  • Cisnero signs minor league contract with Reds
    Reds signed RHP Jose Cisnero to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Cisnero was outrighted off the Astros' 40-man roster earlier this month. Cisnero, 25, had Tommy John surgery in May, so he won't be ready by the time spring rolls around. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The slick-fielding 24-year-old owns a horrifying .160/.188/.235 slash line over 81 career at-bats in the big leagues. He'll look to compete for a reserve infielder role with the Giants. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The 29-year-old utility man appeared in 27 games for the Padres during the 2014 season, slashing .233/.296/.274 with seven RBI in 73 at-bats. His versatility should allow him to compete for a reserve role with the Phillies. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies sign Jose Ortega to minor league deal
    Rockies signed RHP Jose Ortega to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 26-year-old hurler was bombed in his only appearance with the Tigers during the 2014 season, but posted a somewhat respectable 3.57 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 48/36 K/BB ratio over 58 frames at Triple-A Toledo. He'll provide bullpen depth in the minors for the Rockies. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The 27-year-old hurler cracked the big leagues for the first time in 2014, posting a 5.11 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 5/2 K/BB ratio over 12 1/3 innings with the Tigers. He'll function as organizational bullpen depth in Colorado. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies sign John Lannan to minors contract
    Rockies signed LHP John Lannan to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 30-year-old southpaw posted a 6.75 ERA over 56 innings of work at Triple-A Las Vegas in 2014. Given the Rockies struggles both in the rotation and the bullpen, it would be surprising to see him not get a shot at some point during the 2015 season. Rotoworld.com

    Diamondbacks signed OF Nick Buss to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 28-year-old outfielder saw his power fall off a cliff during the 2014 season at Triple-A, but was still able to post a solid .299/.364/.382 slash line with five homers and 68 RBI in 136 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Reds sign Josh Satin to minor league contract
    Reds signed INF Josh Satin to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The deal is expected to include an invitation to major league spring training. The 29-year-old struggled mightily in his 25 games with the Mets in 2014, slashing a mere .086/.143/.399 with a 14/6 K/BB ratio in 35 at-bats. He'll have a chance to compete for a reserve role on the Reds bench. Rotoworld.com

  • White Sox sign Joe Savery to minors contract
    White Sox signed LHP Joe Savery to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The deal should include an invitation to spring training as well. The 29-year-old southpaw appeared in just three games with the Athletics in 2014, hurling four scoreless innings. He was terrific at Triple-A Sacramento, compiling a 2.84 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 45/17 K/BB ratio over 44 1/3 innings. He'll have a strong chance of cracking the White Sox bullpen on Opening Day.

    Braves released LHP Jonny Venters.

    Advice: The 29-year-old hurler is expected to miss the entire 2015 season as he continues to recover from a third Tommy John surgery. Once healthy, he should be able to find an opportunity elsewhere on a minor league pact. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays narrow managerial choices down to three
    The Rays have narrowed down their managerial search to three finalists: Kevin Cash, Raul Ibanez and Don Wakamatsu.

    Advice: Wakamatsu is the only one of the trio who has previous experience as a major league manager. The surprise in this announcement, is that bench coach Dave Martinez, who was widely considered to be the favorite for the gig, wasn't even among the finalists. Rotoworld.com

    Evan Longoria (forearm) returned to the starting lineup for the MLB All-Stars Thursday in Japan.

    Advice: Longoria made an early exit from Monday's game in Tokyo after being hit on the left forearm by a pitch, but that was merely a precautionary move. He hit a home run Thursday in the final game of the 10-day tour. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves designate LHP Venters for assignment
    Braves designated LHP Jonny Venters for assignment.

    Advice: Two Tommy John surgeries have kept Venters from pitching in the majors since 2012. The southpaw is expected to miss the 2015 season as well, and the Braves decided their 40-man roster spot could be better used. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays interview Larkin, completing first round
    The Rays interviewed Barry Larkin for their managerial opening Saturday.

    Advice: Larkin was the final candidate to be interviewed, so Saturday's meeting marked the end of the first round of interviews. The team will now likely narrow its list and conduct another round of interviews before settling on a successor for Joe Maddon. Larkin gained some managerial experience managing Brazil in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, but he hasn't yet held a position as a major league manager. Rotoworld.com
