LAS VEGAS (AP) — An All-Star starter to the relief-reliant Rays Kenny Lofton Jersey , a Tanner-forwinter meetings, but not much impact.Not yet, anyway.Charlie Morton was the top name to switch teams Wednesday, joining Tampa Bay for a $30 million, two-year deal after going 15-3 with Houston last season. Reliever Jeurys Familia returned to the New York Mets after they traded him away and first baseman Justin Bour headed to the Los Angeles Angels.And in the majors’ first swap of players with the first name of Tanner, the Washington Nationals sent Tanner Roark to Cincinnati for Tanner Rainey in a trade of right-handers.Roark led the National League with 15 losses, but expected he would be part of a prime rotation that recently added All-Star Patrick Corbin to stars Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg.“I felt like we would have a pretty good staff over there in D.C. but they thought otherwise and I don’t know what their plans are,” Roark said on a conference call.Fans all over, meanwhile, waited to hear where the likes of free agents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado and trade targets Corey Kluber and J.T. Realmuto might go.The New York Yankees worked to re-sign lefty J.A. Happ but, as always, were on the lookout for bigger prizes.“We’re a fully operational Death Star http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey ,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said.Boras, meanwhile, said there are teams ready to move right now on Harper.“Bryce is open to a lot of different venues, so it’s really about what a lot of owners have said to him about their commitments and what they want to do long term,” the prominent agent said.The 26-year-old Harper, who lives in Las Vegas, had a career-high 100 RBIs while hitting 34 home runs and batting .249 last season for Washington.“So, we’re really at a point where you could be meetings away from a deal,” Boras said. “And then again, you could be in the situation where it’s just further meetings and conversation.”Or, as Boras put it: “When the nurse walks in with the thermometer the issue isn’t what (it reads) that day, it’s the health of the patient when they’re ready to leave the hospital.”The session ends Thursday after the Rule 5 draft for players left off 40-man rosters. While some big trades got made at past gatherings — Giancarlo Stanton http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , Chris Sale — more and more the winter meetings are becoming a place where deals get set up for later.Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski would like to see that changed.As in, maybe a change to encourage clubs to roll the dice.“When I first started out … when the winter meetings ended, there was a trade deadline. You couldn’t make a trade for a couple months. So everything had to be done when you left,” the longtime executive said.“You got to the point where almost everybody wanted to be signed by the holiday, by Christmas holiday. Everybody wanted a job, so people would sign. I don’t really know what’s happened, where it’s changed. It’s just doesn’t seem to be very important for people,” he said, later adding, “they need to change the rules or something.” Dylan Buell/Getty ImagesChicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russellwas placed on administrative leave on Friday, after ex-wife Melisa Reidy-Russell published a blog post accusing a former spouse of domestic violence Wednesday, Major League Baseball announced.Reidy-Russell made allegations of multiple instances of physical and emotional abuse from her then-husband onLifeWithMelIs.com:"The first time I was physically mistreated by my spouse Danny Salazar Jersey , I was in shock.I couldn't wrap my head around what just happened. 鈥?Why did he get so angry? What did I do for him to want to put his hands on me?Of course I forgave himassumed it would never happen again. I just thought he had let his emotions get the best of him, he loves me and he's sorry. I was deeply hurt that he could even be capable of this behavior towards me, I couldn't understand how the man I was so in love with, the FATHER of my child, the man I married just a few months ago could show such aggression towards me. ..."Emotional/verbal abuse started way before I even realized, eventually it started to be an everyday thing. Being blamed for just about anything that went wrong, name calling, intimidating me with personal force, manipulating me to think I was the problem, destroying my personal things, threatening me to 'send' meour son home to my parents as if I was privileged to be living in our home."She went on to write "Abusive behavior happened more often in arguments(more so when he was under the influence)the verbal/emotional abuse grew to new levels."A friendresponded to a commenton a since-deleted post on Reidy-Russell's Instagram in June 2017, saying "hateful is cheating on your wife http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , mentallyphysically abusing her. Melisa didn't want that out but I'll say it. He hit her."Russell denied the allegations at the time in a statement issued after Major League Baseball opened an investigation."Any allegation I have abused my wife is false and hurtful," Russellsaid in a statement. "For the well-being of my family, I'll have no further comment."Reidy-Russell's attorney toldUSA Today'sBob Nightengaleshe wouldn't speak to MLB investigators about the allegations."She gave it a lot of thought," Thomas Field said, "but Melisa isn't interested in legitimizing anything that doesn't come from her. Ultimately, MLB has one reason for wanting to talk to her, but she doesn't believe it would be of any benefit for her or her son."PerPhil Thompsonof theChicago Tribune, the marriage between Reidy-Russell and Russell was officially dissolved on Aug. 30.Russell wasn't suspended by MLB under its domestic violence policy when the allegations first surfaced.
