The Chicago White Sox have traded 28-year-old closer Sergio Santos to the Toronto Blue Jays, getting pitching prospect Nestor Molina in return, tweets Jim Bowden of ESPN.

In 2011, Santos took over closer duties for the White Sox and had 30 saves in 50 games finished with a 3.55 ERA.

The Blue Jays will have six more years of team control on Santos, tweets Ken Rosenthal.

This should end the Blue Jays’ search for a closer. They had been linked to some of the many closers on the free agent and trade market, including Huston Street and Andrew Bailey.

The White Sox are very high on Molina, tweets Buster Olney of ESPN.com.
