  • Tigers sign Eduardo Paredes to minors deal
    Tigers signed RHP Eduardo Paredes to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Paredes registered an ugly 6.87 ERA and 1.75 WHIP over 18 1/3 innings of relief with the Angels in 2018. The 23-year-old will try to turn things around in Detroit. His minor league numbers suggest he can be much better. Rotoworld.com 51 minutes ago

  • Tigers sign Chris Smith to minors contract
    Tigers signed RHP Chris Smith to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Smith spent the entire 2018 season with the Triple-A affiliate of the Nationals, posting a 3.93 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and 65/21 K/BB ratio in 55 innings. He'll probably get a look next year with the rebuilding Tigers. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:59 am

  • Mets select Braxton Lee in Rule 5 Draft
    Mets selected OF Braxton Lee from the Marlins in the minor league portion of the Rule 5 Draft.

    Advice: The Marlins talked up Lee as a future contributor last spring, but he posted a weak .233/.316/.294 batting line over three different levels of their minor league system in 2018 and went 3-for-17 (.176) over his first eight major league games. The 25-year-old will be organizational outfield depth for the Mets. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:06 am

  • Six teams in on J.T. Realmuto trade market
    According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, the J.T. Realmuto trade market is "essentially down to six teams: Reds, Mets, Rays, Braves, Dodgers, and Padres."

    Advice: There was an expectation that Realmuto would be traded at some point during this week's Winter Meetings, but that's not going to happen as teams are packing up and heading out of Las Vegas. The Marlins are still sifting through offers and trying to get multiple young players in return for the 27-year-old catcher. Realmuto batted .277/.340/.484 with 21 home runs and 74 RBI over 125 games this past season with Miami. He is under control through 2020. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:48 am

  • Dodgers have 'checked in on' Wilson Ramos
    Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers have "checked in on" free agent catcher Wilson Ramos.

    Advice: Castillo adds, however, that the Dodgers are only interested in discussing a one-year deal with Ramos at the moment. The 31-year-old should be able to find multi-year offers on the open market this winter after batting .306/.358/.487 with 15 homers and 70 RBI over 111 games between the Rays and Phillies in 2018. There's known to be interest from the Mets and Brewers. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:44 am

  • Edwin Encarnacion 'will be flipped' to Rays
    Scott Miller of Bleacher Report writes that Edwin Encarnacion "will be flipped" to the Rays.

    Advice: It should be noted that Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times is hearing there is no swap in place at the moment. Encarnacion was just dealt from the Indians to the Mariners in a three-team trade involving the Rays, but it sounds like he won't even get a chance to don a Seattle uniform -- just like Carlos Santana before him. The 35-year-old slugger batted .246/.336/.474 with 32 home runs and 107 RBI over 137 games with Cleveland in 2018. He's due $21.67 million in 2019. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:38 am
  • Brewers get lefty Alex Claudio from Rangers
    Brewers acquired LHP Alex Claudio from the Rangers for a competitive-balance Round A draft pick.

    Advice: That competitive-balance draft pick is expected to come in at No. 40 or No. 41 overall next June. Claudio had a rough season with the Rangers in 2018, but he put up a 2.66 ERA over his first 162 1/3 major league innings between 2014-2017 and he's held left-handed batters to a .194/.220/.278 slash line since breaking into the bigs. It's another big weapon for the already-stout Milwaukee bullpen. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:35 am
  • Indians pick up Jake Bauers from the Rays
    Indians acquired 1B/OF Jake Bauers from the Rays as part of a three-team trade.

    Advice: Bauers made his major league debut this past year at age 22 and batted .201/.316/.384 with 11 home runs, 48 RBI, and six stolen bases over his first 96 big-league games. He'll presumably play left field for the Indians, pending their other offseason moves, and could be of value in AL-only fantasy leagues. Bauers was ranked a top-70 prospect by multiple services leading into the 2018 campaign. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:25 am

  • Rays acquire Yandy Diaz in three-team trade
    Rays acquired 3B Yandy Diaz from the Indians as part of a three-team trade.

