Trea Turner batted .298 in 2022 for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He belted 21 home runs while knocking in 100 runs and scoring 101 more. He even stole 27 bases. You’d be hard-pressed to find many more players as complete as the Dodgers shortstop. 

But he may not be the Dodgers shortstop in 2023. Turner is likely to command a massive contract and has indicated a fondness for the East Coast. It’s possible Turner might be the biggest offseason free agent signing this side of Aaron Judge. Not convinced? Take a look at this unique Trea Turner sizzle reel that had the internet buzzing. Trea Turner is about to get paid, but by which team?

Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson breaks down Turner’s top options and reveals his projected MLB odds on who Turner plays for in 2023.

Make no mistake, the Dodgers want to bring back Turner, who played in 160 games and led the league in at-bats. But they’re also admitting it’s not a done deal. The team has Gavin Lux, groomed to be an everyday player at SS, and has reportedly made plans to contact Carlos Correa, the impending free agent who played with the Twins

Turner deemed himself “an East Coast guy” but won’t limit himself to one region to get the best deal. That said, the two favorites both reside closer to the Atlantic. 

The Yankees make a lot of sense from a lot of angles. For one, nobody can outspend the Yankees. Secondly, the team is loaded at most positions, but shortstop isn’t one of them, despite trading for Isiah Kiner-Falefa last year. Turner fills a huge void for the pinstripes. The question is whether they can afford to re-sign Aaron Judge, their top offseason priority, and add Turner.

The Phillies have a need at SS and a hunger to get back to the World Series after losing in this year’s Fall Classic to the Houston Astros. The Phillies have a lot of key pieces to make it work; Turner could be the one that gives them that extra edge. Turner is also friends with Bryce Harper from their time together with the Nationals. 

The Mets are always looking to steal guys away from rivals. But with Francisco Lindor entrenched at short, someone would have to move in the field. New York has apparently had Turner in their sights for a while, with the idea of playing him at positions other than short

Another team with money to spend and a need at the spot are the Cubs, who aren’t on the East Coast but would make Turner the face of one of baseball’s marquee franchises. Apparently, the interest is mutual

The Field includes a few possible up-and-coming teams interested in making a splash, including the Seattle Mariners, Arizona Diamondbacks, and even the Baltimore Orioles, as well as the big-spending Boston Red Sox, who may need a replacement for infielder Xander Bogaerts, should he leave via free agency.
