Home Sport Rumors: Will Yanks-Sox contention ignite over Senga?

Rumors: Will Yanks-Sox contention ignite over Senga?

We’re preserving notice of the total most smartly-liked free agent and alternate rumors.

Nov. 21: Will Yanks-Sox contention ignite over Senga?

The Yankees and Purple Sox war it out every year in the AL East, and they have long previous head to trail for some top free agents over time, too. That intellectual will most doubtless be the case again this offseason, in phrases of Eastern upright-hander Kodai Senga.

Each clubs have been in contact with the representatives for the 29-year-used, in preserving with MLB Community’s Jon Morosi. That’s no longer too ravishing, supplied that Original York and Boston every may presumably maybe presumably stand to bolster their rotation depth. And whereas Senga does no longer primarily profile as an ace in MLB, he has been highly profitable with Nippon Expert Baseball’s Softbank Hawks, at the side of a 1.94 ERA in 2022. Senga’s impressive fastball mosey and sinful splitter completely give Main League suitors heaps on which to dream.

Add in the incontrovertible reality that Senga is an unrestricted free agent who’s no longer linked to Draft bewitch compensation — unlike fellow free agents much like Carlos Rodón or Nathan Eovaldi, who obtained qualifying offers — and Senga most spirited becomes more marketable.

Pointless to claim, these same issues will allure to other groups moreover the Yankees and Purple Sox. Certainly, the Giants, Mets and Padres moreover have been linked to Senga, who’s obvious to garner standard hobby this iciness.

Nov. 21: Are Dodgers the top likely match for JV?

While the Astros opt Justin Verlander assist, and the Mets and Yankees may presumably maybe presumably every be after him, there is but any other gargantuan-market club that stands out as a match for the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner, in preserving with MLB Community’s Jon Morosi. More >

Nov. 21: Yankees have ‘checked in on’ deGrom (describe)

Because the marketplace for deGrom continues to unfold, SNY’s Andy Martino reported Monday, citing a league supply, that the Yankees “no longer too prolonged previously requested scientific recordsdata on deGrom.” More > 

Nov. 21: Will Haniger head to So Cal?

Free-agent outfielder Mitch Haniger has been with the Mariners since 2017, but Seattle’s recent alternate for Teoscar Hernández may presumably maybe presumably show that the club is prepared to trail in a clear course. Alternatively, there will most doubtless be other West Soar groups in play for Haniger, who will turn 32 in December.

MLB Community’s Jon Morosi reported Monday that every the Dodgers and Angels are in Haniger, alongside with the Rangers. The Dodgers are down an outfielder after non-tendering Cody Bellinger, and whereas Haniger can’t play heart enviornment at this point in his profession, he may presumably maybe presumably screech more thump than Bellinger has supplied of leisurely. The Angels, meanwhile, are attempting more bats to toughen Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout, and whereas Ohtani’s presence plan the club may presumably maybe presumably now not use Haniger grand at DH, he may presumably maybe presumably match there in both corner outfield region.

A excessive ankle sprain helped restrict Haniger to intellectual 57 games in 2022, when he moreover slumped at the plate. But the oft-injured outfielder is intellectual one season eradicated from launching 39 homers in ’21. He moreover is no longer going to mark his new crew a Draft choice, after Seattle declined to make him a qualifying provide.

Nov. 20: Twins motivated to re-signal Correa

Carlos Correa is a free agent for the second straight offseason after opting out of his contract with the Twins, but he may presumably maybe presumably also merely no longer primarily be one and performed in Minnesota. In step with MLB Community insider Jon Heyman, the Twins are “certainly motivated to lift shut Correa.” More >

Nov. 20: After missing out on Rizzo, Astros turn focal point to Abreu (describe)

The Astros proceed to gaze an upgrade initially put sinful after Anthony Rizzo re-signed with the Yankees, and Houston is displaying hobby in 2020 AL MVP José Abreu, in preserving with a describe by Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic (subscription required).

With extinct Yuli Gurriel a free agent coming off a subpar season at the plate, the Astros are Abreu to bolster an already sturdy lineup coming off a World Sequence championship. Abreu hit most spirited 15 homers in 2022, but mute managed to put up an .824 OPS. He is 35, however, so will most doubtless be a short-term contract provide.

