Chicago White Sox And New York Yankees In Expansive Talks On Jose Quintana Trade

Are the Chicago White Sox going to trade Jose Quintana to the New York Yankees? What about the Pittsburgh Pirates, will the Chicago White Sox trade Jose Quintana there? Will the Chicago White Sox wait until the MLB trade deadline to deal their star pitcher? Everything could be decided in the next few days. The White Sox may even decide to keep their prized hurler as they continue to rebrand their ballclub. What is obvious is that Chicago White Sox are sitting in the driver’s seat. Armed with what many people believe is the best pitcher available, the White Sox are in complete control. Setting the tone for the trade market was their deal with the Boston Red Sox, sending Chris Sale to the Yankees’ chief rivals. In the trade with the Red Sox, the White Sox received two of the top 10 MLB prospects. Chris Sale is one of the top pitchers in baseball and he is under a modest contract for the next three years. It is only ideal for the White Sox to ask for slightly less for Jose Quintana, who is one of the top American League hurlers. His contract is less than Sale’s and has one additional year of control. That serves as reason why the White Sox could decide to keep Quintana for themselves. The Chicago White Sox want a lot in return for jose Quintana, who is one of the top pitchers in the American League. [Image by Brian Blanco/Getty Images] Teams have been reluctant to deal with the Chicago White Sox because of their lofty, but realistic trade demands. It was reported by ESPN’s Buster Olney that the Pittsburgh Pirates were in talks with the White Sox regarding Jose Quintana. Nothing has yet to take place because of the Pirates reluctance to trade both of their top two prospects. The New York Yankees were also mentioned as a potential trade partner with the Chicago White Sox. What followed was reports of a possible three-team trade between the White Sox, Pirates, and Yankees. Sports Mockerydetails the potential trade proposal. The principal players changing teams would be Jose Quintana going to the Pirates, outfielder Andrew McCutchen would go to the Yankees, and the White Sox would get a group of prospects from both teams. Whether or not the proposed deal has any legs remains to be seen. But one of the latest reports were suggesting that the New York Yankees have approached the Chicago White Sox with a separate deal that would have Jose Quintana and closer David Robertson going to the Yankees. It would hinge on the White Sox taking on a chunk of Robertson’s salary. In a possible trade with the Chicago White Sox, it was reported that the New York Yankees would want David Robertson along with Jose Quintana. [Image by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images] The expansive talks between the White Sox and Yankees have taken place, according to CSN Chicago, but there is a chance that Robertson is not involved in those conversations. Sources sources associated with the New York Yankees have since shot down the idea (courtesy of MLB.com) that the Yankees want David Robertson included in a Jose Quintana deal. It was a trade idea that made little sense as far as the Chicago White Sox are concerned. The White Sox can get the best return for both players if they traded them in separate deals. Jose Quintana will warrant at least three top prospects from a team’s organization. As for Robertson, who is a quality MLB closer, he should be able bring back either two prospects or a pro-ready player in return. If the White Sox cannot find what they are looking for in any of the trade offers they will wait until the MLB trade deadline to see if things have changed. The Chicago White Sox have plenty of suitors for both Jose Quintana and David Robertson. They can take their time sorting out proposals, while entertaining others. That may not be good news for the New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates or any other team that are interested in the White Sox pitchers. But there is no reason for the White Sox to rush a trade. Some resolution will take place within the next few days. The Chicago White Sox will either find a deal they like or wait the process out. [Featured Image by Adam Glanzman/Getty Images]

