The MLB Network reported that the Tampa Bay Rays made 2020 NL MVP Freddie Freeman a contract offer prior to the lockout this offseason.
The network also added that the Yankees remain interested in Freeman, along that the Blue Jays and Dodgers could be fits as well.
Freeman, now 32-years-old, slashed .300/.393/.503 in 2021 with 31 home runs and 83 RBI.
Wherever the five-time All-Star ends up, he’ll certainly make an impact to the lineup fast.
Freeman was previously on an eight-year, $135,000,000 contract signed with the Braves in 2014 before declining an $18.4 million qualifying offer with them last November.
