An MLB general manager reportedly said Jacob deGrom is seeking at least $40 million dollars in free agency, per Jon Heyman of the New York Post. Heyman later shared a quote from the unnamed GM in reference to deGrom’s free agency.

“He’ll get it, he’s the best.”

Jacob deGrom is arguably the best pitcher in baseball when healthy. The only concern for deGrom is health moving forward. And that would be the only negative factor for teams pursuing him in MLB free agency. In the end, teams will likely still take a chance on the right-hander, as his upside is immense.
