Happy Saturday folks! Let’s get the weekend started with some links.
In Mariners news...
- Shannon Drayer analyzes the impact of minor league realignment on the M’s affiliates.
Around the league...
- Dan Szymborski continues his dive through the 2021 ZiPS projections by taking a look at the Angels.
- The Rangers beat everyone else to the punch, and for a fairly reasonable price too.
Free agent outfielder David Dahl and the Texas Rangers are in agreement on a one-year deal for around $3 million, sources familiar with the agreement tell ESPN. The 26-year-old Dahl was nontendered by Colorado but should find plenty of playing time with the Rangers.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) December 11, 2020
- Interesting that exact contract terms are mentioned here. You don’t see that very often for executives.
Official: The #Phillies hire Dave Dombrowski as head of baseball operations. He will receive a 4-year, $20 million contract— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) December 11, 2020
- Do people in baseball think this could be happening soon? I always assumed Portland and Montreal would be the the first in line to get teams.
Dombrowski says he basically took the job in Philly because he was told expansion in Nashville isn't happening anytime soon.— Jesse Rogers (@JesseRogersESPN) December 11, 2020
