  • 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. Today, 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. Friday, 10:50 am

  • 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. Thursday, 2:27 pm
  • Jean Segura to see time at both SS and 2B
    Diamondbacks GM Dave Stewart said Jean Segura will compete for time at both shortstop and second base but will likely see most of his reps at shortstop during spring training.

    Advice: All 472 of Segura's major-league appearances have come at shortstop. With the way he's played recently, Segura might not be much of an upgrade over Nick Ahmed. In fact, Ahmed is a much better defensive player than Segura. Second baseman Chris Owings logged a career-high 515 at-bats last season but wasn't much help offensively (.227, 4 HR, 43 RBI). Regardless of where he's playing, Segura should find his way into the lineup most days. Jan 30, 5:04 pm
  • Stearns: Trade won't change Arcia's timetable
    Brewers GM David Stearns said Saturday's trade with the Diamondbacks won't change Orlando Arcia's timetable for arriving in the major leagues.

    Advice: The Brewers dealt their starting shortstop Jean Segura to Arizona on Saturday, essentially clearing Arcia's path to the major leagues. However, Stearns insists the 21-year-old will begin the year with Triple-A Colorado Springs. Arcia dominated at Double-A Biloxi last season, hitting .307 with 25 stolen bases. We'd expect Arcia to make his big-league debut sometime in May or June. Jan 30, 4:11 pm
  • Report: D'Backs land Segura in five-player swap
    ESPN's Keith Law reports the Diamondbacks have acquired SS Jean Segura and RHP Tyler Wagner from the Brewers for 2B Aaron Hill, RHP Chase Anderson and SS Isan Diaz.

    Advice: The Brewers will also get cash to cover part of Hill's $12 million salary. Segura has struggled mightily since his breakout year in 2013 and could probably use a change of scenery. Jonathan Villar will take over at shortstop but it shouldn't be long until top prospect Orlando Arcia makes his much anticipated big-league debut. Jan 30, 3:42 pm
  • Hernandez almost done with throwing program
    Enrique Hernandez (shoulder) said he still has a few weeks left in his throwing program but should be ready for the start of spring training.

    Advice: Hernandez has made solid progress in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery. He said he's been able to hit all winter. The Dodgers used Hernandez as a utility player last year and he should occupy the same role in 2016. Jan 30, 1:43 pm
