Braves Sign Charlie Morton

The Braves have a lot of young talent in their rotation, but sometimes you need an elder statesman to lead the way. With Mike Soroka still on his way back from an Achilles injury, Atlanta has quietly picked up two veteran arms. Charlie Morton is the latest addition after they signing Drew Smyly last week. Morton signed a 1-year, $15 million deal.

Blake Snell on the Trade Block?

Word on the street is that the Rays are open to trading Blake Snell. This seems like a bit of a shock until you remember that the Rays have made this kind of move before (David Price & James Shields). Snell would net a massive haul, especially from a pitching-starved team like the Angels or Mariners.

Amed Rosario To Change Positions? | Mets Shortstop Options

The Mets are thinking of playing Amed Rosario at multiple positions next year. A natural shortstop, Rosario has the tools to move around the diamond, but his bat is a bit light to match the profile of a corner spot. Are the Mets clearing shortstop to make way for a big trade piece? All this on today's episode.

Yonder Alonso Retires

After a 10-year career, Yonder Alonso has retired. Alonso was a one-time All Star who bounced around several teams. In recent years, he was a veteran presence for teams that needed some 1B/DH depth. Alonso wants to stay involved in baseball in some capacity. What's next for him?

Nats Looking For Bats | Angels Like J.A. Happ | Springer to Toronto?

The Washington Nationals are looking for bats. They are kicking the tires on a Kris Bryant trade, a DJ LeMahieu signing, or a JT Realmuto signing. After losing Anthony Rendon last year, Washington wants to acquire an offensive weapon. J.A. Happ has piqued the Angels' interest. He's been very consistent despite his age. Could George Springer end up in Toronto? It makes a lot of sense.

Wander Franco's Path to The Bigs | Is He Blocked?

Wander Franco is baseball's top prospect and has been for two years now. He's still only 19 years old and has yet to play above A-ball, so he'll most likely spend 2021 getting seasoned in the upper minors. But after then, what will his path to playing time be considering who the Rays already have in the middle infield?

Robinson Cano Suspended For 2021 | Second Positive PED Test

Robinson Cano has tested positive for PEDs again. Cano will be suspended without pay for the entire 2021 season. Although he won't receive the $24 million he was due next year, Cano still has an additional 2 years and $48 million dollars on his contract. Although he was an elite player with Hall-of-Fame numbers, Cano will struggle to receive a nomination to Cooperstown when the time comes.

Theo Epstein Steps Down | Bellinger Gets Shoulder Fixed

Theo Epstein is stepping down from his role as the Cubs' President of Baseball Operations. Epstein is a decorated executive who will be in the Hall of Fame some day, but he is walking away from the Cubs with a year left on his contract. What does this mean for the Cubs franchise?

Padres Extend Clevinger | Braves Sign Smyly | Hall of Fame Ballot Released

Mike Clevinger will undergo Tommy John surgery today, but at least he gets to celebrate a new 2-year deal with the Padres. Drew Smyly was one of the better strikeout pitchers in baseball, so the Braves are banking on his upside with a 1-year, $11 million deal for next year. The 2021 Hall of Fame ballot has been released. All this (and more) on today's episode.

The Market For JT Realmuto

JT Realmuto is the best catcher in baseball. He's also a free agent. Realmuto will be looking to strike it rich, and he's well-positioned to do so. Projections see him landing a 5-year deal in the $115-125 million range. Where are his likely destinations?
