MLB free agency tracker 2022: Live updates on news, rumors, signings and trades after lockout ends – Sporting News

MLB and the MLBPA found the keys to a deal, and the lockout is over.
On March 10, the two sides reportedly agreed to a new CBA, thus ending the months-long owner implemented lockout and reopening the business of baseball, fast-tracking spring training and, ultimately, the start of the 2022 season.
Some of baseball’s best, including Freddie Freeman, Carlos Correa and Kris Bryant, have found new homes since then. Keep checking back here for additional moves as Opening Day approaches.
Here’s the latest on MLB free agency, rumors, deals and more:
MORE: What to know about 2022 MLB schedule after lockout ends
The new CBA was ratified on March 10 just after 6 p.m. ET and the lockout officially ended at 7 p.m. ET, signaling the start of free agency.
SN will be tracking all the latest deals, rumors and more following the return of the business of baseball below. (All times Eastern.)
7:05 a.m. — The Reds added a starting outfielder Wednesday night, agreeing to a one-year, $7.5 million contract with free agent Tommy Pham, reports Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer. The deal, which is pending a physical, also includes a mutual option for 2023, Nightengale reports. 
2 p.m. — There was quite a bit of buzz last week about Oakland making starting pitchers available via trade, and it seems the market might be picking up again. Ken Rosenthal reports the A’s are focused on moving lefty Sean Manaea and “waiting to decide how to proceed” with right-hander Frankie Montas. Stay tuned. 
10:50 a.m. — Veteran reliever Sergio Romo is set for his 15th MLB season, as he has agreed to a one-year deal with the Mariners. According to Joel Sherman, Romo, who turned 39 earlier this month, will make $2 million this year. 
10:30 a.m.: Sunday is starting off with some major news. Former Rockies shortstop Trevor Story is signing with the Red Sox for $140 million over six years, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan. The deal includes an opt-out after four years.
Infielder Trevor Story and the Boston Red Sox are in agreement on a six-year, $140 million contract, sources confirm to ESPN. After looking at multiple structures with multiple teams, Story gets big money from the Red Sox — and an opt-out after four. Another big bat for Boston.
The deal for Story is the exact same years and dollar figure as the deal signed by Javier Baez to join the Tigers, and it is the fifth-most lucrative contract handed out this offseason. Story figures to play second base for the Red Sox with Xander Bogaerts entrenched at shortstop. He gives Boston a backup plan if Bogaerts decides to opt out after the 2022 season.
7:50 p.m.: Jorge Soler is staying in the NL East. The outfielder/DH is joining the Marlins on a three-year, $36 million contract, according to multiple reports.
Outfielder Jorge Soler and the Miami Marlins are in agreement on a three-year, $36 million contract, sources familiar with the deal tell ESPN. The Marlins have been looking for a big bat, and they get it. @Feinsand had the agreement first.
Soler, a 30-year-old native of Cuba, played a pivotal role in the Braves’ drive to a World Series championship in 2021. He was voted Series MVP after hitting three home runs and driving in six in Atlanta’s six-game triumph over Houston.  
4:45 a.m.: A stunner overnight: Carlos Correa and the Twins agreed to a three-year contract worth a reported $105.3 million.
MLB source: Free agent shortstop Carlos Correa has reached an agreement with the Minnesota Twins (@Twins) on a three-year deal worth $105.3 million with opt outs after the first two years. Highest average annual value for an MLB infielder.

12:05 a.m.: Another Friday night stunner: The Phillies agree with free-agent outfielder Nick Castellanos on a five-year, $100 million contract. The $20 million-per-year deal puts the Phils over the luxury tax threshold, according to multiple reports. MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reports Bryce Harper played a key role in getting Castellanos to Philadelphia.  
Bryce Harper was a big factor in Phillies recruitment and signing of Castellanos. Phillies president Dave Dombrowski had Castellanos in Detroit and has now remade their lineup.
10:10 p.m.: The Braves announced the signing of reliever Kenley Jansen to a one-year, $16 million contract.
#Braves Sign Kenley Jansen: pic.twitter.com/3Dp2oXjdS3
Jansen, 34, had spent his entire career with the Dodgers organization prior to joining the reigning world champions. Atlanta general manager Alex Anthopoulos told reporters that Jansen will take over for Will Smith as the team’s closer.
The move came just hours after the Dodgers introduced their new first baseman, Freddie Freeman, who signed a six-year, $162 million contract with LA after Atlanta chose to move on from him.     
9:52 p.m.: The Tigers have agreed on a one-year, $5.5 million contract with free-agent right-hander Michael Pineda, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reported. The contract also includes up to $2.5 million in incentives. Pineda, 33, spent the previous three seasons with the Twins. Last year, he posted a 3.62 ERA in 109 1/3 innings for Minnesota. He will give Detroit another veteran for the rotation, joining opening day starter Eduardo Rodriguez.  
12:38 p.m.: Are the A’s moving Frankie Montas and Sean Manaea?
The A’s are receiving a ton of interest in Montas and Manaea. Interested teams had hoped there’d be a deal by now but there’s just a lot to consider. Both have understandably high price tags, esp Montas, not a free agent until after next year. NYY MInn CWS KC STL many more in.
12:26 p.m.: Contract details for Kris Bryant. 
