ESPN's Jeff Passan reported earlier Tuesday that Springer and the Jays were in agreement as well.
New York has apparently lost the race for the 31-year-old Springer, who has played all seven of his MLB seasons with the Astros, winning the 2017 World Series and the 2019 American League pennant with the team. The three-time All-Star had 14 home runs, 32 RBI and a .265 batting average (.899 OPS) last year.
He's an excellent addition to a 32-28 team that made the playoffs this season for the first time since 2016. The young Jays feature some potential 25-and-under superstars in Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette and Cavan Biggio.
The farm system also has one of baseball's top right-handed pitching prospects in Nate Pearson, who is ranked No. 6 overall on MLB Pipeline's prospect list.
The future is bright in Toronto, and adding Springer will only make it better.
