The next free agency of the MLB have a large number of star players, who will demand lucrative deals from the teams that require their services.
Here we list the five infielders who will sign the best contracts in the major league’s 2022 free agency.
The Colorado Rockies will watch how Trevor Story will leave this winter to sign a record contract, which according to Spotrac, could reach $ 240 million for the next 8 years. That amount of money can only be paid by teams like: Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees or Los Angeles Angels.
Although injuries have been the main enemy of Seager, his quality as a shortstop is undeniable and that is why he will receive a $ 272 million settlement, which would place him among the highest paid in his position. The big question is whether they will be the Dodgers the owners of that deal that is projected for 9 years.
Correa turned down an extension with the Astros, only to receive a better one for $ 266 and 10 years or $ 300 million and 12 seasons. The Tigers are rumored to be candidates, but their current project won’t allow it, making the Yankees and Angels look favorites as their next destination.
Javier Báez has been comfortable playing for the Mets, but for that union to be maintained, the team will have to pay a $ 192 million, 8-year agreement or else he will leave. The reports indicate that New York will give him what he asks for and it is even stated that there have already been conversations on the subject.
Semien’s historic season has regained its market value, which is $ 90 million. If Toronto wants to keep their project, the second baseman must be an option that will cost them $ 18 million per year.
