MLB Hot Stove: Scherzer, Seagar Find New Homes

Jonathan Grant | November 30th, 2021

Max Scherzer is going back to the National League East. Having spent portions of six seasons in the division with the Washington Nationals and then being traded mid-season in 2021 to the Los Angeles Dodgers, he is now going back ‘home.’ But home will be a bit different this time, as he will be donning a New York Mets uniform this time around.

That deal, according to sources, is said to be a three year deal worth $130 million. It’s a huge amount to splash on his at 37, and this deal makes him the oldest player in MLB history to get over $100 million in a deal. He is a three-time Cy Young winner, but there will be questions over whether his best days are behind him or not. The Mets have been super busy, but so, too, have the Texas Rangers. And they kept that up, signing, according to sources, Corey Seagar on a ten-year contract for a reported $325 million. Seagar joins the Rangers from the Dodgers and he could be with his new club until the age of 37 should he remain there throughout the contract’s length. He was the MVP of the NLCS in 2020 in the very same park, so there will be hopes that he can replicate that and help the Rangers end five years of losing baseball.
