New York Mets and All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor agree to 10-year, $341 million deal

The New York Mets and shortstop Francisco Lindor have agreed to a 10-year, $341 million deal, a source told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Wednesday. Lindor’s deal will be the third largest based on total value in major league history, trailing only the deals for the Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout ($426.5 million) and the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Mookie Betts ($365 million). The Mets were widely expected to sign Lindor to a long-term extension after getting the four-time All-Star in a blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Indians this offseason. The negotiations became a major storyline during spring training, with new Mets owner Steve Cohen writing on Twitter last week, “What do think Lindor will accept? I’m […]

Detroit Lions, ex-Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams reach deal, source says

Former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams has reached agreement on a one-year deal worth up to $6.2 million with the Detroit Lions, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Wednesday. The Lions might have a revamped wide receiver corps in 2021, as Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones Jr. and Danny Amendola are set to become free agents later this month. Golladay could be a candidate for the team’s franchise tag. On Tuesday, Lions general manager Brad Holmes stated he didn’t think it would take long to remake the team’s receiver room. The Lions might also end up without returner/receiver Jamal Agnew and have just Quintez Cephus and Geronimo Allison, who opted out of […]

Carlos Correa open to long-term contract with Houston Astros, if done before season starts

If the Houston Astros want to sign shortstop Carlos Correa to a long-term deal, he says they need to do it before Opening Day. “I feel so good, my body feels so great and I feel like I’m going to have such a great season that once the season starts, I don’t want to be involved with or distracted with those conversations,” Correa stated Monday after the Astros held their first full-squad workout of the spring. The Astros avoided arbitration with Correa, who can become a free agent at the end of the season, by signing him to a one-year, $11.7 million contract. […]

Outfielder Marcell Ozuna returns to Atlanta Braves on four-year deal

The Atlanta Braves are bringing back Marcell Ozuna, signing the slugger to a four-year, $64 million deal. The Braves revealed the deal for the 2020 National League home run and RBI leader on Friday night, less than two weeks before pitchers and catchers are set to report for spring training. The contract contains a fifth-year club option for $16 million that would take it to $80 million with a $1 million buyout, which would yield Ozuna $65 million in guaranteed money. The Braves made the major commitment to Ozuna despite having no assurance there will be a designated hitter in the NL in […]

Didi Gregorius, Philadelphia Phillies agree to 2-year, $28 million deal

Didi Gregorius is returning to the Philadelphia Phillies after the free-agent shortstop agreed to a two-year, $28 million deal with the team, a source confirmed to ESPN on Saturday. In another move, the Phillies are trading shortstop Kyle Holder to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for cash considerations, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. Gregorius, who turns 31 on Feb. 18, proved to be a massive bargain in 2020 for the Phillies, who signed the free agent to a one-year, $14 million deal last offseason. He rebounded from an injury-plagued 2019 season with the New York Yankees by hitting .284 with 10 home runs, 40 RBIs and 34 runs scored […]

New York Yankees agree with reliever Darren O’Day on 1-year, $2.5 million deal

The New York Yankees quickly found a replacement for their bullpen, agreeing to a $2.5 million, one-year contract with submarining right-hander Darren O’Day, according to multiple reports. The deal contains player and club options for 2022 and is subject to a successful physical, according to reports. Also on Wednesday, the Yankees informed they finalized a six-year, $90 million contract to keep AL batting champion DJ LeMahieu and completed an $11 million deal to add right-hander Corey Kluber. O’Day takes the spot vacated when the Yankees traded right-hander Adam Ottavino to Boston on Monday, a move that cut $7.15 million from New York’s payroll. O’Day figures to join left-hander Zack Britton and right-hander Chad […]

Ryan Zimmerman seals deal with Washington Nationals, says this might not be last year

Now that he’s set to play for the Washington Nationals this campaign, Ryan Zimmerman might stick around a little longer, too. Zimmerman and the Nationals made it official Saturday, revealing his $1 million, one-year contract. The deal came after the Nats’ longest-tenured player opted out of the coronavirus-shortened 2020 season. “If I can settle into this role and do well this year, by no means does this have to be my last year,” Zimmerman said on a video call with reporters. “At least that’s the way I’m looking at it.” Zimmerman, 36, is a two-time All-Star and bats right-handed. His playing time likely will […]

J.A. Happ, Minnesota Twins agree to deal

Veteran left-hander J.A. Happ and the Minnesota Twins have agreed to a one-year deal, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. The deal, which is pending a physical, is worth $8 million, according to multiple reports. Happ, a free agent, will stay in the American League after spending the past two-and-a-half seasons with the New York Yankees. He will join a Minnesota rotation that incorporates Kenta Maeda, Jose Berrios and Michael Pineda, a group that will look to help the Twins to a third consecutive AL Central title this season. Minnesota finished third in the AL last season with a team ERA of 3.58. Happ will be just the second offseason […]

Dodgers re-sign reliever Blake Treinen to a two-year deal

The Los Angeles Dodgers revealed on Tuesday they’ve re-signed hard-throwing reliever Blake Treinen to a two-year contract, fortifying the back end of their bullpen by bringing back one of the key cogs in their championship run. Treinen’s deal is valued at $17.5 million and contains a 2023 club option worth $8 million, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. Treinen’s ERA ballooned from 0.78 to 4.91 in his final two campaigns with the Oakland Athletics, but the 32-year-old right-hander bounced back with the Dodgers in 2020, posting a 3.86 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP and a 2.75 strikeout-to-walk ratio — numbers more closely in line with his first […]

San Diego Padres reach deal with KBO star Ha-seong Kim

The San Diego Padres have added another big name this offseason, signing Korean star infielder Ha-seong Kim to a four-year contract. The Padres formally announced the signing on Thursday. Kim, 25, became one of the top infielders on the open market when he was posted earlier this month by the Kiwoom Heroes, his team in the Korea Baseball Organization. Multiple media outlets reported earlier Monday that Kim was traveling to the United States ahead of the Jan. 1 deadline for MLB teams to sign posted KBO players. San Diego already made headlines Sunday night by acquiring ace left-hander Blake Snell in a blockbuster trade […]
