Day one of the 2013 MLB GM and Owners meetings has come and gone with little fanfare.
The biggest news coming out of Seattle was the hiring of Trent Jewett as Lloyd McClendon‘s bench coach for 2014. The only other tidbit affecting the Mariners was Kendrys Morales rejecting the one-year qualifying offer, as expected.
Here are a few items of note from around the league:
- The Detroit Tigers are reportedly interested in closer Joe Nathan.
- None of the 13 players that received qualifying offers accepted them.
- Houston is interested in Shin-Soo Choo.
- Minnesota is moving catcher Joe Mauer to first base next season, are reportedly interested in Jarrod Saltalamacchia as the new catcher.
- The Rockies and Cardinals may be working on the first big deal of the winter.
- The Braves will move to a new stadium 10-miles north of Atlanta for the 2017 season.
Day two is Tuesday. If anything goes down tonight, we will bring it to you when it breaks.
