  • Jung Ho Kang (knee) begins fielding grounders
    Jung Ho Kang (knee) began fielding ground balls on Friday.

    Advice: Kang posted a video on his Instagram account of him fielding grounders and he was moving around without any apparent limitations. Nearly five months removed from surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus and fractured tibia, Kang will begin the season on the disabled list but is hoping to be activated before the end of April. Yesterday, 2:50 pm
  • Royals, Moustakas reach two-year agreement
    Royals and 3B Mike Moustakas avoided arbitration by agreeing to a two-year, $14.3 million contract.

    Advice: The deal buys out the final two years of Moustakas' arbitration eligibility. The third baseman had requested $7 million when the two sides exchanged figures last month, with the Royals offering $4.2 million. It's a worthy raise for the 27-year-old after he batted .284/.348/.470 with 22 home runs and 82 RBI last season. Thursday, 6:52 pm
  • Daniels plans to talk extension with Beltre
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said he plans to engage Adrian Beltre early in camp about a possible contract extension.

    Advice: Beltre is on record as being interested in such a discussion, and last month it was reported that the sides had talked about the idea, at least in passing. Beltre has been a staple at third base for the Rangers since signing a six-year deal with the club in 2011. He will turn 37 years old just days after the start of the season. Thursday, 1:38 pm
  • Report: Dodgers shopping Alex Guerrero
    The Dodgers are looking to trade IF/OF Alex Guerrero, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

    Advice: The Dodgers' outfield is full and the team has a cheaper utility option in Enrique Hernandez. Rosenthal suggests Guerrero's best fit is in the American League. The 29-year-old hit just .233 with 11 homers last season. He carries a $5 million base salary for 2016. Thursday, 11:51 am
  • Shaw a 'near-lock' for Opening Day roster
    Travis Shaw is a "near-lock" to make the Red Sox's Opening Day roster, according to Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal.

    Advice: We figured as much after Shaw saw 226 at-bats with the big club in 2015. Hanley Ramirez is penciled in as the starting first baseman but Shaw could be employed as a defensive replacement late in games. Shaw can also play third base if Pablo Sandoval ever needs a day off. Thursday, 10:04 am
  • Marlins to be 'mindful' with Martin Prado
    The Marlins are going to be "mindful" about Martin Prado's playing time this year.

    Advice: The 32-year-old is coming off a productive season (.288, 63 RBI in 500 at-bats) despite battling shoulder and wrist issues. Chris Johnson would likely spell Prado at third on his days off. Derek Dietrich and Miguel Rojas could also see time at the hot corner. Thursday, 9:36 am
  • Jays, Donaldson talked more than 2-yr deal
    Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said Wednesday that the club talked about "many, many scenarios" with Josh Donaldson before agreeing to a two-year deal.

    Advice: In other words, the possibility of a long-term deal was proposed. Ultimately, the two sides found common ground on a deal that bought out two years of arbitration. If Donaldson continues to perform at a high level, he's looking at a massive salary for his final year of team control in 2018. He might be more inclined to test free agency at that point, but it would be no surprise if the Blue Jays bring up the possibility again. Wednesday, 12:04 pm
  • Phillies acquire Featherston from Angels
    Phillies acquired INF Taylor Featherston from the Angels for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

    Advice: Featherston was designated for assignment last week after the Angels claimed Christian Friedrich off waivers from the Rockies. The 26-year-old stuck with the big club last season as a Rule 5 pick, but he batted just .162/.212/.247 over 169 plate appearances. Phillies general manager Matt Klentak was previously the assistant GM with the Angels, so he's clearly a fan. A strong defender, Featherston has options remaining, so he can be stashed in Triple-A. Wednesday, 11:10 am
  • Blue Jays finalize 2-yr deal with Donaldson
    Blue Jays and 3B Josh Donaldson avoided arbitration by agreeing to a two-year, $28.65 million contract.

