Choo will be one of the top free agent outfielders expected to be available during the off-season. He has been a key contributor to the Cincinnati Reds lineup in 2013, batting .286/.424/.466 over 701 plate appearances.
Scott Boras is looking for a deal north of $100 million for his client, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. New York, however, is not expected to offer Choo a deal much larger than the contract Michael Bourn received from the Cleveland Indians: four years, $48 million.
That means Choo will not likely end up playing in Queens in 2014, since Boras will be looking for a deal larger than Bourn's. The San Francisco Giants, Texas Rangers and Chicago Cubs are all potential suitors for Choo, which could help drive the outfielder's price up.
