  • Indians acquire RHP Brewer from Diamondbacks
    Indians acquired RHP Charles Brewer from the Indians for cash considerations.

    Advice: The Diamondbacks had designated Brewer for assignment on Thursday. The right-hander had a cup of coffee with the club in 2013, but he spent all of this past season in the minors. The 26-year-old will be pitching depth for the Indians. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Astros interested in David Robertson
    Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports the Astros have contacted the agent for David Robertson to express their interest in the free agent closer.

    Advice: MLB.com's Brian McTaggart previously reported the Astros were aggressively seeking a top closer, so it makes sense that they would be interested in Robertson. The 29-year-old is said to be looking for a contract along the lines of what Jonathan Papelbon got from the Phillies, so if the Astros are willing to pony up the two could be a match. A return to the Yankees is also a strong possibility, and as many as a half-dozen teams have reached out to express their interest in the right-hander. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The D'backs had previously designated Bolsinger for assignment. In Bolsinger, the Dodgers are getting a 26-year-old right-hander who had a 5.50 ERA in 52 1/3 innings this past season. Bolsinger may start or pitch in relief for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com

  • Cisnero signs minor league contract with Reds
    Reds signed RHP Jose Cisnero to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Cisnero was outrighted off the Astros' 40-man roster earlier this month. Cisnero, 25, had Tommy John surgery in May, so he won't be ready by the time spring rolls around. Rotoworld.com

  • Padres have made highest offer to Sandoval
    John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle hears the Padres' offer to Pablo Sandoval is the highest the free agent has received thus far.

    Advice: The Padres were believed to have made the offer Friday. Shea also said he believes that despite the large offer, Sandoval is still leaning toward signing with the Red Sox. The Giants have been asked to make their best offer to the third baseman recently as well, suggesting things may be moving toward a conclusion. Multiple sources say a decision is expected within the next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Blue Jays no longer in mix for Sandoval
    Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports that the Blue Jays are no longer believed to be in the mix for free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval.

    Advice: While the Jays had initial interest, there has been no communication between them and Sandoval's agent in the past 48 hours. The Red Sox, Giants and Padres are believed to have offers on the table to the hulking third baseman, with a five-year, $95 million deal from the Red Sox reportedly the leader in the clubhouse at the moment. A resolution to this situation is expected in the coming days, but it looks like the Jays won't be the winner in this sweepstakes. Rotoworld.com

    Giants signed INF Carlos Triunfel to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The slick-fielding 24-year-old owns a horrifying .160/.188/.235 slash line over 81 career at-bats in the big leagues. He'll look to compete for a reserve infielder role with the Giants. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The 30-year-old southpaw posted a 6.75 ERA over 56 innings of work at Triple-A Las Vegas in 2014. Given the Rockies struggles both in the rotation and the bullpen, it would be surprising to see him not get a shot at some point during the 2015 season. Rotoworld.com

He posted a 5.09 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 45/17 K/BB ratio over 76 frames at Triple-A Salt Lake. He'll function as organizational rotation depth for the D'Backs. Rotoworld.com

The 29-year-old struggled mightily in his 25 games with the Mets in 2014, slashing a mere .086/.143/.399 with a 14/6 K/BB ratio in 35 at-bats.

He was terrific at Triple-A Sacramento, compiling a 2.84 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 45/17 K/BB ratio over 44 1/3 innings. He'll have a strong chance of cracking the White Sox bullpen on Opening Day.

    Advice: The Red Sox already have an offer on the table, which is believed to be for five years and $95 million. The Giants and Padres reportedly also have offers in on the Kung Fu Panda. Cafardo notes that the Red Sox would like a decision soon though, so Sandoval could be donning a new jersey in the coming days. Rotoworld.com

    The Rays have narrowed down their managerial search to three finalists: Kevin Cash, Raul Ibanez and Don Wakamatsu.

  • 'Increasingly likely' Miller gets four years
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that it's "increasingly likely" Andrew Miller will get a four-year contract.

    Advice: Morosi says that Miller "already has multiple offers of at least three years," so it appears a team might have to guarantee a fourth year to push them over the top. He also notes that Miller is expected to eclipse the previous high-water mark for a reliever with no closing experience, which currently sits at $6 million per season. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported last week that Miller was receiving interest from 22 teams. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: No word yet on what the terms might be, but it will have to at least be $90+ million in order to be competitive with what the Red Sox and Giants are reportedly willing to spend. It was Rosenthal who reported earlier Friday that new Padres GM A.J. Preller has been "working feverishly" and prepared to go in a variety of directions this offseason. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Avery spent all of the 2014 season at Triple-A with the Mariners, batting .275/.344/.413 with 10 homers and 31 steals. He lands in a good spot, as the Tigers' center field job is in flux, but ultimately he's unlikely to get much of an opportunity at the big league level in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: However, he adds that there's "nothing imminent" in terms of Ross signing on somewhere. The veteran catcher batted just .184/.260/.368 in 50 games this past season, but his bat has been more potent in the past and he's well-regarded as a receiver and clubhouse guy. Rotoworld.com

    Dodgers acquired RHP Joel Peralta and LHP Adam Liberatore from the Rays in exchange for RHPs Jose Dominguez and Greg Harris.

