General Manager Meetings Are Underway, Owners To Also Meet This Week

Published

on

Monday marked the first day of Major League Baseball’s annual general manager meetings, as some call the official beginning of the hot stove season.

All 30 GMs are gathered together in Orlando, Florida, where big business will be discussed.

As the biggest name on the trade market by far this offseason, Giancarlo Stanton is bound to be talked about heavily as the Miami Marlins are bound to deal him. Derek Jeter sure has his options, as several teams are said to be in the running for Stanton.

Another name to be discussed is two-way phenom Shohei Ohtani. The 23-year-old Japanese star is on his way to the majors, as the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters have allowed him to begin his career in North America.

The Fighters will receive a $20 million posting fee from the team that signs Ohtani.

The GM meetings run until this Thursday.

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports that off-the-field issues to be addressed between the GMs are pace of play, the posting-system negotiations, instant replay, and technology.

In addition to the GMs, all 30 owners will meet Wednesday and Thursday at the same location.
