MLB: Who do the minimum 13 clubs evaluated by shortstops have at the shortstop?

A total of at least 13 novenas are doing an evaluation of the market for elite shorts that are available this low season: The Puerto Rican Javier Báez, Marcus Semien, Trevor Story, Corey Seager and Carlos Correa from Puerto Rico. Here is a look at the situation of those 13 teams with their current short stop:

* Philadelphia Phillies: The Dutch Didi gregorius signed until 2022, but had -0.9 bWAR in 2021.

* Tigers: Detroit does not have a clear starting shortstop and has been linked to Carlos Correa.

* Texas Rangers: Isiah Kiner-Falefa He is a strong defender, but has a career OPS + of 81.

* New York Yankees: With Gleyber Torres returning to second base and prospects Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza at least a year away, the Yankees are in dire need at shortstop.

* Los Angeles Dodgers: If Corey Seager leaves, the Dodgers could trade Trea Turner to shortstop, although Turner may become a free agent next year.

* Anaheim Angels: The Halos don’t have a clear starting shortstop, but their rotation could be an even greater area of ​​need.

* Twins: With Andrelton Simmons in free agency and prospect Royce Lewis coming off a torn ACL in his right knee, Minnesota could put Jorge Polanco back at shortstop.

* Houston Astros: They will need a replacement for Correa (assuming he declines the qualifying offer).

* Chicago Cubs: Nico Hoerner is the answer?

* San Luis Cardinals: Paul DeJong and Edmundo Sosa of Panama are his current shortstop options.

* Colorado Rockies: They will need a replacement for Trevor Story (assuming he declines the qualifying offer).

* Mariners: Seattle could keep Gold Glover, JP Crawford at shortstop and sign a free agent like Marcus Semien for second base.

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 a 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 at 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.
