  • Casey McGehee leaves MLB for Japan
    Casey McGehee has signed a one-year contract with Japan's Yomiuri Giants.

    Advice: The deal includes a club option. McGehee spent most of 2016 with Triple-A Toledo, but did log 30 games at the big league level with the Tigers while filling in for injured third baseman Nick Castellanos. The 34-year-old holds a .258 average over 2,798 major league at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:04 pm

  • Reds don't tender contract to Ramon Cabrera
    Reds non-tendered C Ramon Cabrera.

    Advice: The 27-year-old backstop did a respectable job as Tucker Barnhart's primary backup in 2016, slashing .246/.279/.357 with three homers and 23 RBI in 185 plate appearances. He'll look for another opportunity on the free agent market. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:35 am

  • Reds non-tender Gabby Guerrero on Friday
    Reds non-tendered OF Gabby Guerrero.

    Advice: Guerrero, who is the nephew of former MLB star Vladimir Guerrero, was claimed off of waivers from the Diamondbacks last week and now finds himself as a free agent. He struggled with the bat in 2016, slashing .234/.281/.383 across two minor league levels, but possesses enough talent that he should find another club willing to give him a shot.

  • Rays do not tender contract to Ryan Brett

    Advice: The 25-year-old infielder missed the entire 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He'll look to latch on elsewhere on a minor league deal. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:15 am

  • Padres sign Dusty Coleman to minors contract
    Padres signed INF Dusty Coleman to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 29-year-old spent the 2016 campaign in the Royals' organization where he slashed .244/.302/.418 with six homers and 26 RBI in 63 games primarily at Triple-A Omaha. He'll add organizational infield depth for the Padres. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:01 am

  • Rockies do not tender contract to Cardullo
    Rockies non-tendered 1B Stephen Cardullo.

    Advice: The 29-year-old makes for an interesting low-cost investment on the free agent market or as a non-roster invitee. He slashed an impressive .308/.367/.522 with 17 homers, 72 RBI and six stolen bases in 452 plate appearances at Triple-A Albuquerque in 2016. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:45 am

  • Pirates non-tender Eric Fryer on Friday
    Pirates non-tendered C Eric Fryer.

    Advice: The 31-year-old backstop hit .267/.336/.319 with no homers and 13 RBI in 133 plate appearances between the Cardinals and Pirates in 2016. He will look for another opportunity on the open market but may have to settle for a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:22 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 backstop Hector Sanchez
    Padres non-tendered C Hector Sanchez.

    Advice: While not the biggest name of the six players that the Padres non-tendered on Friday, Sanchez could make for an intriguing option on the free agent market. The 27-year-old has hit .241/.278/.354 with 13 homers and 95 RBI over 646 plate appearances in his major league career. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:04 pm

  • D'Backs agree to two-year deal with Mathis
    Nick Piecoro of AZCentral Sports reports that the Diamondbacks have agreed to a two-year, $4 million contract with Jeff Mathis.

    Advice: It seems like the Diamondbacks are looking to cut payroll this offseason, which prompted the non-tendering of Welington Castillo and the signing of the veteran Mathis. He's likely to share time behind the dish with Chris Herrmann and perhaps Oscar Hernandez, but is a poor bet for any type of fantasy production even in the hitter-friendly home ballpark. Mathis is a career .197/.254/.308 hitter in 2273 career plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:44 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

  • Diamondbacks agree to deal with Jeff Mathis
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Diamondbacks have agreed to a contract with free agent backstop Jeff Mathis.

    Advice: Nick Piecoro of AZCentral Sports was first to report that the two sides had been in discussions, and now Heyman reports that they have reached a deal. The Diamondbacks now have three catchers on the roster, with Mathis joining Chris Herrmann and Oscar Hernandez. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:36 pm

  • Diamondbacks have had contact with Mathis
    Nick Piecoro of AZCentral Sports reporst that the Diamondbacks have been in contact with free agent catcher Jeff Mathis.

    Advice: The Diamondbacks surprisingly opted to non-tender Welington Castillo on Friday and are now in the market for depth behind the plate. Mathis, 33, hit just .238/.267/.33 with a pair of homers and 15 RBI in 126 at-bats for the Marlins in 2016. He'd simply be a depth signing for the D'Backs and shouldn't be counted on to be the full-time starter behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:25 pm

  • Lawrie agrees to pay cut, avoids arbitration
    White Sox and INF Brett Lawrie avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.5 million contract.

    Advice: Lawrie will see a massive drop in salary from the $4.125 million that he made in 2016 after hitting just .248/.310/.413 with 12 homers and 36 RBI in 94 games in his first season with the White Sox. Still just 26-years-old, Lawrie is expected to be fully healthy and ready to go for the start of spring training and could represent a nice buy-low opportunity in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.

  • Rangers do not tender contract to Hoying
    Rangers non-tendered OF Jared Hoying.

    Advice: Merely an auxiliary piece on their roster, the 27-year-old appeared in only 39 games for the Rangers in 2016 slashing a troublesome .217/.265/.261 with no homers and five RBI in 49 plate appearances. He'll look to latch on elsewhere as a free agent. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:45 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 Monday, 7:09 pm

  • Ramon Cabrera designated for assignment
    Reds designated C Ramon Cabrera for assignment.

    Advice: The Reds essentially picked Juan Graterol over Cabrera for catching depth. Cabrera has hit just .264/.291/.378 over 215 plate appearances in the majors. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:08 pm

  • Reds claim Gabby Guerrero off waivers
    Reds claimed OF Gabby Guerrero off waivers from the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The nephew of Vladimir Guerrero, Gabby batted just .234/.281/.383 between Double- and Triple-A this past season. He's had back-to-back disappointing seasons but will turn just 23 in a couple weeks. Obviously the Reds think he's still got a shot to make an impact. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:04 pm
