As Scott Boras stood before a thrall of reporters at the annual Winter Meetings in San Diego, California, on Tuesday, he was peppered with questions about the top position player available in free agency this winter. Anthony Rendon, who’s represented by Boras, has been reportedly seeking a seven-year deal after rejecting one offered by the Nationals last fall.
According to the agent, multiple teams have offers on the table for exactly that.
“There are a number of teams that we’re talking with about Anthony and negotiations are current and active,” Boras said. “There’s been numerous offers made by many teams and Anthony’s just kind of evaluating it. We’re in the process of going back and forth with a lot of clubs.”
Boras said all the proposals Rendon is currently considering are for seven years. Washington reportedly offered him a deal between $210 million and $215 million at the end of last season. That number figures to be much lower than the offers Rendon has received as a free agent.
The Nationals just re-signed fellow free agent Stephen Strasburg to a seven-year, $245 million deal on Monday, but with $80 million deferred team president Mike Rizzo left the door open for Washington to bring back Rendon as well.