    Advice: Diaz is the centerpiece for Tampa Bay in this somewhat convoluted swap. The 27-year-old posted an impressive .312/.375/.422 batting line over 120 plate appearances with the Indians in 2018, though his defense at third base has been iffy at times and it's a little unclear at the moment how he fits into the Rays' plans for 2018. They probably have other moves in the works. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:19 am

  • Tribe get Carlos Santana in three-team deal
    Indians acquired 1B/DH Carlos Santana from the Mariners as part of a three-team trade.

    Advice: The Indians will send Edwin Encarnacion to Seattle and Yandy Diaz to Tampa Bay. There are other elements to this deal too. Santana is said to be thrilled about heading back to Cleveland after spending one year with the Phillies, who dealt him to the Mariners earlier this month as part of the Jean Segura trade. The 32-year-old played the first eight years of his career with the Tribe. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:14 am

  • Encarnacion to Mariners in three-team trade
    Mariners acquired DH Edwin Encarnacion and a compensatory Round B draft pick from the Indians as part of a three-team trade.

    Advice: Cleveland is getting Carlos Santana from Seattle and Jake Bauers from Tampa Bay. Yandy Diaz will go to the Rays along with minor league right-hander Cole Sulser. Seattle will receive the No. 77 overall selection in the 2019 MLB Draft, a competitive-balance pick, from the Tribe. It sounds like the Mariners are already working to flip Encarnacion, possibly to Tampa Bay. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:08 am
  • Brewers getting lefty Alex Claudio from TEX
    Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Brewers are getting lefty reliever Alex Claudio from the Rangers.

    Advice: Rosenthal says the Rangers will receive the Brewers' competitive-balance pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, which will come at No. 39 overall. Claudio struggled to a 4.48 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over 68 1/3 innings with Texas in 2018, but he registered a 2.66 ERA over his first 142 major league appearances between 2014-2017. The 26-year-old southpaw is under control through 2021. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:57 am
  • Report: Encarnacion to Mariners, not Rays
    MLB.com's Mark Feinsand hears that Edwin Encarnacion is not being dealt to the Rays.

    Advice: This refutes a report from Bob Nightengale of USA Today. The Indians, Mariners, and Rays are known to be working toward finalizing a three-team swap, but the full details have not been revealed yet. Initial reports had the Mariners getting Edwin Encarnacion from the Indians in exchange for Carlos Santana, with Cleveland also receiving Jake Bauers from the Rays. Yandy Diaz will reportedly head to Tampa Bay along with a player to be named later. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:55 am
  • Orioles acquire INF Jackson in Rule 5 draft
    Phillies selected INF Drew Jackson from the Dodgers with the 11th pick in the Rule 5 draft and traded him to the Orioles for international bonus dollars.

    Advice: Baltimore gets another middle-infield option after selecting Richie Martin with the first pick. Jackson hit .251/.356/.447 with 15 homers and 22 starts while splitting time between second and short in Double-A last season. He's a better bet than Martin to hit in the majors, but he probably faces more of an uphill battle to make the team. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:48 am

  • Report: Edwin Encarnacion now headed to TB
    According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, Edwin Encarnacion is now expected to go to the Rays.

    Advice: Encarnacion was reportedly headed to the Mariners as part of a three-team swap involving the Indians and Rays, but Seattle is apparently going to now flip him to Tampa Bay. The full details of this trade should be announced within the next hour. The Indians are said to be getting Carlos Santana from the Mariners and Jake Bauers from the Rays. Tampa Bay will apparently receive Encarnacion and Yandy Diaz. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:46 am
  • Royals acquire Rule 5 pick Ellis
    Rangers selected RHP Chris Ellis from the Cardinals with the seventh pick in the Rule 5 draft and traded him to the Royals.

