  • Rockies 'showing continued interest' in Trumbo
    Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports the Rockies are "showing continued interest" in free agent Mark Trumbo.

    Advice: His market has been slow to develop but could pick up once Edwin Encarnacion finds a new home. Trumbo is tied to draft-pick compensation and is a poor defensive player, which might also limit his options. Per Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun, Trumbo is projected to land a four-year deal in the range of $57 million. That would be identical to the deal Nelson Cruz signed with Seattle two years ago. Trumbo's power would play well at Coors Field. He's clubbed eight homers in 12 career games at Colorado. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:55 pm

  • Mets working to trade Granderson and Bruce
    According to Newsday's Marc Carig, the Mets are "positioned to move fairly quickly" in regards to trading either Curtis Granderson or Jay Bruce.

    Advice: The Mets' outfield is already well-stocked with Yoenis Cespedes coming back and up-and-comers Michael Conforto and Brandon Nimmo ready to take on bigger roles. That makes Bruce and Granderson expendable, though the most likely scenario is that New York will trade one and keep the other. The Blue Jays, who are likely to lose Jose Bautista in free agency, have already shown a keen interest in Granderson. He could be playing for a new team by the end of the Winter Meetings.

  • Texas 'far from optimistic' on Desmond deal
    According to TR Sullivan of MLB.com, the Rangers are "far from optimistic" a deal will get done with free agent Ian Desmond.

    Advice: This comes on the heels of a report from MLB Network's Jon Morosi, who said the Rangers' talks with Desmond had "intensified" in recent days. The Rangers are obviously keen on re-signing him, but Desmond won't come cheap after a productive year that included 22 HR, 86 RBI and 21 steals. Desmond turned down the Rangers' one-year qualifying offer, which means Texas will get a compensatory pick if he signs elsewhere. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:44 pm

  • Rangers talks with Ian Desmond intensifying
    Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Rangers talks with Ian Desmond have intensified in recent days.

    Advice: Perhaps as it's looking more and more likely that the Nationals may end up with Andrew McCutchen, the Rangers are moving on to the next best option to fill their hole in center field. Desmond had a resurgent season in Texas in 2016, slashing .285/.335/.446 with 22 homers, 86 RBI and 21 stolen bases. His fantasy value would certainly be helped by staying in Arlington.

  • Braves sign Lane Adams to minor league deal
    Braves signed OF Lane Adams to a minor league deal.

    Advice: The 27-year-old speedster hit .266/.342/.388 with 10 homers, 56 RBI and 44 stolen bases in 121 minor league games between the Cubs and Yankees in 2016. He makes for a nice depth signing for the Braves. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:33 am

  • Astros and Carlos Beltran agree to $16M deal
    Buster Olney of ESPN reports that the Astros have agreed to a one-year, $16 million contract with Carlos Beltran.

    Advice: The Astros have won out over the Yankees, Red Sox and Blue Jays who were also active in the bidding for the veteran slugger. Beltran returns to the Astros where he had a magical half-season in 2004, slashing .258/.368/.559 with 23 homers, 53 RBI and 28 stolen bases following a mid-season trade from the Royals. He's expected to function primarily as the designated hitter for the Astros, but could see time in the corner outfield as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:41 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.

  • Nationals continue to work on McCutchen trade
    According to Jim Bowden of ESPN, the Pirates and Nationals are still working on a potential trade involving Andrew McCutchen.

    Advice: The two sides are reportedly "working on a lot of different angles" and appear intent on getting a deal done. The superstar would be a tremendous fit in center field for the Nationals while allowing Trea Turner to shift back to shortstop. When there's this much smoke, there's usually fire, so look for the two sides to continue working until a deal gets consummated. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:58 pm
  • Phillies do not tender contract to Cody Asche
    Phillies non-tendered INF/OF Cody Asche.

