So far in the MLB offseason, there have been countless major free agent signings.

While many of these make sense, there are a few that really surprise fans.

Here’s a look at the two most questionable signings in free agency so far this year.

2. Joey Gallo

In 2022, Joey Gallo really struggled.

These struggles were amplified by fans in New York, as his time with the Yankees was so unproductive.

However, things didn’t get much better when he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Between the two teams, he posted 0.2 WAR with a .160 batting average.

While he is expected to hit at a low average, his power numbers are also down to just 19 home runs.

This was enough to earn him an interesting one-year, $11 million contract with the Minnesota Twins.

It’s a questionable move because the Twins already have a lot of outfield depth, and Gallo is likely to take Max Kepler’s spot.

While Kepler also had a terrible 2022, he has shown flashes of being a star in the past.

For them, apparently turning on Kepler is amazing, especially since they’re doing it on Gallo.

1. Masataka Yoshida

The Boston Red Sox have had a very strange offseason.

They failed to re-sign star shortstop Xander Bogaerts, letting him go to go with the San Diego Padres.

Instead, they signed Japanese player Masataka Yoshida, a 29-year-old outfielder who is hitting .326 in seven seasons in Japan.

Following the signing, an ESPN report included quotes from rival teams that priced Yoshida at half the size of the contract.

Because of this, it seems like the Red Sox panicked and wanted to add something from this offseason.

However, the failure to bring back Bogaerts and extend Devers has been the most questionable move by the Red Sox thus far.
