With MLB free agency in full swing, there are a number of players looking for teams.

While there are some spots where players are most likely to land, there is always the chance that a dark horse team swoops in.

Here are two free agents that could sign with surprising teams this offseason.

 

2. Xander Bogaerts, Chicago Cubs

Throughout his career, Xander Bogaerts has quietly been one of the best shortstops in all of baseball.

He was the face of the Boston Red Sox, and now it appears that he’ll be taking his talents elsewhere.

While his name has been floated around with a variety of teams, the most interesting option are the Chicago Cubs.

The team really struggled last season and appear to be looking to add talent this offseason.

He is the perfect type of player for that organization, as his personality is one that Chicago fans can rally behind.

His signing would also give the team a bonafide star at the top of their order.

Because of all this, look for the Cubs to be a surprising landing place for the star shortstop.

 

1. Carlos Correa, Los Angeles Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers are never a surprising team for signing any free agents, but there are many reasons they may ink Carlos Correa to a major contract.

Correa just spent the past season missing the playoffs for first time since 2016.

There is no doubt that he is itching to get back to that stage.

This is especially true after he watched Jeremy Pena and the Houston Astros raise the Commissioners Trophy this season.

He may come back with a vengeance, and the best place to do so would be in Los Angeles.

The Dodgers need a shortstop and Correa needs a playoff trip.

It is a match made in heaven, and not one that has been talked about enough.
