1/19:Free-agent infielder Eduardo Nunez (knee) worked out in front of Red Sox brass in the Dominican Republic this week, according to Chad Jennnings of the Boston Herald . Nunez battled a sore knee down the stretch last season, but it did not require surgery and he has been given a clean bill of health by doctors. The Red Sox could use him at second base while Dustin Pedroia recuperates from his knee injury. When Pedroia returns, Nunez could utilize his positional versatility to get regular playing time in a super-utility role. The Mets areread more...
1/19:Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani (elbow) missed the 2017 season, and Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports DeSclafani has recovered from his elbow injury and will be fully ready for action at the start of spring training. DeSclafani missed the entire 2017 season with a sprained UCL in his right elbow after opting for rehabilitation rather than Tommy John surgery. He could be a nice sleeper this year if he can return to the form that saw him register a 3.28 ERA through 20 starts in 2016. The Reds rotation was crushed by injuries last year butread more...
1/19:Free-agent outfielder J.D. Martinez received a lower than expected offer from the Boston Red Sox, but Red Sox chairman Tom Werner said the Red Sox are in active negotiations with Martinez. Speaking at the Red Sox's Winter Weekend, Werner said the team "will make moves" prior to the season. Boston is believed to have the best deal on the table for Martinez at five years, $125 million, per Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Pete Abraham on Twitter
1/19:Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Randal Grichuk, who was traded over from the Cardinals on Friday, is the leading candidate to see most of the playing time in right field in 2018, according to general manager Ross Atkins. Toronto likes his defense, so he could play all three outfield positions. It makes perfect sense with the Blue Jays moving on from free-agent oufielder Jose Bautista. With defensive stud Kevin Pillar cemented in center field, Grichuk will mainly be a candidate for the corner outfield spots. Grichuk has plenty of power (46read more...
1/19:Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado seems to have a new suitor, as MLB.com's Jon Morosi reports that the Cleveland Indians and Orioles discussed a potential trade last month. Morosi went on to say, though, that "the sides aren't actively discussing him now." He notes that "many in the industry" believe the Indians are open to trading starting pitcher Danny Salazar, and he would certainly seem like a fit with the pitching-starved Orioles. However, it is unclear whether Salazar was involved in talks and it does not appear the two clubs have been in touch lately. Machadoread more...
1/19:Toronto Blue Jays relief pitchers Dominic Leone and Conner Greene were acquired from the Blue Jays by the Cardinals for outfielder Randal Grichuk. Leone was a waiver claim by the Blue Jays last winter and went back and forth from the majors and minors a few times last season, but he was excellent with the big club, posting a 2.56 ERA and 81/23 K/BB ratio over 70 1/3 innings. He was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and should be pegged for a middle-relief role in St. Louis.--read more...
1/19:Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Randal Grichuk has been dealt to the Blue Jays for relief pitcher Dominic Leone and pitching prospect Connor Greene. Grichuk will now get everyday at-bats on his new team. The outfielder has always shown up in the power column, but has struggled to maintain the batting average most fantasy owners would like. This past season, Grichuk hit .238 with 22 home runs and 59 RBI. He makes for a solid power option in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.--Daniel Burdeenread more...
1/19:The Boston Red Sox are believed to have offered five years and roughly $125 million to free-agent outfielder J.D. Martinez, according to a source. It's around the same deal that oufielder Josh Hamilton received from the Angels five years ago. Martinez, who hit .303 with 45 home runs and 104 RBI in 119 games between the Tigers and Diamondbacks in 2017, is the top free-agent bat on the market, but the free-agent market has been unusually slow to develop, so Martinez may have to take a lot less than the $200 million heread more...
1/19:Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Fernando Rodney will open the season as the team's closer, a fact confirmed by manager Paul Molitor on Friday. The Twins officially signed Addison Reed earlier this week after agreeing to terms with Rodney last month, but the ninth inning belongs to Rodney. Reed is the better bet in 2018 and got a bigger contract than Rodney, but the Twins are probably best off giving the latter a clean frame in the ninth rather than using him as a setup man when he would often have to come inread more...
1/19:Texas Rangers infielder Joey Gallo has been working out in Las Vegas with Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, and Gallo says he sees something different in Harper this offseason. Gallo and Harper grew up together and played travel ball together. "At the workouts, he's as focused as I've ever seen him," Gallo said Thursday on MLB Network Radio. "He always is, but I mean, he's going through those workouts like nothing now. He's really focused, he's hitting and just the way he's talking, you can tell he's really prepared." Harper would've been aread more...
1/19:Free-agent starting pitcher Johan Santana said he is not officially retired from baseball and is considering a comeback. Santana had multiple surgeries on his left shoulder and hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2012. It's an extreme long shot that he makes it back if he decides to give it another shot.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: St. Paul Pioneer Press - Mike Berardino
1/19:San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Will Smith (elbow) will not be a full participant at the beginning of spring training. Smith had Tommy John surgery last March. The reliever is hoping to be ready come Opening Day, but he will be behind the other Giants pitchers when camp opens. Smith is under team control through 2019.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Hank Schulman on Twitter
1/19:San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Mark Melancon (forearm) will be a full participant at the beginning of spring training. Melancon had surgery in September to repair the pronator muscle in his right forearm, but he resumed throwing over a month ago and will enter spring training without any limitations. The veteran closer will be looking to bounce back in 2018 after posting a disappointing 4.50 ERA during an injury-shortened 2017.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Hank Schulman on Twitter
1/19:Free-agent outfielder Lorenzo Cain met with multiple teams in Los Angeles, according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN. The meeting was coordinated by his agents at All Bases Covered, but the teams in attendance were not reported. Cain has been on the radar of the Brewers, Giants, Cubs, Rangers and Blue Jays, while the Royals will still work to re-sign Cain if his price drops. Cain, 31, hit .300 with 15 home runs and 26 stolen bases over 155 games this past season.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Jerry Crasnick on Twitter
1/19:Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes (kidney) will not attend TwinsFest this weekend due to a bout with kidney stones. It is no doubt a painful situation for the right-hander but should not affect him for the start of spring training. The bigger issue is how Hughes comes back from a second thoracic outlet surgery, which he had last August. He is a major health question mark going into 2018.--Chris Zolli - RotoBallerSource: Mike Berardino on Twitter
