Good morning, baseball fans!
Here’s a roundup of everything happening in the National League West.
- The Dodgers acquire Logan Forsythe from the Rays in exchange for Jose De Leon.
- LHP Brett Anderson inks a one-year, $3.5M deal with the Cubs pending a physical.
- The Indians were interested in free agent outfielder Jose Bautista before he signed with the Blue Jays, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe. With both Encarnacion and Bautista on the team, that would have been one tough AL Central.
- David Ross is the ultimate dad.
- Dae-ho Lee signs with the Korean Lotte Giants.
- The Padres are sinking and sadly we don’t know if there’s a good exit strategy at this point.
- The Red Sox are closing in on a deal with Drew Pomeranz, who is arbitration eligible.
- Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia changed agents because his former representative is leaving the industry.
- The Rangers are still after Mike Napoli, because it’s just too hard to let go of such a good party host.
- Tim Lincecum wants to serve as a starter for a major league team in 2017, according to Baggarrly. In related news, Santa DID get my letter because Timmy being back in baseball was all I wanted for Christmas.
- Jae-gyun Hwang and the Giants are nearing the completion of a minor league deal.
