Trea Turner is one of the best shortstops in the game and he is ready to cash in this off-season. He is expected to sign a deal worth $33.6 million per season.
Turner’s agency, CAA Baseball, decided to put together a hype video ahead of his upcoming free agency. Narrated by actor Jon Hamm, Turner’s free agency video sells the 2019 World Series champion to his potential landing spot and the stats prove why he’s going to be one of the most sought-after free agents on the market.
“A true superstar in today’s game. This guy does it all. He can run, he can throw, he plays elite shortstop. He hits. He hits for power,” Hamm said. “He can lead off and be a table setter, or he can hit second or third and be a run producer.”
Turner had 194 hits, 101 runs and 100 RBI with 21 homers, 39 doubles and four triples with a .298 batting average in 160 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers during the 2022 season. Because of his elite production, Turner is expected to get a deal worth $33.6 million per season, according to Spotrac. It’s a price tag that fits his play. The team that lands him will get a consistent player on both sides of the ball.
