    Twins signed C Juan Centeno to a minor league contract.

    L, 6-1 vs KC
  • Cardinals sign Brayan Peńa to two-year deal
    Cardinals signed C Brayan Peńa to a two-year contract.

    Advice: There's no word yet on the financials of the deal. Peńa, who will turn 34 in January, offers the Cards an upgrade over Tony Cruz but doesn't figure to see a ton of playing time unless Yadier Molina gets hurt. He's a career .260/.300/.352 hitter and batted .273/.334/.324 with no home runs over 367 plate appearances for the Reds this past season. Yesterday, 1:09 pm

  • Marlins ink C Adrian Nieto to minors deal
    Marlins signed C Adrian Nieto to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Nieto appeared in 48 games for the White Sox in 2014 but batted just .236/.296/.340. He spent the entire 2015 season at Double-A Birmingham, slashing .207/.344/.316. Consider him emergency catching depth for Miami. Yesterday, 9:30 am

    Indians signed C Anthony Recker to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

  • 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. Wednesday, 8:22 am
    L, 6-0 vs Det
  • J.P. Arencibia released by Rays
    Rays released C J.P. Arencibia.

    Advice: Arencibia was designated for assignment last week. He hit .310/.315/.606 with six homers and 17 RBI in 24 games for the Rays, but they weren't interested in paying him what he'd make in arbitration. Tuesday, 7:02 pm

  • Angels bring aboard veteran C Geovany Soto
    Angels signed C Geovany Soto to a one-year contract.

    Advice:'s Alden Gonzalez says the deal is worth $2.8 million. Soto batted .219/.301/.406 with nine home runs this past season for the White Sox while sharing time with Tyler Flowers. He figures to again share a starting job -- this time with Carlos Perez -- in 2016. Tuesday, 4:39 pm
  • Orioles bring back catcher Audry Perez
    Orioles re-signed C Audry Perez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Perez was at Triple-A Norfolk for all of 2015, hitting only .243/.279/.303 with two homers. He'll serve as an extra backstop in spring training. Tuesday, 3:00 pm

  • Braves re-sign Lavarnway to minors deal
    Braves re-signed C Ryan Lavarnway to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Lavarnway played in 27 games with the Braves this past season while batting .227/.311/.394 with two home runs and six RBI over 74 plate appearances. The 28-year-old has a chance to serve as A.J. Pierzynski's backup if the Braves decide to give Christian Bethancourt some time in the minors. Tuesday, 11:16 am

  • Mike Zunino to begin 2016 in minors?
    Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said that Chris Iannetta will serve as the club's "primary catcher" in 2016.

    Advice: That would seem to indicate former top prospect Mike Zunino will begin next season back in the minors. Zunino was sent down to Triple-A in late August last year after hitting an embarrassing .174/.230/.300 over 112 games. Some more seasoning for the 24-year-old probably is the right move. Monday, 4:55 pm
  • John Hicks designated for assignment
    Mariners designated C John Hicks for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Chris Iannetta. Hicks, 26, had just two hits in 32 at-bats in his first taste of the majors this past season. Monday, 3:14 pm

  • Mariners sign Chris Iannetta to one-year deal
    Mariners signed C Chris Iannetta to a one-year contract with a club option for the 2017 season.

    Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says Iannetta will get $4.25 million and have a chance to earn more through incentives. Iannetta had an awful 2015 campaign, hitting just .188/.293/.335 with 10 home runs. However, he has a career .351 on-base percentage and boasts above-average power for a catcher. New Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said that Iannetta will serve as the club's primary catcher, which means Mike Zunino could begin the season back in the minors. Monday, 3:10 pm
  • Clevenger expected to have MLB roster spot
    Steve Clevenger is expected to have an Opening Day roster spot with the Orioles in 2016.

    Advice: Matt Wieters and Caleb Joseph are due back at catcher for the O's, but Clevenger will likely be carried as an emergency backstop, bench bat, and utilityman. The 29-year-old is out of minor league options. He slashed .287/.314/.426 across 105 plate appearances in 2015. Monday, 7:09 am
