The 2016-17 MLB offseason is already picking up steam here midway through the month of November, with a number of significant moves already made, as detailed by Spotrac.

Kendrys Morales signed with the Toronto Blue Jays, veteran starters Bartolo Colon and R.A. Dickey both joined the Atlanta Braves on one-year deals, and Jesse Chavez will get a chance to start after agreeing to terms with the Los Angeles Angels.

On the trade market, Howie Kendrick was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies, and the Dodgers also flipped Carlos Ruiz to the Seattle Mariners for left-hander Vidal Nuno.
