Report: Phillies Could Land a Top Shortstop By Wednesday
The Winter Meetings are in San Diego this coming week. That is often when the top free agents step to a podium with their agents to announce a big signing. The Phillies seem to be eager to make an announcement this week. That sense comes from what seems to be some homework already completed.
Jayson Stark of the Athletic seems to think the Phillies appear ready to make a move:
It isn’t known which order the club has scheduled those meetings. But indications are that they will sit down with both Scott Boras clients — Carlos Correa and Xander Bogaerts — this weekend.
Indications within the industry are that the team also would have sit-downs with Trea Turner and Dansby Swanson before the start of the Winter Meetings. It’s possible those player meetings have already taken place.
The 2022 Winter Meetings will conclude on Wednesday, December 7.
The Winter Meetings are often the premier convention of sorts for Major League Baseball. Agents, team executives, and even players themselves converge in one spot to do business. This figures to be a busy meeting.
