  • George Springer Agrees To Six-Year Deal With Blue Jays

    The Toronto Blue Jays agreed to a six-year, $150 million deal with star outfielder George Springer on Tuesday night, pending a physical. Springer slashed .265/.359/.540 with 14 homers and 32 RBI across 220 plate appearances in 2020 with Houston. The three-time All-Star joins a promising group of young talent in Toronto, which boosts the fantasy value of all parties involved. Springer batted at the top of the order for most of his Astros career, and that is likely to continue with the Blue Jays. The 31-year-old is a worthy selection within the first 50 picks during fantasy drafts in 2021. Springer has only contributed double-digit steals once in his seven-year career, but he should contribute nicely to the rest of the counting stats in one of the best hitter's parks in baseball.

  • George Springer Could Find A Team This Week

    Free-agent outfielder George Springer could make his decision on a team this week, according to multiple industry sources. The Toronto Blue Jays and New York Mets remain the two front-runners, with both teams offering nine figures. The only things stopping the Mets pursuit of Springer may be their desire not to exceed the competitive balance tax threshold and the possibility of having no designated hitter in the National League in 2021. New York could pitch Springer on a stretched contract similar to the one the Yankees gave second baseman DJ LeMahieu (six years, $90 million). The Blue Jays could have the edge with far more room to operate under the tax threshold. Springer's fantasy value shouldn't change all that much in either spot, although Toronto's hitting environment would be a bit more beneficial. Either way, he's coming off the board in the top five rounds as a top-15 fantasy outfielder.
