  • Yankees interested in Ruben Tejada
    George A. King III of the New York Post reports that the Yankees have interest in free agent infielder Ruben Tejada on a minor league deal.

    Advice: Tejada, 27, appeared in 36 games in the majors last season between the Cardinals and Giants while batting just .167/.247/.242 in 78 plate appearances. He was outrighted off the Giants' 40-man roster in early August and finished the season in the minors. The former Met would be organizational depth at the very least. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:55 am

  • Padres interested in Rangers' Alberto
    According to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, the Padres have expressed interest in Rangers infielder Hanser Alberto.

    Advice: Sullivan also notes that the Rangers like Padres outfielder Travis Jankowski, so there could be some movement here. Alberto owns a brutal .194/.204/.226 career batting line at the major league level, but the 24-year-old is capable of playing good defense all around the infield and his contract runs through 2021.

  • Report: Nats, Angels interested in INF Drew
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Nationals and Angels are among the teams looking at free agent infielder Stephen Drew.

    Advice: Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reported last week that the Angels have had preliminary talks with Drew. The Nationals remain interested in bringing him back, but he could have a more prominent role with the Angels. Drew turns 34 years old next March and batted .266 with eight homers and an .864 OPS over 165 plate appearances this past season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:44 am

  • Padres have interest in SS Erick Aybar
    MLB.com's AJ Cassavell reports that the Padres have had preliminary talks with Erick Aybar's agent.

    Advice: The Padres liked what they saw out of Luis Sardinas late last season and could give him a shot at the shortstop job, but they're also shopping for alternatives. Aybar, who turns 33 next month, hit just .243/.303/.320 last season for the Braves and Tigers. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:13 pm

  • Jimmy Rollins planning to play in 2017
    ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Jimmy Rollins wants to play in 2017.

    Advice: Rollins never caught on anywhere else after the White Sox released him last June following a .221/.295/.329 batting line over 41 games. He's now 38 and will have to settle for a minor league contract just as he did last February. Rollins is a poor bet to find a job where he can earn significant playing time at this point.

  • Angels non-tender Gregorio Petit on Friday
    Angels non-tendered INF Gregorio Petit.

    Advice: The 31-year-old infielder is now a free agent and will look for work elsewhere. He hit just .245/.299/.348 with two homers and 17 RBI in 223 plate appearances with the Angels in 2016. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:09 am

  • Giants agree to one-year deal with Adrianza
    Giants avoided arbitration with INF Ehire Adrianza, agreeing to a one-year contract.

    Advice: The deal will pay Adrianza $600,000 if he's in the big leagues or $300,000 if he spends the season in the minor leagues. The 27-year-old appeared in 40 games for the Giants in 2016, slashing .254/.299/.381 with a pair of homers and seven RBI in 63 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:27 pm

  • Padres non-tender Alexi Amarista on Friday
    Padres non-tendered INF Alexi Amarista.

    Advice: The 27-year-old had a mediocre season in a utility role for the Padres in 2016, hitting .257/.295/.271 with no homers, 11 RBI and nine stolen bases in 150 plate appearances. He'll look for another opportunity in free agency but is likely to be irrelevant in most fantasy formats regardless of where he lands. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:53 pm

  • Blue Jays outright Andy Burns to Triple-A
    Blue Jays sent INF/OF Andy Burns outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The 26-year-old utilityman passed through waivers unclaimed and will continue to function as organizational depth for the Jays. He appeared in 10 games for the big league club in 2016, going hitless in six at-bats. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:31 pm

  • Angels have had talks with Stephen Drew
    According to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register, the Angels have had preliminary talks with free agent infielder Stephen Drew.

    Advice: Fletcher notes, however, that Drew is "one of many candidates" the Angels are considering to boost their infield depth. Drew hit well for the Nationals this summer over 165 plate appearances (.864 OPS), but it has been years since he's been a reliable player in an everyday role. Drew will turn 34 years old next March.

  • Saladino believes he's over back issues
    Tyler Saladino said Tuesday that he believes his back issues are under control.

    Advice: Saladino struggled through back discomfort on and off in 2016 and was eventually diagnosed with a herniated disk in late September, but he's had a fairly normal offseason and expects to be 100 percent leading into 2017. "My back, I feel actually really good right now and strong and all that," said the 27-year-old utilityman. "I haven't had any symptoms. It's actually been the opposite. It has been feeling really good, knock on wood or whatever. It's been a good progression." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:39 pm

  • Gregorio Petit designated for assignment
    Angels designated INF Gregorio Petit for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Ryan LaMarre. Petit, who turns 32 next month, is a career .249/.291/.353 hitter across parts of five big league seasons. Rotoworld.com Nov 28, 7:09 pm
