The Seattle Mariners have decided to part ways with veteran outfielder Carlos Gonzalez.
The 34-year-old was a longshot to make the club out of Spring Training, but will now have a chance to sign with another organization.
The Mariners decided to release Carlos Gonzalez despite having a lack of quality depth in the outfield. The three-time All-Star might have been able to add a veteran presence to this young rebuilding organization, but the Mariners want to go in another direction.
What is Next...
Prior to this year's abbreviated Spring Training outing, the Philadelphia Phillies weren't getting a lot of love as far as 2020 expectations go.
By the end of January, DraftKings had the Phils' over/under for 2020 win total at 84.5. FanDuel had them at 85.5. Worse yet, the 2020 PECOTA MLB Standings predict a 77-win season for Philadelphia.
While an 84-win year would be a marginal improvement from last year's, they're still predicted to finish second-to-last in the NL East.
Perhaps the lack of hype surrounding the 2020 Phillies...
30-year-old infielder Scooter Gennett says he is fine with sitting out the 2020 MLB season if he does not get the offer he deserves.
Gennett says that he know his worth and he won't accept anything else even if that means missing next season.
The seven-year veteran has reportedly been low-balled all offseason and remains a free agent. Gennett said his best offer was $1.5 million in base salary and another $500,000 in potential incentives. He decided to decline that offer and wait until a better...
Former reliever Francisco Rodriguez is eyeing a return to Major League Baseball.
Rodriguez mentioned in an interview that his goal is to return to the majors and he is completely sure that he can accomplish that.
The 38-year-old reliever has not pitched in the majors since the 2017 season. He posted a 7.82 ERA over 25.1 innings with the Detroit Tigers during his last season in the big leagues. Rodriguez signed a minor league deal with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2018, but was cut during...
Houston Astros owner Jim Crane has made it clear that he wants to re-sign outfielder George Springer.
Crane has reportedly reached out to Springer's representatives about the possibility of signing an extension with the organization.
The Astros selected Springer in the first round of the 2011 MLB June Amateur Draft. He has spent each of the last six seasons in the big leagues with Houston. The three-time All-Star is well deserving of an extension after what he's done on the field over the last three...
Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez has decided to put his contract negotiations with the organization on hold, according to ESPN.
The 27-year-old infielder wants to stay with the team long-term, but is stopping contract talk with the league currently shutdown.
Baez has reportedly had "really good" conversations with the team about a potential deal, but the two sides haven't discussed any further since camp was stopped. The good news is, Baez is under contract through 2021, so it's not urgent issue. However, the Cubs would...
The Oakland A’s finished the 2019 MLB season with a 97-65 record, good for 2nd place in the American League West. This finish led them to the AL Wild Card Game, where they lost 1-0 to the Tampa Bay Rays.
The A’s have a roster filled with young talent, and a farm system that GM Billy Beane ensures is continually stocked. The question moving forward is, who will the A’s keep, and who will they ship off to keep that farm system stocked?
The main questions for this revolve around three players. Third baseman Matt Chapman, Shortstop Marcus Semien,...
