Juan Soto Destined To Hit Free Agency In 2025, Confirms MLB Insider

At just 25 years of age, Juan Soto has already established himself as a bona fide superstar in the league. His elite hitting ability has drawn comparisons to some of the game’s all-time greats. Since making his MLB debut with the Nationals in 2018, Soto earned several All-Star nods and garnered MVP consideration.

Meanwhile, for this season, Juan Soto signed with the New York Yankees. Soto was traded from Padres to Bronx on a one-year guarantee. Soto’s contract is expiring by the end of 2024 MLB season. And his future beyond that in Bronx remains up in the air. Amid this, an MLB insider made a startling claim that could sent waves of concerns amongst Yankee nation.

In a league where young talent often becomes the centerpiece of franchise building, Juan Soto‘s expiring contract is expected to shake up free agency this coming off-season. While Soto will don the pinstripes in 2024, his future beyond that in Bronx remains uncertain. When asked about his plan of signing an extension contract with the New York Yankees, Juan Soto refrained from weighing thoughts. However, MLB insider Ken Rosenthal firmly suggests the Yankee nation keep their expectations in check. On Foul Territory podcast, Ken said he expects Soto to enter free agency market in 2025 and do extremely well in terms of yielding hefty contract. Needless to say, the Yankee nation won’t be happy with assessment.

Juan Soto could possibly be the answer to New York Yankees long withstanding hitting woes. The slugger is mere 25 years and old. Thus, if the Bronx Bombers manages to sign him in a long term contract, Soto and Aaron Judge’s combination could attain unimaginable glory. However, Soto’s currently market value exceeds $500 million figure. Thus, it’s highly unlikely the Yanks could afford him next off-season. Nonetheless, Brian Cashman and Hal Steinbrenner would atleast try to put their best foot forward. If Juan loves playing in Bronx, the Bombers pursuit could get a big boost. But then again, meeting his salary expectations is a daunting task in itself. That being said, as the 2024 season approaches, all eyes will be on Juan Soto and his impending free agency. His decision will undoubtedly have far-reaching implications for the landscape of MLB.
