Marcus Stroman became one of the first dominos to fall in MLB free agency when choosing the Cubs just before the league imposed a lockout. And right away, he started using his Twitter account to try to get the attention of Carlos Correa — as well as other free agents around the league.
After the lockout was lifted, it was announced that free agency would officially begin at 7 p.m ET Thursday night.
Carlos Correa is bound to be highly-coveted, with the Cubs and Yankees currently favorites to land the superstar shortstop.
