Thanksgiving is just around the corner, but before the handicapped gluttony kicks in, let’s make time for some MLB rumours. So here they are, served hot and available for sandwiches at the weekend.
Dodgers focus on re-signing Seager
The Dodgers, who appear nine times in a row after the season, have some free agents Who should be the priority item this winter. One of them is the shortstop Corey Seager, and the club really looks committed to bringing him back:
Seager, 27, is about to have a 2021 season in which he records .306 / .394 / .521 with 16 home runs in 95 games. For his career, he owns a OPS + is 131 – an excellent number, especially by shortstop standards – with 26 home runs and 42 doubles over 162 games played. Speaking of games played, Seager continues to carry concerns about his health and durability, which could put some downward pressure on his market. Needless to say, however, the Dodgers have enough resources to bring him back regardless of the odds of going. Seager has been an essential part of their recent dominance, and he expects top form, at least when healthy, for many years to come.
Mets still looking for help with rotation
After missing Steven Matz – much to the disappointment of owner Steve Cohen – The Mets will now look elsewhere to reinforce the rear rotation Jacob deGrom. To put it witty:
Gausman seems to be able to re-up with Giant, on whose watch he has reached new levels, but there is no doubt that he is interested in some teams and it is possible that the market will set a price beyond what the Giants have available willing to pay. As for Stroman, he thrived last season for the Mets and has performed at the ace level since the start of the 2019 season. As Martino’s tweet points out, the Mets are entering the market for a wide range of weapons and follow-ups. previously reported, they focus on freelance agents who don’t receive a qualified offer (which will likely cost the Mets a draft if they sign such a free agent).
Let’s make two small additions
The Mets on Wednesday announced two small pickups. First they signed a midfielder Nick Plummer with a one year contract, major league and then they claim to be right hand man Antonio Santos exempt from Rockies. Plummer, 25, is a former first-round player who can play all three positions off the field. He also enjoyed an offensive breakthrough last season in the higher ranks of Quantity‘farm system. The Mets are betting that he will find a new level in the future. Santos, 25, has good ball speed and depth but hasn’t been able to reap much success in his short stint against the Rockies.