    Advice: Ellis is joining his third organization, having been traded from the Angels to the Braves in the Andrelton Simmons deal and the Braves to the Cardinals for Jaime Garcia in 2016. He was 10-4 with a 3.93 ERA and a 124/37 K/BB ratio in 132 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A last season. The stuff is decent enough to maybe make him a fourth or fifth starter in the majors. He'll compete with fellow Rule 5 pick Sam McWilliams, among others, for a spot at the back of the Royals rotation. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:34 am

  • Encarnacion to SEA, Carlos Santana to CLE
    Fancred's Jon Heyman reports that Edwin Encarnacion has been traded to the Mariners as part of a three-team swap.

    Advice: Carlos Santana will head back to the Indians, along with Jake Bauers from the Rays. Tampa Bay is getting Yandy Diaz and a player to be named later. Joel Sherman of the New York Post says the rebuilding Mariners are also receiving a compensatory draft pick in this deal. An official announcement should be coming shortly.

  • Richie Martin to O's with top pick in Rule 5
    Orioles selected SS Richie Martin from the Athletics with the No. 1 overall pick in the Rule 5 Draft.

    Advice: Martin is known more for his defense than offense, but he posted a promising .300/.368/.439 batting line with six home runs and 25 stolen bases over 118 games this past season with the Double-A affiliate of the Athletics. Baltimore will have to carry the 23-year-old shortstop on its major league roster in order to keep him. He could potentially see regular playing time out of the gate with the rebuilding O's.

  • Reinsdorf has spoken to Boras about Harper
    According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf has spoken twice over the phone to Bryce Harper's agent Scott Boras.

    Advice: The White Sox and Phillies have been very public about their desire to land Harper (or Manny Machado) this winter, while other clubs seem to prefer a laying-in-the-weeds approach. We'll include the Dodgers, Yankees, Cardinals, and Cubs in that second group, and there has been plenty of chatter about mystery teams potentially emerging. There was no tangible movement on Harper or Machado during this week's Winter Meetings in Las Vegas. Nightengale writes that Harper "is expected to receive a deal that may eclipse $400 million."

  • PHI in pursuit of Andrew Miller, Zach Britton
    According to Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia, the Phillies are "very much in pursuit" of free agent relievers Andrew Miller and Zach Britton.

    Advice: The free agent relief market has officially fired up, with Joe Kelly and Jeurys Familia both agreeing to three-year deals overnight. Salisbury writes that Miller and Britton are "getting a lot of action from teams" and that the Phillies are "right in the thick of the chase." Miller battled injuries in 2018 and wound up with a poor 4.24 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 45/16 K/BB ratio over 34 innings with the Indians, but he ranked among the top relievers in baseball from 2013-2017.

  • Cardinals did not meet with Bryce Harper
    According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals were not one of the teams that met with Bryce Harper this week in Las Vegas.

    Advice: Harper undoubtedly has a very healthy market, but his agent Scott Boras told reporters at the Winter Meetings on Wednesday that teams are playing coy at the moment about their level of interest. As for the Cardinals being a possible bidder, Boras said, "They sit on the big bank of St. Louis" -- as in, they have money to spend. Phillies GM Matt Klentak is known to have met with Boras and Harper this week, along with the agent for Manny Machado. It could be a while before those two sign. There's a lot of time for the picture to change. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:00 pm

  • Rays interested in Marlins' Realmuto
    Despite having acquired Mike Zunino, the Rays have looked into acquiring J.T. Realmuto from the Marlins.

    Advice: It seems like a long shot. The Rays could move Austin Meadows as a key piece of a Realmuto deal, but that would have been a lot easier had they not already traded Mallex Smith for Zunino. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:52 pm

  • Reds have 'jumped into' J.T. Realmuto talks
    Craig Mish of SiriusXM reports that the Reds have "jumped into" the J.T. Realmuto trade market.

    Advice: Mish further notes that Cincinnati "could be moving up into the candidates to acquire" the 27-year-old catcher from the Marlins. The package would reportedly be highlighted by top outfield prospect Taylor Trammell and a catcher, possibly Tucker Barnhart. The Mets want Realmuto badly and the Phillies and Braves are also believed to be involved, but it seems those clubs are having trouble putting together offers that are to Miami's liking.

