Shohei Ohtani wins AL Rookie of the Year photo
Ohtani received 25-of-30 first place votes. Miguel Andujar received the other five. Ohtani was actually a better hitter than Andujar in 2018. Ohtani posted a .925 OPS while Andujar posted a .855 mark. Andujar hit five more homers but had over 200 more plate appearances than the two-way phenom. As ...

Acuña beat out fellow phenoms Juan Soto and Walker Buehler for the honor. The young Braves outfielder was fantastic this season, particularly in the second half. Acuña finished the year with a .293 average and 26 homers. He also hit a team record eight lead off homers. He’s going to ...

Hyun-Jin Ryu will accept Dodgers qualifying offer photo
None of the other players offered a QO are expected to accept. Ryu posted a fantastic 1.97 ERA in 2018, but was able to pitch just 82 1/3 innings in the regular season. He'll look to re-build his value before taking a shot at free agency next winter.

Carlos Correa undergoes surgery for deviated septum photo
Correa said he's hopeful that the procedure will fix the breathing issues he's experienced as a result of the deviated septum. The shortstop had a down season in 2018, but we've seen seemingly small issues such as this allow for significant improvement in players in the past. Hopefully, this will ...

Whit Merrifield not shopped by Royals photo
The Royals made wholesale changes in 2018, but the team appears content to build their next winning roster around Merrifield. The speedster continued to be a fantasy asset in 2018, but his ceiling will continue to be capped by the lineup that he's part of in KC.

Carlos Santana shopped by Phillies photo
Santana was signed last offseason to a significant free agent deal, and he was decent in his first year with Philadelphia. His 24 homers were good, but not great for a first baseman, and his batting average was severely lacking. He continues to be a solid contributor but more so ...

Kole Calhoun made available in trade photo
Calhoun got off to an awful start to the season before missing significant time with injury. However, he came back healthy and returned to previous year's form to be a useful fantasy piece down the stretch. Given the depth of the Angels' offense, Calhoun is a good bet to bounce ...
