  • Rays, others interested in Welington Castillo
    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays, as well as other clubs, have expressed interest in Welington Castillo.

    Advice: Castillo was a surprising non-tender by the Diamondbacks on Friday and should be able to land himself a multi-year deal in free agency. Given the struggles of the Rays' trio of catchers in 2016 (Curt Casali, Luke Maile, Bobby Wilson), Castillo would represent a significant upgrade in terms of offense. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:09 am

  • Brewers send Steve Geltz outright to Triple-A
    Brewers sent RHP Steve Geltz outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: The veteran right-hander was claimed off waivers from the Rays last week. This move temporarily removes him from the club's 40-man roster, though he's still expected to secure an invitation to spring training where he will compete for a spot in the team's Opening Day bullpen.

  • Dodgers non-tender Louis Coleman on Friday
    Dodgers non-tendered RHP Louis Coleman.

    Advice: The 30-year-old right-hander was a staple of the Dodgers' bullpen in 2016, compiling a 4.69 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 45/24 K/BB ratio over 48 innings in his 61 appearances. Now a free agent, he'll look to secure a spring training invitation elsewhere. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:42 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.

  • Cubs do not tender contract to Conor Mullee
    Cubs non-tendered RHP Conor Mullee.

    Advice: The 28-year-old right-hander was claimed off of waivers from the Yankees in early November, but is now a free agent.

  • Cubs don't tender contract to Zac Rosscup
    Cubs non-tendered LHP Zac Rosscup.

    Advice: The 28-year-old southpaw missed the majority of the 2016 season after undergoing shoulder surgery. He registered a 4.39 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 29/13 K/BB ratio over 26 2/3 innings with the big league club in 2015. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:23 am

  • Cubs do not tender contract to Concepcion
    Cubs non-tendered LHP Gerardo Concepcion.

    Advice: That move makes the 24-year-old Cuban left-hander a free agent. He appeared in three games for the Cubs in 2016, posting a 3.86 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 2/1 K/BB ratio over 2 1/3 innings. He fired 17 2/3 scoreless innings at Double-A Tennessee to begin the season but was torched for a 7.29 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in his 42 frames at Triple-A Iowa. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:19 am

  • Rays do not tender contract to Ryan Brett
    Rays non-tendered INF 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 Today, 7:15 am

  • Angels do not tender contract to Cody Ege
    Angels non-tendered LHP Cody Ege.

    Advice: The 25-year-old hurler is now a free agent. He was designated for assignment on Thursday to make room for Brooks Pounders who was acquired from the Royals. Ege did well in his 13 appearances with the Angels, posting a 1.04 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 9/3 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings. He should have no problem finding work in the free agent market.

  • 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 Today, 7:01 am

  • M's agree to two-year deal with Rzepczynski
    Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that the Mariners have agreed to a two-year, $11 million contract with Mark Rzepczynski.

    Advice: The 31-year-old southpaw will get $5.5 million each season. Rzepczynski compiled a 2.64 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 46/29 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings between the Athletics and Nationals in 2016. He'll work as a left-handed specialist in the late innings, helping to get the ball to Mariners' closer Edwin Diaz. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:19 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 Today, 5:45 am

  • Pirates do not tender contract to Jeff Locke
    Pirates non-tendered LHP Jeff Locke.

    Advice: The club designated Locke for assignment earlier in the week but weren't able to find a trade partner prior to Friday's deadline. He'll look for another opportunity on the free agent market. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:20 am

  • Diamondbacks non-tender Welington Castillo
    Diamondbacks non-tendered C Welington Castillo.

    Advice: This move comes as quite a surprise, as Castillo was the club's starting catcher and coming off of a fine offensive season where he slashed .264/.322/.423 with 14 homers and 68 RBI in 457 plate appearances. Chris Herrmann now ascends to the top of the depth chart, but it's incredibly likely that the D'Backs will now add another backstop either through trade or free agency. As for Castillo, he was projected to earn around $6 million in arbitration, but now suddenly becomes one of the most appealing catchers on the free agent market. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:16 pm

  • Angels designate Ege for assignment
    Angels designated LHP Cody Ege for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears the way for the newly-claimed Brooks Pounders on the 40-man roster. Ege, 25, made 18 appearances in the majors this season between the Angels and Marlins while posting a 3.86 ERA and 11/5 K/BB ratio over 11 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:53 pm

  • Mariners 'on verge' of deal with Rzepczynski
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Mariners are "on the verge" of signing free agent left-hander Marc Rzepczynski.

    Advice: Chris Cotillo of SB Nation hears it will be a two-year contract. "Scrabble" issued 29 walks over 47 2/3 innings this summer between the Athletics and Nationals, but he still managed a cool 2.64 ERA. The 31-year-old lefty specialist has held left-handed batters to a .222/.291/.298 slash line for his career. Rosenthal says there are only a few "last-minute details to cover" before the agreement with Seattle is made official. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:54 am

  • Pirates DFA left-hander Jeff Locke
    Pirates designated LHP Jeff Locke for assignment.

    Advice: Pittsburgh didn't want to pay Locke a raise over the $3.025 million he earned in 2016 after watching him post a 5.44 ERA in 127 1/3 innings (19 starts, 11 relief appearances). He would have been entering his second turn through salary arbitration. The 29-year-old left-hander is now a free agent. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:34 pm

  • Keyvius Sampson designated for assignment
    Reds designated RHP Keyvius Sampson for assignment.

    Advice: Sampson, who will turn 26 in January, has put up a 5.60 ERA while splitting time between the Reds' rotation and bullpen the last two seasons. He'll catch on with a minor league deal somewhere. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:10 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

  • Brewers claim Steve Geltz from the Rays
    Brewers claimed RHP Steve Geltz off waivers from the Rays.

    Advice: Geltz was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay earlier this month. He posted an underwhelming 5.74 ERA in 26 2/3 innings of relief this past season for the Rays, but his peripheral numbers have always been decent and the 29-year-old right-hander figures to be in the running for an Opening Day bullpen job next spring with the Brewers.

  • Brewers designate Goforth for assignment
    Brewers designated RHP David Goforth for assignment.

    Advice: With the Brew Crew scooping right-hander Blake Parker up off waivers from the Angels on Wednesday, Goforth will serve as the roster casualty. The 28-year-old right-hander saw just 10 2/3 innings with the big league club last season. They were not successful ones, as Goforth surrendered 14 runs on 18 hits in that space.
