    • Martin Perez (elbow) ready around A-S break
      Rangers GM Jon Daniels expects Martin Perez (elbow) to be ready around the 2015 All-Star break.

      Advice: Daniels watched video of Perez throwing on Wednesday and noted that the left-hander was making progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. Perez had the procedure in May, and full recovery usually takes close to 15 months. He could carry some fantasy value in the second half of the 2015 season. Rotoworld.com

    • Blue Jays sign Ryan Kalish to minors deal
      Blue Jays signed OF Ryan Kalish to minor league contract with invitation to spring training.

      Advice: Kalish elected to become a free agent at the beginning of November. A month-and-a-half later he's found himself a landing spot. The outfielder is a career .245/.293/.350 hitter over 412 plate appearances at the major league level. He'll serve as organizational depth and a possible bench bat for the Blue Jays. Rotoworld.com

    • Multiple teams showing interest in Cabrera
      CBS Sports' Jon Heyman writes that the Giants, A's, Mets, Cardinals and Twins are among the teams interested in free agent infielder Asdrubal Cabrera.

      Advice: Cabrera's positional flexibility is attractive to a number of clubs. He's capable of playing second and third base in addition to his natural position at shortstop. Cabrera has experience at short and second, though less at third. Cabrera's numbers weren't spectacular last season, as he hit just .241/.307/.387 between the Indians and Nationals last season.

    • Giants re-sign Sergio Romo to two-year deal
      FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that the Giants have re-signed Sergio Romo to a two-year, $15 million deal.

      Advice: Romo had an up-and-down 2014 season, ending the year with a 3.72 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 59/12 K/BB ratio over 58 innings. While he drew interest from multiple big-market teams, he's apparently decided that he's most comfortable remaining with the reigning champs. They'll be getting him on a relatively cheap deal in comparison to other relievers this off-season. Rotoworld.com

    • Braves exploring packages for Johnson, Upton
      MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports that the Braves are looking to package Chris Johnson with Justin Upton or Evan Gattis in possible trade scenarios.

      Advice: A week ago, the Padres were a team that Bowman cited as being interested in Justin Upton. With their near-trades for Matt Kemp and Wil Myers, it appears unlikely that they would still be in the market for the outfielder. Bowman wrote that the Braves were holding court with five other teams. It would be palatable for the team if they could package Johnson or Gattis in with Upton, though it would obviously be tougher for them to complete a trade if they were attaching extra weight to the deal. The Braves are also reportedly looking to deal B.J. Upton. Rotoworld.com

    • Kipnis undergoes surgery on injured finger
      Jason Kipnis injured his left ring-finger during a workout and underwent surgery on Tuesday.

      Advice: According to beat writer Paul Hoynes, Kipnis should be ready to go for Spring Training. He had a down 2014 campaign which was marred by a nagging oblique injury. When healthy, Kipnis is one of the most dynamic infielders in the game. His 2013 season, in which he batted .284/.366/.452, is indicative of the kind of bat Kipnis has when he's right. Rotoworld.com

    • Giants continue to show interest in Shields
      Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported that the Giants were exploring a "wide-range" of pitching options, including James Shields.

      Advice: The Giants were in on Jon Lester last month and continue to search for a big-name starter to fill out their rotation. The team met with Shields last week and according to Rosenthal, continues to show interest. The Giants have also been attached to Max Scherzer, though it's reasonable to assume that Scherzer might be beyond their price range if he really is seeking a $200 million deal. Rotoworld.com

    • Longoria not currently in Rays' trade talks
      Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reported that neither Ben Zobrist nor Evan Longoria have been part of the Rays' trade discussions.

      Advice: The Rays are looking at Nationals' outfielder Steven Souza as they work to complete a trade of Wil Myers to the Padres, but for the time being, it seems that they are more likely to trade out of prospect depth than they are to trade from their stable of major league talent. Longoria is the face of the franchise and while the Rays have shown a willingness to move any talent in the right deal, it would probably take quite a bit to bid farewell to their perennial All Star.

    • Zobrist not likely to be traded to Nationals
      Joel Sherman of the New York Post hears from sources that the Nationals are not targeting INF/OF Ben Zobrist in a potential trade with the Rays.

      Advice: The Rays are showing interest in outfield prospect Steven Souza. While Zobrist would fit a positional need, Sherman reported that he had been told that the Nationals and Rays are looking at options that don't include the versatile infielder. The Rays picked up Zobrist's option in late October, but it's likely that they'll be open to moving him at some point given that he is set to hit the free agent market next winter. Rotoworld.com

    • Padres meeting to discuss Kemp physical
      USA Today's Bob Nightengale reported that the Padres are meeting to discuss the results of Matt Kemp's physical.

