All you need to know: MLB rumors, news roundup for Feb. 2
Let's recap a slow Sunday of baseball news. It's almost like there was some other major sporting event going on.
Unsurprisingly, baseball news was rather slow on Super Bowl Sunday. Pitchers and catchers are due to report to spring training in two weeks or so, so I imagine the market for the remaining big name free agents will pick up this coming week. Here's a recap of the day's hot stove news.
RUMORS & SPECULATION
RHP Bronson Arroyo: Still seeking a three-year deal, or at least a two-year deal with a vesting option. The Diamondbacks and Dodgers could get involved if he's willing to take a straight two-year contract. (Boston Globe)
Giants: GM Brian Sabean said he doesn't have the "flexibility" to add another free agent starting pitcher. (San Francisco Chronicle)
Marlins: Team president David Sampson said the team is still seeking depth players. "Certainly, you're looking at some potential non-roster invites. We're looking to bring people in to compete, because you just don't know," he said. (MLB.com)