Kris Bryant contract breakdown with the Colorado #Rockies:
Signing bonus: $7 million
2022: $17 million
2023: $27 million
2024: $27 million
2025: $26 million
2026: $26 million
2027: $26 million
2028: $26 million
12:05 p.m.: The Diego Padres have acquired first baseman/designated hitter Luke Voit from the Yankees in exchange for right-handed pitcher Justin Lange.
Luke Voit is “relieved” and “excited” to get a fresh start pic.twitter.com/uD6Us4NzlR
Voit did not have a role with the #Yankees once Rizzo returned. The move will save them about $5M (Voit is arbitration eligible).
4:40 p.m.: Another bullpen move for the Angels, who are adding right-hander Ryan Tepera on a two-year deal worth $14 million, per Jon Heyman. Tepera, 34, struck out 71 in 61 1/3 innings for the Cubs and White Sox last season.
1:20 p.m.: The Angels are adding to their bullpen, with Archie Bradley agreeing to a one-year deal worth $3.75 million, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal
12:25 p.m.: Infielder Jonathan Villar is headed to the Cubs, pending a physical, according to FanSided’s Robert Murray. UPDATE: Jon Heyman reports Villar’s deal is worth $6 million.
12:15 p.m.: Veteran outfielder Corey Dickerson is headed to the Cardinals on a one-year deal worth $5 million with the potential to add more through bonuses, MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports
8:30 a.m.: Though Carlos Correa remains the biggest name still available, Trevor Story isn’t far behind. He has been connected to the Cardinals, Twins and Astros, and Jon Heyman reports the Red Sox are now in the mix as well — though they would play Story at second base with Xander Bogaerts entrenched at shortstop. 
2:50 a.m.: After making a big splash with the Carlos Rodon signing, the Giants made another rotation addition with former Tigers starter Matthew Boyd, who Jon Heyman said is getting a one-year deal for $5.2 million plus up to $2.3 million in incentives. Boyd had surgery in September and should be ready for his season debut sometime in June. 
12:30 a.m.: Freddie Freeman is returning to his native Southern California. The free-agent first baseman agreed to six-year, $162 million contract with the Dodgers late Wednesday/early Thursday, ESPN’s Jeff Passan and Kiley McDaniel reported.
BREAKING: Freddie Freeman has agreed to terms with the Dodgers on a six-year, $162 million deal according to @JeffPassan and me.
Freeman, 32, is going home after the Braves moved on from him earlier in the week. Atlanta acquired first baseman Matt Olson from the A’s on Tuesday and then signed him to an eight-year, $168 million contract. Freeman will be making $27 million per season with the Dodgers.
The immediate talk after the Freeman deal was how stacked LA’s lineup is now: Freeman, Max Muncy (when healthy), Trea Turner and Justin Turner in the infield; A.J. Pollock, Cody Bellinger and Mookie Betts in the outfield; Will Smith catching; and Chris Taylor as a superutility player. The Dodgers can rotate a few of these players in the DH spot.       
9:05 p.m.: Kris Bryant is the next big-name hitter to find a team. He and the Rockies have agreed on a seven-year, $182 million contract, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reported. The pact also contains a no-trade clause. Baseball media and fans were scratching their heads over this deal because of the money and the fact Colorado traded franchise-icon third baseman Nolan Arenado and $51 million to the Cardinals in February 2021. Now the Rockies are replacing Arenado after a year with Bryant, who might split time between third and the outfield, as he did previously with the Cubs and the Giants.
Joc Pederson is back in the NL West, joining a team that used to be a bitter rival but is also his hometown team. The outfielder joins the Giants on a one-year contract worth a reported $6 million. Pederson, who hails from Palo Alto, began his career with the Dodgers. He can expect to play a platoon role with matchup-mad San Francisco.
Rays outfielder Austin Meadows is a hot topic in trade talks, The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reported. Meadows, 26, drove in 106 runs with a .772 OPS (117 OPS+) for Tampa Bay in 2021, but he’s arbitration-eligible for the first time, which means he’s due a large raise, and the Rays have depth in the outfield: Randy Arozarena, Kevin Kiermaier, Manuel Margot, Brett Phillips, Vidal Brujan and Josh Lowe are all on the 40-man roster.  
The Reds’ roster teardown may not include rotation leaders Luis Castillo and Tyler Mahle. “I don’t see us moving any of those two players,” general manager Nick Krall told reporters, per Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. Krall has made three trades since the end of the lockout, moving Sonny Gray, Eugenio Suarez, Jesse Winker and Amir Garrett. The biggest name coming back is Mike Minor, acquired in the Garrett trade.
3:50 p.m.: Nearly 20 years after the Royals selected him with the sixth overall pick of the 2002 MLB Draft, Zack Greinke is rejoining his original organization. The 38-year-old right-hander has agreed to a deal with Kansas City, Ken Rosenthal reported. Joel Sherman reported Greinke will make at least $13 million with $2 million more available based on how many innings he pitches. 
Speaking of veteran right-handers, reliever David Robertson — who turns 37 next month — has a one-year deal with the Cubs, the team announced. He’ll get $3.5 million with the possibility of up to $1.5 million more in incentives, per Mark Feinsand
3:10 p.m.: No word yet on where Freddie Freeman will play this season, but the longtime Atlanta first baseman said his farewell to Braves fans via an Instagram post that concluded:
“Although our time has come to an end, I look forward to seeing and playing in front of you all again. When that time comes, I hope you remember all the wonderful memories we made together. I love you Braves Country! Champions Forever!”