  • Mets looking at catcher beyond Realmuto
    Fancred's Jon Heyman reports that the Mets are looking harder at catching alternatives after failing to make progress on a J.T. Realmuto trade.

    Advice: Amed Rosario appears to be a dealbreaker for a Realmuto trade between the Marlins and Mets. The Mets could move on to either Yasmani Grandal or Wilson Ramos. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:44 am

  • Rays, Indians, Rockies interested in Santana
    Corey Brock of The Athletic confirms that the Mariners have talked with the Rays, Indians, and Rockies about a potential Carlos Santana trade.

    Advice: The Mariners acquired Santana from the Phillies earlier this month as part of the Jean Segura trade, but it'd be a surprise if he suits up in a Seattle uniform in 2019. The club has launched into an aggressive organizational rebuild, and Santana is due $35 million guaranteed over the next two seasons. The 32-year-old slugger batted .229/.352/.414 with 24 home runs and 86 RBI over 161 games with Philadelphia in 2018. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:56 pm

  • Phillies involved in JT Realmuto trade talks
    Jon Morosi of MLB.com confirms that the Phillies are "involved" in the J.T. Realmuto trade talks.

    Advice: The Mets have seemed to be the most aggressive bidder for Realmuto up to this point, but it sounds like they're having trouble figuring out a package that satisfies the Marlins. They've even attempted a three-team trade that would involve the Yankees, though recent reports have suggested those talks are dead. Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald wrote Tuesday morning that a Realmuto trade will "most likely" happen at some point this week. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:44 pm

  • Report: Mets 'very aggressive' on Realmuto
    Jon Heyman of FanCred Sports hears that the Mets are being "very aggressive" on Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto.

    Advice: According to Heyman, the debate internally with the Mets is whether to part with young shortstop Amed Rosario or Noah Syndergaard in order to make a deal happen. Syndergaard has been mentioned as a possible piece of a three-way trade involving the Yankees. The Mets were reportedly reluctant to include Rosario, but it seems that they could be willing to budge here. If they do, there's a good chance this could be done in a straight trade and they'll keep Syndergaard. It wouldn't be ideal to lose someone with Rosario's potential, but the thought is that they could turn to a defensive-minded replacement at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:29 pm

  • Brewers, Wilson Ramos reportedly met on Mon.
    According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, the Brewers had a "very good" meeting with free agent catcher Wilson Ramos on Monday.

    Advice: Ramos is on hand at the Winter Meetings in Las Vegas and is set to meet with other teams, including the Mets. As of now, the Brewers are looking at a combination of Manny Pina, Erik Kratz, and Jacob Nottingham behind the plate, so this makes for a potentially strong fit. Ramos has an injury history, but there's no question about his ability to produce offensively. The 31-year-old batted .306/.358/.487 with 15 homers and 70 RBI over 111 games this past season between the Rays and Phillies. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:14 am

  • Report: Marlins like Padres' prospects
    According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Marlins told the Padres that they have the "prospect inventory" to acquire catcher J.T. Realmuto.

    Advice: The catch is that the Marlins haven't told the Padres what the package of players would need to be. The Padres would almost certainly want to hang on to top prospect Fernando Tatis, Jr., but they have plenty of really good prospects and young players beyond that. They could be a darkhorse here.

  • Marlins, Mariners talked Carlos Santana
    Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Marlins talked to the Mariners about Carlos Santana last week.

    Advice: Most of the attention is focused on J.T. Realmuto right now, but Rosenthal hears that the club is looking at mid-tier free-agent hitters and relievers. The interest in Santana suggest that they are also exploring trade possibilities. Santana was just swapped from the Phillies to the Mariners last week in the Jean Segura deal. One possible complication, with the Marlins or anyone else, is that the 32-year-old is guaranteed $35 million over the next two seasons when there are comparable players out there in free agency who will likely be available for much less. Offsetting bad contracts could make it easier. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:52 am

  • Mets working 'both angles' on Realmuto
    Jon Heyman of FanCred Sports hears that the Mets are "working both angles" to acquire J.T. Realmuto from the Marlins.

