Welcome to the first AL East Round-Up of the 2014 off-season! A lot has happened thus far with all teams vying to overtake the Baltimore Orioles as next year’s divisional champion.

As per usual, the bulk of off-season rumours have circulated around the perrenial big spenders in the division- yes I’m talking about you Boston and New York- but with a several weeks remaining before pitchers and catchers report, teams still have plenty of time to restructure their teams.

Will the Red Sox and Blue Jays continue to play a chess match of high-powered moves? Will the Yankees really sit out the offseason or are they ready to pounce? How with the Orioles rebuild after losing two corner outfielders in the same winter? Where will the Rays sneak in?
