Latest Baseball Rumors: Trade Talks, Free Agency Buzz, and More
With the MLB season just around the corner, baseball rumors are swirling as teams make last-minute trades and free agent signings. One of the hottest rumors right now involves the New York Yankees, who are reportedly in talks to acquire pitcher Max Scherzer from the Washington Nationals. Scherzer is a former Cy Young winner and would be a huge addition to the Yankees’ already-stacked rotation. Other teams, like the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers, are also making moves in the hopes of competing for a World Series title.
Another rumor making the rounds is that the Chicago Cubs are shopping first baseman Anthony Rizzo. Rizzo is a fan favorite and has been with the Cubs for nearly a decade, but the team may be looking to rebuild and shed some payroll. Other players who could be on the move include Kris Bryant of the Cubs and Francisco Lindor of the Cleveland Indians.
In free agency news, the top remaining player on the market is outfielder Bryce Harper. Harper turned down a 10-year, $300 million offer from the Nationals earlier this offseason, and it’s unclear where he’ll end up. The Philadelphia Phillies have emerged as a possible landing spot, but other teams like the San Francisco Giants and Chicago White Sox are also said to be interested.
These are just a few of the baseball rumors circulating around the league right now. As the season gets underway, expect even more rumors to emerge as teams jockey for position in what promises to be a thrilling season of America’s pastime.
