George Springer is looking to strike it rich in free agency as the outfielder is looking for "well over $150 million," MLB insider Andy Martino reports.

The Toronto Blue Jays have shown interest in the free-agent outfielder since November, along with the New York Mets who reportedly offered a deal worth five years and $125 million, according to Martino. Springer slashed .265/.359/.540 with a .899 OPS, 14 home runs and 32 RBI in 51 games in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.

The Blue Jays have been linked to several free agents this off-season including Springer, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Trevor Bauer who is reportedly asking for a five- or six-year contract with an average value between $36 million and $40 million according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network.
