Report: Cruz, Kemp, Upton higher targets for M's than Ramirez


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) While the Mariners look to add a right-handed hitter to their lineup, it appears they are more interested in signing free agent Nelson Cruz or trading for Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp than signing free agent Hanley Ramirez, according to FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Now that the Marlins have signed star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton to a long-term deal, the team is still trying to sign shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria and outfielder Christian Yelich to multiyear deals, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Report: Rockies lean toward keeping Tulowitzki, Gonzalez


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) The Rockies are leaning toward standing pat rather than trading stud shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, according to ESPN, which is speculating that despite injuries and contract obligations, both are too talented to be swapped without receiving equal value.

The timing for such a deal could indeed be wrong considering that both lost about half of the 2014 season to injuries.

Report: Nats' Desmond rejected $107M extension last offseason


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond rejected a seven-year, $107 million contract extension last offseason, multiple sources told The Washington Post.

The deal would have included the two-year, $17.5 million deal Desmond signed in January to avoid arbitration, meaning Desmond would have made $89.5 million over five would-be free agent seasons. The contract would have also included deferred money, decreasing its true value.

One industry source told The Post that Desmond would receive far more than $90 million over five seasons, if he became a free agent after 2015 with one more average campaign. In April 2013, Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus signed an eight-year, $120 million contract extension.

Desmond is expected to resume contract talks with the Nationals this offseason.

"There have been a lot of people that have come through this game that have sacrificed a lot for us, the players that are coming through now," Desmond said in March. "I don’t want to sign a deal -- and this isn’t to say they’ve offered me this -- but I don’t want to sign a deal that is so bad that a future shortstop gets screwed because I signed a terrible deal. I’m not going to be that guy, that kink in the chain. I’m going to get a fair deal, or I’m just going to wait."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is nearing the point in his rehab from August hip surgery where he is ready to increase the intensity, according to MLB.com. 

"He's running," Bridich said Wednesday. "Rotational stuff? No. Cuts, I don't know. It's been a progression, I'm not entirely sure where he's at.

"December is a really important month where we start to ramp things up. Some of it was being patient and letting the rehab take its course and not overdo it."


Mets' Alderson won't panic if Wilmer Flores is starting shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) Although the Mets are in the market for a shortstop, general manager Sandy Alderson said Wednesday he won't panic if Wilmer Flores is the opening day shortstop in 2015, according to The Star-Ledger.

While Flores hit .251 in 78 games, he actually hit well down the stretch. He batted .267 with a .489 slugging percentage, .791 OPS, one triple, four home runs, six doubles, 13 RBI and 15 runs over his final 23 games. He also had a .979 fielding percentage at shortstop in 2014.


Troy Tulowitzki 'right on schedule' coming off August hip surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who is the subject of trade rumors, is progressing well coming off August hip surgery, according to Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich. He said he saw Tulowitzki at the team's spring training facility in Arizona during a voluntary "fitness summit."

"Troy looked really good. He's right on schedule," Bridich said, per The Denver Post. "The surgery went really well, and now Tulo is working his (tail) off to get back. That's one thing about him: You always know he's committed."


Report: Mets search for shortstop upgrade, M's could be trade partner


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) The Cardinals announced Tuesday they signed free-agent infielder Dean Anna and added him to the 40-man roster. Anna appeared in 12 games for the Yankees in 2014, batting .136 with one home run and three RBI.

Report: Braves won't spend money on 2B while waiting for Peraza


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) The Braves plan is for prospect Jose Peraza to take over at second base in a year or possibly sooner if needed, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The team feels they can survive until Peraza is ready and don't need to spend money on a stopgap option.

Peraza is considered the Braves' top prospect by MLB.com. Peraza is lauded for his solid defense and ability to hit for contact. He hit .339 in 110 games between Class A and Double-A in 2014. He also had 60 stolen bases.


Braves coach to work with Upton, Heyward, Simmons in offseason


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) New Braves hitting coach Kevin Seitzer has been asked to work with outfielder B.J. Upton, shortstop Andrelton Simmons and outfielder Jason Heyward in the offseason, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

All three players struggled offensively in 2014. Heyward did hit .271, but he slugged just .384 and had 11 home runs. Simmons hit .244 with seven home runs and 46 RBI, while Upton hit .208 with 12 home runs and 35 RBI.


Report: Mets showed interest in Phils' Rollins, but pursuit is over


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) The Mets apparently have no problem staying inside their own division to potentially fill their need at shortstop.

The Mets called the Phillies about veteran shortstop Jimmy Rollins, sources told ESPN. Although, the pursuit was short-lived since Rollins doesn't want to leave Phildelphia.

Rollins has full no-trade protection and will earn $11 million in the final year of his contract in 2015. Rollins, who will turn 36 on Nov. 27, hit .243 with 17 home runs, 22 doubles, 55 RBI and 28 stolen bases in 138 games last season.


D-Backs receiving a lot of trade inquiries about Didi Gregorius


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) The Diamondbacks have received the most trade inquiries thus far about shortstop Didi Gregorius, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Gregorius is considered a great athlete and strong defensive shortstop.

Gregorius played at shortstop, second base and third base in 2014 for Arizona. The 24-year-old shortstop hit .226 with five triples, six home runs, nine doubles and 27 RBI in 80 games.


Report: Rockies trading Troy Tulowitzki to Mets is 'not happening'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) While there are reports the Mets are talking to the Rockies about a potential trade for shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, sources briefed on the matter told ESPN that a trade is "not happening." Although, the Mets are planning to make a trade in order to upgrade at shortstop.

The Diamondbacks, Mariners, White Sox and Cubs are viewed as four possible trade partners for the Mets. A deal for Tulowitzki is not on the Mets' radar because of the $100 million-plus still owed, as well as the crop of elite prospects the Mets would likely have to deal to Colorado to land Tulowitzki, according to the report.


Report: Marlins begin talks on long-term deals for Fernandez, Yelich


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) The Marlins have begun talks about long-term contracts for pitcher Jose Fernandez, outfielder Christian Yelich and shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, according to FOX Sports. Although, nothing is close and it is considered a long shot a deal with get done with Fernandez, who is repped by agent Scott Boras.

The Marlins motivation is simply not to impress outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who the team is also trying to sign to a long-term deal. The idea is to build a team that can sustain success.