    Advice: In other words, they are talking both a straight trade with the Marlins and a three-team deal which would send Noah Syndergaard to the Yankees. It has been a challenge to get traction on a straight trade, as the Marlins have been trying to pry away the likes of Amed Rosario and Michael Conforto, hence the talks of a three-way deal. A straight trade could become more realistic if the Marlins lower their asking price, but that would likely get some other teams back in the mix. One thing we know for sure is that the Mets really want Realmuto. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:27 am

  • Realmuto 'most likely' dealt this week
    Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald writes that a J.T. Realmuto trade will "most likely" happen this week.

    Advice: It's basically a foregone conclusion that Realmuto will be traded, but talks seem to be accelerating to the point where something could get done soon. The Mets have been the most aggressive, though they are reportedly shy about a potential return package, as the Marlins have asked about Michael Conforto, Amed Rosario, and Brandon Nimmo. This fits in with Miami's need for a young and established MLB player as part of a package, which is why the Yankees (who have Miguel Andujar) to dangle have reportedly entered the mix in talks of a three-way deal which would send Noah Syndergaard to the Bronx. It's unclear which other teams could be talking to the Marlins about Realmuto, but it looks like we could be in for a wild couple of days. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:29 am

  • Report: Marlins now pushing on Realmuto trade
    Buster Olney of ESPN.com writes that the sense among some other teams is that the Marlins have begun to push for a J.T. Realmuto trade.

    Advice: It's no surprise that the Marlins are talking trade, but there is a difference in their stance here compared to the past. As Olney describes it, the Marlins previously set a very high bar in regard to the asking price and challenged teams to meet it, but now they are being more aggressive in trying to actually make a deal. According to Joe Frisaro, the Mets are one of three teams involved in trade talks for Realmuto, though the much-hyped three-way trade involving the Yankees is seen as a long shot possibility. The identity of the other two teams isn't yet known. Either way, momentum continues to build at the Winter Meetings in Vegas. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:51 am

  • Rockies had interest in Carlos Santana
    Nick Groke of The Athletic reports that the Rockies had trade talks with the Phillies about Carlos Santana before Santana was traded to the Mariners.

    Advice: The Mariners are rebuilding and open to flipping Santana to another team, so it's possible the Rockies could still be a fit for the first baseman. Obviously, it would be a boon to Santana's fantasy value should he land in Colorado. Ian Desmond currently is lined up to play first base for the Rockies, but it sounds like they want to add a first baseman and use Desmond in the outfield. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:08 pm

  • Phils to meet with agents of Harper, Machado
    Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said Monday that he plans to meet with the agents for both Bryce Harper and Manny Machado this week.

    Advice: It's no surprise, of course, as the Phillies have been one of the few teams consistently connected to both players this offseason. There is industry-wide speculation that they will sign at least one of them, as Philly hasn't hid the fact that they plan on spending big this winter. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:35 pm

    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman indicated on Monday that the team would not be players for Bryce Harper.

    Advice: "The Harper stuff, I’m surprised you’re still asking," Cashman said before rattling off the names of six outfielders projected to possibly make the Yankees' Opening Day roster. The GM also ruled out the possibility of Harper being a fit for the Yanks at first base, saying it wasn't realistic. We can't ever rule out the Yankees when it comes to a big-name free agent, but all signs so far have pointed to them not pursuing Harper. They are, however, in on Manny Machado, which Cashman confirmed. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:54 pm

  • Rays interested in Encarnacion, Diaz
    Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Rays have interest in Edwin Encarnacion and Yandy Diaz.

    Advice: The Indians are looking to unload some payroll, so it's not a surprise that they're willing to part with Encarnacion and the $25 million he's owed between his 2019 salary and 2020 buyout. They'd probably have to eat some of his contract in order to move him, especially to a low-payroll team like the Rays. Diaz won't be arbitration-eligible for a couple years and is thus much cheaper. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:40 pm
  • Report: Mets still interested in LHP Miller
    Andy Martino of MLB.com reports that the Mets "continue to see" reliever Andrew Miller as a fit.