A post shared by Freddie Freeman (@freddiefreeman)
2:10 p.m.: The Royals and Reds have made a trade that seems like a table-setter for another move. Kansas City is sending veteran lefty starter Mike Minor and cash to Cincinnati for somewhat younger lefty reliever Amir Garrett. Ken Rosenthal provides some context, noting that the Royals cleared $8.5 million in payroll with the move and adding that they are among the teams in the mix to trade for A’s starter Frankie Montas
12:05 p.m.: Eddie Rosario played in only 33 regular-season games for the Braves last year after coming over from Cleveland, but he made a huge impact in the postseason and is back for more. The Braves announced that the 2021 NLCS MVP has re-signed on a two-year deal worth $9 million per season that also includes a club option at the same rate for 2024. 
11:20 a.m.: Toronto might not be done making moves. Ken Rosenthal reports the Jays have talked to the Guardians about acquiring All-Star infielder Jose Ramirez, who they would play at second base. After giving up four young players to land Matt Chapman from Oakland, though, how hard are the Jays willing to push to win now? 
11:00 a.m.: The Tigers have made a pair of moves to shore up their pitching staff. Evan Petzold first reported the team had reached an agreement with lefty reliever Andrew Chafin, and Ken Rosenthal adds that it is a two-year deal worth about $13 million. Petzold reported earlier in the day that starter Wily Peralta had agreed to a minor-league deal with Detroit that will pay him at least $2.5 million if he makes the major league roster. 
10:25 a.m.: Seiya Suzuki‘s deal with the Cubs is actually for $85 million over five years, reports Ken Rosenthal, who adds that Suzuki also has a full no-trade clause. The Cubs also will have to pay a posting fee that is not included in that total. 
9:58 a.m.: The Blue Jays are sending SS Kevin Smith, RHP Gunnar Hoglund, LHP Zach Logue and LHP Kirby Snead to the A’s in their deal for Matt Chapman, Shi Davidi reports
9:53 a.m.: Kyle Schwarber‘s deal with the Phillies is for four years with an average annual value just under $20 million per year, according to Jayson Stark
9:20 a.m.: The Phillies are “making progress” on a deal with free-agent slugger Kyle Schwarber, reports Ken Rosenthal. Schwarber’s market undoubtedly expanded with the move to a universal DH in the new collective bargaining agreement, making it easier for an NL team to justify adding the defensively deficient 29-year-old. UPDATE: Jim Salisbury says the deal is done, pending “all the usual stuff” aka a physical. 
8:45 a.m.: The Blue Jays are finalizing a trade that would bring All-Star third baseman Matt Chapman from Oakland to Toronto, Jon Morosi confirms. Former major leaguer Carlos Baerga first reported on Instagram that a deal was in place. Morosi says the Jays are not expected to be giving up any players from their projected Opening Day roster to the A’s, who are now in full sell-off mode as they jettison the top defensive third baseman in the game for prospects. 
8:35 a.m.: After meeting with Cubs owner Tom Ricketts and the Chicago front office, Hiroshima star Seiya Suzuki is reportedly signing with the Cubs for 5 years $70 million, per David Kaplan.
11:03 p.m.: Anthony Rizzo is reportedly returning to the Yankees, per ESPN’s Jesse Rogers. The contract is reportedly 2 years for $32 million with an opt out after year one.
Breaking news: Anthony Rizzo in agreement on a contract with the Yankees, pending a physical.
1:45 p.m.: There hasn’t been much buzz around the top free agent available, Carlos Correa, and that may be because he is leaning toward staying in Houston. Ken Rosenthal reported the Astros plan to make a new offer to the superstar shortstop and “players can’t stop talking about” his potential return at Astros camp.
1:05 p.m.: The Braves put an exclamation point on their changing of the guard at first base, announcing they have signed new acquisition Matt Olson to an eight-year contract worth $168 million that runs through the 2029 season, with a club option for 2030. The Atlanta native will make $15 million this season, $21 million in 2023, and $22 million each year from 2024-29. His 2030 option is worth $20 million. Freddie Freeman may be gone, but Olson obviously is in Atlanta to stay.

12:35 p.m.: Veteran reliever Chris Martin won a World Series ring with Atlanta last season, but he’ll have a new home in 2022. Jon Morosi reports Martin has agreed to a one-year contract with the Cubs that will pay him at least $2.5 million with the opportunity to add $750,000 more in bonuses.  
10:30 a.m.: Free agent Nick Castellanos wanted to sign with his hometown Marlins — and former team president Derek Jeter wanted to sign him — but Miami is not currently “aggressively pursuing” the outfielder, according to Barry Jackson.
9:20 a.m.: The Pirates announced they have signed first baseman/designated hitter Daniel Vogelbach and reliever Heath Hembree to one-year deals. Jon Heyman reports Vogelbach will make $1 million and the deal includes an option for 2023 at $1.5 million, with an additional $400,000 possible via incentives. 
8:35 a.m.: The Freddie Freeman market appears wide open with a return to the Braves now off the table thanks to their trade for Matt Olson. According to Jon Heyman, the Red Sox are now involved along with previously reported suitors: the Dodgers, Yankees, Rays and Blue Jays. 
4:46 p.m.: The Mariners trade for Jesse Winker, who made his first All-Star Game last season. 
BREAKING: The Seattle Mariners are finalizing a trade to acquire All-Star outfielder Jesse Winker from the Cincinnati Reds, sources familiar with the deal tell ESPN.
