Good morning baseball!
Here’s a roundup of everything going on in the National League Central.
- The White Sox signed Peter Bourjos, and it seems like he has a good chance of earning a roster spot.
- How would the free agents stars of yesteryear fair in today’s market?
- At least one team has offered Travis Wood a major league contract, though that unidentified team wants Wood to serve as a starting pitcher.
- We’re going to see a Tigers rebuild soon...eventually...maybe speed that up a bit, guys?
- The Royals sign Brandon Moss to a two-year deal.
- Greg Holland has officially signed a one-year deal with the Rockies.
- Kansas City has become even more interested in free agent starter Jason Hammel following the sudden passing of Yordano Ventura.
- Speaking of Ventura, Danny Duffy is buying memorabilia of his fallen teammate to give to Yordano’s mother. While the gesture is heartwarming, it can’t help but tear you to pieces at the same time.
- The Twins, Indians and Blue Jays are among the clubs interested in free agent reliever Craig Breslow.
- Los Angeles signed Ike Davis to a minor league deal.
- The Mets are interested in trading for Vizcaino.
- The Cubs signed Manny Parra to a minor league deal, the club announced.
