The Chicago Cubs have three catchers in youngster Willson Contreras and veterans David Ross and Miguel Montero. So, what does that mean for Tim Federowicz?

Andrew Miller is not ready to leave Yankees
Andrew Miller was ready for the question, if only because he’s heard it so many times in the Bronx. Is the Yankees’ setup man bracing for the dismantling that could be just around the corner? And, more specifically, had Miller considered the possibility that his appearance in Tuesday’s All-Star Game was his last on a national stage in pinstripes?
Yankees to Andrew Miller: If trade offer blows us away, we'll take it
Everyone has a price. For the Yankees and the impending trade market, that's a phrase that will likely be tested over the next few weeks. With the team trying to decided if selling, buying or standing pat is the best way to proceed at the Major League Baseball trade deadline, getting big value in return for assets is key. Especially when it's a player like Andrew Miller.
A flameout, a bottom, a Red Sox revelation: How Andrew Miller got here
“It was a confusing year,” Bobby Valentine said of the 2012 Red Sox, the team he managed to a 69-93 finish and last place in the AL East. And while the season is probably most remembered for being an odd blip for an organization that went on to win the World Series the next season, it also produced the emergence of Andrew Miller as a reliable relief pitcher.
Why Mets' Matt Harvey getting surgery is the right call
For all that has gone wrong for Matt Harvey this year, at least he’s got this: His last official act of his 2016 season was the right call, opting for surgery next week to correct his Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, which puts his focus squarely on a 2017 return. Maybe that’s when we’ll see the same guy who’s pitched so brilliantly at times instead of the stranger in a Met uniform who, we find out now, apparently was compromised by health this year.
Matt Harvey's brief career is starting to feel like a lifetime
Matt Harvey is only 27, but sometimes it seems like he’s 35. His four seasons of MLB play have transpired in what feels like dog years. Already, he’s gone through the New York tabloid wringer; earned a moniker that has aged about as well as a middle-school AIM screen name; had Tommy John surgery in 2013 and a subsequent reassuring comeback in 2015; battled neck bloat and tunnel traffic and innings limits; and reckoned with agent of chaos Scott Boras.
Kyle Seager should be an All-Star
Yes, I have expressed the position (publicly, loudly, in ways that are awkward at parties) that Kyle Seager is underappreciated outside of Seattle. And yes, if asked to pick a favorite current Mariner, non-Felix division, I would most certainly select Kyle. But that doesn't mean that there isn't a good argument that Kyle Seager should have heard his name announced yesterday, or that I can't be the one to make it.
Mets’ Matt Harvey opts for season-ending shoulder surgery
Matt Harvey will have season-ending surgery to relieve symptoms associated with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS), according to multiple reports citing his agent. The Mets righthander should be available by spring training 2017 barring any complications after the surgery.
Thoracic outlet syndrome, and what it means for Matt Harvey and the Mets
This is just the latest turn in the ongoing saga about Harvey's health. He had Tommy John surgery and missed all of 2014, though at one point he made noise about wanting to return late in the year, an idea that the team had to publicly reject.
