The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed Boston Red Sox designated hitter JD Martinez to a one-year, $10 million contract.
Prior to this, he also signed pitcher Noah Syndergaard for 13 million dollars for one year.
And despite the departure of shortstop Trea Turner, the Dodgers haven’t even looked at free agent heavyweights. On the outside, they seemed interested, but inside they were different. I just watched the big contracts such as Xander Bogatz, Carlos Correa, and Dansby Swanson.
So, why is the Dodgers quieter this offseason than in previous years?
It’s to prepare for next year’s offseason.
Next year, pitcher Julio Urias will be on the free agent market. Clayton Kershaw is also likely to leave the Dodgers and go to the Texas Rangers or retire.
We need to prepare for the departure of Urias and Kershaw.
Coincidentally, Shohei Ohtani of the ‘Two Swords’ also appears in the free agency interview. Ohtani is sure to leave the Los Angeles Angels for a World Series contender.스포츠토토
It is a common opinion among MLB officials that the treatment for him is 10 years and 500 million dollars.
The Dodgers are expected to go all-in on recruiting Ohtani to solve the pitcher and designated hitter issue at once.
That’s why Martinez and Syndergaard signed one-year contracts, not multi-year contracts. This is because if Ohtani fails to recruit, he can sign with them again.
If Ohtani joins the Dodgers, the Dodgers will be perfect in pitching.
