Player Notes

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

    Advice: The 28-year-old is a defense-first type of utility player but could add valuable versatility to the Braves' bench. He's a career .231/.272/.324 hitter over 443 plate appearances in his big league career. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:04 pm
  • 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
  • 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

  • Doolittle (shoulder) begins light throwing
    Sean Doolittle (shoulder) said Saturday at Nationals' Winter Fest that he has already started light throwing.

    Advice: Doolittle battled some shoulder issues during the 2017 campaign, but insists that he's full healthy and ready to go for the upcoming season. The 31-year-old posted a 2.81 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 62/10 K/BB ratio over 51 1/3 innings between the Athletics and Nationals in 2017. Barring the club signing a high-end closer like Wade Davis, Doolittle should open the season as the favorite for saves in the Nats' bullpen. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:29 am
