MLBTR’s original features from the past week:
- Zach Links was among the reporters who joined the Mets’ conference call after they signed Tim Tebow to a minor league deal Thursday. Both Tebow and Mets general manager Sandy Alderson spoke about the former NFL quarterback’s new career.
- Jeff Todd examined the free agent stock of Cardinals first baseman/outfielder Brandon Moss, who has bounced back from a rough 2015 to serve as an important part of the Redbirds’ lineup in a contract year.
- Steve Adams highlighted eight former top prospects who rejoined their major league teams this month and are now looking to make their respective marks in the season’s final weeks.
- Before Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw returned Friday from his two-plus-month absence, I polled readers on whether the three-time Cy Young winner deserves serious consideration for the award this year.
- Steve surveyed readers on the future of Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe, who could be a non-tender or trade candidate during the upcoming offseason.
