MLB investigating Mets, Yankees over possible improper communication regarding Aaron Judge, per report

Major League Baseball’s offseason is here, and with it comes a wonderful everyday heaping of reports, news, and notes. Below, you can discover all of the most significant to appear on Friday.

Dodgers contemplating Judge

The Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday made the rather unexpected choice to non-tender outfielder and previous NL MVP Cody Bellinger. While it’s still possible that Bellinger go back to L.A., the non-tender has actually increased speculation that the Dodgers this offseason will look for to include yet another star to the lineup. That star may be Aaron Judge: 

With the Yankees last season, Judge set the American League single-season record with 62 crowning achievement, which plus his other jaw-dropping numbers made him the AL MVP for 2022. The Yankees are anticipated to bid strongly to keep him in the fold, however the Dodgers have equivalent resources and an even more powerful current dedication to winning. The idea of including Judge to a lineup that currently consists of Freddie Freeman, Mookie Betts and Will Smith, to name a few, is no doubt an enticing one for Dodgers fans. 

Mets consult with Senga

Kodai Senga, among the most appealing free-agent beginners offered this offseason, just recently consulted with the New York Mets, according to The Athletic. 

Senga, a real complimentary representative (significance he will not undergo the publishing system the method most NPB gamers are), was ranked as the 23rd finest complimentary representative offered by CBS Sports. Here’s what we composed at the time: 

Senga, 29, is anticipated to pursue a big-league agreement this winter season after investing the very first 11 seasons of his profession with the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks of Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball league. He’s an accomplished right-hander who published a 1.89 age and a 3.18 strikeout-to-walk ratio this season throughout 148 innings. Senga’s finest pitches are his dynamic mid-90s fastball and his disastrous “ghost” forkball, a real out pitch in the majors or anywhere else. He’s efficient in stair-stepping with that mix, raising the heat prior to burying the fork. (If he lands in Chicago, possibly his label should be The Bear?) He likewise tosses a good curveball.

Senga’s representative, Joel Wolfe, has actually formerly specified that he wishes to pitch for a competitor situated in a huge market. Obviously the Mets would fulfill those preferences. 

Yankees on the trading block

Yankees middle infielders Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Gleyber Torres might both be on the trading block, according to Jon Heyman of the New York Post.

Kiner-Falefa, obtained in the exact same trade that brought Josh Donaldson previously this year, had a frustrating very first season with the Yankees. He had a hard time offensively and public-facing protective metrics were divided on his efficiency with the glove. Kiner-Falefa has one year staying prior to he receives complimentary firm.

Torres, on the other hand, has actually stopped working to build on his early profession success that saw him make successive All-Star groups in his very first 2 seasons. He is coming off his best shot in the Pandemic Era (114 OPS+), however the Yankees are obviously unbiased about moving him all the exact same. He’s 2 seasons far from complimentary firm.

It’s worth keeping in mind that the Yankees have among the leading infield potential customers in the minors, in Anthony Volpe. CBS Sports just recently ranked him 13th general.
