Pick 2. I think that is what happens


This off-season may be a fun one.

deGrom (34-R): 11 GS, 3.08, 0.76, 64.1 IP, 102 SO
Rodon (29-L): 31 GS, 2.88, 1.028, 178.0 IP, 237 SO
Perez (31-L): 32 GS, 2.89, 1.258, 196.1 IP, 169 SO

Thoughts?
deGrom (34-R): << $35M+ / 3 yrs?
Rodon (29-L): << $40M+ / 5 yrs?
Perez (31-L): << $20M+ / 3 yrs?

Perez should accept the QO. 2023 is a prove it year. Prove the success from 2022 is sustainable and earn the multi-year deal

De Grom to the Rangers at 4 years for $150 MM is all over the interwebs right now.

Only way I'd touch 4yrs/$150MM for deGrom is if the last year is a team option or there are no player opt-outs.

He'll be 35 years old during the 2023 season and has averaged less than 75 innings over the last 3 years.

It'll probably take that to get him, but he's the textbook example of "high risk-high reward".

I'd do the same money (per season) for 3 years, but I'm not sure that would get him.

That would be $37.5 per year (AAV). For reference, here are the top 5 paid pitchers in 2022, according to this site I got from a quick search:

At lot of those slots will be filled by prospects who are Rule 5 eligible. Doesn't necessarily mean the Rangers are going to go out & sign a bunch of players.

That's not as fun to talk about though. We can dream about signing DeGrom, Rodon and Judge

I would be surprised if we signed more than two FAs, especially if one is deGrom.

I would too, but then they spent a half billion dollars on two players so I'm not 100% on what they won't do anymore.

Interesting. The Rays would kill to have a park like ours .wonder if he'll be helping with their new stadium?

This should bode well for the Rangers.

Quick... get him on the line for some trades.

Rumors are that DeGrom is going to demand 40-45M/ year. That's too much money for an injury riddled pitcher. I'd rather sign Senga and Rodon. I think Senga has the stuff to be a top of the rotation pitcher for sure.

Nobody should pay that much for a pitcher that has thrown for an average of like 70 innings over the last three years.

I for one would absolutely have interest in bringing back Joey. Especially at a bargain. We need to upgrade our defense at first and Joey may be able do that and/ or give us some flexibility in the OF.

With the move away from the shift, his avg will go up. He'll still strike out a lot, but he won a gold glove in the OF, has pretty good speed for a big guy, obviously has elite power potential.

I've seen worse ideas. I'd look for him to take a one year deal from someone, hoping to have a much improved season with the shift rules in place, and then try to cash in on a bigger season after the 2023 season.

Looks like Rangers offered Perez a 2yr deal plus an Option for 2025.

They will likely offer a QO and he'll have 10 days to decide to accept.

I think this bodes well. If the market is higher than the Rangers offered, hopefully they'll have the opportunity to match.

They already gave Perez a QO, last Thursday

You are correct.

I got my dates mixed up. I was thinking they had until tomorrow.

It's hard to know how to feel on Perez. It would not surprise me whatsoever if he reverted back to the pitcher he's historically been next season. It's pretty rare that a guy in his 11th (I think) year turns the corner and figures it out.

With the QO I think I'm fine with whatever the outcome is. If he's back we'll see but getting a decent draft pick is also fine

Tweet from Jon Morosi (?)

Source: LHP Martin Prez is likely to accept the Rangers' Qualifying Offer by tomorrow's deadline, barring a change in his marketplace over the next 24 hours.

I agree. I like the guy, but to get a longer term pricey deal, I'd need to see him do it again.

Perez has earned $35M, thus far and is 31.224 years old.

If he really feels like Texas is home and 2022 was Perez reaching his potential, then accepting the QO and delivering another year sets him up for a 3+ year contract after this season.

If he faulters at $19.5M, teams will still pay him to pitch.

"if he really feels like Texas is home"

Why do we keep doing this to ourselves? If he really felt like Texas was home and really wanted to be in Texas then he would have signed an extension in the offseason.
