The Blue Jays outrighted Jeremy Reed to create space on their 40-man roster and the utilityman refused the assignment and elected free agency, according to the team (via Twitter). Reed, 29, picked up three hits in 21 at bats for the Jays this year, walking twice and hitting one home run. He played left, right and first base, though most of his MLB experience has come in center field.
Reed has a .253/.311/.356 line in parts of seven seasons with the Mets, Mariners and Blue Jays and UZR/150 suggests that Reed has been an above-average center fielder in his career. He joins outfielders such as Rocco Baldelli, Cory Sullivan and Jermaine Dye on our list of current free agents.
