Atlanta Braves Max Fried is expected to join the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2025.
“Fried will sign with the Dodgers,” former Atlanta star Jeff Francore said on a recent “Foultory” podcast.
Fried will become an FA after this season. Ken Rosenthal predicted a month ago that if Atlanta does not sign Fried to extend his contract, he will certainly be on the FA market.
Fried, who is 30 this year, is expected to cost nearly $200 million if he signs a long-term contract.
Fried is likely to go to the Dodgers because he is from Los Angeles (Santa Monica). 라바카지노
Fried is also known to have a close relationship with Freddie Freeman, a teammate of the Dodgers. Freeman also signed a contract with the Dodgers in a surprise move when his contract with the Atlanta Braves failed.
Fried played just 14 games last season due to injury. He was 8-1 with a 2.55 ERA.
Fried, who played seven seasons in Atlanta alone, recorded a total of 62-26 with an ERA of 303. He will receive 15 million dollars this season.
If Fried joins the Dodgers, the Dodgers will have plenty of starting pitchers. Shosei Ohtani will take the mound, and Clayton Kershaw may continue to throw for the Dodgers along with Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Glasnow, Wauke Buehler, Tony Gonsolin, and Dustin May. Bobby Miller and Emmett-Shih are also targeting the starting pitcher position. The Dodgers is also reportedly targeting Rocky Sasaki of Japan.
If Fried is added, the Dodgers will have powerful pitchers from first to fifth starters.
