12/15:Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Gerrit Cole continues to be linked with the New York Yankees, and Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports confirms that the Pirates covet outfield prospect Clint Frazier. Cole posted a 4.26 ERA, 8.7 K/9 and 3.56 K/BB over 203 innings for Pittsburgh last season. One worrisome number, however, was a big spike in home runs allowed, as Cole’s 1.4 HR/9 was more than double his 0.6 career mark prior to last season. Frazier may be expendable with the Giancarlo Stanton trade. In 39 big league games in 2017, Frazier hit .231 withread more...
12/15:After signing relief pitcher Hector Rondon earlier in the day, the Houston Astros needed to clear a spot on their 40-man roster. It came at the expense of 27-year-old outfielder Preston Tucker. Tucker bounced between Triple-A and the big leagues from 2015-2016, but spent all of 2017 in Triple-A. In his big league career, he has hit .219 with 17 home runs and 41 RBI in 467 at-bats. There is a chance a team will claim him on waivers.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Houston Astros
12/15:Updating a previous report, relief pitcher Hector Rondon signed a two-year, $8.5 million deal with the Houston Astros on Friday, according to a source. The deal is official after he passed a physical. Although Rondon had a down year in 2017 with the Cubbies (4.24 ERA, 1.22 WHIP in 57 1/3 innings), he should bounce back and provide Houston with a valuable right-handed arm in the back end of the bullpen to help set up closer Ken Giles. Rondon won't have much fantasy relevance as a setup man, though.--Keith Hernandezread more...
12/15:There is no traction on a potential deal that would send Cleveland Indians second baseman/outfielder Jason Kipnis to the New York Mets, according to sources. In a career-low 90 games, Kipnis disappointed in 2017 with a .232/.291/.414 slash line with 12 home runs and 35 RBI for the Tribe. With better health, expect a rebound from Kipnis in 2018, no matter where he is playing.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Bergen Record - Matt Ehalt
12/15:Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that the Cincinnati Reds have spoken with free-agent reliever Craig Stammen. After spending 2016 in the Indians minor league system, the former National had a nice bounce-back season in 2017 with the San Diego Padres. In 60 games out of the bullpen, he had a 3.14 ERA in 80 1/3 innings.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Mark Sheldon
12/15:The Minnesota Twins are interested in free-agent first baseman Mike Napoli, and he has ties to general manager Thad Levine. Napoli hit a disappointing .193/.285/.428 in 2017 but did still manage to hit 29 homers and drive in 66 with the Rangers. If signed by Minnesota, he'd likely form some sort of platoon at first base with Joe Mauer. Given Napoli's poor numbers last year, it's hard to believe he'll land a full-time role with a team in 2018, severely limiting his fantasy appeal.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: read more...
12/15:Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado is "highly unlikely" to be traded Friday, according to a source, and it's also unlikely he's moved this weekend. With Baltimore unlikely to approach an extension for Machado, who is set to become a free agent after 2018, they are open to trading him. The power-hitting third baseman is of heavy interest to a handful of teams, and it looks like something could get done soon. Machado would prefer to move to his natural position of shortstop, too, which would further increase his already high fantasy value.--Keithread more...
12/15:The Washington Nationals think it's realistic to expect outfielder Bryce Harper to test free agency next winter after casual contract-extension talks last month didn't get very far. The Nats still hope to eventually re-sign Harper, but it'll obviously take a record-breaking contract to keep one of the best young players in the game around. If Harper hadn't injured his knee running to first base in 2017, he would have been firmly in the running for National League MVP.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: USA TODAY Sports - Bob Nightengale
12/15:Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports that free-agent shortstop Zack Cozart has signed a three-year deal worth $38 million with the Los Angeels Angels. The 32-year-old batted .297/.385/.548 with 24 home runs over 122 games with the Reds in 2017. It was his best offsensive season, but he is known more for his stellar defense. He is likely to play third base with Andrelton Simmons at shortstop. The Angels should be very strong defensively on the left side next season and continue to make big moves this offseason.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource:read more...
12/15:The Freddy Galvis deal to the San Diego Padres is a done deal. It was reported during the winter meetings that the Padres were looking for a shortstop, and they got their guy in Galvis. The Padres gave up minor league pitcher Enyel De Los Santos. Galvis is more known for his defense and hit .255 with 12 home runs and 14 stolen bases this past season. He has one year remaining on his contract. The move of Galvis to the Padres also opens up everyday playing time for prospect J.P. Crawford with the Phillies.read more...
12/15:Free-agent first baseman Carlos Santana signed a three-year, $60 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported the deal first, and it looks like the Phillies have moved on from Tommy Joseph. Santana is the first big name off of the board and his $20 AAV bodes well for Eric Hosmer. It appears that the Phillies may have set the market for free-agent first basemen very high. The Phillies beat out the Indians, Rockies, Rangers, Mariners and Padres for Santana's signature, and he will bring the team much neededread more...
12/15:The Philadelphia Phillies acquired minor league pitcher Enyel De Los Santos from the San Diego Padres in return for shortstop Freddy Galvis. De Los Santos came to the Padres in the Joaquin Benoit trade last year and spent all of the 2017 campaign in Double-A San Antonio. In 26 games, 24 of them starts, he went 10-6 with a 3.78 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP in 150 innings. It’s a nice get for the Phillies.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
12/15:Philadelphia Phillies shortstop J.P. Crawford appears to be a sure thing to be the Phillies Opening Day shortstop. With Freddy Galvis on his way to San Diego, the former top-five prospect has nothing stopping him from being the starter in Philadelphia. Crawford, who is Carl Crawford's cousin, played 23 games for the Phillies in 2017, batting .214 but posting a .356 on-base percentage because of his 16 walks in 87 plate appearances. A .243 hitter as a 22-year-old in Triple-A, Crawford may need a little bit more seasoning, but heread more...
12/15:Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis is nearing a deal that would send him to the San Diego Padres. Bleacher Report's Scott Miller first reported on the trade, but the deal was confirmed to be close by MLB.com's AJ Cassavell, who says that the Padres will send a minor league pitcher to Philadelphia. Jon Heyman first reported on Monday that the teams were interested in a deal, as the Phillies may be moving their eyes to the future. With shortstop prospect J.P. Crawford ready to take over, the Phillies were receiving trade offers on both Galvis and second baseman read more...
12/15:Free-agent relief pitcher Hector Rondon signed with the Houston Astros on Friday, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Rosenthal did not report on the terms of the deal, but the former Cubs pitcher will be a nice addition for the back end of Houston's bullpen. The former Rule 5 pick was 4-1 with a 4.24 ERA in 57 1/3 innings this past season but owns a career 3.22 ERA with 77 saves in five years, all with the Cubs. He was non-tendered by the Cubs earlier this month.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: read more...
