REPORT: New Developments Emerge On Blake Snell & Matt Chapman As Race Could Come Down To 2 Cross-Country Rivals … Where Will They End Up??

As spring training kicks into high gear across Arizona and Florida, the biggest story is the fact that multiple big-name players remain unsigned. 

Everyone wants to know where Blake Snell, Matt Chapman and Jordan Montgomery will end up. 

According to reports, we could be getting our answer on all three within days, or possibly hours…

As far as Montgomery, Boston manager Alex Cora admitted to speaking to him recently about possibly joining the Red Sox. (Lord knows they need him, just for optics alone.)

As far as Snell, it’s not every day that you have a two-time Cy Young winner just sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. 

Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports that the New York Yankees are still very much “in” on Snell. However, despite ongoing discussions, progress has been slow. 

It goes without saying that if George Steinbrenner was still alive, Snell would be on the mound in Florida wearing pinstripes as you read this. 

However, with son Hal in charge, the Bombers are watching their bank account much, much closer (as is every owner it seems).

New Yankees slugger Juan Soto recently spoke out about how great it would be to bring Snell aboard and team him up with fellow Cy Young winner Gerrit Cole. 

Meanwhile, out on the west coast, the San Francisco Giants are also reported to be heavily in the mix for Snell as well. 

With key pitchers dealing with injuries, the Giants would love nothing more than to bring in the veteran. 

Snell would offer strong stability behind ace Logan Webb amidst all the questions they are currently dealing with.

San Francisco’s ambitions don’t stop there, however. According to reports, they are also interested in signing third baseman Matt Chapman.

As it stands right now, the Giants are certainly considered the favorites to sign Chapman. 

Meanwhile, the Snell and Montgomery races can end a few different ways…

The Yankees could certainly snatch up one of them. Meanwhile, the crosstown rival Mets are said to be lurking in the weeds on both, especially Montgomery.

How do you think it all ends up?

Where will Snell, Montgomery and Chapman sign???
