BERLIN -- Bayern Munichs rivals have been rebuilding as they attempt to stop the Bavarian powerhouse claiming an unprecedented five straight Bundesliga titles.While the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Schalke, and Wolfsburg have made wholesale changes to their squads this offseason, Bayern has been uncharacteristically restrained in the transfer market, with new coach Carlo Ancelotti inheriting a dominant side from Pep Guardiola.Guardiola won the German league in each of his three seasons and Ancelotti will be expected to continue the run. The Italians tenure will also be judged on success in the Champions League, where Guardiola arguably disappointed after failing to match Jupp Heynckes 2013 treble-winning feat.The league returns on Friday with Bayern hosting Werder Bremen in Munich. Heres a closer look at the champion and challengers ahead of the 54th Bundesliga:BAYERNExciting Portugal youngster Renato Sanches and former Dortmund captain Mats Hummels are Bayerns only summer additions. Ancelotti resisted the urge to tinker with the double-winning side he inherited.Hummels return brings Germanys partnership with Jerome Boateng in central defense to club level, while expectations of 19-year-old Sanches have soared following his impressive performances at Euro 2016.Bayern allowed Mario Goetze to return to Dortmund, along with Sebastian Rode, while defenders Medhi Benatia and Serdar Tasci have also departed.Injuries mean Ancelotti is yet to have a full squad at his disposal but the Italian says he has enough talent. The 2-0 win at Dortmund in the German Super Cup, and 5-0 victory at Carl Zeiss Jena in the German Cup is a promising start.DORTMUNDLast years runner-up, Dortmund, has seen Hummels, Ilkay Gundogan. and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all leave, forcing the club to spend over 100 million euros on a host of eye-catching additions.Were facing a season of upheaval. That doesnt mean though that we give up on our ambitions, Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said. Watzke said there was no alternative to the summer splurge.Goetze, back after three disappointing seasons at Bayern, is under pressure to regain fans support after his bitter departure in 2013. Fellow German international Andre Schuerrle and Rode complete the signings from Bundesliga rivals.Dortmund has also shopped abroad, snapping up French attacking midfielder Ousmane Dembele from Rennes, Marc Bartra from Barcelona, fellow defender Raphael Guerreiro of Portugal, and midfielders Emre Mor and Mikel Merino.The club managed to bring nearly all the top European talents to Dortmund in this transfer period, Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said of his former side.THE RESTBayer Leverkusen seems the likeliest candidate to challenge the top two, led by Javier Chicharito Hernandez, who will miss the start of the season after breaking his hand.Borussia Moenchengladbach has Christoph Kramer back from Leverkusen, Schalke spent a club-record 22.5 million euros on exciting Swiss forward Breel Embolo, Wolfsburg secured Germany forward Mario Gomezs return to the Bundesliga, and Hamburger SVs capture of Croat midfielder Alen Halilovic from Barcelona already looks like an inspired move.Promoted Leipzig, backed by an energy drink company, has ambitions of European qualification in its first Bundesliga season but is sure to receive a hostile reception from opposing fans who resent its fast progress. The club was founded as recently as in 2009. Maurice Cheeks Jersey .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win.

Jerryd Bayless Jersey . - Goaltender Philippe Desrosiers of the Rimouski Oceanic has broken a shutout record that was only three months old in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Julius Erving Jersey . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. OXON HILL, Md. -- All-Star closers Aroldis Chapman, Mark Melancon and Wade Davis moved to different bullpens. Chris Sale boosted a big rotation in Boston. And the Washington Nationals got their fans talking -- a lot.As teams packed up along the Potomac River and headed home Thursday, a look at what did and didnt happen this week at the winter meetings:---WHOS LEFT?Major league home run leader Mark Trumbo, fellow sluggers Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista, and center fielder Dexter Fowler are available free agents. So is closer Kenley Jansen, whos attracting serious interest from the Marlins. But Miami has a policy of not giving no-trade clauses, and thats troubling to some players and agents.Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said theres no reason to worry.The belief when you enter into these deals is that youre going to be together for the length of the contract, he said.Try telling that to Jose Reyes -- he signed a six-year deal with Miami before 2012, then got traded onto the artificial turf in Toronto after just one season.HOLIDAY SHOPPINGPittsburgh outfielder Andrew McCutchen was all-but-gone at these meetings. Thats what most everyone thought, anyway.But the former MVP is going to PirateFest this weekend, still on the team. General manager Neal Huntington says he plans to talk things over with McCutchen before the festivities.We took calls, we listened, we engaged, Huntington said. We felt the right move was to hold the player.OPEN FOR BUSINESSThe White Sox got quite a haul of prospects by trading Sale and Adam Eaton, and theyre far from done. Closer David Robertson, starter Jose Quintana or third baseeman Todd Frazier could be next.ddddddddddddWe embrace the challenge that lies ahead of us, GM Rick Hahn said. We have for the last several months ... but its nowhere near completed.A year removed from winning the World Series, the Royals are in a different spot. Several of their stars are eligible for free agency after this season -- first baseman Eric Hosmer, outfielder Lorenzo Cain and pitcher Danny Duffy, among them -- and KC doesnt want to lose them with nothing in return. They began revamping the roster by trading Davis to the champion Cubs for young, powerful Jorge Soler.FIELD DAYExtra emphasis is being put these days on guys who can handle more than one spot. With David Ortiz retiring, Boston wants someone who could DH and also play first base -- Mitch Moreland is set to be that person. The Royals like Soler as a right fielder and DH. The Nationals are looking at Trea Turner in the outfield and at shortstop.Houston might see whether Carlos Beltran can play first base. And Colorado might turn newly signed Ian Desmond into a first baseman -- he was a shortstop in Washington and an outfielder in Texas.WINNERS AND LOSERSWho did the best and who did the worst at these meetings? Fact is, the answer might not come for a few years.The AL East champion Red Sox looked good getting Sale from the White Sox for a hefty package. The White Sox looked smart getting a trio of young, talented pitchers for outfielder Adam Eaton.But until fans see how the prospects turn out, well, everyone will just have to wait.