Winker hit .305/.394/.556 last season with a career-high 24 home runs. 
The Mariners also acquired Eugenio Suarez from Reds, purging $35M.
The Reds’ big tank continues.

Trade Sonny Gray to Twins for two prospects, save $10M

4:35 p.m.: Coveted Japanese free-agent outfielder Seiya Suzuki says he has not yet picked an MLB team, contrary to reports that he was set to join the Padres. While San Diego remains perhaps the favorite to land the 27-year-old, Jon Heyman reports the Dodgers, Giants, Red Sox, Mariners, Cubs and others are still involved.
Elsewhere in the NL West, the Rockies are making a push for free agent Kris Bryant, according to Nick Groke and Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.  
2:12 p.m.: The Braves have their first baseman for 2022, but it isn’t Freddie Freeman. The reigning World Series champions are set to acquire Matt Olson from Oakland, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan. That would seem to leave the Dodgers as the favorite to sign Freeman, with the Yankees still a possibility as well.
Olson, an Atlanta native who turns 28 next month, will have the tough task of replacing Freeman. He hit 39 home runs and posted a .911 OPS last season as he made the All-Star Game for the first time in his fourth full MLB season. 
The A’s will get outfielder Cristian Pache, catcher Shea Langeliers, and pitchers Ryan Cusick and Joey Este in return for Olson, Passan reported
1:15 p.m.: The Twins continue to be among the most active teams post-lockout, and they apparently are looking to make another rotation addition a day after acquiring Sonny Gray from Cincinnati. Jon Morosi reports the Twins and Athletics are engaged in discussions about a starting pitcher — likely Sean Manaea or Frankie Montas — moving to Minnesota. 
10:20 a.m.: Will Monday be the day Freddie Freeman makes a decision? Jon Heyman reports the Yankees are “pessimistic” about their chances to land the free-agent slugger, which would seem to leave a return to the Braves or a return home to the Dodgers as his top choices. As for the Yankees, it appears Anthony Rizzo might make the most sense among the remaining first basemen with the A’s apparently asking a bit much for Matt Olson. 
8:45 a.m.: Reporters are back in MLB clubhouses starting today, and that access already has paid dividends. Veteran reliever Sean Doolittle has a locker in the Nationals’ clubhouse in West Palm Beach, Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post noted. The lefty has agreed to a major-league deal with the Nats pending a physical. 
4:05 a.m.: Where to begin? With a late-night blockbuster between the Yankees and Twins. New York acquired third baseman Josh Donaldson, infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa and catcher Ben Rortvedt from Minnesota for catcher Gary Sanchez and third baseman Gio Urshela. The Yankees reportedly will take on all of Donaldson’s contract (two years, $50 million). Kiner-Falefa was a Twin for one day after being acquired in a trade with the Rangers. He’s now the Yankees’ new shortstop. What will Minnesota do for a shortstop now? A source told Dan Hayes of The Athletic that the team has been in contact with free agent Trevor Story.
Nelson Cruz is moving to the National League to be the Nationals’ DH in 2022. Multiple reports said that the sides agreed on a one-year contract with a mutual option for 2023. MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reported that the total guarantee is $15 million — a $12 million salary in 2022 and a $3 million buyout of a $16 million option for ’23.
There’s an opening for a Carlos Correa-Astros reunion. Per Mark Berman of Houston television station KRIV, team owner Jim Crane said the team has “reached out” to Correa’s representatives and “are in discussions.” 
Right-hander Ian Kennedy is returning to the Diamondbacks. He has agreed to a one-year contract worth $4.75 million and can make an additional $2.35 million in incentives, MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reported. Kennedy pitched for Arizona from 2010-13; he went 21-4 with a 2.88 ERA in 2011. He split the 2021 season between Texas and Philadelphia, closing for both teams. 
Carlos Martinez is on his way to San Francisco. The right-hander announced the move on Instagram. Martinez, 30, spent the first nine years of his MLB career with the Cardinals, but the past two were marked by injuries and ineffectiveness. 
The Padres are “aggressively shopping” first baseman Eric Hosmer and outfielder Wil Myers, MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reported. Both players have bloated contracts; Hosmer has four years and $59 million remaining on his deal, while Myers has one year and $20 million (plus a club option for 2023) left on his, according to Cot’s Contracts. Moving Myers would help clear the way for Japanese free agent Seiya Suzuki. The outfielder worked out for Padres executives at Petco Park during the weekend and met with Padres ace Yu Darvish and his family, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reported
2:29 p.m.: The NL East is making some moves. The Phillies are reportedly looking at bringing back outfielder Odubel Herrera, according to Audacy’s Jon Heyman. Heyman also reported that the Nationals have brought back Anibal Sanchez, while the New York Post’s Joel Sherman reported that the Mets have signed reliever Adam Ottavino.
1:41 p.m.: FanSided’s Robert Murary reported that longtime Phillie — and, more recently, Padre — starting pitcher Vince Velasquez has signed with the White Sox.
1:30 p.m.: The Reds announced that they had traded starting pitcher Sonny Gray to the Twins along with Francis Peguero in exchange for top prospect Chase Petty. After a down year in 2018 with the Yankees, Gray, 32, had a resurgence with the Reds, pitching to a 3.49 ERA across 68 starts in three seasons with 432 strikeouts. Petty, 18, was drafted 26th overall in 2021, and ranked as the No. 7 prospect in the Twins’ system, according to MLB Pipeline. Peguero, 24, had a 4.96 ERA in 28 relief appearances in Class High-A Daytona in 2021.
