Springer received $150 million over the lifetime of the deal. It is the richest deal ever given to a player, who signed with the Blue Jays.
He will need to sign a per-signing physical exam for the deal to become official. Springer will have the tests at the Blue Jays’ spring training complex in Dunedin, Florida.
Springer would be the team’s starting right field. He is projected to be in an outfield that includes Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (left field), and Randal Grichuk (center field).
The Blue Jays are also interested in signing his teammate Michael Brantley.
The 31-year-old New Britain, Connecticut-born athlete spent his entire career with the Houston Astros. He was a three-time All-Star and two-time Silver Slugger.

During his final season with the Astros in 2020, Springer had a .265 batting average with 14 home runs and 32 RBIs in 51 games. He also had six doubles and two triples on 50 hits, while scoring 37 runs.