      Advice: This confirms a report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal. According to Nightengale, the Padres "believe that [Kemp's] physical is fine," but are "still waiting for final details." Should the trade go through, the pieces expected to head to the Dodgers are Yasmani Grandal, Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin. Eflin is then expected to be flipped to the Phillies in the Jimmy Rollins deal. In addition to the Kemp situation, the team is also in the midst of discussing a trade with the Rays for Wil Myers.

    • Angels' negotiations with Beckham stall
      The Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reported that negotiations between the Angels and INF Gordon Beckham are not currently progressing.

      Advice: Fletcher wrote that the Angels were still looking to bring back Beckham. The most obvious reason as to why negotiations have hit a snag is that Beckham is presumably looking for a guaranteed starting role in the majors. Given his .226/.271/.348 slash-line in 2014, it's probably not realistic that Beckham will have consistent starting at-bats next season. Rotoworld.com

    • Mariners acquire Justin Ruggiano from Cubs
      Mariners acquired OF Justin Ruggiano from Cubs for RHP Matt Brazis.

      Advice: Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reported that the deal was done. Ruggiano hit .281/.337/.429 over 81 games in 2014. Health will be the primary concern with Ruggiano, though, as he underwent ankle surgery near the end of the 2014 campaign. He will compete for a starting job and, if nothing else, should be a serviceable backup bat for the M's. Rotoworld.com

    • Red Sox acquire RHP Varvaro from Braves
      Red Sox acquired RHP Anthony Varvaro from the Braves for RHP Aaron Kurcz and cash considerations.

      Advice: Varvaro was designated for assignment by the Braves several days ago. He's been a solid bullpen contributor, posting a 2.99 ERA over 153 appearances in the last four seasons. In 2014, he put up a 2.63 ERA. He should serve as a quality arm and supply the Red Sox with a nice depth piece. Rotoworld.com

    • Kemp's physical could hold up trade to Padres
      Bleacher Report's Will Carroll hears that "rumors....are starting to get louder" about a possible failed physical by OF Matt Kemp.

      Advice: Kemp was all set to be traded to the Padres for Yasmani Grandal, Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin pending a physical. It's important to note that nothing is official, but the silence on the situation is curious. Kemp has suffered numerous injuries over the course of his career. When he's healthy, he's been an elite bat. Rotoworld.com

    • No timetable for Myers trade completion
      The Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin writes that there's no timetable for the completion of the Rays' trade of Wil Myers to the Padres.

      Advice: According to Topkin, "talks remain ongoing" and the deal's finalization could come "[Wednesday] or carry on to Thursday." The trade talks could take slightly longer simply because of the large number of pieces involved. ESPN's Jim Bowden reported that the players coming back to the Rays for Myers would include Jake Bauers, Joe Ross, Burch Smith and "two others." It is also being reported that one or more of these prospects could subsequently be traded to another team. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 8:55 am
    • Mariners showing interest in Cubs' Ruggiano
      Yahoo Sports' Tim Brown reports that the Cubs and Mariners had discussed a possible trade involving OF Justin Ruggiano.

      Advice: Ruggiano hit .281/.337/.429 in 81 games during the 2014 season, though he was hampered by an ankle injury that required surgery in late August. When healthy, he provides a serviceable depth bat. The Mariners have also been connected to Marlon Byrd, though the team is on Byrd's no-trade list. Rotoworld.com

    • Rays working on 'multitude of things'
      Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported that according to his sources, the Rays were working on a "multitude of thing" with "a lot of moving parts."

      Advice: The largest of this multitude would appear to be a trade of outfielder Wil Myers to the Padres, which is reportedly nearing completion. Beyond that, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick wrote that he thought it was possible that the Rays would end up trading at least one of the prospects the team received in the deal. Rosenthal didn't specify whether everything the Rays were working on hinged on Myers being dealt, or if they were also looking toward moves independent of the young slugger's movement. Rotoworld.com

    • Rays, Padres closing in on Wil Myers trade
      ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported that the Rays and Padres were "nearing the finish line" on a trade involving Wil Myers.

      Advice: No word on if there's a third team involved in the possible trade, though Crasnick tweeted that he was hearing that it was a two-team trade with the possibility of the Rays flipping a prospect later. Among the prospects who could possibly be shifting from the Padres to the Rays are the likes of Austin Hedges, Matt Wisler, Burch Smith and/or R.J. Alverez. Myers struggled in 2014, hitting just .222/.290/.320 with six home runs and 35 RBI in 87 games. Despite his struggles, the 24-year-old Myers is a unique talent who is under contractual control until 2019. Rotoworld.com

    • Harvey may be held out until home opener
      Mets manager Terry Collins told the New York Post that in order to conserve innings, Matt Harvey might not pitch until the team's first home game.

