local chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America on Wednesday afternoon, Alex Anthopoulos set the bar pretty low when he talked about his search for help to the starting rotation.

To begin with, if help arrives at all, it will likely be in the form of one starter, not two.

If the Blue Jays general manager can negotiate a trade — the free-agent route is weak and overpriced — it will not be a Clayton Kershaw, a Zack Greinke or a David Price. It won’t be a top of the rotation guy.
