Texas tried out Asdrubal Cabrera last season, but it didn't seem like a good fit, which led to him quickly getting traded away to the Washington Nationals. In total, they had six different players start a game at third base last season, but now have a two-time All-Star and former Home Run Derby Champion taking over the hot corner. Frazier played in 133 games last season with the New York Mets, batting .251 with 21 home runs and 67 RBIs. In eight major league seasons he is a career .243 hitter with 214 home runs and 624 RBIs.
The Los Angeles Dodgers brought back an old friend to add to their pitching staff this weekend, agreeing to a deal with Alex Wood on a one-year contract. The left-hander got a $4 million contract after spending a season with the Cincinnati Reds in 2019. Before that, he was with Los Angeles from 2015 to 2018, including recording 27 starts and six relief appearances for them in 2018. He went 9-7 with a 3.68 ERA that season, and went on to go 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA in nine Postseason appearances, which ended in a World Series loss to the Boston Red Sox. And that was one season after he put together his best year yet, going 16-3 with a 2.72 ERA in 15 starts, en route to his first All-Star appearance. Although, in his lone season with the Reds, Wood went a dismal 1-3 with a 5.80 ERA, but dealt with a back injury all season long.
