    • Boras: Wieters will be ready by Opening Day
      Agent Scott Boras has said that his client, Matt Wieters (elbow), will be ready to play on Opening Day.

      Advice: Orioles manager Buck Showalter said last week that it's possible Wieters won't be ready for the opener as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery, but Boras doesn't seem to think it will be an issue. The O's will no doubt take things slowly with the catcher in spring training and we likely won't know for sure until he starts playing in Grapefruit League action whether he can be penciled into the lineup on April 6 versus the Rays.

    • Return to Orioles looks unlikely for Hundley
      According to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports, Nick Hundley has a two-year offer on the table from another team, making a return to the Orioles unlikely.

      Advice: The O's had been hoping to re-sign the veteran backstop to a one-year deal as an insurance policy behind Matt Wieters. In 218 at-bats between the Padres and Orioles in 2014, Hundley hit .243/.273/.358. Rotoworld.com

    • Red Sox acquire Ryan Hanigan from Padres
      Red Sox acquired C Ryan Hanigan from the Padres for INF Will Middlebrooks.

      Advice: The veteran backstop had a rough season offensively in 2014 but is universally praised for his defensive prowess. He'll share time behind the dish with Christian Vazquez in Boston. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Lavarnway claimed by Cubs off waivers
      Cubs claimed 1B/C Ryan Lavarnway off waivers from the Dodgers.

      Advice: Lavarnway had been claimed by the Dodgers earlier this month before being designated for assignment a week later for the second time this offseason. The 27-year-old had an injury-shortened 2014 season and isn't really a prospect anymore but is probably worth a flier. It remains to be seen how he'll fit in with the Cubs, but he makes the most sense as a third catcher/pinch-hitter. Rotoworld.com

    • Rene Rivera headed to Tampa in mega-deal
      Rays acquired C Rene Rivera from the Padres in the Wil Myers trade.

      Advice: Rivera has been a journeyman for much of his career but thrived when given a real shot at playing time in 2014, batting .252/.319/.432 with 11 homers while drawing rave reviews for his pitch-framing and defense. He seems unlikely to repeat his year offensively, but Rivera will be the primary catcher for the Rays. Rotoworld.com
