In the end, despite all the fuss and fuss about the slow descent, George Springer will get his money. According to Jeff Passon, the second $ 100 million contract the franchise has signed, it was the largest contract in the history of the Toronto Blue Jays, a six-year, $ 150 million deal.
The Blue Jays are trying to spend money on all offers, but it’s hard to woo free agents in Toronto. Kelly McDaniel’s free-agent rankings predicted a four-year, $ 108 million contract for Springer, so he essentially matched that to the annual value, adding just a few more years. For the money, the Blue Jash are getting one of the best center fielders in baseball, with some risks involved, as the contract takes Springer from his age-31 to age-36 season.
First, Springer brings to power – 39 home runs in just 122 games in 2019 and 14 HRs in 51 games in 2020 – and a positive flawed matrix.
