With the MLB Off-Season underway, many teams are looking to upgrade, find replacements, and make major renovations to their clubs. Shamorie Ponds Jersey . TSN.ca looks at the days hottest off-season rumors and speculations. Melk No Longer in Bags? The Melky Cabrera era in Toronto may indeed be over, as it seems the left fielder’s preference may be to sign with another team. According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, Cabrera is no longer keen on playing his home games on the artificial turf at Rogers Centre. After an injury-plagued 2013 season, the 30-year old enjoyed a 2014 season where he hit 16 homers, knocked in 73 while batting .301 in 139 games. Should Cabrera move on and the Jays not sign or trade for another outfielder, the team will likely platoon Andy Dirks and Kevin Pillar in left field to start the season. Trumbo Flying Away? With the Arizona Diamondbacks snagging Cuban outfielder Yasmany Tomas to a six-year, $68.5 million contract, the team may look to ship out another slugging outfielder to help bolster their lineup. Mark Trumbo may be dealt, reports ESPN’s David Schoenfield, and there are plenty of teams who could be interested including the Miami Marlins, Seattle Mariners, Kansas City Royals, Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers. Arizona will be looking for young pitching prospects or major-league ready arms in any deal for Trumbo, who can also play first base. The 28-year old only played 88 games last season hitting .235 with 14 dingers. Master of the Central? Starter Justin Masterson may be looking to return to the American League in the familiar Central Division, where he played for the Cleveland Indians from 2009-2014. The right hander has received interest from four AL Central teams, writes Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer - the Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins, while the Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox have also expressed interest. Masterson had a record of 7-9 last season and a 5.88 earned run average with the Indians and the St. Louis Cardinals.

Raptors Jerseys 2020 . Canada will host the second stop on the circuit, the 2014 Skate Canada International in Kelowna, British Columbia from October 31 - November 2, 2014 at Prospera Place.MIAMI -- The Atlanta Braves made themselves at home all weekend at Marlins Park, including when Evan Gattis put a dent in the home run sculpture Sunday. Gattis broke a ninth-inning tie with a two-run homer, newcomer Shae Simmons made another key contribution and Atlanta completed a three-game sweep by beating Miami 4-2. "We played about as good a series as weve played in a while," Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said. The Braves pulled off the sweep after losing four consecutive games to Boston, and after being swept by the Marlins during a three-game visit to Miami a month ago. "Theyre a good ballclub, and its good to get three wins," Gattis said. Making the sweep even more impressive is the Marlins 20-11 record at Marlins Park. They lead the majors in home victories and made a bid for a ninth-inning comeback Sunday. Simmons, pitching in his second big league game, earned his first career save when he retired Christian Yelich with two on for the final out. Closer Craig Kimbrel was given the day off because of a heavy recent workload. "I got through it," Simmons said. "Im not going to say it wasnt a little intimidating." Simmons also got a key out in his major league debut Saturday. He left town with two game balls and two souvenir lineup cards. "Its kind of surreal," he said. "I dont really feel like its happened. I feel like I wasnt even out there." The series began with the Marlins and Braves tied atop the NL East. Now Miamis three games back. "This was a good test," manager Mike Redmond said. "Believe me, theres a sour taste in all of our mouths." With the score 2-all, Freddie Freeman started the ninth with a single, only his second hit in 36 at-bats this year against Miami. Gattis then hit a 2-0 fastball into the sculpture in distant left-centre field for his 11th homer, and the first this year allowed by Marlins closer Steve Cishek (4-2). "Thats a big home run there, in this ballpark off that reliever," Goonzalez said. Kawhi Leonard Jersey. "That doesnt happen very often. The matchup there didnt favour us." But Marlins Park seems to bring out the best in the Braves, their visit a month ago notwithstanding. Atlanta is 18-7 in the ballpark since it opened in 2012. Gattis is batting .333 with six homers and 20 RBIs in 18 games at Marlins Park. Hes a fan of the stadium and even the colorful sculpture, which has its share of detractors. "The sculpture? I like it," Gattis said. "I like this park. It has been good to me." Marcell Ozuna hit a two-run homer, his 10th. Those were the only runs allowed by Aaron Harang in 6 2-3 innings, but he remained winless in his past four starts for Atlanta. Alex Wood (5-5) pitched 1 1-3 perfect innings. Miamis Nathan Eovaldi gave up two runs while pitching a season-high eight innings. He has an ERA of 0.75 in five starts against Atlanta since the beginning of 2013. Shaky defence cost Eovaldi an early lead. Jason Heyward hit an RBI single in the third, and then the tying run scored when second baseman Derek Dietrich failed to turn a double play that would have ended the inning. "It was a tough series," Redmond said. "We didnt play our best, we didnt play great defence, we didnt run the bases well. We need to play better, but we know we can play with these guys. Every guy in that clubhouse believes that, but we have some work to do." NOTES: After the game, the Marlins optioned RHP Arquimedes Caminero to Triple-A New Orleans. ... Ozuna made a sliding catch in centre field to rob Chris Johnson of a hit in the seventh. ... Freeman fell to 3 for 24 lifetime against Eovaldi. ... The Marlins open a two-game series at home Monday against Tampa Bay, with Randy Wolf (0-1, 4.50) scheduled to pitch against Alex Cobb (1-2, 2.93). ... The Braves are off Monday and begin a two-game series Tuesday at home against Seattle, with Mike Minor (2-3, 3.41) scheduled to start against Hisashi Iwakuma (3-1, 2.39). ' ' '
