Mailbag: Judge extension, Vasquez’s Rule 5 Eligibility, DeJong

Good morning, everyone. Hope you all had an enjoyable weekend. Surely, it was better than the one my preferred football team had. I guess the Mike White era is over, but I digress. In baseball news: the Tigers have made the first free agency salvo, signing left-handed starter Eduardo Rodríguez to a five-year deal. It sure looks like they’re going for it, and why not? The Central division is not all that great.

There’s nothing doing (yet) on the free agent front for the Yankees, but expect a flurry of transactions this week. The Rule 5 protection deadline is Friday, and the Yankees currently have a full 40-man roster, so something’s gotta give. Whether that’s trading Rule 5 eligible prospects or waiving current 40-man players remains to be seen. We’ll keep you up to date on everything that goes down.

In the meantime, it’s mailbag day. As usual: send your questions to viewsfrom314 at gmail dot com. We’ll pick our favorites each week. Note that your questions may be edited for clarity.
