Rob Carr/Getty ImagesA handful of the offseason's
top MLB free agents remain preoccupied with World Series aspirations. The hot stove Derek Jeter Jersey , however, never stays off entirely.Before joining a stacked crop of stars on the open market, Manny Machado, Clayton Kershaw, Dallas Keuchel, Charlie Morton, Craig Kimbrel, Yasmani Grandal, Nathan Eovaldi, Brian Dozier and Hyun-Jin Ryu will look to pad their portfolios with an indelible October moment. As they play for glory, 26 teams are already planning for the winter.Those are only some of baseball's biggest names who will put the sport's recent lethargic spending to the test. Affluent organizations have patiently waited for this influx of game-changing talent, and a growing division of power could spark bidding wars among MLB's top contenders.Let's take an early stroll around the rumor mill to examine some free-agent chatter. Phillies in Mix for Manny Machado and Bryce HarperThe Phillies are expected to pursue Bryce Harper and Machado this offseason.Rob Carr/Getty ImagesAlthough their premature playoff hopes cratered with an 8-20 September, the Philadelphia Phillies remain poised to make major noise this postseason.Even when 2018 contention was a longshot, they opened their wallets to sign Jake Arrieta and Carlos Santana. Before accounting for arbitration, those are the only players on the payroll set to make more than $9 million next year.That makes them a strong candidate to pursue the winter's grand prizes, Machado and Bryce Harper. While the former better fits their need for a shortstop or third baseman, FanCred's Jon Heyman said they may ultimately want to poach Harper from the rival Washington Nationals."Phillies people suggest they don鈥檛 think signing both Manny Machado and Bryce Harper is likely, but no one should rule it out," Heyman wrote. "They are expected to be the most aggressive team in bidding this winter. And while they have a strong connection to Machado, don鈥檛 be surprised if it鈥檚 Harper instead. Harper is a chance to stick it to the rival Nats, and his big finish made folks notice."Either one would represent a franchise-altering coup. While most players enter free agency beyond their prime http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , these superstar sluggers each have plenty of All-Star years ahead at age 26.Machado, who has played all but 11 games in the last four seasons, belted 33-37 homers in each of those campaigns and twice exceeded 6.0 WAR. He offers more consistency and a strong glove, especially if he accepts a permanent move to the hot corner.Harper's batting average has fluctuated wildly (.330, .243, .319, .249) over the years, but only five hitters have registered a higher on-base percentage (.388) since his debut in 2012. As showcased by his MVP campaign in 2015, he may still brandish the highest ceiling of anyone in the game.It'd be sweat to bolster their squad while weakening Washington in the process, but the Phillies should still make Machado their top priority. With minus-146Defensive Runs Saved(DRS), they played MLB's worst defense by a wide margin.The former Baltimore Orioles cornerstone can bolster their infield as a solid shortstop or Gold Glove third baseman. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean the Phillies are first on his wish list, yet they have the resources to offer a massive, potentially record-setting contract to steer him away from the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees.With a top suitor less likely to offer another enormous deal, Harper stays in D.C. to form a formidable outfield with Juan Soto and Victor Robles.Prediction: Machado signs a 10-year megadeal with Phillies; Harper stays with Nationals.Yankees Yearn for Patrick CorbinThe Yankees are reportedly interested in New York native Patrick Corbin.Denis Poroy/Getty ImagesBooted from the playoffs by the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees can oversee significantturnover to take the next step this winter. With southpaw starters J.A. Happ and CC Sabathia set to enter free agency, they will need to fortify their rotation behind Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka.Per Heyman, the Bronx Bombers "are expected to target" Patrick Corbin. There appears to be mutual interest, as the New York native spoke fondly of the possibility to USA Today's Bob Nightengale in April."It would definitely be great to play there," Corbin said. "I grew up a Yankee fan. My whole family are Yankee fans. My mom, my dad Mariano Rivera Jersey , my grandpa, everybody. Really, every generation of my family has been Yankee fans."Nightengale recently followed up with a tweet suggesting little has changed following Corbin's career year:Bob Nightengale BNightengaleThe biggest upset of the free agent period this winter is if the #Yankees DONT land free agent pitcher Patrick Corbin, who grew up in Syracuse, and is from a family with generations of Yankee fansThat's not including his asking price. The lefty boosted his market value substantially by submitting a 3.15 ERA and 246 strikeouts in 200 innings for the Arizona Diamondbacks. His 2.47 fielding independent pitching (FIP) ranked third among all qualified starters behind Jacob deGrom (1.99) and Trevor Bauer (2.47).Teams may hesitate to throw ace money at a 28-year-old with a 3.91career ERA who went underwent Tommy John surgery in 2014, yet the breakout looks legit. Only Max Scherzer generated a higher percentage of swinging strikes, and