    Advice: Asche was designated for assignment earlier in the day on Friday, and unable to find a trade partner the Phillies cut bait with the utility man. The 26-year-old hit a disappointing .213/.284/.350 with four homers and 18 RBI in 218 plate appearances in 2016. There's enough talent here that another team may be willing to take a shot on him as a free agent. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:18 pm

    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 sent 1B Chris Colabello outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The 33-year-old missed the majority of the 2016 season due to an 80-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs and was very ineffective during his limited time at the big league level. He's no longer on the Blue Jays' 40-man roster. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:29 pm

  • Twins avoid arbitration with Eduardo Escobar
    Twins and INF Eduardo Escobar avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.6 million contract.

    Advice: It's a small raise over the $2.15 million that Escobar took home in 2016. More useful for his defensive prowess and versatility than with the bat, the 27-year-old infielder slashed a mere .236/.280/.338 with six homers and 37 RBI in 105 games for the Twins in 2016.

  • 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

  • Avisail Garcia, White Sox avoid arbitration
    White Sox and OF Avisail Garcia avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3 million contract.

    Advice: Garcia has been a big disappointment to this point, putting up a .250/.308/.380 batting line in his first three full seasons in Chicago. He was arbitration-eligible for a second time this winter. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:44 pm

  • Nationals non-tender speedy OF Ben Revere
    Nationals non-tendered OF Ben Revere.

    Advice: The move was expected, as Revere wasn't worthy of a raise in arbitration following an awful .217/.260/.300 batting line this past season. He hit over .300 in each of the previous three seasons, however, and will turn just 29 next May, so some team will give the speedster a shot. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:35 pm

  • Giants looking four power outfield bat
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Giants have talked to the Tigers about J.D. Martinez.

    Advice: Jon Morosi of MLB Network first reported of the Giants' interest in Martinez last month. Passan says that the Giants are "exploring all avenues" in their quest to land a power outfield bat. The Tigers are expect to shed payroll this winter and Martinez is looking like one of the most likely guys to go. The Phillies are another club that's interested. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:58 pm
  • Cody Asche designated for assignment
    Phillies designated INF/OF Cody Asche for assignment.

    Advice: Asche has shown flashes for the Phils but is a .240/.298/.385 hitter over parts of four seasons in the majors. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for waiver claim David Rollins. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:10 pm

  • Phillies have discussed J.D. Martinez trade
    MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that the Tigers and Phillies have had trade talks involving J.D. Martinez "but talks are not progressing."

    Advice: Morosi says that the Phillies are looking for a "short-term outfield bat," which is a little odd since they can't realistically consider themselves contenders in 2017. Perhaps they'd wind up flipping Martinez to another team in July before he reaches free agency next winter. The Tigers are looking to slash payroll, and Martinez is looking likely to be dealt. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:12 am
  • Nationals expected to non-tender Ben Revere
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Nationals are expected to non-tender Ben Revere.

    Advice: MLBTradeRumors.com projected Revere to earn $6.3 million in his final year of arbitration eligibility, which is a salary the Nats evidently aren't comfortable in paying. Revere is coming off a season where he hit an ugly .217/.260/.300, but he's a career .285/.320/.342 batter and could bounce back in a new setting. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:39 am

  • Ian Desmond a backup CF option for Nationals
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Nationals are considering Adam Eaton, Dexter Fowler, Carlos Gomez and Ian Desmond as backup options for center field.

    Advice: Heyman notes that the Nationals "remain focused" on a trade for Andrew McCutchen, but they are preparing backup plans in the event they're not able to work something out for the Pirates outfielder. Desmond is the most interesting name of the aforementioned bunch, of course, given that he's spent most of his career with the Nats. He played shortstop for them, but Washington appears intent on moving Trea Turner in to his natural position of shortstop and adding a center fielder. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:53 am

  • Kirk Nieuwenhuis avoids arbitration
    Brewers and OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $900,000 contract.

