MLB Rumors: Predicting Where Each of the Top 25 MLB Free Agents Will Land

Free Agency is starting to get out of hand in sports, just like the transfer portal in college athletics.

As fans, we'd love to see the same players stick around on the same team throughout their careers. But we also must understand that sports are a business. It's not always the player's choice. Sometimes the money is better elsewhere.

With MLB Free Agency underway, it's time to look at where the top 25 players could be headed for the 2023 season.

Predicting The Destinations for the Top 25 MLB Players

1. Aaron Judge, OF, Signs With Yankees

Do you believe that Aaron Judge can repeat as MVP next season? If you do, you can bet on his MVP Future at DraftKings by Clicking Here!

2. Jacob deGrom, SP, Signs With Mets

There's no way the Yankees or Mets allow their franchise cornerstones to go elsewhere. I've got the Yankees retaining Judge while the Mets hold onto deGrom.

Neither ownership is cheap. They'll make it happen.

3. Carlos Correa, SS, Signs With Giants

If the Giants lose out on Aaron Judge, they'll go out and get Carlos Correa.

With the Twins last season, Correa hit 291 with 22 home runs and 25 more extra-base hits. He's also a terrific fielder, which won him a 2021 Platinum Glove award last season. He was already weary about joining the Twins last season. I don't think he'll return after watching his former team win the World Series this year.

4. Trea Turner, SS, Signs With Phillies

It sounds like Turner would rather be on the East Coast. He'd get to play with Bryce Harper again. They both had tremendous careers together in Washington and would play with each other again.

The Phillies have a solid core of players, some exciting young players, and a great starting pitching unit to lure someone like Turner onto their ball club.

5. Xander Bogaerts, SS, Signs With Twins

The Twins will be desperate for a shortstop with Correa gone. He's a four-time All-Star, and while his power dropped, playing in Minnesota will help him get his power back.

The Twins are always known for their power sluggers. But beyond his offense is his defense. He saved four runs last season and had the best defensive season of his career last year. He's going to end up with a solid contract. It'll probably be with the Twins.

6. Dansby Swanson, SS, Signs with Cubs

It sounds like the Chicago Cubs are fully invested in bringing Dansby Swanson onto the team. He's been inconsistent over his career, but he's hitting .265 with 62 home runs since 2019.

His power is real, and his glove is sensational. The Cubs are in a small rebuild and could use a guy like Swanson. He seems to always lead the Braves to the playoffs. Now the Cubs will hope he can do the same for them if he joins them.

7. Carlos Rodon, SP, Signs With Rangers

The Rangers are in the market for a starter. But if they're not going to be able to lure deGrom, they'll go after the next best starter. That's Carlos Rodon, who has been absolutely dominant over the last couple of seasons.

He's one of the best lefties in baseball and will earn a contract that replicates Robbie Ray. Ray won the Cy Young last season before signing a new contract.

8. Justin Verlander, SP, Signs With Astros

As of now, I think the Astros will bite on Verlander and give him Max Scherzer money. He's going to win the Cy Young this year, and while he wasn't perfect in the postseason, he still helped lead them into the postseason and make the World Series.

9. Brandon Nimmo, CF, Signs With Mets

The Mets' top priorities are Brandon Nimmo and Jacob deGrom. The Mets have the money to match for Nimmo. The question is whether they view Nimmo as worth as much as he'll get.

The Mariners, Giants, and Astros could also be in on Nimmo, including many more. But for now, it seems likely that he'll stay a New York Met.

10. Willson Contreras, C, Signs With Twins

If any team was embarrassed last season, it was the Twins. The Twins' had some injuries, sure, but they also underperformed at a very high rate.

Contreras is the number one offensive catcher. The Twins need production from a catcher on the offensive side of things. He'd be the perfect fit and a solid addition, along with Bogaerts.

11. Kodai Senga, SP, Signs With Mets

12. Josh Bell, 1B, Signs With Cubs

13. Chris Bassitt, SP, Signs With Twins

14. Jameson Taillon, SP, Signs With Orioles

15. Andrew Benintendi, OF, Signs With Blue Jays

16. Taijuan Walker, SP, Signs With Orioles

17. Sean Manaea, SP, Signs With Royals

18. Andrew Heaney, SP, Signs With Red Sox

19. Jameson Taillon, SP, Signs With Orioles

20. Andrew Benintendi, OF, Signs With Blue Jays

21. Mitch Haniger, OF, Signs With Mariners

22. Noah Syndergaard, SP, Signs With Giants

23. Nathan Eovaldi, SP, Signs With Red Sox

24. Christian Vazquez, C, Signs With Cardinals

25. Kenley Jensen, CP, Signs With Rangers
