  • Royals avoid arbitration with Tim Collins
    Royals and LHP Tim Collins avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.475 million contract.

    Advice: There was some thought that he could be non-tendered after missing 2015 following Tommy John surgery, but Collins will remain in Kansas City at the same salary he had this past season. The owners of a career 3.54 ERA over four campaigns, Collins is expected to get a late start to 2016 as he continues his recovery. Today, 6:09 pm

    Twins signed C Juan Centeno to a minor league contract.

  • Pederson not discussed in Miller trade talks
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Joc Pederson's name has not been involved in trade talks with the Braves regarding Shelby Miller.

    Advice: It contradicts an earlier report from Robert Murray of The Dodgers are talking to the Braves about a trade for Miller, but Heyman says they've made it clear they'd rather trade prospects rather than deal from the major league roster. Pederson is under team control through 2020. Today, 1:34 pm
  • Craig Gentry outrighted to Triple-A
    Athletics sent OF Craig Gentry outright to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Gentry had a dreadful 2015, hitting .120/.196/.200 while spending most of the year at Triple-A. He's arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter. Today, 1:27 pm

  • Fernando Abad outrighted to Triple-A
    Athletics sent LHP Fernando Abad outright to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: It's a minor surprise that he cleared waivers, but apparently no one wanted to pay his roughly $1.5 million arbitration figure. Abad holds a 2.90 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 128/44 K/BB ratio over 142 2/3 relief innings across the last three seasons, so the A's will gladly keep him around for depth. Today, 1:24 pm

  • Mets expected to tender Jenrry Mejia's Anthony DiComo reports that the Mets will "likely" tender Jenrry Mejia a contract for next season.

    Advice: It wasn't a given, as Mejia will get a raise this winter after making $2.595 million during a suspension-shortened 2015. He'll miss much of 2016 to his second PED suspension, but the Mets have decided it's worth it if they can have his big arm in the bullpen in the second half. Today, 1:19 pm

  • Cardinals sign Brayan Peńa to two-year deal
    Cardinals signed C Brayan Peńa to a two-year contract.

    Advice: There's no word yet on the financials of the deal. Peńa, who will turn 34 in January, offers the Cards an upgrade over Tony Cruz but doesn't figure to see a ton of playing time unless Yadier Molina gets hurt. He's a career .260/.300/.352 hitter and batted .273/.334/.324 with no home runs over 367 plate appearances for the Reds this past season. Today, 1:09 pm

  • '20 or so teams' calling on SP Shelby Miller
    According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, "20 or so teams" have checked on Braves right-hander Shelby Miller.

    Advice: But the asking price is extremely high at the moment, with the Braves reportedly requesting starting pitcher Luis Severino from the Yankees and center fielder Joc Pederson from the Dodgers. Miller is only 25 years old and registered a 3.02 ERA over 205-plus innings in 2015, but the rebuilding Braves want as much cost-controlled talent as possible as they point toward the opening of a new ballpark in 2017. Miller is eligible for arbitration for the first time this winter and can become a free agent after the 2018 season. Today, 12:27 pm

  • Indians outright Michael Choice to Triple-A
    Indians sent OF Michael Choice outright to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Choice was pushed off the Indians' 40-man roster last week. He has accepted a non-roster invite to spring training in 2016 and figures to open the year at Columbus. Today, 11:29 am

  • BoSox sign free agent outfielder Chris Young
    According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Red Sox have signed outfielder Chris Young.

    Advice: The exact financial framework of the deal has not been revealed, but CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says it's a two-year deal. Young is a pull-happy right-handed flyball hitter and should be able to do a lot of damage at Fenway Park, though he'll probably open the 2016 season in an active-fourth-outfielder type of role behind Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley, and Rusney Castillo. Unless of course there's a trade brewing. Young, 32, posted a cool .773 OPS with 14 home runs and 20 doubles in 140 games this past season for the Yankees. He is a .263/.362/.474 career hitter against left-handed pitching. Today, 10:28 am

  • Grant Green signs minors deal with Giants
    Giants signed INF/OF Grant Green to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Green batted just .190/.227/.262 in 44 plate appearances this past season for the Angels and he is a .249/.283/.335 career hitter at the major league level. The 28-year-old utilityman probably isn't going to see much action -- if any at all -- in San Francisco. Today, 9:51 am

  • Marlins ink C Adrian Nieto to minors deal
    Marlins signed C Adrian Nieto to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Nieto appeared in 48 games for the White Sox in 2014 but batted just .236/.296/.340. He spent the entire 2015 season at Double-A Birmingham, slashing .207/.344/.316. Consider him emergency catching depth for Miami. Today, 9:30 am

  • Marlins sign Xavier Scruggs to minors deal
    Marlins signed 1B Xavier Scruggs to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Scruggs batted just .262/.279/.310 across 43 plate appearances this past season for the Cardinals, but the 28-year-old has flashed some promising power numbers at the upper levels of the minor leagues. He's a nice organizational-depth addition for the Fish. Today, 9:28 am

  • Padres will only move Ross for 'monster' deal
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Padres will only consider trading Tyson Ross for a "monster" return package.

    Advice: Ross is under club control for two more seasons via salary arbitration, so the stance makes sense. It's a timely bit of posturing on the part of the Padres heading into next week's Winter Meetings in Nashville. Ross, 28, posted a 3.26 ERA and 212/84 K/BB ratio in 196 innings this past season for San Diego. He had a 2.81 ERA for the Friars in 2014. Today, 7:42 am
  • Juan Lagares (elbow) playing in Dominican
    Juan Lagares (elbow) appeared in two games this weekend for Aguilas Cibaenas of the Dominican Winter League.

    Advice: Lagares started in center field and went 1-for-6 at the plate with a walk, a stolen base, and a sacrifice bunt. He was able to avoid surgery for his lingering right elbow injury and should be 100 percent heading into the start of spring training in February. Lagares, 26, finished the 2015 regular season with a disappointing .259/.289/.358 batting line and only six home runs in 143 games. Today, 7:36 am
  • Indians designate Choice for assignment
    Indians designated OF Michael Choice for assignment.

    Advice: Choice gets the boot off the 40-man roster after Wednesday's acquisition of Kirby Yates. The former top prospect was acquired from the Rangers back in August and could soon be with his third organization in the past four months. Wednesday, 11:02 am

  • Athletics designate Abad for assignment
    Athletics designated LHP Fernando Abad for assignment.

    Advice: Abad pitched well enough in relief for the A's during the 2015 campaign, holding a 4.15 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 45/19 K/BB ratio across 47 2/3 innings. The 29-year-old southpaw has had enough major league success that he should latch on elsewhere in a middle relief capacity. Nov 20, 1:00 pm

  • Athletics designate Gentry for assignment
    Athletics designated OF Craig Gentry for assignment.

    Advice: Gentry saw 50 at-bats with the A's in 2015. He did very little with them. The veteran outfielder slashed just .120/.196/.200 in that limited stretch of action. Still, Gentry will likely find a home elsewhere, as he's a proven bench option if nothing else. Nov 20, 12:57 pm
