Kevin Kiermaier 'very upset' over Rays' recent moves

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier said he is "100 percent frustrated and very upset" over the team's recent personnel moves.

What It Means:

On Saturday, the team designated outfielder Corey Dickerson for assignment, prior to acquiring C.J. Cron from the Los Angeles Angels. The team traded pitcher Jake Odorizzi to the Minnesota Twins for a minor leaguer. The moves saved the team $10 million in salary. Kiermaier's in his fourth season with the team and said he'll just have to move on from it.

Last year, Kiermaier totaled 15 home runs, 39 RBI and 16 stolen bases in 98 games.

Nationals' Bryce Harper not talking beyond 2018 season

Washington Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper said in his first spring media session that he doesn't want to discuss anything beyond the 2018 season.

What It Means:

Harper's due to become a free agent following this year's campaign, and there's been a lot of chatter around his possible destinations. He could be in for a record-breaking contract, but he's not focusing on it. "Just want to let you guys know, I will not be discussing anything relative to 2019, at all," he said.

In 2017, Harper played in 111 games and hit 29 home runs with 87 RBI and a .416 wOBA.

Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson expects to become free agent following 2018 season

Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson said that he wants to focus on the season and that he expects to become a free agent heading into 2019.

What It Means:

According to The Athletic's John Lott, Donaldson said he and the Blue Jays have talked an extension but the two "don't see eye to eye" at this point. He added that talks could "ramp back up" at a later point. It's likely that he tests the market after the upcoming season, during which he'll play under a one-year, $23 million deal.

A year ago, Donaldson accounted for 33 home runs, 78 RBI and a .403 wOBA. He led all Blue Jays hitters with a 2.43 nERD.

Toronto's Troy Tulowitzki (heel) unsure if he'll be ready for Opening Day

According to Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith, Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki did not say for sure that he would be ready for Opening Day.

What It Means:

When asked if he would be ready for Opening Day, Tulowitzki said, "I definitely want to be out there, but I'm not going to say 'yeah, for sure.' I'm going to take it day by day." The 33-year-old is recovering from ligament damage he suffered in his right ankle last season. It caused him to miss the last two months. Last week, it was revealed that he's been dealing with a chronic bone spur in his right heel. He's taking it slow, yet there's over a month until Toronto's opener on March 29th. Aledmys Diaz or Yangervis Solarte would start if he's unable to go.

In 66 games, Tulowitzki slashed .249/.300/.378 with 7 home runs and 26 RBI in 2017.

Red Sox still 'open' to signing J.D. Martinez

Per The Boston Globe's Pete Abraham, the Boston Red Sox remain "open" to signing free agent outfielder J.D. Martinez.

What It Means:

While the door remains open, Abraham notes that it isn't indefinite. In other words, the Red Sox are prepared to move on entirely if Martinez isn't open to signing with the team. Earlier reports had Boston offering the prized free agent five years and around $100 million.

Last year, Martinez ranked 7th among all hitters with a 3.43 nERD. He finished 3rd with 45 home runs on a .303 average and .438 wOBA.
