MLB winter meetings:

latest news at page 1:
1
    Sometime around the midpoint of the baseball owners’ nearly two billion dollar spending spree at the Winter Meetings in San Diego this week, Billy Eppler got off the phone in the Mets war room and announced to his troops that the earth had just shifted. Leading up to the meetings, the Mets general manager had devised numerous game plans with his owner Steve Cohen on how to fulfill all of their needs — center field, starting pitching, bullpen — in as prudent a way as possible. They had all but conceded losing Brandon Nimmo to a bidding war that seemed headed for more years than they felt comfortable. But then Hal Steinbrenner blinked on a ninth year for Aaron Judge and coughed up $146.5 million more than his superstar slugger had originally turned down back in March, and Phillies general partner John Middleton, who had earlier signed Taijuan Walker, the Mets’ No. 4 starter last year, for a whopping $72 million over four years, fulfilled his quest for shortstop Trea Turner with an eye-popping 11-year, $300 million deal. Mind you,...

This week’s MLB Power Rankings will take a look at the last week or so for all 30 teams. Gathered together for the Winter Meetings, it was a chance for more action in the hot stove. Some teams made splashes. Some put their feet in the water. Others made the excuse that they didn’t have a swimsuit and remained silent. Plenty of clubs hopped over their opponents while some fell behind. How does each MLB team measure up following the Winter Meetings?30) MLB Power Rankings: Oakland AthleticsThere will come a day when the Oakland Athletics change their logo to a white flag. The team is as non-competitive as it gets. Still in the hunt to trade Sean Murphy, we can only question if finally dealing away their desirable young catcher is a win for them in the MLB Power Rankings or a loss. We’ll have to wait to see what they get back.29) MLB Power Rankings:...

    MLB commissioner Rob Manfred held a wide-ranging news conference on Tuesday at the MLB Winter Meetings SAN DIEGO — Touching on topics ranging from the future of the Oakland A’s to the impact of big contracts handed out to Trea Turner and Justin Verlander on the first day of the MLB Winter Meetings, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred held court with members of the media on Tuesday here in San Diego. Here are some of the big highlights of Manfred’s media session that lasted just over 20 minutes. Rob Manfred shared plenty at the MLB Winter Meetings in San DiegoOn the Oakland A’s and their potential relocation to Las Vegas“We’re past any reasonable timeline for the situation in Oakland to be resolved. If you read the Collective Bargaining Agreement, you know there is an actual trigger in there, I think it’s like the 15th of January, 2024, and they need to have a deal by then, so this is a very, very important year. “If Oakland wants to keep the A’s, they need to figure out a way to get a...
    (Photo by Sarah Stier/Getty Images) MLB Winter Meetings continue on Tuesday in San Diego, and the focus could be on more big names to make their free agent decision. SAN DIEGO — Monday at the MLB Winter Meetings saw Justin Verlander and Trea Turner each find new homes thanks to large free agent contracts. Could there be more offseason dominoes to fall on Tuesday?

    SAN DIEGO — While Farhan Zaidi met with reporters in the Giants’ suite here Monday evening, his top target of these winter meetings was on the other side of the country, taking in Monday Night Football in Tampa. Turns out Aaron Judge did attend an NFL game this week; it just wasn’t the 49ers-Dolphins game, despite a debunked image of him in a Niners jersey swirling on social media. However, Judge’s presence on the sidelines shouldn’t weigh nearly as much as his attendance in free-agent meetings. Zaidi confirmed that the Giants hosted the reigning AL MVP and Northern California native and said their conversations were “continuing” but provided few more details about their negotiations with the player who tops the wishlist of all 30 teams here. More than 30 team employees contributed to their pitch to the top free-agent slugger, Zaidi said. “I feel good about what we’ve done process-wise,” Zaidi said of the Giants’ pursuit of Judge, who reportedly has an eight-year, $300 million offer in hand from the Yankees. “Obviously some of it is beyond our control. …...
    SAN DIEGO — It was barely past breakfast Monday when incessant hum of activity in the lobby of the Manchester Grand Hyatt here was interrupted by the buzzing of notifications: the first domino of these winter meetings had fallen. By lunchtime, two of the top three starting pitchers and one of the top shortstops were off the free agent market. The Giants, expected to be active this week, didn’t reel in any of them. But neither did the Dodgers, which can be chalked up as a win for San Francisco and everyone else competing in the NL West arms race. Trea Turner’s smooth slides found a new home in Philadelphia. The Phillies lured Turner, a Florida native thought to prefer playing for an East Coast team, away from the Dodgers with a reported 11-year, $300 million contract. Justin Verlander, the reigning AL Cy Young winner and thought to be a target of the Dodgers, who are said to prefer short-term, high-dollar deals, opted to team up with Max Scherzer in New York. Verlander takes take the rotation spot vacated by...

