  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Cubs acquire Tommy La Stella from Braves
    Cubs acquired INF Tommy La Stella and international signing bonus slot #4 from the Braves for RHP Arodys Vizcaino and Cubs international signing bonus slots #2, #3 and #4.

    Advice: The 25-year-old took over as the Braves starting second baseman midway through the 2014 season, slashing .251/.328/.317 with one homer and 31 RBI in his 93 games. He should function as a reserve infielder for the Cubs.

  • Rays could trade Sean Rodriguez
    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Sean Rodriguez "appears a trade candidate."

    Advice: The Rays would like to clear some spots on the 40-man roster, and Rodriguez is a prime candidate to be moved since he's due for another raise in arbitration. The utility player slugged 12 homers last season in just 259 plate appearances but batted just .211/.258/.443 overall. Still, there should be some interest given his versatility.

  • Five teams could be in on Stephen Drew
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Mets, Yankees, Dodgers, Athletics, and possibly the Nationals could be interested in Stephen Drew.

    Advice: The Nationals would use Drew at second base. Cafardo notes that Drew "is expected to receive a low base contract with heavy incentives." It's not a surprise after his down season at the plate in 2014, but he remains good defensively and it wouldn't be a surprise if he rebounded at the dish in 2015.

    Robinson Cano will be sidelined for the remainder of the All-Star Series game against Samurai Japan after being diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right pinkie toe.

    Advice: Cano left Saturday's contest in the eighth inning after being hit by a pitch. He's expected to need 3-4 weeks to recover and should resume full baseball activities in mid-December. He'll be fully healthy and ready to go for spring training.

  • Cano heads for precautionary X-ray on toe
    Robinson Cano is heading for a precautionary X-ray on his right pinkie toe after getting hit by a pitch during the eighth inning of Saturday's All-Star Series game against Samurai Japan.

    Advice: Cano is expected to be fine, they just want to ensure that he didn't break anything. He stated his desire to return for Game 4 on Sunday, though there's a strong likelihood that he'll be held out. The MLB squad hasn't fared well thus far in the showcase, dropping each of the first three contests, including being no-hit by four Japanese hurlers.
