There’s no doubt that Shin Soo-Choo is one of the top free agent outfielders in the market right now, next to Carlos Beltran.
Both Beltran and Choo will be getting a lot of attention by multiple teams this Winter and could both see huge numbers being flashed in front of their faces.
The Cincinnati Reds may be out of the running for Choo, but nothing is official just yet. The Reds could still make a play for Choo to return, but according to Mike Puma on Twitter, Scott Boras is hoping whoever picks him up at least gives him around $90 million.
I don’t think Choo will have a problem getting that type of money elsewhere, but it looks like the Reds are looking to go all in for Jay Bruce.
The teams who could become front runners for the power hitting outfielder could be the New York Mets and New York Yankees.
The Mets expressed some serious interest in Choo before the regular season ended and of course the Yankees are always a top team to sign the best free agents on the market.
Another team who could swoop in under the radar could be the Chicago Cubs.
Boras is trying to push Choo as a $90 million player, according to a person who spoke to the agent.
