The start of spring is within eyeshot, but some of baseball’s biggest names still don’t have contracts. While deals haven’t been signed, it is clear that the same teams are involved in many of these rumored negotiations.
This week, SB Nation Reacts asked MLB fans where they think some of these free agents will end up. According to those results, 37% of fans believe 2020 Cy Young winner Trevor Bauer will sign with the Los Angeles Angels. The runners-up were the Mets (23%), Blue Jays (18%), Yankees (15%), and ... Giants (7%)?
The Mets, Blue Jays and Yankees — along with the Dodgers — are also in the running for infielder DJ LeMahieu. A majority (60%) of fans believe the former All-Star and batting champ will return to the Yankees. Those with faint chances include the Dodgers (19%), Blue Jays (11%), and Mets (9%).
Also on the market is former World Series MVP George Springer. The former Astros outfielder has also been linked to the Mets and Blue Jays, along with the Braves and Astros. According to 37% of fans, Springer will sign with the Mets. In this heated battle, the Blue Jays (25%), Braves (19%) and Astros (19%) all have a shot.
