Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo on J.D. Martinez: "I don't think I've seen a more passionate, smarter hitter walk through his day-to-day activities. He studies, he watches as much video as I've ever seen." Arizona is hoping to re-sign Martinez but faces stiff competition. Red Sox interested, too.

Scott Boras says Red Sox haven't given him any indication that they're making Jackie Bradley Jr. available in potential trades.

Scott Boras is unsurprisingly selling free-agent first baseman Eric Hosmer based on what he calls "prestige value," a measure of intangibles that include leadership in the clubhouse, instincts on the field and a championship pedigree with the Royals.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said he was "excited" about his team's new direction after trading away the NL's MVP, Giancarlo Stanton. The old way was not working so it was time to "reset," mentioning what the current World Champs, the Houston Astros, did a few years ago when they tanked. In general, the manager who endures the tanking doesn't get to enjoy the fruits, but Mattingly said he is unworried about how he will be evaluated.

Tigers Manager Ron Gardenhire on his rebuilding club: "I have had a lot of good conversations with Al (Avila) about what we are trying to do. I understand it and I am all in with them."

Toronto Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons on the daunting challenges facing his club in the top-heavy American League East: "If you want to beat those guys (Yankees/Red Sox) you got to try and keep pace. You still have to have your plan and target your guys and hopefully land them."

Cubs announce they've signed Drew Smyly to a 2-year deal.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cubs signed lefty Drew Smyly to a 2 year deal. He had Tommy John surgery last summer and will rehab for most of 2018. Brandon Morrow's deal is official as well. Two years plus a club/vesting option for 2020.

I was wrong: Phillies not closing on deal with Addison Reed. They are close on deal with Tommy Hunter.

Evaluators expect Reed's deal with the Phillies will be similar to the Shaw deal, $9m annually for his three years.
