The newly retired Nelson Cruz is signing on with the Dodgers organization as an advisor.
Advice: Usually, we think of players going to work for one of their former teams in situations like this, but the Dodgers were not one of the nine teams to employ Cruz during his 23 years as a pro. Obviously, they’ve admired him from afar anyway. Cruz retired earlier this month after hitting 464 homers in 19 major league seasons. Rotoworld

Tigers president of baseball operations Scott Harris told reporters on Tuesday that he’s still looking to add starting pitching — even after their addition of Kenta Maeda.
Advice: That means that the Maeda addition shouldn’t dampen the Tigers’ interest in Seth Lugo. The 34-year-old hurler was terrific in 2023 — posting a 3.57 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and a 140/36 K/BB ratio over 146 1/3 innings in 26 starts with the Padres. If they’re able to land Lugo as well, it would really help to solidify a starting rotation for a Tigers’ team that could compete in the American League Central if things break right in 2024.

Cody Bellinger was named as the Comeback Player of the Year in the National League for the 2023 season.
Advice: The 28-year-old superstar bet on himself — taking a one-year deal with the Cubs after several disappointing seasons to end his Dodgers’ tenure — and that gamble paid off in a big way as he slashed an outstanding .307/.356/.525 with 26 long balls, 95 runs scored, 97 RBI and 20 stolen bases across 556 plate appearances in his 130 games. He’s expected to land an extremely lucrative multi-year contract this winter — with MLBTradeRumors.com projecting that he’ll wind up in the neighborhood of 12 years and $264 million. Rotoworld

Liam Hendriks named as Comeback Player of the Year
Liam Hendriks was named as the Comeback Player of the Year in the American League for the 2023 season.
Advice: The 34-year-old hurler battled his way back after being diagnosed with Stage 4 Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in January, returning to the White Sox’ bullpen at the end of May after undergoing months of treatments. Hendriks ultimately had his season cut short after just five appearances after suffering a devastating elbow injury that led to Tommy John reconstructive surgery. He’ll miss the entire 2024 season, and will have a shot at making another comeback for the start of the 2025 season. Rotoworld
