George Springer is a Toronto Blue Jays. He's signing a six-year $150 million deal with the Jays, the largest contract in franchise history.
From Rob Longley in the Sun.
Back to Springer, the Astros first-round pick (11th overall) in the 2011 draft has been an elite top of the order hitter since making his big-league debut in 2014. In his last six full seasons (excluding the shortened 2020 campaign) the 31-year-old has averaged 27 home runs.
He’s tasted plenty of playoff success along the way as well and now will be looked upon as the star and clubhouse leader of a young Jays team with designs on doing the same.
