Cody Bellinger could land with AL playoff team?

  Cody Bellinger could land with AL playoff team? Bellinger was the NL MVP in 2019 and helped the Dodgers win the World Series in 2020. But ever since then, Bellinger has been a total lemon.Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported Thursday that the Toronto Blue Jays are a team to watch for Bellinger if he is non-tendered by the Los Angeles Dodgers. Morosi adds that Toronto would like to add a left-handed bat to its outfield this offseason.

Former All-Star Asdrubal Cabrera hasn't played in the majors since 2021, but he's still making noise on the diamond, though maybe for the wrong reasons.

On Saturday, Carlos Castro hit his third home run of the night during a Venezuelan Baseball League between Caribes de Anzoátegui and Tiburones de La Guaira. After making contact with the pitch, Castro admired his long ball before casually flipping his bat halfway as he strolled down the first-base line.

Playing in the field, Cabrera didn't take kindly to Castro's celebration meeting him as he rounded first base with a sharp left hook.

Will Justin Verlander re-sign with Houston?

  Will Justin Verlander re-sign with Houston? With Verlander set to test the open market, will the Astros meet the demand for the 39-year-old, or will he be wearing another uniform come spring? This week, Verlander spoke to reporters about how he's approaching free agency, and while he didn't close the door on returning to Houston, it sounds like there's a possibility the team could be priced out of the bidding. "I'm going to be in a situation where the market will dictate this and we'll see what happens," Verlander said, per's Brian McTaggart. "Obviously, there are other people that are interested.

To no one's surprise, a brawl ensued as both benches cleared.

The 37-year-old didn't play in the majors in 2022. Cabrera reportedly had an offer from a team ahead of the season, which he declined, per Jon Heyman of the New York Post.

Cardinals non-tender RHP Alex Reyes

  Cardinals non-tender RHP Alex Reyes Reyes was once touted as one of the best prospects in all of baseball, regularly featuring on various publications’ top-100 lists, including a fourth-place ranking on Baseball America’s pre-2017 list of the best prospects in baseball. The foundation of that was some elite stuff, headlined by a triple-digit fastball and a lethal curveball. After blowing away minor league batters, he made his big league debut in 2016 and didn’t disappoint. The then-21-year-old tossed 46 innings of 1.57 ERA ball, giving up just one home run and striking out batters 27.5% of the time.

After Saturday's incident, there aren't likely to be many suitors for the veteran this winter.

Cabrera has 15 MLB seasons under his belt, playing for the Cleveland Indians, Washington Nationals, Tampa Bay Rays, New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Cincinnati Reds.

In his last season in the majors, Cabrera struggled, batting .077/.194/.077 with two RBI in 20 games for the Reds.

Over 1822 games, Cabrera has recorded 195 home runs and 869 RBI while slashing .266/.329/.423
