The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported on Monday evening that Granderson and the Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to a one-year, $5 million contract that is pending a physical.

Curtis Granderson is heading to Canada.

Granderson, who admitted to considering retirement after what was a 14th big-league season in 2017, is now committed to a 15th Major League Baseball campaign.

Controversy over Trump comments threatens DACA talks
However, one of the Republican Senators who attended the meeting today claimed that Trump never used that word. Lindsey Graham said his memory "hasn't evolved" since Thursday's controversial Oval Office meeting.

Granderson had been mentioned as a possible acquisition by the Blue Jays at the last two trade deadlines.

Granderson hit.212/.323/.452 last season, while also adding 26 home runs 64 RBI, and earning a 1.5 bWAR rating. He'll be used in left or right field (or both) against right-handed pitching. He had a tough stint with the Dodgers late a year ago but hit a serviceable.212/.323/.452 (105 wRC+) with 25 homers overall. What it means for Teoscar Hernandez, Ezequiel Carrera, and others remains to be seen, but at the very least the Blue Jays added a veteran with a long history of success.

The Dodgers were Granderson's fourth team as he started his career with the Detroit Tigers, then went to the New York Yankees and the Mets. He has played there consistently over the past several seasons.
