Brett Gardner Turned Down This Contract Offer From the Blue Jays

Love him!!! cool smiley





Gardner has reportedly turned down a few interested teams over the last few months as he remains available in free agency.


According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, Gardner actually turned down a one-year deal from the Blue Jays when MLB's lockout ended. The contract was worth $6 million, more than Gardner receiver from New York when he re-signed on a one-year pact last spring.

Toronto wasn't the only team that inquired about Gardner's availability either. Rosenthal added that the defending champion Braves—a team situated not too far logistically from Gardner's hometown of Holly Hill, South Carolina—gauged his interest in recent weeks.

That correspondence was a result of Atlanta's outfielder Eddie Rosario needing to miss multiple months while recovering from a laser procedure to correct blurred vision and swelling in his right eye. Gardner declined to pursue the opportunity, per Rosenthal.
