  • Eloy Jimenez injures quad in winter ball
    White Sox outfield prospect Eloy Jimenez is expected to be shut down until spring training after suffering a quad injury in the Dominican Winter League.

    Advice: It doesn't seem like the ailment is a long-term concern, but the White Sox will obviously be careful with the stud prospect. Jimenez is set to begin the 2019 season back in the minors but should debut at some point during the first half. He batted .337/.384/.577 with 22 homers over 108 games between Double- and Triple-A in 2018. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:47 am
  • Rosenthal: Adams heading back to Nationals
    The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal is reporting free agent Matt Adams is in agreement with the Nationals, pending a physical.

    Advice: Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan hears it's a one-year, $4 million contract. Adams has spent the past few years rotating between a handful of teams, coming up with the Cardinals before being dealt to the Braves, then joining the Nats ahead of last season before a trade sent him back to the Cards mid-year. Now, he's back in the nation's capital on a one-year deal. As he was deployed by the Nats his first time around, the 30-year-old will likely spell Ryan Zimmerman at first base and could see more playing time if the oft-injured Zimmerman can't stay on the field or his decline escalates in 2019.

  • Astros talking to free agents Cruz, Brantley
    Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the Astros would like to add at least one or maybe two hitters and have been talking to free agents Nelson Cruz and Michael Brantley.

    Advice: The team would like to upgrade from outfielder Josh Reddick, whom they have reportedly tried to trade this offseason. Cruz is 38 years old and is limited to a designated hitter role but remains one of the best hitters in the major leagues. He batted .256/.342/.509 with 37 home runs and 97 RBI this past season for the Mariners. The 31-year-old Brantley can play outfield and first base and is coming off a season in which he slashed .309/.364/.468 with 17 home runs, 76 RBI, 89 runs scored and 12 stolen bases.

  • Palka to play left field after Alonso deal?
    Daniel Palka is likely to play primarily left field following the White Sox' acquisition of first baseman Yonder Alonso in a trade with Cleveland on Saturday.

    Advice: White Sox general manager Rick Hahn says he believes Alonso and Jose Abreu will occupy the first base and designated hitter slots in 2019. He is already on record saying the team has no plans to trade the veteran Abreu. Palka was the club's primary DH in 2018 but he will have to find his playing time somewhere else next year. Hahn said it will be up to manager Rick Renteria whether to put the defensively-challenged Palka in left field or have him come off the bench most days. The 27-year-old batted .240/.294/.484 with 27 home runs and 67 RBI in 417 at-bats this past season as a rookie. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:13 am
  • Diamondbacks sign Matt Szczur to minors deal
    Diamondbacks signed OF Matt Szczur to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: The 29-year-old spent the 2018 season in the Padres' organization, slashing .187/.265/.267 in his 84 plate appearances at the big league level. He'll attempt to crack the Opening Day roster as a reserve outfielder, but will most likely begin the year as minor league depth at Triple-A Reno. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:24 pm
