Ranking the best starting pitchers in the 2021 MLB season.
Where do the Dodgers rank in the pecking order of best MLB rotations?
It’s probably not how the New York Mets or Trevor Bauer would have envisioned it playing out, but here we are in late January with the 2020 National League Cy Young award winner still looking for a team.
The 2020 MLB offseason is right around the corner and free agency promises to shake up the competitive balance yet again. A shortened 2020 campaign helped many players improve their numbers due to having a smaller workload. Therefore, their profiles also became more impressive while their value increased. Similarly, some players suffered, which will lead some teams to complete almost bargain deals with productive players.
We were lucky enough to witness a dramatic last hour at the trade deadline. The deadline, for the first time a sole one, saw some shocking moves announced just past the 9pm UK time mark, one of which was Zack Greinke to the Houston Astros.
The Cincinnati Reds acquired Trevor Bauer as part of a three team trade. The most valuable player that the Reds gave up was Taylor Trammell, who was sent to the San Diego Padres.
The New York Yankees missed out on trading for Trevor Bauer on Wednesday night with the trade deadline just hours away.
The Cleveland Indians traded Trevor Bauer to the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night, with the San Diego Padres sending players in a three-team deal.
Cleveland Indians were overwhelming American League Central favourites in March. Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer had remained with The Tribe despite trade talks, and their supremacy in the division was expected to continue, even if with a slimmer margin.
Cleveland Indians remain the strong favourites for the American League Central despite cutting costs during the offseason.
