  • Crasnick: Mariners working on deal for Ozuna
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Mariners are working on a trade to acquire Marcell Ozuna.

    Advice: Ozuna has fallen out of favor in Miami, as he's apparently in owner Jeffrey Loria's doghouse. The 25-year-old outfielder hit only .259/.308/.383 with 10 homers and 44 RBI in 2015 and spent time in the minors. However, he batted .269/.317/.455 with 23 bombs and 85 RBI in 2014 and is not yet arbitration-eligible, so there's obvious appeal. Crasnick says the Marlins are looking for a young starter in exchange for Ozuna, and the Miami Herald's Clark Spencer hears Roenis Elias and Nate Karns could pique their interest. Today, 6:52 pm
  • Reyes pleads not guilty to domestic abuse
    Jose Reyes has pleaded not guilty to a domestic abuse charge involving his wife.

    Advice: Reyes was arrested and then released after posting a $1,000 bail following an incident on October 31 in which he allegedly grabbed his wife by the throat and shoved her into a sliding glass door. Major League Baseball instituted a domestic violence policy earlier this year which gives commissioner Rob Manfred the power to discipline Reyes even if he isn't convicted. Today, 5:35 pm
  • Yankees making Ivan Nova available
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Yankees have let other teams know that Ivan Nova is available.

    Advice: Sherman says the Yanks "are not selling low" on Nova, as they think he will be stronger as he's further removed from Tommy John surgery and also motivated in his walk year. However, New York will consider dealing the right-hander as they look to plug in a rotation piece for beyond the 2016 season. Nova held a 5.07 ERA and 63/33 K/BB ratio in 94 innings over 17 starts in 2015 and is set to make around $4.5 million in his final year of arbitration eligibility. Today, 4:44 pm
  • Angels bring aboard veteran C Geovany Soto
    Angels signed C Geovany Soto to a one-year contract.

    Advice:'s Alden Gonzalez says the deal is worth $2.8 million. Soto batted .219/.301/.406 with nine home runs this past season for the White Sox while sharing time with Tyler Flowers. He figures to again share a starting job -- this time with Carlos Perez -- in 2016. Today, 4:39 pm
  • Orioles bring back catcher Audry Perez
    Orioles re-signed C Audry Perez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Perez was at Triple-A Norfolk for all of 2015, hitting only .243/.279/.303 with two homers. He'll serve as an extra backstop in spring training. Today, 3:00 pm

  • Orioles re-sign Pedro Beato to minors deal
    Orioles re-signed RHP Pedro Beato to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Beato spent all of 2015 at Triple-A Norfolk, posting a 2.65 ERA and 61/25 K/BB ratio over 74 2/3 innings. He'll most likely begin 2016 back at Norfolk. Today, 2:49 pm

  • Kevin Gausman undergoes LASIK surgery
    Kevin Gausman said Tuesday that he "can see like a hawk" after undergoing LASIK surgery three days after the season ended.

    Advice: "I see 20-15 now," Gausman said. "I can see like a hawk. It's been great." The right-hander will now be able to ditch the goggles he used to wear on the mound and the improved eyesight surely can only help. Gausman has a huge arm and has shown flashes of brilliance with the Orioles the last three seasons but will be looking to have a true breakout season in 2016. Today, 2:26 pm
  • Mets ink Stolmy Pimentel to minors deal
    Mets signed RHP Stolmy Pimentel to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Pimentel, 25, holds a mediocre 4.39 ERA over 33 career relief appearances but has struck out a batter per frame. He'll compete for a bullpen job in spring training. Today, 1:28 pm

  • Report: Nationals interested in Ben Zobrist
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal writes that the Nationals are interested in free agent Ben Zobrist.

    Advice: Rosenthal writes that the Nationals are in need of a left-handed hitting infielder and outfielder. The switch-hitting Zobrist is capable of playing all over and has been a target for the Nationals in the past, so it's a natural fit. Of course, the same could be said for several teams, including the NL East rival Mets. Today, 11:39 am

  • Braves sign Tuiasosopo to minor league deal
    Braves signed OF Matt Tuiasosopo to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Tuiasosopo, 29, spent the 2015 season with the Triple-A affiliate for the White Sox while batting .230/.344/.447 with 18 home runs and 52 RBI over 103 games. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2013 as a member of the Tigers, but with the Braves in tear-down mode, anything is possible. Today, 11:12 am

  • Braves sign Brignac to minor league deal
    Braves signed INF Reid Brignac to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Brignac, who turns 30 in January, appeared in 17 games with the Marlins this past season and owns a lowly .219/.266/.310 batting line in the majors. He's simply organizational fodder at this point. Today, 11:08 am

  • Braves ink d'Arnaud to minors deal
    Braves signed INF Chase d'Arnaud to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: D'Arnaud appeared in nine games with the Phillies this past season and spent most of the year in Triple-A. He turns 29 in January and appears likely to serve as organizational depth for the 2016 campaign. Today, 11:01 am

  • Dombrowski: No winter ball plans for Hanley
    Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday that there's "no plan in place" for Hanley Ramirez to play winter ball.

