This thread is strictly for rumors, waiver claims and news. Signings will have their own individual threads. The Ervin Santana deal is an exception.

It looks like Brandon Belt is the first baseman for San Fran, after the club declined veteran Aubrey Huff's contract option, making him a free agent.
Yankees are fishing, but no one is biting on A-Rod:
Not only is his contract practically immovable, but it appears Alex Rodriguez just simply doesn't want to waive his no trade clause.

Michael Bourn isn't fooling around, as he's hired Scott Boras as his agent and is said to be seeking a $100 million contract.
