Ray payroll is typically in the $75 million – $85 million range, if not less than a certain number of years. That’s where they project for the 2022 season, assuming they don’t add talent like Freeman.
The talented first baseman remains far away with the Braves on a new contract, as Atalanta refuses to add a sixth year to any offer. Freeman played the final year on his deal this past season, taking the Braves to a World Series without complaining in the least.
Due to the lockout, the Braves haven’t been able to speak with Freeman or his representatives. Any interest garnered by other parties in Freeman was done before the lockout, but as the lockout drags on, the frustration from both sides is heightened.
Did sign with the braves:
It’s been a strange winter for the Braves and their fans, who had but four weeks to revel in Atlanta’s first World Series title in 27 years before the lockout brought business to a halt.
Morosi fed into the Dodgers potentially acquiring Freeman for a few reasons. Firstly, the Braves have not signed him again. It looked like it was finished already in October, but they didn’t finish it before the lockdown.
Secondly, Freeman grew up in Southern California. He went to high school in Orange, California, which is a suburb of Los Angeles. It is about 40 miles from Dodger Stadium.
Third, the NL now have the universal DH, so the Dodgers may have one more bat to put in their lineup. And, finally, and to the point of DH, their regular first baseman Max Muncie was injured in the final game of the regular season on a play at first base.
The drama tore his UCL. While Munsey says it is progressing well, the Dodgers can use Freeman and DH Muncie to get him back in the game.
In addition to the Braves, Dodgers and Yankees, Freeman may also have some potential boyfriends like the Tampa Bay Rays, as David Hill of Call to the Pains wrote earlier this week, but those three are the most obvious landing spots.
