Zachary D. RymerMLB Lead WriterOctober 16, 2016

At a measly .318, the average on-base percentage in Major League Baseball in 2013 was the lowest it had been since 1988. In an environment such as this, players who can get on base consistently are basically superheroes.

Shin-Soo Choo is such a player, so suffice it to say he couldn’t have picked a better time to test the free-agent waters for the first time this winter.

MLB Lead Writer Zachary D. Rymer is here with a breakdown of all the need-to-know information regarding Choo’s free agency. He’ll cover what sort of contract is in play for the lefty-swinging outfielder, why he’s deserving of such a contract and why some teams might not consider him deserving of such a contract. Lastly, Zachary will list some teams that might be interested.
