The Toronto Blue Jays are reportedly interested in bringing outfielder Alex Rios back into the fold.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Blue Jays are amongst a handful of teams interested in the 33-year-old veteran's services.

The Kansas City Royals and Seattle Mariners are reportedly also among the other clubs with interest in Rios.

This season, Rios is hitting .302 with four home runs, 41 runs and 42 RBI in 96 games with the Rangers.

Rios made his MLB debut with the Blue Jays in 2004 and finished his rookie season hitting .286 with one home run, 55 runs and 28 RBI in 111 games. He played with the Jays through the 2009 season before the team put him on waivers.

The Chicago White Sox claimed him off waivers and Rios spent just over four seasons in the Windy City.

In 2013, the White Sox traded him to the Texas Rangers in exchange for Leury Garcia.

Rios is earning $12.5 million this season and has a team option for $13.5 million next year.
