  • Rays narrow managerial choices down to three
    The Rays have narrowed down their managerial search to three finalists: Kevin Cash, Raul Ibanez and Don Wakamatsu.

    Advice: Wakamatsu is the only one of the trio who has previous experience as a major league manager. The surprise in this announcement, is that bench coach Dave Martinez, who was widely considered to be the favorite for the gig, wasn't even among the finalists. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Kemp drawing significant trade interest
    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that Matt Kemp is drawing significant trade interest in outfielder Matt Kemp.

    Advice: While the Dodgers would much rather prefer to trade Carl Crawford or Andre Ethier to free up the logjam in their outfield, they would certainly get a much better return package if unloading Kemp. They would also be free of the five years and $107 million remaining on Kemp's contract through 2019, which would allow them to be even more aggressive on the free agent market. If Kemp is indeed dealt, Joc Pederson could take over the reigns in center field. Rotoworld.com

  • Lester to meet with two more teams next week
    Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that Jon Lester is scheduled to meet with at least two teams next week.

    Advice: Lester met with Red Sox, Cubs and Braves this week. The Cardinals have been mentioned as one potential landing spot for Lester, so they could be one of the clubs the left-hander visits next week. The Red Sox reportedly have offered Lester a six-year deal in the $110-120 million range. Rotoworld.com

  • 'Increasingly likely' Miller gets four years
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that it's "increasingly likely" Andrew Miller will get a four-year contract.

    Advice: Morosi says that Miller "already has multiple offers of at least three years," so it appears a team might have to guarantee a fourth year to push them over the top. He also notes that Miller is expected to eclipse the previous high-water mark for a reliever with no closing experience, which currently sits at $6 million per season. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported last week that Miller was receiving interest from 22 teams. Rotoworld.com

  • Padres preparing to make offer to Sandoval
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Padres will make a contract off to Pablo Sandoval on Friday.

    Advice: No word yet on what the terms might be, but it will have to at least be $90+ million in order to be competitive with what the Red Sox and Giants are reportedly willing to spend. It was Rosenthal who reported earlier Friday that new Padres GM A.J. Preller has been "working feverishly" and prepared to go in a variety of directions this offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays place Matt Joyce on trade block
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Rays have made Matt Joyce available for trade.

    Advice: It's not surprising, as the Rays are in cost-cutting mode and Joyce is due another raise in what will be his final year of arbitration. The 30-year-old's OPS has been in a steady decline the last few years, bottoming out in 2014 at .732 when he hit just nine homers. Still, he can be a useful bat and the Rays should be able to find a taker for him. Rotoworld.com

  • Manny Acta out of running for Rays' job
    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Manny Acta is out of the running for the Rays' manager job.

    Advice: He has the most big league managerial experience of anyone who interviewed, but the Rays have decided to pass. Acta and Craig Counsell have now been crossed off the list, and the Rays reportedly have narrowed their search down to three names. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies haven't ruled out re-signing Anderson
    Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies are interested in re-signing Brett Anderson.

    Advice: They declined his $12 million option for 2015 but would be willing to bring him back at a lesser rate. Anderson has plenty of upside when healthy, but he simply hasn't been able to take the mound regularly, making just 19 starts over the last three seasons. The Royals and Astros have also expressed interest in the lefty. Rotoworld.com

  • Yankees discussing Jason Grilli internally
    WFAN's Sweeny Murti reports that the Yankees have internally discussed Jason Grilli as a possible bullpen target.

    Advice: Grilli would be a backup option if they're not able to re-sign Robertson, as he could set up and Dellin Betances could slide into the closer role. The 38-year-old posted a 4.00 ERA with 57 strikeouts over 54 innings for the Pirates and Angels this past season. Rotoworld.com

  • Tigers ink Xavier Avery to minors deal
    Tigers signed OF Xavier Avery to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Avery spent all of the 2014 season at Triple-A with the Mariners, batting .275/.344/.413 with 10 homers and 31 steals. He lands in a good spot, as the Tigers' center field job is in flux, but ultimately he's unlikely to get much of an opportunity at the big league level in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    Nationals signed RHP Bruce Billings to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Billings made it up to the majors briefly this past season but spent most of the year at Triple-A with the Yankees and Dodgers, posting a 5.27 ERA over 95 2/3 innings. He'll likely be part of Triple-A Syracuse's rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves expected to trade Justin Upton
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post was told by an executive that Justin Upton "will be moved" this offseason.

