  • Braves claim Grant Dayton off waivers
    Braves claimed LHP Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers.

    Advice: It's a long-term gamble by Atlanta, as Dayton had Tommy John surgery in August and could be out until 2019. However, the lefty reliever was dominant in 2016 when he was healthy with a 2.05 ERA and 39/6 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 frames for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:29 pm

  • Brewers add Marcos Diplan to 40-man roster
    Brewers purchased the contract of RHP Marcos Diplan from High-A Carolina.

  • 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

    Brewers purchased the contract of SS Mauricio Dubon from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Meadows, 22, had a second straight injury-shortened season in 2017 and hit only .250/.311/.359 in 72 games at Indianapolis. He remains one of the top prospects in the game but needs to stay healthy and produce in 2018. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:00 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

  • Blue Jays a 'dark horse' for J.D. Martinez?
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Blue Jays "could emerge as a dark horse candidate" for J.D. Martinez.

    Advice: They are expected to let Jose Bautista walk as a free agent, which would create an opening in right field. The Blue Jays have also been connected to Jay Bruce. Martinez will certainly cost a pretty penny this winter, as his agent, Scott Boras, is reportedly seeking a seven-year, $210 million contract for his client. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:50 pm

  • Tyler O'Neill added to 40-man roster
    Cardinals purchased the contract of OF Tyler O'Neill from Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Acquired from the Mariners at midseason for Marco Gonzalez, O'Neill hit .246/.321/.499 with 31 homers and 14 steals at the Triple-A level this season. They needed to add him to the 40-man roster in order to keep him away from the Rule 5 Draft. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:14 pm
  • 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

  • Giants have had discussions on J.D. Martinez
    John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Giants "have had discussions" on J.D. Martinez.

    Advice: The Giants are very likely to get at least one big bat this winter, and they've been heavily connected to Giancarlo Stanton via the trade route and now Martinez via the free agent route. Martinez's agent, Scott Boras, is reportedly seeking a seven-year, $210 million contract for his client. The Red Sox have also been linked with Martinez and the Diamondbacks are expected to make an effort to re-sign him. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:12 am

  • 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

  • Report: J.D. Martinez asking 7 years, $210M
    According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the asking price for J.D. Martinez at this week's GM Meetings has been seven years and $210 million.

    Advice: This comes after Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reported last week that Martinez's new agent, Scott Boras, was looking for a deal in the range of $200 million. Boras has even dubbed his client as the "King Kong of Slug." It's an appropriate nickname after Martinez mashed 45 homers in just 119 games this past season, but his defensive limitations will likely impact his ability to reach the lofty asking price. Still, he's expected to receive one of the biggest free agent contracts this offseason. The Diamondbacks and Red Sox are among the teams to watch in this situation. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:29 pm