MLB Trade Rumor: St. Louis Cardinals Pursuing Brian Dozier

It seems as though St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak isn’t done pursuing acquisitions ahead of the 2017 season just yet. St. Louis has surfaced as a potential landing spot for the services of Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier in recent days. Although, as Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch notes, bringing Dozier to St. Louis, doesn’t make a ton of sense. While his 2016 numbers are appealing (99 RBI, 42 HR,.268 BA), the price tag Minnesota is requesting is probably outside of the Cardinals’ budget. I’m told the #STLCards are not actively pursuing Brian Dozier. That doesn’t mean there hasn’t been contact at some point, of course. — Mark Saxon (@markasaxon) December 27, 2016 St. Louis could desperately use another big bat in the lineup, but is it worth it to give up a good chunk of players, some of which might have to come from the farm system Mozeliak just replenished? This offseason Mozeliak has established his faith in his current second baseman, Kolten Wong. Wong recently moved to St. Louis from his native Hawaii to acquaint himself better with the city a year after signing a five-year extension worth $25.5 million dollars. So making a move for Dozier now, would likely mean he gets time at third base. Dozier hasn’t logged a single game at the hot corner his entire big league career, which makes it hard to believe Mozeliak would envision Dozier playing third base over Jhonny Peralta. The Cardinals are looking to improve the defense as noted in an earlier article, but Wong is actually the better defensive second baseman. In terms of defensive runs saved, Wong hasn’t ranked lower than seventh since 2014, while Dozier hasn’t ranked higher than 12th in that time period. The bat would certainly be a helpful addition to a Cardinals lineup lacking in power hitters, but is the return cost worth it? I’m no general manager by any stretch of the imagination, but if the Twins are looking to deal a hitter with good defense and a 20-plus home runs per year bat, they’ll be looking for a hefty return. A return that could include Alex Reyes, Kolten Wong, and Trevor Rosenthal. Especially after teams saw what it took to get Adam Eaton from the Whitesox, the rest of the markets value is sure to increase. Darren Wolfson of KTSP in Minneapolis said despite the Cardinals activity surrounding Dozier the Los Angeles Dodgers remain the frontrunners. Dozier update: told LAD still very much in it. Here’s the new wrinkle: STL very much in it, + Nats & Giants remain in dialogue. #MNTwins — Darren Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) December 26, 2016 The Dodgers have a number of potential prospects they’re willing to part with and have a much larger void at the second base position than the Cardinals. Los Angeles has also been tied to the possibility of resigning former second baseman Chase Utley as well as discussing the possibility of a trade with the Detroit Tigers for Ian Kinsler. However, Kinsler has a no trade clause and would only approve a trade to the Dodgers if he were to get an extension. The Cardinals and Dodgers were previously entrenched in discussions with third baseman Justin Turner, who eventually resigned with Los Angeles for four years at $64 million dollars. Also in the mix reportedly for Dozier’s services are the Washington Nationals and the San Francisco Giants. Although, It’s hard to imagine the level of interest coming from Washington’s front office to be very high after dealing three of their best prospects to Chicago in exchange for Eaton. The Giants like the Cardinals are in need of a big bat, more than they need the defense, but with Dozier only under contract for another two seasons, the likelihood that Minnesota eats some of the contract is slim, making it an unappealing acquisition for San Francisco.

Mel Stottlemyref: Former New York Yankees Ace Pitcher, Coach Better After 'Fighting For His Life'

