The Toronto Blue Jays are among the teams to have discussed potential trades involving Washington Nationals relievers Brad Hand and Daniel Hudson, reports MLB Network's Jon Morosi.

Toronto has bolstered its bullpen in recent weeks, acquiring relievers Adam Cimber and Trevor Richards in separate deals. However, the addition of Hand, Hudson, or both would provide a significant upgrade.

Hand, 31, owns a 2.63 ERA with 20 saves this season. He's been terrific for Washington since the beginning of June, allowing five earned runs and 12 hits in 22 2/3 innings.

The Blue Jays were reportedly interested in signing Hand this past offseason before he agreed to a deal with the Nationals.

Hudson, meanwhile, has a 2.37 ERA and a career-best 13.4 strikeouts per nine so far in 2021.

The Blue Jays traded the 34-year-old to the Nationals in 2019.
