After 100 days, the lockout is over and baseball is finally back. Which means, we can continue the free agent and trade speculation.
First up is Freddie Freeman, who has all kinds of internet from the Atlanta Braves, New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers.
Freeman is a career member of the Braves and just won a World Series for them back in 2021 and has made it clear he wants to stay. But he also turned down a five-year offer from Atlanta before the lockout ended.
The Yankees have remained very interested in Freeman and would love to add his bat and glove into the lineup.
The Dodgers still have Max Muncy, although he is recovering from elbow surgery. Even if Munch returns, the National League has the universal DH in place, which would help the Dodgers case.
Ultimately, Freeman’s choice could come down to who offers that sixth year in free agency.
