Eovaldi registered a 4.37 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP and 142:43 K:BB ratio over 199 2/3 innings as a starter in Miami. Jones hit .246 with 15 homers and 53 RBI over 496 at-bats in his lone season with the Marlins.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Free agent outfielder/first baseman Michael Morse has agreed to a deal with the Marlins, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. MLB.com reports it is a two-year deal, pending a physical. FOX Sports was first to report Morse was close to a deal with Miami.

Morse heads to Miami with a .281/.335/.473/.808 slash line over 10 seasons in the majors. He helped San Francisco to a World Series title in 2014, while batting .279 with a .475 slugging percentage, 16 home runs, 32 doubles and 61 RBI in 131 regular season games.

Orioles on Ryan Howard's pre-approved list for trades


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2014) The Orioles and the Phillies discussed a package deal that included outfielder Marlon Byrd and first baseman Ryan Howard during the winter meetings, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports Saturday.

According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, the Orioles are one of eight teams on Howard's pre-approved list for trades. An American League team seems like an ideal landing spot for the veteran, who could spend the final two years of his contract as a designated hitter. However, according to Heyman, there's "not a lot there at the moment" between the two clubs.

Howard has two years and a guaranteed $60 million remaining on his contract, with a $23 million option for 2017. He slashed .223/.310/.380 with 23 homers, 95 RBI while also striking out 190 times over 569 at-bats last season

Mayberry has a .241 average, .305 on-base percentage, .429 slugging percentage and .734 OPS in six MLB seasons. He also has 53 career home runs.

Mayberry has a .208 average, two home runs, five doubles and 12 RBI in 31 career games at Citi Field.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) The Phillies and Orioles have talked about first baseman Ryan Howard this week, the New York Daily News reports.

It's unclear how much interest the Orioles have in Howard, a player who has declined in recent years and is owed $25 million in each of the next two seasons as well as a $10 million buyout of his 2017 option. He hit .223/.310/.380 with 23 home runs and 95 RBI in 569 at-bats in 2014.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Morneau is heading into the final year of a two-year, $12.5 million contract that includes a $750,000 mutual option for 2016. 

"Now that there are fewer free-agent hitters to be had, we are getting more calls on our hitters," Bridich said Tuesday. "Justin is a heck of a player and a heck of a hitter under a very fair contract."

CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirmed Wednesday the Marlins are one team showing interest in acquiring Morneau, who hit .319 with a .496 slugging percentage in 135 games in 2014.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Free agent outfielders/first basemen John Mayberry, Jr. and Kyle Blanks are two nontendered players who are on the Mets' radar, Newsday reports.

Either player would fit the needs of the team as potential options at first base or in a corner outfield spot. Mayberry hit .212/.310/.425 with seven home runs and 23 RBI in 146 at-bats between the Phillies and Blue Jays in 2014. Blanks hit .309/.409/.436 with two home runs and seven RBI in 55 at-bats between the Padres and A's.


Giants chances of re-signing Michael Morse appear to be fading


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) It appears re-signing outfielder Michael Morse is becoming less likely of an option for the Giants, according to SFGate.com.

Giants assistant general manager Bobby Evans said the Giants remain in talks with Morse. However, he is getting a lot of interest from AL teams looking for a DH.

"He’s got interest from other suitors on a multiyear basis, and the market may ultimately sweep him away," Evans said.

The 32-year-old Morse spent the 2014 season with the World Series champs. He hit .279 with a .475 slugging percentage, .811 OPS, 16 home runs, 32 doubles and 61 RBI in 131 games.


Mets 1B Lucas Duda has 'confidence' he can hit southpaws


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Mets first baseman Lucas Duda hit just .180 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 111 at-bats against left-handed pitchers in 2014.

Manager Terry Collins indicated Duda became a pull-oriented hitter last season and was hurt not using all fields against lefties. Duda didn't seem to disagree when speaking with reporters Thursday.

"I think that I did get a bit too much thinking to the right side of the field," Duda said, per ESPN. "That’s an adjustment I have to make during the season, or even before the season starts. And I think I will. I have confidence in myself."

Michael Cuddyer, who signed a two-year deal in November, could be a fallback option at first base for the Mets, if Duda continues to struggle against southpaws.

"Acquiring Michael Cuddyer is huge for us -- a veteran presence and a guy with his track record," Duda said. "As far as the lefties go, I feel like in the past I’ve hit lefties a little bit better than I’ve shown. … But if he has to spell me at first base versus lefties, whatever is good for the team, whatever is going to help us win, I’m all for. I’ll come off the bench or come in late in the game or whatever it is. Anything to help us win. That’s our main goal. We’ve got to accomplish it this year."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets hitting coach working on strategy to help Lucas Duda vs. LHPs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2014) New Mets hitting coach Kevin Long said Wednesday he feels throwing left-handed will help left-handed hitters like Lucas Duda improve against lefties, according to ESPN. Duda hit .180 against lefties in 2014 and is batting .212 against them in his MLB career.

"I'll move over a little bit more so that it makes it more difficult to pick up my arm slot," Long said. "... That should help Lucas, getting to face me a number of times. I know Curtis (Granderson), every time we faced a lefty, and even when we didn't, would take batting practice off me. All of my flips in the cages are left-handed. Obviously the more that you face a lefty, the more comfortable you should become and be."
