It’s no secret that the Braves need to re-sign Freddie Freeman. The only question is the cost. Freeman rejected the Braves’ initial offer of 5 years for $135 million. The free agent is seeking a deal closer to $200 million and a projected 6 years.
Re-signing Freeman at that price is not out of the question, considering Alex Anthopoulos said the payroll was raised after the World Series title. Freeman has made it clear that he wants to be in Atlanta; now, it’s a matter of making competitive offers amongst the open market.
- The Dodgers have shown interest in right handers Luis Castillo and Sonny Gray. The status of any negotiations is unknown.
- Aaron Judge wants to finish his career in a Yankees uniform. Judge will become a free agent after the 2022 season.
