  • FA Starting Pitcher #17
    That’s what we’re talking about. Ohtani and his representatives have played the situation close to the vest, but we know that the Dodgers met with him (thanks, Dave Roberts) and that he also visited the Blue Jays’ facility in Dunedin, Florida. Beyond that, not much has leaked out about the situation, though the Cubs and Giants have been mentioned and the Angels can’t be ruled out. One thing we do know is that Ohtani is poised to land a contract in excess of $500 million, which would top Mike Trout’s $426 million deal as the largest in MLB history. Stay tuned.
  • FA Relief Pitcher #52
    López represents yet another relatively low-risk gamble for newly-minted Mets president of baseball operations David Stearns as he aims to significantly overhaul the club’s bullpen mix. The 30-year-old right-hander owns an extensive track record of success as a high-leverage specialist, including an All-Star Game appearance back in 2022 as Baltimore’s closer, but struggled mightily this past season to an inflated 5.95 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 49/22 K/BB ratio across 59 innings (61 appearances) between the Twins, Marlins and Orioles.
  • NYM First Baseman #20
    Alonso isn’t set to reach free agency until 2025, but a long-term contract extension to keep him in New York doesn’t appear imminent. It’s worth noting that there’s still plenty of time for the two sides to negotiate, but there have been some significant changes over the last few months with David Stearns taking over the Mets’ front office and Alonso hiring Scott Boras as his new agent.
  • Hou Catcher #7
    Caratini will serve as burgeoning slugger Yainer Diaz’s primary caddy for at least the next two seasons. The 30-year-old backstop posted a .711 OPS with seven homers across 226 plate appearances this past season for the Brewers.
  • Hou Relief Pitcher #46
    The deal presumably also includes an invitation to spring training. The 32-year-old righty struggled in five relief appearances this past season for the Dodgers, but the Astros must see some potential here as a reclamation project. The hard-throwing reliever holds a serviceable 4.75 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 209/71 K/BB ratio across 193 1/3 innings (190 appearances) in the big leagues since 2018, with nearly all of those outings coming as a member of the Nationals.
  • NYY Right Fielder #99
    Judge missed two months this past season when he suffered a torn ligament in his right big toe when he crashed into the right-field wall at Dodger Stadium back on June 4. Fortunately, he managed to avoid offseason surgery and is expected to be back at full strength heading into spring training. The 31-year-old middle-of-the-order masher, who will be a first-round selection next spring in all fantasy formats, is expected to serve as New York’s Opening Day center fielder following the acquisitions of corner outfielders Juan Soto and Alex Verdugo.
  • NYY Left Fielder #22
    Cashman acknowledged that Soto could be a short-term acquisition, but added that the generational on-base machine makes them significantly better for 2024. There’s always a possibility that the two sides could agree to an extension prior to the outset of the regular season, but those odds decrease substantially if he makes it to Opening Day without a lucrative long-term commitment from New York.
  • Oak Relief Pitcher
    Correa spent the last six years in the Cubs’ minor league system before latching on with the Reds in late August after being released. The 24-year-old righty finished this past season with an underwhelming 7.59 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 39/23 K/BB ratio across 32 innings (30 appearances) between the Double-A and Triple-A levels. He’s merely extra minor league relief depth for the Athletics heading into 2024.
  • INT Starting Pitcher
    Heyman reported that the Red Sox had also talked with Eduardo Rodriguez about coming back to Boston before the veteran signed with Arizona, but Boston preferred to wait on decisions from Yoshinobu Yamamoto and Jordan Montgomery before turning their attention to other starting pitchers. Boston has also been linked to right-hander Lucas Giolito, so it’s clear that they have a keen interest in upgrading their rotation this winter and are hopeful that one of Yamamoto or Montgomery will be a key part of that. If not, Imanaga figures to be one of their top targets after the 30-year-old lefty posted a 2.80 ERA and a 174/24 K/BB ratio over 148 innings last season in Japan.
  • KC Relief Pitcher #66
    Long emerged as a solid bullpen option for the Giants back in 2022, posting a 3.61 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 33/14 K/BB ratio across 42 1/3 innings which included six starts and 22 relief appearances. He was unable to keep that momentum going last year in Oakland, registering a 5.60 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, and 32/21 K/BB ratio in 45 innings. Just 28 years old, Long had enjoyed success in the Giants minor league system, so he will be hoping to recapture some of that in another fresh start.
