Key stories to look out for on Opening Day.
Baseball fans are truly living in a golden era of shortstops. The star power at that position is incredible, and we’re going to see that next winter when several of them hit the free-agent market. In the meantime, let’s take a look at the 10 best shortstops heading into the 2021 MLB season.
Third base is stacked - who's set to be the best in 2021?
It's a fitting time to look ahead at MLB's best teams in 2021.
Fernando Tatis signed an historic contract extension. The Padres have given Tatis a full no-trade clause in a $340 million, 14-year deal.
Where do the Dodgers rank in the pecking order of best MLB rotations?
Maybe some other teams fancy joining in with the MLB offseason.
Just 24 hours after making a trade to acquire Rays ace Blake Snell, the San Diego Padres made another massive move toward their increasingly evident goal of a World Series, trading for Yu Darvish of the Chicago Cubs, alongside his personal catcher Victor Caratini. In return, Chicago got RHP Zach Davies and four young prospects.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have just watched their nearest divisional rivals trade for Blake Snell and Yu Darvish. The Padres have become the biggest story of the MLB offseason, adding two elite starting pitchers to an already talented core.
This trade surprised many in the MLB world, as Snell still has three years left on his contract, and without a notably high price on those years too. He was due $10.5 million in 2021 and the following two years would cost $12.5m and $16m respectively, before he would become a free agent going into his age-31 season of 2024.
Six-time All-Star and four-time Silver Slugger award winner Nelson Cruz is hitting the free agency market once again.
The San Diego Padres are once again a relevant team in MLB. After spending several years floundering near the bottom of the NL West, the Padres are on the up.
After an action-filled deadline just 30 games into the season, rosters are set for the most open and exciting pennant race in recent years.
The MLB trade deadline was one of the busiest in recent years. Teams were moving pieces constantly. While the uncertainty over finances made some front offices more cautious, it was certainly eventful with teams either pushing for a postseason berth or quickly retooling to bolster the farm.
A few days ago, Fernando Tatis Jr. became the latest player to be criticised for breaking baseball’s unwritten rules.
