1/17:The Texas Rangers re-signed outfielder Josh Hamilton to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training Tuesday. Hamilton's injury-prone ways continued in 2016, as he missed the entire year after having surgery on his left knee. Saying he's a huge risk is an understatement after he played in just 139 games combined over the last three years. The veteran is hoping to win a job and split time as a designated hitter and outfield, but nothing is guaranteed. Hamilton might be worth a late-round dart throw in cavernous mixed or American League-only leagues, but probably not unlessread more...
1/16:Michael Saunders will be switching leagues to join the Philadelphia Phillies on a one-year deal worth $9 million. The deal includes a club option worth $11 million that could increase to as much as $14 million. Saunders parlayed a career year that came with an All-Star appearance into a significant pay raise. His environment will be quite different, going from a playoff team in Toronto to the rebuilding Phillies, who finished 20 games under .500. Saunders missed almost his entire first season in Toronto, playing just nine games in 2015. He had a huge first half in 2016,read more...
1/16:Free-agent outfielder Jose Bautista is close to re-signing with the Toronto Blue Jays, according to industry sources. Both sides are talking about a contract for two years and worth between $35-40 million. It was somewhat of a down season for Joey Bats in 2016, as he compiled a line of .234/.366/.452 in 116 games with 22 home runs and 69 RBI while going on the disabled list twice. Although he's 36, Bautista is still one of the more attractive sources of power in the early rounds, and a return to Rogers Centre would be best for his fantasyread more...
1/13:Wil Myers is reportedly on the verge of signing a contract extension for six years and upwards of $80 million. The deal is still unconfirmed, but if it comes to fruition it would be the richest contract in Padres history. It would also eliminate the need for arbitration entering the 2017 season. Myers represented San Diego as they hosted the All-Star game last season. He was one of the hottest hitters in the first half, hitting .286 with 19 HR, 60 RBI, and 15 SB in 87 games. He tailed off significantly in the second half, hitting justread more...
1/13:Tyson Ross signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Rangers on Friday, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. Ross missed all of last season after undergoing thoracic outlet surgery, and while there is no firm timetable for his return, the 29-year-old could potentially pay huge dividends if he can get back to the pitcher who posted a 3.26 ERA with the Padres in 2016. Even at his best, Ross tends to have trouble with the free pass, which could make him more of a liability when pitching in Arlington, especially since it's a pitcher-friendly park.--read more...
1/13:Free-agent outfielder Mark Trumbo recently turned down an offer from the Baltimore Orioles last November, but he's now willing to do a deal in the three-year, $40-50 million range, according to major league sources. The Texas Rangers are also interested, and they can accommodate him better at first base, his preferred position. There's no doubt that Trumbo is the biggest remaining free agent on the market after he led baseball with 47 dingers in 2016. Trumbo's power plays anywhere, but staying in Baltimore or going to Texas would be the best things for his fantasy value. He doesread more...
1/12:The Tampa Bay Rays added another outfielder Wednesday when they acquired Mallex Smith from the Seattle Mariners. Tampa also received left-hander Ryan Yarbrough and minor league shortstop Carlos Vargas. Drew Smyly was sent to the Mariners. Smith, mainly known for his speed (stole 56 bags in the minors in 2015), hit .238 with three home runs, 22 RBI and 16 steals in 72 games in his rookie season for Atlanta in 2016. Because Tampa's outfield is pretty crowded, especially after the Colby Rasmus signing this week, Smith figures to mainly come off the bench or occasionallyread more...
1/12:The Seattle Mariners acquired left-handed starter Drew Smyly from the Tampa Bay Rays and righty reliever Shae Simmons from the Atlanta Braves in a multi-team deal Wednesday. Seattle sent minor league pitchers Luiz Gohara and Thomas Burrows to the Braves. Smyly, 27, immediately slots into the M's rotation after going 7-12 with a 4.88 ERA and 167 K's in 175 1/3 innings. The knock on Smyly is his penchant for giving up fly balls, and thus homers (12.7 HR/FB rate in 2016). Moving to a more pitcher-friendly environment should help, though, making Smyly's dominance attractive as anread more...
1/12:Santiago Casilla is returning to his original team, as the veteran reliever has come to an agreement on a two-year deal with the Oakland A's. It is expected to be for $11 million with an additional $3 million in performance bonuses. Casilla has spent the previous seven seasons across the Bay with the Giants, and had served as the team's closer four out of the last five seasons. However, he seemed to run out of gas late last season and lost his closer job, finishing the season with a 3.57 ERA in 58 innings pitched and 31 savesread more...
1/10:Free-agent outfielder Colby Rasmus is close to agreeing to a one-year, $5 million deal with the Tampa Bay Rays, according to a major league source. The deal includes $2 million in incentives. Rasmus dealt with injuries and hit just .206 with 15 home runs and 54 RBI in 107 games for Houston in 2016. The lefty hitter is expected to play left field but can also back up in center field and serve as the designated hitter on occasion. His fantasy value doesn't change all that much with the move, but he's not a bad depth piece thatread more...
1/9:Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer has a stress fracture on the knuckle of his right ring finger, and he will no longer play for Team U.S.A in the World Baseball Classic this spring. However, the Nationals said their star pitcher is "expected to be a full participant" in spring training. Scherzer was 20-7 last year with a 2.96 ERA and a whopping 11.2 K/9. His injury is a bit of a concern, and we'll be keeping a closer eye on him this spring. But if he doesn't have any setbacks, he should yet again be an elite fantasyread more...
1/6:The Seattle Mariners acquired speedy outfielder Jarrod Dyson in exchange for starting pitcher Nathan Karns Friday. Seattle gains much-needed speed with the move, and the 32-year-old Dyson should see pretty regular playing time in an outfield absent much talent besides Leonys Martin in center field. Dyson has elite speed as he's reached the 30-steal mark in four of the last five years. He can struggle to reach base to use his speed, though, and he has only seven homers in seven seasons. Target Dyson in the later rounds of drafts for his theft potential. Karns tookread more...
1/6:Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, who has 10-and-5 no-trade rights, blocked a potential trade to the Atlanta Braves in November, according to a source. It's the third time that the veteran Phillips has blocked a trade with his no-trade rights. He has one year left on his current deal, and Cincinnati is trying to open up playing time for Jose Peraza at the keystone. Phillips, 35, has been one of the most consistent power-hitting second baseman over the course of his career. He hit .291 last year but had just 11 home runs, 64 RBI andread more...
1/6:The Seattle Mariners acquired starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for outfielder Seth Smith Friday. After going 6-8 with a 5.42 ERA in 23 starts for the O's in 2016, Gallardo should be assured of a rotation spot in his new home. Safeco Field is much friendlier to pitchers, but Gallardo's mediocre strikeout rate (6.48 K/9 last year) makes him nothing more than late-round pitching depth in deeper fantasy leagues. The 34-year-old Smith hit .249 with 16 home runs and 63 RBI in his second season with Seattle. He provides Baltimore with someread more...
1/4:The Oakland Athletics agreed to a one-year, $6 million deal with outfielder Rajai Davis Tuesday night. The move satisfies the A's need for a center fielder after they traded Billy Burns last season. With Cleveland in 2016, Davis hit .249 with 12 home runs, 48 RBI, 74 runs and a league-leading 43 stolen bases. Everyday playing time in Oakland will make Davis more attractive as a late middle round's source of speed, but don't expect him to reach double digits in the power column again with 2016 being the first time he's ever topped eight homers inread more...
