Joe Panik, eligible for salary arbitration for the first time, settled with the Giants on a $3.45 million contract for 2018, it was confirmed. Panik, 27, hit .288 with a .347 on-base percentage, 10 homers and 53 RBIs in 138 games. He won a Gold Glove award in 2016 despite playing 127 games. In the wake of the Giants’ 98-loss season, Panik is possible trade bait as a relatively inexpensive asset who’ll remain under team control and won’t be eligible for free agency until the 2021 season.
Fans began signing up Wednesday for free A’s tickets for the 50th anniversary game, and the team expects to accommodate everyone who’s interested in attending. The game is April 17, exactly 50 years after the A’s played their first game in Oakland. The A’s plan to take more reservations for freebies than the Coliseum can seat, to account for the expected no-show rate.
The A’s and Khris Davis settled on a $10.5 million salary for next season, which more than doubles his 2017 contract. Davis, who collected more than 40 homers and 100 RBIs in each of his two seasons with Oakland, was eligible for salary arbitration a year after beating the A’s in an arbitration hearing. In February, three arbitrators awarded $5 million to Davis; the A’s had offered $4.65 million.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
