I'm glad to see Stephen Piscotty land in Oakland, where he'll see much less competition for at-bats. He's a rebound candidate for 2018, with the main thing not to like that the A's love to platoon, and he does have a 53-point career wOBA split. Still, I think Piscotty could provide top-50 outfield value at maybe an OF60-65 price.

The Blue Jays, Royals, Rays, Giants and Athletics are among the teams that have CarGo on their radar.

You won't believe this: the Mariners have made a trade. The A's sent 1B/3B/DH Ryon Healy to the Mariners for reliever Emilio Pagan and 17-year-old minor league infielder Alexander Campos. Healy is a low-OBP slugger, the kind of player readily available in today's game, but the Mariners needed a first baseman and he provides a low-cost alternative there if the Mariners don't land somebody better in free agency. Pagan had a solid rookie season with a 3.22 ERA and impressive 56-8 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 50 innings. Healy would be one of the worst everyday first basemen in the league and given Jerry DiPoto's trade history he's not even guaranteed to last the offseason on the Mariners roster.