    Advice: It's a split contract, as he'll make that much if he's in the majors but his salary will fall to $275,000 if he's in the minors. Nieuwenhuis hit just .209/.324/.385 for the Brewers last season but did pop 13 homers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:40 am
  • Royals getting 'multiple inquiries' on Dyson
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Royals are getting "multiple inquiries" on Jarrod Dyson.

    Advice: Dyson could be an underrated target for a team looking for a center fielder, as he's excellent defensively and is coming off a career-best .728 OPS. As Crasnick notes, however, Dyson is currently in line to serve on the strong side of a platoon in right field for the Royals, so they'd probably have to acquire another outfielder if they dealt the speedster. Dyson is 32 and is slated for free agency after next season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:37 am

  • White Sox likelier to trade Eaton than Abreu
    A rival executive told MLB Network's Jon Morosi that the White Sox are more likely to trade Adam Eaton than Jose Abreu at the winter meetings.

    Advice: The White Sox seem to be in the mode of listening to trade offers for virtually anyone on their roster, but it's not surprising that Eaton appears likelier than Abreu to be dealt. The outfielder should be able to fetch a nice return, as he's a career .284/.357/.414 hitter and is under team control for just $38.4 million through 2021. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:05 am

  • Nats remain 'in lead' for Andrew McCutchen
    MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that the Nationals remain "in (the) lead" for Andrew McCutchen, although the Rangers are "also in contact" with the Pirates.

    Advice: If McCutchen is traded to the Nationals there's a good chance it will happen on Friday, as the acquisition will affect what they do at the non-tender deadline. Cutch would take over in center field for the Nats, while Trea Turner would move to his natural position of shortstop and Danny Espinosa would be non-tendered. The Rangers are also looking for a center fielder, so they can't be ruled out as a serious contender for the former MVP. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:59 am
  • Yankees considering Holliday for DH spot
    Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that Matt Holliday is "a name the Yankees have thrown around."

    Advice: The expectation is that Edwin Encarnacion will likely command a contract beyond what the Yankees are comfortable with, but they have backup options that include Carlos Beltran, Mike Napoli and Holliday. Holliday batted .246/.322/.461 with 20 homers and 62 RBI in an injury-shortened 2016 season and is probably best off as a designated hitter at this point in his career. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:51 am

  • Report: Fowler's reps aiming for $18M per yr
    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, Dexter Fowler's representatives believe he can get $18 million per season on a multi-year deal.

    Advice: What a difference a year makes. Fowler ended up settling for a one-year, $8 million deal to return to the Cubs last offseason after draft pick compensation impacted his market, but the outlook is much rosier this time after he batted .276/.393/.447 with 13 homers, 48 RBI, and 13 steals over 125 games in 2016. Granted, Fowler wasn't nearly as productive after the start of June, but he's a switch-hitter with proven on-base ability. Heyman hears that the Cardinals, Blue Jays, and Giants are among the clubs believed to have interest. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:29 pm

    Advice: Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reported the contract terms. Van Slyke earned $1.225 million in 2016 while being limited to just 52 games due to back and wrist injuries. The 30-year-old required season-ending surgery on his right wrist in August. He was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:37 pm

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Thursday that Steven Souza (hip) is expected to be 100 percent for spring training.

    Advice: Souza underwent surgery in September for a left hip impingement, after posting a disappointing .247/.303/.409 batting line with 17 homers and 49 RBI in 120 games this summer for the Rays. He's setting up as a decent late-round gamble for fantasy drafts in 2017. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:36 pm

  • Bucs, Nats have 'ramped up' McCutchen talks
    ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Pirates and Nationals have "ramped up" discussions toward an Andrew McCutchen trade.

