Toronto Blue Jays "In Talks" With World Series-Winning Outfielder

The Toronto Blue Jays' interest in Michael A. Taylor, a free agent center fielder, has been a significant talking point this offseason.

Multiple reports, primarily from MLB insider Jon Morosi, indicate that the Blue Jays have been actively discussing the possibility of signing Taylor.

These discussions have been ongoing and suggest a strong interest on the part of the Blue Jays' management in securing Taylor's talents for their team.

Taylor, who is 32 years old, has been noted for his impressive performance, particularly in the 2021 season when he achieved a career-high of 21 home runs and won a Gold Glove.

This commendable performance adds to his appeal as a potential addition to the Blue Jays.

His experience in the big leagues, spanning over a decade, is also a significant factor in the interest he has garnered.

Known for his right-handed batting and speed, Taylor made appearances in 129 games in a recent season, showcasing his reliability and skill as an outfielder.

The Blue Jays, by targeting Taylor, appear to be looking to strengthen their outfield options.

Last season, Taylor slashed .220/.278/.442, with a career-high 21 home runs, 51 RBIs, 13 stolen bases, and 48 runs scored across 129 games played.

Given Taylor's track record and the ongoing nature of the discussions, it seems there is a mutual interest in reaching an agreement, though the specifics of any potential deal have not been disclosed​​. Photo Credit: Matt Blewett-USA TODAY Sports