Nov. 20: Heyman predicts Phils will reach away with large name FA shortstop

The Phillies are reportedly one of 11 clubs for the time being engaged with the free-agent shortstop market, and MLB Community insider Jon Heyman expects them to reach assist away with one of the well-known four top accessible names.

Philadelphia has been linked to Trea Turner this offseason, but Heyman considers Xander Bogaerts to be the in all chance choice. Phillies president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski has familiarity with Bogaerts from their time alongside with the Purple Sox.

The Phillies made a ravishing flee to the World Sequence in 2022 earlier than shedding to the Astros in six games. The club doesn’t have a ton of wants, but shortstop is clearly one of them. Phils shortstops produced an 82 wRC+ closing season, the 11th-lowest ticket in MLB and the third lowest amongst groups that made the playoffs, at the assist of the Yankees and Cardinals.

Philly moreover has a emptiness at second sinful after declining Jean Segura’s club choice, but Bryson Stott may presumably maybe presumably have that role if the Phils signal a large name shortstop.

Nov. 20: Assessing Dodgers’ shortstop choices

When Corey Seager turned into a free agent closing offseason and signed with the Rangers, the Dodgers’ checklist of shortstop choices for 2022 began and ended with Trea Turner. But with Turner now a free agent, the Dodgers have a series of avenues they’d presumably maybe presumably also merely assign in thoughts heading into 2023.

MLB Community insider Jon Heyman no longer too prolonged previously broke down the free-agent shortstop market in an look on “Excessive Heat” and stated he thinks the Dodgers will reach away with one of the well-known four accessible stars at the feature.

Alternatively, their in all chance choice may presumably maybe presumably also merely no longer primarily be Turner. In step with Heyman in a chunk of writing for the Original York Publish, the Dodgers get Turner needs to play for an East Soar crew. And whereas the Dodgers love Correa, Heyman gets the sense the crew is reluctant to signal him as a consequence of his connection to the Astros’ signal-stealing scandal in 2017, when Houston defeated L.A. in the World Sequence.

That leaves Dansby Swanson and Xander Bogaerts because the in all chance suits for Los Angeles, with Gavin Lux representing an inner backup belief. If Lux is the choice, it would make bigger the chance of the Dodgers pursuing other excessive-priced free agents much like Aaron Judge and Justin Verlander.

Nov. 20: Mariners pondering huge kind of heart-infield choices

Mariners president of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto reaffirmed the crew’s dedication to J.P. Crawford as its starting up shortstop all the plan via the Total Managers Meetings, but the club has a gap at second sinful and is pondering a large kind of heart-infield choices.

In step with The Athletic’s Jim Bowden, the Mariners have checked in on free agent Trea Turner and “the total other free agent heart infielders.” Turner, Carlos Correa, Xander Bogaerts and Dansby Swanson are the four supreme names on the shortstop market, whereas ragged Mariners Jean Segura and Adam Frazier are the top likely second basemen accessible. 

Seattle is moreover exploring the alternate market and displaying hobby in the Yankees’ Gleyber Torres and the Brewers’ Kolten Wong.

MLB.com’s Jon Paul Morosi beforehand has linked Seattle to Turner, but it indubitably’s unclear how realistic a goal the 29-year-used is for the M’s. The supreme free-agent deal the Mariners have handed out all the plan via Dipoto’s tenure was Robbie Ray’s 5-year, $115 million contract closing offseason. Turner will indubitably hasten for more than that. It’s moreover believed that Turner, a Florida native whose partner is from Original Jersey, prefers to play for an East Soar crew.

Nov. 20: Bellinger drawing valuable hobby (describe)

Cody Bellinger interestingly has drawn valuable hobby on the free-agent market since the Dodgers non-tendered the outfielder on Friday. In step with a describe from The Athletic’s Jim Bowden, no lower than 5 groups called rapidly after Bellinger turned into a free agent and various different more have touched sinful since.