    Advice: Stark hears the Nationals "would like to make this deal [Thursday]" -- before Friday's non-tender deadline -- because of the ripple effects it would create. There's talk of the Nationals sending top outfield prospect Victor Robles to Pittsburgh in return, along with a number of other pieces. Stark says the Pirates also want "controllable starting pitching." This thing could move quickly. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:15 am
  • Orioles sign Logan Schafer to minors deal
    Orioles signed OF Logan Schafer to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Schafer batted just .238 with a .660 OPS in 74 plate appearances (26 games) this past season for the Twins and he owns a brutal .611 OPS for his career. He seems doubtful to crack the Orioles' Opening Day roster and should merely function as organizational outfield depth in 2017. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:28 am

  • MLB does away with All-Star Game homefield
    The new collective bargaining agreement has done away with the rule giving homefield advantage in the World Series to the league that wins the All-Star Game.

    Advice: Great news for fans of logic and reason. It was truly one of the dumbest things in professional sports. Homefield advantage for the World Series will now be determined by the pennant winner with the best regular-season record, as it should be. Also a major new part of the new CBA: the minimum (non-concussion) disabled list stint is now 10 games instead of 15. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:51 am

  • Reports: MLB, MLBPA agree on new CBA
    Multiple outlets are reporting that MLB and the MLBPA have agreed on a new, five-year collective bargaining agreement.

    Advice: Baseball fans can breathe easy, as it looks like there will be no threat of a work stoppage any time in the near future. Per the New York Post's Joel Sherman, the luxury tax threshold will open at around $195 million and rise over the course of the new agreement to eventually bring it to approximately $210-215 million. Sherman further relays that there will be a penalty of 60-70% for those who exceed that threshold by a significant margin. Also of note in the new CBA, while free-agent compensation will still take place in the form of the signing team surrendering a draft pick, first-round picks will no longer be in play on that front. There was also discussion of increasing the 25-man roster to 26, but that ultimately did not come to pass. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:07 pm

  • Report: McCutchen trade likelihood at 80%
    John Perrotto of FanRag Sports hears that there is an "80% chance" that the Pirates trade Andrew McCutchen by the end of the winter meetings.

    Advice: The smoke surrounding a potential McCutchen trade thickened considerably on Wednesday, with FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reporting that the outfielder is potentially the "most likely to go" among all rumored trade candidates in the early going. The Pirates aren't just fielding calls, either, as Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan relayed (also on Wednesday) that the team is aggressively courting potential trade and reaching out themselves. The Nationals, Rangers and Mariners have been linked to McCutchen this month. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:03 pm
  • Cubs unlikely to re-sign Dexter Fowler
    Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer indicated Wednesday that the club is unlikely to re-sign Dexter Fowler.

    Advice: It's not a big surprise, especially after the club signed Jon Jay on Tuesday. "We'd never close the door on Dexter, but we're aware that's something that may not happen for us," said Hoyer. Fowler rejected a qualifying offer from the Cubs and while he had to settle for a one-year deal to return to Chicago last offseason, he should have no problem landing a lucrative multi-year contract this time around. The Blue Jays are among the teams who reportedly have interest. The Cubs appear set to move on with Jay and Albert Almora in center field, but Jason Heyward is also an option if they want to go with Ben Zobrist and Kyle Schwarber in the corner spots.

  • Pirates continue to explore McCutchen trade
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Pirates continue to explore a potential trade involving Andrew McCutchen.

    Advice: In fact, Rosenthal writes that of all the big names available in trade, McCutchen "might be the most likely to go." The 30-year-old is coming off a career-worst season at the plate and advanced metrics weren't kind to him in center field, but he's owed just $14 million next season with a 14.5 million club option for 2018, so plenty of teams figure to be willing to take a chance on a turnaround. The Pirates are obviously going to ask for a major haul to give up their franchise player and could decide to hang on to him if their asking price isn't met. Rosenthal hears that the Nationals remain interested and also mentions the Rangers as a potential trade partner. Both clubs have the chips to get a deal done. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:09 am
  • Report: Granderson of interest to Blue Jays
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that Curtis Granderson is of interest to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The Mets are also shopping Jay Bruce after re-signing Cespedes, so the Blue Jays have interest in both of them depending on the possible asking price. The Mets would surely prefer to keep Granderson because he's capable of playing center field and is a proven performer in New York, but he's reportedly drawing more interest than Bruce. In addition to the trade market, the Blue Jays have shown interest in Dexter Fowler, among others, in free agency. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:47 am
  • Granderson receiving more interest than Bruce
    Marc Carig of Newsday reports that Curtis Granderson has received more trade interest than Jay Bruce.

