    • Stephen Vogt has walking boot removed
      Stephen Vogt had the walking boot removed from his surgically-repaired right foot Thursday.

      Advice: Vogt had surgery in October to repair the plantar plates in his foot. It's an injury he dealt with throughout the second half of the season and he noted Thursday that it's the first time since July he can put a shoe on his right foot and walk without any pain. Vogt will be fine for the start of spring training. Rotoworld.com

    • Mariners re-sign infielder Carlos Rivero
      Mariners re-signed 3B Carlos Rivero to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

      Advice: Rivero was non-tendered by the M's earlier this month, but he's now back with the organization on a non-guaranteed minor league deal. The 26-year-old infielder spent most of the 2014 season between Double-A and Triple-A, hitting .264/.324/.379 in 105 games. Rotoworld.com

    • BoSox in 'active' talks for Allen Craig trade
      According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Red Sox are in "active" Allen Craig trade talks with at least one team.

      Advice: Craig batted just .128/.234/.191 in 107 plate appearances after the July 31 trade that sent he and Joe Kelly from the Cardinals to the Red Sox for John Lackey. Craig hasn't been the same since suffering a Lisfranc foot injury late in the 2013 season and he's owed $26.5 million over the next three years. Boston probably won't be able to get much in return.

    • Marlins finalize contract with Michael Morse
      Marlins signed 1B/OF Michael Morse to a two-year, $16 million contract.

      Advice: Morse hit .279/.336/.475 with 16 homers and 61 RBI in 131 games for the Giants last season. While he is 32 years old, Morse has shown a consistent bat when he's healthy and at a cheap price, he should provide nice numbers and veteran leadership for a Marlins offense that's coming together this off-season.

    • Longoria not currently in Rays' trade talks
      Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reported that neither Ben Zobrist nor Evan Longoria have been part of the Rays' trade discussions.

      Advice: The Rays are looking at Nationals' outfielder Steven Souza as they work to complete a trade of Wil Myers to the Padres, but for the time being, it seems that they are more likely to trade out of prospect depth than they are to trade from their stable of major league talent. Longoria is the face of the franchise and while the Rays have shown a willingness to move any talent in the right deal, it would probably take quite a bit to bid farewell to their perennial All Star.

    • Angels' negotiations with Beckham stall
      The Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reported that negotiations between the Angels and INF Gordon Beckham are not currently progressing.

      Advice: Fletcher wrote that the Angels were still looking to bring back Beckham. The most obvious reason as to why negotiations have hit a snag is that Beckham is presumably looking for a guaranteed starting role in the majors. Given his .226/.271/.348 slash-line in 2014, it's probably not realistic that Beckham will have consistent starting at-bats next season. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Morse getting $16M from Marlins
      FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Michael Morse will receive $16 million over two years in his contract with the Marlins.

      Advice: He can also earn more in performance bonuses. Earlier reports suggested that Morse's deal was for $12 million or even $8 million, but the $16 million figure makes more sense. The former Giant figures to receive the bulk of the playing time at first base for the Marlins, though Garrett Jones should see some starts versus lefties if he's not traded. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Barton appeared in just 30 games this past season with the A's, batting just .158/.234/.175 with zero homers and five RBI. He's a former first-round pick and highly-ranking first base prospect, but the ship has probably sailed for the 29-year-old. Rotoworld.com

Jones could stick around as a left-handed backup first baseman and outfielder, but Frisaro hears that he'll most likely be dealt. The 33-year-old is set to earn $5 million in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Rockies sign INF Descalso to a two-year deal
      Rockies signed INF Daniel Descalso to a two-year, $3.6 million contract.

      Advice: ESPN's Jerry Crasnick passed along the contract terms. Descalso was non-tendered by the Cardinals earlier this month after batting just .244/.333/.311 over 104 games this past season, but he's capable of playing all over the infield. He'll essentially replace Josh Rutledge in a utility role. Rotoworld.com

      Jeff Wilson of the Fort-Worth Star Telegram writes that the Rangers are optimistic about re-signing Adam Rosales.

      Advice: Rosales was non-tendered by the Rangers in December, but they still hope to bring him back for a lesser salary. The 31-year-old batted .262 with four home runs and a .706 OPS over 56 games this season and would function as a utility infielder if he returns. Rotoworld.com

    • Morse's deal with Marlins worth $12 million
      Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that Michael Morse's two-year deal with the Marlins is in the $12 million range.

