Player Notes

  • Report: Cubs showing interest in Yu Darvish
    Bruce Levine of CBS Chicago hears the Cubs are showing interest in free agent Yu Darvish.

    Advice: Their interest makes sense, as the team is bracing for the loss of free agent starters Jake Arrieta and John Lackey and still has designs on vying for a World Series title in 2018. Darvish's case is an interesting one, as a few years ago he was set for a big payday this winter before Tommy John surgery and some shaky outings down the stretch last season muddied the water. Still, the 31-year-old is near the top of the list of free agent starters available, and the Dodgers, Astros and Twins, among others, are believed to be in competition for the right-hander as well.

  • Braves acquire Brandon McCarthy from Dodgers
    Braves acquired RHP Brandon McCarthy, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, LHP Scott Kazmir, INF Charlie Culberson and cash considerations from the Dodgers for OF Matt Kemp.

    Advice: The 34-year-old hurler should make for a nice addition to the Braves' starting rotation. McCarthy posted a 3.98 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 72/27 K/BB ratio over 92 2/3 innings with the Dodgers in 2017. Durability is the biggest issue with McCarthy, as he has logged a total of 155 2/3 innings over the last three seasons. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:02 pm
  • Braves acquire Scott Kazmir in Kemp trade
    Braves acquired LHP Scott Kazmir, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, RHP Brandon McCarthy, INF Charlie Culberson and cash considerations from the Dodgers for OF Matt Kemp.

    Advice: The 33-year-old southpaw missed the entire 2017 season while battling continued issues with his left arm and hip. He's nothing but a lottery ticket for the Braves at this stage. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:00 pm

  • Yankees agree to one-year deal with Sabathia
    Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports that the Yankees have agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with CC Sabathia.

    Advice: The deal is pending a physical. It will be the 10th season spent in New York for the 37-year-old southpaw who posted a 3.69 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in a resurgent 2017 season. He give the Yankees much needed depth in the starting rotation, but it's likely they'll still be in the market for additional arms despite this signing. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:47 am

  • Koda Glover (shoulder) to throw in January
    Koda Glover (shoulder) said Saturday that he expects to begin throwing off of a mound by January.

    Advice: The right-hander ascended to the Nationals' closer role during the 2017 season before shoulder and back issues cut his season short cut his season short in June. With Sean Doolittle, Ryan Madson and Brandon Kintzler now in the mix, Glover will have to battle for a setup role in the Nationals' bullpen. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:18 am
