  • Cardinals activate Shane Robinson from DL
    Cardinals activated OF Shane Robinson from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Robinson was forced to go under the knife in late August to repair a separated left shoulder. The 30-year-old hit a paltry .150/.227/.200 in 60 at-bats with the Cardinals in 2014. He'll head into spring training looking to secure a role as a reserve outfielder.

    Mariners activated INF Willie Bloomquist from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The veteran infielder underwent season-ending surgery on his right knee in early August. The 36-year-old will enter the 2015 season on the final year of his two-year deal with the Mariners.

    Rockies sent 1B/OF Matt McBride outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: McBride, 29, had seven hits -- including two home runs -- over 31 at-bats for the Rockies this season. The Rox got him a few years ago from the Indians in the Ubaldo Jimenez trade.

  • Josh Satin outrighted to Triple-A
    Mets sent INF Josh Satin outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Satin was decent for the Mets as a part-time player in 2013, but he managed just three hits in 35 at-bats for the big club this season.

  • Ed Lucas outrighted to Triple-A
    Rangers sent INF Ed Lucas outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

  • Alex Rios' 2015 option declined by Rangers
    Rangers declined OF Alex Rios' $13.5 million option for 2015.

    Advice: He'll receive a $1 million buyout instead. Rios batted .280/.311/.398 with just four homers over 131 games this season before being shut down in September with a thumb injury. Even with the power outage, he shouldn't have trouble finding a starting job this offseason.

  • Pablo Sandoval still wants $100 million deal
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Pablo Sandoval is still seeking a contract north of $100 million.

    Advice: That's the figure that Heyman reported in the spring. It's not surprising that his asking price would start around there, but whether Sandoval winds up getting close to that figure remains to be seen. The Giants offered him a three-year deal in the vicinity of $40 million this spring, but they'd surely be willing to up that proposal. Sandoval could wind up taking a little less to remain in San Francisco, though the Red Sox are expected to bid aggressively.

  • Don Kelly outrighted to Triple-A
    Tigers sent INF/OF Don Kelly outright to Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: He's now off the 40-man roster. Kelly is arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter but could be non-tendered.

  • Tigers make qualifying offer to V-Mart
    Tigers extended a one-year qualifying offer to DH Victor Martinez.

    Advice: He'll decline it, but both sides are interested in working out a deal. Martinez is reportedly looking for a four-year pact after batting .335/.409/.565 with 32 homers and 103 RBI this season.

  • Blue Jays claim Andy Dirks off waivers
    Blue Jays claimed OF Andy Dirks off waivers from the Tigers.

    Advice: Dirks missed all of the 2014 season while rehabbing from back surgery before eventually being shut down with a strained hamstring. He's been a useful player at times in the past, though, and shouldn't have trouble cracking the Jays' Opening Day roster as long as he's healthy. Dirks is a career .276/.332/.413 hitter.

  • Shane Victorino activated from 60-day DL
    Red Sox activated OF Shane Victorino from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Victorino suffered through an injury-plagued 2014 campaign, eventually undergoing season-ending back surgery in August. He's expected to be fine by the time spring training rolls around.

  • Indians pick up Mike Aviles' 2015 option
    Indians exercised INF Mike Aviles' $3.5 million option for 2015.

    Advice: It was reported a week ago that they planned to pick it up, and now it's official. Aviles hit just .247/.273/.343 this season, but he offers plenty of value with his ability to play all over the diamond.

  • 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.

  • Kyle Blanks removed from 60-day DL
    Athletics activated 1B/OF Kyle Blanks from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The injury-prone 28-year-old was limited to 26 games this season due to tendinitis in his left Achilles, an issue that also bothered him in 2013. He hit .309/.409/.436 when healthy, but Blanks still might be non-tendered this offseason in his final year of arbitration eligibility.

  • Joey Votto removed from 60-day DL
    Reds activated 1B Joey Votto from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Votto was limited to just 62 games this season due to a distal quad strain. He'll be a bit of an injury red flag heading into the 2015 campaign.

  • Sandoval sets record, Giants win World Series
    Pablo Sandoval set a postseason record with a huge night in Wednesday's World Series Game 7 win, going 3-for-3 with two runs scored as the Giants edged the Royals 3-2 for the title.

    Advice: Sandoval broke a four-way tie with Marquis Grissom, Darin Erstad and David Freese when he doubled for his MLB-record 26th hit of the postseason (and third hit of the game) in the top of the eighth inning. Prior to that, Sandoval had two singles, a walk and two runs scored in the Game 7 win. For the series, Sandoval finished 12-for-28 (.429) with four RBI and six runs scored. It was a performance that will serve him well financially heading into free agency this winter.

  • Report: BoSox prioritizing Sandoval, Headley
    CBS Sports' reports that the Red Sox are "prioritizing" impending free agents Pablo Sandoval and Chase Headley.

    Advice: The Red Sox are looking for an upgrade at the hot corner after their third basemen hit just .211/.271/.308 this season. They'll have plenty of competition, of course, as the Giants would like to re-sign Sandoval and the Yankees are interested in keeping Headley. Sandoval will obviously be the most expensive of the two and will also be attached to draft pick compensation, as the Giants are expected to make him a qualifying offer. Headley won't be attached to a draft pick since he was traded during the season. Heyman hears that the Red Sox could also look at Brewers' third baseman Aramis Ramirez if he becomes a free agent.

  • Victor Martinez to seek four-year contract
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that impending free agent Victor Martinez will be looking for a four-year contract this winter.

    Advice: Martinez will turn 36 in December, but you can hardly blame him for shooting for a four-year deal after he batted .335/.409/.565 with 32 homers and 103 RBI this season. The Tigers would love to keep him, but they could balk at giving him another four-year pact. Regardless, V-Mart will be in high demand this offseason with offense down across baseball.

  • Indians expected to exercise option on Aviles
    The Indians are expected to exercise their 2015 option on Mike Aviles.

    Advice: Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said a few weeks ago that he was undecided on Aviles and his $3.5 million option, but Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the team is leaning toward bringing him back. Aviles hit just .247/.273/.343 last season but appeared at six different positions and offers a veteran presence. The Indians don't officially have to make a decision on the 33-year-old until three days after the end of the World Series.
