Darvish now asks: Were Astros stealing off me?

Rob Manfred's 9-page memo detailing the Astros' sign-stealing system and subsequent punishments stated the team did indeed use both systems — the replay room to give catcher signs to a baserunners, the center-field camera that led to trash-can banging — during the postseason, when the Astros went 8-1 at Minute Maid Park and defeated the Dodgers in seven games in the World Series.

Dodgers agree to 1-year deal with RHP Nelson

The Dodgers and free-agent Jimmy Nelson agreed to a one-year deal, the team announced. The agreement features several incentives should the right-hander return to his 2017 form, sources told ESPN.

Jimmy Nelson's deal with the Dodgers, first reported by the LA Times, could be worth more than $13 million over these next two seasons if he hits all his incentives. He has dealt with shoulder and elbow injuries the last two years, but can help out of the rotation or the bullpen if healthy.

Nelson, per source, gets a $750,000 base salary in 2020 and a $2M club option for 2021, which turns into a $5M mutual option with 60 innings or 40 appearances in 2020.
