  • O's acquire L.J. Hoes from Astros
    Orioles acquired OF L.J. Hoes from the Astros for cash considerations.

    Advice: Hoes was designated for assignment by the Astros last week and the Orioles jumped at the opportunity at a reunion. The 25-year-old has struggled in sporadic opportunities in the majors, but he's coming off a strong season in Triple-A where he batted .295/.383/.400 over 99 games. He figures to compete for a bench job in the spring. Yesterday, 8:38 am

  • Bradley penciled in as CF in 2016
    Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated on WEEI's "Hot Stove Show" on Tuesday night that Jackie Bradley is penciled in as the starting center fielder for 2016.

    Advice: What Bradley brings defensively can't be questioned, so the Red Sox are hoping that the progress he showed with the bat down the stretch is for real. The 25-year-old continues to pop up in trade rumors, but assuming he stays put this winter, Farrell envisions having Mookie Betts in right field and Rusney Castillo in left. Yesterday, 7:18 am
  • Braves sign Tuiasosopo to minor league deal
    Braves signed OF Matt Tuiasosopo to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Tuiasosopo, 29, spent the 2015 season with the Triple-A affiliate for the White Sox while batting .230/.344/.447 with 18 home runs and 52 RBI over 103 games. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2013 as a member of the Tigers, but with the Braves in tear-down mode, anything is possible. Tuesday, 11:12 am

  • Padres drawing trade interest in Margot
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal and Jon Morosi, the Padres are drawing trade interest in prospect outfielder Manuel Margot.

    Advice: Margot, 21, was just acquired from the Red Sox this month in the Craig Kimbrel deal. Padres general manager A.J. Preller has shown that he likes to wheel and deal, but one source told Rosenthal that the odds are 80-20 against a trade. It would take another high impact player/prospect for the Padres to even consider the possibility. Tuesday, 10:14 am
  • Nats ink Schafer to minor league deal
    Nationals signed OF Logan Schafer to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Schafer appeared in 69 games with the Brewers this season and owns a .212/.286/.319 batting line in the majors. The 29-year-old plays all three outfield positions and could be a bench player for the Nationals in 2016. Tuesday, 10:04 am

  • Orioles interested in bringing back OF Parra
    According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, the Orioles are interested in bringing back Gerardo Parra.

    Advice: Crasnick notes, however, that it would probably have to be a two-year deal. Parra, 28, may be asking for three or even four years after batting .291/.328/.452 with 14 homers and 14 steals in 2015 while playing all three outfield positions. Multiple teams have already been linked to him -- the Royals and Mets among them. Monday, 12:56 pm

    Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports wrote that the Orioles "still have interest" in free agent OF L.J. Hoes.

    Advice: Hoes elected to become a free agent in mid-October after spending the 2015 season with the Astros. He managed four hits in 15 at-bats with the big league squad. The 25-year-old outfielder was actually drafted by the Orioles in the third round of the 2008 amateur draft. For his career, he's the owner of a .237/.289/.328 batting line. Sunday, 12:14 pm

  • Cafardo: Brett Gardner trade 'not a slam dunk'
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe said it's "not a slam dunk" that the Yankees will trade Brett Gardner this offseason.

    Advice: Rumors have been swirling around Gardner since the Yankees acquired Aaron Hicks from Minnesota last week. However, Gardner is coming off one of his best seasons and the Yankees consider him a clubhouse leader. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports believes the Yankees will only move Gardner if they can get a starting pitcher in return. Saturday, 5:42 pm
  • Gerardo Parra a possibility for Kansas City
    According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Royals are considering Gerardo Parra as a replacement for Alex Gordon.

