Phil Nevin stays as Manager of the Angels for one more year at least. Shohei Ohtani is the first player ever to qualify as both a hitter and as a pitcher (for the awards) in the same season. Here are some statistics about him.
Don Mattingly might even stay with the Marlins, but in a different capacity. He is apparently not fully retiring. Jose Urena is interested in re-signing with the Rockies and the feeling is mutual. Sam Haggerty of the Mariners is now on the injured list with a groin strain. Reds designated right hander Robert Duggar for assignment so they could activate catcher Aramis Garcia from the 60 day IL. The Yankees placed reliever Ron Marinaccio on the injured list.
The Rays selected Jimmy Yacabonis and designated Kevin Herget for assignment.
