  • A's claim Andrew Brown off waivers
    Athletics claimed OF Andrew Brown off waivers from the Mets.

    Advice: Brown has hit just .220/.281/.390 across parts of four major league seasons. The 30-year-old isn't a great bet to earn an Opening Day roster spot next spring. Rotoworld.com

  • Josh Johnson to test out free agency
    Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Josh Johnson will test out free agency rather than re-sign with the Padres during their exclusive negotiating window.

    Advice: Both sides are interested in working out a new deal, with Johnson saying he feels he has "unfinished business" with the Padres after missing the season following Tommy John surgery. However, it appears that, not surprisingly, the right-hander will give other teams a chance at him before committing to the Padres again. Rotoworld.com

  • Tigers exercise Joakim Soria's option for '15
    Tigers exercised RHP Joakim Soria's $7 million option for 2015.

    Advice: Soria didn't pitch very well after being acquired by the Tigers at the trade deadline, but he had a terrific year overall and the club needs all the bullpen arms it can get. As of now, Joe Nathan is expected to remain the team's closer heading into next season, though it's possible the Tigers will try to upgrade over the winter. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays expected to pick up Ben Zobrist's option
    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays are expected to pick up Ben Zobrist's $7.5 million option for 2015.

    Advice: It's a no-brainer move, as Zobrist is coming off another solid season and remains incredibly valuable due to his versatility. But while the Rays intend to pick up the option, it's been speculated that they might consider trading Zobrist this offseason since he's a year away from free agency. Rotoworld.com

  • Matsuzaka to get big offer to return to Japan
    Sports Hochi reports that the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks plan to offer Daisuke Matsuzaka a four-year contract worth about $3.58 million per season.

    Advice: He'd be crazy to turn that kind of money down, as Matsuzaka would have to take a minor league deal from a major league club. The right-hander has said previously that he'd be open to returning to Japan if they give him a chance to start. It would be shocking if Matsuzaka turns the offer down. Rotoworld.com

  • Johan Santana removed from 60-day DL
    Orioles activated LHP Johan Santana from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Santana's comeback attempt from another shoulder surgery ended in June when he tore his Achilles tendon. The lefty will have to settle for another minor league deal this offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Joel Hanrahan activated from 60-day DL
    Tigers activated RHP Joel Hanrahan from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Hanrahan never threw a pitch for the Tigers after signing in May while he worked his way back from Tommy John surgery. He'll be a free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Pelfrey activated from 60-day DL
    Twins activated RHP Mike Pelfrey from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Pelfrey missed most of the season after having surgery to relieve pressure on the ulnar nerve in his throwing elbow. He's expected to be fine for spring training and should have a spot at the back-end of the Twins' rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Blanks removed from 60-day DL
    Athletics activated 1B/OF Kyle Blanks from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The injury-prone 28-year-old was limited to 26 games this season due to tendinitis in his left Achilles, an issue that also bothered him in 2013. He hit .309/.409/.436 when healthy, but Blanks still might be non-tendered this offseason in his final year of arbitration eligibility. Rotoworld.com

  • A.J. Griffin activated from 60-day DL
    Athletics activated RHP A.J. Griffin from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Griffin missed the 2014 season after having Tommy John surgery in late April. He's probably going to be sidelined until around midseason next year. Rotoworld.com

  • Franklin Gutierrez taken off restricted list
    Mariners activated OF Franklin Gutierrez from the restricted list.

    Advice: Gutierrez sat out the season after being diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis. He's been working out and is feeling better, though, and the outfielder plans to return in 2015. He'll just have to do it on a minor league pact. Rotoworld.com

  • Joey Votto removed from 60-day DL
    Reds activated 1B Joey Votto from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Votto was limited to just 62 games this season due to a distal quad strain. He'll be a bit of an injury red flag heading into the 2015 campaign. Rotoworld.com

    Dodgers activated LHP Paul Maholm from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Maholm's season ended in early August due to a torn ACL. It's not clear whether the rehab will affect his availability for spring training. Maholm is a free agent this winter. 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

  • Tigers likely to exercise $7M option on Soria
    The Tigers are expected to exercise their $7 million option on Joakim Soria for 2015.

    Advice: "We still have to make the final decision," team president/general manager Dave Dombrowski said last week. "But it's a situation where we look at him as being an important acquisition toward this [coming] year also." Soria didn't live up to expectations in his short stint with the Tigers after a midseason trade, posting a 4.91 ERA over 11 innings of work and getting lit up in the postseason, but the Tigers could use the protection for shaky closer Joe Nathan. They have until five days after the end of the World Series to make an official decision. Rotoworld.com
