There are already 141 days left for the PLAY BALL. Today we come with good news from one of our own, the most talked about free agency and a change that could be significant by 2022 in the final order of the AL West.
Luis Robert Moirán
The Chicago White Sox center fielder was removed from game four of the Division Series against the Boston team with a right leg injury. The Cuban is fully recovered and will be in the Opening Day lineup.
Rick Hahn said Luis Robert is fine after leaving Game 4 of the ALDS with right leg tightness
“He’s fine … I wanted to leave Game 4, too.”
Asked about roster needs vs. roster wants, Hahn tried to make a Drake reference to classic rock enthusiast @VinnieDuber. It did not land.

Rick Hahn, GM of the Windy City South Side, said that “Okay (Robert, after all, I wanted to get out of game 4 too”
The Cincinatti Reds pitcher had a reasonably satisfying season with his team. In 32 starts, he had a 3.98 ERA and 192 strikeouts. Franchise GM Nick Krall recently commented that “We will be adjusting the payroll to put the money in scouting and talent development within our system.”
Trade market update: The #Mariners are among the teams to check in with the #Reds on right-hander Luis Castillo. Seattle has one of the industry’s top farm systems, and Jerry Dipoto isn’t shy about making major trades. @MLBNetwork @MLB

Luis is a strong candidate for a salary increase via arbitration so the Reds might consider putting him on the market in exchange for prospects and cash. Jerry Dipoto of the Seattle Mariners has never been shy when it comes to the market and perhaps an arm like Castillo’s is what is missing in the organization to reach the postseason that he escaped in 2021. They have already marked the ground with the Reds on the subject and the news is evolving.
Correa or Seager to the Yankees?
Representatives from the two shortstops that top the list of free agents for 2022 have been active.
Meetings between them and Bryan Cashman are reported even though it is too early for a deal to be closed. Without a doubt, the Bronx Mules are one of the few teams in the Big Top that have the financial capacity to put on the table of the two 27-year-old players the offer that will put them on the verge of retirement (surely above the 200 and a half million of more than 30 per season).

Because of the characteristics of each one, many put Seager closer to the Big Apple. The truth is that the Yankees need to deliver a coup of authority on the table and end the agonizing drought of prominence that has haunted them in the past decade.
