  • 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

  • Patrick Corbin activated from 60-day DL
    Diamondbacks activated LHP Patrick Corbin from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Corbin missed the 2014 campaign following Tommy John surgery and isn't expected back until June of next year. The left-hander was an All-Star in 2013, posting a 3.41 ERA over 32 starts. 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

  • Padres decline Johnson's $4 million option
    Padres decline RHP Josh Johnson's $4 million option for 2015.

    Advice: Johnson, of course, missed the 2014 campaign following Tommy John surgery and could get a late start to next season. However, he and the Padres are both interested in working out a smaller, likely incentive-laden deal. The right-hander has ample upside when healthy, which isn't terribly often. Rotoworld.com

  • Orioles exercise Darren O'Day's option
    Orioles exercised RHP Darren O'Day's $4.25 million option for 2015.

    Advice: O'Day has put together a fantastic 2.05 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 201/48 K/BB ratio over 197 2/3 frames since the beginning of 2012, establishing himself as one of the most reliable relievers in the American League. It's an obvious move for the Orioles. 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

  • White Sox decline option on RHP Paulino
    White Sox declined RHP Felipe Paulino's $4 million club option for 2015.

    Advice: The option carried a $250,000 buyout. Paulino threw just 18 1/3 innings with the White Sox this season due to lingering shoulder issues, so it was an easy call to decline. 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

  • Reds officially exercise Cueto's $10M option
    Reds exercised RHP Johnny Cueto's $10 million club option for 2015.

    Advice: Of course they did. Cueto was among the best pitchers in the majors in 2014, posting a career-high 20 wins with a 2.25 ERA and 242 strikeouts across 243 2/3 innings. He should be a fantasy ace again next season and then hit it big on the free agent market heading into 2016. Rotoworld.com

  • Phils decline Mike Adams' $6 million option
    Phillies declined RHP Mike Adams' $6 million club option for 2015.

    Advice: An easy decision for the Philadelphia front office. Adams pitched just 18 2/3 innings in 2014 and 25 innings in 2013 due in large part to a lingering right rotator cuff injury. He'll probably have to settle for a prove-your-health deal in free agency. Rotoworld.com

  • Rangers make 'opening offer' to Colby Lewis
    MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers have made an "opening offer" to free agent Colby Lewis.

    Advice: Something should get done before the exclusive negotiating window closes on Monday. Lewis had a rough 5.18 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 170 1/3 innings this season and missed the entire 2013 campaign due to hip surgery, so it's not like he'll be commanding big bucks. The right-hander turned 35 years old in August. Rotoworld.com

  • Danny Duffy hampered by rib cage injury
    Royals manager Ned Yost acknowledged after the World Series that Danny Duffy was held out of the postseason rotation because of a stress reaction in his rib cage.

    Advice: The injury didn't bother Duffy in short relief stints, but the pain would catch up to him if he went more than two or three innings. Duffy wound up making three relief appearances during Kansas City's deep postseason run, allowing two runs in 4 2/3 innings. He'll be a big part of the club's starting rotation in 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Reds exercise '15 option on Johnny Cueto
    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Reds have exercised their $10 million club option on Johnny Cueto for 2015.

    Advice: The Reds have yet to make an official announcement, but it's a no-brainer. Cueto stayed healthy and dominated this season, posting a career-high 20 wins to go along with a 2.25 ERA and 242/65 K/BB ratio over 243 2/3 innings. He can become a free agent after the 2015 season.

  • 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

  • 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
