Trea Turner is using a little star-backed sizzle to help sell himself MLB teams.
The shortstop and his agents at CAA sent a sizzle reel narrated by Emmy Award winner Jon Hamm to teams on Monday. The reel is set shows a variety of footage from Turner’s time with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Additionally, Hamm provides commentary regarding why potential suitors should sign the versatile shortstop.
Trea. Vance. Turner. A true superstar in today’s game, this guy does it all. He can run. He can throw. He plays elite shortstop. He hits. He hits for power. Did I mention he hits for power?
“Since 2019 he’s been the second best position player in baseball according to fangraphs with a 20.1 fWAR,” Hamm says.
“Trea’s the only active shortstop with a lifetime career .300 plus batting average. The last shortstop to finish his career with a .300 average was Derek Jeter,” Hamm later adds.
Trea Turner will have a lot of suitors this offseason where he will likely command $300+ million and land a very lucrative contract.
