However, other teams could be interested in acquiring the slugger’s services next year but a trade actually happening remains unlikely.

Seth Lugo remains unhappy as a reliever and is going to go after a rotation spot despite the recent additions to the team.

Around the National League East

The teams interested in Josh Donaldson should get a decision soon with both the Braves and Nationals emerging as the front runners for the third baseman.

The White Sox have reportedly signed Gio Gonzalez, while Maikel Franco is reportedly joining the Royals.

The Rangers are interested in trading for Nolan Arenado from the Rockies.

The players’ union is filing a grievance on behalf of Jacoby Ellsbury after the Yankees attempted to withhold some money owed to him.

Major League Baseball’s new deal with Nike is expected to be worth more than $1 billion.
