The Toronto Blue Jays are looking to added some speed to their outfield.

According multiple reports, the club is in discussions with free agent speedster Joey Gathright.

Despite an earlier report from the Toronto Sun saying that the deal was done, all parties involved are saying that isn't the case.

Reynolds Sports Management, Gathright's agency, has disputed the report, as has Blue Jays assistant general manager Tony LaCava.

"We haven't finished anything," LaCava told bluejays.com blogger Jordan Bastian.  "We're talking to him and his agents, as are other teams."

The 28-year old Gathright has played parts of six seasons in the Majors.

Last season, played 30 games with the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs, getting eight hits in 30 at-bats.

He spent the majority of the season in Triple-A with Norfolk and Pawtucket, where he hit .325 with 20 RBI, and had 24 stolen bases.  Of his 108 hits, only 13 were for extra bases (11 doubles, 2 triples).

Gathright, who has spent time in Tampa Bay, Chicago, Baltimore, Boston and Kansas City, is a lifetime .263 hitter, who has stolen 80 bases, while getting caught 29 times.
