Yanks acquire QB Wilson in trade with Rangers

Russell Wilson, the Seahawks QB who made one-day appearances at spring training for the Texas Rangers in 2014 and 2015, has been traded to the Yankees.

The Texas Rangers signed RHP Seung Hwan Oh and it's hardly outrageous he ends up with significant saves. Or not. Oh was fantastic in 2016. Last year he was bad. Perhaps he can fix the issues with his slider. Oh needs to be watched in March because lefty Alex Claudio is hardly safe as closer. Frankly, Oh's signing could push RHP Keone Kela down the depth chart, which is a mistake but the point is this is wide open. No Ranger reliever should be drafted today among the top-30 relievers.

Chipper Jones said at Thursday's Hall of Fame news conference in New York that he doesn't know why there are so few third-basemen in the Hall, but he admires and respects Adrian Beltre and looks forward to his enshrinement. Jones said hot corner practitioners are known as hockey goalies, who just try to knock things down.

Chipper, Vlad among 4 elected to Cooperstown

Yu Darvish has at least one five-year offer on the table, according to a source, but he has yet to receive an offer enticing enough to take the plunge. The Cubs, Twins, Rangers, Dodgers and Brewers all continue to monitor Darvish's market. Most baseball observers think he'll be the first upper-level free agent starter to sign, with Jake Arrieta, Lance Lynn and Alex Cobb next in line. With pitchers and catchers set to report to spring camps in three weeks, time is growing short for everyone.
