  • 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

  • D'backs deal Bolsinger to Dodgers for cash
    Dodgers acquired RHP Mike Bolsinger from the Diamondbacks for cash considerations.

    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

  • Phillies sign Chris Nelson to minors deal
    Phillies signed INF Chris Nelson to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 29-year-old utility man appeared in 27 games for the Padres during the 2014 season, slashing .233/.296/.274 with seven RBI in 73 at-bats. His versatility should allow him to compete for a reserve role with the Phillies. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies sign Jose Ortega to minor league deal
    Rockies signed RHP Jose Ortega to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 26-year-old hurler was bombed in his only appearance with the Tigers during the 2014 season, but posted a somewhat respectable 3.57 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 48/36 K/BB ratio over 58 frames at Triple-A Toledo. He'll provide bullpen depth in the minors for the Rockies. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies sign Justin Miller to minors contract
    Rockies signed RHP Justin Miller to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 27-year-old hurler cracked the big leagues for the first time in 2014, posting a 5.11 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 5/2 K/BB ratio over 12 1/3 innings with the Tigers. He'll function as organizational bullpen depth in Colorado. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies sign Brett Marshall to minors deal
    Rockies signed RHP Brett Marshall to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 24-year-old right-hander was abysmal at Triple-A Louisville during the 2014 season, posting a 1-10 record, 6.53 ERA, 1.82 WHIP and 59/51 K/BB ratio over 70 1/3 innings. He's nothing more than organizational depth at this point. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies sign John Lannan to minors contract
    Rockies signed LHP John Lannan to a minor league contract.

    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

  • Phillies sign Paul Clemens to minors contract

    Advice: The 26-year-old right-hander appeared in 13 games out of the Astros bullpen in 2014, registering a 5.84 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 16/13 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings. With his ability to start and pitch in relief, he'll provide valuable organizational depth for the Phillies. Rotoworld.com

  • Diamondbacks ink Caleb Clay to minors pact
    Diamondbacks signed RHP Caleb Clay to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 26-year-old right-hander joined the Angels organization midway through the 2014 season after pitching the first half of the year in the Korean Baseball Organization. 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

  • Phillies re-sign Koyie Hill to minors deal
    Phillies re-signed C Koyie Hill to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 35-year-old backstop saw limited time with the Phillies during the 2014 season, slashing .238/.273/.286 in 21 at-bats over 10 games. He'll continue to provide catching depth and a valuable veteran presence in the minor leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves release southpaw Jonny Venters
    Braves released LHP Jonny Venters.

    Advice: The 29-year-old hurler is expected to miss the entire 2015 season as he continues to recover from a third Tommy John surgery. Once healthy, he should be able to find an opportunity elsewhere on a minor league pact. Rotoworld.com

  • Red Sox believed to be leader for Sandoval
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox are believed to be the leader in the race to sign free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval.

    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

  • Padres preparing to make offer to Sandoval
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Padres will make a contract off to Pablo Sandoval on Friday.

    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

  • Diamondbacks designate Brewer for assignment
    Diamondbacks designated RHP Charles Brewer for assignment.

    Advice: Brewer had a brief stay in the majors with Arizona in 2014. He pitched in four games and allowed two runs over six innings. He'll try to latch on as bullpen depth elsewhere. Rotoworld.com

    Diamondbacks designated RHP Mike Bolsinger for assignment.

  • 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

    Braves designated LHP Jonny Venters for assignment.

    Advice: Two Tommy John surgeries have kept Venters from pitching in the majors since 2012. The southpaw is expected to miss the 2015 season as well, and the Braves decided their 40-man roster spot could be better used. Rotoworld.com

  • Pablo Sandoval will get at least five years
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Pablo Sandoval "will get at least a five-year deal, if not six or seven."

    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: The particulars of the offer aren't known, but ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported Tuesday that Sandoval has discussed deal both with the Red Sox and Giants in the five-year, $80-90 million range. Crasnick has also said that "things could come together quickly" with Sandoval, so it appears Panda will make a decision soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Red Sox, Sandoval have second meeting Tuesday
    Pablo Sandoval and the Red Sox met for a second time Tuesday evening, according to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish.

    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

  • Pablo Sandoval's price range $80-90 million
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Pablo Sandoval has discussed deals in the five-year, $80-90 million price range with the Giants and Red Sox.

    Advice: Crasnick adds that "things could come together quickly" with Sandoval and that the Red Sox are a "very serious player." The feeling for a while now has been that Kung Fu Panda was likely to either re-sign with San Francisco or head east to Boston. It appears that a decision could come before Thanksgiving.

  • Sandoval lands in Boston
    Pablo Sandoval landed in Boston to meet with the Red Sox on Monday.

    Advice: This was one of Sandoval's scheduled meetings, so there's nothing imminent here as of yet. It is widely believed that Sandoval will either sign with the Red Sox or return to the Giants. Other teams in the mix include the White Sox and Blue Jays. Sandoval is reportedly in the market for a deal around five years, $100 million. Rotoworld.com

  • Re-signing Robertson a top priority for Yanks
    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