1:10 p.m.: Several utility bats are on the move in the free agency market. Former Oriole Hanser Alberto is headed to the Dodgers, according to FanSided’s Robert Murray, while El Extrabase is reporting that Ehire Adrianza is moving from the Braves to the Nationals.
12:25 p.m.: The early portion of Sunday’s free agency news featured a wave of relief pitching signings. The Red Sox inked left-handers Matt Strahm and Jake Diekman to deals, according to FanSided’s Robert Murray and MassLive’s Chris Cotillo. Audacy’s Jon Heyman reported that swingman Jesse Chavez will be signing with the Cubs, marking the second time he has pitched with the team.
11:47 p.m.: Rounding up bits and pieces from Saturday: Nelson Cruz is receiving a lot of attention thanks to the new universal DH. ESPN’s Enrique Rojas reports “at least eight” teams are interested, including the Dodgers, Brewers and Padres. . . . Reds GM Nick Krall told reporters he has not “been engaged” with Nick Castellanos’ representatives, a further sign the outfielder is leaving Cincinnati. . . . The Twins are among the teams interested in free-agent right-hander Johnny Cueto, Darren Wolfson of Minneapolis TV station KSTP reported. . . . The Angels and catcher Kurt Suzuki have agreed on a one-year, $1.75 million contract, Robert Murray of FanSided reported. . . . The Nationals and free-agent reliever Steve Cishek agreed on a one-year contract worth a reported $1.75 million guaranteed and up to $500,000 in incentives. 
11:27 p.m.: A’s third baseman Matt Chapman is one of the top trade targets heading into the season. The Phillies are one of the teams with interest in acquiring him. But Philadelphia is balking at the price tag, reports Alex Coffey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, a former A’s beat writer.
Per source, A’s won’t agree to trade Matt Chapman to the Phillies unless returning package includes someone at the top of the Phillies farm system (Painter, Abel, Stott, etc). Source says that thus far, Phillies have been reluctant to deal those guys.
8:49 p.m.: Veteran reliever Alex Colome is headed to the Rockies, reports ESPN’s Enrique Rojas.
Source: Dominican reliever Alex Colomé has a one-year agreement with the #Rockies, pending physical

8:46 p.m.: Jeurys Familia is staying in the NL East. The former Mets reliever has a deal with the Phillies. Mike Puma of the New York Post has the numbers:
Familia is getting $6 million for one year from the Phillies. Deal can be worth as much $7 million.
8:39 p.m.: The Mets upgraded their rotation with right-hander Chris Bassitt, acquired from the A’s for pitching prospects J.T. Ginn and Adam Oller. Bassitt, 33, was one of Oakland’s top starters last season (3.15 ERA/3.34 FIP, 9.1 K/9), and he showed his grit by returning from a brutal mid-August facial injury to pitch twice in September. New York’s starting five is now Jacob deGrom, Max Scherzer, Bassitt, Taijuan Walker and Carlos Carrasco.       
8:33 p.m.: The Rangers traded Gold Glove infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa and minor league pitcher Ronny Henriquez to the Twins for slugging catcher Mitch Garver. Kiner-Falefa will likely slot in at shortstop for Minnesota, which can now keep Jorge Polanco at second base. Garver will start the season as Texas’ No. 1 receiver ahead of Jose Trevino and Jonah Heim.
8:20 p.m.: The Astros add to their infield depth with former Tigers utilityman Niko Goodrum. Houston signed him to a one-year contract. Goodrum, 30, rejected an outright assignment to the minors by Detroit in November and became a free agent. He has played everywhere but pitcher and catcher in his MLB career.
Niko Goodrum on agreeing to a one-year deal with the Astros, pending physical: “One of the big things is winning,” he said on what drew him to Houston. “I’ve been playing against them for four years and just see the amazing things going on.”
8:17 p.m.: Veteran catcher Luke Maile lands with the Guardians on a one-year, $900,000 contract. Maile, 31, previously played for the Rays, Blue Jays and Brewers. Cleveland lists Austin Hedges as its No. 1 catcher.
This is an MLB deal for Maile https://t.co/CAVqKUNefA
8:06 p.m.: The Orioles finally have a catcher for the 40-man roster. Robinson Chirinos has agreed to a one-year contract. He is expected to back up and mentor top prospect Adley Rutschman. 
Robinson Chirinos has a deal with Orioles 900K plus 75K incentives. 100K if traded. @MarlyRiveraESPN on it

8 p.m.: The White Sox are bringing in veteran utilityman Josh Harrison on a one-year, $5 million contract that includes a club option for 2023. Harrison, 34, played for the Nationals and A’s last season.
One year, $5.5M, including $1.5M buyout on club option for 2023. https://t.co/C2mc3jF0F1
7:50 p.m.: The White Sox’s bullpen is even deeper after the addition of right-hander Joe Kelly, who reportedly has agreed to a two-year contract with a club option for 2024. The deal reportedly guarantees Kelly $17 million.
High-powered reliever Joe Kelly has agreed to a 2-year contract with the Chicago #WhiteSox. The deal will be final when he completes a physical.

Kelly gives Chicago another flamethrowing late-inning option. He joins Liam Hendriks, Craig Kimbrel, Kendall Graveman, Aaron Bummer, Garrett Crochet and, unless he joins the rotation, Michael Kopech. 
