Many free agent outfielders such as Aaron Judge, AJ Pollack, Mitch Haniger, and Andrew Benintendi have already found a new team. But the Texas Rangers, New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Colorado Rockies and Miami Marlins are still looking for an outfielder.
On the 9th (Korean time), ‘MLB Trade Rumors (MLBTR)’ published an article titled ‘The best remaining free agent players at each position’. In the article, Jurickson Profar was selected as the best seller for left and right fielders.

He played mainly as a leadoff last year and played in left field in all but six games as a designated hitter. Profar had a batting average of 0.243 with 15 homers, 58 RBIs and 82 runs for an OPS of 0.723.
‘MLBTR’ said, “Profar is currently 메이저놀이터 the best sale among the remaining outfielders. He picks up a lot of walks and has some power. He is a player who is not bad defensively, and he can help on ball, defense and state,” he explained.
Profar left San Diego with a $1 million buyout, waiving a $7.5 million option next year for a multi-year deal. With many teams weighing between the trade of Brian Reynolds (Pittsburgh Pirates) and the acquisition of Profar, a lot of attention is being paid to which team to go to.
