AL East Team Targeting Jorge Soler In Free Agency

The Toronto Blue Jays have reportedly shown a strong interest in acquiring free agent slugger Jorge Soler.

As of early 2024, Soler, who will soon turn 32, has attracted attention from several Major League Baseball teams, including the Blue Jays.

This interest is part of a broader initiative by the Blue Jays to bolster their offensive lineup, which has been identified as a key area for improvement​.

Soler, known for his powerful hitting, had an impressive performance last year, hitting 36 home runs in 137 games while playing for the Miami Marlins.

His ability to generate significant offensive output has made him a highly sought-after player in the free agent market.

The Blue Jays, alongside other teams like the Seattle Mariners, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Boston Red Sox, are eyeing Soler as a potential addition to their rosters, with MLB sources and insiders confirming these teams' interest​​.

While some players in similar positions are speculated to sign extensive and high-value contracts, Soler is expected to land a more moderate three-year deal worth around $45 million.

This more conservative contract proposal positions him as a safer option for teams, including the Blue Jays, who are looking for reliable yet cost-effective solutions to enhance their team performance​. Photo Credit:  Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports
