The San Francisco Giants and New York Mets have been two of the busier teams this offseason, and despite already making a number of transactions, neither appears to be done making moves just yet. With the Giants in need of outfield help and the Mets on the hunt for a second baseman, the two sides […]
When Wil Myers reports to Padres camp later this week, he’s planning to do so as a first baseman exclusively. The Padres have no designs on giving him any reps anywhere else. That is, of course, unless things change regarding a certain free-agent first baseman from Kansas City.

With roster spots up for grabs, camp battles are always an intriguing part of Spring Training, and for the Twins this year, it’s all about how the rotation will look come Opening Day.
