A look back at the original reporting and analysis found on MLBTR the last seven days:
- On this week’s installment of the MLB Trade Rumors Podcast, host Jeff Todd was joined by David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution to talk all things Braves, including the recent additions of Juan Uribe and Chris Withrow. MLBTR’s Steve Adams also joins the show to talk about the Cardinals‘ first base options in the wake of losing Matt Adams. A new episode of the MLB Trade Rumors Podcast will be released every Thursday and can be accessed on iTunes, SoundCloud, and Stitcher.
- If you haven’t already, we encourage you to sign up for the free MLBTR Newsletter. Every week, the newsletter delivers an exclusive article to your inbox with site owner Tim Dierkes weighing in on deals, rumors, and hot stove-related topics.
- Jeff looked at the Free Agent Stock of Howie Kendrick, who seems to be somewhat underappreciated. There’s not much in the way of direct comps for a player like Kendrick, but Jeff figures that he’s likely to top Omar Infante‘s pre-2014 deal with the Royals which saw him earn $30MM+ over four years. However, Kendrick’s market could be depressed if he gets hit with a qualifying offer by Los Angeles.
- Steve fielded your questions in this week’s edition of the MLBTR chat. Steve touched on topics including the Rockies’ pitching search and the Twins’ play so far this season.
