  • Lester not expected to make decision soon
    Rob Bradford of WEEI reports that Jon Lester isn't expected to make a decision anytime soon on where he'll sign.

    Advice: Lester is still said to be early in the free agent process and is still meeting with interested teams. The Red Sox remain optimistic at a reunion with the prized left-hander, though the Cubs, Braves, Giants and Cardinals are among many others interested in his services. Rotoworld.com

  • Capuano considering pitching in Japan
    Chris Capuano said during an interview with MLB Network Radio on Tuesday that he is considering signing a Japanese team.

    Advice: This confirms reports out of Japan from earlier this month. "There's a lot of truth to it," said Capuano." It piqued my interest back in '06... we're considering it." 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. It could be difficult for him to find a guaranteed spot in a starting rotation in MLB, so an opportunity in Japan could be more appealing. Rotoworld.com

  • Heyman: Giants initiated talks with Scherzer
    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports the Giants have initiated talks with a number of free agents, including Max Scherzer.

    Advice: In the wake of losing Pablo Sandoval to the Red Sox, the Giants have "cast a wide net" in looking for an impact signing. Jon Lester, Nelson Cruz, Nick Markakis and Chase Headley are other free agents Heyman lists as options, as well as Braves outfielder Justin Upton. Scherzer's market is wide open at this point and probably won't be settled anytime soon. The Nationals and Tigers are some clubs who have been linked. Rotoworld.com

  • Sox owner Henry optimistic on signing Lester
    Red Sox owner John Henry said he's optimistic about the team signing free agent Jon Lester.

    Advice: "I am. I'm hopeful," Henry said. He has also said the team won't be concerned about exceeding the $189 million luxury tax to improve the ballclub. The Red Sox just announced the Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez signings Tuesday, but it appears that won't preclude them from pursuing Lester. The Cubs, Braves, Giants and Cardinals are also rumored to be involved. Rotoworld.com

  • Yu Darvish (elbow) cleared to begin throwing
    Yu Darvish (elbow) has been cleared for throwing.

    Advice: Darvish underwent a checkup MRI on his right elbow Tuesday in Arlington, Texas and it showed no remaining inflammation. He'll spend the next several weeks working out in the Dallas area and should be 100 percent for the beginning of the 2015 season. Darvish was limited to 144 1/3 innings in 2014 after throwing 209 2/3 innings in 2013. Rotoworld.com

  • Harrell agrees to $900K contract in Korea
    Lucas Harrell has agreed to a one-year, $900,000 contract with Korea's LG Twins.

    Advice: The 29-year-old right-hander had a 9.49 ERA in three starts this past season with the Astros and likely would have had to settle for a non-guaranteed minor league contract had he remained in the United States. Harrell may try to return to MLB if things go well for him next season in the Korean Baseball Organization. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Cubs offer Lester 'north of' $135M
    David Kaplan of CSNChicago.com reports that the Cubs have offered free agent left-hander Jon Lester a six-year deal worth "north of" $135 million.

    Advice: This is the biggest reported offer to Lester thus far, topping the six-year, $110-120 million offer he reportedly received from the Red Sox. This is shaping up to be more than a two-team race, as the Braves, Giants, and Cardinals are also involved. In fact, Kaplan pegs the Giants as a serious threat. Perhaps something close to a $25 million AAV isn't so far-fetched after all. Rotoworld.com

  • Twins outright RHP Swarzak to Triple-A
    Twins sent RHP Anthony Swarzak outright to Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: The move clears him from the 40-man roster. Swarzak, 29, had a 4.60 ERA and 47/28 K/BB ratio in 86 innings over 46 relief appearances and four starts this past season. He can reject the minor league assignment and become a free agent. Rotoworld.com

  • Lester expected to exceed $25M AAV
    Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports that Jon Lester's AAV (average annual value) is expected to exceed $25 million per season when he signs with a team.

    Advice: That's a lot of dough. Only three pitchers (Felix Hernandez, Justin Verlander, and Clayton Kershaw) have ever signed a contract with an AAV of $25 million or more. Lester has reportedly received a six-year offer from the Red Sox worth between $110-120 million, but it sounds like he'll end up getting more before all is said and done. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Daisuke Matsuzaka to return to Japan
    According to the Japan Times, Daisuke Matsuzaka is expected to return to Japan to pitch for the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks.

    Advice: The deal isn't official yet, but it appears to be a forgone conclusion. "Pitchers who can start are a valuable commodity, so we will do our best to get him," said team president Yoshimitsu Goto. "We hope to get this done in the coming days." Matsuzaka, now 34, last pitched in Japan in 2006 before leaving to sign with the Red Sox. Rotoworld.com

  • White Sox designate Carroll for assignment
    White Sox designated RHP Scott Carroll for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Adam LaRoche on the 40-man roster. Carroll, 29, had a 4.80 ERA and 64/45 K/BB ratio in 129 1/3 innings across 19 starts and seven relief appearances this past season. There's not much upside here, but he could draw some interest from other teams. Rotoworld.com

  • Marlins called Tigers about Price, Porcello
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that that the Marlins have called the Tigers to inquire about the availability of David Price and Rick Porcello.

