The Los Angeles Dodgers, Latin American teenagers and Cubans approaching their mid-20s were losers in baseball's new labor contract, which includes stiffer penalties for high-spending teams and a hard cap on signing bonuses for international amateurs. The Oakland Athletics also came up short, with the team's ability to receive revenue-sharing money to be trimmed in stages and eliminated in 2020.

After opting out of his contract with the New York Mets and walking away from $47 million guaranteed, Yoenis Cespedes will not change uniforms, agreeing to a four-year, $110 million contract to stay with the team Tuesday on a record deal that includes a full no-trade clause.

Yoenis Cespedes has agreed a four-year $110 million (103.3 million euros) deal which will see him remain at the New York Mets, reports said Tuesday, ending speculation about the Cuban slugger's future after he earlier opted for free agency. Rival clubs across Major League Baseball led by the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers had been put on alert after Cespedes walked away from $47 million guaranteed after using his opt-out clause to head to the open market. Cespedes had come close to leaving the Mets last year, but remained with the club after failing to garner significant offers.

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 07:44:36 PST

We’ve seen a lot of players from the Chicago Cubs taking their well-earned victory laps on TV lately, but they’re not the only baseball players who exist.

But that changed for one baseball player on Sunday night when Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals emerged from his offseason hibernation to present an award at the American Music Awards. Pumped to present #AMAs New Artist of the Year Award Un-leashed by @TMobile. ...

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 14:17:31 PST

Commissioner Rob Manfred says baseball wants to study high-profile positions within the sport to see if certain qualifications predict success, a step that ''has everything to do'' with minority hiring. Baseball had no Latino managers before Rick Renteria took over the Chicago White Sox last month. Dusty Baker of the Washington Nationals and Dave Roberts from the Los Angeles Dodgers are the only black skippers among the league's 30 teams.

MVP 2016: Sizing up the finalists (Big League Stew)

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:28:16 PST

Each league has a most valuable player, and that player is decided by a panel of 30 voters for each league. All of the voting happened before the playoffs, which is good for most of the finalists, and disappointing for Kris Bryant (who did pretty well in the 2016 playoffs). The race in the American League is wide open, despite the presence of Mike Trout, the best baseball player on planet Earth. Both Jose Altuve and Mookie Betts turned in stellar seasons full of personal bests, and their teams were in contention down the stretch.
