MLB Fireplace Rumors: Yankees Show Interest in Freddie Freeman
As we count down the days until the CBA expires, there is still some action on the MLB rumor mill. We’ll get to that in a second.
First, there was a big signing that happened on Monday morning. Left-handed starter Eduardo Rodríguez signed 5-year, $77 million contract deal with Many tigers when the club managed to turn the corner and put the rebuild in the rearview mirror.
As for the gossip of the day, let’s dig into it.
Yankees show interest in Freeman
The most obvious conclusion for Freddie Freemanhis free agency is he re-signed with brave, possibly for the rest of his career. However, with him gaining free agency before signing an extension, the Braves are definitely risking another team rushing in and grabbing Freeman. We heard about Dodgers was a possibility, and now the Yankees have been thrown into the mix. Jon Heyman’s MLB The network reported that the Yankees met with Freeman’s representatives recently.
Of course, Heyman also reported that Anthony Rizzo (free agent) or Matt Olson (via commercial) is probably the more realistic choice for the Yankees, as the Braves are still Freeman’s favorites.
Still, it’s at least interesting to see teams outside of Atlanta eyeing Freeman. His forehand at Yankee Stadium will also be a huge plus in that squad.
Correa and Tigers continue to be like a match

They need a shortcut and the current manager AJ Hinch is who Astros‘manage for the first five years of Carlos Correacareer of. Tiger General Manager Alex Avila has publicly said that, yes, shortstop is also a need.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that the Tigers are contenders for Correa or anything, but they absolutely sound like a great fit. Guaranteed enough, Robert Murray’s report Fansided that the Tigers met with this Correa representative at the general manager meetings last week.
Correa recently turned down the Astros’ qualifying offer. Talk about, here is our updated QO tracker.
