  • 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.
  • 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.
  • KC Relief Pitcher #71
    It’s a bit surprising that Duffey wasn’t able to find a major league contract this offseason. The 32-year-old only pitched two MLB innings this past season and posted a 4.91 ERA with the Twins in 44 innings in 2022; however, he had previously had three strong years as a key cog in the Twins’ bullpen, posting an ERA of 3.18 or better in each season. In 2023, he posted a 3.77 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 53/23 K/BB ratio across 45 1/3 innings with Triple-A Iowa, so there’s a decent chance that he can make the Royals bullpen with a good showing in spring training.
  • KC Third Baseman #10
    Brosseau began the 2023 season with the Brewers, hitting .205/.256/.397 in 78 plate appearances before being sent to the minors and then designated for assignment. He then finished the season with the Chiba Lotte Marines in the Korean Baseball Organization. At 29-years-old, Brosseau will now get another shot with the Royals after hitting .242/.313/.428 with 26 homers and seven steals across 241 MLB games since 2019. Brosseau has been particularly adept against lefties in his career, slashing .265/.326/.464 with a .199 ISO in 347 career at-bats, so perhaps his best path to being on the MLB roster again will be as a platoon bat against lefties.
  • Atl Relief Pitcher #68
    Perdomo is now the third reliever the Braves have re-signed to a split contract, which is a convertible contract that has two salaries - one for time in the minors and one for time in the majors. This is important for Perdomo since he had Tommy Johnson surgery in October and is likely to miss the majority, if not all, of the 2024 season so the Braves will not need to pay him the MLB salary. The 29-year-old reliever posted a 3.72 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and a 44/11 K/BB ratio over 29 innings in 30 appearances with the Pirates during the 2023 season before getting injured.
  • Atl First Baseman #12
    White was acquired by the Braves as part of the Jarred Kelenic deal early on Monday morning. The 27-year-old was included for Seattle to achieve salary relief, and he hasn’t played a big league game since 2021 when he hit .144/.202/.237 in 30 games with two home runs and a 30 percent strikeout rate. His removal from Atlanta’s 40-man roster enabled them to sign left-hander Angel Perdomo.
  • FA Center Fielder #22
    Both NL West teams are said to be sniffing around the market for a defensive-minded center fielder, and the 29-year-old Bader remains one of the better defensive center fielders in the game, posting an Outs Above Average grade of 9 in 2023. He also presents some offensive upside as well, collecting a career-high 20 steals in just 98 games last year, while also lowering his strikeout rate to a career-low 17.2 percent. Injuries have always stood in the way of Bader truly breaking out, as the outfielder has only played 100 games once since 2019; however, his talent remains intriguing and he would likely slide into a starting role if he ends up with either the Giants or Padres.
  • INT Left Fielder #33
    The 29-year-old Cordero played 24 games for the Yankees in 2023, hitting just .188/.211/.478 with six home runs but also 25 strikeouts and just two walks. In his seven year MLB career, Cordero hit .217/.283/.395 with 27 home runs in 251 games to go along with a 276/88 K/BB ratio. Cordero joins former Yankees RHP Albert Abreu, who also signed with Seibu yesterday.
