Edwin Encarnacion reportedly offered ‘about’ $80 million deal from Blue Jays

The Blue Jays are becoming an intriguing part of this offseason. According to Jon Heyman to FanRag.com, the Jays offered Edwin Encarnacion a four-year deal worth “about” $80 million prior to signing Kendrys Morales to his three-year, $33 million deal. Even with the signing of Morales, Heyman reports that the Blue Jays remain interested in […]

Encarnacion talks 'ongoing' as Blue Jays confirm Kendrys Morales signing

The Toronto Blue Jays’ signing of Kendrys Morales doesn’t necessarily spell the end of Edwin Encarnacion’s time in Toronto, but it definitely lowers the odds of the popular free- agent slugger returning next year.

Hot Stove Notes: Jansen, Melancon, Cespedes, Bautista

Red Sox Are 'Not Serious' About Edwin Encarnación

Encarnación (L); Beltran (R)Presumably, he would be a perfect fit to replace retiring David Ortiz—but multiple reports indicate that the Red Sox are "not serious" about pursuing free-agent slugger Edwin Encarnación. Instead, top-honcho Dave Dombrowski is lusting after (wait for it) 40-year old Carlos Beltran and alternate 'cheapo option' Kendrys Morales. What, John Henry's 'wicked-deep' pockets aren't quite deep enough? Spare me the "lefty/switch-hitter" baloney—their lineup isn't that right-heavy. This is just the NOG (after raising ticket prices for fans) being unwilling to spend to...

The Yanks have shown interest in Kendrys Morales, who’d be a pretty good fit, actually

According to Joel Sherman, the Yankees are among the teams to show interest in designated hitter Kendrys Morales early this offseason. He became a free agent a few days ago when he declined his half of the $11M mutual option in his contract. That’s not surprising. He’ll get more as a free agent. The Royals […] The post The Yanks have shown interest in Kendrys Morales, who’d be a pretty good fit, actually appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Red Sox have ‘reached out’ to Kendrys Morales

Another underwhelming option floated for DH. The Red Sox have “reached out” to free agent Kendrys Morales according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. I...don’t really get it. Kendrys Morales is not a bad hitter. He’s had a wRC+ of at least 110 in four of the last five seasons, even if he’s never quite made his way back to the levels he was at in 2009 and 2010 before his big injury with the Angels. But he also only ever eclipsed 120 in 2015, with that number going back down to exactly 110 last year. He put up big home run totals for the Royals, but struggled to produce in any...

Yankees weigh Kendrys Morales for spot if they unload McCann

SCOTTDALE, Ariz. – As a hedge in case they are able to trade Brian McCann, the Yankees have inquired about Kendrys Morales, The Post has learned. The Blue Jays and Red Sox also have reached out on Morales, who led the Royals with 30 homers in 2016. Boston designated hitter David Ortiz retired after last...
