Player Notes

  • Sneed could be heading to pitch in Japan
    Multiple reports state that free agent right-handed pitcher Cy Sneed is being pursued by the Tokyo Yakult Swallows.

    Advice: This is the same club that signed former Pittsburgh Pirate Jose Osuna recently. Sneed, 28, appeared in 18 games with the Astros in 2020, and he registered a 5.71 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and 21/10 K/BB ratio. He's been an up-and-down arm over the last couple of seasons, and a successful stint in Japan could help improve his stock going forward.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:44 pm
  • Jose Osuna signs with Tokyo Yakult Swallows
    Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that the Jose Osuna has signed with the Tokyo Yakult Swallows. 

    Advice: The Pirates designated Osuna for assignment last week, and he's found a new home relatively quickly. The 27-year-old hit just .205/.244/.397 last year with four homers and a 16/4 K/BB ratio in 82 plate appearances. The year before, however, Osuna hit 10 homers with a .756 OPS in 95 games. If Osuna hits well in Japan, it certainly seems likely that he could be back in an MLB role in a year or two.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:46 pm

  • Report: Prosecutor to request warrant for Martinez
    Hector Gomez of Z101 Sports reports that prosecutor Osvaldo Bonilla will request a warrant against Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez.

    Advice: The warrant comes after Martinez participated in a street party the previous weekend in the Dominican Republic. He will be charged with violating all the social distancing protocols and the mandatory use of masks at the gathering. A statement on Monday from the Cardinals acknowledged that they were "gathering details  about his participation after a video surfaced that showed him riding a motorbike with a passenger through a crowd on on a seaside street. More information on the potential arrest should present itself in the coming days, but it's possible Martinez will face disciplinary action on top of any punishment he receives for the violation. Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch tweets that the hurler is expected to pay fines, according to a representative.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:23 pm
  • Molina notes that Yankees, Mets, others interested
    In an interview with Mas Que Pelota, free agent catcher Yadier Molina mentioned that the Yankees, Mets, Padres and Angels have shown interest this offseason. 

    Advice: Molina, 38, also notes that he would like to return to St. Louis, and that he wants to play two more seasons. This comes a couple weeks after a report from Jon Heyman of MLB Network noting that there were 3-f4 other teams long with the Yankees, Mets and Cardinals were interested in the backstop. It still seems very likely that the potential Hall of Famer stays in St. Louis, but it doesn't appear it will be from a lack of interest.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:12 pm
  • Report says no charges coming for Randy Arozarena
    According to the Mexican newspaper PorEsto, Randy Arozarena has been released after a 48-hour hold and will not face charges for a domestic incident involving his daughter and his daughter's mother.

    Advice: Arozarena was detained in Mexico's Yucatan state on Tuesday on allegations of domestic violence and a disagreement over custody of the young child. His lawyer, Carlos Chable, told PorEsto that "there were not enough elements to bring it to trial" (translated from Spanish) and that "there is no longer a crime to prosecute" (also translated). Arozarena could still be subject to some sort of discipline from Major League Baseball once the commissioner's office completes its own investigation into the incident, which was partially caught on video.
