Good morning baseball fans!

The big news of the weekend obviously is the Mets signing Yoenis Cespedes to a three-year deal, and the details of the contract can be found here.

Here is the MLB Week-in-Review.

The Diamondbacks are trying to move second baseman Aaron Hill.

Arizona has a desire to move Hill, but as Heyman points out, it will not be easy considering the names still available on the market.

Kendrick, Ian Desmond and Jimmy Rollins are all still available, and the market for infielders has yet to fully develop. Hill is also relatively expensive (he is due $12 million in 2016) and is coming off of a pair of down years offensively.

If the Diamondbacks are truly as open to trading Hill as it seems, the club might be forced to pay at least a portion of his remaining contract.

The MLB Blog Review has a ton of content from over the weekend from all around the baseball world.

Houston is exploring the possibility of signing Doug Fister.

Although the Astros would likely benefit from the addition of another starter, the club likely has enough minor league depth to have success without another free agent signing.

Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh have appeared to bounce back from rough starts to their professional careers, and the Astros have depth in Scott Feldman and Dan Straily.

Straily is out of options and if another starter is added, Feldman might have to become a long reliever.
