Player Notes

  • Alex Wimmers inks minors deal with Marlins
    Marlins signed RHP Alex Wimmers to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: A former first-round pick, Wimmers has been unimpressive in his chances in the majors with a 4.38 ERA and ugly 21/19 K/BB ratio across 24 2/3 relief innings. He'll compete for a bullpen job in spring training. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:26 pm

  • Phillies nab Carlos Santana with 3/$60M deal
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Phillies have signed Carlos Santana to a three-year, $60 million contract.

    Advice: MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez says the Phillies also have a $17.5 million club option for 2021. It's an odd fit on the surface, as it means either Rhys Hoskins or perhaps even Santana will play the outfield or Santana will move back third base and bump Maikel Franco from a starting job. Perhaps there will be a series of moves coming from Philly. Santana does give the Phillies a bona-fide bat, as he boasts a career .249/.365/.445 batting line and has averaged 24 homers per season in his seven full years. The Indians will now have to turn to Plan B at first base. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:33 am

  • Jose Ruiz designated for assignment
    Padres designated RHP Jose Ruiz for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Freddy Galvis. A former catcher, Ruiz spent nearly all of 2017 at the High-A level, holding a 5.98 ERA and 45/25 K/BB ratio over 49 2/3 innings. He'll likely clear waivers. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:19 am

  • Padres acquire Freddy Galvis from Phillies
    Padres acquired SS Freddy Galvis from the Phillies for RHP Enyel De Los Santos.

    Advice: The deal is now official after being reported earlier Friday. Galvis gives the Padres a steady presence at shortstop that they've been lacking and offers them a stopgap at the position until Fernando Tatis Jr. is ready. The 28-year-old batted .255/.309/.382 with 12 homers and 14 steals in 2017. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:15 am
  • Indians sign Melvin Upton to minors contract
    Indians signed OF Melvin Upton to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports says Upton will earn $1.5 million if he's in the majors. Upton, 33, hit only .244/.306/.333 over 12 minor league games in 2017 while battling injuries. With Michael Brantley (ankle) unlikely to be ready for Opening Day and Jason Kipnis apparently on the trade block, Upton should have a shot to make the team. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:37 am
