We have finally arrived at the start of Spring Training 2019. Pitchers and catchers report this week and the first Cactus League game to kick of the 2019 season is 2 weeks away, but that does not mean all our questions have been answered.

Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are still Free Agents searching for that lucrative, long term deal, but will they find it? Houston Astros owner Jim Crane made some comments that might be the start of a big free agency paradigm shift.

Plus, J.T. Realmuto has finally found his way out of Miami and to a new team hoping to carry over a successful season from last year. Will he find some “Brotherly Love” with his new ball club or will this be a short lived stint?

Also, Hall of Famer Frank Robinson passed away this week. We look back at his life in the big leagues as a player and as a manager.

Finally, our first team breakdowns are here. We break down the AL East, tell you who will finish where, and discuss some new proposed rule changes while we are at it.

All that and more this week on Out of Left Field.
Listen to “Out of Left Field: Harper and Machado Still not signed, A.L.East Spring Training Preview” on Spreaker.
