It’s March 16th and two of the biggest free agent pitchers on the market still haven’t signed. Dallas Keuchel is a former Cy Young award winner, a 2X all-star, and a 4X gold glover. Keuchel wasn’t the best starting pitcher on the market but he is solid number 3 in the rotation for any team. The other is Craig Kimbrel, a 7X all-star, 3X top reliever award winner, and one of the best relief pitchers in major league history. Why haven’t they signed, where will they sign, and when will they sign?
The 2019 MLB season is almost here and as accustomed, there are going to be predictions about who is going to win each major award at the end of the season. Last year, two right fielders won MVP’s almost unanimously, two sub 2 ERA pitchers won the Cy Young’s, and the Rookie of the Year races was tight from the beginning of the season. There are a plethora of candidates for every major award. I’ll give my main picks and sleeper picks for MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year.
