Dodgers Rumors: A Look At Trea Turner’s Top 8 Potential Destinations This Offseason

It still remains unclear whether Trea Turner will return in a Dodgers uniform next season. Turner has expressed interest in a return, but also remained open to the idea of going back to the east coast. 

To stir the pot some more, Aaron Judge has been linked with the Dodgers in recent weeks and a huge signing of Judge will inevitably leave Turner off the table for a huge payday. Turner could still decide to come back with a pay cut, but after another stellar season for Turner, teams will be lining up to sign the start shortstop for top dollar. 

The Dodgers still remain a top destination for Turner, but MLB.com came up with an intriguing list of other possible landing destinations. Among the most notable were the Phillies, Giants and Yankees. 

The Phillies are in the midst of a World Series appearance, but many expect the team to be aggressive during the off-season. Turner’s expressed interest of returning to the east coast and playing for a team with championship aspirations seems like a great fit all together. 

The Giants were one of the first teams to express interest in Turner amid rumors of him testing free agency. Despite Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford still having one year left on his contract, Turner could play second base for one year before moving to shortstop. 

The Yankees priority as of right now is to retain Judge, but if Judge were to leave it would create a lot of salary cap room to make a move. With the Dodgers possibly landing Judge, the Yankees can come right back and take Turner in a free agency trade of sorts. 

Rounding out the rest of the notable teams are the Orioles, Red Sox, Braves and Cubs. It remains to be seen where Turner’s heart lies, but it seems likely he will break the bank this off-season.

  1. Broken record here. If Judge is going to want a long-term contract (what’s the incentive for signing for three or four years when you are 30 and having to face free agency again at a time when you will NOT be coming off a walk year for the ages?) the Dodgers will not sign him. Plus, if the Dodgers are looking to improve their post season performance, signing someone who has a .211 batting average and .772 OPS in the postseason doesn’t sound like the way to go.

    • It’s obvious that pitching and SS are a priority and as one here mentioned,Judge’s PS isn’t much better than what most of this current roster has done. Dodgers presently don’t have the better options for SS IMHO. If possible I would like Trea to be re-signed, as he was part of one of the best top 3 hitters in anyone’s lineup. Hopefully he’ll agree to an extension, WSS.

  2. We do not an injury prone 31 year old who Ks 175-200 times a season. Dodgers are getting some aging on the team and should look to bringing up some the minor leaguers next season.

  3. Sign Trea and Arenado. Muncy can dh and play IF where applicable. And give Outman a shot, that kid can flat out rake.

    • Signing Trea and Arenado would be the Dodgers best move. If they non-tendered Bellinger ($17 million saved) and didn’t pick J. Turner’s $16 million option (sign him for a lessor amount, he’ll be 38) you have room to maybe go after Judge too!

    • I said it before, signing Trea and Arenado would be more a more dynamic roster w/ some of the new rules upcoming putting more emphasis on the offense from banning the shift and promoting the running game. The game will benefit a more athletic ball player and be an advantage in the postseason. With all the new rules upcoming, FO must rethink the roster to the changes to the game. Trea and Arenado have the combination of speed,contact, and power compared to a one dimensional player like Judge and JT.

  4. Stop the insanity already!!! Show Trea the $ and the dotted line. Why break up the best 1-2-3 top order in baseball?
