Around the Majors
Jon Heyman said on Sunday that the Red Sox are interested in signing not only Pablo Sandoval, but their old prospect Hanley Ramirez as well.
Later last night, Ken Rosenthal told us that Ramirez is headed to Boston today to sign a five-year, $90 million deal.
Rosenthal also reported yesterday that the Rangers are willing to deal any of their middle infield prospects for the right price. The Mets, of course, are craving a shortstop.
The Athletics have acquired Ike Davis in a trade with the Pirates. In order to make room for him on its roster, Oakland designated Andrew Brown, another former Met, for assignment.
Torii Hunter could be heading back to Minnesota for a Twins team in need of a veteran outfielder.
The 2015 Hall of Fame ballot will be unveiled today, which means we'll once again measure up the chances that Mike Piazza has to reach baseball immortality.