The latest news on New York Yankees great, Mel Stottlemyre, Sr., offers a glimmer of hope. The former MLB pitcher and coach has battled cancer for over a decade. According to a family member, Stottlemyre was hit with another health scare this week but is faring better, according to the New York Daily News. Mel Stottlemyre, 75, was admitted to a hospital in Seattle after falling ill from complications due to his cancer treatment. On Thursday, sources quoted his wife, Jean, after she offered an early update on his health scare. “He’s doing much better. We saw a big turnaround with Mel over the last 24 hours. He’s not in a life-threatening situation right now.” Some speculated that Stottlemyre was losing his battle with cancer. However, the wife clarified that her husband became ill after contracting an infection during a round of chemotherapy. Thoughts & Prayers for my fav #Yankees player, Mel Stottlemyre, in the hospital continuing his long cancer fight. pic.twitter.com/JvpZfIuDUs — Greg (@GSIMPROV) December 24, 2016 On Friday, one of Stottlemyre’s sons, Todd, took to Facebook and offered more insight into what stricken the former All-Star. Earlier, he informed fans on social media that his father was “fighting for his life.” “Our family has been overwhelmed with Joy at the amount of love and prayers for my father and family. Please know that the greatest warrior I have ever known is doing a lot better,” Stottlemyre said in the post. “He is recovering at God speed and he is looking forward to getting out of the hospital. It’s just a matter of time before he is fishing again. Please share this post so that all the people who have been praying know that their prayers have been answered and that our family is forever grateful. We will continue to pray for the less fortunate during this holiday season. May God Bless You and Merry Christmas” Newsday wrote that Stottlemyre was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 1999 while still coaching the Yankees. The Mayo Clinic describes the conditions as one that forms in a type of white blood cell called “plasma” cell. The onset of the disease takes place when cancer cells in the blood crowd out healthy ones in the bone marrow. Stottlemyre’s son says his father suffers from a litany of ailments. Still, he applauds the baseball great for his strength and resilience in the face of the blood malignancy. After retirement, Stottlemyre went on to coach for New York. He underwent an operation using his stem cells to treatment cancer. He continued coaching in 2000 until his retirement from baseball five years later. He remained in good health until he fell ill again in 2011; reportedly, cancer returned — “this time with a vengeance.” A string of hospitalizations followed, with some lasting for several weeks. Last year in June, Stottlemyre sought and received permission from his treatment team to attend Old-Timers Day in New York. At that time, he wasn’t in good health. He spoke about how his life is “controlled by cancer.” Still, he remained in good spirits. At the event, his former team surprised the Yankee star with an honorary plaque. He followed up with a riveting speech. “If I never get to come to another Old Timers Day. I will take these memories and I’ll start another baseball club, coaching up there, wherever they need me. Son: #MelStottlemyre fighting for his life https://t.co/UuW78Coao8 pic.twitter.com/j7beSaWPO5 — Zesty MLB News (@zesty_mlb) December 24, 2016 “The pinstripes, to me, they mean everything. It’s my ballclub. This is my second home. It’s been a thrill over the years to wear this uniform. I can honestly say every time I put this uniform on — even though we weren’t — I felt unbeatable.” For a short time in early 2016, Mel Stottlemyre’s health improved. Doctors credited the improvement to a new chemotherapy drug. Fans and friends are relieved about the good news, especially during the holiday season.

MLB Rumors: New York Mets Looking for Catchers After Travis D'Arnaud Injury Setback? – Hall Of Fame Magazine

MLB Rumors: New York Mets Looking for Catchers After Travis D’Arnaud Injury Setback?

New York Mets starting catcher Travis d’Arnaud suffered injury setback and is out indefinitely. Kevin Plawecki looks to step up for the meantime as the team is currently thin at the position with only Rene Rivera as backup catcher aside from Plawecki.

According to ESPN, Travis d’Arnaud received platelet-rich plasma injection after experiencing discomfort when he tried to throw in team practice. d’Arnaud has just returned from a rotator cuff injury and this recent setback could mean opportunities to shine for Kevin Plawecki.

Travis d’Arnaud has often looked out of sorts this season as he struggled offensively and defensively. Kevin Plawecki is also playing poor offensively, hitting average of only .299 but still commendable when compared to d’Arnaud’s .196 while another backup Rene Rivera is considered one of the worst at bat in MLB. The New York Mets hope Kevin Plawecki improves leaps and bounds given the extra minutes he will get while their starting catcher is sidelined.

The New York Mets is looking forward to quick recovery of d’Arnaud but if the injury lingers, the team should explore free agency in July for catchers. The New York Mets is bent on being contenders again after experiencing a hot run last season. Yoenis Cespedes and Travis d’Arnaud were considered catalyst in that run, CBS Sports reports.

If healthy, what Travis d’Arnaud brings to the table for New York Mets that Rene Rivera or Kevin Plawecki cannot is his balance of offensive and defensive game. This season, d’Arnaud clearly has not shown the full arsenal of his game; his rotator cuff injury is a major concern among catchers in MLB. But last year, when the team went on a tear, Travis d’Arnaud’s batting average was .321 and had 8 homeruns in that period, even tallying 3 homers in the postseason.
