Semien played second baseman for the Blue Jays last season due to the presence of Bo Bichette in the short stops, becoming the second baseman who has hit the most homers in a single season with 45 homers in the past 2021 season.

Heyman himself mentions that the four shorts eligible to receive a qualifying offer (Marcus Semien, Trevor Story, Corey Seager, Carlos Correa) will reject it and look for big numbers in the market.

I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.
