Former A's catcher Bruce Maxwell was also sentenced to probation in July on a disorderly conduct charge, but an MLB executive said of him, “It’s the kneeling thing that might keep him from getting another job, not the arrest.”

The deal also includes the Tampa Bay Rays

Washington made moves and made plans, but got no resolution on Bryce Harper.

Do the Nationals have enough power on their roster for 2019?

Washington has lost a lot of power hitting since the start of last season.

No joke: The Nationals have many possible answers for what’s on second

A glut of second basemen on the free agent market gives Washington options.

The winter meetings are over. The Nationals’ work is not.

Washington made moves and made plans, but got no resolution on Bryce Harper.

  • Analysis

Few things, not even the franchise-worst 115 losses Baltimore absorbed in 2018, illustrate the enormity of Mike Elias’s challenge in rebuilding the organization as keenly as the case of Davis.

  • Analysis

Which starting pitchers might Washington target to replace Roark?

The former MLB star throws his hat in the ring to fill the White House chief of staff vacancy. Failing that, he'd accept an ambassadorship, or, apparently, "starfleet commander" in the Space Force.

Los Angeles GM Andrew Friedman has a lengthy track record of not overspending on free agents. Is it time for that to end?

The suger-agent made his pitch for more than an hour Wednesday, while Harper sits and waits for his megadeal.

“I find it ridiculous to say that he wouldn’t be very good this day and age," one hitting coach said.

Mike Elias, the Orioles’ new general manager, told the team's beat reporters that no decision had been made, no offer had been extended and no announcement was likely during this week’s winter meetings.

The biggest free agents likely aren’t signing right away, but there is still plenty to discuss in Las Vegas.

  • Analysis

The McCutchen signing will naturally lead to speculation that Philadelphia will pivot away from Harper and toward Manny Machado.

  • Analysis

Whatever the motivation to move Roark, Washington does not seem desperate to do it.

Philadelphia is poised to spend “stupid” money on a free agent this offseason. But the intrigue remains, which one?

  • Analysis

Baines's surprise election also opens the floodgates to cases of what-aboutism that will now endure for years.
