Player Notes

  • Begins throwing program
    Roberts (elbow) has started a throwing program, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Advice: Roberts posted a photo of him throwing at the Cubs' spring training complex in Mesa. The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery in July, and he's expected to miss most -- if not all -- of the 2023 season while recovering. Rotowire.com 13 minutes ago
  • Clears waivers
    Sanchez was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Jan. 5 after clearing waivers.

    Advice: Sanchez has spent time in three organizations this offseason after being moved off the 40-man rosters of the Tigers, Pirates and Diamondbacks, but he looks set to stick around in Arizona now that he's gone unclaimed off waivers upon being designated for assignment in late December. The 26-year-old will likely be invited to big-league spring training and could get the chance to compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster if Arizona decides to keep a third catcher behind Gabriel Moreno and Carson Kelly.

  • Clears waivers
    Widener was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Jan. 5 after clearing waivers.

    Advice: The 28-year-old right-hander thus remains in the Arizona organization after being recently moved off the 40-man roster. Widener made 14 appearances out of the Diamondbacks bullpen in 2022, logging a 3.63 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 17.1 innings. Rotowire.com 26 minutes ago
  • Announces retirement
    O'Day announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that he has retired from professional baseball.

    Advice: The 40-year-old right-hander will step away from the game coming off an injury-plagued 2022 campaign in Atlanta wherein he logged just 21.2 innings with the big club while battling a left calf strain and a sprained right big toe. O'Day appeared in 644 games over parts of 15 seasons in the majors with the Angels, Mets, Rangers, Orioles and Yankees in addition to Atlanta, logging a lifetime 2.59 ERA and 1.03 WHIP. The longtime setup man made his lone All-Star team in 2015 as a member of Baltimore. Rotowire.com 29 minutes ago
  • Back in Arizona on MiLB pact
    The Diamondbacks announced Saturday that Hager was re-signed on a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to MLB spring training.

    Advice: Hager concluded the 2022 season as a member of Arizona's 40-man roster and 28-man active roster before being outrighted to Triple-A Reno in early November. Rather than electing free agency and trying his luck elsewhere, the 29-year-old will stick in Arizona's organization and compete for a utility role in spring training. During his sparse action in the majors in 2022, Hager slashed .240/.345/.280 across 59 plate appearances. Rotowire.com 32 minutes ago

  • Miguel Vargas likely to start at 2B for Dodgers
    Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said on Sunday in an interview with MLB Network Radio that Miguel Vargas will likely be the team's starting second baseman this season.

    Advice: Friedman elaborated that the Dodgers have plenty of positional flexibility with their infield mix and are open to competition this spring. He also added that Gavin Lux will likely be the team's primary shortstop with Max Muncy at third base, Chris Taylor staying in the outfield, and Miguel Rojas in a versatile utility role. The big development here is that Los Angeles views Vargas as a potential starting option at the keystone after he batted a sublime .304/.404/.511 with 17 homers and 16 stolen bases across 520 plate appearances for Triple-A Oklahoma City. He'll be a popular late-round sleeper candidate in fantasy drafts this spring. NBCSportsEDGE.com 38 minutes ago
  • Megill and Peterson likely to open '23 at Triple-A
    Mets pitching coach Jeremy Hefner told the New York Post that Tylor Megill and David Peterson will likely open the regular season at Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: The Mets have three starting pitchers over the age of 35 -- Justin Verlander, Max Schezer and Carlos Carrasco -- which means that Megill and Peterson are extremely likely get an opportunity at some point this season to step into New York's starting rotation. It would make sense to bump them both to the bullpen as multi-inning relief weapons, but it sounds like the Mets want to keep both of them stretched out to be ready to fill-in, if necessary this season.

  • Giants signing veteran catcher Roberto Pérez
    Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports that the Giants are signing free agent catcher Roberto Pérez.

    Advice: The veteran backstop was limited to 21 games with the Pirates last year after undergoing surgery for a ruptured left hamstring. Pérez will join former top prospect Joey Bart and Rule 5 pickup Blake Sabol in the mix for playing time behind the plate in San Francisco. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 4:22 pm
  • Phillies signing Josh Harrison to one-year deal
    According to Jon Heyman of the New York Post, the Phillies and free agent infielder Josh Harrison are in agreement on a one-year, $2 million contract.

    Advice: The move will give the reigning National League champions some much-needed middle infield depth. Harrison batted .256/.317/.370 with seven homers and two stolen bases across 425 plate appearances this past season with the White Sox before the club declined his $5.5 million option for 2023.
