Good morning baseball fans!

The Cleveland Indians signed right-hander Josh Tomlin to a two-year, $5.5 million extension.

Where will Howie Kendrick end up? Our own Matt Goldman tried to answer that.

According to Steamer, and recent history, Kendrick would represent a significant upgrade over what Arizona's current second basemen are projected for (almost exactly two wins). While Hill is owed $12 million for the 2016 season, the Diamondbacks have already committed themselves to fielding a winning team, and with a lucrative TV deal in their back pockets, they should spend on Kendrick.

The Yankees have inked catcher Carlos Corporan to a minor-league deal.

Bronson Arroyo's comeback tour will take place in Washington, as he has signed a minor-league deal with the Nationals.

Tampa likes Ian Desmond, but they are unwilling to forfeit a draft pick in order to sign him.

If Desmond's market continues to be slow and the Rays are able to get a deal that they can not pass up, the club may decide that the addition of Desmond outweighs the cost of the lost draft pick. If Desmond remains a free agent after the draft in June, the Rays are likely to be very interested in signing him to a deal.

Tampa Bay currently has newcomer Brad Miller as its protected starting shortstop, though Miller's versatility would allow him to play elsewhere if the Rays were to add a shortstop. Asdrubal Cabrera manned the position for the club last season, but has since signed with the Mets on a 2-year deal.
