Top stories from last week:

- Amateur scouting director Damon Oppenheimer currently has the “most buzz” for the Angels GM job. The Yankees started their pro-scouting meetings in the Bronx last week.
- The front office is unlikely to okay a huge bid for Yu Darvish this offseason, even though the right-hander makes a ton of sense for them.
- Curtis Granderson and Bartolo Colon were nominated for some Players Choice Awards. Ivan Nova earned a spot on Baseball America’s All-Rookie Team.
