  • 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

  • Brewers decline Rickie Weeks' 2015 option
    Brewers declined 2B Rickie Weeks' $14.5 million option for 2015.

    Advice: It's no surprise, of course, after Weeks lost his second base job to Scooter Gennett this season. He hit well in a part-time role, batting .274/.357/.452 with eight homers over 286 plate appearances. He's injury-prone and the big upside isn't there anymore, but Weeks is probably intriguing enough to land a starting job somewhere this winter. 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

  • Homer Bailey activated from 60-day DL
    Reds activated RHP Homer Bailey from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The first year of Bailey's six-year, $105 million contract didn't go well, as he posted a disappointing 3.71 ERA before having surgery last month to repair a tear in his flexor tendon. The right-hander expects to be ready for the start of the 2015 campaign. Rotoworld.com
