The Bally Sports Hearing expected yesterday was pushed back to January 19th as negotiations continue.

Carlos Collazo for Baseball America wrote a piece examining batted ball data for the best college baseball players entering the 2024 season. Nick Kurtz, Travis Bazzana, J.J Wetherholt, Cole Mathis, Tommy White, Jac Caglianoe, and Rodney Green, Jr. stand out as players the Guardians should be considering as they approach an important MLB draft in which they have the number one pick.

Arbitration settlements and figure exchange deadlines are today
Just clarifying some other reports out there: The deadline for arbitration agreements tomorrow is 1 p.m. ET, not 8 p.m., per sources. The official exchange of figures among teams and players who haven't come to a salary agreement -- and are likely headed to a trial -- is at 8.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) January 11, 2024
