Happy Sunday, everyone!
This still hasn’t officially happened yet but it seems like it will soon.
Around the league
- Emilio Pagan is on his way to San Diego in exchange for Manuel Margot and Logan Driscoll, who are heading to Tampa Bay.
- Charlie Morton wishes he had done more to stop the sign stealing in Houston.
- Arasmis Garcia underwent hip surgery and will miss up to eight months.
- The Red Sox and Andrew Benintendi avoided salary arbitration and agreed to a 2-year/$10 million deal.
- Angel Echevarria passed away at age 48.
- The White Sox have signed Cuban right-hander Norge Carlos Vera.
- The Mookie Betts trade continues to be on thin ice...maybe...who knows:
Twins have not backed out of initial 3-team trade that would send Mookie Betts to the Dodgers, I'm told. They are willing to renegotiate and attempt to work through it, though whether it ultimately gets figured out is uncertain. All sides want a resolution by reporting date.— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) February 8, 2020
Hey the headine was a little strong. Twins don’t expect a deal to be made. That is clear. But There’s no “pull out” yet.— LaVelle E. Neal III (@LaVelleNeal) February 8, 2020