    Advice: The Braves dealt Jason Heyward earlier this week, but they don't plan to stop there. Like Heyward, Upton is set for free agency after next season, and the interest in him, according to Sherman, is "significant." Sherman adds that the price is steep, with the Braves looking for a bigger package than it took to land Heyward. The Mariners have long had interest in Upton and would appear to be a fit.

  • 'Plenty of interest' in David Ross
    Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that there has been "plenty of interest" in David Ross.

    Advice: However, he adds that there's "nothing imminent" in terms of Ross signing on somewhere. The veteran catcher batted just .184/.260/.368 in 50 games this past season, but his bat has been more potent in the past and he's well-regarded as a receiver and clubhouse guy. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays get Jose Dominguez from Dodgers
    Rays acquired RHPs Jose Dominguez and Greg Harris from the Dodgers in exchange for RHP Joel Peralta and LHP Adam Liberatore.

    Advice: Dominguez hasn't fared well in his brief time in the majors, but he can touch triple-digits on the radar gun, which obviously makes him quite appealing. He should crack the Rays' Opening Day bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • Dodgers get Peralta from TB in 4-player deal
    Dodgers acquired RHP Joel Peralta and LHP Adam Liberatore from the Rays in exchange for RHPs Jose Dominguez and Greg Harris.

    Advice: The Rays exercised Peralta's $2.5 million option for 2015 earlier this month (he has $2.5 million club options for 2016 and 2017, as well) but have now decided to deal him for a bit of payroll space. The 38-year-old put up a 3.58 ERA and 293/84 K/BB ratio over 269 1/3 frames the last four years for the Rays and will work in a setup role for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves don't make offer to Jon Lester
    David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Braves did not make an offer to Jon Lester during their meeting Thursday.

    Advice: Braves president of baseball operations John Hart conceded Thursday that it was a "long shot" that they could afford Lester. It's possible an offer could still be forthcoming, or they could have just decided after meeting with the left-hander that they simply couldn't afford him. The common thought is that it will come down to the Red Sox and Cubs. Rotoworld.com

  • Longoria (forearm) homers in return to lineup
    Evan Longoria (forearm) returned to the starting lineup for the MLB All-Stars Thursday in Japan.

    Advice: Longoria made an early exit from Monday's game in Tokyo after being hit on the left forearm by a pitch, but that was merely a precautionary move. He hit a home run Thursday in the final game of the 10-day tour. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves meeting Thursday with SP Jon Lester
    Jayson Stark of ESPN confirms that the Braves are meeting Thursday with free agent left-hander Jon Lester.

    Advice: "Is it a long shot? Yeah, it's a long shot," acknowledged Braves president of baseball operations John Hart. "(But) we're keeping all the doors open." Lester reportedly received a six-year offer worth around $110-120 million earlier this week from the Red Sox, and he's also said to be drawing interest from the Cubs and Cardinals. The 30-year-old registered a 2.46 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 220/48 K/BB ratio in 219 2/3 innings this past season between Boston and Oakland. Rotoworld.com

  • Cafardo: Jays expected to bid for Sandoval
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe said the Blue Jays are expected to make an offer to free agent Pablo Sandoval by Thursday.

    Advice: To this point the heavy interest in Sandoval has been limited to the Giants and Red Sox, so it will be interesting to see what the emergence of the Jays does to the process. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal notes that the Jays have a strict policy that limits them to a maximum of five years on free agent deals, meaning the club could be forced to overpay for Sandoval's services. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports said Sandoval will get at least five years from whichever team he signs with. Rotoworld.com

  • Red Sox 'willing to negotiate' with Lester
    A source tells Rob Bradford of WEEI.com that the Red Sox have shown a "willingness to negotiate" with free agent Jon Lester.

    Advice: It was reported that the club made an offer in the range of $110-120 million over six years earlier this week. That's significantly higher than the four-year, $70 million offer the BoSox were reported to have extended to Lester in spring, and it appears they would be open to going even higher if necessary. The team isn't alone in its pursuit of the 30-year-old, as the Cubs, Braves and Cardinals have all been linked to Lester in recent days as well. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Red Sox offering Lester $110-120M
    According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Red Sox's offer to free agent Jon Lester "falls into the $110-120 million range over six years."

