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

    Advice: As Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported, Gonzalez will be designated for assignment and become a free agent. The 35-year-old slugger hit just .242/.287/.355 with three homers and 30 RBI in 71 games for the Dodgers in 2017. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:58 am

  • Cubs officially sign Cishek to two-year deal
    Cubs signed RHP Steve Cishek to a two-year, $13 million contract.

    Advice: The two sides reached an agreement on Thursday, but the deal didn't become official until Saturday after the right-hander passed his physical. He'll function in a setup capacity for the Cubs in 2018. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:21 am
  • 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