    Beyond a few additions — and subtractions — on the waiver wire, the start to the offseason has been quiet for the Orioles. That could change next week once the Baltimore brass arrives in San Diego at the winter meetings. This will be the first winter meetings held in person since 2019, when executive vice president and general manager Mike Elias completed his first full season leading the Orioles. In that edition, Baltimore hardly made much of a ripple on the hot stove, as the rebuild was still in its early stages. This upcoming winter meetings, however, could have a different tint. After a trade-deadline sell-off of closer Jorge López and first baseman Trey Mancini, Elias said the Orioles will undergo “liftoff from here.” How steep the liftoff remains to be seen — although this week could be telling. Ahead of the winter meetings, The Baltimore Sun’s Orioles reporters, Nathan Ruiz and Andy Kostka, give their expert opinions about how the next week and the team’s offseason might progress. 1. What is the Orioles’ top winter meetings priority? Kostka: At...
    Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports Judging the buzz surrounding the MLB Winter Meetings, Monday could be a very busy day here in San Diego. SAN DIEGO —  MLB Winter Meetings kick into high gear in San Diego today with a string of interview opportunities with team managers and management, as well as plenty of agents roaming the Manchester Grand Hyatt working toward the best deals for their clients. While the weather will be California postcard-like on the outside, a storm of activity could well be in the forecast inside the Grand Hyatt. Which teams could be buyers or sellers on Monday? Here’s a quick preview of what I’m watching here in San Diego.Three things to watch at MLB Winter Meetings on Day 2MLB rumor: Miami Marlins could be very activeWith plenty of pitching available and only the defending NL Cy Young Award winner off the block, Miami could be an active trade partner at the MLB Winter Meetings.

