The upcoming free agency of Juan Soto, one of baseball’s brightest young stars, is already generating significant buzz and speculation within the MLB community. Despite his walk year still being in its early stages, Soto has been unable to avoid future talks. Meanwhile, ESPN insider Buster Olney dropped a hot take on Soto’s probable suitors and stated that he expects the final showdown between the New York Yankees and New York Mets. Olney has heard from his sources that the Mets plan to make an aggressive run toward Soto’s next free agency. And the Yanks could surely remain in the mix to retain the superstar slugger. However, the monetary stakes are where things will get complicated for both the suitors.

Buster Olney said Scott Boras is aiming for a $500 million contract for Juan Soto to make him the most expensive position player. “While there might be other teams involved in the chase, all he really needs to push salary benchmarks is to be the object of a Yankees versus Mets bidding war,” said Olney. Notably, Yanks general manager Brian Cashman showed little faith in the front office’s retention plan as he publicly admitted having a feeling of Soto entering free agency next season. Besides, Captain Aaron Judge isn’t putting any effort into convincing Soto to stay as he feels the latter is a grown-up and will make the best decision for his family. Overall, Juan Soto’s free agency will end up being an interesting storyline for fans to follow next year as the generational star aims to rewrite off-season history books.
