    Advice: The 29-year-old southpaw tore his UCL while rehabbing from a second Tommy John surgery, and decided to undergo the procedure for a third time. Venters, who is arbitration eligible this winter, is expected to miss the entirety of the 2015 season. Rotoworld.com

  • Dodgers decline option on Chad Billingsley
    Dodgers declined RHP Chad Billingsley's $14 million option for 2015.

    Advice: They'll instead pay him a $3 million buyout. The veteran right-hander underwent surgery in June to repair a torn flexor tendon in his pitching elbow and is still in the recovery process. He'll explore his options as a free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com

  • Colby Lewis to test out free agency
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Friday that Colby Lewis will test out the free agent market after the two sides were unable to reach a deal.

    Advice: Daniels isn't shutting the door on re-signing Lewis, but the right-hander will now be free to talk to other clubs. Lewis held a 5.18 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 170 1/3 innings this season but pitched pretty well in the second half, posting a 3.86 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. Rotoworld.com

    Mets activated RHP Bobby Parnell from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Parnell blew his elbow out on Opening Day this season and had Tommy John surgery shortly thereafter. He's likely to get a late start to the 2015 season. Rotoworld.com

  • Bruce Rondon activated from 60-day DL
    Tigers activated RHP Bruce Rondon from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Rondon, of course, missed the season following Tommy John surgery, but he's expected to be ready to go for spring training. The Tigers are hoping he'll be able to fill a big role in their bullpen next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Taylor Jordan removed from 60-day DL
    Nationals activated RHP Taylor Jordan from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Jordan missed the last few months of the season before eventually having surgery in September to remove bone chips from his right elbow. He'll be fine for spring training but will likely begin the season at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Erik Davis activated from 60-day DL
    Nationals activated RHP Erik Davis from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Davis missed the season following Tommy John surgery. He'll be behind the other pitchers in spring training, putting him in a difficult spot to make the Opening Day roster. Rotoworld.com

  • Craig Breslow's option decline by Red Sox
    Red Sox declined LHP Craig Breslow's $4 million option for 2015.

    Advice: He'll receive a $100,000 buyout instead. Breslow had a disappointing 5.96 ERA this season after working his way back from a shoulder issue. However, he's been very effective in the past and should bounce back in 2015 as long as he's healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Josh Johnson to test out free agency
    Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Josh Johnson will test out free agency rather than re-sign with the Padres during their exclusive negotiating window.

    Advice: Both sides are interested in working out a new deal, with Johnson saying he feels he has "unfinished business" with the Padres after missing the season following Tommy John surgery. However, it appears that, not surprisingly, the right-hander will give other teams a chance at him before committing to the Padres again. Rotoworld.com

  • Joel Hanrahan activated from 60-day DL
    Tigers activated RHP Joel Hanrahan from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Hanrahan never threw a pitch for the Tigers after signing in May while he worked his way back from Tommy John surgery. He'll be a free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com

  • Gavin Floyd activated from 60-day DL
    Braves activated RHP Gavin Floyd from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Floyd pitched pretty well after returning from Tommy John surgery but unfortunately saw his season cut short due to surgery in June to repair a fractured olecranon in his right elbow. He'll be a free agent this offseason and is expected to be healthy for spring training. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Gregg activated from 60-day DL
    Marlins activated RHP Kevin Gregg from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The 36-year-old pitched just nine innings for Miami this season before having surgery in August to remove bone chips from his elbow. He'll be healthy for spring training but will likely have to take a minor league deal. Rotoworld.com

  • Padres decline Johnson's $4 million option
    Padres decline RHP Josh Johnson's $4 million option for 2015.

    Advice: Johnson, of course, missed the 2014 campaign following Tommy John surgery and could get a late start to next season. However, he and the Padres are both interested in working out a smaller, likely incentive-laden deal. The right-hander has ample upside when healthy, which isn't terribly often. Rotoworld.com

  • Rangers make 'opening offer' to Colby Lewis
    MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers have made an "opening offer" to free agent Colby Lewis.

    Advice: Something should get done before the exclusive negotiating window closes on Monday. Lewis had a rough 5.18 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 170 1/3 innings this season and missed the entire 2013 campaign due to hip surgery, so it's not like he'll be commanding big bucks. The right-hander turned 35 years old in August. Rotoworld.com

  • Taylor Jordan undergoes elbow surgery
    Taylor Jordan underwent surgery last month to remove bone chips from his right elbow.

    Advice: Jordan missed the last few months of the season with elbow issues, so it's no surprise that an operation was needed. The good news is that he's expected to be fine for spring training. He'll likely begin 2015 in the Triple-A rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Breslow expects BoSox to decline option
    Craig Breslow expects the Red Sox to decline his $4 million club option for 2015.

    Advice: It doesn't take a big leap of logic to come to that conclusion, as Breslow posted an ugly 5.96 ERA and 37/28 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings this season. Look for him to receive a $100,000 buyout and hit the free agent market. Rotoworld.com