    Advice: The reigning AL MVP will make $11.65 million in 2016 and $17 million in 2017. The two sides were forced to go to an arbitration hearing last winter, which Donaldson won, but they were able to work out a multi-year contract this time. Donaldson remains under team control through 2018. The new deal gives the Blue Jays some cost certainty, which is a nice bonus with Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista due to become free agents after 2016. Wednesday, 9:33 am
  • Donaldson's deal with Blue Jays worth $28.65M
    Josh Donaldson's new two-year deal with the Blue Jays is worth $28.65 million, according to the Associated Press.

    Advice: Shi Davidi of reported late Monday night that the two sides had agreed to a deal worth around $29 million, but now we have the exact number. Donaldson won his arbitration case against the Blue Jays last winter, but the two sides were able to avoid a hearing this time around. The 2015 AL MVP will still be under team control for one more year after this new deal expires. Tuesday, 8:20 am
  • Jays, Donaldson reach two-year, $29M pact
    Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports that the Blue Jays have signed Josh Donaldson to a two-year contract worth nearly $29 million.

    Advice: The Blue Jays are a file and trial team, so they needed to reach a multi-year pact in order to avoid an arbitration hearing next week. Donaldson's new contract leaves him with one more year of arbitration eligibility before he hits free agency after the 2018 campaign. The reigning American League MVP batted .297/.371/.568 with 41 home runs, 123 RBI and 122 runs scored in 2015. Monday, 8:10 pm
  • D'Backs considering moving Tomas to left
    According to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Friday that the club is considering re-aligning their outfield, with Yasmany Tomas moving to left field and David Peralta shifting to right.

    Advice: Tomas graded out very poorly in right field after shifting from third base last season. With Peralta the better defender of the two, it makes sense why they would want to move him to right field instead. Regardless of where he roams the outfield though, Tomas will be in the lineup because of his bat, which should provide ample fantasy goodness. Saturday, 6:26 am

  • Giants sign Conor Gillaspie to minors deal
    Giants signed INF Conor Gillaspie to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The deal will presumably include an invitation to major league spring training as well. The 28-year-old had a rough go of things in 2015, slashing .228/.269/.359 with four homers and 24 RBI in 75 games between the White Sox and Angels. He'll compete for a bench spot with the Giants. Friday, 7:21 pm

  • Giants want Juan Uribe for utility role
    ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Giants have talked to Juan Uribe about a utility role, "but the salary ask has been too expensive for them."

    Advice: Uribe, who turns 37 in March, had two of his most productive seasons as a Giant back in 2009 and 2010. However, he's also being pursued by the Indians and would likely be in line for quite a bit more playing time with them. Uribe sported a 253/.320/.417 batting line with 14 homers and 43 RBI last season between the Dodgers, Braves, and Mets. Friday, 1:19 pm

  • Taylor Featherston designated for assignment
    Angels designated INF Taylor Featherston for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Christian Friedrich. Featherston sported a hideous .162/.212/.247 batting line for the Halos last season after they scooped him up in the Rule 5 Draft. There's a decent chance he'll clear waivers. Friday, 10:50 am
  • Josh Donaldson's arb. hearing set for Feb. 15
    Josh Donaldson's arbitration hearing with the Blue Jays is set for February 15.

    Advice: The Blue Jays were a "file-and-trial" team under former general manager Alex Anthopoulos, and president Mark Shapiro has said the club plans to continue that approach for at least this season. The hope is that a long-term contract between the two sides will be worked out, but it's unclear how good the chances are of that happening. Donaldson is under team control through 2018. Friday, 5:12 am
  • Jays hoping for long-term deal with Donaldson
    Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said the team is "going to work toward a multi-year deal" with Josh Donaldson.

    Advice: Donaldson is under team control through 2018, giving the team some leverage, but the reigning AL MVP surely won't sign on for a long-term deal cheaply. Presently, the two sides are just $450,000 apart in arbitration figures filed last month, so there shouldn't be any problem getting something done for 2016 if extension talks don't progress. The third baseman is a fantasy monster heading into the season after batting .297/.371/.568 with 41 home runs, 123 RBI and 122 runs scored last year. Thursday, 4:48 pm
