MLB Free Agent Rumors: New York Yankees prefer Corey Seager over Carlos Correa

We all know the New York Yankees are likely going to go big for one of the main free agent shortstops. But which one?

Carlos Correa or Corey Seager?

The feeling around baseball, as Mark Feinsand of said, is that the Yankees prefer Seager over Correa.

Sweeny Murti of WFAN made a good point about the Houston Astros cheating scandal and how it could be a factor for players, especially Aaron Judge.

Given Seager’s track record as a former World Series MVP, it would be a huge win for the Yankees lineup to have his bat and glove in the lineup.

The Detroit Tigers are the team that are expected to sign Correa in free agency.
