However, should this go through a full bankruptcy proceeding, contracts can be voided and teams won’t get paid. At that point they’ll all be able to renegotiate deals, or in some cases perhaps choose to broadcast the games themselves. This comes at a bit of a bad time for the Tigers, who only recently signed a new deal with Bally.

Former Detroit Tigers second baseman Lou Whitaker wasn’t up for election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame this year, which was travesty enough. The election, however, of former St. Louis Cardinals third basemen Scott Rolen (and, less so, Fred McGriff), put into sharper relief the inequity that Sweet Lou’s ongoing omission represents. We don’t often call out matters of baseball politics and admit that the world has bigger injustices to cut down at the plate.

Verlander closed out the 2017 season by going 5-0 down the stretch with a 1.06 ERA and a 0.647 WHIP.

He was worth just over 4 wins above replacement. Outlook: This will almost certainly be a bad deal for the Rangers when Seager is 37 years old and making $31 million in 2031. That’s why they need to maximize the front-end years.

He’s my big bro,” Sands said. To this day, Acuna serves as Sands’ hitting coach, personal trainer (along with his real brother Bryan), friend, mentor and life coach. He helped keep Sands together emotionally after his father died and he’s been with him on every step of this journey, seven rough years climbing up through first the Yankees’ and then the Phillies’ systems and through the day last September when he and Alma flew out to San Francisco to watch Sands’ make his big-league debut.

Vierling is the better hitter, but Maton may have an easier pathway to playing time with only Jonathan Schoop at second and no one assured of regular time at third base (Ryan Kreidler and Tyler Nevin are in the mix). Vierling will compete with Riley Greene, Austin Meadows, Akil Baddoo and Kerry Carpenter. When the Phillies signed Craig Kimbrel, it was noted that they have an affinity for relievers with plus stuff but poor control, feeling they can work on control but that stuff is inherent.
