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.


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)

RHP Suk-Min Yoon: Worked out on the campus of UC-Irvine on Friday. The Orioles and Giants were in attendance. (Naver)

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. (

Orioles: Contract extension talks with 1B Chris Davis have not progressed. They did make him an offer earlier this winter.

Rays: Still having trade talks regarding C Jose Lobaton. He is the odd man out following the Jose Molina signing and Ryan Hanigan trade. (Tampa Bay Times)
