A look into MLB Opening Day

The off season is almost over, and opening day is coming soon. On March 28, the 2019 MLB season will begin, and all 30 teams will be playing on the earliest opening day in the history of the MLB (besides international openers). Even though opening day is soon, there are still many free agents that are looking to be offered a contract. Some standout players on the list of free agents include Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel. On the other hand, there are some free agents that just recently signed during the off-season. For example, Manny Machado made a $300,000 deal for ten years with the San Diego Padres. This was the biggest free-agent contract in the history of American sports. Another recently signed free agent is Marwin Gonzalez. He made an agreement with the Minnesota Twins for a two year $210,000 deal. Bryce Harper signed a $330 million deal for 13 years with the Philadelphia Phillies, just recently as well. The other agents hope to be offered a contract soon.
