MLB Hot Stove Round Up: More Montero Reaction (and Other News)

Have you had your fill of Montero/Pineda trade analysis? If not, here are a few more insights about the deal.

The rest of baseball didn't shut down to admire Brian Cashman's impressive Friday night, so, for those who are exhausted by the many reactions to the Montero/Pineda trade, there is more news from around the league after the jump.

The Yankees aren't the only team that has been busy of the late. Amid negotiating with Japanese right hander Yu Darvish, the Texas Rangers have also reportedly touched base with Prince Fielder.

Whether or not the Red Sox respond to the Yankees recent spate of moves remains to be seen, but in the meantime, the team still has to resolve the status of David Ortiz and Jason Varitek.

Indians' GM Chris Antonetti is confident his team can contend in the Central, but that hasn't stopped him from trying to add a bat. One thing the Indians will not consider, however, is a reunion with Manny Ramirez.

The Braves avoided arbitration with Martin Prado, who agreed to a one-year deal worth $4.75 million. However, speculation remains that Prado will eventually be moved in a trade.

The Oakland Athletics and Bartolo Colon are currently in negotiations, which, apparently, puts the Yankees on the cutting edge of Moneyball.

If Justin Morneau is able to recover from his long bout with post-concussion syndrome, it would give the Twins' lineup a boost on par with some of the offseason's big free agent additions. According to GM Terry Ryan, Morneau isn't yet 100%, but the team expects him to be ready by the start of the Spring Training.
