Blake Snell's second Cy Young Award-winning season should pay off in his bank account. The San Diego Padres left-hander is now an unrestricted free agent. Snell went 14-9 with a 2.25 ERA, the lowest mark in the majors. 

He allowed the most walks of any pitcher, but also the fewest hits per nine innings. It's the modern approach in MLB, and Snell did it better than anyone as he hit the open market. 

Spring Training is right around the corner, however, and Snell remains unsigned. 

Uncover the MLB odds for his potential next team for 2024. Bookies.com veteran oddsmaker Adam Thompson has scoped the landscape and updated his odds as to where Snell plays his home games for 2024.

Snell’s season was his best since 2018, when he went 21-8 with a 1.89 ERA in his first Cy Young season with the Rays. Since that year, he’s bounced from the mid-3’s to mid-4’s in ERA, and missed time in each season due to injury. 

In his two award-winning seasons, he started a legit 31 and 32 games. Durability may be the chief concern for teams.

This past year, Snell had it all working. Opposing batters hit under .100 against his curveball and under .150 vs. changeups and sliders. 

Snell will be 31 years old for next season. Surely the Padres want to keep their ace, and potentially keep him off a rival’s roster. But for the cost-cutting team, the asking price may be too steep. Projections have Snell commanding upwards of $120-140 million over 5-6 seasons. 

At this late stage of the off-season, Snell's demands have yet to come down enough. Only the New York Yankees have made an offer, and it was reportedly rescinded. 

SInce the Dodgers solidified their roration, the Yankees have become favorites to add Snell to the rotation, in part because few other franchises would be willing to shell out an additional $30 million annually with the 2024 MLB season about to begin. 

Snell’s agent is Scott Boras, who is notorious for not letting his clients sign for the second-best offer, heartstrings tugged or not. That damages the chances of the Seattle Mariners. Snell grew up just north of Seattle and has a strong interest in playing for the team he grew up rooting for. He supposedly wants to play for his hometown club "really bad."

Will Boras let his client sign for less than the market value? Can the Mariners step up from a financial standpoint?

The San Francisco Giants could still be buyers, especially on the pitching front, after finishing a disastrous 21 games behind the Dodgers in the NL West. They seek their first playoff berth since 2021 and could use another ace atop the rotation with Brandon Webb, especially in the pitcher-friendly Oracle Park. 

The Chicago Cubs were expected to become free agent players after Shohei Ohtani came off the market. Now that it's the case, the northsiders are in need for a major rotation upgrade. The same goes for the New York Mets and Boston Red Sox, who could lure Snell back to east. Each has a pressing need for a front-line starter and an insatiable want to return to the postseason. The teams finishsed 29 and 23 games out of the division lead, respectively. 

The Mets aimed to cut their payroll, but still rank No. 2 behind the Yankees for 2024 total player cost. 

The Los Angeles Angles have money to spend. They've shown real interested in Snell. L.A. isn't afraid of spending, and such a move keeps Snell in Southern California. 

Speaking of SoCarl, perhaps after all of this, Snell returns to San Diego. The Padres cut their payroll to just below the league average. A one-year deal to remain with the Padres isn't out of the question. 

If the price comes down, the St. Louis Cardinals, who have already added three new starting pitchers, could complete the overhaul with the top signing. The Cards have been linked to Snell and fellow free agent Jordan Montgomery. 

The Field includes teams that could use a left-handed ace and have the money to put in a serious bid but appear unlikely to do so at this late stage, including the Texas Rangers and Atlanta Braves.
