    Advice: Green saw some brief time in the majors with the Giants this season and batted .319/.336/.454 with seven homers at Triple-A Sacramento. Of course, hitting in the minors has never been an issue for him. He'll look for another minor league contract this winter. 46 minutes ago

    Advice: Tuiasosopo had a brief cup of coffee with the Braves this season but spent the bulk of the year at Triple-A Gwinnett, batting .246/.351/.483 with 11 homers. He's simple organizational depth. Today, 9:33 am

  • Shin-Soo Choo could be used as DH in 2017
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels has indicated that Shin-Soo Choo could see lots of time in the designated hitter spot next season in an effort to keep him healthy.

    Advice: "I’d prefer not to have a set DH," Daniels said. "Some of it is going to depend on health and what all we do. I think [Choo] takes a lot of pride in going out there defensively, but we need his bat in the lineup. That’s the priority." Choo made four trips to the disabled list in 2016, playing in only 48 games. He hasn't rated well in defensive metrics the last few seasons, anyway, so putting his bat in the DH spot to give him a better shot to stay on the field makes sense. Of course, a lot could depend on what the Rangers do this offseason, as Ian Desmond, Carlos Gomez and Carlos Beltran are all impending free agents. Today, 6:57 am
  • Yorman Rodriguez activated from 60-day DL
    Reds activated OF Yorman Rodriguez from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: He's now back on the 40-man roster. Rodriguez was limited to just 11 rehab games this season while battling hamstring issues. Today, 6:02 am
  • Caleb Cotham activated from 60-day DL
    Reds activated RHP Caleb Cotham from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Cotham missed most of the season with shoulder and knee issues, undergoing surgery on his knee in August. The hope is that he'll be ready for spring training, although it wouldn't be a surprise to see him eased into things. Today, 5:59 am
  • Zack Cozart activated from 60-day DL
    Reds activated SS Zack Cozart from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: He's now back on the 40-man roster after his season ended prematurely due to soreness in his surgically-repaired right knee. Cozart is expected to be shopped in trades this winter, with the Mariners looking like a probable landing spot after they discussed the shortstop with the Reds at the deadline. Today, 5:55 am
    L, 7-4 vs ChC
  • Devin Mesoraco activated from 60-day DL
    Reds activated C Devin Mesoraco from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: It's a paper move which restores his status on the 40-man roster. Mesoraco is recovering from shoulder and hip surgeries but should have a shot to be ready to go come Opening Day. Today, 5:53 am
  • James Shields won't exercise opt-out clause
    James Shields will not exercise the opt-out clause in his contract, per SB Nation's Chris Cotillo.

    Advice: An easy decision for Shields, who is owed $21 million each of the next two seasons with a $16 million club option (or $2 million buyout) for 2019. The veteran right-hander posted brutal 6-19 record, 5.85 ERA, and 1.60 WHIP across 33 starts in 2016 while earning $21 million -- $16 million of it paid by the Padres. San Diego is still on the hook for another $22 million of the $44 million Shields is still owed. Shields will turn 35 years old in December. Yesterday, 10:39 am
  • Urrutia released from VWL team
    Henry Urrutia was released earlier this week from Leones del Caracas in the Venezuelan Winter League.

    Advice: Urrutia batted .264 with three doubles and seven RBI in 15 games with Caracas -- not terrible results. Often there are other things at play behind the decisions made by these winter league clubs. Urrutia, a native of Cuba, is traveling back to the United States to begin a period of offseason rest and rehab. He figures to open the 2017 campaign at Double-A Bowie or Triple-A Norfolk.