      Advice: The Mets' home opener falls on April 13th. Harvey's recovering from Tommy John surgery, having missed the 2014 season. While he's expected to be fully healthy for the 2015 campaign, the team would like to limit his innings and keeping him under wraps until the home opener would work toward that cause. It's also possible that they skip a few starts throughout the season. In 2013, Harvey struck out 191 in 178+ innings while posting a 2.27 ERA. Rotoworld.com

    • Myers to SEA, Walker to SD in 3-team deal?
      Jason Churchill of 1090 The Fan in Seattle reports that there are "strong indications" the Mariners are the third team involved in the Wil Myers trade talks.

      Advice: Churchill says that Myers could be headed to the Mariners and Taijuan Walker to the Padres in the deal, with other prospects going to the Rays. It's not clear whether he's hearing something or is just reading the tea leaves. It does make sense, as there were reports earlier in the day that the Mariners were close to trading for a hitter. Three-team deals often fall apart, but this one definitely looks to have legs. Rotoworld.com

    • Myers to Padres deal 'said to be very close'
      Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports that there is "significant optimism" a potential trade sending Wil Myers to the Padres will get done and is "very close" to being completed.

      Advice: Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reported earlier Tuesday that it's unlikely a deal would be consummated before the end of the day, but it does appear that something could be wrapped up relatively quickly. It's not clear who exactly would be involved in the deal, but players mentioned from San Diego's side include Austin Hedges, Matt Wisler, Burch Smith and R.J. Alvarez. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal first reported that the two sides were talking. Rotoworld.com

    • Padres and Rays discussing Wil Myers trade
      According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Rays and Padres are discussing a "significant trade" that would involve outfielder Wil Myers heading to San Diego.

      Advice: Rosenthal says a "number of players" would be involved in the swap, though it's "not known" if the trade is actually close to happening. Myers batted just .222/.294/.320 with six home runs and 35 RBI in 87 games this past season for Tampa Bay, but he's only 24 years old and should have a bright future. Myers is under contractual control through 2019. Rotoworld.com

    • Anthony Varvaro designated for assignment
      Braves designated RHP Anthony Varvaro for assignment.

      Advice: It's a surprise move given Varvaro's 2.99 ERA over 153 relief appearances for the Braves over the last four seasons, including a 2.63 mark last year. The right-hander will either be claimed off waivers or traded. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 3:48 pm
    • Braves to DFA reliever Anthony Varvaro
      MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports that the Braves plan to designate Anthony Varvaro for assignment when their deal with Alberto Callaspo becomes official.

      Advice: Varvaro, 30, holds a 2.99 ERA over 153 relief appearances for the Braves over the last four seasons, so he figures to draw some interest on waivers. He posted a 2.63 mark with 50 strikeouts over 54 2/3 frames last season. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Kemp to take Padres physical on Tuesday
      Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Matt Kemp will take his physical with the Padres on Tuesday.

      Advice: That means that the two sides have until then to iron out the specifics of the trade. It is believed to be Kemp and catcher Tim Federowicz heading to the Dodgers in exchange for Yasmani Grandal, Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin. What's not clear is the exact amount of money that the Dodgers will be sending to make the deal work, believed to be around $31 million. As long as Kemp passes his physical, the deal should become official on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

    • Sergio Romo signing coming soon
      Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Sergio Romo is expected to sign "hopefully in the next few days."

      Advice: Romo has drawn interest from Dodgers, Yankees and Red Sox and the Giants haven't given up hope to re-sign him. The 31-year-old lost his closer job in 2014 but still wound up having a fine year, posting a 3.72 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 59/12 K/BB ratio over 58 innings. Based on the teams with interest in him, it appears Romo is likely looking at a setup role next season. Rotoworld.com

For what it's worth, Bowman adds that he "wouldn't be shocked" to see Kemp and Upton in the same outfield next season. The Giants, Rangers, Orioles and Royals are other teams known to have interest in Upton. Rotoworld.com

    • Asdrubal Cabrera prefers to play second base
      Giants assistant GM Bobby Evans said Thursday that Asdrubal Cabrera prefers to play second base.

      Advice: San Francisco is interested in the 29-year-old free agent, but the only opening on the infield is at third base. Cabrera hasn't closed the door to moving over to the hot corner, but he has almost no experience there so this might not be a good fit. Cabrera batted .241/.307/.387 between the Indians and Nationals in 2014. Rotoworld.com

      According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Giants are considering Asdrubal Cabrera for third base.