nobody induced more swings outside the strike zone.The Yankees need to keep pace with the American League powerhouses, and Corbin wouldslide perfectly into their rotation as an upgrade to Happ and/or Sabathia. He's also younger than fellow free-agent southpaws Kershaw and Keuchel, who will each turn 31 before 2019's Opening Day.The Diamondbacks, on the other hand, look poised to retool after missing the playoffs. A.J. Pollock is also a free agent, and ESPN's Buster Olney said the NL West squad will entertain offers for Paul Goldschmidt. Perhaps the star first baseman joins Corbin in the Big Apple.Prediction: Corbin signs with Yankees for five years, $90 million 'No Indication' Rockies Will Retain DJ LeMahieuThe Rockies have showed no signs of working to re-sign DJ LeMahieu, who will need to generate all of his value on defense away from Coors Field.Justin Edmonds/Getty ImagesThe Colorado Rockies, who scored two runs in three National League Division Series losses, are in an unusual position of needing to bolster their lineup behind a fortified pitching staff. Those renovations may not include DJ LeMahieu.According to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post, there's "no indication" the Rockies will try to retain the 30-year-old second baseman.Their reticence makes sense after rookie Garrett Hampson notched a .396 on-base percentage in 24 MLB games. Their No. 4-ranked prospect on MLB.com batted .311/.382/.462 in Double-A and Triple-A, so he could likely replicate or exceed LeMahieu's subpar 86 weighted runs created plus (wRC+).Either one of them would have to fend off top prospect Brendan Rodgers, a shortstop blocked by Trevor Story who could demand a major league spotlight next season.With a career 87.0 contact percentage, LeMehieu leveraged Coors Field to a .329 batting average, yet the 2016 National League batting champion sports a pedestrian .264/.311/.362 slash line away from Colorado's friendly confines. He may find an unforgiving market if the Rockies pass.Ignoring the two-time Gold Glover's defensive contributions Babe Ruth Jersey , however, would also be a mistake. His 18 DRS trailed Kolten Wong by one run for the top spot among all second basemen.The Boston Red Sox rented Ian Kinsler for his glove, but he offset any defensive value by batting .242/.394/.311. While LeMahieu's offense will suffer away from Coors, the contact skills should prevent him from bottoming out entirely.Besides, the AL East champions already have plenty of offensive firepower in Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts. Replacing Kinsler with LeMahieu would preserve an elite double-play combination.Prediction: LeMahieu signs a three-year, $28 million deal with Red SoxAll advanced stats courtesy of FanGraphs unless otherwise noted. GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Eloy Jimenez admits he was pressing in his bid to make the opening day roster of the Chicago White Sox.“I accept it and I’m going to work hard,” Jimenez said Saturday of his demotion to minor league camp earlier in the week. “I tried to compete. They gave me the chance to be the best player I can be.”“I tried to do too much. I think that’s why I don’t have the good results,” he said.Jimenez, the centerpiece of a trade made in 2017 that sent pitcher Jose Quintana across town to the Cubs, has been the subject of speculation as to his arrival in the big leagues.The 22-year-old outfielder, ranked as the No. 3 prospect overall by Baseball America and MLB.com, wasn’t called up a year ago despite a monster season split between Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte — where he’ll start the 2019 season. He hit a combined .337 with 22 homers and 28 doubles in 456 at-bats.He will likely get the major league call in late April, at which time the White Sox will gain an extra season of contract control over him because of service time.This spring, Jimenez hit .154 with two doubles and a home run in Cactus League play. He struck out nine times and did not draw a walk, going 4 for 26 overall.Manager Rick Renteria said making the move on Wednesday, with two weeks left in spring training, should allow Jimenez to get his timing down. That was something Jimenez said was an issue for the first time in his young career.“We want him to get as many at-bats as possible, continue to work out in the outfield http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey ,” Renteria said. “Here we were doing approximately every other day or every third day, and he needs to get his timing back on track.”Ervin Santana, meanwhile, pitched in a minor league game Friday against San Diego and is lined up to start on Wednesday against Arizona.“It was very good,” Santana said Saturday. “It was fun, doing what I love to do.”Santana, a late signee who is likely to join the White Sox rotation early in the season if all goes well, threw five innings and faced Manny Machado five times in the simulated game.“It was fun, you know. I go, ‘You, every time I have to face you?’ He’s like, ‘Yep.’ I got a broken bat, a couple groundballs and two flyballs. He’s getting his timing, I’m getting my timing,” Santana said.The 36-year-old Santana was an All-Star in 2017 when he posted a 3.28 ERA and helped the Minnesota Twins to a surprise berth in the AL wild-card game. But a finger injury derailed last season, limiting him to 24 innings.The right-hander said he is pain-free this spring.“I feel like myself again. I don’t have any restrictions,” he said.
