    • Kevin Correia more engaged with 3-4 teams
      According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, free agent Kevin Correia has become "more engaged" with 3-4 teams.

      Advice: In other words, he may be getting close to choosing a team. Correia posted a rough 5.44 ERA in 26 starts and three relief appearances this past season between the Dodgers and Twins. He should come very cheap. Rotoworld.com

    • Mariners sign Mark Lowe to minors contract
      Mariners signed RHP Mark Lowe to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

      Advice: Lowe made just seven appearances in 2014, allowing 10 hits and six walks in seven innings for the Indians. The 31-year-old right-hander seems doubtful to crack Seattle's Opening Day bullpen. Rotoworld.com

    • A's DFA right-hander Fernando Rodriguez
      Athletics designated RHP Fernando Rodriguez for assignment.

      Advice: Oakland signed Rodriguez to a one-year deal on December 2, avoiding arbitration, but it was only worth around $100,000 more than the major league minimum. He got bumped from the A's 40-man roster Thursday to clear a spot for new left-hander Eury de la Rosa. Rotoworld.com

      Athletics acquired LHP Eury de la Rosa from the Diamondbacks for cash considerations.

      Advice: The 24-year-old left-hander was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks last week to clear a spot for one of the players Arizona brought back in the Wade Miley trade. He owns a 4.21 ERA in 51 1/3 major league innings but had promising numbers in 2014. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: De Leon was designated for assignment last week to make room on the Athletics' 40-man roster. The 27-year-old reached the majors with the Astros in 2014 and should catch on somewhere as bullpen depth. Rotoworld.com

    • D'Backs avoid arb. with David Hernandez
      Diamondbacks and RHP David Hernandez avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2 million contract.

      Advice: Hernandez underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last April and missed the entire 2014 season, but he should be ready about a month into the 2015 campaign. The 29-year-old reliever was eligible for arbitration for the third and final time. He can become a free agent next offseason. Rotoworld.com

    • Giants re-sign Sergio Romo to two-year deal
      FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that the Giants have re-signed Sergio Romo to a two-year, $15 million deal.

      Advice: Romo had an up-and-down 2014 season, ending the year with a 3.72 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 59/12 K/BB ratio over 58 innings. While he drew interest from multiple big-market teams, he's apparently decided that he's most comfortable remaining with the reigning champs. They'll be getting him on a relatively cheap deal in comparison to other relievers this off-season. Rotoworld.com

    • Red Sox acquire RHP Varvaro from Braves
      Red Sox acquired RHP Anthony Varvaro from the Braves for RHP Aaron Kurcz and cash considerations.

      Advice: Varvaro was designated for assignment by the Braves several days ago. He's been a solid bullpen contributor, posting a 2.99 ERA over 153 appearances in the last four seasons. In 2014, he put up a 2.63 ERA. He should serve as a quality arm and supply the Red Sox with a nice depth piece. Rotoworld.com

    • Siegrist throws from 60 feet in rehab
      Fox Sports' Jim Hayes reports that Kevin Siegrist was "feeling really good" after throwing from 60 feet this week.

      Advice: Siegrist is in the process of rehabbing from various injuries to his throwing arm. The lefty is still a 25-year-old with talent, but the injury-marred 2014 campaign resulted in poor numbers, as he posted a 6.82 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 37 appearances. Rotoworld.com

    • Dodgers place Brandon League on trade block
      FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are talking to teams about a trade involving Brandon League.

      Advice: Rosenthal says that the Dodgers are willing to eat almost half of League's $7.5 million salary for next season in order to move him. League is coming off a nice season, having posted a 2.57 ERA over 63 appearances, so he could draw some interest with the Dodgers paying down part of his contract. Rotoworld.com

    • Nick Maronde designated for assignment
      Indians designated LHP Nick Maronde for assignment.

      Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Gavin Floyd. Acquired from the Angels via trade in July, Maronde held a 7.24 ERA while walking 38 over 41 frames in the minors last season. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Rowen made it up for a cup of coffee in 2014 but spent most of the season at Triple-A, posting a 3.45 ERA and 31/9 K/BB ratio over 47 innings. The submariner holds a 1.72 ERA in his minor league career and could draw some interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Barnes has already been with three different organizations since just before Thanksgiving and it's looking like it will be a fourth. The 27-year-old had a 3.69 ERA and 35/16 K/BB ratio over 31 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level this past season. Rotoworld.com

    • O's to sign Wesley Wright to one-year deal
      Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports that the Orioles have agreed to a one-year contract with Wesley Wright.

