It's no secret that the White Sox aren't expected to contend this season, but individual player projections are still important.
February 11, 2017 9:28 am
It's mostly positive, except for that pitching.

Marlins fans may be done with Jeffrey Loria and Chase Utley may be going from Los Angeles to Cleveland.
Loria may have billion-dollar deal to sell Marlins
Earlier in the offseason, Mike Ozanian of
Forbes reported that Jeffrey Loria was trying to sell the Marlins for somewhere around $1.7 billion. He noted that Loria was just floating the number out there and expressed a bit of skepticism that this could actually happen given that Forbes had valued the Marlins as being worth $675 million, the second-least valuable team in baseball. So it really seemed like this was just another case of Loria doing something weird with the Marlins again. Read the full article...

George Bissell, Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre of Baseball Prospectus take a deep dive into current fantasy baseball topics. Teams might be losing potential major leaguers at the intersection of human development and player development.
As a dad of three (and soon to be two more!) I’ve seen my share of developmental milestones. I’ve watched my daughters take their first steps, say their first words, and attend their
first baseball games. I even took my oldest daughter to her first no-hitter, which also happened to be my first time seeing a no-hitter. In the ninth inning, I turned to her and, speaking more to my own sense of reverie than anything else, told her that I wished she were older so that she could really appreciate what she was seeing. Read the full article... MLB is considering strike zone changes, the Yankees are out of payroll space, and the Nationals want a closer.
Yankees open to trading veterans to clear payroll space

, Brett Gardner , and Starlin Castro this winter, Chase Headley according to Joel Sherman of the . The goal there was to clear a bit of payroll space to make a bullpen addition, but with no takers so far they’ve had to hold tight. It’s not particularly surprising that no other clubs have expressed interest in any of the trio—each has $25 million or more remaining on his contract and each is coming off a season that was lackluster at best.

Greg Holland chooses Colorado for his comeback, Jerry Blevins and Fernando Salas stay in New York, Scott Feldman looks to eat innings in Cincinnati, and Boone Logan needs context. The Pirates reshuffle their outfield, Shane Victorino postpones his 2017 return, and Jung Ho Kang prepares to enter an alcohol treatment program.
McCutchen moving to right field in 2017
The Pirates are ready to move
this season, but not to another team. Instead, they’re switching things up in the outfield, where McCutchen will shift from center field to right field, left fielder Andrew McCutchen will be stationed in center, and right fielder Starling Marte will take over duties in left field.

Ernie Banks personifies the journey many baseball fans take.
Might the Royals actually have some power in 2017?
