Twins | Three expected to see time at 1B

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 12:21:36 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Chris Colabello, DH Kendrys Morales and OF Chris Parmelee are expected to receive time at first base while 1B Joe Mauer (oblique) is on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how the playing time will be split, but all probably will get some time at first base. Morales is probably owned in most leagues, so owners in deeper mixed leagues can consider adding Colabello or Parmelee. Colabello is a better option at this point since he was playing well before he was called up to the team.

Twins | Unknown when Kendrys Morales will play

Mon, 09 Jun 2014 08:42:08 -0700

Minnesota Twins DH Kendrys Morales will work out with the team and take the field when he's ready. "It's a day-to-day thing, I'll be working out and talking to (manager Ron Gardenhire) and the coaching staff," Morales said. "When I'm ready, I'll be in there. We just want to do it the right way."

Fantasy Tip: Morales should be owned in all leagues at this point. If you're in a weekly league, it's probably safest to leave him on the bench this week until we have a better idea of when he might play his first game for the Twinkies.

Twins | Agree to terms with Kendrys Morales

Sat, 07 Jun 2014 12:05:03 -0700

The Minnesota Twins have reportedly agreed to terms with free-agent 1B/DH Kendrys Morales (Mariners).

Fantasy Tip: Morales, who hit 23 homers and drove in 77 runs last year, should be added in all fantasy formats immediately. This signing appears to be bad news for OF Jason Kubel, who has struggled mightily at the plate for most of the season, as well as C Josmil Pinto, who had been getting most of the playing time at designated hitter prior to the signing of Morales.

Rangers | Considering Kendrys Morales

Fri, 06 Jun 2014 15:20:50 -0700

The Texas Rangers are in the mix to sign free-agent 1B Kendrys Morales (Mariners) now that a draft pick is no longer attached to him, according to two baseball sources. 1B Mitch Moreland is currently hitting only .133 against left-handers on the year. Morales has been working out on his own as he awaits a team to sign him.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers have been in the mix all along, really. Morales should be expected to sign with a club very soon, if not by the end of the weekend. Grab him and stash him now before it's too late.

Yankees | Moving on from Kendrys Morales?

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 13:38:06 -0700

Free-agent 1B Kendrys Morales (Mariners) and his agent, Scott Boras, have declined the New York Yankees' request to wait a few days while they monitor the progress of OF Carlos Beltran (elbow) and 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist), and it looks as though Morales will find a new home within the next few days. The Milwaukee Brewers, Seattle Mariners and another team or two may have a better chance at signing him now. The Texas Rangers have also shown interest. Morales may prefer to sign a one-year deal so that he can be back on the free-agent market this winter.

Fantasy Tip: Teams won't have to surrender a draft pick to sign Morales as soon as the draft kicks off tonight, so there's a good chance he'll sign with a team shortly after that. If he's still available in your league, it's a good idea to stash him now.
