I’m prioritizing the more important moves and letting MLBTR tell you the details.
Great move by Atlanta, they’ve been the most active team so far and are doing great at filling their holes.
Weird trade by Milwaukee and San Diego. Where is Trent Grisham going to play unless he can play center field? Why does Milwaukee need Luis Urias when they have Keston Hiura? Is he done as a starter at the Major League level?
Pittsburgh has a new manager. I have no opinion on this.
Did Seattle get a new closer? Solid move by them.
Good move by San Diego that will strengthen their already good bullpen. They did overpay however.
The Los Angeles Angels’ big addition to their rotation. They won’t add anyone much better. As I’ve been saying on Twitter and comments on message boards, they won’t spend on elite pitching. Good move for Baltimore as he never broke out and is a free agent in 2 years.
Good move by both Milwaukee and Seattle. Milwaukee now has a new catcher and he might actually be productive next season.
A typical move by the New York Mets and a good one for Houston. Houston got rid of an overpaid player that they didn’t need and the Mets get their centerfielder: cheap and not good enough to be a starter.
Solid though risky re-signing by Minnesota.
Interedting trade between Tampa Bay and San Diego. Tommy Pham was a good “tablesetter” for Tampa Bay, though he is injury-prone. Did they really need more power in acquiring Hunter Renfroe (who is his direct replacement)? They are getting a better defender (1.5 dWAR for Renfroe, -0.4 for Pham in 2019) so maybe they see something there? Pham is going to be San Diego’s CF, so he has to improve his defense, but if he does then the move makes perfect sense for them.
Great though risky move by Washington. His health is the only concern here.
Good move by Colorado, though their bullpen moves usually don’t work out.
The Los Angeles Angels gave out a contender for worst contract of the offseason. Take away his juiced ball inflated contract year and Anthony Rendon is an above average player, definitely not a star. Horrible horrible deal for the Angels.
Another good move by the New York Mets, who suddenly have upside and rotation depth.
Weird gamble by Tampa Bay. How many first basemen do they need?
Why should Milwaukee try to win? It’s easier to pick up scraps. No offense to the player but this is ridiculous.
Risky gamble by Texas. They got their ace but will Corey Kluber be the same player that he was prior to 2019? He’s coming off a terrible season and is moving to a hitter’s park while in decline. On the other hand, what if he bounces back?
Bizarre move by Arizona. They’re not going to the playoffs next season and should be rebuilding, why waste money? The Los Angeles Angels are now officialky looking at a horrible offseason, as they missed out on all the top starting pitchers available this offseason, and starting pitching was their one big need.
Milwaukee has a new LF. I think that this is not going to work out well as he’s more of a BABIP luck player.
Good move by the Chicago White Sox, they need more however.
The Los Angeles Angels’ horrible offseason continues. This is what they do to build a contender around the game’s best hitter?!
Shocking questionable signing by Toronto. Why were both LA teams and Minnesota unable to beat this contract? Why did Toronto sign an injury-prone starter in his 30’a while they’re rebuilding? I do however think that this will end up being a very bad contract.
A letdown from Minnesota. If getting a bottom of the rotation starter and an injury-prone “past his sudden breakout” starter are their big rotation moves, they may have already ceded the division to Cleveland.
Finally some good news out of Anaheim. A solid signing.
Interesting trade. I’m not sure who won.
Potential bargain for Arizona. It’s an overpay if his power doesn’t come back however.
Terrible deal for Minnesota, who are now stuck with a declining player about to be past his prime, who was injured for most of two years just prior to his contract year.
Good move by Atlanta to get a new middle of the order bat. In fact it’s an upgrade.
Miami signed a new closer. Good move.
