1/15:San Francisco Giants outfield prospect Bryan Reynolds will be headed to Pittsburgh in a deal that will send Andrew McCutchen to the Giants. Andrew Baggerly of The Athletic confirmed that Reynolds and pitching prospect Kyle Crick will head to Pittsburgh in the trade and is working on further details to see if money is involved. Reynolds, a second-round draft pick in 2016, had a .321 batting average for High-A San Jose in 2017 and has an .832 OPS in 177 minor league games. He figures to go to Double-A Altoona this season forread more...
1/15:Pittsburgh Pirates closer Felipe Rivero signed a four-year extension with the Pittsburgh Pirates, as first reported by Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Rivero's contract has two club options and the guarantee is believed to be about $22 million, according to Rosenthal. Rosenthal goes on to say that each club option is $10 million and that the deal will cover all four arbitration years and potentially two free agency years. This comes after fellow left-handed reliever Brad Hand signed on Saturday with the Padres, inking a three-year, $19.75 million contract with a club option for 2021. Rivero, 25,read more...
1/15:St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina plans to retire after the 2020 season. "Three more years, that's it," said Molina. He signed a three-year, $60 million extension that begins with the 2018 season, and if he sticks to his word, it'll be the last contract he signs. Molina is still a very effective backstop, putting up a 2017 line of .273/.312/.439. He'll be 38 when his contract runs out.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: Derrick Goold on Twitter
1/15:St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Luke Weaver has "bulked up" by adding about 15 pounds this offseason. Weaver is expected to take on a much larger role in the St. Louis starting rotation this season, so he made a plan to bulk up in order to keep him from wearing down later in the season. The young righty comes with some risk, but has nice upside in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: St. Louis Post-Dispatch
1/15:Pitching prospect Kyle Crick will head to the Pittsburgh Pirates as part of the Andrew McCutchen deal, according to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area. Crick, 25, was used as a starting pitcher before being moved to the bullpen in 2017. His numbers improved as a reliever for Triple-A Sacramento, and he even appeared in 30 games out of the Giants bullpen this past year. The right-hander struck out 28 batters in 32 1/3 innings while pitching to a 3.06 ERA. Crick is unlikely to hold much fantasy significance, as he willread more...
1/15:St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Tommy Pham has reportedly spent the offseason working on his speed. The outfielder's goal is to be a 30-30 player in 2018. He was successful in 25 of his 32 steal attempts last season but seems extremely motivated to reach 30 this time around. Pham is an excellent fantasy outfielder.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: mlb.com
1/15:New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said it is "more likely" that shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres will need extra time in the minors in 2018, and service time will not be in play when considering him for the opening day roster. There is a chance that Torres makes the opening day roster as the starting second baseman, but he'll really need to impress in spring training for that to happen. Between Double-A and Triple-A last year, Torres hit .287 with seven home runs, 34 RBI, seven steals and 31 runs scored in 55 games. Heread more...
1/15:Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that new Chicago Cubs hitting coach Chili Davis has been working weekly with Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward in Arizona since November. Davis is known for his line-drive approach with hitters and the hope is that he can help Heyward get back to his old ways. Davis mentions how Heyward has changed his approach throughout his career, and that could have had an effect on his current struggles. Heading into 2018, Heyward can be avoided in shallow leagues unless you want to take a chance with him very late in yourread more...
1/15:Updating a previous report, the Washington Nationals re-signed second baseman Howie Kendrick to a two-year, $7 million deal Monday, according to a source. The deal is pending a physical. Kendrick will return as a utility player for the Nats in 2018 after hitting .315/.368/.475 with nine home runs, 41 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 91 games between the Phillies and Nationals. The team could need Kendrick to serve as the starting second baseman to open the year if Daniel Murphy isn't ready. Kendrick is mainly useful for his average and high contactread more...
1/15:Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson (shoulder) is ahead of schedule in his rehab from shoulder surgery, and he plans to throw a baseball for the first time this Friday. He has been using a hyperbaric chamber to speed his recovery, and he spends around two hours a day in the tube. Nelson saw a breakout in 2017, but unfortunately for fantasy owners, he's expected to miss the start of the regular season this year, and there remains no current timetable for his return. But he's way ahead of schedule right now, and he should beread more...
1/15:First baseman/designated hitter Justin Morneau will retire Wednesday, according to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com. Bollinger adds that Morneau will join the Minnesota Twins as a special assistant. The four-time All-Star spent the bulk of his 14-year career with the Twins before spending two years with the Colorado Rockies and one season with the Chicago White Sox. The 2006 American League MVP finishes his career with a career .281 batting average with 247 home runs and 985 RBI.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Rhett Bollinger
1/15:The Baltimore Orioles are discussing Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Brandon Drury as a potential return for third baseman Manny Machado. The D-backs have become the most serious suitors for Machado, but there is no indication that the sides are close to a deal. Drury is under team control through 2022 and hit .271/.319/.448 in parts of three seasons with Arizona and had 37 doubles and 13 home runs in 135 games in 2017. Drury would be a super-utility player for Baltimore, having experience at second base, third base, shortstop, left field and right field.read more...
1/15:Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the San Francisco Giants can still look into free-agent outfielder Lorenzo Cain. The Giants acquired outfielder Andrew McCutchen earlier in the day, but the Giants have been looking to add two outfielders all offseason. Cain was given a qualifying offer by the Royals. Due to this, the Giants would have to give up draft compensation if they sign Cain. Multiple sources this offseason have reported that the Giants prefer not to sign a player who would require such a loss, but they are not 100 percent againstread more...
1/15:Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen was acquired by the San Francisco Giants, sources tell Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Jon Heyman and Robert Murray of FanRag Sports said that a trade was close between the two teams and minor league starting pitcher Kyle Crick, outfielder Bryan Reynolds, and $500,000 in international pool money will head to Pittsburgh in the trade. This is the second major trade for the Pirates in the last three days, as they sent starting pitcher Gerrit Cole to the Astros on Saturday. The 2013 National League MVP, McCutchen hadread more...
1/15:Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that free-agent infielder/outfielder Howie Kendrick is closing in on a deal with the Washington Nationals for two years and $7 million. Kendrick came over from the Philadelphia Phillies at the trade deadline this past season. The 34-year-old hit .315 over 91 games between Washington and Philadelphia in 2017. He’s a solid bench player in very deep leagues due to his average and positional versatility, but at-bats could be hard to come by unless an injury occurs.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Bob Nightengale