      Advice: Cabrera has only made one appearance at third base in his eight-year major league career, and it was for 1 1/3 innings. The 29-year-old batted just .241/.307/.387 between the Indians and Nationals in 2014. He should come pretty cheap this winter. Rotoworld.com

      According to Dennis Lin and Kirk Kenney of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp has officially been traded to the Padres.

      Advice: Kemp and catcher Tim Federowicz are headed to San Diego in exchange for catcher Yasmani Grandal and pitchers Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin. The Dodgers are also sending around $31 million to the Padres to cover part of Kemp's remaining $107 million in guaranteed salaries. It's been an incredibly active 24 hours for the new-look Los Angeles front office, and there should be more activity to come. Rotoworld.com

Shields' market should begin to develop in haste now that Jon Lester has settled with the Cubs on a six-year, $155 million free agent contract.

      Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals are interested in Justin Upton and Evan Gattis of the Braves.

      ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Dodgers, Yankees, and Red Sox all have interest in free agent reliever Sergio Romo.

      Advice: And the Giants are also interested in bringing him back. Romo struggled in the early part of 2014 before losing his grip on the closer role, but he pitched well down the stretch and should be able to find a multi-year deal, especially with these teams involved. Relievers are doing very well in free agency right now. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Romo was also talking with the Astros, but he'll have to look elsewhere now that the club has reportedly signed both Luke Gregerson and Pat Neshek. With the money being thrown around to relievers, the 31-year-old should do well for himself in free agency, even though his ERA has increased in each of the past three seasons. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Rays getting calls about Wil Myers
      Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays have received calls from "about a half-dozen teams" regarding the availability of Wil Myers.

      Advice: The Rays seem more likely to deal Matt Joyce this offseason, but Myers could fetch a huge return if he's made available. Still, he's just 24 years old and is under team control through 2019. While he's coming off a disappointing season, we suspect he'll stay put. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: The Astros missed out on both Andrew Miller and David Robertson, but they remain intent on signing at least one reliever. Landing in Houston would be good for the fantasy prospects of either Romo or Gregerson, as they'd both likely be the first option to close. Gregerson will reportedly get at least a three-year deal.

      Advice: "I would not characterize it that way," Zaidi said. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported earlier Tuesday that a deal sending Kemp to the Padres for Yasmani Grandal and others was "getting closer," but Zaidi obviously doesn't see it that way.

      USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Giants are discussing a trade with the Braves involving Justin Upton and Chris Johnson.

      Advice: Nightengale cautions, however, that "neither club was overly optimistic a deal can be finalized." The deal is a fit for the Giants since they have a hole both in left field and at third base, but Nightengale says the Braves aren't sure the Giants have the prospects needed to make a trade work. Upton has drawn trade interest from a host of clubs this offseason. Rotoworld.com

    • TOR, CLE, MIL, CHC on Upton's no-trade list
      CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Blue Jays, Indians, Brewers, and Cubs are on Justin Upton's no-trade list.

      Advice: Players often include certain teams on their no-trade list as leverage, but it's worth noting that the Mariners were listed two years ago and Upton exercised his right to turn down a potential deal. The Indians have reportedly expressed interest in a trade for Upton this offseason, so it's something to keep in mind. Rotoworld.com

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported earlier Tuesday afternoon that the two sides are "working hard" on a deal and are "getting closer."

      Advice: Wisler had been suggested as a possible accompaniment to catcher Yasmani Grandal, whom the Dodgers are known to covet. But the San Diego front office is not willing to meet that demand.

      Advice: MLB.com's Mark Bowman earlier Monday listed the O's as one of the teams showing interest in Upton, but Duquette just threw a wet blanket on the idea. The O's are in the market for outfield help and could come away with someone before the end of the Winter Meetings, but it doesn't sound like it will be Upton. Rotoworld.com

    • Mariners still interested in dealing for Kemp
      According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Mariners are still looking at free agent outfielder Matt Kemp.

      Advice: The M's are believed to be the front runners to sign Melky Cabrera, but the Mariners are continuing to keep their options open. They have also expressed interest in acquiring Justin Upton from the Braves, though they would assuredly need to part with one of their prized young arms to make that deal work. Rotoworld.com

    • Halos could go after Shields or Scherzer
      CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Angels could make a run at James Shields or Max Scherzer if they're able to trade C.J. Wilson.

      Advice: Heyman says Wilson has "seemed to lose favor from some quarters of the organization," which could lead to him being dealt and the Halos then signing a rotation upgrade. Scherzer is undoubtedly going to be more expensive, though there's a good chance Shields could also require a contract in excess of $100 million. Rotoworld.com
