The Dodgers’ interest, why is Swanson among the top 2 shortstops…”The player who stole the sign is not interested”

Dansby Swanson, who won the Gold Glove by beating Ha-seong Kim (San Diego Padres), was caught on the radar of the LA Dodgers. There’s another big-time shortstop on the free agent market, Carlos Correa, but his chances of heading to the Dodgers due to the 2017 sign-stealing scandal are virtually zero., the official homepage of Major League Baseball, reported on the 12th (Korean time), “The possibility of star shortstop Dansby Swanson going to the Los Angeles Dodgers is being raised.”

Swanson, along with Trey Turner, Zander Bogarts, and Correa, are classified as one of the “big four shortstops” in the major league free agent market. And to match his reputation, Turner signed a contract with the Philadelphia Phillies on the 6th for 11 years and a total of 300 million dollars (about 390 billion won), and two days later, Bogatz also signed with the San Diego Padres for 11 years and 280 million dollars (about 360 billion won). row was chosen. Now, there are only two left on the market, Swanson and Correa.

Born in 1994, Swanson is a shortstop star player who debuted in the big leagues with the Atlanta Braves in the 2016 season and played seven seasons. He won the World Series championship ring last year, and was selected as an All-Star for the 토토 first time in his life this year with a batting average of 2.7, 2.5 home runs, 96 RBIs and 18 stolen bases in 162 games. In addition, in early November, he beat Ha-seong Kim and Miguel Rojas (Miami Marlins) to win the first Gold Glove in his life and was recognized as the best shortstop in the National League. His career performance over seven seasons was 827 games, 2.5s, 775 hits, 102 home runs, and 411 RBIs.

Initially, the Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies showed interest in signing Swanson at the Major League Winter Meeting. Local media once predicted that Swanson’s move to the Cubs was likely. In the meantime, the ‘big hand’ Dodgers, who lost Turner, expressed their intention to participate in the recruitment war, and the competition is showing signs of overheating.

However, the Dodgers’ full-fledged movement has not yet been captured. said, “Even when Turner signed with Philadelphia, there was not much talk about the Dodgers signing Swanson. However, the Dodgers are not currently in a situation where they can rule out signing any free agent.”

On the contrary, there are also eyes that see Swanson’s possibility of going to the Dodgers as high. There are two shortstops left on the market, Swanson and Correa, and Correa is involved in a signing scandal in 2017 when he and the Dodgers met in the World Series, and the relationship with the Dodgers is not smooth.

CBS Sports said, “The Dodgers do not want to sign Correa for fear of a fan backlash related to the 2017 signing scandal.” Swanson’s wife plays for the Chicago Red Stars of the National Women’s Soccer League. Maybe he will go to the Cubs.”
