With the offseason kicking into gear, we are going to run a series of polls asking about what you think the Texas Rangers should do in regards to various players on the free agent market. We have used Jon Heyman’s predictions in the past, but since he hasn’t been doing them lately, we will use the Fangraphs predictions instead, along with the predictions from Kiley McDaniel at ESPN.

Today, we are looking at infielder Justin Turner.

Turner, who turns 36 this month, played all over the infield while with the Mets (and in his very limited action with the Baltimore Orioles before the Orioles waived him and the Mets claimed him). In his first season with the Dodgers, he played primarily third base, but also got some at the other three infield positions his first season, then a handful of starts in his second season in L.A. Since 2016, however, he has only played third base or DH, save for 1 inning cameos at 1B and 2B. Turner’s defense at third base is still fine, and while he’s small (5’11”) for a first baseman, who could probably play there, as well, if you really wanted him to.

Fangraphs has Turner at 2 years, $26 million, while McDaniel has Turner at 2 years, $27 million (though Kiley acknowledges he could take less AAV or a one year deal to return to the Dodgers). I’m splitting the difference for this poll.

At 2 years, $26.5 million, would you want the Rangers to sign Justin Turner?
