Mets, Tigers discussed Michael Conforto for J.D. Martinez trade

Mets, Tigers discussed Michael Conforto for J.D. Martinez trade

The proposed deal was a “real consideration” over the winter, according to a report. The Mets and Tigers seriously discussed a one-for-one swap that would have sent J.D. Martinez to New York for Michael Conforto, according to FanRag’s Jon Heyman. The Mets instead chose to re-sign Yoenis Cespedes, opting not to part with Conforto for one year of Martinez.

The Mets explored outfield options...

Lance Lynn and Michael Wacha to start in Monday’s split squad

Two important pieces of the Cardinals’ pitching rotation will make their spring debuts to kick off the week.

Their new-look loop of hurlers is likely to feature two guys who will make their Grapefruit League debuts on Monday: Lance Lynn and Michael Wacha. One of the Cardinals’ most consistent pitchers of recent...

The club doesn’t have an ace, or even an obvious by-default No. 1 starter. The front office added mid-to back-end arms to round out the starting five,...

Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani dealing with elbow tenderness

Soreness. Just soreness. Pour your coffee in a plastic mug and find a nice, cozy, padded room for a minute. That’ll help put a soft lid on Monday’s news that Cincinnati Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani is being pushed back from his scheduled start this week due to what the team (and manager Bryan Price) have called "elbow tenderness," as The Enquirer’s C. Trent Rosecrans relayed earlier. (Sorry, sorry.) Anthony DeSclafani was scratched from the start on Tuesday with elbow tenderness. Bryan Price said there's "no red alert," just cautious — C.
