  • David Hernandez activated from 60-day DL
    Diamondbacks activated RHP David Hernandez from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Hernandez began a throwing program last month after April's Tommy John surgery. He should be ready to roll for the start of next season and will be an integral part of the Arizona bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • Bronson Arroyo activated from 60-day DL
    Diamondbacks activated RHP Bronson Arroyo from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Arroyo, of course, missed the last few months of the season following Tommy John surgery. He's shooting to be ready for Opening Day, but most likely it will be later than that when he rejoins the Arizona rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Orioles decline Nick Hundley's option
    Orioles declined C Nick Hundley's $5 million option for 2015.

    Advice: With Matt Wieters coming back and Caleb Joseph around as a cheaper backup, the O's don't need Hundley. The veteran backstop will likely have to settle for a backup job this winter. Rotoworld.com

  • Orioles pick up Wei-Yin Chen's 2015 option
    Orioles exercised LHP Wei-Yin Chen's $4.75 million option for 2015.

    Advice: It's a no-brainer. Chen has put up a 3.86 ERA and 1.27 WHIP across 86 starts over the last three seasons for the Orioles, proving to be a bargain after coming over from Japan. He'll be a big part of the Baltimore rotation again next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Haren exercises $10M player option for '15
    Dan Haren has exercised his $10 million player option for 2015.

    Advice: The option already vested after Haren crossed the 180-inning threshold in late-September, but he still had to make a decision about whether to exercise it or test free agency. The veteran right-hander ultimately decided to stick around for another year. Haren had arthroscopic surgery on his left (non-throwing) shoulder earlier this month, but he should be fully-healed by spring training. Rotoworld.com

  • MRI on Profar's shoulder 95 pct. clean
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Thursday that an MRI on Jurickson Profar (shoulder) was "95 percent clean."

    Advice: Good news for Profar, who missed the entire 2014 season due to a right shoulder injury. The Rangers shut the 21-year-old infielder down in September after he suffered multiple setbacks, but Daniels hopes that he'll be cleared in January. Still, he remains a big question going into 2015.

  • Red Sox re-sign Uehara to two-year deal
    Red Sox re-signed RHP Koji Uehara to a two-year, $18 million contract.

    Advice: The Red Sox weren't expected to make Uehara a one-year, $15.3 million qualifying offer, but they didn't want him to hit the open market either. It's a fair compromise under the circumstances. Uehara faded down the stretch this season, but still ended up with 26 saves to go along with a 2.52 ERA and 80/8 K/BB ratio over 64 1/3 innings. He'll turn 40 next April. Rotoworld.com

  • Cubs decline option on RHP Fujikawa
    Cubs declined RHP Kyuji Fujikawa's $5.5 million club option for 2015.

    Advice: The Cubs will pay a $500,000 buyout to turn the page. Because of Tommy John surgery, Fujikawa ended up making just 27 appearances during his two seasons with Chicago. Rotoworld.com

  • M's pick up 2015 option on RHP Iwakuma
    Mariners exercised RHP Hisashi Iwakuma's $7 million club option for 2015.

    Advice: Previous reports indicated the option vested based on performance bonuses, but it's an easy call either way. Iwakuma posted a quality 3.52 ERA and 154/21 K/BB ratio over 179 innings this past season. He remains part of a potent one-two punch in Seattle with King Felix. Rotoworld.com

  • Angels decline option on LHP Burnett
    Angels declined LHP Sean Burnett's $4.5 million club option for 2015.

    Advice: He'll receive a $500,000 buyout and become a free agent. Burnett had Tommy John surgery in June and will likely be sidelined until around midseason in 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Angels exercise '15 option on Huston Street
    Angels exercised RHP Huston Street's $7 million club option for 2015.

    Advice: An expected move. Street notched 41 saves to go along with a 1.37 ERA and 57/14 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings this season between the Padres and Angels. He's a bargain for 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Nats turn down Rafael Soriano's $14M option
    Nationals declined RHP Rafael Soriano's $14 million option for 2015.

    Advice: An easy decision for the Nats after Soriano lost his ninth-inning job in the second half of the 2014 season. The right-hander did not have a buyout on the option and will be an interesting free agent case this winter. He turns 35 years old in December. Rotoworld.com

  • Cards exercise John Lackey's $500K option
    Cardinals exercised RHP John Lackey's $500,000 club option for 2015.

    Advice: The MLB-minimum option was added to Lackey's five-year, $82.5 million contract with the Red Sox after he underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in October 2011, and Lackey told the Cardinals this summer that he fully intends to honor it. Lackey turned 36 years old last week and wasn't exactly dominant after the trade that sent him from Boston to St. Louis, but it's obviously still a heck of a bargain. Rotoworld.com

  • Blue Jays acquire Hendriks from the Royals
    Blue Jays acquired RHP Liam Hendriks from the Royals for C Santiago Nessy.

    Advice: Hendriks was designated for assignment by the Royals earlier this week and is now headed back to Toronto, where he opened the 2014 season. The 25-year-old right-hander registered a 5.23 ERA in 32 2/3 innings this past summer between the Royals and Jays. Rotoworld.com

  • Fish activate Jose Fernandez from 60-day DL
    Marlins activated RHP Jose Fernandez from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: It's just a procedural move to clear up the club's 40-man roster. Fernandez underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in May and is doubtful to join Miami's starting rotation until sometime in June 2015. He'll be placed back on the disabled list next spring. Rotoworld.com

  • Blue Jays acquire Liam Hendriks from Royals
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Blue Jays have acquired Liam Hendriks from the Royals.

    Advice: Rosenthal says a catcher will be heading to Kansas City as compensation. Hendriks actually began the 2014 season with Toronto and will now rejoin the club as organizational pitching depth. The 25-year-old right-hander owns a 5.92 career ERA in the bigs. Rotoworld.com

  • Angels to pick up Street's club option
    The Angels are expected to pick up Huston Street's $7 million club option for 2015.

    Advice: It's an easy choice. Street notched 41 saves to go along with a 1.37 ERA and 57/14 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings this season between the Padres and Angels. Health is always the big question with him, but he's a bargain at $7 million. Rotoworld.com

  • Royals designate Liam Hendriks for assignment
    Royals designated RHP Liam Hendriks for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Moises Sierra who was claimed off waivers from the White Sox on Friday. The 25-year-old Australian hurler appeared in nine games between the Blue Jays and Royals in 2014, compiling a 5.23 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 23/7 K/BB ratio over 32 2/3 innings. With the ability to start and work in relief, he shouldn't have any trouble finding another team willing to give him a shot. Rotoworld.com

  • Haren undergoes arthroscopic shoulder surgery
    Dan Haren underwent arthroscopic surgery Wednesday afternoon on his left shoulder.

    Advice: It was a minor procedure on his non-throwing arm, and Haren should be fully recovered by the beginning of spring training next February. His $10 million option for 2015 vested near the end of the September, so the soft-tossing right-hander will presumably have a spot in the Los Angeles rotation next year. Haren registered a 2.09 ERA over his final seven starts in 2014. Rotoworld.com
