Giants' Sabean: No plans to talk to Max Scherzer


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Giants general manager Brian Sabean said that the Giants have not talked to free-agent pitcher Max Scherzer and have no plans to do so, the Mercury News reports.

Scherzer is the biggest name on the pitching market and could be seeking a deal north of the $155-million pact signed by Cubs pitcher Jon Lester. His price tag may not be feasible for the Giants' budget. The 2013 AL Cy Young winner went 18-5 with a 3.15 ERA and 252:63 K:BB ratio in 220 1/3 innings with the Tigers in 2014.


Cashman: 'I don't think Yankees fans will be looking at Max Scherzer'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Unless Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is being deceptive about his offseason plans, then Yankees fans better prepare to not see Max Scherzer in pinstripes starting in 2015, as it doesn't appear New York is actively pursuing the free agent starting pitcher.

"I don’t think Yankees fans will be looking at Max Scherzer," Cashman said in an interview with NBC New York, per NJ.com. 

It has been reported Scherzer is looking for a deal in the $200 million range. Cashman said Scherzer is on a "higher level than we'd like to play in right now."

Last week at the Winter Meetings, the agent for Scherzer -- Scott Boras -- was angling for the Yankees to sign the 30-year-old pitcher.

"The idea of them having a No. 1 pitcher certainly would add protection to where their current pitchers are, to take innings off them, give them a little bit an umbrella, somebody to be the No. 1," Boras said Wednesday. "It certainly … I can’t predict what the Yankees are going to do, but a guy like Max fits in with their starting rotation to develop a World Series-caliber set, similar to what they’ve had in the past."


Report: Cardinals not active in Max Scherzer market


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) The Cardinals say they are not active in the market for free-agent pitcher Max Scherzer, USA Today Sports reports.

Stewart: Diamondbacks considering pursuing Scherzer, Shields


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Friday that the team is discussing internally whether to pursue free-agent pitchers Max Scherzer or James Shields, the Arizona Republic reorts.

The Diamondbacks were able to free up about $16 million in payroll by dealing pitcher Wade Miley and catcher Miguel Montero, and it appears that money could be used to target one of the market's top starting pitchers. Scherzer figures to command a deal much larger than Shields.


Dombrowski: Tigers 'not in active pursuit' of SP Max Scherzer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Holaday: Tigers 'definitely still on the table' for Max Scherzer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Although there hasn't been a lot of free-agent speculation regarding starting pitcher Max Scherzer, who turned down the Tigers' $15.3 million qualifying offer in November, catcher Bryan Holaday indicates a return to Detroit could still be a possibility for the right-handed hurler.

"Max is good at keeping his mouth shut, but I know the Tigers are definitely still on the table," Holaday said in a radio interview, per The Detroit News.

Top arms out of reach for D-Backs, but Kenta Maeda could be option


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart has made it clear he would like to improve the team's starting rotation, according to The Arizona Republic. Stewart could begin getting closer to his goal as early as this week at the general manager's meetings.

"I don't know if we get it accomplished this week," Stewart said, "but by the time we start the season I'd really like to try to improve our starting rotation.

"If we can clearly improve our team, then I'm not hesitant to make a trade. I don't know that we will or that we won't. What I know is that there's some clubs out there that we've had some conversations with that includes pitching, pretty good pitching. It's a matter of if we can make it happen or not."

Stewart doesn't think the Diamondbacks can afford to pursue free-agent starting pitchers Max Scherzer, Jon Lester, James Shields. However, Arizona might be in the mix for Japanese right-hander Kenta Maeda, if the Hiroshima Carp make him available through the posting system.

"I think that he's going to be a great addition to the club that's going to be able to get his services," Stewart said. "We definitely have interest in him."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
