Around the league...

  • The Brewers have agreed to a major league deal with right-hander Julio Teheran.
  • The Oakland A’s and Nevada lawmakers have agreed to a tentative deal over funding for a new baseball stadium in Las Vegas. The organization has now cleared a major hurdle that was many thought would stop the deal in its infancy.
