    • Gregorio Petit outrighted to Triple-A
      Astros sent INF Gregorio Petit outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

      Advice: Petit was designated for assignment last week and has now cleared waivers. Petit, 29, batted .278/.300/.423 with two home runs and a 25/1 K/BB ratio in 37 games this past season. Rotoworld.com

    • Yankees have checked in on Troy Tulowitzki
      According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Yankees have checked in with the Rockies on Troy Tulowitzki.

      Advice: Heyman reported late last week that the Mets and Rockies had been "quietly discussing" the parameters of a Tulowitzki trade, but the two sides have not been able to find a match. And while the Yankees also have a big hole at shortstop, they probably don't possess the kind of elite-level prospects that Colorado would want in a return package. Heyman writes Monday that it "remains unclear how committed the Rockies-owning Monfort brothers are to trading the beloved Tulo." Rotoworld.com

    • Braves pick up Jace Peterson from Padres
      Braves acquired INF Jace Peterson from the Padres in the Justin Upton trade.

      Advice: A former sandwich round pick, Peterson batted .307/.402/.447 with 16 steals between Double- and Triple-A last season and got a cup of coffee in the majors. He's a pretty solid middle infield prospect but didn't land in a great situation in Atlanta with Andrelton Simmons holding down shortstop and Jose Peraza on his way at second base. Rotoworld.com

    • Shawn O'Malley released by Angels
      Angels released INF/OF Shawn O'Malley.

      Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Johnny Giavotella. O'Malley, who will turn 27 later this month, is a career .258/.351/.338 hitter in the minors and got a cup of coffee with the Angels at the end of last season. Rotoworld.com

    • A's release veteran INF Nick Punto
      Athletics released INF Nick Punto.

      Advice: Punto, 37, batted just .207/.296/.293 this season for the A's while battling some injuries. The A's will still be responsible for his $2.75 million salary next season. Someone will get Punto a shot due to his versatility, but he might have to settle for a minor league deal. Rotoworld.com

    • Phillies have interest in Rafael Furcal
      ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Phillies are "kicking the tires" on Rafael Furcal.

      Advice: Freddy Galvis is expected to take over at shortstop following the trade of Jimmy Rollins, but Furcal could be added as a backup option. The 37-year-old infielder was limited to just nine games for the Marlins this season due to leg issues after missing all of 2013 following Tommy John surgery. Rotoworld.com

    • Mets still talking Tulo trade with Rockies
      CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets and Rockies "have been quietly discussing" a potential Troy Tulowitzki trade for weeks.

      Advice: He adds that pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard "is said to be the centerpiece of discussions" of the package that would head to the Rockies. However, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says the two teams have talked all offseason but no traction has been gained. A source told him he thinks the chances of the two sides completing a deal are "5-10 percent." In other words, nothing has really changed here. Rotoworld.com

    • Rockies sign INF Descalso to a two-year deal
      Rockies signed INF Daniel Descalso to a two-year, $3.6 million contract.

      Advice: ESPN's Jerry Crasnick passed along the contract terms. Descalso was non-tendered by the Cardinals earlier this month after batting just .244/.333/.311 over 104 games this past season, but he's capable of playing all over the infield. He'll essentially replace Josh Rutledge in a utility role. Rotoworld.com

    • Rangers optimistic about re-signing Rosales
      Jeff Wilson of the Fort-Worth Star Telegram writes that the Rangers are optimistic about re-signing Adam Rosales.

      Advice: Rosales was non-tendered by the Rangers in December, but they still hope to bring him back for a lesser salary. The 31-year-old batted .262 with four home runs and a .706 OPS over 56 games this season and would function as a utility infielder if he returns. Rotoworld.com

    • Astros designate INF Petit for assignment
      Astros designated INF Gregorio Petit for assignment.

      Advice: The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Jed Lowrie on the Astros' 40-man roster. Petit, 29, batted .278/.300/.423 with two home runs and a 25/1 K/BB ratio in 37 games this past season. Rotoworld.com

    • Astros finalize contract with Jed Lowrie
      Astros signed INF Jed Lowrie to a three-year, $23 million contract.

      Advice: The deal includes a $6 million club option for 2018 with a $1 million buyout. Lowrie, who previously played for the Astros in 2012, is expected to take over the starting shortstop job. The 30-year-old batted just .249/.321/.355 with six home runs and 50 RBI in 136 games this past season, but there's rebound potential now that he's leaving Oakland. Rotoworld.com

    • Yankees sign Cole Figueroa to minors deal
      Yankees signed INF Cole Figueroa to a minor league contract.

      Advice: Figueroa hit just .233/.286/.326 in 23 games with the Rays in 2014. The 27-year-old will function as organizational infield depth in 2015 for the Yankees. Rotoworld.com

    • Astros do 3-year, $23M deal with Jed Lowrie
      According to MLB.com's Brian McTaggart, the Astros have signed Jed Lowrie to a three-year deal.

      Advice: The contract will be worth $23 million and also includes a $6 million club option (or $1 million buyout) for 2018. Lowrie batted just .249/.321/.355 with six home runs and 50 RBI in 136 games this past season for the A's, but he had a good 2013 season in Oakland and flashed impressive power in 2012 in hitter-friendly Houston, slugging 16 dingers in 97 games. He should be a nice upgrade at shortstop for the Astros. Rotoworld.com

    • D'Backs sign Worth to minor league deal
      Diamondbacks signed INF Danny Worth to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

      Advice: Worth is a .230/.293/.295 hitter in 292 career plate appearances at the major league level, but the 29-year-old can play all over the infield defensively and could get a look as a utilityman at some point next season in Arizona. Worth had an offer from one team this winter to try becoming a pitcher. Rotoworld.com