Bellinger has hit .193 with a .611 OPS (64 OPS+) in 239 games over the last two seasons, but he’s mute most spirited 27 years used and isn’t that a ways eradicated from a hit the NL MVP Award in 2019. 

A minimal of, Bellinger can provide Gold Glove defense in heart enviornment and sturdy baserunning. And if he rediscovers his do at the plate, he will most doubtless be one of the well-known top likely additions any crew makes this offseason. Given the low risk and doubtlessly excessive reward, it’s no longer ravishing that he’s receiving this grand consideration.

The Dodgers are expected to strive to screech Bellinger assist on a lower salary than he would have earned in his final year of arbitration eligibility, but that is also annoying to pull off pondering the series of groups displaying hobby in the Arizona native.

Nov. 20: Giants, Rangers amongst clubs in Haniger (describe)

In step with Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic (subscription required), the Giants and Rangers are amongst the groups with hobby in free-agent outfielder Mitch Haniger. Haniger was afflict for a ways of closing season, ending with a .736 OPS and 11 dwelling runs in 57 games for the Mariners. But he’s intellectual one season eradicated from a 39-homer, 100-RBI campaign for Seattle, and with the Mariners acquiring Teoscar Hernández from Toronto, it appears to be like to reduce the chance that Haniger will re-signal with the club.

Nov. 19: Abreu a top precedence for Padres

Free-agent first baseman José Abreu is a top precedence for the Padres, in preserving with MLB.com’s Jon Paul Morosi, who notes that Abreu spoke to Friars officers this month.

San Diego has openings initially put sinful and DH with Josh Bell and Brandon Drury every reaching free agency.

Abreu, 35, has spent the previous nine seasons with the White Sox. He won the 2020 AL MVP Award and is a profession .292/.354/.506 hitter with 243 homers and 863 RBIs. Abreu hit a profession-low 15 dwelling runs in 2022 but mute accomplished with a 133 OPS+, nearly much like his profession ticket (134).

Nov. 19: Cubs in on deGrom?

Nov. 19: Mets pondering Verlander as deGrom backup belief (describe)

Where will the Mets turn if they’re no longer in a position to re-signal two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom? In step with Mike Puma of the Original York Publish, the club is pondering AL Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander. More >

Nov. 19: Mariners displaying hobby in Gleyber

In step with MLB Community insider Joel Sherman in a chunk of writing for the Original York Publish (subscription required), the Yankees let executives at the Total Managers Meetings closing week know that they’re “originate for commercial with their heart infielders.”

Sherman notes that he’d be disturbed if both Gleyber Torres or Isiah Kiner-Falefa isn’t dealt. The Mariners may presumably maybe presumably also also be a imaginable alternate partner, as Sherman reports Seattle has shown hobby in Torres to have the second-sinful emptiness left by free agent Adam Frazier.

Sherman moreover mentions the Marlins and White Sox as two doable suits for Torres. More >

Nov. 19: Essentially the most smartly-liked on Judge’s market

The Aaron Judge market will most doubtless be heating up.

MLB Community insider Jon Heyman hears the Dodgers belief to make a flee at the free-agent slugger after non-tendering heart fielder Cody Bellinger on Friday evening. Los Angeles has cleared roughly $100 million from its books since the cease of the season, doubtlessly opening the door for a predominant free-agent splurge.

Meanwhile, Yankees accepted manager Brian Cashman confirmed Thursday that the crew has made Judge an updated provide.

The Giants are moreover lingering in the background. San Francisco is believed to have hobby in Judge, a Bay Home native, and president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi has made it clear the crew has the spending energy to be a predominant free-agent power. More >

Nov. 19: Breaking down which groups want a shortstop the most

With Carlos Correa, Trea Turner, Dansby Swanson and Xander Bogaerts all accessible, the free-agent market is abundant with large name shortstops for the second straight offseason.

Here’s a witness at the groups which have the supreme need for this kind of shortstops, from MLB.com’s Mike Petriello. More >

Nov. 19: Rays, Royals may presumably maybe presumably also merely have hobby in Smith (describe)

With the non-soft in the good purchase of-off date having handed Friday, various appealing avid gamers turned into free agents, one of whom is ragged Mets first baseman Dominic Smith. Smith posted a .993 OPS in the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign earlier than struggling at the plate in ’21 and ’22. In step with a describe by Mike Puma of the Original York Publish, the Rays and Royals will most doubtless be amongst the clubs in Smith.

