Player Notes

  • SF, TOR considering trade for Avisail Garcia
    USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Giants and Blue Jays have spoken to the White Sox about a potential trade for Avisail Garcia.

    Advice: Nightengale notes that there is "nothing close" at this point, but many in the industry -- including a number of beat writers who cover the White Sox -- believe Garcia will be on the move this winter. The 26-year-old had a breakout season in 2017, slashing .330/.380/.506 with 18 home runs and 80 RBI in 136 games while earning his first All-Star nod. The issue for a team like San Francisco -- and other clubs in the NL -- is that Garcia is a dreadful defender in the outfield. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:29 am
  • Mets trade for 2B Jason Kipnis has 'traction'
    Chris Cotillo of SB Nation hears there is "traction" between the Mets and Indians on a Jason Kipnis trade.

    Advice: The two sides have engaged in serious discussions this week at the Winter Meetings and the heat probably turned up even further when Ian Kinsler went to the Angels on Wednesday night. Kinsler had been a target of the Mets, but they were on his no-trade list and he told Tigers GM Al Avila that he would only accept a move to Anaheim. Kipnis would be a nice bounceback play for the apparently cost-conscious Metropolitans. He struggled to a .232/.291/.414 batting line in 2017 with Cleveland, but the 30-year-old second baseman put up an .817 OPS in 297 games between 2015-2016. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:04 am
  • Astros grab OF/LHP Anthony Gose in Rule 5
    Astros selected OF/LHP Anthony Gose from the Rangers with the 15th pick in the Rule 5 draft.

    Advice: Gose struggled with his attempted conversion from outfielder to left-handed reliever in 2017, but Astros executive Kevin Goldstein told reporters on Wednesday that the club will double down on that experiment. It'll be an uphill battle for the 27-year-old to stick on Houston's active roster throughout the entire season. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:44 am

  • Padres 'clear-cut favorites' for Eric Hosmer
    USA Today's Bob Nightengale writes that the Padres have become the "clear-cut favorites" for free agent Eric Hosmer.

    Advice: Nightengale says the Padres have had two face-to-face meetings with Hosmer and his camp, presumably at this week's Winter Meetings in Orlando. But this of course will all come down to money and agent Scott Boras offered no indication Wednesday in his annual scrum with the media that Hosmer has lowered his sky-high asking price. Nightengale notes that the Red Sox are also "lurking" on the 28-year-old first baseman, who posted a career-best .318/.385/.498 batting line with 25 home runs and 94 RBI over 162 games for the Royals in 2017. He also earned his fourth career Gold Glove, though advanced defensive metrics aren't as kind to him as the folks who vote on those awards. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:55 am

  • O's could trade Manny Machado this week?
    USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Orioles "are moving aggressively on Manny Machado trade talks and now believe they can move him by the end of the week."

    Advice: Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic wrote late Wednesday night that the White Sox have emerged "as the most aggressive suitor" for Machado and Nightengale confirms that the Pale Hose have presented the strongest offer so far to Baltimore, however the Cardinals, Giants, Red Sox, Phillies, and Yankees are also in the mix on this. Machado is an elite-level talent and he is only 25 years old, but the star third baseman can become a free agent after the 2018 season and the Orioles clearly don't think they can afford to lock him up to a long-term deal. A trade of Machado might kick off a larger rolling rebuild effort for the O's front office. Brad Brach, Zach Britton, and Adam Jones are all entering walk years. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:01 am
