  • Drew Steckenrider elects free agency
    Drew Steckenrider has elected free agency.

    Advice: The Marlins outrighted Steckenrider off their 40-man roster and he's decided to test out the free agent waters. He missed this season with an elbow injury and will likely have to settle for a minor league contract this winter. Rotoworld.com 51 minutes ago
  • Brian Moran elects free agency
    Brian Moran has elected free agency.

    Advice: Moran was removed from the Marlins' 40-man roster and will test out free agency rather than accept an outright assignment. He'll have to settle for a minor league deal. Rotoworld.com 52 minutes ago
     
  • Brandon Leibrandt outrighted by Marlins
    Marlins sent LHP Brandon Leibrandt outright to Triple-A Wichita.

  • Ricardo Sanchez had Tommy John surgery
    Ricardo Sanchez underwent Tommy John surgery earlier this month.

    Advice: Sanchez hurt his elbow back in late August and evidently had Tommy John surgery in mid-September. He'll be sidelined until 2022 and might be designated for assignment as the Cardinals look to clear roster space. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:22 pm
     
  • Cardinals decline Kolten Wong's $12.5M option
    Cardinals declined 2B Kolten Wong's $12.5 million option for 2021.

    Advice: Wong regressed at the plate in 2020 after a strong showing in 2019, although he remains one of the better defensive second basemen in baseball. The Cards had been discussing an extension with Wong that would lower his AAV but keep him around longer. Obviously, the two sides weren't able to reach an agreement, but president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said Wednesday that both sides have "agreed to keep the door open" on a return. If Wong doesn't return, St. Louis figures to turn to Tommy Edman at second base. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:33 pm

  • Robinson Chirinos has option declined
    Mets declined C Robinson Chirinos' $6.5 million option for 2021.

    Advice: He'll receive a $1 million buyout instead. Chirinos had just a .475 OPS in 2020 but was a solid offensive catcher before that. He'll turn 37 next June, though, so he might have a difficult time finding a starting job.  Rotoworld.com Today, 1:59 pm
  • Mets decline Todd Frazier's option
    Mets declined INF Todd Frazier's $5.75 million club option for 2021.

    Advice: He'll receive a $1.5 million buyout instead. After beginning this season with the Rangers, Frazier finished it back with the Mets, posting just a .643 OPS over 14 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:57 pm

  • Cesar Puello elects free agency
    Cesar Puello has elected free agency.

    Advice: He'll look for a gig elsewhere rather than accept the Red Sox' outright assignment. Puello, 29, is a career .246/.354/.347 hitter over parts of three seasons in the majors. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:43 pm
    W, 9-1 @Atl
     
  • Jose Peraza elects free agency
    Jose Peraza has elected free agency.

    Advice: The Red Sox removed Peraza from their 40-man roster and he's decided to test out the market rather than accept an outright assignment. He might have to settle for a minor league contract after he hit just .225/.275/.342 this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:41 pm

    Advice: They will also decline Todd Frazier's $5.75 million option and a $10 million option on Wilson Ramos, as previously reported.

    Advice: Kendrick will get a $2.25 million buyout and may head into retirement at age 37. He was brilliant for Washington in 2019 before slashing just .275/.320/.385 with two home runs over 100 plate appearances in 2020. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:46 am

He finished the season on the injured list with a fractured left index finger. Washington also declined options on Anibal Sanchez, Howie Kendrick, and Eric Thames on Wednesday.

  • D-backs decline options on Leake, Guerra, Rondon
    Diamondbacks declined RHP Mike Leake's $18 million mutual option for 2021.

The soon-to-be 33-year-old registered a 4.29 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 127/27 K/BB ratio in 197 innings (32 starts) between the Mariners and Diamondbacks in 2019.
