Hernandez signs a one-year deal for four million
I believe he played some 3B for the Phillies way back then so can fill in there when they give up Kiebust.

Depending on what he gets paid though, he could be a good fit. His defense is meh at 3B, but his bat still plays well in LF and especially in CF. He is still relatively young. I'll take a .770-.800 OPS hitter in those spots. Hell, I'll take sucky defense at 3B with those numbers. It's not like Kieboom has done any of that and Kieboom plays worse defense at 3B.
But why tie yourself on a long term deal to a guy who may decline when you start to be competitive? Boras client.

His OPS+ the past two seasons is below his career average. He looked overmatched in SF. Was very bad in 2020.

Too bad there isn't a mechanism to rent out Soto for $50 million next year while we build things back up.

I’ve been wondering if it’s allowed for mlb teams to rent out prospects to non teams or vice versa if the npb team is out of contention.   Could be a cool development for baseball

Sueron will sign somewhere that can work with pitchers and be great next year.  Bank it

What says that Bryant is trending down?

Bryant looks fine: 25 homers, .835 OPS, and 124 OPS+ total last season. Hit .265. Nothing in his stats says he's trending down. Further, the Nats have nobody playing 3B, not in the majors or the minors.

A draft pick won’t arrive for a few years. It’s more a matter of seeing what the young guys have over the next couple of years and if they develop look for free agents after next season or later. Bryant seems to be trending in the wrong direction offensively. I’m not convinced Taylor will be as good in a lineup where he is one of the centerpiece guys. He got lots of good pitches to hit in LA due to their lineup. I don’t see why the team would want to sign either of these guys. I assume they will each get at least 4 years. Taylor is already 31.
