Yoan Moncada could start at 3B this year? photo
There's been speculation all off-season that Moncada could change positions after making 21 errors at second base a season ago. Moncada played a little bit of third base with the Red Sox back in 2016 so it sounds like Chicago would have him and Yolmer Sanchez flip spots. The dual ...

Harvey was originally supposed to be sidelined for a week and a half so it's a great sign he's progressing this quickly. He's a bit behind schedule right now but should ultimately have no problem getting ready for Opening Day.

Derek Dietrich agrees to minor league contract with Reds photo
Dietrich is coming off of a fairly solid season where he slashed .265/.330/.421 with 16 homers with the Marlins. Getting away from the Marlins park should help him a lot as he slashed .290/.363/.496 with 12 homers on the road. He'll add to their depth for both the outfield and ...

Tyler Glasnow throwing harder than ever this spring photo
Glasnow was throwing 96.5 mph last season, so this is a big spike. It, of course, remains to be seen if the velocity jump will last. Cash also added that the key for Glasnow this season will be to remain consistent. The 25-year-old is an appealing breakout candidate in the ...