    Advice: Talks are not believed to be serious, so it might have simply been a matter of due diligence. Still, it makes sense that the Marlins would at least call. Price and Porcello can both become free agents after 2015, so Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski could be willing to be creative. Rotoworld.com

  • Lester draws serious interest from five teams
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that there are at least five teams "seriously interested" in free agent left-hander Jon Lester.

    Advice: While the money will obviously be an important factor in his decision, Lester also values comfort. This could give an edge to the Red Sox or the Braves in his adopted hometown of Atlanta. The Cubs, Giants, and Cardinals are also believed to be in the mix. The Red Sox have reportedly offered Lester a six-year deal worth between $110 and $120 million and Heyman hears that they could be willing to go to $130 million to get a deal done. Rotoworld.com

  • Jon Lester to visit with Cardinals next week
    Peter Gammons of GammonsDaily.com reports that Jon Lester plans to visit with the Cardinals next week.

    Advice: Gammons adds that Lester "perhaps" could then make a decision at the end of that week ahead of the Winter Meetings. Most have viewed the Cubs and Red Sox as the favorites to sign the left-hander, but the Cards, Braves, Giants, Blue Jays and Royals have also expressed interest. Part of the appeal with Lester is that it won't cost a team a draft pick to sign him. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies among teams interested in Correia
    Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Rockies are among a "group of teams" showing early interest in free agent right-hander Kevin Correia.

    Advice: Correia, 34, had a rough 5.44 ERA over 26 starts and six relief appearances this season between the Twins and Dodgers. He has decent career numbers at Coors Field, but things probably wouldn't get much better with a move to Colorado. Rotoworld.com

  • Dodgers among teams in pursuit of Hamels
    Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports the Dodgers have joined the pursuit of Phillies starter Cole Hamels.

    Advice: That pursuit includes the Red Sox, who Nightengale earlier Monday classified as having "had the most serious talks" regarding Hamels. The Dodgers have the prospects and the payroll muscle to get a deal done, and Hamels would certainly strengthen a rotation that already includes Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Dan Haren. If the Phillies do decide to deal their ace, they appear to be in a good position to do so. Rotoworld.com

  • Dodgers pick up ex-Rockies' hurler Nicasio
    Dodgers acquired RHP Juan Nicasio from the Rockies for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

    Advice: Colorado designated Nicasio for assignment last week, allowing new Dodgers' honcho Andrew Friedman to swoop in and acquire him at a (presumed) discount. However it turns out, consider it a worthwhile gamble. Yes, Nicasio has posted an ugly career ERA of 5.03 over four seasons in the majors. That number, of course, was compiled in Coors Field. Nicasio, the owner of a nice right arm, still retains a little upside, and has already proven, by the age of 28, to be capable of both starting and pitching out of the bullpen. In Los Angeles, he'll be a swing man, and a possible possessor of NL-only intrigue at some point in 2015 if the Dodgers suffer rotational injuries. Rotoworld.com

  • Red Sox still 'very much engaged' on Lester
    Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox are "still very much engaged" with Jon Lester.

    Advice: The Sox have signed both Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval in the last 12-24 hours, but they're apparently not done spending in this market. Lester is also drawing serious interest from the Cubs and Braves, and the Giants, Cardinals, Blue Jays, and Royals have also been linked. The 30-year-old left-hander 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

  • BoSox have had most serious talks for Hamels
    USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Red Sox "have had the most serious talks" with the Phillies regarding a trade for ace Cole Hamels.

    Advice: Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reported a few weeks ago that the Red Sox had already rejected a couple of trade proposals from the Phillies, but the dynamic has changed now that the Sox have signed both Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval. It's easy to make matches between Boston's surpluses and Philly's needs. Hamels, 30, is owed $96 million over the next four seasons with a $24 million option for 2019, but that's not terrible money in this market for a starter of his caliber. Rotoworld.com

  • Giants could be in play for FA SP Jon Lester
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Giants' savings on Pablo Sandoval "could put them in play" for free agent starter Jon Lester.

    Advice: Sandoval is reportedly headed to Boston (along with Hanley Ramirez) on a five-year deal worth around $100 million. That has left the defending World Series-champion Giants scrambling to reload -- Cuban defector Yasmany Tomas is known to be a target, and Rosenthal suggests that third baseman Chase Headley might become an option to take over for Sandoval at third base. Lester would obviously be a fantastic addition to the San Francisco pitching staff. The Cubs, Braves, Red Sox, Cardinals, Blue Jays, and Royals are also believed to have serious interest.

