  1. Eovaldi durable, but not a finished product

    Keith Law

    The New York Yankees and Miami Marlins executed a surprising swap on Friday morning, with the Yankees sending erstwhile second baseman Martin Prado to Miami for right-handed starter Nate Eovaldi, as part of a five-player deal. Eovaldi is a durable...

  2. Justin Upton a smart bet for Padres

    Keith law

    The Padres just keep making transactions -- I feel like they're about to get in a waiver-wire war over Tim Pugh -- to the point where they seem to have too many cooks in their lineup, but acquiring Justin Upton is a smart bet on a great athlete who h...

  3. Derek Norris deal a win for both sides

    Keith Law

    The Oakland Athletics and San Diego Padres, both among the more hyperactive front offices so far this offseason, made a swap on Thursday night that managed to address a critical weakness on both sides. The A's probably get more value in the end, but ...

  4. Nationals make out like bandits in trade

    Keith Law

    Today's three-team, 11-player trade was a rarity for its focus on young players, both major leaguers and prospects, with just two backup catchers as the veterans in the deal. The San Diego Padres got something they wanted, but at a substantial cost; ...

  5. Astros make a nice pickup; Royals don't

    Keith Law

    Jed Lowrie has agreed to terms with the Houston Astros and will be paid about what I expected, getting three years and $23 million with a fourth-year option for another $5 million. It's a deal that underpays him based on expected performance but pric...

  6. Chase Headley a solid re-sign for Yankees

    Keith Law

    The Yankees have all kinds of issues with their infield right now, and while re-signing Chase Headley -- which they did today for four years and $52 million -- doesn't solve the age problem, he's a very good (and slightly underrated, at least by fans...

  7. Cabrera an overpaid upgrade for Chicago

    Keith Law

    I've liked what the Chicago White Sox have done so far this offseason, as they've repositioned the major league club to make it more competitive while the Detroit Tigers, winners of four straight American League Central titles, seem to be sliding bac...

  8. Moving Rollins the right move for Philly

    Keith Law

    The Philadelphia Phillies threw up the black flag about a year or so too late, but appear to be finally acknowledging that their major league roster was too damaged to repair and that it was time to begin the process of weeding out the old guard. In ...

  9. Mat Latos could be bargain for Marlins

    Keith Law

    The Reds needed to clear some payroll to be able to make more changes to the major league roster, and moving Mat Latos, which they did Thursday, seemed to be a priority given dissatisfaction in Cincinnati with his makeup and the shoulder issues that ...

  10. Kemp's not cheap, but Padres get a bat

    Keith Law

    The Padres' 2014 offense was one of the worst in big league history, and acquiring Matt Kemp is a huge boost toward fixing that weakness (although I'm not sure that any one player, even Mike Trout, could do that by himself). Padres left fielders hit ...

  11. Red Sox, Tigers address needs Thursday

    Keith Law

    The Red Sox's need for starting pitching drove them to trade for Wade Miley on Wednesday and now has led them to cash in some of their outfield surplus to land Rick Porcello, the somewhat forgotten member of the vaunted Tigers' rotation. Porcello rea...

  12. A rebuild of Boston's rotation begins

    Keith Law

    The Red Sox need major league starters badly, front-line guys and mid-rotation horses, preferably with some years of control involved. Left-hander Wade Miley has three years left, all arbitration years, and has thrown right around 200 innings in each...

  13. Dodgers' creativity prevails Wednesday

    Keith Law

    The Dodgers created an opening at second base with their trade of Dee Gordon to the Miami Marlins early in the day Wednesday, and filling it with Howie Kendrick was a quick one-or two-win upgrade over what they could have reasonably expected from Gor...

  14. Dodgers did well to trade Dee Gordon

    Keith Law

    The Los Angeles Dodgers need a shortstop, so of course they traded their second baseman. Meanwhile, the Miami Marlins needed a second baseman and got one, but I think the price they paid exceeds what they got in return. In Dee Gordon, the Marlins ...

  15. Reds shopping Mat Latos

    Doug Mittler

    ESPN Insider Keith Law is hearing from a source close to Walt Jocketty that the Reds GM is highly interested in trading starting pitcher Mat Latos, who is set to become a free agent after the 2015 season. Teams have also inquired about starter Mike L...

  16. 'Lovable losers' are winning this offseason

    Keith Law

    I said in early August the Cubs were two very good starting pitchers from contention in 2015. Well, they just landed one of those two starters, and given the alternatives out there in free agency and on the trade market, this was the guy they more or...
