The destination of ‘Red Hair’ Justin Turner is expected to be decided soon.
MLB Network Insider John Morosi announced on his SNS on the 30th (Korea time), “Turner’s FA decision is likely to happen this week.”
“Big market teams such as the San Francisco Giants, New York Mets, Toronto Blue Jays, and Chicago Cubs are aiming for Turner,” Morosi added.월카지노
Turner showed last season that he can still be productive at a high level with the Boston Red Sox. He hit .276 with 23 homers and 96 RBIs in 146 games.
There were rumors that the Arizona Diamondbacks were aiming to recruit Turner as a designated hitter when they entered the FA market, but Arizona signed former LA Dodgers outfielder Jak Pederson instead of Turner.
Dodgers fans breathed a sigh of relief. Pederson also played for the Dodgers, but Turner couldn’t imagine wearing the Arizona uniform.
However, Turner is stunned when he hears that he can go to San Francisco, which is more “enemy” than Arizona.
“To Dodgers fans, it can be a pity to see Turner wearing the Diamondbacks uniform. But he will be even more hurt if he goes to the Giants,” Dodgers Nation said.
“Turner spent so long with the Dodgers that fans will feel it’s wrong to meet him in a San Francisco uniform,” he said, adding, “Dodgers fans will want Turner to sign a contract with a team other than the Giants.”
