The Texas Rangers intend to become a dynasty in the Major Leagues, shielding their bullpen in the best possible way with the best closer of the moment, Josh Hader.
MLB Network’s Jon Morosi revealed that the World Series champions will negotiate with Hader, who after a great season with the San Diego Padres has a market value of $17.5 million per season.
Hader had a 1.28 ERA with 85 strikeouts, 30 walks and a 1.01 WHIP in 56.1 innings of work with the Padres last season, in addition to collecting 33 saves. Many analysts project that he could become the highest-paid closer in history because of his status and being a free agent at the prime of his career.
The Spotrac portal predicts that Hader could receive an offer of 5 years and around 87 million dollars in the market, ensuring he will be in a competitive club in the next five years.
The Philadelphia Phillies, Padres and New York Yankees are some of the teams that will fight to tie down Hader, a left-hander who in seven seasons in the majors has been invited to the All-Star Game five times and has won the Reliever award three times. of the Year in the National League.