    Advice: The Rays exercised Peralta's $2.5 million option for 2015 earlier this month (he has $2.5 million club options for 2016 and 2017, as well) but have now decided to deal him for a bit of payroll space. The 38-year-old put up a 3.58 ERA and 293/84 K/BB ratio over 269 1/3 frames the last four years for the Rays and will work in a setup role for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com

  • Cafardo: Jays expected to bid for Sandoval
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe said the Blue Jays are expected to make an offer to free agent Pablo Sandoval by Thursday.

    Advice: To this point the heavy interest in Sandoval has been limited to the Giants and Red Sox, so it will be interesting to see what the emergence of the Jays does to the process. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal notes that the Jays have a strict policy that limits them to a maximum of five years on free agent deals, meaning the club could be forced to overpay for Sandoval's services. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports said Sandoval will get at least five years from whichever team he signs with. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported Tuesday that Sandoval had been discussing deals in the five-year, $80-90 million range, but Heyman says he's holding out for a nine-figure deal and it sounds like he might get it. Sandoval is on his way to San Francisco after finishing his visit with the Red Sox, who are expected to make an offer by Thursday. He'll likely wind up choosing between those two teams, though Heyman doesn't discount the possibility of others getting involved. He mentions the Marlins as a potential dark horse but says there's no word whether they've had contact with Sandoval's camp. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: It's unclear what the nature of the second meeting is, but ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported earlier Tuesday that "things could come together quickly" and the Red Sox are a "very serious player." A second meeting in one day would seem to corroborate that idea. Sandoval's suitors are down to the Giants and the Red Sox, so a decision one way or the other could come soon. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Blair was told this by a source from a team that's competing with the Jays and others for Miller's services. Miller would likely close with Toronto with Casey Janssen expected to depart as a free agent.

    Bill Madden of the New York Daily News says re-signing David Robertson is Yankees general manager Brian Cashman's "absolute top priority."

    Advice: The Yankees extended Robertson a $15.3 million qualifying offer, and it was previously reported that the two sides met on Tuesday. That qualifying offer and the fact that Robertson is said to be looking for "Papelbon money" may help facilitate a return to the Yanks. At least a half-dozen clubs have expressed interest in the 29-year-old, according to Madden's NYDN cohort Mark Feinsand. Rotoworld.com

    According to Jon Heyman on Twitter, 22 teams have shown interest in relief pitcher Andrew Miller.

    Advice: Heyman noted that the "rumored Cubs" probably won't be the ones to sign him, as "[they] are only looking to lengthen their pen." Miller is one of the top relief arms on the market and the 29-year-old is reportedly looking for somewhere in the ballpark of a four-year deal. Since turning fully over to reliever, Miller has a 2.57 ERA and a 14.6 K/9. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Andrew Miller seeking four-year deal
    According to Jason Mastrodonato of MassLive.com, free agent reliever Andrew Miller is "seeking at least a four-year deal."

    Advice: Mastrodonato also quoted his industry source as saying the average annual value (AAV) of a deal shorter than four years would need to be "astounding" for him to consider it. A four-year deal would be largely unprecedented for a non-closer, even one with Miller's pedigree. The 29-year-old lefty has a 2.57 ERA and 14.6 K/9 since converting to relief full-time in 2012. A huge group of teams, including the Red Sox, are reportedly interested in acquiring Miller's services. Rotoworld.com

Miller seems to be drawing interest from just about every front office in baseball after posting a terrific 2.02 ERA and 103/17 K/BB ratio in 62 1/3 innings this past season between Boston and Baltimore. Some clubs are said to be viewing him as an option at closer. Rotoworld.com

  • Yanks met with Roberston's agent Tue.
    Dan Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal reports that Yankees general manager Brian Cashman met with David Robertson's agent, Scott Leventhal, on Tuesday.

    Advice: Robertson turned down a one-year, $15.3 million qualifying offer from the Yankees on Monday in hopes of landing a big contract in free agency. Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York reports that he's looking for "Papelbon money," so likely something in the range of four years and $50 million. The market for him could be challenging since he's attached to draft pick compensation, so a return to the Yankees can't be ruled out. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: In other words, he's aiming for the richest contract ever for a reliever. Jonathan Papelbon set the record when he signed a four-year, $50 million contract with the Phillies in 2011. Robertson turns 30 in April and owns a 2.20 ERA over the past four seasons, so he has a strong case for a big contract, but his market could take a hit because he's attached to draft pick compensation.

  • Miller's agent says his client could close
    Andrew Miller's agent, Mark Rodgers, told Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com that his client is drawing interest from teams in need of a closer.

    Advice: "I think Andrew's evolution in the bullpen and his numbers this year fortify the belief in baseball that he's a closer-in-waiting -- and maybe the time for waiting is over," said Rogers. While Rogers didn't mention who could be in the mix for his client, the Yankees, Red Sox, and Dodgers are among the teams in the market for late-inning help. Rogers didn't rule out the possibility that Miller could sign somewhere as a set-up man or a Plan B for an established closer. Of course, the money will likely dictate where he will go. Miller, 29, had an outstanding 2.02 ERA with a 103/17 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings this past season between the Red Sox and Orioles. Rotoworld.com