    Advice: The Mets managed to keep Yoenis Cespedes with a four-year, $110 million contract, so most have speculated that the next step will be to trade Bruce. Teams like the Blue Jays have reportedly expressed interest, but the inquiries on Granderson simply give them more options to upgrade in other areas. Both players are due to become free agents after 2017. Granderson, who turns 36 next March, slugged 30 homers with a .799 OPS (111 OPS+) in 2016. He's owed $15 million next season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:24 am
  • Rockies downplay possible Holliday reunion
    Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich downplayed the possibility of a reunion with free agent Matt Holliday.

    Advice: Holliday has said that he's open to a return to the Rockies, but given the team's outfield depth, he'd be looking at a full-time move to first base. He just saw his first exposure at the position in 2016, so the Rockies are mulling over the potential alternatives. "We have just now started looking into the reality of Matt," said Bridich. "With the way that our outfield is situated… the outfield for Matt doesn’t make a whole lot of sense right now. So right now we are just trying to wrap our minds around whether he’s a viable option at first base." The Rockies reportedly haven't ruled out a return for Mark Reynolds and Chris Carter, who was recently designated for assignment by the Brewers, could also be a possibility at first base.

  • NYY, BOS, HOU, TOR most active for Beltran
    Chris Cotillo of SB Nation hears from a source that the Yankees, Red Sox, Astros, and Blue Jays remain the most active clubs in the bidding for free agent Carlos Beltran.

    Advice: The same thing was reported by Rob Bradford of WEEI.com earlier this month and apparently things haven't changed. The Blue Jays recently signed Kendrys Morales, so Beltran would be forced to see regular time in right field in his age-40 season if he ends up in Toronto. It's not the best fit, but the AL East is figuring prominently in the negotiations. Beltran, who was not eligible for a qualifying offer since he was traded midseason, can likely be had for a one-year deal. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:49 am

  • Blue Jays showing 'strong interest' in Fowler
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports confirms the Blue Jays are showing "strong interest" in Dexter Fowler.

    Advice: MLB Network's Jon Morosi linked the two parties 10 days ago, and it sounds like talks may be heating up. Fowler represents the kind of high-OBP switch-hitting outfielder the Blue Jays covet, but a host of other high-budget teams like him too. He slashed .276/.393/.447 with 13 home runs, 48 RBI, 13 stolen bases, and 84 runs scored in 125 regular-season games this past season for the World Series champs. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:10 pm

  • Possible the Mets move Curtis Granderson?
    Marc Carig of Newsday hears "it's possible" Curtis Granderson gets moved.

    Advice: Jay Bruce feels like the Mets' most obvious trade chip following the re-signing of Yoenis Cespedes, but the team will also apparently shop Granderson (and his $15 million salary for 2017). Granderson is coming off a season in which he slugged 30 home runs and played in 150 games, but he does turn 36 years old next March. Michael Conforto is probably off the table for New York this winter. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:12 pm
  • Report: Mets weigh J.D. Martinez as fallback
    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Mets have some interest in Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez as a fallback option in case Yoenis Cespedes signs elsewhere.

    Advice: The Mets' top priority would be to keep Yoenis Cespedes, but that's no sure thing since he's arguably the top free agent in this year's class. Martinez makes sense as a potential alternative, as he's also a right-handed hitter and the Tigers are known to be shopping him as they attempt to trim payroll. The 29-year-old hit 22 homers with a .908 OPS this past season and is due to become a free agent after 2017. Martinez could be a fit with other teams also interested in Cespedes, especially if he returns to New York. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:26 am

    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