    Advice: Ramirez told Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes that he was planning to play for the Licey Tigers in the Dominican Winter League, but Dombrowski said "presently this is only a rumor." It's unclear whether the possibility has been scratched altogether, but clearly there has been a miscommunication between the two sides. Ramirez currently projects to serve as Boston's regular first baseman in 2016 and he could get some time at his new position if he ends up playing winter ball. Today, 9:38 am
  • Report: Mariners expected to trade Trumbo
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick was told by several rival executives that they expect the Mariners to trade Mark Trumbo this offseason.

    Advice: Trumbo currently projects to be the primary first baseman in 2016, but a lot can change over the winter. It's worth noting that new Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto, formerly with the Angels, has traded him before. Trumbo projects to make in excess of $9 million in his final year of arbitration. He turns 30 in January and batted .262/.310/.449 with 22 home runs and 64 RBI over 142 games this past season. Today, 7:12 am

  • Lincecum (hip) to throw for teams in January
    Tim Lincecum (hip) plans to hold a showcase for interested teams in January.

    Advice: Lincecum underwent surgery in September to repair a torn labrum in his hip and fix an impingement. His rehab process is ahead of schedule and he could receive clearance to begin throwing when he visits his surgeon for a follow-up in December. The hope is that he might be able to regain some velocity now that his hip pain is gone. The 31-year-old was limited to just 15 starts this past season and owns a 4.68 ERA (75 ERA+) over the past four seasons. Today, 5:55 am

  • Hanley Ramirez to play winter ball
    Enrique Rojas of reports that Hanley Ramirez will play for the Licey Tigers in the Dominican Winter League.

    Advice: Ramirez said that he'll serve mainly as Licey's designated hitter, although he'll also play some first base. The news is surely welcomed by the Red Sox as Ramirez transitions to first base next season. Staying active could also help Hanley show up to spring training slimmer, which Boston has told him they'd prefer. Yesterday, 2:59 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez not drawing much trade interest
    Five general managers told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe that they wouldn't trade for Hanley Ramirez even if the Red Sox agreed to cover half of his remaining salary.

    Advice: Ramirez was a total bust this year, hitting .249 with 19 homers while playing horrendous defense in left field. With three years and $66 million left on his contract, the Red Sox are going to have a tough time moving him. David Ortiz has decided to retire after next year, which could open the door for Ramirez to DH full time beginning in 2017. He'll start next season at first base. Saturday, 5:54 pm
  • MLB executive predicts Ozuna trade
    An MLB executive who spoke with ESPN's Jerry Crasnick said that he would "be surprised" if the Marlins held onto Marcell Ozuna.

    Advice: According to that major league excutive, "[Marlins owner Jeffrey] Loria clearly can't stand [Ozuna] and everybody knows it." In 459 at-bats with the Marlins, the 25-year-old outfielder slashed .259/.308/.383 with 10 homers and 44 RBI. An earlier November report by ESPN's Jayson Stark indicated that the Marlins are looking for a pitcher in the range of a No. 2 starter in exchange for Ozuna. Friday, 6:51 am
  • Report: Mets 'very interested' in Ben Zobrist
    Tim Rohan of the New York Times hears from a league source that the Mets are "very interested" in Ben Zobrist.

    Advice: Join the club. Still, the Mets' interest appears to be strong and genuine, as they met with his representatives at the recent GM Meetings and held a conference call with him on Wednesday. With his versatility, Zobrist is drawing interest from around 10 teams at the moment. Despite turning 35 next May, it's possible he could land a four-year deal this winter. Wednesday, 12:46 pm

  • Mets have reached out to Ben Zobrist's agent
    According to Ken Davidoff of the New York Post, the Mets have reached out to the agent of Ben Zobrist.

    Advice: Davidoff states in the same report that the Yankees are not interested in Zobrist despite their need for infield help. The veteran utilityman has already been connected to close to a dozen teams this offseason after hitting .276/.359/.450 with 13 home runs, 36 doubles, and 56 RBI in 126 games this past year between Oakland and Kansas City. Zobrist, 34, is probably looking for a three- or four-year deal. Nov 16, 11:55 am
