Around The League...

  • The Yankees are pursuing a Gerrit Cole signing, reportedly willing to go at least as high as $250 million.
  • Michael Pineda has reached a new deal with the Twins.
  • One-time Padres two-way player Christian Villanueva has reached a deal with the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters of the Nippon Baseball League.
  • Here’s an official breakdown of Kyle Gibson’s deal with the Rangers:
  • Tommy Pham is headed to San Diego. The “other minor leaguer” is two-way player Jake Cronenworth.
  • Several teams continued finalizing their coaching staffs - the Padres hired former MLBer Damion Easley as their hitting coach.
  • The Giants named Donnie Ecker, most recently of the Reds, to be their hitting coach.
  • The Detroit Tigers Short Season affiliate, the Connecticut Tigers, have rebranded, and perhaps intentionally avoided an easy alliterative alternative?
