George Springer is continuing to draw interest from the Blue Jays, per Jon Heyman of MLB Network. He noted that the Jays "have checked in on Realmuto but seem more focused now on George Springer, as CF is their greater need." (Jon Heyman on Twitter)
The Mets have long been rumored to be the favorites to land Springer and were "engaging" in talks with him back in December. This latest bit of news, if true, could set up a potential bidding war for the coveted center fielder. Now that the arbitration in MLB is over, we could start to see a flurry of free agent signings and trades in the coming days.
