  • Athletics reunited with Jed Lowrie in trade
    Athletics acquired INF Jed Lowrie from the Astros for RHP Brendan McCurry.

    Advice: Lowrie signed a three-year contract with the Astros last winter, but he's headed back to Oakland after just one season. The 31-year-old got off to a great start in 2015 before suffering a thumb injury in late April and just couldn't get back on track with the bat after returning during the second half. It's unclear what the Athletics have in mind for him, but he's likely to receive regular playing time in 2016. Wednesday, 8:51 am

  • Report: A's acquire Jed Lowrie from Astros
    Jane Lee of reports that the Athletics have acquired Jed Lowrie from the Astros.

    Advice: No word yet on who is headed back to Houston. Lowrie, who previously played with the Athletics from 2013-2014, batted .222 with nine home runs and a .712 OPS in 69 games this past season. He's owed $7.5 million in 2016 and $6.5 million in 2017 while his contract includes a $6 million club option or $1 million buyout for 2018. He's yet another moving part for Oakland's infield.

  • Braves sign Tuiasosopo to minor league deal
    Braves signed OF Matt Tuiasosopo to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Tuiasosopo, 29, spent the 2015 season with the Triple-A affiliate for the White Sox while batting .230/.344/.447 with 18 home runs and 52 RBI over 103 games. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2013 as a member of the Tigers, but with the Braves in tear-down mode, anything is possible. Tuesday, 11:12 am

  • Braves sign Brignac to minor league deal
    Braves signed INF Reid Brignac to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Brignac, who turns 30 in January, appeared in 17 games with the Marlins this past season and owns a lowly .219/.266/.310 batting line in the majors. He's simply organizational fodder at this point. Tuesday, 11:08 am

  • Steve Tolleson catches on with Orioles
    Orioles signed INF Steve Tolleson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Tolleson is a career .245/.299/.372 hitter over parts of four big league seasons but offers plenty of defensive versatility. He played in 29 games with the Orioles in 2012. Monday, 3:02 pm

  • D'Backs sign Carlos Rivero to minors deal
    Diamondbacks signed INF Carlos Rivero to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Rivero hit just .254/.299/.355 at Triple-A in 2015. He has flashed some pop against left-handers, but this is nothing more than an organizational depth move for Arizona. Monday, 1:04 pm

  • Blue Jays sign David Adams to minors deal
    Blue Jays signed INF David Adams to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Adams slashed .294/.399/.391 this summer at Triple-A while appearing defensively at first base, second base, and third. The 28-year-old has been tearing it up in the Venezuelan Winter League, but it'll be a surprise if he is on the Jays' Opening Day roster next spring. Monday, 8:13 am

  • Dodgers ink Culberson to minor league deal
    Dodgers signed INF Charlie Culberson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: A bulging disc injury sidelined Culberson for most of the 2015 campaign. The 27-year-old utility man has hit .221 with five homers and 37 RBI in parts of three seasons with the Giants and Rockies. Saturday, 2:43 pm

  • Red Sox designate Rutledge for assignment
    Red Sox designated 2B Josh Rutledge for assignment.

    Advice: Rutledge saw 74 at-bats with the Red Sox in 2015. The 26-year-old infielder worked his way to a .284/.333/.338 triple-slash with a homer and 10 RBI during his stay with the big club. He initially came over to Boston as part of the club's trade of Shane Victorino to the Angels. Friday, 2:32 pm

  • Brewers acquire Jonathan Villar from Houston
    Brewers acquired INF Jonathan Villar from the Astros for RHP Cy Sneed.

    Advice: Villar posted a decent .284/.339/.414 batting line with two homers and seven stolen bases in 53 games this past season for Houston. He carries some fantasy value as a base-stealer when he is getting regular playing time, and Milwaukee is a better place than Houston for him to find that. The versatile 24-year-old is looking like an attractive early fantasy sleeper for 2016. Thursday, 12:30 pm

  • Jose Ramirez suffered swollen ankle in D.R.
    Jose Ramirez suffered a swollen ankle Wednesday night in the Dominican Winter League.

    Advice: Ramirez got upended at second base while trying to turn a doubleplay, but he came out of the collision with only a minor tweak. The 23-year-old is trying improve his offensive game in the Dominican after batting just .219/.291/.340 in 355 plate appearances this past season for the Tribe. Thursday, 7:25 am

  • Mets might decide to non-tender SS Tejada
    Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets might non-tender Ruben Tejada.

    Advice: Salary appears to be the main issue, as Tejada could make north of $3 million via arbitration this winter. In 360 regular season at-bats with the Mets in 2015, he hit .261/.338/.350. The 26-year-old shortstop infamously suffered a broken right leg on a late Chase Utley slide into second base during Game 2 of the NLDS against the Dodgers. Wednesday, 6:06 pm