Tampa Bay has a emptiness to have initially put sinful after trading Ji-Man Choi to Pittsburgh. Kansas City has seen the upward push of Vinnie Pasquantino at the feature, but there’s continuously the designated hitter role that Smith may presumably maybe presumably have, steadily getting a delivery in the enviornment.

Nov. 18: Heyman can ‘with out exclaim gaze’ deGrom to the Dodgers

Jacob deGrom to the Dodgers? MLB Community insider Jon Heyman recommended Christopher Russo on MLB Community’s Excessive Heat on Friday that he can “with out exclaim gaze that taking place.” More >

Nov. 18: Giants ‘displaying hobby’ in Jansen (describe)

MLB Community insider Jon Paul Morosi reports the Giants are “displaying hobby” in extinct free-agent nearer Kenley Jansen. Morosi notes that San Francisco’s president of baseball operations, Farhan Zaidi, and manager Gabe Kapler know Jansen smartly from their time in the Dodgers’ front place of job.

Jansen, 35, posted a 3.38 ERA with an NL-simplest 41 saves for the Braves closing season after spending the first 13 seasons of his profession with Los Angeles.

Nov. 18: Padres meet with RHP Senga (describe)

The Kodai Senga U.S. tour is continuing apace. The Eastern upright-hander met with the Padres in San Diego on Thursday, sources recommended The Athletic’s Dennis Lin. 

Lin notes that Senga is shut with Padres ace Yu Darvish and played with Padres pitchers Carve Martinez and Robert Suarez in Japan. Senga, who struck out 1,252 batters and had a 10.3 K/9 fee all the plan via 11 seasons for Nippon Expert Baseball’s Fukuoka Softbank Hawks, may presumably maybe presumably have a rotation gap in San Diego; Mike Clevinger and Sean Manaea are every free agents this iciness.

This most smartly-liked recordsdata follows a describe from SNY earlier this week that Senga will meet with the Mets. MLB.com’s Jon Paul Morosi reported that the Angels, Dodgers, Rangers, Mariners and Blue Jays all are displaying hobby in Senga. The 29-year-used has moreover been linked to the Cubs and Giants.

Nov. 18: Laying out Yankees’ Judge choices

The Yankees’ offseason will proceed in a single of four ways, all counting on what occurs with Aaron Judge.

  1. The Yankees signal Judge and other gargantuan free agents — both a top starting up pitcher love Justin Verlander, Carlos Rodón and even Jacob deGrom, or one of the well-known marquee shortstops love Trea Turner.
  1. The Yankees signal Judge to a megadeal and restrict their free-agent spending elsewehere. On this concern, Original York may presumably maybe presumably be chuffed to roll with Oswald Peraza and Anthony Volpe in the guts infield.
  1. Judge indicators in assorted locations and the Yankees hasten after various free-agent stars to interchange him. That may presumably maybe presumably mean a shortstop (Turner), a starter (Verlander) and a third part love Eastern outfielder Masataka Yoshida. Sherman even considers the “pipe dream” of a blockbuster alternate for Mike Trout.
  1. The Yankees originate no longer signal Judge but set their spending for future free-agent markets — both focusing on Shohei Ohtani next year or Juan Soto the year after that.

Nov. 18: Purple Sox searching for so that you may perhaps add an outfielder

Outfielders love Brandon Nimmo from the Mets or Masataka Yoshida from Japan may presumably maybe presumably be loyal suits on the simpler cease of what the Purple Sox would pursue. Or the Sox may presumably maybe presumably hasten after a less pricey bat love Mitch Haniger or Michael Conforto.

Among the many less doubtless choices McCaffrey discusses are Aaron Judge (doubtlessly too pricey given the crew’s precedence of preserving Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts in Boston), Michael Brantley (the Purple Sox opt more of a energy hitter) and a reunion with Andrew Benintendi (doubtless wants a longer-term deal than the Purple Sox are lively to provide).
