Player Notes

  • MIL reportedly declines Braun's $15 million option
    The MLBPA lists Ryan Braun as a free agent. 

    Advice: Braun's contract either called for a $15 million mutual option for 2021, or a $4 million buyout. Unsurprisingly, it appears the Brewers have decided for the latter. The soon to be 37-year-old hit just .233/.281/.488 in 39 games while dealing injuries to his back and finger. It seems plausible that Milwaukee could have interest in Braun at a significantly lowered rate, but it's also possible that the former MVP will either be playing with a new club in 2021 or possibly decide to retire.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:59 pm
  • Report: Yankees exercise LHP Britton's club option
    Andy Martino of MLB.com reports that the Yankees are exercising Zack Britton's club option for 2022. 

    Advice: With the Yankees picking up the 2022 option, Britton's $13 million player option for 2021 becomes locked in. He'll make $14 million in 2022. The left-hander has posted an ERA below 2.00 in each of the last two seasons, and it was 1.89 in 20 games in 2020 with a 16/7 K/BB ratio over 20 appearances with a 1.00 WHIP and .174 BAA. Britton will be a high-leverage reliever again for the Yankees in the next two years, and has a chance to earn save chances -- depending of course on Aroldis Chapman's health/involvement with the organization.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:59 pm
  • SHP Venditte sent outright to Triple-A by Marlins
    Marlins outrighted SHP Pat Venditte to Triple-A New Orleans. 

    Advice: Venditte was reinstated off the 60-day injured list before being outrighted off the 40-man roster -- and the Marlins did the same with Josh A. Smith and Mike Morin. The both-handed pitcher threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings with five strikeouts and no walks before suffering a right oblique strain in the middle of August. Venditte, Smith and Moran are all expected to become free agents.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:15 pm
  • Marlins outright Morin to Triple-A New Orleans
    Marlins sent RHP Mike Morin outright to Triple-A New Orleans. 

    Advice: Morin was one of three pitchers that were reinstated from the 60-day injured list only to be outrighted off the roster. The right-hander was placed on the IL with a right elbow UCL injury in August after appearing in just three games. He's expected to become a free agent after refusing the assignment.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:15 pm
  • Marlins outright Josh A. Smith off 40-man roster
    Marlins sent RHP Josh A. Smith outright to Triple-A New Orleans. 

    Advice: The Marlins need to clean up room on the 40-man roster, so Smith along with Pat Venditte and Mike Morin have been removed from it. The right-hander was ineffective in his 16 games and 26 1/3 innings with a 6.84 ERA and 1.67 WHIP. The expectation is that all three pitchers will become free agents, so Miami no longer has a monopoly on the Josh Smith market.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:14 pm
