The MLB playoff is full steam ahead but that won’t stop pundits from talking about next years free agency. Big players are set to hit the market with their futures remaining unknown and among the top talent brings Trea Turner and his future team.
It was speculated that although Turner wouldn’t mind staying with the Dodgers, he also would prefer going back to the east coast with the Phillies emerging as a top destination. Despite those rumors, the Giants have now emerged as a potential landing spot for Turner.
The Giants are looking to break the bank open and also have their eyes on Yankees star outfielder Aaron Judge who is expected to be paid big money this off-season (via Bob Nightengale, USA Today).
“The San Francisco Giants will pursue not only Yankees star Aaron Judge in free agency, but also Dodgers All-Star shortstop Trea Turner,” Nightengale wrote. “If the Yankees won’t pay the $300 million Judge wants, he could wind up in San Francisco – just two hours away from his hometown.”
This further throws a wrench in things with Turner’s future with the Dodgers becoming more of a question mark. Will the Dodgers do what it takes to bring back the star shortstop or will they need to find a replacement soon?
Possibly a World Series championship could entice Turner to stay with the Dodgers for at least another season. Or the opposite can happen feeling like he’s already done what was needed for his career and will look to make the most money possible.
It would be hard to imagine turning down $250+ million.