    Advice: They aren't alone in that line of thinking, as the Phillies, Cardinals, and Red Sox have also reportedly expressed interest. The Mets just added Edwin Diaz in a trade with the Mariners, but Miller would give them quite the one-two punch in the late innings, at least if he's fully healthy. The 33-year-old missed time with knee, hamstring, and shoulder injuries this past season while posting a mediocre 4.24 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 45/16 K/BB ratio in 34 innings. There's obviously huge upside if he can stay on the field in 2019. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:07 am

  • Nats owner on Harper: 'Don't expect him' back
    Nationals owner Mark Lerner said in an interview on 106.7 FM The Fan on Friday of Bryce Harper that "I really don't expect him to come back at this point."

    Advice: Lerner said that when the team made Harper the reported 10-year, $300 million offer on the last day of the regular season, "we told them, 'This is the best we can do.'" He added that that offer "very well may be" off the table at this point after the additions they've made since then and ones they still plan to make. General manager Mike Rizzo indicated earlier Friday that the Patrick Corbin signing didn't necessarily rule the club out for re-signing Harper, but the writing is on the wall at this point.

  • Rizzo: Corbin signing 'independent' of Harper
    Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said Friday that the pursuit of Bryce Harper is "independent" of the signing of Patrick Corbin.

    Advice: Some naturally assumed that the Nats giving Corbin a $140 million contract could rule them out of the Harper derby, but Rizzo, at least publicly, is implying that they're unrelated. We wouldn't necessarily expect him to say anything else, of course, and the reality is that Harper's market might have to fall short of where it's expected to go for Washington to really be in the mix. The Nationals reportedly offered the superstar a 10-year, $300 million contract at the end of the regular season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:48 am

    According to Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com, the Cardinals are not among the teams that are targeting free agent superstar Bryce Harper, despite their financial flexibility.

    Advice: The Cardinals have always been mentioned as a team to watch in the Harper sweepstakes, but they landed a different big bat for the middle of their lineup by acquiring Paul Goldschmidt from the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. While anything is still possible, it doesn't sound like they'll be a major player for Harper.

  • SEA talking to teams about Carlos Santana
    According to Jayson Stark of The Athletic, the Mariners have "already had conversations with multiple teams" about a Carlos Santana trade.

    Advice: No real surprise. Santana's inclusion in the Jean Segura trade was all about money, and the Mariners have launched into an aggressive organizational rebuild this winter in which the goal is to shed cash commitments and stock young talent. The 32-year-old slugger is owed around $41.7 million on a contract that runs through 2020. He batted .229/.352/.414 with 24 home runs and 86 RBI over 161 games this past season with the Phillies.

    According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, officials from the Dodgers, White Sox, Phillies, and Yankees are "among upward of a dozen teams that have traveled or plan to travel" to Nevada to meet with free agent slugger Bryce Harper.

    Advice: Business is about to pick up. The Dodgers made a recent trip to Vegas while the White Sox included Hall of Famer Jim Thome on their visit. While Harper is likely to land a contract in the area of 10 years and $350 million, there's no shortage of teams who plan to at least have a meeting. Passan writes that the Cubs and Padres are expected to check in and names the Astros and Cardinals as possible teams to watch. The Yankees are the big wild card in the mix and a return to the Nationals can't be ruled out. With the Winter Meetings set to begin Sunday in Las Vegas, Harper's backyard, we should soon get a better sense of his market. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:52 am

  • Mariners land Carlos Santana
    Mariners acquired 1B Carlos Santana and SS J.P. Crawford from the Phillies for SS Jean Segura, RHP Juan Nicasio and LHP James Pazos.

    Advice: Santana was decent in his lone season in Philadelphia with a .229/.352/.414 batting line and 24 home runs, but the Phillies wanted to unload him due to their desire to move Rhys Hoskins back to first base. If he's still on Seattle's roster on Opening Day, Santana should play some first base and also serve as a designated hitter. They'll surely be shopping him, though. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:37 pm
