One of the Dodgers’ current free agents that has been overshadowed by Justin Turner and Kenley Jansen is Josh Reddick. Though Reddick struggled with Los Angeles at first, he eventually found his bat and was able to contribute to the team down the stretch.

Well, it looks like the Dodgers have some competition in signing the outfielder. Jon Morosi of Fox Sports stated that Toronto is interested in Reddick; however, they are waiting to hear back from José Bautista first.

In 47 games with the Dodgers, Reddick hit .258 with 2 home runs and 9 runs batted in. Though the numbers seem a little low, he showed a lot of promise in the month of September where he hit an astounding .400 in 65 at-bats.

The Dodgers do have a bit of a surplus of outfielders, with players like Joc Pederson, Andrew Toles, Andre Ethier, and others returning in 2017. We will see if the front office sees enough value in Reddick to go up against teams like Toronto in signing him.
