Ely Sussman | Fish Stripes: Early Tuesday, Jon Heyman tweeted that the Marlins were interested in Adam Duvall but they would need to stretch the budget to afford him. Somehow, a team with the fourth-lowest payroll in the majors found the room to sign a professional baseball player to a one-year deal.

Rob Mains | Baseball Prospectus $: PECOTA projected standings were released on Tuesday which meant that if you’re a fan of Atlanta, the White Sox, or the A’s, you had plenty to be mad about yesterday. Here’s Rob Mains to explain why PECOTA hates your favorite and also why it’s right to do so.

Brady Klopfer | McCovey Chronicles: Now, PECOTA actually likes what the Giants building which is making several low-risk moves with high upside. They made another such move on Tuesday by signing Jake McGee to a two-year deal. It’s just too bad the Giants play in the same division as the Padres and Dodgers and no one will ever notice the fruits of their quiet, competent offseason.
