  • Phillies acquire Featherston from Angels
    Phillies acquired INF Taylor Featherston from the Angels for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

    Advice: Featherston was designated for assignment last week after the Angels claimed Christian Friedrich off waivers from the Rockies. The 26-year-old stuck with the big club last season as a Rule 5 pick, but he batted just .162/.212/.247 over 169 plate appearances. Phillies general manager Matt Klentak was previously the assistant GM with the Angels, so he's clearly a fan. A strong defender, Featherston has options remaining, so he can be stashed in Triple-A.

  • Report: Ian Desmond a 'long shot' for Rays
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick writes that free agent shortstop Ian Desmond is a "long shot" for the Rays.

    Advice: There's been some chatter about the Rays being interested in Desmond, as he could be a bargain at this point of the winter, but the club doesn't want to give up a draft pick in order to sign him. There's always the chance that they could change their mind, but the 30-year-old appears likely to end up elsewhere. Many have pegged the White Sox as a logical fit for Desmond, but they are also reluctant to give up a pick. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:38 am

  • Taylor Featherston designated for assignment
    Angels designated INF Taylor Featherston for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Christian Friedrich. Featherston sported a hideous .162/.212/.247 batting line for the Halos last season after they scooped him up in the Rule 5 Draft. There's a decent chance he'll clear waivers.

  • Flores (ankle) working out at full strength
    Wilmer Flores (ankle) said Thursday he is working out at full strength.

    Advice: He also said he expects to be 100 percent for spring training. Flores suffered a non-displaced fracture of his left ankle on November 26, but the injury shouldn't hold him back when camp kicks into gear later this month. The 24-year-old is expected to be a reserve player for the Mets this year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:27 pm
