The Toronto Blue Jays have reportedly agreed to trade Ben Revere to the Washington Nationals for relief pitcher Drew Storen.

Jon Heyman of MLB Network was the first to report the news. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports confirmed the deal.

The Washington Nationals were immediately seeking to fill the void in center field left by Denard Span, who signed a three-year deal with the San Francisco Giants on Friday (per the team's official Twitter account).

Heyman first named Revere as a potential target just before the deal was agreed to.

Revere joined the Blue Jays last season and was a critical cog in their first run to the playoffs since 1993.
