MLB Insiders strongly believe Trea Turner could find his way to the Philadelphia Phillies. The Dodgers are going to do what they can to bring back their shortstop. With the huge payroll the Dodgers have it leaves the door open for Turner to find a new team.
The Phillies present an enticing option to Turner with the roster they have. They made it to the World Series and still have Bryce Harper to team up with Turner. Of course, the relationship with Harper and Turner extends back to their days on the Nationals (quotes via MLB Network).
“First off, the Phillies, for a variety of reasons a lot of people here believe the Phillies are perhaps the most likely landing spot of all for Trea Turner. Let’s begin with his close friendship with Bryce Harper, going back to their time with the Nationals. That is one element here, where Trea would love to play with Bryce again.”
“There’s some interesting rumblings that he wants to be here,” Jayson Stark of The Athletic said of Turner during an appearance on 97.5 The Fanatic, as per David Grzybowski.
Whichever team Turner inevitably ends up on, it’s no question he will bring the championship level of talent the organization is looking for.
