    Yankees activated RHP Ivan Nova from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The 27-year-old right-hander was hit extremely hard over his first four starts of the 2014 campaign and was then forced to undergo Tommy John surgery.

  • Cardinals activate Jaime Garcia from DL
    Cardinals activated LHP Jaime Garcia from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The veteran southpaw underwent surgery in July to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in his left shoulder. He remains optimistic that he'll be ready to compete for a rotation spot in spring training, but after hurling just 99 total innings the last two seasons, he's very difficult to count on.

  • Colby Lewis to test out free agency
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Friday that Colby Lewis will test out the free agent market after the two sides were unable to reach a deal.

    Advice: Daniels isn't shutting the door on re-signing Lewis, but the right-hander will now be free to talk to other clubs. Lewis held a 5.18 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 170 1/3 innings this season but pitched pretty well in the second half, posting a 3.86 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Harvey activated from 60-day DL
    Mets activated RHP Matt Harvey from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Harvey, of course, missed the 2014 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He should be ready to roll at the beginning of spring training before breaking camp as a part of the Mets' rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Dana Eveland outrighted to Triple-A
    Mets sent LHP Dana Eveland outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Eveland pitched well when healthy this season, posting a 2.63 ERA and 27/6 K/BB ratio over 27 1/3 innings. He dealt with elbow issues for much of the second half, though, before eventually being shut down. Rotoworld.com

    Blue Jays signed LHP Jeff Francis to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

  • Tigers extend qualifying offer to Scherzer
    Tigers extended a one-year qualifying offer to Max Scherzer.

    Advice: The offer is worth $15.3 million, but Scherzer will obviously decline it. His gamble in turning down the Tigers' $144 million extension offer last spring worked out, as he's now in position to get more than that on the open market. Rotoworld.com

  • Taylor Jordan removed from 60-day DL
    Nationals activated RHP Taylor Jordan from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Jordan missed the last few months of the season before eventually having surgery in September to remove bone chips from his right elbow. He'll be fine for spring training but will likely begin the season at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Josh Johnson to test out free agency
    Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Josh Johnson will test out free agency rather than re-sign with the Padres during their exclusive negotiating window.

    Advice: Both sides are interested in working out a new deal, with Johnson saying he feels he has "unfinished business" with the Padres after missing the season following Tommy John surgery. However, it appears that, not surprisingly, the right-hander will give other teams a chance at him before committing to the Padres again. Rotoworld.com

  • Matsuzaka to get big offer to return to Japan
    Sports Hochi reports that the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks plan to offer Daisuke Matsuzaka a four-year contract worth about $3.58 million per season.

    Advice: He'd be crazy to turn that kind of money down, as Matsuzaka would have to take a minor league deal from a major league club. The right-hander has said previously that he'd be open to returning to Japan if they give him a chance to start. It would be shocking if Matsuzaka turns the offer down. Rotoworld.com

    Twins activated RHP Mike Pelfrey from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Pelfrey missed most of the season after having surgery to relieve pressure on the ulnar nerve in his throwing elbow. He's expected to be fine for spring training and should have a spot at the back-end of the Twins' rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • A.J. Griffin activated from 60-day DL
    Athletics activated RHP A.J. Griffin from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Griffin missed the 2014 season after having Tommy John surgery in late April. He's probably going to be sidelined until around midseason next year. Rotoworld.com

  • Jarrod Parker activated from 60-day DL
    Athletics activated RHP Jarrod Parker from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Parker, of course, missed the season due to a second Tommy John surgery. He seems likely to get a late start to the 2015 campaign. Rotoworld.com

  • Gavin Floyd activated from 60-day DL
    Braves activated RHP Gavin Floyd from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Floyd pitched pretty well after returning from Tommy John surgery but unfortunately saw his season cut short due to surgery in June to repair a fractured olecranon in his right elbow. He'll be a free agent this offseason and is expected to be healthy for spring training. Rotoworld.com

  • Homer Bailey activated from 60-day DL
    Reds activated RHP Homer Bailey from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The first year of Bailey's six-year, $105 million contract didn't go well, as he posted a disappointing 3.71 ERA before having surgery last month to repair a tear in his flexor tendon. The right-hander expects to be ready for the start of the 2015 campaign. Rotoworld.com

  • Josh Beckett activated from 60-day DL
    Dodgers activated RHP Josh Beckett from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Beckett announced earlier this month that he planned to retire, though he's yet to officially file retirement papers. He will undergo surgery next May to repair a torn labrum in his left hip. Rotoworld.com

  • Padres decline Johnson's $4 million option
    Padres decline RHP Josh Johnson's $4 million option for 2015.

    Advice: Johnson, of course, missed the 2014 campaign following Tommy John surgery and could get a late start to next season. However, he and the Padres are both interested in working out a smaller, likely incentive-laden deal. The right-hander has ample upside when healthy, which isn't terribly often. Rotoworld.com

  • Rangers make 'opening offer' to Colby Lewis
    MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers have made an "opening offer" to free agent Colby Lewis.

    Advice: Something should get done before the exclusive negotiating window closes on Monday. Lewis had a rough 5.18 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 170 1/3 innings this season and missed the entire 2013 campaign due to hip surgery, so it's not like he'll be commanding big bucks. The right-hander turned 35 years old in August. Rotoworld.com

  • Danny Duffy hampered by rib cage injury
    Royals manager Ned Yost acknowledged after the World Series that Danny Duffy was held out of the postseason rotation because of a stress reaction in his rib cage.

    Advice: The injury didn't bother Duffy in short relief stints, but the pain would catch up to him if he went more than two or three innings. Duffy wound up making three relief appearances during Kansas City's deep postseason run, allowing two runs in 4 2/3 innings. He'll be a big part of the club's starting rotation in 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Taylor Jordan undergoes elbow surgery
    Taylor Jordan underwent surgery last month to remove bone chips from his right elbow.

    Advice: Jordan missed the last few months of the season with elbow issues, so it's no surprise that an operation was needed. The good news is that he's expected to be fine for spring training. He'll likely begin 2015 in the Triple-A rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Sabathia (knee) nearly 100 percent
    CC Sabathia (knee) is throwing twice a week and he feels "pretty much back to 100 percent."

    Advice: Sabathia had season-ending arthroscopic debridement surgery on his right knee in July as well as a bone spur removed. He began throwing off flat-ground in September. The original plan called for him to throw off a mound before Thanksgiving, but now he plans to wait until spring training. "Now that I know I feel pretty good, I don’t think there’s any reason for me to crank it up (until February)," said Sabathia. After being limited to just eight starts this season, the 34-year-old southpaw is owed $48 million from 2015-2016 while his contract includes a $25 million vesting option or $5 million buyout for 2017.