      Advice: There's no word yet on the financials of the deal. The O's had been on the lookout for left-handed relief help and Wright should do the job, as he holds a 3.25 ERA while striking out nearly a batter per inning since the beginning of the 2011 season. Rotoworld.com

    • Padres finalize 1-yr, $2.5M deal with Morrow
      Padres signed RHP Brandon Morrow to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

      Advice: Morrow can earn up to $5 million in performance-based bonuses if he's starting and up to $1 million if he's in a relief role. The 30-year-old right-hander was limited to 33 1/3 innings this past season in Toronto because of a finger injury, but he's flashed dominance at times over the course of his eight-year major league career. This could become a good bargain for the Friars. Rotoworld.com

    • Giants ink RHP Partch to minors deal
      Giants signed RHP Curtis Partch to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

      Advice: Partch was non-tendered by the Reds earlier this month after posting a 4.75 ERA and 22/24 K/BB ratio in 30 1/3 innings with the club over the past two seasons. The 27-year-old will try to win a bullpen job in the spring, but will likely begin 2015 in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Brandon McCarthy on the 40-man roster. Wilson exercised his $9.5 million player option for 2015 back in November, but the new Dodgers front office is prepared to eat his salary in order to turn the page. The 32-year-old had a mediocre 4.66 ERA and 54/29 K/BB ratio over 48 1/3 innings this past season. Rotoworld.com

    • McGee to start 2015 on DL after elbow surgery
      Jake McGee underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow last Friday and is expected to begin the 2015 season on the disabled list.

      Advice: Ouch. McGee had a loose body removed from the elbow and the Rays won't have a clear timetable on his return until the spring. It's too bad, as the 28-year-old is coming off an excellent season where he posted a 1.89 ERA with 19 saves and a 90/16 K/BB ratio over 71 1/3 innings. The Rays figure to give Ernesto Frieri a shot at the closer role to begin 2015, but Brad Boxberger and Kevin Jepsen could also be in the mix. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 11:40 am
    • Rays acquire Jepsen from Angels
      Rays acquired RHP Kevin Jepsen from the Angels for OF/DH Matt Joyce.

      Advice: Jepsen is coming off a career-best season where he posted a 2.63 ERA and 75/23 K/BB ratio in 65 innings across 74 appearances. MLB Trade Rumors projects that he'll make around $2.6 million in 2015, his final year of arbitration eligibility. The 30-year-old should be a useful addition for the back-end of the bullpen for Tampa Bay. Rotoworld.com

    • Yankees re-sign Capuano to one-year deal
      Yankees re-signed LHP Chris Capuano to a one-year contract.

      Advice: Capuano posted a 4.25 ERA in 12 starts down the stretch with New York this past season and now he projects to begin 2015 in the starting rotation. His role could change if the Yankees decide to splurge on another pitcher prior to spring training, but the veteran southpaw isn't a terrible placeholder. Rotoworld.com

    • Capuano back with Yanks on 1-yr, $5M deal
      Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees have re-signed Chris Capuano to a one-year, $5 million.

      Advice: Capuano considered a move to Japan this offseason, but he's back with the Yankees as back-end rotation insurance. The 36-year-old posted a 4.25 ERA and 55/19 K/BB ratio in 65 2/3 innings over 12 starts with New York down the stretch in 2014. Rotoworld.com

    • Capuano close to deal with unspecified team
      ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Chris Capuano is close to a deal with an unidentified team.

      Advice: Crasnick adds that the deal isn't with a Japanese team, which is notable given Capuano's previous comments about the possibility. The 36-year-old southpaw held a 4.35 ERA with 84 strikeouts over 97 1/3 innings for the Red Sox and Yankees this past season. He could fit as a starter or a reliever somewhere. Rotoworld.com

    • Morrow's deal with Padres worth $2.5M
      Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that Brandon Morrow's one-year contract with the Padres carries a $2.5 million guarantee.

      Advice: Morrow will have the chance to earn $5 million in bonuses for starting and $1 million for relieving, which gives the Padres some flexibility about his role for 2015. The 30-year-old threw just 33 1/3 innings for the Blue Jays this past season due to a finger injury. Rotoworld.com

    • Padres, Brandon Morrow agree on one-year deal
      Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that the Padres and right-hander Brandon Morrow have agreed to a one-year contract, pending a physical.

      Advice: No word yet on the exact terms involved, but FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that the Padres had offered around $2.5 million plus incentives. Injuries have limited the 30-year-old to just 87 2/3 innings over the past two seasons, but he's immensely talented and PETCO Park is a nice place to attempt to rebuild his value. He'll presumably get a chance to win a rotation spot with the Padres, especially if they end up moving an arm for another bat. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 6:28 am
    • Anthony Varvaro designated for assignment
      Braves designated RHP Anthony Varvaro for assignment.

      Advice: It's a surprise move given Varvaro's 2.99 ERA over 153 relief appearances for the Braves over the last four seasons, including a 2.63 mark last year. The right-hander will either be claimed off waivers or traded. Rotoworld.com

    • Cubs to sign Jason Motte to one-year deal
      Bruce Levine of 670thescore.com reports that the Cubs have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Jason Motte.

