Good morning baseball fans. Happy Monday! Only three days until Thanksgiving is upon us here in the United States, but the baseball world keeps moving.
The big news from yesterday is that the Dodgers have found their next manager. Padres bench coach Dave Roberts will be staying in the division, but managing the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Orioles and Reds have talked about a deal involved outfielder Jay Bruce.
Bruce is a strong candidate to be traded this off-season by a Reds organization that is expected to be very active in trading away key veterans. After dealing Johnny Cueto andMike Leake at July's non-waiver trade deadline, the Reds are known to be aggressively shopping Bruce and closer Aroldis Chapman to teams in advance of the Winter Meetings.
Baltimore is likely to be active on the market for outfield help this winter, less than a year after losing Nick Markakis and Nelson Cruz to free agency. The O's are known to be looking into reunions with free agents Gerardo Parra and Chris Davis, and may also have some interest in re-acquiring Markakis from the Braves.
The Washington Nationals have joined the group trying to sign Darren O'Day and they find themselves atop the pack in the hunt for the reliever.
