Good morning baseball fans!

Here is a roundup of everything going around in the American League East.

  • Rougned Odor and the Rangers haven’t gained much ground on an extension.
  • It’s only a few days into March and the Dodgers are already accumulating injuries.
  • Is 2017 really going to be the year of the Houston Astros or is that just what we’re saying about the 29 teams as well?
  • There are no current talks between Eric Hosmer and the Royals, so we’re feeling a little nervous over here.
  • ICYMI: Mets prospect Luis Guillorme is probably a ninja in disguise.
  • Will the real Eduardo Rodriguez please stand up.
  • Jose Abreu’s story is much more than a quirky tweet about him eating a passport.
  • Even Brad Ausmus admits that the Tigers needs some improvement.
