#MNTwins are in on Hyun-Jin Ryu. Also: Jays and Dodgers (tho his old team is also looking even higher (Cole/Strasburg)
Ted Simmons was the one player elected to the Hall today
Marvin Miller is Elected to the Baseball Hall by modern era committee
Hall of Fame announcement upcoming on @MLBNetwork moments away. Simmons, Whitaker, Mattingly, Murohy, Parker, Miller among candidates
Reds do like Didi Gregorius, and he still seems to be a consideration for them. He’s originally a Red, plus they want to add gritty, winning players (ie Moose). They are covered at SS tho with Freddy Galvis, and at $5.5M too, which would be pricey for a Reds bench player.
Jose Bautista is looking to play in 2020 if the opportunity presents itself
Much of the old gang is back #mets https://twitter.com/anthonydicomo/status/1203816062271152128
Ben Zobrist remains undecided about playing next year
Nats btw have told Ryan Zimmerman they’d like him back. They are in good position there since he’s made clear he doesn’t want to play anywhere else. No evidence they’ve talked $ yet tho.
Nats remain more confident about Strasburg than Rendon. Doesn’t mean that’s how it plays out but that’s the way they seem to feel.
Dodgers have rebuffed some teams that have called with interest in Gavin Lux. LA is said to like Anthony Rendon though it remains unclear how they’d clear room for him. Justin Turner has generously volunteered to switch position but Dodgers have Max Muncy at 1B and Lux at 2B.
While Yankees haven’t submitted their initial bid on Gerrit Cole just yet — they are working on it — it will be made very soon. The $245M for 7 reported by @BobKlap sounds like an excellent estimate for a bid as it’s a record per year and in total.
I can do a grape scotch taped to a mirror. Any takers? https://twitter.com/cbsnews/status/1203026454105264128
Rumor that Marcell Ozuna is signing with the White Sox with announcement coming Monday is not true, I’m told. White Sox appears to be concentrating on pitching at the moment.
More agent news: Shea Langeliers, catcher in Braves system and No. 9 overall pick in last year’s draft, has hired Scott Boras Corp to rep him
Agent news: LA Angels pitcher Noe Ramirez hired Steve Rath and Jeff Borris of Ballengee
Interested teams are summiting offers on Gerrit Cole by early next week. Top of market could move fast. Everyone who’s serious understands it will be a record deal for a pitcher (current record holder: David Price, 217M). In addition to NYY, teams linked: LAA, LAD, PHI, TEX
Heard Andy Pettitte was a big hit at the Cole/Strasburg meetings. “Star in the room” Very personable fellow. Good call to include him.
Rosenthal is actually 2M base plus 2.25 incentives upon further review #royals
