The Toronto Blue Jays are on the list of teams who have met with free-agent catcher Yasmani Grandal, according to ESPN’s Marly Rivera.

The Blue Jays have reportedly been active this off-season, meeting with multiple agents and players as they consider pitching and position-player options in the free-agent market.

Grandal is considered the top catcher in this year’s free agency. The 31-year-old was an all-star in 2019 after signing a one-year deal with the Milwaukee Brewers with a mutual option for 2020, which he declined.

He finished the year with a .246/.380/.468 slash line, 28 home runs and 77 RBIs.

Grandal was a first-round pick with the Cincinnati Reds and made his major-league debut with the San Diego Padres in 2012. He also played with the Los Angeles Dodgers from 2015 to 2018, earning his first of two all-star nods in his first year with the club.
