The Philadelphia Phillies have reportedly jumped to the front of the pack to acquire a two-time All-Star and one of the top shortstops in MLB free agency.
Aside from opening day and the playoffs, this is a peak news period for the MLB. Free agency is always an exciting time of year and this class of available players is one of the best groups in recent memory.
Not only does this current MLB free agent class include American League MVP Aaron Judge and AL Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander, but the shortstop market is deep and star-studded.
Not one, not two, but four former or current All-Star shortstops are up for grabs. And it seems that World Series runners-up the Philadelphia Phillies have become a likely landing spot for one of those players.
