Tracking Deals From Around MLB (UPDATES)

With the Non-Tender Deadline approaching (or Tender Deadline, should you choose), I wished to start out monitoring the fascinating or notable strikes we’re seeing across the league. I’m simply gonna maintain updating this submit on the fly…

  • The Angels and Twins agreed on a Gio Urshela commerce, with pitching prospect Alejandro Hidalgo the return:
  • It’s a reasonably modest return, even after Urshela had a pleasant bounce-back 12 months in Minnesota (.285/.338/.429/119 wRC+). With Anthony Rendon at third for the Angels, it is attainable Urshela turns into their shortstop? Anyway, of notice for the Twins:
  • As lengthy speculated, the Mets are going to chop ties with Dominic Smith tonight:
  • There have been rumors on the Trade Deadline that the Cubs would possibly take a flier on Smith as a bounce-back candidate, however provided that the fee to them was roughly nothing. I ponder, now that the fee is only a low-cost free agent contract (if he will get a giant league deal in any respect), would the Cubs view Smith as a back-up plan at first base if they do not land Jose Abreu? Pretty steep drop-off there, however I do assume Smith might be fascinating as a MAYBE choice if the worth was low and the Cubs’ different strikes clearly display that they don’t seem to be relying on something from Smith.
  • A pre-tender signing right here for the Yankees:
  • IKF was projected for $6.5 million by MLBTR, so he will get the consolation of not being non-tendered, and the Yankees get perhaps some value financial savings. We’ll see extra of those at this time, together with a number of minor ones.
  • Adrian Houser was on the bubble as a non-tender candidate for the Brewers, however they bought a pre-tender deal completed (at precisely the worth MLBTR projected, which suggests the Brewers simply did not wish to threat him getting extra):
  • Gonna ignore the Judge half for now (should you’re significantly in on Judge, you do not let Bellinger impression you a technique or one other), and as an alternative notice that the expectation of a Bellinger non-tender is rising:
  • He’s gotta get wholesome, however somebody will take a reclamation flier:
  • Man. I nonetheless keep in mind the primary couple of instances I noticed Reyes pitch within the massive leagues. He was going to be a celebrity. But management issues and damage points derailed it.
  • Fedde has by no means lived as much as his prospect hype (reclamation challenge, child); Voit’s offense has actually slipped the final two years, and that is all he is bought:
