  1. Scouting Cuban defector Dayron Varona

    Keith Law

    Cuban defector Dayron Varona worked out in front of about 70 scouts from almost all MLB clubs on Tuesday morning in Delray Beach, Florida, the first time these scouts had seen him live except for a few who saw him play one game against Team USA in 20...

  2. Atlanta cleans up in Gattis trade

    Keith Law

    In dealing a trio of prospects for Evan Gattis, I really don't understand what the Astros are doing. The prospect depth they have in their system could allow them to acquire a player of a much higher caliber than Gattis, preferably a younger one as w...

  3. A's build infield with Zobrist, Escobar

    Keith Law

    Oakland continues to try to maintain its contender status for 2015, despite the loss of two major rotation pieces, adding an entire middle infield in one shot by acquiring Ben Zobrist and Yunel Escobar from Tampa Bay for John Jaso and minor leaguers ...

  4. Yankees rebuild pen the right way

    Keith Law

    The Yankees are overhauling their bullpen the right way. They've only spent money on one outside reliever, Andrew Miller, a high-risk guy due to lack of track record but who was among the best in baseball in 2014, and are building the rest of their b...

  5. Byrd deal makes sense for Phils, not Reds

    Keith Law

    The Phillies refused to begin a rebuilding process in July when they needed to take advantage of the market for several of their players, but they've committed to it now, having traded Jimmy Rollins, Antonio Bastardo and now Marlon Byrd, clearing pay...

  6. 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...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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; ...

  9. 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...

  10. 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...

  11. 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...

  12. 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 ...

  13. 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 ...

  14. 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 ...

  15. 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...

  16. 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...
