Seattle has done pretty good building the back end of its rotation.

Smyly is a good addition.

If Casilla can limit the long balls the A's should have a solid trade chip on their hands if nothing else. Good signing.

If they could do something else substantial, like sign Bautista, it's conceivable they could be in the Wild Card race in late summer. They'd almost certainly need excellent seasons from Gray and Manaea though.

Wil Myers and the Padres are reaching an extension:


That could end up being a pretty team-friendly deal. Although looking a bit more closely at Myers' 2016 season reveals one interesting stretch:

From June 1st - 24th (a stretch of 22 games and 100 plate appearances) he hit .349/.420/.802 (yeah that's an 802 SLG) and accumulated half of his entire season's WAR during that 3 1/2 week stretch. I used this site to do the calculations myself http://wahoosonfirst.com/war-calculator/...rsion-2-1/

That was a pretty incredible stretch. Is the real Wil Myers a 3 - 4 win player every year?

Danny Duffy signs a 5 year deal worth 65 million with the Royals. He was in his last year of arbitration and was scheduled to become a free agent next winter.


Could be a pretty good deal for KC if he can stay healthy.

Trumbo stays with the Orioles. 3 years 37.5 million. 4.5 million of it is deferred. He'll get yearly payments of 1.5 million from 2020-22.


Also apparently incentives tied to silver slugger awards included as well. Not sure how much though.

Dodgers and Rays apparently are close to a deal that would send Logan Forsythe to LA.


Edit - Jose De Leon heading to Tampa Bay.

Twins really botched things by not getting a deal done with the Dodgers imo. The Dodgers are the only team that could've offered a quality deal for Dozier that had the need and were looking to do a deal. Now the Twins have Dozier and nowhere to trade him.

Dodgers got a quality guy to fill their 2b hole with Forsythe.

They sure did. Forsythe could very easily end up being just as good a player as Dozier over the next two seasons.

I can understand where the Twins were coming from with Dozier's asking price - it seems like the Dodgers were holding strong on JDL as the only notable prospect they were willing to give up (and I'm thrilled they were able to keep Alvarez and Bellinger especially).

The Cards immediately come to mind as a potential spot for Dozier. I don't see Wong cutting it as a starter and Gyorko is apparently playing 3B next season. I don't think Peralta's played a game at 2B in his life and Diaz will man SS. Maybe Luke Weaver could be the main piece going to Minny.

Greg Holland has signed in Colorado on a 1 year deal + vesting option. Because if there's one place where a pitcher can rebuild his value it's Coors Field. Plain

Yeah I don't get that either. Holland unless reports were overstated, was being pursued by a lot of clubs. Colorado must've made the best offer by far you would think. Go to a team in a hitter friendly environment, who isn't likely a playoff team? Must be hoping to capitalize on small sample size, with the few opportunities he may get Silly

The Rockies aren't going to win the West but I could see them pushing for a wild card spot. Especially if they can turn one of their extra outfielders into a good starting pitcher.

It's possible he feels like he has the inside track to closing duties with the Rockies. Which, given his track record, isn't that far fetched at all. Ottavino and McGee are very solid options as well but if he closes for the majority of the year on say, an 85 win team, that puts him in line for a big payday.

And I just re-visited the link and it's updated to include this: He can "earn up to $14MM next season if he serves as the Rockies’ closer." So yeah, I imagine Colorado did make the biggest offer.

Brandon Moss to KC on a 2 year deal worth 12 million. Very backloaded apparently.

Practically half the Royals' team will hit free agency after this season so I guess that makes sense.

I wonder if the O's have any plans to improve their rotation before the season starts? As a Jays fan I hope they don't. I'm looking forward to seeing 40% of the starts go to Wade Miley and Ubaldo Jimenez.