      Advice: If the report is correct, that's a very reasonable price to pay for an upgrade at first base. Morse batted .279 with 16 home runs and an .811 OPS (including a 130 OPS+) this past season and should be less of a liability defensively with a move away from the oufield. The Marlins could either use him as their everyday first baseman or platoon him with Garrett Jones. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He'll presumably receive an invite to major league spring training. Tuiasosopo, 28, spent all of 2014 at the Triple-A level between the White Sox and Blue Jays and batted .240/.357/.379 with 13 home runs and 50 RBI over 122 games. He could be in the mix for a bench job in the spring, but will likely begin 2015 in the minors. Rotoworld.com

      Orioles manager Buck Showalter said on 105.7 The Fan that Chris Davis has received a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) for adderall.

      Advice: Davis was handed a 25-game suspension in September after a second positive test for amphetamines. He has had a TUE in the past to take adderall, but not for this year, which triggered the suspension. However, he'll be able to use the drug without penalty in 2015. It's worth noting that Davis still has one game remaining on his suspension, which he'll serve on Opening Day next season. Rotoworld.com

      Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins have agreed to a two-year contract with Michael Morse, pending a physical.

      Advice: The financial terms aren't yet available. The Marlins have been very active this offseason and the addition of Morse further strengthens their lineup. The 32-year-old batted .279/.336/.475 with 16 homers and 61 RBI in 131 games this past season with the Giants. The Marlins could either go with a Morse/Garrett Jones combo at first base or try to deal Jones. Rotoworld.com

      FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Marlins are close to signing Michael Morse.

      Advice: No word yet on the terms being discussed. If signed, Morse would take over the starting first base job for the Marlins, which would presumably make Garrett Jones available via trade. Morse turns 32 in March and batted .279/.336/.475 with 16 homers and 61 RBI in 131 games for the Giants last season. Rotoworld.com

    • Royals, Morales finalize two-year, $17M pact
      Royals signed DH Kendrys Morales to a two-year, $17 million contract with a mutual option for 2017.

      Advice: Morales gets $6.5 million in 2015 and $10.5 million in 2016, and he can make up to $750,000 per year in performance-based bonuses. It's a pretty nice deal for a 31-year-old designated hitter who only managed a .218/.274/.338 slash line in 98 games this past season between the Mariners and Twins. Kansas City will be hoping for a big bounceback. Rotoworld.com

    • Yankees re-sign Headley for 4 years, $52 mil
      Yankees re-signed 3B Chase Headley to a four-year, $52 million contract.

      Advice: Headley was said to prefer re-signing with New York all along, and that's what he wound up doing after drawing interest from the Giants, Marlins, and Astros, among others. The 30-year-old third baseman batted just .243/.328/.372 in 135 games this past season between the Padres and Yankees, but he's only 30 years old and was an MVP candidate not long ago. This deal could wind up being a steal for New York. Rotoworld.com

      Mets signed OF John Mayberry Jr. to a one-year, $1.45 million contract.

      Advice: The deal also carries some performance-based incentives. Mayberry does well against left-handed pitching and should see semi-regular action in New York between the corner outfield spots and first base. Over the course of his career, he's hit .272/.323/.533 versus southpaws. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Worth is a .230/.293/.295 hitter in 292 career plate appearances at the major league level, but the 29-year-old can play all over the infield defensively and could get a look as a utilityman at some point next season in Arizona. Worth had an offer from one team this winter to try becoming a pitcher. Rotoworld.com

    • Rangers reach agreement with Kyle Blanks
      Rangers signed 1B Kyle Blanks to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

      Advice: It's a split contract, carrying different salaries for his time spent in the minors and majors. Blanks was designated for assignment and then non-tendered by the A's earlier this offseason after appearing in only 26 games in 2014 due to a lingering Achilles issue. But the 6-foot-6, 265-pound first baseman was certainly worth a shot on a low-risk deal for Texas. He's had a couple nice stretches of production when healthy. Rotoworld.com

    • Yanks, Headley agree to four-year, $52M deal
      FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Yankees have reached a four-year deal with Chase Headley.

