  • O's designate Wilkins for assignment

  • White Sox sign Alex Avila to one-year deal
    White Sox signed C Alex Avila to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

    Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman passed along the contract details. Avila, who turns 29 in January, struggled through injuries this season while batting just .191 with four home runs and a .626 OPS over 67 games. However, he's a gamble at this price. Avila figures to share playing time behind the plate with Tyler Flowers in 2016. Today, 8:22 am

  • Orioles ink minor league deal with Ji-Man Choi
    Orioles signed 1B Ji-Man Choi to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: His contract includes a July 1 opt-out clause. The 24-year-old has never appeared at the major league level but he's posted solid numbers in Triple-A, hitting .280 with a .379 on base percentage in 335 at-bats. A broken fibula limited Choi to 23 games last season. Saturday, 8:18 pm

  • Cubs purchase contract of Dan Vogelbach
    Cubs purchased the contract of 1B Dan Vogelbach from Double-A Tennessee.

    Advice: The 22-year-old was the Cubs' second round selection from the 2011 draft. He missed time with a strained oblique in 2015, slashing .279/.415/.434 with seven homers and 39 RBI in only 81 games. Friday, 9:17 pm
  • Wilin Rosario designated for assignment
    Rockies designated C/1B Wilin Rosario for assignment.

    Advice: It's a very surprising move, even though Rosario had fallen out of favor in Colorado and was due a raise this winter through arbitration. The 26-year-old slashed .273/.306/.473 with 71 homers in 447 games with the Rockies in his five seasons in Colorado. He should have plenty of suitors on the open market. Friday, 5:25 pm

  • Rays designate Daniel Nava for assignment
    Rays designated OF Daniel Nava for assignment.

    Advice: The 32-year-old had a miserable 2015 campaign, slashing a mere .194/.315/.245 with one homer, 10 RBI and a 36/20 K/BB ratio over 166 plate appearances between the Red Sox and Rays. He'll likely have to settle for a minor league deal this winter. Friday, 4:57 pm

  • Braves have discussed reunion with Pena
    Mark Bowman of reports that the Braves have been in touch with free agent catcher Brayan Pena.

    Advice: Pena was originally signed by the Braves and spent the first four years of his major league career with the club. He turns 34 in January and batted .273/.334/.324 over 367 plate appearances with the Reds this past season. The Braves have already re-signed A.J. Pierzynski, so adding Pena would put Christian Bethancourt's future in question. Wednesday, 8:36 am

  • Kennys Vargas piques interest of KBO clubs
    A person with direct knowledge of the situation told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that Kennys Vargas is drawing interest from at least one team in the Korean Baseball Organization.

    Advice: The Twins won the blind bid for Korean first baseman Byung-Ho Park earlier in November, which makes Vargas somewhat expendable. The 25-year-old slugger could see his contract sold to an interested party in the KBO, though Twins vice president of player personnel Mike Radcliffe called the early reports "speculative." Vargas showed promise in 2014, hitting .274/.316/.456 with nine homers and 38 RBI across 215 at-bats. His numbers took a dip this last season, though, as he slashed just .240/.277/.349 with five homers and 17 RBI in 175 at-bats (58 games) with the big club. Tuesday, 6:19 pm
  • Giants sign Blanks to minors deal
    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Giants have agreed to a minor league contract with Kyle Blanks, pending a physical.

    Advice: John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle was the first to break the news that the two parties were nearing an agreement. Assuming he passes the physical, he'll get an invite to spring training, where he should have a decent chance to make the Opening Day roster. Blanks is coming off of a pair of Achilles surgeries, but if he's healthy, it's a nice little roll of the dice by the Giants. The 29-year-old first baseman hit .313/.352/.522 with three homers and six RBI over 67 at-bats with the Rangers in 2015. Tuesday, 2:45 pm

  • Giants closing in on deal with Kyle Blanks
    John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Giants are closing in on a contract with free agent Kyle Blanks.

    Advice: The deal would be on a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training, though Shea notes that as long as he's healthy Blanks would stand a good chance of breaking camp with the club. With his ability to play first base or either corner outfield spot in a pinch, his powerful right-handed bat could fit nicely in San Francisco. Nov 16, 7:06 pm
