J.P. Crawford, a first-round pick in the 2013 amateur draft, will take over at shortstop.

Gold Glove victor Andrelton Simmons is entrenched at shortstop for the Angels.

Upton dealt with thumb and shoulder injuries most of last season and didn't play in the majors.

The top-notch defender committed just seven errors last season and eight in 2016.

Netflix' A Christmas Prince tweet: A gaffe or invasion of privacy?
Netflix, after all, produced and promoted the movie, which is in the vein of an uplifting, unapologetically cheery Hallmark film. The playful Netflix Twitter elf even tweeted back some sass at some of its responders.

Oklahoma has lowest gas prices in US, Arkansas 5th lowest

Rockies: Colorado competed $27 million, three-year contracts with right-hander Bryan Shaw and lefty Jake McGee. As such, Santana signing with the Phillies inherently puts more pressure on Boston to secure the services of one of the aforementioned sluggers or another player capable of providing the offensive boost the Red Sox desperately need after hitting an American League-low 168 home runs in 2017.

Contreras, 46, played six seasons with the White Sox from 2004-09, going 55-56 with a 4.66 ERA over 900 innings and 628 strikeouts in 148 games (146 starts).

Lobaton will report to big-league spring training and try to win a backup job behind Travis d'Arnaud. He's 5 for 18 (.278) with two homers in nine postseason games. Santana has a.249 career batting average and.445 slugging percentage.

In exchange, the Dodgers acquired third baseman Casey Blake.
