30 MLB Teams Needs/Notes And Financials For The Offseason

Perhaps no team is more top-heavy than the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. They need a Catcher/3B/OF/2B and have Erick Aybar, C.J. Wilson and Jered Weaver clearing off the books after next campaign. It is an important off year for them.

Perhaps no team is more top-heavy than the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. They need a Catcher/3B/OF/2B and have Erick Aybar, C.J. Wilson and Jered Weaver clearing off the books after next campaign. It is an important off year for them.  Will they spend a lot of money, or will they wait until next winter?

Team Needs notes and financials

Braves: need 4/5 SP depth Setup/Closer type and Catcher budget 15-30M -but will likely save huge splash signings for next years new stadium.

Marlins: maybe 1B Could trade Marcell Ozuna and sign an OF will likely acquire 2 SP one of them being a #2 starter the other lower end. needs lefty reliever. Budget 10-25M.

Mets: Could trade Matt Harvey or Jon Niese/Need MI (at least 1)/ and a big bat for Yoenis Cespedes replacement. Budget 20 -30M.

Phillies: Needs all over especially SP Needs all over offense except SS and 3B Bullpen can use beefing up 10-100M Budget don’t know what they are going for but should wait for next season to make some game changing moves new GM.  Unknown philosophy could sell Odubel Herrera high.

Nationals: 7th/8th inning man maybe SP (Would only be high end) Possible CF. Budget could be -10M to upwards of 30M.

Cubs: SP 3/CF/RF/CL. if needed but not urgent Quagmire at 2B High end SP a priority Should acquire shutdown closer. 40-80M budget.

The Braves need a lot of players but may not be that active until next year when they move to their new stadium. It could be another long year in Hotlanta.

Reds: May trade Todd Frazier. Need SP (inning eaters types most likely) but can’t afford to pay big. Will shop  Aroldis Chapman. Would need 3B if Frazier traded, Jay Bruce could also be shopped. Budget 15M to 20M. Will try to sell high on Brandon Phillips.

Brewers: CF SP Depth Don’t expect much. Budget 15-35M. Likely on lower side as owner said payroll likely to be cut back Could trade a MI.

Pirates: Setup man Possible RF Budget 5-15M Not expected to be big spenders could use high upside pitcher.

Cardinals: Middle Relief the Cardinal way. 5-15M Budget.

Diamondbacks: Very unpredictable OF possible Bullpen needs help a 2-4SP. Will be active with Foreign markets. Budget 15-40M.

Rockies: Likely to trade Jose Reyes Need SP (Higher end) Bullpen reinforcements Budgets 5-10M (If Reyes traded then that Money will be added)(Reyes Domestic Violence arrest could trigger different moves).

Dodgers: OF depth: #2 + 3 SP and Setup man 15-50M budget, and they need speed.  Already over Luxury Tax Threshold with Arbitration guys, so FA will all cost 50% more.

Padres: innings eater SP if Ian Kennedy doesn’t accept Qualifying Offer. Craig Kimbrel could be traded Slew of offensive needs CI MI maybe 1B. Budget -15M to 30M expect them to be very active.

Giants: LF depth/MI/1-2SP innings eater S, one reliever. Budget 20-40M.

Orioles: 3 SP’s OF/C/DH/1B and Setup man. Budget 15-40M.

Red Sox: CF (Would free them to trade Margot) 1-2 high end SP setup man and middle relief budget 25-50M.

Yankees: SS (if not satisfied with bat) 2B OF 1-2SP (Maybe.) RP Budget 5-25M.

Rays: CF/C (already traded for SS and DH.) Budget 0 -15M.

Blue Jays:  1-2SP and budget 10-40M.

White Sox: 3SP/3B/C/2B Setup man/ Budget 5-20M.

Indians: #3-#4SP/3B and Setup man. 5-20M budget.

Tigers: Closer/Setup man/ cheaper OF 1-3SP 4-5SP.  Core of team is controlled for at least 3 years. budget 30-65M.

Royals: OF/2-3SP Middle Relief budget 10-30M.

Twins: Won bidding for Park SS(would only sign high or low end with prospects looming) (Had interest in Jose Reyes) 1-2SP Setup man Budget 5-20M (Could be reduced with Park signing) Could trade Trevor Plouffe.

Astros: Close/ OF/3B(maybe) Budget 0-20M.

Angels: 3B/C/LF /2B Middle Reliever Lots of $ off the books next year over50M potentially -20 to 40M.

A’s:  A Starting Pitcher, and an OF. May trade Josh Reddick.

Mariners: a #2 and #4SP/CF/Setup man – 15-30M.  Not many players signed long term but a lot with guys that are already with Robinson Cano, Felix Hernandez, Corey Seager and Nelson Cruz.

Rangers: C/2SP/Closer and Setup man. 0-20M budget.

The Jays don't lose much off their roster from the entire playoffs, except for David Price. If they can sign 1 or 2 Starting Pitcher for depth and then orchestrate another deal near the 2016 deadline for another ace pitcher, this next year could see them in the World Series.
