[movie ad voice] Ryan Raburn Is... The Most Volatile Hitter in Baseball History —the only surprise is that it wasn't even close. When he's good, he's really good.

• Here's a nice in-depth look at just how good Carlos Carrasco has become.

Around Baseball

• The Marlins signed LHP Wei-Yin Chen for 5 years. The $80M contract doesn't have a no-trade clause, but does have a $16M option that would make it $96M.

• Gerardo Parra signed with the Rockies. This one's for 3 years at $27.5M. They may be about to trade an outfielder because of this. Should we discuss this?

• Chris Johnson also signed with ehe Marlins, as LGT already covered yesterday.

• The Orioles wanted Gavin Floyd to "throw at mini camp" but he declined to do so. I don't blame him. He showed enough in 2015 to not be asked to be Alex Tanney.

• There were a couple trades yesterday, but they were both more complicated than interesting, so I'll just link you to a transactions page if you're interested.

• The Dodgers hired Alex Anthopoulos and now have seventeen general managers.

• Fangraphs projects the Indians for 86 wins, most in the division. It was 85 previously.
