MLB Free Agent Rumors

  • The Detroit Tigers already signed Javier Baez, who could play either 2B or SS, but they might not be done there. It sounded like Carlos Correa could have been on his way to Detroit before MLB came to a halt. However, it sounds like the price is a bit too steep for the Tigers at the moment. Of course, there is a lot of interest in Correa, and I believe the Cubs are an interesting team to watch out for when it comes to signings Correa.
  • Freddie Freeman is really down to two teams, Atlanta or the New York Yankees. Money isn’t an issue for either team, but Atlanta will voice that statement is incorrect. New York is in dire need of a lefty bat and Freeman would thrive in some AL East ballparks, including the short porch in Yankee Stadium. Atlanta coming off a World Series could start to pocket cash as we have seen teams do at times and that could cost them resigning Freeman despite a desire to stay in Atlanta.
  • What about some right-handed power bats? Nick Castellanos and Kris Bryant are both on the market and have been linked to numerous ballclubs. The universal DH bodes well for these guys moving forward. San Francisco will be in the market, but will they be aggressive in signing one of these names? It is possible, but Bryant has been rumored to take a big deal in Seattle, while Castellanos could go to a number of teams like San Diego, San Francisco, and even back to Detroit.
  • One of the many high-profile shortstops in this year’s free agent class is Trevor Story. Colorado’s bone-headed front office failed to trade him, despite Story making it well known he won’t be coming back to Colorado. We have already seen a few middle infielders land monster deals. Houston will be looking for a Correa replacement and a one-year deal has been talked about for Story before he hits the market again next year. However, the Mariners are going to splash some cash, and big market teams like the Cardinals and Cubs will be looking for a big bat as well.
