The best indication that Edwin Encarnacion isn't getting the offers he's looking for: Agent Paul Kinzer telling teams there's no hurry to get him signed. Indians, Rockies interested. But Red Sox appear "very unlikely."
Mark Melancon and Rich Hill got the big bucks, but there's value to be found in Joaquin Benoit and Steve Pearce.

Blue Jays All-Star catcher Russell Martin and pitcher Roberto Osuna have both been confirmed to participate in the 2017 World Baseball Classic. Martin will suit up for Canada, while Osuna will play for the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Story

The qualifying offer (& 1st-round pick attached) is having a big impact on Edwin Encarnacion's market. The Astros' & Yankees' deals this weekend with Carlos Beltran & Matt Holliday took 2 of Encarnacion's prime suitors off the board. And he's no longer a priority for the Blue Jays after their signing of Kendrys Morales. Encarnacion's agent, Paul Kinzer, is still projecting confidence and telling teams he has interest from "2 or 3 teams" whose identity hasn't surfaced. But Encarnacion is becoming a textbook case for why the union made eliminating first-round draft-pick compensation such a top priority in these labor talks.
The Blue Jays are reportedly among the teams to show interest in free-agent first baseman Mitch Moreland.
Much to the dismay of his mother, who is of Puerto Rican descent, Marcus Stroman announced he will play for Team USA in the 2017 World Baseball Classic.
