The Marlins improve by picking up a new third baseman, and the Yankees get a young arm.
MLB News and Rumors
The two sides have reportedly been discussing Troy Tulowitzki for a while, though a deal still seems unlikely.
An earlier report had Ross agreeing to a deal with the Padres, but that may not yet be the case.
There’s a back-up catcher going from the Padres to the Red Sox. Both teams were in on Ross, along with the Cubs.
Gotta love a Friday morning mystery. (UPDATE: As unbelievable as it is, Upton is going to the Padres.)
Peavy was the last of the second tier starters in free agency, and his deal makes Jason Hammel’s look great once again.
A couple young pitchers head to Oakland for catcher Derek Norris and a pitching prospect.
The Cubs are not listed as among the teams in on Jake Peavy at this time, which makes sense.
The two-time TJS recoveree gets a two year deal from the Royals.
A new report suggests a potentially serious medical issue is at the heart of the delay, which could cause big problems for the teams.
If not, he could find the market even more crowded next year – which may not matter to his NPB team.
Whew. That’s a lot of players. Wil Myers remains the biggest name, but there’s a lot to process here.
The Cubs have a wide variety of options for the left-handed side of the pen, but it’s not at all clear what route they’ll take.
This is going to be a pretty fun situation to follow, especially given the teams involved. And there could be more.
This could have a dramatic impact on the way Cuban players are brought into the United States and signed by MLB teams.
Myers, 24, is coming off a way down 2014, but still has huge potential. These Padres sure would like to make some noise.
