The Toronto Blue Jays have been one of the most active teams on the free-agent front during the offseason so far, signing Cuban youngster Lourdes Gurriel Jr. to a seven-year deal, before reportedly agreeing to a three-year contract with Kendrys Morales.

It appears the Blue Jays may not be done just yet, either. Toronto is showing interest in right-handed hitting Steve Pearce as a potential platoon partner with the left-handed hitting Justin Smoak at first base, reports FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

Pearce, 33, had a chance to become a member of the Blue Jays after being designated for assignment by the Orioles in 2014, but instead turned down an offer from the club and went on to have a breakout campaign in Baltimore, hitting .293/.373/.556 with 21 home runs.

The 10-year MLB veteran hasn't had a season as productive since, but belted 13 home runs and added 35 RBIs with an .867 OPS for the Tampa Bay Rays and Orioles last season.

Pearce earned $4.75 million in 2016.
