MLB Free Agent Tracker 2020-2021

Gerrit Cole

Position: SP

Former Team: Houston Astros

New Team: New York Yankees (9 Yrs/$324 Million)

Lineups Analysis: The Yankees went out and got their ace. After the run Gerrit Cole put on in Houston, he will become the top dog in the Bronx. Arguably the best pitcher in baseball will look to lead the Yankees to a World Series win.

Anthony Rendon

Position: 3B

Former Team: Washington Nationals

New Team: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (7 Yrs/$245 Million)

Lineups Analysis: Washington had some decisions to make as far as who they were going to keep, and Anthony Rendon headed out west. He will join the Angels, bolstering a lineup that already features the game’s best player.

Stephen Strasburg

Position: SP

Former Team: Washington Nationals

New Team: Washington Nationals (7 Yrs/$245 Million)

Lineups Analysis: Stephen Strasburg was a playoff hero for the Nationals, and he got paid like one. Washington drafted Strasburg back in 2009, and he is looking to remain with the club for another half a decade.

Zack Wheeler

Position: SP

Former Team: New York Mets

New Team: Philadelphia Phillies (5 Yrs/$118 Million)

Lineups Analysis: Zack Wheeler won’t move terribly far, and will stay within the same division. Wheeler will move to a slightly less favorable home ballpark for pitching, but filled a need for the Phillies.

Josh Donaldson

Position: 3B

Former Team: Atlanta Braves

New Team: Minnesota Twins (4 Yrs/$92 Million)

Lineups Analysis: It has been a few years, but Josh Donaldson finally got that contract he was looking for. While Minnesota didn’t need dramatic help on the offensive side, Donaldson will slide into one of the game’s best offenses.

Madison Bumgarner

Position: SP

Former Team: San Francisco Giants

New Team: Arizona Diamondbacks (5 Yrs/$85 Million)

Lineups Analysis: Those Giants championship teams are starting to find their way out of the Bay Area. Madison Bumgarner is another one who stays within the division. This gives the Diamondbacks a replacement for Zack Greinke.

Hyun-Jin Ryu

Position: SP

Former Team: Los Angeles Dodgers

New Team: Toronto Blue Jays (4 Yrs/$80 Million)

Lineups Analysis: Toronto has a group of young hitters that will be the future of baseball. They needed pitching and went out and landed Hyun-Jin Ryu on a four year deal. I love this for both sides, although the AL East is a downgrade from pitching in the NL West.