    Advice: Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston said Wednesday morning that the Red Sox are not expecting a quick decision from Lester, who can shop this proposal around to other teams to jack up the price. The 30-year-old left-hander is also believed to be drawing serious interest from the Cubs, Braves, and Cardinals. He had a 2.46 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 220/48 K/BB ratio in 219 2/3 innings this past season between Boston and Oakland. Rotoworld.com

  • Pablo Sandoval will get at least five years
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Pablo Sandoval "will get at least a five-year deal, if not six or seven."

    Advice: ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported Tuesday that Sandoval had been discussing deals in the five-year, $80-90 million range, but Heyman says he's holding out for a nine-figure deal and it sounds like he might get it. Sandoval is on his way to San Francisco after finishing his visit with the Red Sox, who are expected to make an offer by Thursday. He'll likely wind up choosing between those two teams, though Heyman doesn't discount the possibility of others getting involved. He mentions the Marlins as a potential dark horse but says there's no word whether they've had contact with Sandoval's camp. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: It's not clear what the offer is or if it's their final one, but either way Edes says the club is not expecting a quick decision from the left-hander. The Cubs are generally viewed as the Red Sox' biggest competitors for Lester, with the Braves and Cardinals are also reportedly interested. Rotoworld.com

    Pablo Sandoval and the Red Sox met for a second time Tuesday evening, according to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish.

    Advice: It's unclear what the nature of the second meeting is, but ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported earlier Tuesday that "things could come together quickly" and the Red Sox are a "very serious player." A second meeting in one day would seem to corroborate that idea. Sandoval's suitors are down to the Giants and the Red Sox, so a decision one way or the other could come soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Cardinals joining pursuit of SP Jon Lester?
    According to Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM, the Cardinals have joined the Jon Lester sweepstakes.

    Advice: St. Louis has six legitimate starting pitchers between Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha, Lance Lynn, John Lackey, Carlos Martinez, and Marco Gonzales, but Waino recently underwent elbow surgery and Wacha dealt with shoulder problems throughout 2014, so maybe there's some fire to this smoke. Lester is also being courted by the Red Sox, Cubs, and Braves. The 30-year-old left-hander had a 2.46 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 220/48 K/BB ratio in 219 2/3 innings this past season between Boston and Oakland. Rotoworld.com

    Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros have checked in on Brett Anderson.

    Advice: Drellich notes that Anderson is a Houston native and fits the Astros' desire for a high-upside free agent starter who should come cheap. The Rockies declined a $12 million option on the 26-year-old left-hander after he made just eight starts in 2014 due to yet another string of injuries. Anderson owns a 3.73 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 494 career major league innings. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Crasnick adds that "things could come together quickly" with Sandoval and that the Red Sox are a "very serious player." The feeling for a while now has been that Kung Fu Panda was likely to either re-sign with San Francisco or head east to Boston. It appears that a decision could come before Thanksgiving.

  • Jon Lester has meeting this week with Braves
    ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Braves have a meeting scheduled with Jon Lester this week.

    Advice: Atlanta acquired pitching help in the form of Shelby Miller on Monday, and it appears they will at least entertain the possibility of signing Lester. The left-hander will undoubtedly get a contract well north of $100 million, and it remains to be seen if the Braves will realistically go that high. The Cubs and Red Sox at this point appear to be the primary contenders for Lester's services. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves could still trade J. Upton, Gattis
    MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports that the Braves "might both be traded at some point this winter."

    Advice: The Braves sent Jason Heyward to the Cardinals on Monday in a blockbuster deal, but Bowman says the club is "definitely not done moving some of their guys." Upton has one more year before free agency and would surely bring more in return, so he could be likelier to be moved. It appears the Braves might be gearing more towards 2017 when their new ballpark opens rather than trying to compete in 2015 with a roster that simply doesn't stack up with the Nationals.

    Sportsnet's Jeff Blair reports that the Blue Jays are being "very aggressive" in their pursuit of Andrew Miller.

