The MLB offseason is now a little over three weeks old, and the top players on the free-agent market are still looking for work.
The market for Josh Hamilton is developing very slowly, in no small part thanks to the fact that baseball’s richest teams don’t seem all that interested in signing him. However, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com recently reported that the Boston Red Sox could get involved in the sweepstakes for the possibly former Texas Rangers slugger.
Elsewhere, there’s a report out from Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald that the Los Angeles Dodgers are the team to beat in the hunt for free-agent right-hander Zack Greinke. The Dodgers are also in the mix for old friend Hiroki Kuroda, and it bodes well for them that he’s apparently been telling friends that his preference is to pitch in Southern California again, according to Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles.
It’s also been reported by Heyman and others that Kuroda is open to returning to Japan, meaning the New York Yankees are in a bit of a tight spot with the pitcher.
So what should everyone make of these rumors? Do they have any legs, or should they be taken with a grain of salt?
