Transaction Analysis: An Ax To Sign

2

R.J. Anderson

The Rockies get a couple big-league pitchers, Steve Lombardozzi's brings back ever-smaller returns, and some backup catchers are employed again.

Ryan Parker

Chris Davis' 2014 was obviously worse than his 2013, but were there mechanical changes that led to the poor results?

Rumor Roundup: Everth Cabrera is a Wanted Man

3

Daniel Rathman

The Blue Jays might be interested in an infielder with legal troubles, while the Orioles might demand a substantial return if they let Dan Duquette go.

Jays might look at Everth Cabrera to play second base
The Jays have a new catcher, a new third baseman, a new first baseman, a new left fielder, and possibly a new second baseman, if Devon Travis, who came over from the Tigers for Anthony Gose, wins the job out of spring training. For all of general manager Alex Anthopoulos’ efforts, though, the keystone might still come down to a competition between Ryan Goins, Maicer Izturis, and Steve Tolleson, if Travis—whose prospect stock varies depending on whose opinion you seek—fails to impress in Grapefruit League play.

Adding another veteran option with upside might thus be tempting. The Jays have some recent history of buying low on players with makeup concerns (Colby Rasmus) or performance-enhancing drug ties (Melky Cabrera), and CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman tweeted Thursday that they might be prepared to go bargain hunting in the same bin.

Pitching Backward: The Cost of Being on Baseball's Bad Side

13

Jeff Long

What losing the All-Star game means for Baltimore.

Back in July 2013, news leaked that Baltimore was interested in hosting the 2016 MLB All-Star Game. The O’s had discussed internally the idea of hosting the multi-day event with the hopes of showcasing Camden Yards during its 25th season. The last time the O’s hosted the Midsummer Classic was in 1993, and early media reports noted the stars seemingly aligning in Baltimore’s favor:

The site generally alternates between National League and American League cities, and with Cincinnati hosting in 2015, the AL would likely be up the following year.

An agent reflects on his takes.

I'm taking a step away from the game today to write a note directly to my readers. This was such a special year for me professionally and personally. I am happily married, work was just incredible, the column has taken off, and I just wanted to thank all of you, the great readers of BP, for allowing this column to exist. I appreciate the interaction so much, and you have no idea how much you all really do mean to me. Thank you.

Read the full article...

The Rays have excess infielders, and do the Orioles have a Colby Rasmus deficiency?

After signing Asdrubal Cabrera, Rays open to moving Zobrist and Escobar
Prior to yesterday, the Rays fielded a perfectly acceptable double play tandem in Yunel Escobar and Ben Zobrist. But after reportedly signing Asdrubal Cabrera to a one-year, $8 million deal, a crowded infield that also included Nick Franklin and Logan Forsythe is even more congested. Thus it appears likely that either Escobar or Zobrist will be on the move.

In the wake of the Cabrera signing, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports tweeted that the Rays are “open to trading Zobrist and/or Yunel Escobar.” There is the possibility that Tampa Bay could simply decide to hold on to its glut of middle infielders, with the versatile Zobrist getting more regular playing time in the outfield, but Rosenthal notes that this appears to be an unlikely final outcome.

Delmon Young re-ups, Tim Stauffer goes north, Jordan Walden extends, and the Braves add a good reliever and a bad catcher.

Transaction Analysis: Royals Bank on a Rios Rebound

4

R.J. Anderson, Ben Carsley and Nick Shlain

The Royals add another aging bat, the Marlins hope a move to first keeps Morse healthy, the Rockies add bench depth, the Yankees keep some rotation depth, the Cubs and Orioles build pen depth, and a low-risk, but possibly not-so-high-reward arm, lands in San Diego.

Rumor Roundup: Yoenis Cespedes Is Always Good, Fit

4

Daniel Rathman

The Orioles are interested in Cespedes, the Twins are interested in the first name that should probably come to your mind, and the Rule 5 draft's script is leaking.

Orioles might be a “good fit” for Yoenis Cespedes
Somewhere, a member of the Cespedes Family BBQ duo is jumping for joy. According to WEEI’s Rob Bradford, the Orioles are interested in obtaining the Cuban outfielder from the Red Sox.

Rumor Roundup: Interested Teams Are Way In On Chen

5

Daniel Rathman

Dan Duquette's been fielding unsolicited calls for his reliable no. 3, while the Diamondbacks owners reportedly nixed a done deal.

Widespread interest in Wei-Yin Chen
With Kevin Gausman still yet to endure a full season of major-league work and Ubaldo Jimenez’ role uncertain, the Orioles aren’t exactly swimming in rotation depth. But that’s not stopping other teams from phoning Dan Duquette about one of his starters.
