Report: Cuban prospect Yoan Moncada nearing free agency
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Cuban prospect Yoan Moncada's journey to free agency took another step forward after recent changes by the Obama Administration now allow native Cubans who can prove permanent residency in a third country to receive a general unblocking license, sources told Yahoo Sports.

Moncada, 19, is a switch hitting shortstop waiting to be cleared by the U.S. government's Office of Foreign Asset Control before he can sign with a major-league team. The Brewers, Rangers, Giants, Dodgers, Yankees, Red Sox and Padres have recently seen Moncada perform in a private workout.

Adrian Gonzalez confident in 'deeper lineup' for Dodgers
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez had an MLB-best 116 RBI in 2014, mostly batting in front of the likes of Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez. While both players are no longer part of the Dodgers' batting order, Gonzalez is not worried about lineup protection, per the Los Angeles Times.

"I think we're deeper, so I don't think we're going to be so dependent on the middle of the order," Gonzalez said Monday. "People say that we lost power, but I think we just put the power in different areas of the lineup."

Some of the key acquisitions this offseason for the Dodgers have been shortstop Jimmy Rollins, catcher Yasmani Grandal and second baseman Howie Kendrick. Gonzalez is confident in the new additions to the lineup.

"They're going to battle every at-bat," Gonzalez said. "They're going to be prepared. I'm not saying that we didn't before, but I think the guys that we got are guys that are going to be tougher to game plan for. From that end, it will be a deeper lineup."