7:47 p.m.: Another shortstop is off the board: Jose Iglesias goes to the Rockies on a one-year deal worth a reported $5 million. The defense-first Iglesias, 32, will take Trevor Story’s spot on the infield. Iglesias played for the Angels and Red Sox in 2021.
The deal with Jose Iglesias and the Rockies is worth $5 million ✍🏽@hgomez27 @JeffPassan @BNightengale @jonmorosi @Feinsand @JonHeyman
7:40 p.m.: The Blue Jays add to their rotation with left-hander Yusei Kikuchi. The deal reportedly is for three years and $36 million.
Kikuchi turned down a $13M player option in Seattle in what looked like a gamble at the time https://t.co/iNkZ633KHQ
Kikuchi, 30, spent the past three years with the Mariners after signing as a free agent from Japan on New Year’s Day in 2019. Last season, he pitched to a 4.41 ERA/4.61 FIP in 157 innings. Seattle skipped his final turn in the rotation in late September because of ineffectiveness.
8:45 p.m.: Freddie Freeman Watch is on. The slugging first baseman could make a decision by Saturday after receiving a “strong” offer from the Dodgers, Jon Morosi reports. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Sources: Freddie Freeman negotiations expected to reach a conclusion in next 24 hours and possibly by the end of tonight. #Dodgers have made a strong offer, and it is unclear if the #Braves will match it. @MLBNetwork @MLB
6:26 p.m.: The Cubs have found a new shortstop, but it’s not one that people were expecting. Chicago has agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract (plus incentives) with Andrelton Simmons, MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reported. The smooth-fielding Simmons, 32, played in 131 games for the Twins last season.
Andrelton Simmons to Cubs. $4M plus incentives.
There were rumors earlier that top-of-the-line free agent Carlos Correa was in play for the Cubs; interestingly, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that Chicago could still try to sign him..
A one-year agreement with Andrelton Simmons – $4M, plus incentives, per @JonHeyman – would not preclude the Cubs from pursuing Carlos Correa, if they choose to move in that direction.
6:12 p.m.: Clayton Kershaw is back for another season with Dodgers, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported. Sources later told ESPN’s Jeff Passan that the one-year contract is worth $17 million, with another $5 million in incentives. Kershaw, who will turn 34 on March 19, had a 3.55 ERA and 144 strikeouts over 121 2/3 innings for LA in 2021 but also missed time with elbow inflammation and forearm discomfort. 
Free-agent left-hander Clayton Kershaw is in agreement with the Dodgers on a one-year deal, pending a physical, sources tell @TheAthletic.
Kershaw missed the postseason in 2021 with an elbow issue. He told @ByMcCullough today that he is healthy, but slightly behind where he normally is at this time of year. https://t.co/y7cKPrYsv7
4:06 p.m.: Carlos Rodon gets paid: The Giants and the starter agree to a two-year, $44 million pact, according to Jeff Passan. Passan reports that the deal also includes an opt-out after the first year.
Left-handed starter Carlos Rodón and the San Francisco Giants are in agreement on a two-year, $44 million contract that includes an opt-out after the first season, sources familiar with the deal tell ESPN.
4:05 p.m.: If you think it’d be weird to see Clayton Kershaw in a uniform other than a Dodgers’ uniform, then you’re not alone. According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, “industry speculation” dictates that Kershaw will go back to Chavez Ravine for another season.
There is heavy industry expectation that Clayton Kershaw will return to the Dodgers for the 2022 season.
3:58 p.m.: The Red Sox could bring back starter Colin McHugh. McHugh signed to pitch for Boston in 2020, but opted out due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Collin McHugh has a robust market, as expected, and the Red Sox are among the teams interested, according to an industry source. He will have options.

McHugh signed with BOS in 2020 then opted out of the season, largely due to injury concerns. He was great in ‘21 for TB.
3:45 p.m.: Freddie Freeman: Los Angeles Dodger? Dave Roberts says that the possibility exists, and that signing Freeman is “certainly in the conversation” for LA.
Dave Roberts: “I would love to see Freddie Freeman in a Dodger uniform. …Who wouldn’t?”

Roberts said Freeman is “certainly in the conversation for us.”
3:37 p.m.: Albert Pujols, one more season? According to Mark Feinsand, there are several teams interested in the slugger, and with the addition of the DH in the NL, he may have a market if he chooses to continue playing. Three teams rumored to be involved: The Mariners, Cardinals and Rockies.
Per sources, three teams have expressed interest in Albert Pujols. The addition of the DH to the National League has seemingly widened the market for the future Hall of Famer.
2:35 p.m.: Oh, we’re cooking now: Martin Pérez is on his way to Texas, per the Athletic’s Robert Murray. He gets $4 million on a one-year deal.
Free-agent pitcher Martin Perez in agreement with the Texas Rangers, pending physical, according to sources familiar with the situation.
11:55 a.m.: A signing: Reliever Drew VerHagen has signed with the Cardinals on a two-year deal, per Mark Feinsand. VerHagen makes his return to the majors after spending the last two seasons in NPB. The team makes the signing official:
RHP Drew VerHagen has agreed to a two-year, $5.5M deal with the Cardinals, per source. VerHagen pitched for the Tigers from 2014-19 and played in the NPB the last two years. He will earn $2.5M in 2022 and $3M in 2023, with up to $1M in performance bonuses each season.
We have agreed to terms with free-agent RHP Drew VerHagen on a two-year contract.

