A proposed three-team trade involving the Cincinnati Reds, Toronto Blue Jays and Los Angeles Angels hit a snag Monday night during the medical review of the players involved, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney.

The deal proposed would have sent Reds slugger Jay Bruce to the Blue Jays, with the Angels acquiring outfielder Michael Saunders from Toronto and the Reds getting a second-tier prospect apiece from the Angels and Blue Jays, sources confirmed earlier Monday.

A source familiar with the trade talks told ESPN's Jerry Crasnick that he thinks Saunders' knee is a concern. Saunders played in just nine games for the Blue Jays this past season, due to left knee problems.

A source told Olney that for now the deal is dead. The proposed trade was first reported Monday by the MLB Network.
