The aptly nicknamed Hot Stove League kicked off in San Diego at the Winter Meetings with Scott Boras inking consecutive record-breaking contracts for his aces Stephen Strasburg and Gerrit Cole. Since then, more trades and other signings have changed a few names on the backs of every team’s uniforms, but it’s the extended offseason that may make it hard to recollect which player is with what team for 2020.

The west will be won in the west and against nine other teams that have the same belief that…

In 2020, it’s little more than a sprint. Colorado opens the season with a three-game series against the Texas Rangers on July 24 to christen the newly constructed Globe Life Field in Arlington before a brief two-game set in Oakland. Coors Field hosts the San…
