  • Young Japanese sensation Munetaka Murakami signed a three-year contract with the Yakult Swallows, with the stipulation that he will be posted to Major League Baseball after the 2025 season. Murakami will enter MLB as a 26-year-old.
  • Mike Axisa at CBS Sports wrote about the wild spending of Steve Cohen, which may just lead the Mets to a championship.
  • 100 MLB players received bonuses through MLB’s pre-arb program for the first time, including a pair of Mariners.
