Brandon Hyde, who was Joe Maddon’s bench coach with the Cubs last year, has been tapped to be the new Orioles manager.
Nothing new on the Yankees’ front. I won’t comment on rumors, for if I did, I’d be here forever. But when something happens, I’ll comment on that.
Andrew McCutchen wasn’t expected to return to the Yanks, and he isn’t. The free agent signed a 3 yr., $50MM deal with the Phillies.
One thing I am concerned about…. will the Yanks lose out on Happ as well? With Corbin and Eovaldi off the board, and if Happ goes elsewhere (Phillies?), there still may be pitchers available, but are the Yanks losing out on who they really would want to fill out that rotation? Hoping to hear something on that end soon.
Toronto released Troy Tulowitzki. Injuries cost him most of 2017 and all of 2018. I don’t have interest in him, sadly, even with Didi out for at least half of next year. The once great SS for the Rockies is 34 and hasn’t been the same in a number of years now.
