Free-agent hurler Trevor Bauer took to social media last night to flirt with fans north of the border as he ponders his future destination.

Trevor Bauer is arguably the most attractive player on the open market this offseason and will be in the driver’s seat in determining his next team. The Blue Jays could be one of those teams to pursue the hurler this offseason to shore up their rotation for 2021 and beyond.

The MLB Network discussed the possibility of Bauer landing in Toronto and quipped that he would join Hyun Jin Ryu and Nate Pearson as the “three-headed monster”. Bauer didn’t pass up on the opportunity to flirt with Blue Jays fans tweeting that “Toronto is a nice city. Could be a destination.”

This is not the first time that Bauer has tweeted about specific destinations as the right-hander is definitely soaking up the moment. He is the odds on favourite to win the National League Cy Young award en route to a very lucrative offseason for the 29-year old.

A few weeks earlier Blue Jays outfielder Randal Grichuk reached out to Bauer on social media attempting to sell the pitcher on Toronto as an ideal landing spot. Bauer then questioned if Blue Jays fans still hated him from their back and forth following the drone debacle in the 2016 playoffs.

I am pretty confident that fans north of the border would be ready and willing to accept Bauer as one of their own for the next four or five seasons. He would definitely turn the starting rotation into one of the most feared trios in the entire league.

Bauer has previously been vocal about only signing one-year deals from here on out, however, this is his one chance at riches where all the stars have lined up for him entering free agency. It would be crazy to think that Bauer will not attempt to maximize his financial value in a weak free-agent market.

Bauer loves to troll fans on Twitter but hopefully, Toronto will be in the conversation when he does finally make a decision on his baseball fate.
