MLB Roundup: Things Heating Up In Advance of Winter Meetings

Good morning, baseball fans! Here’s what’s been going on around the game last 24 hours.


The San Francisco Giants have reportedly sent the Miami Marlins their proposal for a deal involving outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, according to Craig Mish of SiriusXM.

The Giants would reportedly send Heliot Ramos, Chris ShawTyler Beede and Christian Arroyo to Miami and take on $250 million of Stanton’s remaining $295 million deal. The four prospects are the Giants’ top four according to Baseball America.

As of Tuesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers have also had conversations with Miami about Stanton, but nothing is imminent at this time.


The Los Angeles Angels have agreed to terms with Kevin Maitan according to Buster Olney of ESPN. Jesse Sanchez of adds that the deal is worth $2.2 million and is pending a physical.

Maitan was considered the Atlanta Braves’ top international prospect until he was stripped from the team along with other prospects by MLB two weeks ago after the team violated international signing rules. The Braves spent $4.25 million of their 2016 international bonus pool money to land the Venezuelan infielder.


The St. Louis Cardinals have agreed to a deal with Miles Mikolas as first reported by Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.

The deal is reportedly worth a total of $15.5 million over two years. This comes on the heels of a solid three-year span Mikolas had in Japan.


The Detroit Tigers have signed outfielder Leonys Martin to a one-year, major league contract, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today on Twitter.

Martin, 29, hit just .172/.232/.281 in 49 games (138 plate appearances) between the Seattle Mariners and Chicago Cubs in 2017.


Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals have inked right-hander Wily Peralta to a one-year pact with a club option for 2019.

The 28-year-old pitched to a 5-4 record with a 7.85 ERA in 19 games for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2017.

He was a name that was briefly tied to the Mets earlier on this offseason.