VerHagen, 31, spent six seasons with Detroit (2014-19) and pitched the past two seasons with the Nippon Ham Fighters in Japan. pic.twitter.com/vJey4Z5Alc
11 a.m.: Things are still a bit quiet on the hot stove front, but Jon Heyman reports that Bryce Harper could angle to bring fellow Las Vegas-born ballplayer Kris Bryant to Philly.
NL MVP Bryce Harper is stumping for good friend/Vegas neighbor Kris Bryant in Philly. Harper pull helped keep Realmuto. Phils have needs but also options (Schwarber, Conforto, Castellanos, etc.) KB does fit, either for 3B and/or OF. He, too, has options: Sea, Colo, SD, NYM, more
8:50 a.m.: The Cubs are eyeing one of free agency’s top stars to rekindle the hot stove: Jon Morosi reports that Chicago is among the favorites to land Carlos Correa. 
Source: The #Cubs, who engaged with Carlos Correa in negotiations before the lockout began, are among the favorites to sign him as the market reopens. ⁦@MLBNetwork@MLB https://t.co/rmnpEZcJYC
8:30 a.m.: The Braves took a serious run at Justin Verlander before he ended up re-signing with the Astros, per Jon Morosi — an indication the defending champs will look to bolster their rotation now that business is back on. 
Source: Prior to lockout, #Braves had detailed conversations with free agent Justin Verlander. He ultimately returned to Houston, but this indicates that the Braves are trying to fit a high-level starter *and* Freddie Freeman into their budget. @MLBNetwork @MLB
11:36 p.m.: Still no new free-agent signings as it inches toward midnight on the east coast. It seems like we won’t see any new deals until Friday, at this rate.
10:05 p.m.: Speaking of Freeman, the Dodgers have a “sincere” interest in him. So do the Braves and Yankees.
#Dodgers interest in Freddie Freeman is sincere, based on what I have heard from sources tonight. #Braves and #Yankees obviously are prominent in the Freeman marketplace. Some in the industry believe he could be next major free agent to sign. @MLBNetwork
10:03 p.m.: It would appear that Freddie Freeman isn’t the only former Brave that will be a hot commodity on the free-agent market. Jorge Soler is expected to draw a lot of interest with MLB’s institution of the universal DH.
The addition of the Universal DH should help free agents such as Jorge Soler. More than a half-dozen teams had already shown interest in the World Series MVP, though that number figures to rise now that the DH is coming to the NL.
9:10 p.m.: MLB Network’s Jon Morosi reports that free agency talks are “extremely” busy. There haven’t been any signings into this second wave of free agency, but Morosi says it will be a “busy weekend.”
Free agency talks are “extremely” busy, in the words of one agent. We’re only 2 hours into the market. Busy weekend ahead. @MLBNetwork
8:40 p.m.: So much for “pandemonium,” at least out of the gate. There still haven’t been any new free-agent deals or trades since MLB free agency reopened at 7 p.m. ET. Perhaps MLB GMs are gearing up for a late-night rush.
7:44 p.m.: No free-agent deals to report on yet, but Bob Nightengale reports that 16 teams will play their Opening Day on April 7 while 14 will have theirs on April 8. The first game on the schedule in 2022 will be a Red Sox-Yankees clash at Yankee Stadium.
7:29 p.m.: Something to keep in mind for Blue Jays fans — unvaccinated players are not able to play in Canada under the new CBA. As such, Toronto almost certainly won’t sign unvaccinated players.
Veteran @mlb player tells me and an MLB Official confirms. … unvaccinated players can’t play in Canada and under new CBA they will not be paid or receive service time for those games missed in Canada #wcvb
6:59 p.m.: Are the Yankees going to get Freddie Freeman? ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that rival executives are wondering if New York will move quickly on the former Braves slugger.
As the transactions begin, some rival executives curious about whether the Yankees attempt to move quickly on Freddie Freeman.
6:50 p.m.: The owners have officially voted to end the lockout meaning that the start of free agency is imminent. It will begin at about 7 p.m. ET when the lockout is set to officially be lifted.
On a technical level: the lockout will be lifted at around 7 p.m. ET, MLB says.
4 p.m.: For those who have been patiently waiting the restart of MLB, this should excite you just a bit: 
Asked one agent on what he expects free agency to be like. “Pandemonium,” he said.
MORE: Carlos Correa, Freddie Freeman lead list of MLB’s 35 best post-lockout free agents
SN is tracking where the top 25 free agents, according to our list, will be signing. Deals signed by other free agents will be included in the section below:
Here are the top 10 MLB free agents available after the lockout, according to SN’s Ryan Fagan. You can see his entire list of the top 35 players here.
Opening Day age: 27
November FA rank: 1
Why he’s here: Correa is one hell of a baseball player. The primary knock on him has been his struggle to stay healthy and on the field, but he played 148 games for Houston last year, popping 26 homers to go with 92 RBI, a 7.2 bWAR — that number led AL position players — and 131 OPS+. He’s an elite defensive shortstop — he won the Platinum Glove award as the AL’s best defensive player — and he’s been outstanding in the postseason, with an .849 OPS and 18 homers in 79 career playoff games. And, yeah, there’s the whole sign-stealing scandal that might rub fans the wrong way, but it’s hard to imagine that being an impediment for a team that sees Correa as a fit. A lot of people thought he’d be a great fit in Detroit, on an up-and-coming team with his former manager, A.J. Hinch, but the Tigers signed Javier Baez. The Rangers took two of the free-agent shortstops off the market (Corey Seager and Marcus Semien). So where does Correa land? The Yankees are still a possibility, if they open up the vault. Maybe he goes back to Houston? Philly? The Dodgers? 