    Advice: Blair was told this by a source from a team that's competing with the Jays and others for Miller's services. Miller would likely close with Toronto with Casey Janssen expected to depart as a free agent. The left-hander doesn't have experience in the ninth inning but nonetheless is going to be paid like the elite reliever he is. Rotoworld.com

Preller so this derby could get interesting. The White Sox and Blue Jays have also been linked to Sandoval, who is thought to be seeking a six-year contract worth around $100 million.

  • Red Sox want weight clauses in Sandoval deal
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox plan to include bonuses to stay within a certain weight range in the contract they offer Pablo Sandoval.

    Advice: It seems likely that whoever signs Sandoval will include such clauses. Cafardo was told by a Giants official that Sandoval lost 30 pounds last offseason, only to gain 20 of it back during the season. Sandoval will arrive in Boston on Monday night and the Red Sox "will begin seriously recruiting" him on Tuesday. While the White Sox and Blue Jays have expressed interest in the third baseman, most feel he'll either sign with the Red Sox or re-sign with the Giants. Rotoworld.com

The team will now likely narrow its list and conduct another round of interviews before settling on a successor for Joe Maddon.

The Royals do appear to at least be checking in on most situations, as they're also in on Yosmany Tomas. However, they probably can't realistically expect sign any marquee free agent.

    According to Jon Heyman on Twitter, 22 teams have shown interest in relief pitcher Andrew Miller.

    Advice: Heyman noted that the "rumored Cubs" probably won't be the ones to sign him, as "[they] are only looking to lengthen their pen." Miller is one of the top relief arms on the market and the 29-year-old is reportedly looking for somewhere in the ballpark of a four-year deal. Since turning fully over to reliever, Miller has a 2.57 ERA and a 14.6 K/9. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Andrew Miller seeking four-year deal
    According to Jason Mastrodonato of MassLive.com, free agent reliever Andrew Miller is "seeking at least a four-year deal."

    Advice: Mastrodonato also quoted his industry source as saying the average annual value (AAV) of a deal shorter than four years would need to be "astounding" for him to consider it. A four-year deal would be largely unprecedented for a non-closer, even one with Miller's pedigree. The 29-year-old lefty has a 2.57 ERA and 14.6 K/9 since converting to relief full-time in 2012. A huge group of teams, including the Red Sox, are reportedly interested in acquiring Miller's services. Rotoworld.com

    Andrew Miller's agent, Mark Rodgers, was scheduled to meet with the Red Sox on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rodgers told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe that he saved the Red Sox for his final meeting with teams. Miller seems to be drawing interest from just about every front office in baseball after posting a terrific 2.02 ERA and 103/17 K/BB ratio in 62 1/3 innings this past season between Boston and Baltimore. Some clubs are said to be viewing him as an option at closer. Rotoworld.com

  • Miller's agent says his client could close
    Andrew Miller's agent, Mark Rodgers, told Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com that his client is drawing interest from teams in need of a closer.

    Advice: "I think Andrew's evolution in the bullpen and his numbers this year fortify the belief in baseball that he's a closer-in-waiting -- and maybe the time for waiting is over," said Rogers. While Rogers didn't mention who could be in the mix for his client, the Yankees, Red Sox, and Dodgers are among the teams in the market for late-inning help. Rogers didn't rule out the possibility that Miller could sign somewhere as a set-up man or a Plan B for an established closer. Of course, the money will likely dictate where he will go. Miller, 29, had an outstanding 2.02 ERA with a 103/17 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings this past season between the Red Sox and Orioles. Rotoworld.com

    Bruce Levine of 670 The Score reports that the White Sox and Cubs are among the clubs interested in signing free agent reliever Andrew Miller.

    Advice: It seems like just about every team in baseball is chasing Miller, who registered an outstanding 2.02 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, and 103/17 K/BB ratio across 62 1/3 innings this past season between the Red Sox and Orioles. The 29-year-old left-hander should hit it big on a market that is flush with cash. His free agency is not tied to draft pick compensation. Rotoworld.com

  • Royals to meet with Brett Anderson this week
    Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star hears that the Royals are expected to meet with the representatives for Brett Anderson this week.

    Advice: Anderson became a free agent this month after the Rockies bought out his $12 million option for 2015 for $1.5 million. The injury-plagued southpaw had a 2.91 ERA across eight starts this season and could be an interesting gamble for someone. Rotoworld.com
