All you need to know: MLB rumors, news roundup for Dec. 24
Christmas Eve was a slow day of signings and rumors, but there were a handful of each. Here's a roundup of the day's hot stove news.
Unsurprisingly, Christmas Eve did not bring much hot stove excitement. There are indications the Rakuten Golden Eagles will post right-hander Masahiro Tanaka, but nothing has been officially announced just yet. Given all the conflicting information we've seen in recent weeks, it's best to wait for an announcement before getting exciting.
In other news, the Dodgers formally announced the signings of Chris Perez (one-year deal), J.P. Howell (two-year deal), Jamey Wright (one-year deal) and Juan Uribe (two-year deal). That's a bunch of loose ends that are now tied up. Here is a recap of the rest of the day's hot stove action:
