Rumor Roundup: The Ace Chase, the Rays' Face, and Some Chase Waste

0

Chris Mosch

Headley could benefit from Ramirez and Sandoval coming off the market, Lester is still expected to end up back in Boston, and the Rays might be zeroing in on a skipper.

Indians to get in on the Chase Headley sweepstakes?
The general consensus is that the Indians defense was awful last season. They ranked 25th in defensive efficiency and finished dead last in both DRS and UZR.

One of the players responsible for Cleveland’s defensive woes was third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall, who cost the Indians over seven runs on defense by FRAA and graded out as even worse by other metrics. Despite Chisenhall’s breakout season at the plate, Cleveland appears to be looking to upgrade defensively at the hot corner as they are “among several teams who have shown an interest” in Chase Headley, according to MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince.

Rumor Roundup: The Ideas That Dayton Moore Toys With

3

Chris Mosch

Where the Royals might look for offense, where Jon Lester will find enough suitors to start a bidding war, and why Dan Haren might retire.

Billy Butler is headed west for Oakland and Nori Aoki is reportedly seeking a three-year deal on the open market. For the Royals, this means that if they aren’t willing to pony up for the Japanese outfielder, they’ll find themselves with two bat-first positions to fill one year after finishing last in the American League in True Average.

CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reported yesterday that with Butler in Kansas City’s rearview mirror, the club is expected to focus on Torii Hunter for the free outfield spot. Ervin Santana and Francisco Liriano are the reported targets on the starting pitcher market.

Rumor Roundup: Are the Marlins Stanton Pat?

3

Chris Mosch

Why more rumors are popping up in Miami, and where Alexei Ramirez might go.

Marlins not done after extending Stanton?
Even after giving Giancarlo Stanton the richest contract in professional sports history, the Marlins might still have some financial flexibility, at least in the short-term future.

ESPN’s Jayson Stark wrote yesterday that Stanton’s record contract with the Marlins is heavily backloaded, paying him $107 million over the first six years of the deal and $218 million over the next seven if he chooses not to opt out. His reasoning for structuring his contract in such a way appears to be the desire for the Marlins to have enough financial flexibility to build a contending team before his opt-out clause in 2020.
