Cardinals Bolster Rotation With Sonny Gray

As we enter the Hot Stove season after the Thanksgiving weekend, we’re gearing up to cover all the notable transactions as free agency kicks off and trade rumors swirl. To kick things off, the Cardinals have made a significant move. According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, St. Louis has secured right-hander Sonny Gray on a three-year, $75 million contract. This move adds a strong arm to their pitching staff, joining the likes of Miles Mikolas, Kyle Gibson, Lance Lynn, and Steven Matz.

Sonny Gray has been a reliable player, showcasing his skills during his time with the Twins. Despite some injury setbacks, Gray maintained solid stats, making him a safe pick heading into the new season. With his pitching abilities, he is expected to perform as a top-40 starting pitcher if he can remain healthy.

Tigers Add Veteran Kenta Maeda To Young Staff

On Sunday, the Tigers sealed a deal with Kenta Maeda, signing him to a two-year, $24 million contract. This move is geared towards adding veteran experience to the team’s young pitching staff. Maeda’s performance towards the end of last season indicates that he could be a valuable addition to the Tigers’ roster.

Diamondbacks Acquire Slugging Suárez From Mariners

The Diamondbacks have addressed a major gap in their lineup by acquiring third baseman Eugenio Suárez from the Mariners. This move is expected to bring more power to the Diamondbacks’ offense, as Suárez has a consistent track record of hitting home runs. However, his batting average may not be as strong due to a high strikeout rate, so he will likely be a key player in producing home runs and RBI for the team.