    Advice: Cafardo said the feeling around Kansas City is that Gordon is "likely gone." The Royals are also interested in Jackie Bradley should the Red Sox make him available in a trade. The Mets have also been linked to Parra, who hit .291 this year in 547 at-bats between Baltimore and Milwaukee. Saturday, 3:50 pm

  • Pirates add OF Josh Bell to 40-man roster
    Pirates purchased the contract of 1B/OF Josh Bell from Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: The 23-year-old prospect hit .317/.393/.446 with seven homers, 78 RBI and nine stolen bases in 131 games between Indianapolis and Double-A Altoona in 2015. He should get an opportunity to debut with the big league club during the 2016 campaign. Friday, 5:48 pm

  • Rockies purchase contract of Raimel Tapia
    Rockies purchased the contract of OF Raimel Tapia from High-A Modesto.

    Advice: The move adds the 21-year-old outfielder to the 40-man roster and protects him from the Rule 5 draft. Tapia slashed .305/.333/.467 with 12 homers, 71 RBI and 26 swipes in 131 games at High-A Modesto in 2015. He's expected to begin the 2016 campaign at Double-A. Friday, 5:34 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

  • Tigers complete trade for Cameron Maybin
    Tigers acquired OF Cameron Maybin and cash considerations from the Braves for LHPs Ian Krol and Gabe Speier.

    Advice: The deal saves the Braves approximately $6 million. Maybin's coming off one of the best seasons of his career. In 2015, he slashed .267/.327/.370 with 10 homers, 59 RBI and 23 steals over 505 at-bats. With the trade, the 28-year-old outfielder has come full circle. The Tigers drafted him with the 10th overall pick in the 2005 amateur draft before moving him to the Marlins in 2008. Friday, 2:12 pm
  • Athletics designate Gentry for assignment
    Athletics designated OF Craig Gentry for assignment.

    Advice: Gentry saw 50 at-bats with the A's in 2015. He did very little with them. The veteran outfielder slashed just .120/.196/.200 in that limited stretch of action. Still, Gentry will likely find a home elsewhere, as he's a proven bench option if nothing else. Friday, 12:57 pm

  • Mets purchase Brandon Nimmo's contract
    Mets purchased the contract of OF Brandon Nimmo from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Nimmo was a supplemental first-round pick in 2011. He spent time at High-A, Double-A and Triple-A in 2015. The Mets promoted the 22-year-old outfield prospect to Triple-A in late July. Overall, he slashed .269/.362/.372 with five homers, four triples and 26 RBI over 376 minor league at-bats. He's now protected from the Rule 5 draft. Friday, 12:38 pm
  • Report: Gardner-for-Castro trade discussed
    The New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand reports that the Yankees and Cubs have discussed a swap of Brett Gardner and Starlin Castro.

    Advice: A major league executive told Feinsand that "many teams" have engaged in talks (to some degree) regarding Gardner. More specifically, Feinsand wrote that the Cubs and Yankees have spoke about a potential Gardner-for-Castro trade. Now 32, Gardner has three years and $38 million left on his contract. Yankees GM Brian Cashman has indicated that the team is open to making any move that would help the team. The Yankees fielded a merry band of mediocrity at second base in 2015 and Castro would certainly boost them there. Previously, it was reported by Joel Sherman of the New York Post that the Mariners have also shown interest in Gardner. While rumors are swirling around Gardner, nothing appears to be imminent on the trade front. Friday, 7:18 am
  • Padres add OF Margot to 40-man roster
    Padres purchased the contract of OF Manuel Margot from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Margot, who was acquired from the Red Sox last week in the Craig Kimbrel trade, is now on the Padres' 40-man roster. The 21-year-old is coming off an impressive season between High-A and Double-A and likely isn't far off from the majors. Thursday, 8:20 pm
  • Mets have been in touch with Gerardo Parra
    Marc Carig of Newsday reports that the Mets have been in touch with the representatives for free agent outfielder Gerardo Parra.

    Advice: The Mets were connected to Parra at the trade deadline and they are considering him again now that they are looking for a possible platoon partner for Juan Lagares in center field. The 28-year-old batted .291/.328/.452 with 14 home runs, 51 RBI, and 14 stolen bases in 2014, though he struggled after a midseason trade to the Orioles. The Mets are expected to consider other options in center field, including Denard Span and Dexter Fowler. Tuesday, 5:33 am
