Padres acquire Chase Headley and Bryan Mitchell in trade with Yankees

The San Diego Padres have acquired third baseman Chase Headley and pitcher Bryan Mitchell from the New York Yankees in exchange for outfielder Jabari Blash.

What It Means:

The trade will be seen as a salary dump for the Yankees, who will be off the hook for the $13 million they owed Headley, who spent the first seven-plus years of his career with San Diego, for 2018. Mitchell figures to be a fit for the Padres' rotation, which needed a significant upgrade if they intended on improving in 2018.

Headley posted a .758 OPS in 147 games with the Bombers in 2017.

Marlins will receive Starlin Castro, prospects in Giancarlo Stanton deal

According to the New York Post's Joel Sherman, the Miami Marlins are receiving second baseman/shortstop Starlin Castro, as well as two minor-league prospects, from the New York Yankees in exchange for outfielder Giancarlo Stanton.

What It Means:

The Marlins will be the 28-year-old's third team in four years and will pick up the remaining two years and $22.7 million left on his contract. He carries a $16 million club option for 2020. As for the two prospects, they are 21-year-old pitcher Jorge Guzman and 18-year-old shortstop Jose Devers, cousin of Boston Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers.

Last season, Castro played in 112 games, accounted for 16 home runs and 63 RBI, and hit to a .345 wOBA for the Yankees.

Deal reportedly in place to send Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton to Yankees

According to FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman, the Miami Marlins have agreed on a deal to send outfielder Giancarlo Stanton to the New York Yankees.

What It Means:

The deal hasn't been made official yet, but Miami's return is expected to be second baseman Starlin Castro along with a few prospects, none of which have been identified yet. Stanton is fully expected to approve the trade to New York, having named the Yankees as one of the teams he would be willing to be traded to despite his no-trade clause. There's been no word on if the Marlins will pay any of the money remaining on the slugger's 13-year, $325 million contract.

In 2017, Stanton led the majors with 59 home runs. He slashed .281/.376/.631 and finished the year 5th among all hitters with a 3.80 nERD.

Shohei Ohtani signs with the Los Angeles Angels

Japanese two-way star Shohei Ohtani has signed with the Los Angeles Angels.

What It Means:

Ohtani's agent released a statement announcing the decision: “This morning, after a thorough, detailed process, Shohei Ohtani has decided to sign with the Los Angeles Angels. Shohei is humbled and flattered by all the time and effort that so many teams put into their presentations and sincerely thanks them for their professionalism. In the end, he felt a strong connection with the Angels and believes they can best help him reach his goals in Major League Baseball."

Ohtani, 23, posted a .962 OPS and 3.20 ERA with Nippon of the Japan Pacific League in 2017.

Mariners acquire Dee Gordon from Marlins for prospects

The Seattle Mariners acquired Dee Gordon from the Miami Marlins in exchange for minor leaguers Robert Dugger, Nick Neidert and Christopher Torres.

What It Means:

The Mariners will reportedly move the two-time All-Star to center field in 2018.

Gordon led Major League Baseball in steals last season with 60 while hitting .308/.341/.375.
