MLB rumors: Phillies president hedges with comments on Machado, Harper; Pirates into Tulowitzki

The season is marching, and thanks to relatively slow winter nights we have many big names left on the board. To give you an idea of ​​the buzz that's out there on Monday, we're here to round up the rumors of all the remarkable trade and free agencies.

The season is marching, and thanks to relatively slow winter nights we have many big names left on the board. To give you an idea of ​​the buzz that’s out there on Monday, we’re here to round up the rumors of all the remarkable trade and free agencies. As always, our Free Agent Tracker is a great way to find out what’s already happening on that front. Now let’s jump in.

Dodgers want Harper, but there’s a catch

Can the dodgers be on the edge of the Bryce Harper derby? Here is an interesting nugget from Ken Rosenthal’s reading collection in The Athletic …

The dodgers are often reputed to be in on Harper, but the reality, according to major league sources, is that they do not want him on a long-term record deal. A short-term agreement with high average pay and opt-outs may have more appeal, but such an agreement is likely to create luxury tax for Dodger’s 201

9, and the team already has too many outfielders.

As for the outfield logjam, Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp have been the semi-frequent topic of rumor rumors this offseason, and there is still plenty of time to clear space for likes like Harper. The economic aspect is a little less certain. It is possible that Harper would be open to a short-term business saying he broke the record for average annual value and, as Rosenthal’s notes, gave him one or more opt-outs along the way. Harper is also a native of Las Vegas, and playing for the flagship franchise from the west coast may have some appeal. In fact, such a pairing would decide whether Harper is willing to take away $ 300 million or more in exchange for entering the market in another season or three. At this point it seems unlikely.

Worrying comments to Philly fans?

There is an article in MLB.com that encompasses comments from Phillies president Andy MacPhail that can be interpreted as preparing fans for the possibility that the team does not land one of the two big names free agents this offseason: Manny Machado and Bryce Harper.

For complete quotes, MacPhail says things like:

  • There are other ways for Phillies to improve this offseason than signing one of these two.
  • They have to think about future offseasons instead of just this offseason.
  • The offseason does not matter during the season, instead, it’s important gains and losses.

Also contains Todd Zolecki of phillies.com that Phillies prefer Machado over Harper and that the Phillies did not meet Harper in Las Vegas during the winter’s meetings while others did.

Pirates interested in Tulo

Even from the Rosenthal notes column, the Pirates are said to be among the teams interested in veteran shortstop Troy Tulowitzki.

Tulowitzki was recently released by Blue Jays, which means that Jaysna Jays will collect the big remaining $ 38 million on his contract and his next team will owe him only the league minimum for 2019. Tulo missed the last season with brain damage, and he will go into his 33-year-old. With that said, a return to something like his 2017 form (102 OPS + in 131 games) would make him a very valuable addition.

In addition to the pirates, Yankees and Cubs report that they have at least a declining interest in Tulowitzki.

Angels on Grandal

GM Billy Eppler takes a new whack on putting a fighting roster around Mike Forell. While the angels have not done much yet this offseason, they can fix something …

Yasmani Grandal comes from a 2018 season for Dodgers where he hit .241 / .349 / .466 with 24 home runs and 71 unintentional walks in 140 games / 518 plates. Grandal, 30, owns a OPS + of 115 for his career, which is strong production for a prisoner, and he is also considered a plush increase.

Last year, angel-in-law – mostly Martin Maldonado and Jose Briceno – beat up a weak OPS of just .628, so Grandal would profile as a major upgrade with the bat.

Manny Machado, a free agent who may be in line to enter more than $ 300 million, begins his Monday tour. First, White Sox is followed by Yankees and then Phillies. There may also be one or more “mystery teams” involved. You can read more here .

Mets resigned Thor-for-Realmuto trade

Following agree on terms with Wilson Ramos, Mets is very likely no longer interested in trade for Marlin’s catcher J.T. Realmuto. For a while, the rumors of Realmuto-to-Mets were warm and heavy. A headline-moving version had the right Noah Syndergaard who went to Yankees and Realmuto landing in Queens as part of a three-way swap. On Monday, this wrinkle was revealed from these conversations …

“NS” would of course be Syndergaard. Mets, Andy Martino reports, passed this opportunity. Metsna according to new GM Brodie Van Wagenen appears to be challenger in winter and in terms of carpet 2019, Van Wagenen probably decided that Syndergaard plus a freelance catcher meant more than Realmuto plus a freelance starter. It’s really a defensive attitude.

Citizens Harrison has “common interest”

Citizens have had several meetings with free agent Josh Harrison, reports Washington Post .

With the departure of Daniel Murphy at the end of last season, the citizens have an opening at the second base. Internal options like Howie Kendrick and Wilmer Difo could hold the fort until Carter Kieboom appeared. Kieboom has only played 62 games in Double-A and has never tasted Triple-A – but interest in Harrison is a sure sign of Nats looking to add another option to others.

Harrison, 31, hit .250 / .293 / .363 last season, but he is two-time all-star with good positional versatility and has had some great seasons.

Mets signs Davis to the minor league deal

Mets announced that they signed outfielder Rajai Davis into a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. He is 38 years old and hit .244 / .278 / .281 last season, so this is simply a deep signature.
