The trade comes as somewhat of a surprise as Cron played the majority of games at first base for Los Angeles in 2017 (100 to be exact), and the only other true first baseman they have on the roster is 38-year-old Albert Pujols.

The biggest decision the team faces at the position is whether to extend Golden Tate later this offseason,Tate is entering the final year of his contract and has been a model of consistency for the Lions, catching at least 90 passes each of his four years with the team,The other decision is what to do with TJ Jones.

He’s a restricted free agent, and according to reports, the team doesn’t plan to offer him a one-year, $1.9 million tender.

The Lions could still re-sign the young veteran, for less money or multiple years, and should strongly consider it after his 30-catch breakout in 2017.

Jones also brings extra value as a backup return man to Jamal Agnew,But what the Lions do at tight end carries significantly more intrigue,There have been multiple reports the team is listening to offers for Eric Ebron and are open to dealing the former first-round pick.

He’s coming off a strong second half last season, and at 24 years old, there remains plenty of upside,Ebron is scheduled to work the 2018 season under a fifth-year option of his rookie deal, which will pay him $8.25 million.

In the last two seasons with McCutchen on the roster, the Pirates went 75-87 in 2017 and 78-83 in 2016. He was traded this offseason for Kyle Crick, a minor-league outfielder and cash. Freese wishes the team had done more to make McCutchen’s last years with the Pirates more memorable.

You look at a guy like Cutch, I think he deserved better just in the sense that he’s a guy that took this organization from the ground to the spotlight. He did it. Nobody else, Freese told reporters Friday, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He was the centerpiece, and you just hope that all the people in Pittsburgh, all the fans, you wish it could have ended better for him. Surrounding him with a group that wanted to beat some ass for him.

The Pirates won 98 games in 2015 with McCutchen in the center of it all. But over the last two years he struggled and the team struggled even more. The Pirates put themselves in a situation where they had to start rebuilding.
