Mark Melancon has agreed to a contract with the Giants, per Buster Olney of ESPN.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post says it's in the four-year, $62 million range. Late-inning bullpen issues were a big problem for the Giants in 2016, especially in the second half and postseason, and Melancon brings a terrific amount of stability to that department. He doesn't have the strikeout rates of some other top-tier closers (like free agents Aroldis Chapman and Kenley Jansen) but the 31-year-old right-hander boasts a 1.80 ERA and 0.91 WHIP over his last 290 innings dating back to the beginning of the 2013 season. An official announcement should be coming soon, after Melancon passes his pre-signing physical.
Dec 5 - 12:43 PM's T.R. Sullivan says other teams are "intrigued" by Rangers reliever Keone Kela.

Kela missed a large chunk of the 2016 season following right elbow surgery and wound up with an unsightly 6.09 ERA, but the 23-year-old right-hander is a legitimate relief talent with club control that runs through 2020. He posted an outstanding 2.39 ERA and 68/18 K/BB ratio over 60 1/3 innings for the Rangers in 2015.

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, closer Wade Davis is creating buzz among opposing executives.

Passan goes as far as to call Davis the "likeliest Royal to move" this winter in a trade. Lorenzo Cain might also be on the block given his looming free agency and what it would cost to lock him up long term. Davis, 31, posted a 1.87 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 47/16 K/BB ratio in 43 1/3 innings this year for Kansas City while fighting through some forearm issues. He has a ridiculous 1.18 ERA over his last 182 2/3 innings.

Royals manager Ned Yost noted Monday that Matt Strahm will compete for a spot in the rotation next spring.

Veteran right-hander Chris Young will be his primary competition. Strahm carries some intrigue as a deep fantasy sleeper after registering a 1.23 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 22 innings this summer out of the Kansas City bullpen. The young southpaw spent most of the year as a starter at Double-A.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal confirms the Giants are close to an agreement with Mark Melancon.

Les Shapiro of Mile High Sports Radio AM 1340 was the first on this report. Melancon fits the Giants' obvious need for a closer and this deal -- if finalized -- should jumpstart the bidding for fellow elite relievers Kenley Jansen and Aroldis Chapman. Melancon, 31, had a brilliant 1.64 ERA, 0.897 WHIP, and 65/12 K/BB ratio in 71 1/3 innings this summer between the Pirates and Nationals.
