, Ariz. (AP) — has not scared Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado, who could be among the most prized players after this season.“I’m not afraid of it at all,” Arenado said. “It doesn’t have an effect on me. I think free agency is something you earn. You’ve been in the big leagues this long, you get there and you earn it. I don’t know how it is going to work out, I can’t speak on that. But you definitely earn it.”Arenado could be eligible for free agency after the World Series, part of a free-agent class projected to include Paul Goldschmidt, Josh Donaldson and Khris Davis.Arenado signed a $26 million, one-year contract to avoid arbitration, the largest one-year deal for an arbitration-eligible player in baseball history. No deadline has been set on talks with the Rockies for a long-term contract.“I think it always worries you, but at the same time I have bigger things to worry about,” Arenado said. “I’m trying to do my job at a high level and that’s it. Everything else can take care of itself.“It’s definitely a little worry دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, in a way, when you think about it for a long period of time. But I try not to think about that. I’m in a great situation right now. Just play baseball now. If it comes to that in the offseason, I’ll deal with it then.”Arenado called the current state of the free-agent market “sad.”While Manny Machado agreed this week to a $300 million, 10-year contract with San Diego, Bryce Harper has yet to sign and the overall market has been slow.“There are some really good baseball players out there, and it is crazy to think some of these teams don’t need them. They need them. There is no question that they do,” Arenado said. “They are just deciding not to, I guess.“It’s disappointing. I think it just shows that there are teams that are not trying to win. I just believe that the guys that are out there can really rebuild a team, get it jumpstarted, and help it win a championship.”Arenado, meanwhile دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, seems at home in Colorado, which took him in the second round of the 2009 amateur draft and has made the playoffs the last two seasons, a franchise first. Free agent Daniel Murphy was added and David Dahl is projected to take another step up after the losses of free agents Carlos Gonzalez, Gerardo Parra and Adam Ottavino.Arenado has led the National League in homers three times, RBIs twice and doubles once while averaging 31 homers and 103 RBIs in his six seasons. He has won six Gold Gloves.“We feel very comfortable with each other,” Arenado said. “We know what we are going to get out of each other. We’re very comfortable communicating with each other. It just feels right. It is a very comfortable setting.” ATLANTA (AP) From the perspective of manager Brian Snitker, the addition of right-hander Kevin Gausman means the Atlanta Braves added help in all the right places for their push to win the NL East.Snitker applauded four trades made by general manager Alex Anthopoulos.”I feel really good,” Snitker said. ”We talked about what you would like to have, and I think he hit all the boxes. Bullpen depth, starting pitcher, maybe a bat off the bench. I think they did a great job.”The Braves acquired Gausman and veteran reliever Darren O’Day from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for four prospects Tuesday. The Braves also added outfielder Adam Duvall دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, acquired from the Reds late Monday, and relievers Brad Brach and Jonny Venters in the last five days.Atlanta didn’t part with any of its top prospects in the process, either.The Orioles acquired Triple-A right-hander Evan Phillips, Class A infielder Jean Carlos Encarnacion and two Double-A prospects – catcher Brett Cumberland and left-hander Bruce Zimmerman. Baltimore also received international signing bonus slot money.”We’re always reluctant to move some of our higher ranked guys,” Anthopoulos said. ”… We like the guys we lost. There are certain guys that are more high-profile. We didn’t go into the trade deadline saying we refuse to move on our top prospects. Certain guys are harder to acquire than others. For the right deal for the right player, we’re open to it.”The Braves entered Tuesday’s trade deadline a half-game behind first-place Philadelphia and five games ahead of third-place Washington in the NL East. The Phillies have also made a push, adding catcher Wilson Ramos and left-hander Aaron Loup on Tuesday after picking up infielder Asdrubal Cabrera last Friday. The Nationals traded away reliever Brandon Kintzler but otherwise stood pat at the deadline.”We were just trying to make the team better,” Anthopoulos said. ”Obviously it’s going to be a tight race in the East. Philadelphia made some nice moves. The Nats, we know how talented they are. … It’s going to be tough. We want to win the division, as all the other teams do, but even the wild card is going to be challenging.”Duvall joined the team Tuesday and has been designated for a platoon role دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, with most of his starts coming against left-handers. He’ll play left field, with rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. moving to center and Ender Inciarte moving to the bench against left-handers.Duvall, hitting .205 with 15 home runs and 61 RBIs, also gives the team a powerful pinch-hitter.Duvall said the platoon role ”doesn’t really matter to me.””I’m excited to be here,” he said. ”However they use me, I’ll go in there and do my best and hopefully win some ballgames.”O’Day had season-ending surgery on his left hamstring July 12 and was acquired to be part of Atlanta’s 2019 bullpen.Gausman, 27, was 5-8 with a 4.43 ERA in 21 games started for Baltimore. He is under team control through 2020.”Really excited to go to a team that’s playing really well right now, playing meaningful games,” Gausman said, adding he was excited about his role after talking with Anthopoulos.”I think it’s a good fit دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
,” Gausman said. ”After talking to their GM, I think they really liked me and have some things that can help me.”This is the second deal between the teams in three days. Atlanta acquired Brach from Baltimore for an international signing slot Sunday.Gausman adds experience to a rotation that has lost rookie Mike Soroka and right-hander Brandon McCarthy to injuries.Anthopoulos said he didn’t feel he had to add a starting pitcher because he likes the depth provided by prospects, including left-hander Kolby Allard, promoted from Triple-A Gwinnett to make his debut Tuesday night against Miami.”We were just looking at the right value and the right deal,” Anthopoulos said.Allard is expected to be sent back to Gwinnett following Tuesday night’s game.—
