King of clubs? Teams start to show cards at winter meetings
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Deal the New York Yankees in for the Manny Machado tournament. And J.T. Realmuto? A lot of teams already are sitting at that table.
The baseball winter meetings began in earnest along the Vegas Strip on Monday, and clubs slowly started to show their cards.
Noah Syndergaard and Zack Wheeler are attracting trade interest, the Mets say. Corey Kluber and Madison Bumgarner keep popping up in swap speculation. But still no indication of where hometown slugger Bryce Harper might go.

Manager Clint Hurdle, though, put the feat in perspective.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Hunter Renfroe couldn't help but admire his pinch-hit, go-ahead grand slam as it flew toward the brick warehouse in the left-field corner at Petco Park.
He held his bat out with his left hand for a moment before flipping it and beginning his trot.
"I knew it was gone as soon as I hit it, so I was thinking, 'Get around the bases without falling,'" Renfroe said after his slam lifted Tyson Ross and the San Diego Padres to a 6-3 victory against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.

PHOENIX (AP) — As Tyson Ross said, "It got close, but no cigar."
That's the way it's always been over the last half-century when the San Diego Padres flirt with a no-hitter.

PHOENIX (AP) — Tyson Ross lost his bid to pitch the first no-hitter in the history of the San Diego Padres when rookie center fielder Franchy Cordero appeared to misplay a ball with two outs in the eighth inning Friday night of a 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Playing their 7,835th game since joining the majors in 1969, the Padres again came agonizingly close to their first no-no. They remain the only team in the big leagues that has never thrown a no-hitter.

Gomez, Ross return and lead Rangers to 10-4 win
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Tyson Ross wasn't going to rush his return to a major league mound and it paid off as the Texas Rangers defeated the Seattle Mariners 10-4 on Friday night.
Throughout his rehab process after surgery to correct Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, the right-handed pitcher had adopted a simple approach. He would take it day-by-day, evaluate each rehab start and would never push to get back too early.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Rangers have activated right-hander Tyson Ross for his Texas debut following offseason surgery, and first baseman Mike Napoli and center fielder Carlos Gomez are coming off the disabled list.

AP source: Rangers agree to $6M deal with RHP Tyson Ross
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — A person with knowledge of the deal says the Texas Rangers and right-hander Tyson Ross have agreed on a $6 million, one-year contract.
The person spoke to The Association Press on condition of anonymity Friday night because the deal was pending a physical.
Ross, who made just one start for San Diego last season because of shoulder problems, becomes a candidate for a rotation led by aces Cole Hamels and Yu Darvish and including Martin Perez.
Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols has undergone surgery on his right foot, possibly sidelining him past opening day. The three-time NL MVP was bothered by plantar fasciitis repeatedly during the regular season. The Angels say his estimated return to play is four months.

Ross, Revere, Asche among 35 new free agents
NEW YORK (AP) — Tyson Ross, an All-Star pitcher for San Diego two years ago, was among 35 players who became free agents when their teams declined to offer them 2017 contracts on Friday.
Washington outfielder Ben Revere and Philadelphia outfielder Cody Asche also were cut loose, along with Arizona catcher Welington Castillo and pitcher Rubby De La Rosa; Baltimore pitcher Vance Worley; and Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Louis Coleman.
Adam Rosales counts a home run off Madison Bumgarner among the career-high eight that he has blasted this season. None of the opposing pitchers have been as perplexing as the one he faced Saturday afternoon in an empty Petco Park save for the gaggle of Padres huddled behind the plate.
The occasion: Tyson Ross’ second live batting practice since an opening day start gave way to a season-long stint on the disabled list.
One starter finished last season in the Florida State League. Another was a throw-in in the last of the Padres’ makeover transactions this summer. The other three were simply cut loose by organizations earlier this year.
Indeed, the Padres have done what they can to patch together a rotation amid a smattering of injuries of trades that have reset a one-time strength into the biggest liability heading into the final seven weeks of the season. Of course, you don’t have...
Tyson Ross' season stopped almost as soon as it started, the Padres' No. 1 starter suffering a shoulder strain in his first bullpen session after opening day. Wednesday morning, the right-hander sustained a far odder, albeit less serious, injury.
Ross twisted his left ankle while doing exercises in his hotel room and subsequently had the next step in his rehab delayed. An extended bullpen session, previously scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, was scrapped after Ross...
