Trea Turner Rumors: MLB Reporter Predicts What Team Will Land Star Shortstop During Winter Meetings

Free agent shortstop Trea Turner remains one of the top prizes of the off-season. Turner is expected to find a permanent home and will be making millions of dollars from whoever signs the 29-year-old. 

The question is, where will Turner sign? According to MLB reporter Mark Feinsand Turner could sign this week, depending on what happens with Aaron Judge.

“Considered by many to be the top free agent this side of Judge, Turner is one of four star shortstops on the market. His most aggressive suitor is believed to be the Phillies, who are not involved in the Judge sweepstakes, so Philadelphia could push to get Turner signed this week in order to move on to other business.”

Philadelphia remains the favorite to sign the speedy shortstop. BetOnline says the Phillies are +250 to sign Turner if he decides to leave Los Angeles. The Yankees and Giants are next on the list at +500. The St. Louis Cardinals follow at +550 odds. 

Even though the Phillies have the best odds to land Trea, that doesn’t mean Turner is sold on Philadephia, and again Judge could be the deciding factor. 

“If Turner isn’t sold on Philly as his destination, he might wait for Judge to sign and hope the runners-up panic and turn to him as an alternative. If Judge does sign at the Meetings, as many expect he will, Turner could very well be the next domino to fall, setting off a chain reaction within the shortstop market.” 

Many consider Turner as not only the best shortstop in this free-agent class but maybe the best shortstop in the entire league. 

Trea could be the one to cause a rippling effect for the free agent market, and that could happen this week during the Winter Meetings. 

The talks between Trea Turner and the Dodgers have been lukewarm at best. Don’t expect too much from the Dodgers regarding the two-time all-star.
