Good morning baseball fans! The stoves are letting lukewarm and gosh darnit, we’re hopeful.

Here’s a roundup of what’s going on in the American League West.

  • The Rockies’ are keeping tabs on Edwin Encarnacion and Mark Trumbo, like literally everyone else in the league.
  • Cleveland has signed Chris Colabello to a minor-league contract.
  • The Padres have caught the nostalgia bug apparently, and are discussing signing Jake Peavy.
  • The Phillies traded minor leaguer Josh Tobias for Boston pitcher Clay Buchholz and we’re only excited because this is what’s keeping the stove even a little warm. But uh, best of luck to the Phillies?
