There’s a really good chance that when the lockout ends, the Atlanta Braves might not be keeping veteran first baseman Freddie Freeman.
We’ve heard the New York Yankees interest in Freddie Freeman. We can add the New York Mets to the list of teams in on Freeman as well.
The Mets already have Pete Alonso at first base, but if the National League is likely going to adopt the designated hitter in 2022, so the Mets can transition Alonso to DH if they wanted to and put Freeman at first if they wanted to sign him.
Before the lockout happened, the Mets went on a spending spree and added Max Scherzer, Eduardo Escobar, Mark Canha and Starling Marte.
With new owner Steve Cohen clearly ready to spend, could Freeman be the next one who dons the blue and orange of the Mets?
We won’t know until the lockout ends; whenever that is.
