  • Indians pick up Mike Aviles' 2015 option
    Indians exercised INF Mike Aviles' $3.5 million option for 2015.

    Advice: It was reported a week ago that they planned to pick it up, and now it's official. Aviles hit just .247/.273/.343 this season, but he offers plenty of value with his ability to play all over the diamond. Rotoworld.com

  • Yanks interested in Ibanez has hitting coach
    Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News reports that the Yankees are interested in talking to Raul Ibanez about their vacant hitting coach job.

    Advice: Ibanez hasn't said he's definitely retiring, but he's 42 and coming off a terrible season. Even if he does officially hang it up, it's not clear whether he'd be interested in a coaching job, though it wouldn't be a surprise. Ibanez played for the Yankees in 2012. Rotoworld.com

  • Brewers decline Rickie Weeks' 2015 option
    Brewers declined 2B Rickie Weeks' $14.5 million option for 2015.

    Advice: It's no surprise, of course, after Weeks lost his second base job to Scooter Gennett this season. He hit well in a part-time role, batting .274/.357/.452 with eight homers over 286 plate appearances. He's injury-prone and the big upside isn't there anymore, but Weeks is probably intriguing enough to land a starting job somewhere this winter. 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

  • Kyle Blanks removed from 60-day DL
    Athletics activated 1B/OF Kyle Blanks from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The injury-prone 28-year-old was limited to 26 games this season due to tendinitis in his left Achilles, an issue that also bothered him in 2013. He hit .309/.409/.436 when healthy, but Blanks still might be non-tendered this offseason in his final year of arbitration eligibility. Rotoworld.com

  • Indians expected to exercise option on Aviles
    The Indians are expected to exercise their 2015 option on Mike Aviles.

    Advice: Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said a few weeks ago that he was undecided on Aviles and his $3.5 million option, but Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the team is leaning toward bringing him back. Aviles hit just .247/.273/.343 last season but appeared at six different positions and offers a veteran presence. The Indians don't officially have to make a decision on the 33-year-old until three days after the end of the World Series. Rotoworld.com
