The 2019 MLB off-season was a crazy and wild one. Multiple teams have benefited, but some teams have also suffered. Some of the top free agents signed with amazing teams while other free agents signed with unexpected teams. Super star pitcher Gerrit Cole was the biggest signing of the off season. He signed with the Yankees for nine years and 324 million dollars. The Yankees and Angels were the two teams that were in the running for Cole, but he eventually signed with the Yankees. Another top free agent, Anthony Rendon was signed to the Angels for 7 years and 245 million dollars. The Angels didn’t really need a third basemen, but it was a good signing anyway. There were also many smaller deals such as Mike Moustakas signing with the Reds for one year. Former Dodger pitcher Hyun Jin Ryu signed with the Blue Jays for 4 years, which was a surprise because no one thought the Blue Jays would go for a good pitcher. One of the more unsuccessful teams, the Chicago White Sox, signed multiple good players. You can tell that they are trying to rebuild their franchise. They signed catcher Yasmani Grandal, first basemen Edwin Encarnacion, starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel, reliever Steve Cishek, starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez, right fielder Nomar Mazara, and resigned Jose Abreu. The White Sox have rebuilt and are going for a playoff appearance. Overall, the 2019 off season was a eventful one, and the upcoming 2020 season is going to be a great one.
