- 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.
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.
