Pas de rencontre entre les Nationals et les gros joueurs
Pas besoin de passer par autre chose que les agents puisque les joueurs savent à quoi s’en tenir.
Nats GM Mike Rizzo says he doesn’t have plans to meet personally with Rendon or Strasburg this offseason, but will negotiate through their agent Scott Boras. “We’ve been meeting for about 10 years…they know where our heart lies”

Les Brewers auront une allure différente en 2020.
Gone from Brewers’ 2019 roster: Yasmani Grandal, Mike Moustakas, Drew Pomeranz, Travis Shaw, Chase Anderson, Zach Davies, Junior Guerra, Alex Claudio, Jimmy Nelson and Tyler Saladino. Quite the overhaul.

Et que dire des Jays…
Anthony Alford, the 25-year-old outfielder who made his MLB debut in 2017 and has 59 career plate appearances, is now the #BlueJays longest-tenured player.

Un client de moins
Un premier pion de Scott Boras a signé. Qui sera le prochain?
Moustakas’ signing also takes the first of Scott Boras’ Big 7 free agents off the board. Still left: Gerrit Cole, Strephen Strasburg, Anthony Rendon, Dallas Keuchel, Hyun-jin Ryu and Nicholas Castellanos.

Le DH de l’année est…

Une perte pour les Jays
Steve Saunders suit Ben Cherington à Pittsburgh.
Per @JeffPassan, #BlueJays are losing scouting director Steve Sanders to the Ben Cherington-led Pittsburgh Pirates.
Without a doubt a loss for Atkins & Co.
Sanders led 3 drafts and came away with Nate Pearson, Jordan Groshans, Alek Manoah, plus interesting non-first-round talent.

Jesus Aguilar à Miami
Une belle prise par les Marlins.
First baseman Jesús Aguilar has been claimed by the Miami Marlins, sources tell ESPN. Aguilar was designated for assignment earlier this week by Tampa Bay. There's a clear path to the first-base job for him.

Ils ont aussi acquis Jonathan Villar.
Marlins will acquire Infielder Jonathan Villar from the Orioles, per source.

Un autre départ
Guillermo Heredia quittera les Rays.

Les ambitions du proprio
Hal Steinbrenner n’est pas complètement insatisfait de la saison des Yankees.
"In the end, in October, we failed, that does not mean the season of course was a failure."

Les options de Pillar
N’oubliez pas que plusieurs équipes se cherchent un voltigeur de centre.
So Pillar heads to free agency off nice season. Should do fine. Many teams seek a CF (Mets, Reds, Cubs, Dbacks, Padres, more)

Joe Biagini reste à Houston
Il a signé un contrat d’un an.
Meanwhile, the Astros avoided arbitration with Joe Biagini on a one-year deal

Russell à Baltimore?
Ce n’est pas impossible.
Addison Russell will presumably look for a more significant role, on a one-year deal. Orioles are looking for a middle infielder, and if he rebuilds his career swinging in the hitters' park in Baltimore, the Orioles would flip him for value, presumably. He turns 26 in January
