Scouting Report. Third Base. Anthony Rendon. 90. Pick Analysis. Age: 29. 2. player

I have top MLB free agents Anthony Rendon joining Stephen Strasburg back with their original team, the Washington Nationals. I actually think the Nationals are going to want Rendon back this winter more than they did with Bryce Harper.

Of course, Rendon was a huge part of the Nationals 2019 season, especially after his 19-31 start. I get that Cody Bellinger won the MVP I believe Rendon was the most valuable to his team because if he hadn’t performed to the level he did, they would not be the reigning champions right now.

Harper isn’t as much of a complete player as Rendon is, and I think it is going to be a little easier for owners to give their stars the contracts they deserve, mirroring what the Red Sox did after they won their championship back in 2018.

As I touched on earlier, while the Texas Rangers might be a good fit for Anthony Rendon, he is going to command too much money for Jon Daniels to grant him.

Rendon has made it clear that he wants to stay in the nation’s capital despite rejecting the initial offer of $210-215 million that was reported during the 2019 season. He has made two counteroffers to ownership but it hasn’t exactly matched up, but that doesn’t mean both sides won’t this winter.
