AL Notes: Lindor, Wheeler, Yanks, Twins
By Connor Byrne | December 4, 2019 at 12:17am CDTLet’s investigate the American League…
Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor is a conspicuous exchange up-and-comer, at any rate hypothetically. Be that as it may, as you’d expect, it will be incredibly hard to pry the hotshot out of Cleveland. The Indians would need to be “overpowered” by an idea so as to leave behind the 26- year-old four-time All-Star this offseason, Paul Hoynes of cleveland.com composes. Lindor has only two years of control left and doesn’t appear to probably sign an expansion, which means there’s a case the Indians ought to unequivocally consider exchanging him before next season. In any case, the lasting contenders clearly need to perceive how they passage leaving the entryway next season before choosing Lindor’s future, Hoynes recommends. On the off chance that that is the situation, we may not see a Lindor exchange until at any rate around next July’s exchange cutoff time.
Right-hander Zack Wheeler has gotten prominent on the open market, however it doesn’t show up the long-lasting Met will stick in New York. In spite of the fact that the Yankees have indicated enthusiasm for the hard-tossing Wheeler, they apparently aren’t willing to give him a nine-figure contract, Andy Martino of SNY tweets. Signs are indicating the 29- year-old Wheeler finding an agreement worth in any event $100MM, so if the Yankees would prefer not to go there, they’ll likely need to search somewhere else for beginning assistance.
Righty Matt Wisler, whom the Twins guaranteed off waivers from the Mariners in October, will make simply over $700K in 2020, per Darren Wolfson of 5 Eyewitness News. That resembles a fairly group well disposed sum for the out-of-choices Wisler, who had been anticipated to acquire $1MM next season. The 27- year-old Wisler, a previous top possibility, separated last season among Seattle and San Diego and logged a 5.61 ERA/4.23 FIP with extraordinary strikeout and walk paces of 11.05 and 2.81 crosswise over 51 1/3 innings.
