Player Notes

  • Steven Wright arrested on domestic assault
    Red Sox' right-hander Steven Wright was arrested Friday on charges of domestic assault.

    Advice: Wright was released from jail on Saturday. The knuckleballer was limited to just five starts in 2017 before undergoing left knee surgery in May. He had been expected to open the season as the club's fifth starter, though it's unclear if he'll face any disciplinary action. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:45 pm

  • Yanks planning Stanton press conference Mon.
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Yankees are planning a press conference to introduce Giancarlo Stanton on Monday.

    Advice: The trade sending Stanton to the Yankees for Starlin Castro and a couple prospects isn't official yet, but the slugger has reportedly already taken his physical and will officially don the pinstripes for the first time Monday. The Yankees are reportedly assuming $265 million of the $295 million owed to Stanton, who has an opt-out clause in his contract after the 2020 season. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:26 pm
  • Heyman: Cubs 'seem focused on' Alex Cobb
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Cubs "seem focused on" Alex Cobb to round out their rotation.

    Advice: The Cubs already added Tyler Chatwood, but they still have one rotation spot to fill with both Jake Arrieta and John Lackey expected to depart via free agency. New Cubs pitching coach Jim Hickey was Cobb's pitching coach with the Rays, so it's easy to see the connection here. The right-hander is also drawing interest from the Rangers, Yankees, Blue Jays and Orioles. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:38 am

  • 'Nothing going on' with Red Sox, Jose Abreu
    Rob Bradford of WEEI reports that there's "still nothing going on" regarding the Red Sox potentially pursuing Jose Abreu in a trade.

    Advice: Abreu has been connected to Boston as the Red Sox seek a power bat, but at this point he appears to be far down their priority list. With as many bats as there are available, it wouldn't make much sense for the Red Sox to trade top prospects in order to land Abreu. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:02 am
  • Cardinals have discussed Ozuna with Marlins
    Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals and Marlins have discussed Marcell Ozuna in trade talks.

    Advice: The Cards were unable to talk Giancarlo Stanton into waiving his no-trade clause, but they could still find the impact bat they're seeking with the Marlins in Ozuna or possibly Christian Yelich. Ozuna, 27, is coming off a monster season that saw him bat .312/.376/.548 with 37 home runs and 124 RBI. He has two more years of arbitration eligibility before reaching free agency.