  • Marlins reportedly kicking tires on Miley
    According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Marlins have discussed the possibility of trading for LHP Wade Miley.

    Advice: The Marlins are in the market for a veteran starter and could potentially trade Nathan Eovaldi (4.37 ERA in 199+ innings in 2014) or another pitching prospect. Last season with the Diamondbacks, Miley was 8-12 with a 4.34 ERA and a 183/75 K/BB ratio in 201+ innings. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The three teams known to have met with the free agent are the Red Sox, Cubs and Braves. Rosenthal also wrote that the Cardinals, Blue Jays and Royals "have interest" in Lester. He speculated that the Yankees could possibly jump into the mix, but at this point, that's just speculation. The Red Sox reportedly offered Lester a six-year deal worth between $110 and $120 million.

    Advice: The 30-year-old southpaw posted a 6.75 ERA over 56 innings of work at Triple-A Las Vegas in 2014. Given the Rockies struggles both in the rotation and the bullpen, it would be surprising to see him not get a shot at some point during the 2015 season. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Lester met with Red Sox, Cubs and Braves this week.

  • 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

  • Jameson Taillon added to 40-man roster
    Pirates purchased the contract of RHP Jameson Taillon from Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Dodgers purchased the contract of RHP Zach Lee from Triple-A Albuquerque.

  • Report: Nationals could target Scherzer
    Major league sources told MLB Daily Dish that if the Nationals trade Jordan Zimmermann or Doug Fister, it could open up room to sign Max Scherzer.

    Advice: Earlier on Thursday, it was reported by Bob Nightengale of USA Today that the Nationals were looking to move Doug Fister. Zimmermann also told the Washington Post that he had not had discussions about a contract extension with the team. Should either Fister or Zimmermann (or both) be shipped out of town, it's possible that it would free up room for the Nationals to target Max Scherzer. Scherzer's most likely landing place is probably back with the Tigers, while the Yankees have also been mentioned, though only as lurkers. For now. Rotoworld.com

  • Doug Fister 'available if deal makes sense'
    Doug Fister "is available if a deal makes sense," according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

    Advice: Fister is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2015 season, so the Nats are dangling him on the trade market in the event that they're presented with an attractive return package. They're doing the same with Jordan Zimmermann, who is also entering his contract year. Fister, 30, posted a stellar 2.41 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 164 innings this past season for Washington.

  • Yankees unlikely to make run at Max Scherzer
    Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that the Yankees "have not abandoned their plan to stay away from the top batch of free agents."

    Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported on Monday that while the Yanks are mostly shopping for second- and third-tier free agents, they may make an exception when it comes to Max Scherzer. But, while you can never officially rule the Bombers out for a free agent until they sign elsewhere, it doesn't appear at this time that they'll deviate from their plan for anyone. Feinsand says the Yanks have spoken to Scherzer's agent, Scott Boras, but that conversation was likely about another client, Stephen Drew. 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

    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Max Scherzer is the one marquee free agent the Yankees are "seriously considering."

    Advice: Heyman says the Yankees "have had brief contact" with Scherzer's agent, Scott Boras, since the GM Meetings, and the club "may revisit their inclination not to make any big expenditures this winter." The Yankees' rotation is loaded with question marks, so they'll have to bring in someone. They also have interest in re-signing Brandon McCarthy. Scherzer's market has been slow to develop thus far, which is no surprise for a Boras client. Rotoworld.com

    Nikkan Sports in Japan reports that Chris Capuano is in talks with two Nippon Professional Baseball clubs.

    Advice: It's not clear whether a deal is close to going down, but it appears Capuano has chosen to head overseas rather than accept what might be a minor league deal in the states. The left-hander put up a 4.35 ERA with 84 strikeouts over 97 1/3 innings for the Red Sox and Yankees this past season. He turned 36 in August. Rotoworld.com

  • Tigers still expected to be in on Scherzer
    In an interview with MLB Network Radio on Sunday, super agent Scott Boras indicated that he still expects the Tigers to be in on Max Scherzer.

    Advice: Boras didn't quite come out and say it, but hasn't heard anything to indicate that they are out on the All-Star right-hander. With an owner willing to spend money, there's reason to believe that the $144 million extension offer the Tigers made to Scherzer during the season is still on the table. Rotoworld.com

  • Cafardo: Red Sox reject Phils' Hamels offers
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox have rejected "a couple" trade proposals from the Phillies involving Cole Hamels.

    Advice: It's not clear what the offers were, but Cafardo expects the Phillies to re-open trade talks with the Red Sox soon. Philly is looking to clean house this winter, and by far their best trade chip is Hamels, who has a relatively reasonable contract and won't come cheaply. In addition to the Red Sox, the Cubs and Blue Jays are two other clubs known to have interest in the left-hander. Rotoworld.com
