  • FA Starting Pitcher #17
    Ohtani takes home the prestigious honor for the third consecutive season after slashing a sublime .412/.654/1.066 with an American League-leading 44 homers and 20 stolen bases across 599 plate appearances in 135 games. The 29-year-old two-way superstar is in the midst of determining where he’ll take his once-in-a-generation talents for the 2024 campaign and beyond, but will remain one of the most fearsome sluggers in the game, regardless of where he ultimately winds up.
  • NYM Relief Pitcher #55
    No word on the exact financial terms yet, but Adams augments New York’s low-leverage relief depth heading into the 2024 campaign on a non-guaranteed split contract. The 32-year-old righty, who threw his slider nearly 90 percent of the time this past season for the Diamondbacks, posted an underwhelming 5.71 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 22/8 K/BB ratio across 17 1/3 innings (24 appearances) before undergoing season-ending right ankle surgery in early August. He’s a relatively low-risk gamble for Mets president of baseball operations David Stearns as he puts together New York’s relief mix.
  • NYM Shortstop #18
    The deal is now official after Wendle passed his physical. The soon-to-be 34-year-old provides the Mets with an experienced and versatile utility infielder to supplement their young core of infield prospects heading into the 2024 campaign. He’s coming off a pair of disappointing seasons at the dish for the division-rival Marlins, but was a roughly league-average hitter earlier in his career. He’s unlikely to garner enough at-bats to make an impact for fantasy managers outside of NL-only formats.
  • Mia Relief Pitcher #63
    Tyler was at the epicenter of a bizarre series of transactions prior to the 2022 season when he bounced around on waivers between several organizations. The 26-year-old righty spent last year in Seattle’s minor league system and has made seven relief appearances in the big leagues since 2021 between the Padres and Angels.
  • FA Relief Pitcher #55
    It’s a bit surprising to see Adams, who is recovering from early-August surgery to repair a fractured right ankle, landing a major league contract after posting a lackluster 5.71 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 22/8 K/BB ratio across 17 1/3 innings (24 appearances) this past season for the Diamondbacks. The 32-year-old righty, who threw his slider nearly 90 percent of the time last year in Arizona, will bolster New York’s bullpen depth as a low-leverage innings-eater.
  • SF Relief Pitcher #68
    Cruz was non-tendered by the Giants earlier this month, but quickly wound up re-signing with San Francisco as extra organizational relief depth. The 23-year-old righty has yet to reach the majors and struggled mightily this past season at Double-A Richmond.
  • NYM Shortstop #60
    Mauricio will take the field at the hot corner for the Tigers del Licey this offseason as he prepares to compete next spring for a spot on New York’s season-opening roster. The 22-year-old prospect turned heads in his late-season debut during the 2023 campaign, posting two homers and seven steals in 26 games for the Mets down the home stretch. He’ll generate plenty of buzz next spring as a late-round sleeper candidate with a strong performance in Grapefruit League action.
  • CWS Relief Pitcher #61
    Padilla has been shipped to the minors after passing through waivers unclaimed to free up a spot on Chicago’s 40-man roster. There’s no corresponding roster move at this time, but it could be a precursor to a potential trade or signing.
  • FA Center Fielder #51
    Haseley went unclaimed on waivers after being designated for assignment earlier this week following Chicago’s decision to ink veteran infielder Paul DeJong to a one-year pact. The 27-year-old should be able to latch on somewhere else this offseason as a reserve outfielder.
  • SD Relief Pitcher
    The deal presumably also includes an invitation to spring training. The 26-year-old righty, who was non-tendered earlier this month, sipped a quick cup of coffee with San Diego this past season, making one lone late-September relief appearance. He’ll continue to serve as extra organizational relief depth after compiling a sparkling 2.81 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 110/44 K/BB ratio across 83 1/3 innings (35 appearances, nine starts) last year for Triple-A El Paso.
