Two-time All-Star shortstop Trea Turner has been among the biggest names on the MLB free agent market as things play out around the baseball world.
Turner is coming off his first career 100-RBI season and is seen as a potential franchise cornerstone moving forward. He’s still in his prime at 29 years old. His ability to produce from the top of the lineup can’t be ignored, either.
It’s in this that Turner continues to be linked to some big-market teams, including his current Los Angeles Dodgers squad and a rival NL East team.
According to this note from MLB Network insider Joel Sherman, Turner to the Philadelphia Phillies is a real possibility.
“If you’re a betting man, I think the Phillies signing Turner has a good chance to happen,” Sherman’s report on Trea Turner’s potential landing spot.
Current Phillies starting middle infielders Didi Gregorius and Jean Segura are free agents. Meanwhile, two-time NL MVP Bryce Harper is slated to miss significant time next season after undergoing Tommy John Surgery.
