Peter Gammons of MLB Network reports that the Marlins would need Ronald Acuna in a trade for Christian Yelich.

Gammons goes so far as to say that the Marlins won't even discuss a second player without Acuna being included in a trade. That's probably fair, because the Braves likely wouldn't want discussions to go on if they have to include him. As good as Yelich has been, it's tough to imagine that Atlanta would be willing to include the player that many consider the best prospect in baseball. Assuming Gammons is correct, you probably won't see Yelich in an Brave uniform in 2018.

Tigers and SS Jose Iglesias avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.275 million contract.

That figure sits between the $6.8 million Iglesias requested and the $5.6 million the Tigers offered when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday. The 28-year-old infielder hit .255/.288/.369 with six homers and 54 RBI for the Tigers in 130 games while providing strong defense at shortstop.

Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch writes that Randal Grichuk is "not thrilled" with the notion of being a fourth outfielder in 2018.

Frederickson carefully points out that Grichuk didn't "gripe" about a potential bench role, but rather voiced his desire to be an everyday player. With Marcell Ozuna, Tommy Pham and Dexter Fowler under contract for the 2018 season, it would seem reasonable to assume that the 26-year-old outfielder would not be starting, barring an injury or trade to one of those three. While his lack of patience is a detriment, his power and adequate defense still make him an interesting player; one that could bring back a player that helps the Cardinals contend in 2018.

Royals sign OF Tyler Collins to a minor-league deal.

Collins became a free agent after being removed from Detroit's 40-man roster in November. He played 49 games with the Tigers in 2017; hitting .193/.278/.333 with five homers and 14 RBI. He'll likely compete for the fourth-outfield position with the Royals, as he's capable of playing any of the three spots.

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets "aren't enthusiastic" about moving Brandon Nimmo in a deal for Josh Harrison.

It was also reported earlier Wednesday that the Mets wouldn't move Nimmo in a deal for Andrew McCutchen, who was traded to the Giants on Monday. The 30-year-old infielder hit 16 homers for the Pirates with 12 stolen bases while registering a .771 OPS and playing four positions for Pittsburgh. He also recently mentioned that he'd prefer to play on a different club if the Pirates aren't going to contend in the next two years. New York lists Nimmo at the top of their centerfield depth chart right now, and with Michael Conforto out until May with a shoulder injury, it makes sense that they want to keep the 24-year-old outfielder without getting someone who can play center in return.

Red Sox invited INF prospect Michael Chavis to MLB spring training.

Chavis was one of the best power-hitting infielders in the minors in 2017; hitting 31 homers and slugging .563 at the High-A and Double-A level. There are concerns about how much swing-and-miss there is in his profile (113 strikeouts in 126 games) as well as where exactly he'll be able to play, but because of the plus-plus power in his right-handed bat, he has a chance to contribute to the Red Sox in 2018.

Mariners signed INF Rey Navarro to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Navarro has spent the last two seasons with the Angels, but hasn't played in the majors since 2015 when he was with the Orioles. He'll have a chance to win a utility job with Seattle if he performs well in spring training, although a ticket to Triple-A Tacoma as infield depth is more likely.

Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports that Carson Fulmer is expected to be given a chance to win a rotation spot in spring training.

Fulmer has tantalized with his stuff since being drafted with the eighth pick in 2015, but also frustrated with his inability to throw strikes at both the MLB and minor league levels. The 24-year-old right-hander deserves another shot at the rotation -- especially considering the White Sox will be nowhere near contention in 2018 -- but if he struggles with command again, a permanent move to the bullpen might not be far away.
