Player Notes

  • Frazier involved in Yankees-Pirates talks
    The New York Post's George King says that Clint Frazier might be involved in the Gerrit Cole talks between the Pirates and Yankees.

    Advice: Until the inevitable deal comes, Frazier is going to be a part of just about every rumor bringing a significant name to the Yankees. He's probably not as high of a priority as the Pirates as he would be for some other teams -- they hope to soon have Austin Meadows ready to step in if they trade Andrew McCutchen -- but he'd still be a candidate to be involved in a trade, likely with a pitching prospect or two.

  • A's, Cards announce Stephen Piscotty swap
    Athletics acquired OF Stephen Piscotty from the Cardinals for SS Yairo Munoz and 2B Max Schrock.

    Advice: The framework of the trade was agreed to on Wednesday night and then officially announced Thursday after Piscotty passed his physical. The 26-year-old outfielder struggled with injuries throughout 2017 and his mother was diagnosed with ALS in the middle of the summer. He heads home to the Bay Area as a strong bounceback candidate for 2018. St. Louis signed Piscotty to a relatively team-friendly six-year, $33.5 million contract extension last April after watching him put up an .815 OPS with 29 home runs and 124 RBI over his first 216 major league games between 2015-2016.

  • TEX re-signs Hanser Alberto to minors deal
    Rangers re-signed INF Hanser Alberto to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Alberto was non-tendered by the Rangers on December 1 after being limited to five minor league games in 2017 because of a shoulder injury that eventually required surgery. The hope is he'll be fully recovered by the opening of camp in February, though that still won't guarantee him a spot on the MLB roster. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:58 am

  • Cubs in agreement with reliever Steve Cishek
    Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Cubs are in agreement on a contract with free agent reliever Steve Cishek.

    Advice: ESPN's Jerry Crasnick says it's a two-year deal in the $12-14 million range. Cishek dealt with some durability issues in 2017, but when healthy the 31-year-old sidearmer delivered a 2.01 ERA, 0.896 WHIP, and 41/14 K/BB ratio in 44 2/3 innings between the Mariners and Rays. He'll add a unique presence to the back end of the Chicago bullpen. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:20 am

  • Kintzler returning to Nats with two-year deal
    Brandon Kintzler has agreed to a two-year free agent contract with the Nationals, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

    Advice: Kintzler finished the 2017 season in Washington and will return to a setup role with the defending NL East champs after fielding interest from several other teams this winter -- some of whom might have given him a chance to close. His new agreement with the Nats carries a $10 million guarantee and it can jump to $16 million if certain incentives are reached and an option is exercised, per USA Today's Bob Nightengale. Kintzler owns a sharp 3.08 ERA in 125 2/3 innings since the beginning of the 2016 campaign, though the 33-year-old right-hander has never generated many swing-and-misses.