Opening Day age: 32
November FA rank: 4
Why he’s here: Here’s what we wrote in November: “There’s just no way Atlanta can let him leave. None. Zero. But he’s a free agent, and he’s one hell of a player, so he’s on this list. Can you imagine how Braves fans would react if Atlanta offered Freeman a below-market deal and he left? It would be the shorted post-World Series honeymoon in the history of baseball.” Yeah … about that, well, the Braves didn’t offer him the right deal, apparently, and the chances of Freeman leaving seem a lot more real than they did a few months ago. Promise we’re not going to mention the Yankees for every player, but the idea of his lefty bat in the middle of that lineup with right-handed sluggers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, taking aim at that short porch in right field at Yankee Stadium? That makes a lot of sense.  
Opening Day age: 30
November FA rank: 7
Why he’s here: After a largely forgettable 2020 season, Bryant reestablished himself as an All-Star caliber player in 2021, with the Cubs and the Giants. He won’t get the bank-breaking blank-check mega-deal he once seemed destined for, but what team that fancies itself a World Series contender wouldn’t want to add a middle-of-the-order bat who is capable of starting at five positions on the field? If we’re betting, we’d bet that he returns to San Francisco, especially after Buster Posey retired and the Giants lost his right-handed bat in the lineup.
Opening Day age: 30
November FA rank: 8
Why he’s here: Castellanos, a shaky but passable defender, was helped by the news of a universal DH as much as any free-agent (other than maybe Nelson Cruz). Castellanos can hit, and he can hit anywhere. He’s the type of bat that helps a “meh” offense become a good offense, or a good offense become a great offense. Don’t overthink it. If your favorite team needs an outfielder (or a DH) and the offense needs a boost, Castellanos is the best option. 
Opening Day age: 29
November FA rank: 12
Why he’s here: Story struggled at the plate in 2021, no other way to put it. In the previous three years, he averaged a .292/.355/.554 slash line with a .909 OPS and 123 OPS+. In 2021, he posted a .251/.329/.471 slash line, with a .801 OPS and 103 OPS+. Like most hitters with the Rockies, Story’s numbers away from Coors Field have always been worse than his numbers at home, but his .203 average and .292 on-base percentage in 2021 were eye-opening. He did, though, hit more homers on the road (13) than at home (11). He’ll be able to find a multiple-year deal if he wants it, but if he wants to bet on himself and maximize his earning power, signing a one-year deal outside Colorado and producing like an All-Star/MVP candidate, then going back into the free-agent pool heading into his Age 30 season isn’t a bad option.  
Opening Day age: 29
November FA rank: 14
Why he’s here: Remember what we said about Castellanos? Same thing with Schwarber. The bat plays, at an elite level, and with the DH arriving in NL parks for 2022 and beyond, the lefty slugger should have no shortage of suitors once the machine starts back up. It’s funny, because as an outfielder who should be primarily a DH, that’s a drawback. But as a primary DH who can also play competent outfield for short stretches, it’s like a big bonus. 
Opening Day age: 27
November FA rank: N/A (wasn’t officially a free-agent when our original list published)
Why he’s here: Suzuki made his debut with the Hiroshima Carp at 18 years old, and by 21 he was a legitimate star in Japan. In his “worst” season — 2020, at Age 25 — he batted .300 with a .953 OPS, 25 homers and 75 RBIs in 118 games. He followed that with a spectacular 2021 campaign, blasting 38 homers in 134 games, to go with a .317 average and 1.069 OPS. Over at FanGraphs, Suzuki’s ZIPS projections put him in the 21-23 homer range for the next several seasons, which would represent a nice right-handed outfield power upgrade for lots of contending teams. So where will he wind up? He’s been connected to the Cubs, Giants, Red Sox, Mariners and Padres, among other teams. Basically, pretty much everyone’s interested, as they should be.
Opening Day age: 29
November FA rank: 16
Why he’s here: Just a stellar bounce-back year. Shoulder concerns might limit teams’ willingness to offer multiple years, but a gamble on a short (one or two year) deal at a higher salary seems like it would be appealing to lots of teams. Not Scherzer/Verlander money, but significant. And it wouldn’t be bad for Rodon to get back on the FA market with a healthy year or two under his belt at 30 or 31. 
Opening Day age: 34
November FA rank: 18
Why he’s here: Another guy it’s hard to imagine anywhere other than the team he’s always played with. Kershaw’s been outstanding when healthy — his 3.00 FIP was his best since 2016 — but he hasn’t made more than 28 starts since 2015 (he made 22 in 2021). How do you figure out a contract for him? I still think he winds up back in L.A., but there’s noise about the Rangers. They signed Seager and Semien, but even with Jon Gray added to the rotation, they could use another starter. Also, convincing Kershaw to return home would give the rebuilding club more credibility — a huge boost at the gate on days he pitches. 
Opening Day age: 30
November FA rank: 21
Why he’s here: Did any player bump his value more than Soler in the postseason? It’ll be interesting to see how teams evaluate him; do they give more weight to his struggles in Kansas City in 2020-21 or his dynamic play with Atlanta? Obviously, he’s pleased with the universal DH development, too.
