The Michael Brantley era in Toronto is over before it began.
Despite a report earlier today from Hazel Mae that said the Blue Jays and Brantley had agreed to a three-year contract, the veteran outfielder is sticking around with the Houston Astros.
MLB source: #Astros reach an agreement with Michael Brantley on a two-year deal worth $32 million.

This is certainly unfortunate, but it isn’t the end of the world.
When it came to the George Springer and Michael Brantley package, the former was obviously the one to get hyped about. There’s no doubt that adding Brantley’s bat to the lineup would have been huge, but we still have Springer.
