- SBN's Chris Cotillo had some pretty surprising info today:
Sources: Coaches at D2 Notre Dame College (OH) have alerted players that Travis Hafner will join team's coaching staff if not signed as FA.— Chris Cotillo (@ChrisCotillo) January 14, 2014
Hafner could start at NDC "as soon as next week" according to sources. Not necessarily retirement. Wife is a cheerleading coach there.— Chris Cotillo (@ChrisCotillo) January 14, 2014
- No surprise whatsoever...
The #Indians avoided arbitration with LHP Josh Outman tonight, signing him to a one-year contract for 2014— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) January 15, 2014
- The Indians added Nyjer Morgan, AKA Tony Plush, on a minor league deal. Here's Jason's take on it.
- Xander Bogaerts may be #1 on this MLB.com list of top SS prospects, but Francisco Lindor is 4th. This seems low to me, although I admit to not knowing a ton about Carlos Correa and (especially) Javier Baez.
- The Mariners and John Buck agreed on a $1M contract for 2014.
- Jason Bay is leaning toward retirement.
