Player AlarmsView All
J. Happ - SP
Happ and the Yankees "agreed to the structure" of a two-year, $34 million contract Wednesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
The deal, which is still being finalized, includes a third-year option based on the number of innings Happ pitches (or starts he makes) in the first two years of his contract. The veteran southpaw spent the final few months of the 2018 season with the Yankees, posting a 2.69 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 8.9 K/9 across 11 starts (63.2 innings). He'll join a starting rotation that already features the likes of Luis Severino, James Paxton and Masahiro Tanaka.

R. Martin - C
General manager Ross Atkins said Martin could play some third base in 2019, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports. "If he's playing (some) third base, that would be ok," Atkins said.
Martin is projected to open the season as Toronto's backup behind the dish, but his ability to play third base could afford him a few extra starts in 2019. That said, Martin hasn't played more than 91 games in either of the past two seasons, and he likely won't surpass that number entering his age-36 season for the rebuilding Blue Jays. He hit .194/.338/.325 with 10 homers in 90 games last season.

J. Bauers - 1B
General manager Erik Neander said Bauers is "our guy" at first base heading into 2019, Juan Toribio of The Athletic reports.
Neander added that the Rays will look at all options -- which could mean bringing in a righty swinging first baseman -- but it sounds like Bauers will at least handle the larger side of a platoon at first base in his sophomore season. The 23-year-old's rookie campaign was marred by a brutal slump in summer, and he finished with a disappointing .201/.316/.384 line in 96 games. He'll look to use his experience against major-league pitching to improve in 2019.

C. Davis - 1B
General manager Mike Elias said he believes Davis is big part of the Orioles moving forward, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
Elias added that it's a priority to get the slugging first baseman back on track -- citing analytics as a way to help -- after he hit just .168/.243/.296 with 16 homers in 128 games in 2018. Davis is still owed $110 million over the next four seasons, but it sounds like the Orioles will give the veteran a chance to snap out of his funk rather than treat him as a sunk cost.

R. Bleier - RP
General manager Mike Elias said Bleier (lat) is expected to be ready for Opening Day, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Bleier's 2018 season ended in June after the southpaw underwent lat surgery. Fortunately, it doesn't sound like the issue will impact his availability for the start of the 2019 campaign. Bleier should reprise his role as one of the team's setup men after posting a 1.93 ERA and 1.22 WHIP across 32.2 innings when healthy in 2018.

M. Trumbo - DH
General manager Mike Elias said he expects Trumbo (knee) to be ready for Opening Day, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Trumbo dealt with a balky knee for most of the 2018 season before ultimately opting to undergo season-ending surgery in September to repair the cartilage in his right knee. Barring any setbacks, it sounds like Trumbo will be ready to go for the start of the 2019 campaign. The veteran slugger, who hit .261/.313/.452 with 17 homers when healthy in 2018 (90 games), figures to serve as Baltimore's primary designated hitter in 2019.

M. Dubon - SS
Dubon (knee) has progressed to hitting off a tee, according to his personal Twitter account.
Dubon continues to slowly work his way back from surgery that he underwent in May to repair a torn ACL in his left knee. While the 24-year-old is expected to be fully healthy by spring training, he'll open the season with Triple-A San Antonio. Dubon could make his major-league debut in 2019 if he picks up where he left off prior to suffering his injury (.343/.348/.574 with four homers and six stolen bases in 27 games at Triple-A in 2018).

T. Rainey - RP
Rainey was traded from the Reds to the Nationals on Wednesday in exchange for Tanner Roark.
Rainey made his major-league debut in 2018, though he struggled in his small sample, allowing 19 runs while posting a 7:12 K:BB in seven innings of relief. The 25-year-old fared much better in his first taste of Triple-A, notching a 2.65 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 65:35 K:BB across 51 innings with Louisville. Rainey has the makings of a future high-leverage arm with a fastball that can touch triple digits, but he'll need to improve his control if he's to reach that ceiling.
