Player Notes

  • Plawecki had sinus surgery in December
    Kevin Plawecki underwent sinus surgery in December.

    Advice: Plawecki said that his right sinus was completely blocked, which led to dizziness last season, especially after flights. Doctors believe that they have solved the issue, which is a relief to the young backstop. He's expected to serve as the backup in 2016, but given Travis d'Arnaud's injury history, there's always the chance he'll play a bigger role. Plawecki, who turns 25 later this month, batted .219/.280/.296 with three home runs and 21 RBI over 73 games as a rookie. Rotoworld.com 55 minutes ago
  • Report: Ian Desmond a 'long shot' for Rays
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick writes that free agent shortstop Ian Desmond is a "long shot" for the Rays.

    Advice: There's been some chatter about the Rays being interested in Desmond, as he could be a bargain at this point of the winter, but the club doesn't want to give up a draft pick in order to sign him. There's always the chance that they could change their mind, but the 30-year-old appears likely to end up elsewhere. Many have pegged the White Sox as a logical fit for Desmond, but they are also reluctant to give up a pick. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:38 am

  • Donaldson's deal with Blue Jays worth $28.65M
    Josh Donaldson's new two-year deal with the Blue Jays is worth $28.65 million, according to the Associated Press.

    Advice: Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reported late Monday night that the two sides had agreed to a deal worth around $29 million, but now we have the exact number. Donaldson won his arbitration case against the Blue Jays last winter, but the two sides were able to avoid a hearing this time around. The 2015 AL MVP will still be under team control for one more year after this new deal expires. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:20 am
  • Royals, Salvador Perez still talking contract
    MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that the Royals are still talking to Salvador Perez about extending and redoing his contract.

    Advice: Talks have been going on for most of the winter, so it would be a surprise if something doesn't get done. Perez might have the most team-friendly contract in the game, as he's owed just $2 million in 2016 with three club options for 2017-2019 which max out at $14.75 million. An extension would increase the guarantee involved, but it's a tricky proposition for the Royals, as Perez's heavy workload could take its toll on him as he moves closer to his 30s.

  • Agent to watch Lincecum throw Wed.
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Tim Lincecum's agent, Rick Thurman, will watch his client throw on Wednesday.

    Advice: The two sides will then come up with a plan about when to hold a showcase for teams in Tempe, Arizona. Lincecum is making his way back from surgery last September to repair a torn labrum and impingement in his left hip. The Orioles, Marlins, and Rangers are among the clubs expected to be in attendance for his upcoming showcase. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:47 am
