MLB: The nine clubs after Steven Matz, who will win?

Interest in the left-handed pitcher Steven Matz has been very solid, with Red Sox, Blue Jays, Mets, Dodgers, Cardinals and Angels among teams already rumored to have an interest. Added to Tigers, Cubs, and Giants to that mix. The Mets have made a formal offer, although eight other clubs have joined them in that regard.

Each of the Tigers, Cubs and Giants entered the offseason they have been known to seek help in the rotation. The Cubs claimed veteran left-hander Wade Miley off waivers from the division rivals Cincinnati Reds:

Detroit has already signed Venezuelan left-hander Eduardo Rodríguez, while San Francisco has reunited with right-hander Anthony DeSclafani and left-hander Alex Wood. None of that trio of clubs have as marked a rotation need as they did two weeks ago, but there is enough uncertainty on the staff of all three clubs that they can and will likely make another rotation addition of some sort this winter.

The Blue Jays considered making Matz a qualifying offer of $ 18.4 million, but ultimately decided against it. Toronto won’t get a compensatory pick if he signed elsewhere, while adding Matz wouldn’t cost another team a draft pick.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
