These Three Teams Could Go After World Series MVP Jorge Soler in Free Agency

Jorge Soler has got this "timing" thing down pat. He etched himself in the record books with a World Series to remember, just in time to hit free agency this fall. 

Soler became only the second-ever Cuban-born player to win the World Series MVP, and only the sixth player ever to hit 3 or more go-ahead home runs in the World Series (joining the likes of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig). 

Soler has a lot of swing-and-miss in his arsenal to go along with those monstrous HRs. Now which teams will take a chance on this "three true-outcomes" player? 
Here's a take on clubs looking for some big-time power and a DH or right-field position to fill.

1. Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers spent much of the season looking to beef up their offense. A couple of moves paid off in varying degrees; shortstop Willy Adames was a beast for the Brew Crew after they acquired him in May, and Rowdy Tellez became a fan favorite while hitting a few big home runs. 

But with constant injuries to their outfield, and a need for another big bat if the DH is instituted in the National League for 2022, Soler could fill a need. And it just so happens that he took apart Brewers pitching this season, hitting .333 with 3 HR in just 6 games against them. 

2. Detroit Tigers

This is the team that Soler has beaten up the most over his career. A .295 lifetime average, far above his career norm, and 15 HR in just 220 ABs. 

The Tigers have designs on competing next season, and spending some cash this offseason. Soler would bring a much-needed jolt in the power department. They finished 24th in the majors in HR and 22nd in Slugging %. Yes, they have a guy named Miguel Cabrera at DH most nights, but if they're willing to put up with Soler's defense in the outfield, they can certainly make use of his immense HR power. 

3. New York Mets

The Mets fancied themselves as a contender in 2021, but the offense was simply pathetic. They finished 25th in the majors in HR, and Slugging %. This is a team that is definitely in need of a power boost in the outfield. 

And now that Soler has demonstrated his propensity to perform when the lights are brightest, the big stage of the Big Apple should do him well. 

And then of course, don't put it past the Atlanta Braves to try to keep Soler around, as the status of outfielders Ronald Acuna Jr. and Marcel Ozuna—for very different reasons—is still unknown for the start of 2022. 
And after all, things went pretty well, you could say, for Soler in Atlanta.
