Fantasy Impact: Jon Heyman adds that the deal is worth close to $3 million and includes incentives. The 25-year-old struggled in 2019 but should serve as a super-utilityman for the Red Sox in 2020.

The New York Post reports Brett Gardner and the Yankees have come to terms on a one-year, $12.5 million contract for the 2020 season. (Source: George A. King III on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The deal includes a $20 million club option for 2021. The 36-year-old has spent his entire career in New York and should once again see regular action in left field next year. In 2019 Gardner hit .251 with 28 homers and 10 stolen bases.

Free-agent starting pitcher Rick Porcello has agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with the New York Mets, according to multiple reports. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Porcello won the Cy Young award a few seasons ago but had a down year in 2019, so he is hoping to reset his market with a one-year deal in New York. A switch to the National League and out of the AL East should help his value, but the most important thing for Porcello next season will be limiting home runs after allowing 1.60 HR/9 last year.

Free-agent third baseman Anthony Rendon is in agreement on a seven-year, $245 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels, according to multiple reports. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Angels were reportedly in on Gerrit Cole before he signed with the New York Yankees, and it appears that they quickly pivoted to Rendon. The seven years and $245 million are the same numbers that the Nationals gave to Rendon's former teammate Stephen Strasburg earlier this week. Rendon is coming off a career year in 2019, hitting .319 with 117 runs scored, 34 home runs, 126 RBI, and five stolen bases, and he'll now join Mike Trout in the middle of the Los Angeles lineup.

Braves manager Brian Snitker said Wednesday that Freddie Freeman is doing well following arthroscopic elbow surgery from October. (Source: David O'Brien on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Freeman reportedly told Snitker that his elbow hasn't felt this good in a long time. The first baseman struggled down the stretch in 2019 but should once again be an elite, early-round fantasy pick come draft season.

Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports the Angels have expressed interest in Corey Kluber. (Source: Fabian Ardaya on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ardaya adds that Anthony Rendon is the team's priority right now but they are wanting to keep their options open. Cleveland is no stranger to trading away expensive stars and Kluber would instantly improve the Angels' so-so starting rotation.

Astros GM Jeff Lunhow says Lance McCullers (elbow) won't have any restrictions during spring training. (Source: Brian McTaggart on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McCullers missed the entire 2019 season following Tommy John surgery. He could skyrocket up draft boards if he shows he's healthy come February and March.

Adam Jones agreed to a two-year deal with the Orix Buffaloes of Nippon Professional in Japan on Tuesday. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jones will head to Japan after agreeing to a two-year, $8 million guaranteed deal. The deal also includes a team option in 2022. Jones slashed .260/.313/.414 with 16 home runs, 67 RBI, 66 runs scored and two stolen bases across 527 plate appearances last year. The 34 year old spent 11 seasons with Baltimore after spending 2019 in Arizona. Jones will spend the next two seasons in Japan.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports Scott Oberg and the Rockies have agreed on a three-year, $13 million extension. (Source: Bob Nightengale on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The deal includes an $8 million club option for 2023. The 29-year-old has been one of Colorado's few effective relievers the past couple seasons. He posted a 2.25 ERA in 56 innings in 2019.

Ben Nicholson-Smith of SportsNet reports the Blue Jays and free agent starter Tanner Roark are in agreement on a contract. (Source: Ben Nicholson-Smith on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: MLB Network's Jon Heyman hears that the deal is for two years and $24 million. The 33-year-old posted a 4.35 ERA in 165 1/3 innings last season and should help stabilize Toronto's rotation.

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports the Brewers are signing reliever Josh Lindbloom to a three-year, $9.125 million contract. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The 32-year-old has been dominant in Korea over the past couple of seasons, posting a 2.50 ERA over 194 2/3 innings. He could wind up pitching in the back half of the Milwaukee rotation next year.

ESPN's Jeff Passan reports the Dodgers are signing free agent reliever Blake Treinen to a one-year, $10 million contract. (Source: Jeff Passan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Passan adds that Treinen also had offers in a similar range but wanted to go to Los Angeles. Treinen was a colossal bust in 2019 after pitching as the best reliever in baseball the season prior. He'll begin the 2020 campaign as a set-up man for the Dodgers and could eventually see save chances if Kenley Jansen misses time.

Michael Wacha and the Mets are reportedly closing in on a one-year contract. (Source: Joel Sherman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: We don't know the exact financial terms yet but the deal will reportedly be heavy on incentives. In 2019 Wacha posted a 4.76 ERA with 104 strikeouts in 126 2/3 innings.


The Royals mentioned that Salvador Perez could see "considerable" playing time at first base in 2020. (Source: Alec Lewis on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This would be a boon to Perez's fantasy value, as it would add flexibility to allow him to likely play more during the season while maintaining his catcher eligibility. If this comes to fruition, Perez could push into the top-5 at the position. Currently, he seems like a lock to go as a top-10 catcher in 2020 fantasy drafts even coming off his injury.

The Brewers have said that they're still in contact with free agent Eric Thames. (Source: Tom Haudricourt on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Brewers opted to decline a $7.5 million club option for Thames last month, but it appears a reunion at a reduced price could still happen. Thames saw less than a full-time role in 2019, but he was still productive in his time with the Brewers. He posted an OPS of .851 to go with 25 homers in 459 plate appearances.

Nomar Mazara was traded from the Rangers to the White Sox on Tuesday in exchange for outfielder Steele Walker. (Source: TR Sullivan on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Mazara battled multiple injuries and had an up-and-down campaign for the Rangers in 2019. He slashed .268/.318/.469 with 19 home runs, 66 RBI, 69 runs scored and four stolen bases across 469 plate appearances last year. At just 24 years old, Mazara should slot in as the everyday right fielder and could breakout in 2020 with a new change of scenery.

The New York Yankees have agreed to sign Gerrit Cole to a record-breaking $324M. It's a nine-year deal that pays Cole $36 million annually. There is a no-trade clause and the contract contains an opt-out after the 2024 season. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Houston did wonders for Cole after revamping his repertoire of pitches. Once an inconsistent starter with ace potential in Pittsburgh, he dominated the Majors the last two seasons with Houston posting 35 wins and just 10 losses. Wins don't show how dominant he was though. During his time with the Astros, he posted a 2.69 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and had 602 strikeouts. The move to Yankee Stadium is a downgrade, but if he can continue to strike batters out, it may not make a huge difference in 2020.

Didi Gregorius signed a one year, $14 million deal with the Phillies Tuesday. (Source: Joel Sherman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gregorius will reunite with former Yankees manager Joe Giradi In Philadelphia. He slashed .238/.276/.441 with 16 home runs, 61 RBI, 47 runs scored and two stolen bases across across 382 plate appearances last season. Gregorius will look to bounce back after having a full year to recover from Tommy John surgery. With the Gregorius signing, look for Jean Segura to shift over to second base. Gregorius is a bounce-back candidate after a injury plagued 2019.

Kevin Gausman has agreed to a one-year deal with the San Francisco Giants, worth $9 million. (Source: Jeff Passan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gausman, a five-year veteran, has seen stretches of greatness in his time with the Orioles and Braves. He finished last season with a 10.03/9 strikeout rate, a career-high. A move to the pitcher-friendly confines of Oracle Park should prove beneficial to Gausman's fantasy value.

Josh Osich agreed to terms with the Red Sox on a one-year deal worth up to $850,000. (Source: Chris Cotillo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Osich is a journeyman reliever who found moderate success with the Giants during the 2019 season. He will attempt to claim a spot in the Red Sox bullpen in 2020.
