Trevor Bauer becomes free agent after clearing waivers

Trevor Bauer became a free agent Friday when he went unclaimed on waivers, leaving the Los Angeles Dodgers accountable for about $22.5 million owed to the former Cy Young Award winner whose unprecedented 324-game suspension over sexual misconduct allegations was reduced by an arbitrator. Los Angeles designated Bauer for assignment on Jan. 6, the last day to restore him to the roster, after arbitrator Martin Scheinman cut the suspension imposed by MLB commissioner Rob Manfred from 324 to 194 games. The Dodgers placed Bauer on waivers Thursday. Any team could sign the 2020 NL Cy Young Award winner for the major league minimum of $720,000. That would […]

Justin Turner agrees to 2-year deal with Red Sox

Third baseman Justin Turner and the Boston Red Sox are in agreement on a two-year contract worth just shy of $22 million that includes an opt-out after the first season, sources told ESPN on Sunday. Turner spent the past nine years with the Los Angeles Dodgers, where he blossomed into one of the National League’s most productive and consistent hitters. Now 38, he’ll head to Boston, which already has perennial MVP candidate Rafael Devers at third base, and likely settle into a first-base or designated hitter role, perhaps filling the slot of J.D. Martinez, who agreed to a deal Saturday with the Dodgers. While Turner’s power receded this […]

Dodgers sign OF Jason Heyward to a minor league contract

Jason Heyward, the former All-Star and five-time Gold Glove Award winner who has struggled offensively for most of the last six years, has signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the team revealed Thursday. The agreement includes an invitation to spring training. Heyward, still only 33, was a dynamic defender, a solid baserunner and a dangerous — albeit inconsistent — power hitter in his first six seasons, batting .268/.353/.431 with 276 extra-base hits with the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals.

Toronto Blue Jays hire Don Mattingly as bench coach

Don Mattingly was expecting to spend a summer at home with his family. A call from the Toronto Blue Jays convinced him to get back into baseball. Mattingly, who left his job as Miami Marlins manager at the end of last season, is joining Toronto’s staff as bench coach to manager John Schneider, the team revealed Wednesday. Mattingly stated he’d been contacted by multiple clubs with offers for 2023, but nothing interested him until Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins called to chat. “Just the first conversation, it felt great, honestly,” Mattingly said on a video call Wednesday. “It piqued my interest right away.” […]

Pittsburgh Pirates, 1B Carlos Santana agree on 1-year, $6.7M deal

First baseman Carlos Santana and the Pittsburgh Pirates are in agreement on a one-year, $6.7 million contract, pending the results of a physical, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN. Santana, 36, concluded with a league-average OPS last year, hitting .202/.316/.376 between stints with the Seattle Mariners and Kansas City Royals. But his expected numbers, based on how hard he hit the ball (an 81st-percentile exit velocity) and his elite walk rate (97th percentile), projected far better results, something that drove his market. Further, nobody was shifted a higher percentage last year than Santana, who saw altered defense in 356 of his 362 left-handed batting appearances. With […]

Dodgers non-tender Cody Bellinger, making him a free agent

Cody Bellinger, a 27-year-old outfielder who was an MVP as recently as 2019, was non-tendered by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, a somewhat expected move that nonetheless encapsulates his precipitous downfall offensively. Bellinger was due to make something in the neighborhood of $18 million in 2023, which would have been his final season before free agency. Instead, he’ll venture into the free agent market a year early, though the Dodgers and Bellinger’s agent, Scott Boras, can renegotiate a different contract, perhaps one that covers multiple years at a lower rate. Regardless, a Dodgers team coming off back-to-back 100-plus-win seasons is in […]

Angels, LHP Tyler Anderson agree to 3-year deal

The Los Angeles Angels, once again in need of a starting pitcher to slot near the top of their rotation, have agreed to a three-year, $39 million contract Tyler Anderson, sources told ESPN. The deal, which will pay Anderson $13 million each year, was struck hours before Tuesday’s deadline for players to decide whether to accept the qualifying offer. Anderson was given the one-year, $19.65 million qualifying offer by the crosstown Los Angeles Dodgers but instead opted for a multiyear agreement. The Angels will now lose their second-round pick and the Dodgers will gain a pick after the fourth round in next year’s draft. […]

Padres pull out 5-3 victory over Dodgers, tie NLDS 1-all

Not many tabbed the San Diego Padres to defeat the Mets in New York in the wild-card round. Even fewer picked them versus the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have dominated the Padres in recent years and were baseball’s best team during the regular season. But they’re all even now. Manny Machado homered early and added an RBI double off Clayton Kershaw, and Jurickson Profar singled home the go-ahead run as San Diego defeated the Dodgers 5-3 on Wednesday to tie their NL Division Series at one game apiece. “We’re going to compete,” Machado said. “We’re going to try to do everything possible to help our team win every single […]

Dodgers overcome Gallen’s 13 Ks, rally to beat D-backs 3-2

Max Muncy hit a tying infield single in the ninth inning and pinch-hitter Mookie Betts singled home the winning run, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers edge the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Thursday night for their major league-leading 45th comeback triumph of the season. The Dodgers didn’t take the lead until Arizona starter Zac Gallen left after eight innings. He struck out a career-high 13. Craig Kimbrel (6-6) got the win despite again struggling in the ninth. Christian Walker slammed a 435-foot shot into the left-center field pavilion — his 36th homer overall and sixth against the Dodgers this season — for a 2-1 lead against Kimbrel. Gallen retired the first 11 […]

Smith, Thompson homers power MLB-leading Dodgers past Padres

Will Smith homered for the second successive game and Trayce Thompson added a pinch-hit home run as the Los Angeles Dodgers used two big innings to defeat the San Diego Padres 9-4 on Sunday night. The Dodgers, who have the best record in the MLB at 92-41, extended their lead over the Padres in the NL West to 19 matches with 29 games left. The Dodgers’ magic number to claim the division is nine. “You definitely want to win the division and it gives you a little bit easier road to the postseason,” Smith said. “Once you get to the postseason, it doesn’t matter. We really just […]
