The exhibition period is here. Still, we still have plenty of big names left on the board in the free agency, including superstar sluggers Bryce Harper and closer to Craig Kimbrel.

Let’s round up the activity for the day here.

Kimbrel can sit outside?

As mentioned in introduction, Craig Kimbrel is one of the best free agents left. If he does not soon receive an offer, he can turn to sitting. Per CBS Sports HQ MLB insider Jim Bowden, sources near Kimbrel believe he would be willing to sit out of season instead of signing a sub-market deal:

Few teams have even been rumored to have interest in Kimbrel, who has most of someone saved during their 30s. The Red Sox, his old law, has publicly ruled out a return. Meanwhile, Braves and Twins have been interested. It is unclear whether someone else is involved or will be involved in the next few weeks.

Phillies Possible for Keuchel

Much of the talk about Philadelphia Phillies so late has been about their pursuit of Bryce Harper. As it turns out, Harper is not the only free agent Phils has an interest in.

Filliers are rather a potential fit for leftist Dallas Keuchel:

Keuchel has written a 106 ERA + in the last three seasons and has an average of 173 innings per pop. He does not fit in the mold groups after checking in pots anymore – he has a low-value fast-paced ball that does not impress on the radar gun – but he has been an effective starter that can be turned into a contender’s rotation without Issue.

The Phillies have shown a willingness to spend money on their rotation. Around this time last year, they wrote Jake Arrieta, and until they extended ace Aaron Nola.

Cardinals Give Martinez Raise

Jose Martinez usually be the odd man in St. Louis where his inability to play defense has limited his starting possibilities with the Cardinals. Although it served as a trade-driving reputation over the past seven months, Martinez remains with Cardinals – and on Saturday he received a payroll after joining a two-year deal worth more than $ 3 million:

That’s not quite right Calling this an extension – the cardinals did not get any control over additional seasons and Martinez will not qualify for the free agency at the conclusion of the agreement – but it serves the purpose of keeping him stateside rather than driving more lucrative opportunities abroad.

Martinez has a career 128 OPS + and last season homered 17 times in 590 plates. He could be useful if and when the National League installs the designated hitter.

Tension winners

With Harper still available, it has been easy to overlook that there are still other free agent outfielders who deserve contracts. One of them is Denard Span.

Span, who turns 35 in a few days, is apparently more interested in spring training:

Last season, Span sent a 112 OPS + and split the season between the rays and the seamen.
