  • Dodgers ink Miguel Rojas to extension through '24
    Dodgers signed INF Miguel Rojas to a one-year, $6 million contract extension with a $5 million club option for 2025.

    Advice: The deal also contains a $1 million buyout for 2025. Rojas was acquired by the Dodgers last month in a trade with the Marlins and was set to hit free agency at the conclusion of the 2023 season. The soon-to-be 34-year-old infielder, who recently resumed swinging a bat as he recovers from offseason right wrist surgery, is expected to fill a versatile utility role this season in Los Angeles.

  • Won't pitch in WBC
    Romano will not participate in the World Baseball Classic for Team Italy, Jamie Campbell of Sportsnet reports.

    Advice: Romano also was offered an opportunity to pitch for Team Canada in the tournament, but declined that chance as well. The right-handed closer had announced that he was going to be a part of the Italian team back in 2022, but he'll instead spend the start of the Grapefruit League in Toronto's camp. Yesterday, 6:31 pm
  • Will be primary 3B for KC
    Dozier will be the primary third baseman for Kansas City to open the 2023 season according to Royals general manager J.J. Picollo, Anne Rogers of reports.

    Advice: "We want [Dozier] to get at-bats," Picollo said. "That's the best place for him to play." The Royals want Bobby Witt to settle in at shortstop, and while Dozier has played in the outfield as well, Kansas City wants the 31-year-old to man the hot corner to begin the 2023 season. He will have to hit better in order to justify staying in the lineup, however, as he hasn't posted an OPS above .750 since his breakout 2019 season. Yesterday, 5:53 pm
  • In mix to be starter in cener
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters that Taylor is in the mix to be the starting center fielder, Eric Stephen of reports.

    Advice: Roberts mentions five potential options to be the starter in center, including Taylor, Trayce Thompson, Jason Heyward, James Outman and Bradley Zimmer. The Dodgers non-tendered Cody Bellinger after another disappointing season, and it appears Los Angeles could go with a committee approach for the 2023 campaign. Taylor was also disappointing last year with an OPS of .677 over 118 games while also dealing with injuries, but the 32-year-old's success in the past make him a quality bounce-back candidate near the end of redraft formats. Yesterday, 5:13 pm
  • Nick Vespi (abdomen) making progress in recovery
    Nick Vespi (abdomen) hopes to be ready for Opening Day.

    Advice: Vespi won't pitch for Team Italy in next month's World Baseball Classic while continuing to recover from last month's hernia surgery, but he hopes to be ready in time for Opening Day. The 27-year-old southpaw put up some impressive numbers last season at Triple-A Norfolk, but struggled in 25 relief appearances for the Orioles. He's vying for one of the final spots on Baltimore's season-opening roster and could wind up opening the year in the minors. Yesterday, 4:46 pm
  • Giants sign Roberto Pérez to minor league contract
    Giants signed C Roberto Pérez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: The deal, which was first reported last weekend, is now official. Pérez will make $2.5 million this season if added to the Giants' major-league roster. The 34-year-old veteran backstop can also make an additional $1.5 million in performance-based incentives. He played just 21 games last season for the Pirates before undergoing season-ending surgery to repair a ruptured left hamstring. He provides San Francisco with some quality catching depth behind young starter Joey Bart. Yesterday, 4:38 pm
  • Miguel Rojas (wrist) cleared to resume swinging
    Miguel Rojas (wrist) has been cleared to start swinging a bat.

    Advice: Rojas, who was acquired by the Dodgers last month in a trade with the Marlins, is still recovering from last month's right wrist surgery, so it's a positive sign that he's been cleared to start up a hitting progression. The soon-to-be 34-year-old hopes to play for Team Venezuela in the upcoming World Baseball Classic and should be ready for Opening Day. He's expected to fill a versatile utility role this season for Los Angeles. Yesterday, 3:50 pm
  • Gets two-year extension
    Rojas (hand/wrist) agreed to a two-year, $10 million extension on Saturday with a $5 million club option for 2025, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of reports.

    Advice: If the Dodgers decline the option, Rojas gets a $1 million buyout. The infielder was set to hit free agency after the 2023 campaign, but he'll be a member of the Dodgers now through at least the 2024 season. The 33-year-old should be a major asset for Los Angeles on defense, but his lack of offensive upside keeps him off of the fantasy radar to begin the year. Yesterday, 3:49 pm
  • Nationals ink Chad Kuhl to minor league contract
    Nationals signed RHP Chad Kuhl to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Kuhl predictably struggled last season with the Rockies, finishing with a bloated 5.72 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 110/58 K/BB ratio across 137 innings (27 starts). The 30-year-old veteran right-hander gives the Nationals some additional starting pitching depth entering spring training and has a decent shot at making Washington's season-opening rotation if top prospects Cade Cavalli or MacKenzie Gore stumble out of the gates in Grapefruit League action.
