Pitchers and catchers report within just a few weeks and there's still a decent group of starting pitchers sitting there unsigned. Things seem to be moving, even if slowly. Let's take a look at the day that was.
The Reds and Aroldis Chapman have agreed on a $5 million deal for the 2014 season, avoiding arbitration (via Joel Sherman). The club was originally offering $4.6 million while Chapman was asking for $5.4, so it's a 50-50 compromise. How nice.
REPORTS, RUMORS AND SPECULATION
Astros: Hall of Famer and former Rangers president Nolan Ryan met with the Astros owner (Jim Crane) and president (Ryan's son Reid) over a possible return to the franchise in some capacity. If he does return, expect his role to be something along the lines of "advisor" and not nearly as hands-on as he was in Texas, reports MLB.com's Brian McTaggart.
Blue Jays: Jon Heyman has a column up discussing the Blue Jays situation that is a must-read.
Yoon Suk-min: The Korean export has received four offers and is currently in discussions with two of those four -- and could sign very soon, per a Korean report (via @MyKBO). We knew that previously the Twins were in on Yoon, but that was back in late October and the Twins have already landed two starting pitchers this offseason.
