It is the season for free agents in Major League Baseball. Many free agents are being rumored to be switching teams or signing back.

Now free agent Yoenis Cespedes is rumored to be signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers during the offseason. Many sought to sign Cespedes to their team including New York Yankees, Washington Nationals, San Francisco Giants and Houston Astros. Many are saying that he will be choosing the Dodgers.

It can be remembered that Cespedes became a free agent last year and opted out of his three-year contract with the Mets worth $75 Million.

Dodger Blue reported that the Dodgers contacted Cespedes about a possible acquisition. Should the Dodgers, or any club other than the Mets sign Cespedes, they will lose their top unprotected pick in the 2017 Draft due to his rejecting the qualifying offer.

Cespedes is considered among the top free agents in the league. He batted .280/.354/.530 with 25 doubles, 31 home runs, 86 RBI, a 133 OPS+ and career-best 9.4 percent walk rate over 132 games. Aside from that, he won a Silver Slugger Award.

We would have to wait for the contract signing before he can really confirm that he is going to be a Dodger, unlike Michael Martinez who is already outrighted utility man Michael Martinez as well as picking up outfielder Daniel Robertson to play for the minor league including a Spring Training invite.

According to MLB Trade Rumors, Martinez, 34, spent 2015 and part of 2016 in the Indians organization before heading to the Red Sox in a minor trade last July. He then headed back to the Indians in August on a waiver claim.

On the other hand, Robertson batted .287/.357/.412 for Triple-A Tacoma. The MLB trade season is slowly on the roll as free agents and players are now signing contracts and settling down on their teams. The final lineup will be announced soon and the only thing fans can do is wait for their players' final decision.
