2020 wasn’t an ideal year for Odorizzi, as he hit the injured list three times due to a back strain, a chest contusion and a blister on his middle finger. That limited the right-hander to 13.2 innings of work. While the 2020 season will be fresh in many minds, let’s not forget that Odorizzi was the ace of the Twins in 2019. That year, Odorizzi (15-7) recorded a 3.51 ERA and 178 strikeouts over 159.0 innings of work. Not to mention the right-hander made the All-Star team and helped lead the Twins to their first  AL Central title since 2010.

What they might be able to do "going forward" would likely involve handing out a deal worth at least seven or eight years and hundreds of millions of dollars. And with Lindor set to hit free agency after the 2021 season, they have a large window to get it done.

Tomoyuki Sugano would’ve been New York’s best chance of rostering a solid pitching rotation in 2021. They’d have Cole and Sugano at the top of the rotation, while rounding it out with Luis Severino, Deivi Garcia and Jordan Montgomery. Oh well, they can always try to sign Sugano next year.

Is that a lot? It's exactly the same deal he would have been playing on in 2021. However, it’s almost double the one-year, $8M deal Morton was projected to receive, according to MLB Trade Rumors. It’s a sign the Braves aren’t messing around this winter as they look to acquire depth for another postseason run. The Braves previously signed left-handed starter Drew Smyly to a one-year, $11M deal.
