  • Jacob Nottingham added to 40-man roster

The Brewers aren't ready to give up on him, though, so they're protecting from the Rule 5 Draft. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:20 pm

  • Marlins pick up Caleb Smith from Yankees
    Marlins acquired LHP Caleb Smith and 1B Garrett Cooper from the Yankees for RHP Michael King and international signing bonus pool money.

    Advice: Smith struggled in his brief time with the Yankees but held a nice 2.41 ERA and 102/31 K/BB ratio over 100 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A in 2017. He could potentially compete for a spot in the Marlins' rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:42 pm
  • Marlins acquire Garrett Cooper from Yankees
    Marlins acquired 1B Garrett Cooper and LHP Caleb Smith from the Yankees for RHP Michael King and international signing bonus pool money.

    Advice: Cooper hit .326/.333/.488 in his brief time with the Yankees after they picked him up from the Brewers in a trade. The soon-to-be 27-year-old batted .359/.423/.634 between Double- and Triple-A in 2017 and looks like a potential platoon partner for Justin Bour in 2018. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:32 pm
  • Hunter Harvey added to 40-man roster
    Orioles purchased the contract of RHP Hunter Harvey from Low-A Delmarva.

He'll turn just 23 in a few weeks and will look to re-establish himself in 2018 as one of the best pitching prospects in baseball if he can stay healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:06 pm

  • Brewers showing interest in Lance Lynn
    MLB.com's Jon Morosi reports that the Brewers are showing interest in Lance Lynn.

    Advice: Morosi has also connected Milwaukee to Jake Arrieta and says the club is "showing interest in virtually every prominent free agent starting pitcher." They have money to spend and are looking to supplement a rotation that is expected to be without Jimmy Nelson (shoulder) for a chunk of next season. Lynn put up a 3.43 ERA this past season in his first year back from Tommy John surgery. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:26 pm

  • Chris Beck outrighted to Triple-A
    White Sox sent RHP Chris Beck outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: The White Sox needed to clear some 40-man roster space with Monday being the deadline to add players to keep them from being eligible for the Rule 5 Draft. Beck held a 6.40 ERA over 57 relief appearances in 2017. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:16 pm

  • Report: Alcantara part of Stanton offer
    Craig Mish of SiriusXM reports that prospect right-hander Sandy Alcantara was part of the Cardinals' reported proposal for Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton.

    Advice: Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported Sunday that the Cardinals have made a formal trade offer for Stanton. The Giants are also in the mix here and can't beat the quality of prospects that the Cardinals have, but Stanton ultimately controls the process due to his no-trade clause. Alcantara, a hard-throwing 22-year-old, made eight appearances with the Cardinals this year and posted a 4.31 ERA and 106/54 K/BB ratio over 125 1/3 innings in Double-A.

  • Logan Verrett signs with KBO
    Logan Verrett has signed with the NC Dinos of the Korea Baseball Organization.

    Advice: Verrett opted to go overseas after electing free agency last month. The 27-year-old made four appearances with the Orioles this past season and posted a 5.10 ERA over two starts and 38 relief appearances in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:45 am

  • Morosi: Orioles interested in Lynn, Cobb
    The Orioles are interested in free agent starters Lance Lynn and Alex Cobb, a source tells MLB Network's Jon Morosi.

    Advice: The interest in Cobb was known, but this is the first time Lynn and the O's have been linked. It makes sense, given that starting pitching was the Orioles' biggest weakness last season. Morosi says the team is slightly partial to Cobb due in part to his experience pitching in the American League East. Lynn put up a 3.43 ERA this past season and will be a popular free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:14 pm

  • Lance Lynn rejects Cardinals qualifying offer
    RHP Lance Lynn rejected the Cardinals' one-year, $17.4 million qualifying offer.

    Advice: Lynn's velocity and peripherals in his first season back from Tommy John surgery went south, but he still posted a 3.43 ERA. He's arguably at the top of the second tier of free agent starters. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:41 am