      Advice: The 30-year-old third baseman drew serious interest this winter from the Giants, Astros, and Marlins, but the Yanks have outbid them all to bring Headley back on board. Headley hit .262/.371/.398 with six homers, 28 runs scored, and 17 RBI in 58 games this past season for New York after the July 22 trade from San Diego -- good fantasy production with the hope of even better in 2015.

      According to WFAN's Sweeny Murti, free agent Chase Headley could make a decision as early as Monday.

      Advice: Headley had been expected to sign by the end of the Winter Meetings, but he was still shopping around for offers over the weekend. The 30-year-old third baseman seems to be drawing heavy interest from the Yankees and Giants, and milder interest from the Marlins and Astros. He reportedly has a four-year, $65 million on the table -- quite a price for a guy who hit .243/.328/.372 in 2014. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Jackson says that Morse might be the team's "best realistic option" at first base, as they don't want to trade Henderson Alvarez or Jarred Cosart for help at the position. Morse has also drawn interest from the Orioles and Rangers as a potential designated hitter. The 32-year-old batted .279/.336/.475 with 16 homers and 61 RBI in 131 games for the Giants last season.

    • Pedro Alvarez won't platoon at first base
      The Pirates plan to play Pedro Alvarez every day at first base next season rather than pair him with a right-handed hitting platoon partner.

      Advice: "We're going to find out," manager Clint Hurdle said when asked if Alvarez will be able to hit left-handed pitching. "It's going to be Pedro's job to keep. Pedro knows what challenges he's got to meet. He loves his teammates, he wants to do well and perform well. He's taken on some necessary opportunities this winter to prepare and get ready." Alvarez has batted just .196/.267/.321 versus southpaws during his career, which includes a .175/.241/.263 line last season. It remains to be seen whether the Pirates will stick to their plan to play Alvarez every day if he continues to struggle against lefties. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: That matches up with an earlier tweet from Andy Martino of the New York Daily News saying the two sides had talked about Howard. The Orioles balked at the offer, likely due to Howard's inclusion. The Phils owe Howard $50 million over the next two seasons and would presumably like to unload that contract if at all possible.

Morales batted just .218/.274/.338 with eight homers and 42 RBI in 98 games this past season between the Mariners and Twins, but he's only 31 years old so maybe there's better production ahead.

      Advice: Players who have been in the majors for 10 years and have spent five consecutive seasons with the same club have the right to veto any trade. Howard can already block deals to 20 teams, but this would make him even more difficult to move. The Phillies would surely like to unload him this winter, but they would have to eat a significant portion of the $60 million remaining on his contract to do so. There was a report last month that Royals discussed him as a possibility, but things have been quiet ever since. Rotoworld.com

      ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Kendrys Morales is looking for a 2-3 contract for "Billy Butler money."

      Advice: Butler wound up getting more money than expected ($30 million over three years), so we can't rule anything out with Morales. However, he made only $7.41 million on a one-year deal this past season and batted just .218/.274/.338 with eight homers and 42 RBI in 98 games. The Royals and Rangers are reportedly considering the DH. Rotoworld.com

    • Kendrys Morales is seeking 'multiple years'
      ESPN's Jerry Crasnick heard from an AL team official that agent Scott Boras is seeking "multiple years and substantial dollars" for Kendrys Morales.

      Advice: We've heard this one before. Morales is believed to be drawing interest from multiple clubs, including the Royals and Rangers, but it could be difficult for him to land something better than a one-year deal after batting just .218/.274/.338 with eight homers and 42 RBI in 98 games this past season between the Twins and Mariners.

    • Astros have checked in on Chase Headley
      Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Astros have "kicked the tires" on free agent third baseman Chase Headley.

      Advice: "Kicked the tires" is one of the more vague Hot Stove phrases, so this could have been a matter of due diligence on the part of the Astros. Still, Headley would be a solid upgrade over Matt Dominguez at third base. The Yankees and Giants are still strongly in the mix. Rotoworld.com

    • Yanks could go 4 years for Headley, Robertson
      Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York reports that the Yankees are willing to go four years for Chase Headley and/or David Robertson, but that it will "have to be at the right price."

      Advice: Previous reports indicated that the Yankees were only willing to go three years to keep Headley, so this would certainly enhance their chances. The 30-year-old reportedly has a four-year, $65 million offer in hand from an unidentified team. Robertson reportedly wants a four-year deal in the range of $50 million, but the Yankees likely won't go there unless his price drops. Rotoworld.com
