Blue Jays George Springer has had the worst season of his career this season but seems to be turning it around which is good for the team but also means he will possibly get traded at the deadline.

Springer was batting under .200 up until a few weeks ago which is why most believed that no team would take on his huge contract. Now that he is playing better, the Blue Jays might be able to move him with 16 RBIs in his last 12 games while batting .436 in that time with 5 homeruns.
Springer has been a different player since then. He is hitting .436 with five homers and 16 RBIs over his last 12 games. His OPS soared to .672 and along the way he reclaimed his customary spot at the top of the Jays' batting order.

Toronto will likely not get much in return for the outfielder but if they are able to get a good junk of his salary off the books and a couple prospects in return it will be a successful trade.
It should go without saying that, if the Jays move Springer, they won't get much of anything in return. At most, the organization might be able to acquire a low-level prospect. The goal here isn't to restock the minor leagues, it's to open a roster spot and shed some salary.

While nothing is set in stone, this could be great for the Blue Jays as they are looking to make some big changes for next season to avoid another disappointing year in 2025.