    Once the hotbed of offseason activity, the MLB Winter Meetings return this week for the first time in three years. All eyes will be on Farhan Zaidi and the Giants, with big pockets and ambitions, as the baseball world descends on San Diego. The Rule 5 draft returns after a year hiatus, and MLB will hold its first ever lottery for the first six picks of June’s amateur draft (the Giants, by the way, have a 0.6% chance at the No. 1 selection). Barry Bonds (Sunday, via the Contemporary Era ballot) and Duane Kuiper (Wednesday, up for the Ford C. Frick Award) will also learn their Hall of Fame fates. But the headlining act of these meetings figures to be Aaron Judge, whose decision — thought to be between the Giants and the Yankees — could come before the meetings wrap Thursday. So far it has been a quiet offseason — of 168 total free agents, 20 had signed as of Friday morning — and traditionally the crown jewel of the class, Judge this year, can set off an avalanche...
    Houston Astros lift the World Series trophy (Mandatory Credit: Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports) Which teams could be buyers and sellers at the upcoming MLB Winter Meetings in San Diego? When the 2022 MLB Winter Meetings kick off on Sunday in San Diego, thousands of MLB executives, agents, and members of the media will be in attendance, and all will be waiting to see which big-name free agents land with which teams for the 2023 season and beyond. So which teams could make an impact at the MLB Winter Meetings? Let’s look at five franchises that may not only be aggressive in their pursuits of free agent targets, but also have roster needs to address in order to boost their hopes for a deep run in the 2023 postseason.Teams to watch closely during MLB Winter Meetings: Houston AstrosYes, the team that won it all in 2022 is looking to reload to make a run at a repeat in 2023, and owner Jim Crane has already made it clear that the Astros plan to do more this offseason, even after inking Jose...
    Next1 of 3Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse The New York Yankees should be looking to make these three trades at the MLB Winter Meetings. The MLB Winter Meetings are approaching. It’s a chance for the New York Yankees to do something big. Re-signing Aaron Judge remains priority number one for the Yankees. In addition to inking him and maybe a few other free agents, the possibility of a trade looms. The Yankees may not have a major blockbuster deal in their arsenal this offseason. This shouldn’t stop them from making any of these three trades that can help bolster the roster.1) An obvious Yankees trade to make with the Marlins at the Winter MeetingsOne of Major League Baseball’s most obvious trades to make this offseason would send Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres to the Miami Marlins for pitcher Pablo Lopez. The deal helps out both squads. It’s a revisit of a rumored deal discussed over the summer. Torres remains a competent yet flawed big league player. On the Yankees roster, the trouble is fitting all the infielders...
    If the St. Louis Cardinals aren’t careful, they may miss out on a potential Yadier Molina replacement in former Cubs catcher Willson Contreras. The Cardinals were often discussed as a worst-case scenario for Cubs fans in regards to losing Willson Contreras. Yadier Molina’s retirement lined up perfectly with Contreras’ free agency, and previous trade interest, making St. Louis an intriguing potential suitor. However, the Cards haven’t been discussed much so far this offseason in line with Contreras. Could they be looking to replace Molina elsewhere, or have they dropped the ball? Per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Houston Astros have emerged as the likely favorite to land Contreras, despite the presence of Martin Maldonado at the catcher position. They view Contreras as a designated hitter. In that same column, Rosenthal mentions the Cardinals, and that finding a replacement for Molina remains their top priority. Cardinals could miss out on Willson ContrerasThis is purely hearsay, but perhaps the Cardinals would prefer a better defensive catcher, as Molina was one of the best in baseball at throwing out runners, pitch framing...

The MLB Winter Meetings could be a time when the offseason hot stove gets a little warmer. Thus far, action has been moving slowly. Teams like the St. Louis Cardinals are in a position to make some big free agent signings and maybe strike a few trades.

    Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Cody Bellinger. MLB Winter Meetings (Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports) As the countdown begins to the start of the 2022 MLB Winter Meetings in San Diego, it’s a chance to look ahead at which players could sign deals during what will be a busy week. The annual MLB Winter Meetings is always a gathering place for MLB managers, executives, and agents (as well as members of the media), and the Hot Stove usually ignites during the festivities, slated this year for December 4-7.So what players could find new homes during the MLB Winter Meetings? Let’s look at five possibilities.MLB Winter Meetings: Cody BellingerLet’s start with one of the more interesting free agents out there, former National League MVP Cody Bellinger, who was non-tendered by the Los Angeles Dodgers after his third consecutive disappointing season since earning the MVP award in 2019.

    MLB News/Rumors: Some wild and not so wild predictions for Winter Meetings week By: William Parlee December 6, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditFor the New York Yankees and the other 29 MLB teams, an extraordinary Winter Meetings week will start tomorrow. The event for owners, general managers, and field managers, this is a week that is normally as much social as it is filled with serious baseball meetings. This year there will not be deals done in the bar over a Martini, no late-night talks between GMs in posh hotel rooms. No, this year, the whole event is going to be done virtually. The talks will start tomorrow and go on until December 10th. Nevertheless, you can count on more acquisitions and trades made this week than the whole time since the World Series ended. However, don’t expect as much activity as in a normal offseason set of meetings. Teams don’t have the money this year than they normally have after huge losses caused by the coronavirus and do not have the revenue stream they usually...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball will hold its annual general managers’ meetings remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic. The league said Thursday that teams had been informed the GMs won’t meet in person. The annual November session started in the 1980s and has been a traditional time for agents to pitch their free agent clients to teams and for clubs to initiate trade talks. The session usually is held in Florida, Arizona or California. For now, the larger winter meetings remain scheduled for Dec. 6-10 in Dallas. The winter meetings include far bigger team delegations, minor league executives and baseball’s annual trade show. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press.
