Tyson Ross Headshot

Tyson Ross (shoulder) is expected to make his season debut in June.

Added 2 days ago Source
Ross was great for the Padres for 3 seasons between 2013-2015 but he suffered an injury in his only start of 2016. Shoulder injuries are tough to come back from. The Rangers are hopeful he will be able to overcome the injury and return to form.
Jacob deGrom Headshot

New York Mets re-signed Jacob deGrom to a 1-year, $4.05M contract.

deGrom signed a one-year deal with the Mets today, and by doing so both sides will avoid going to arbitration. The 28-year-old has been solid for the Mets since breaking into the Major Leagues back in 2014, and last season he pitched 148 innings and had an ERA of just 3.04. New York's rotation has been decimated by injuries over the past couple of years, and the Mets will certainly be counting on deGrom to pitch well and remain healthy for all of 2017.
Eric Sogard Headshot

Brewers signed Eric Sogard to a minor league contract.

After six years with the A's, Sogard will be heading to Milwaukee. He batted .239 in his career in the majors and now at the age of 30, it is time for the Athletics to move on.
Mike Trout Headshot

Mike Trout was named as the winner of the American League MVP Award.

Added 2 months ago Source
He now becomes the fifth player in MLB history to win the MVP twice before turning 25. Trout played on a lousy Angels team in 2016 but still put up elite numbers once more with a .315 AVG, 29 homers, 100 RBI and 30 steals to go along with the AL-leading .441 OBP. There is no doubt as to how good Trout can be and is, now it's just up to the Angels front office to put a competitive team around him going forward.
Yoenis Cespedes Headshot

Mets confirm they met with Yoenis Cespedes agent Wednesday. They believe it's still possible that there's resolution by end of winter meetings.

Added 2 months ago Source
Losing Cespedes to FA would be a huge loss to the Mets. The Mets ranked near the bottom of the league in offense despite a big year from the star OF. Cespedes hit .280 with 31 HRs and 86 RBIs this past season.
Matt Carpenter Headshot

Cardinals let infielder Matt Carpenter know that he will be the team's first baseman entering 2017.

Added 2 months ago Source
Carpenter spent time all around the Cardinals infield in 2016 so his commitment to first base could make 2017 his final year with multiple position eligibility. Carpenter's offensive contributions in 2016 was solid as he hit .271 with 81 runs, 21 home runs and 68 RBI over 129 games.
Josh Collmenter Headshot

Braves signed Josh Collmenter to a one-year deal.

Added 2 months ago Source
Collmenter has established a place for himself as an end of the rotation arm in this league, so this deal makes sense for the Braves considering their lack of depth amongst their staff. Collmenter has also proven able to serve as a versatile innings eater out of the pen if needed, so he was just the right man for the Braves to ink considering their need for a pitching staff face lift.
Kyle Schwarber Headshot

Kyle Schwarber is batting second for the Cubs in Game 6 on Tuesday.

Added 2 months ago Source
With the series moving to Cleveland, the Cubs have the added benefit of using a designated hitter tonight, and they will use Kyle Schwarber in that capacity on Tuesday. Schwarber's lightning-quick return from a serious knee injury has been well-documented, but he's been able to bring a spark to the Cubs lineup by hitting .375 so far in the World Series. He'll hit second tonight for the Cubs in front of Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo.
Kyle Schwarber Headshot

Kyle Schwarber will bat second for Game 6 Tuesday night.

In a must win game for the Cubs to reach a game seven, Schwarber will play bat second. He wasn't able to play the outfield which is the reason for him not playing in Chicago but now that he can DH, he is in the starting lineup.
