  • Braves outright Ramiro Pena to Triple-A
    Braves sent INF Ramiro Pena outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Pena was designated for assignment earlier in the week to make room on the 40-man roster. He was arbitration eligible this winter, which may have played a role in the move as well. It's unclear if he'll accept the assignment or attempt to find a better opportunity elsewhere through free agency. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays designate Sean Rodriguez for assignment
    Rays designated INF/OF Sean Rodriguez for assignment.

    Advice: Due another raise through arbitration, Rodriguez was considered a likely non-tender candidate, so the Rays simply decided to cut ties a little bit early. He could draw interest on waivers due to his versatility. Rodriguez batted .211/.258/.443 with 12 home runs over 259 plate appearances this past season. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Phelps spent most of 2014 with the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate, batting .259/.361/.388 with seven homers and 51 RBI in 99 games. The 27-year-old could compete for a bench job in the spring. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Phillies 'love' Mookie Betts
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick writes that the Phillies "love" Mookie Betts of the Red Sox.

    Advice: Aw, that's sweet. The Phillies are shopping Cole Hamels as part of their rebuilding effort and the Red Sox have plenty of moving parts to trade, so the two sides match up quite well. Betts would be a logical fit in a potential return package. Rotoworld.com

  • Figueroa released by Rays
    Rays released 2B Cole Figueroa.

    Advice: Figueroa batted .233/.286/.326 in 23 games with the Rays in 2014. The 27-year-old is now a free agent and will look to catch on with another club, likely on a minor league deal. Rotoworld.com

  • Rangers bring back INF Lucas on minors deal
    Rangers signed INF Ed Lucas to a minor league contract.

    Advice: He'll be at spring training with the club, per an invitation attached to the contract. Very probably, the Rangers never wanted to part with Lucas, whom they claimed off waivers from the Marlins after the season. Instead, they didn't want to waste a 40-man roster spot on him. So Texas themselves waived Lucas, and, this time, he passed through the process untouched. The 32-year-old Lucas has handled six different positions over the past two seasons with the Marlins, slashing .255/.302/.323 over 163 games. He's a solid break-glass-in-case-of-emergency piece.

  • Braves designate Ramiro Pena for assignment
    Braves designated 2B Ramiro Pena for assignment.

    Advice: Pena batted .245/.304/.347 in a reserve role this past season. The 29-year-old was removed from the 40-man roster so the club could protect some young players from the upcoming Rule 5 Draft. Rotoworld.com
