The time to make decisions in MLB is more latent than ever and, at least, Chris Taylor has already taken his as recent reports indicate that the Los Angeles Dodgers utility has rejected the team’s qualified offer for the 2022 season .
He’s officially in free agency. However, for the now former Dodgers player it will not be so easy as it will be released in the winter market on the condition that the team that signs it will have to deliver a selection from the next major league draft.
The MVP of the 2020 Championship Series and World Series joins a list of six other players who have decided to decline the offer to return to their respective teams for next season for $ 18.4 million, a group that he leads. Puerto Rican Carlos Correa, probably the most sought-after free agent this winter break.
Another of the players in that group is the Venezuelan Eduardo Rodríguez, who hours before signed a contract for five years and around $ 77 million with the Detroit Tigers.
Taylor hit 20 home runs and produced 73 runs in 148 games for the Dodgers last season.
He was called up to the All-Star Game for the first time in his eight-year Major League career and added another memorable feat to his playoff record with a three-homer game during the Championship Series. (https://www.septimaentrada.com)