      Advice: The deal, which is pending a physical, is worth $4.5 million and contains $2.5 million worth of incentives for games finished. Motte had a rough 2014 season in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, posting a 4.68 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 29 appearances. Still, he's a worthy gamble on a one-year deal in hopes that his pre-surgery velocity returns. Motte held a 2.87 ERA while striking out over a batter per inning in his first five years with the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Varvaro, 30, holds a 2.99 ERA over 153 relief appearances for the Braves over the last four seasons, so he figures to draw some interest on waivers. He posted a 2.63 mark with 50 strikeouts over 54 2/3 frames last season. Rotoworld.com

    • Rangers sign Fujikawa to one-year, $1M deal
      Rangers signed RHP Kyuji Fujikawa to a one-year, $1 million contract.

      Advice: The deal includes a club option for 2016. Fujikawa had an ugly 4.85 ERA and 1.85 WHIP in 15 relief appearances this past season for the Cubs, but he should be better in 2015 as he moves further away from Tommy John elbow surgery. The 34-year-old could eventually work his way into a setup role in Texas. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 7:01 am
    • Rangers agree to deal with Kyuji Fujikawa
      According to Bernie Pleskoff of MLB.com, the Rangers have agreed to a deal with Kyuji Fujikawa.

      Advice: Financial terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed and Fujikawa must still pass his physical. Provided he's healthy, the 34-year-old hurler could find his way into a setup role in front of Neftali Feliz in the Rangers bullpen. It's a nice low-cost signing for the Rangers. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 5:40 pm
    • Padres make one-year offer to Brandon Morrow
      Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Padres have made a one-year incentive-laden offer to free agent hurler Brandon Morrow.

      Advice: If there was ever a perfect place for Morrow to spend a season and attempt to rebuild his value, the friendly confines of Petco Park would certainly be it. The 30-year-old has dealt with a wide array of injuries the past few years, logging only 87 2/3 innings the past two seasons. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 5:31 pm
    • Eury de la Rosa designated for assignment
      Diamondbacks designated LHP Eury de la Rosa for assignment.

      Advice: With the Wade Miley deal bringing back three players from the Red Sox, the D'Backs needed to clear room on the 40-man roster and de la Rosa was the casualty. The 24-year-old did a nice job out of the bullpen for the Snakes in 2014, posting a 2.95 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 32/14 K/BB ratio in 36 2/3 innings. He shouldn't be looking for work for long.

      Friday, 5:10 pm
    • Rangers working on deal with Kyuji Fujikawa
      TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are working on a deal with free agent right-hander Kyuji Fujikawa.

      Advice: Sullivan notes that the deal would be pending a physical, as Fujikawa is working his way back from elbow surgery. His two years in Chicago were plagued by injuries and disappointment, posting a 5.04 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 25 innings. If healthy, the 34-year-old could be a nice addition to the Rangers bullpen.

    • Sergio Romo signing coming soon
      Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Sergio Romo is expected to sign "hopefully in the next few days."

      Advice: Romo has drawn interest from Dodgers, Yankees and Red Sox and the Giants haven't given up hope to re-sign him. The 31-year-old lost his closer job in 2014 but still wound up having a fine year, posting a 3.72 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 59/12 K/BB ratio over 58 innings. Based on the teams with interest in him, it appears Romo is likely looking at a setup role next season. Rotoworld.com

      Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com writes that reliever Kevin Jepsen is "in play" in potential trades.

      Advice: The Angels are searching for a middle infielder at the moment, so one wonders if Jepsen will be dealt as part of the return. The 30-year-old is out of options going into 2015. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 12:03 pm
    • Dodgers, Yankees, Red Sox in on Romo
      ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Dodgers, Yankees, and Red Sox all have interest in free agent reliever Sergio Romo.

      Advice: And the Giants are also interested in bringing him back. Romo struggled in the early part of 2014 before losing his grip on the closer role, but he pitched well down the stretch and should be able to find a multi-year deal, especially with these teams involved. Relievers are doing very well in free agency right now. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Romo was also talking with the Astros, but he'll have to look elsewhere now that the club has reportedly signed both Luke Gregerson and Pat Neshek. With the money being thrown around to relievers, the 31-year-old should do well for himself in free agency, even though his ERA has increased in each of the past three seasons. Rotoworld.com

      Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros have had discussions with the representatives of Sergio Romo and Luke Gregerson.

      Advice: The Astros missed out on both Andrew Miller and David Robertson, but they remain intent on signing at least one reliever. Landing in Houston would be good for the fantasy prospects of either Romo or Gregerson, as they'd both likely be the first option to close. Gregerson will reportedly get at least a three-year deal.

      Advice: Injuries have limited the 30-year-old Morrow to just 87 2/3 innings over the past two seasons. He still has plenty of upside if healthy, but it's hard to count on him. He'll likely have to settle for an incentive-laden contract. Rotoworld.com

The 27-year-old had a 3.69 ERA and 35/16 K/BB ratio over 31 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level this past season and appeared in 22 games in the majors from 2012-2013. Rotoworld.com
