FanGraphs | Craig Edwards: The idea of a three-team trade involving the Yankees, Mets, and Marlins with JT Realmuto and Noah Syndergaard, and now Miguel Andujar could be part of it. That could make a ton of sense for all sides depending on what the other return players would be.

The Ringer | Ben Lindbergh: Harold Baines barely got more than 5% of the vote, yet he was inducted into Cooperstown via the Veteran’s Committee. That has been the source of most of the worst performing Hall of Famers. That isn’t a knock against him personally, but it does extend the Hall to that extent that writers have been reluctant to do in the past.

ESPN Insider | Jeff Sullivan: Let’s hear some surprising predictions! Manny Machado to the White Sox? Corey Kluber to the Dodgers for an Alex Verdugo package? The Yankees trading for Zack Greinke? Anything is possible in an event swirling with rumors and moving parts.
