Player Notes

  • Reds acquire RHP Keller in Rule 5 draft
    Reds selected RHP Brad Keller from the Diamondbacks with the fifth pick in the Rule 5 draft.

    Advice: Keller, a sinkerballer, went 10-9 with a 4.68 ERA, a 111/57 K/BB ratio and just seven homers allowed in 130 2/3 innings in Double-A last year. His ceiling isn't particularly high, but he'll be a viable contender for the fifth spot in the Reds' rotation. Rotoworld.com 26 minutes ago

  • Twins are 'still strongly in mix' for Rodney
    According to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press, the Twins are "still strongly in the mix" for free agent reliever Fernando Rodney.

    Advice: Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reported late Wednesday night that there is mutual interest between Rodney and the Tigers, one of the 40-year-old right-hander's former teams. But if Rodney would prefer to pitch for a contender in 2018 -- what could be his final MLB season -- Minnesota obviously makes a lot more sense. There is also said to be some level of interest from the Rangers and Mets, and the Diamondbacks have discussed a possible return. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:37 am

  • TEX 'strongly pursuing' Kelvin Herrera trade
    According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Rangers are "strongly pursuing" Royals closer Kelvin Herrera.

    Advice: Kansas City appears poised for an organizational rebuild, so Herrera -- a free agent next winter -- can probably be had with the right match of young talent. Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported on the first day of the Winter Meetings that the Royals were at least "fielding interest" in the 27-year-old right-hander. Herrera struggled to a 4.25 ERA over 59 2/3 innings in 2017, but he put up a dominant 2.30 ERA with 209 strikeouts in 211 2/3 innings between 2014-2016. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:45 am
  • Kintzler returning to Nats with two-year deal
    Brandon Kintzler has agreed to a two-year free agent contract with the Nationals, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

    Advice: Kintzler finished the 2017 season in Washington and will return to a setup role with the defending NL East champs after fielding interest from several other teams this winter -- some of whom might have given him a chance to close. His new agreement with the Nats carries a $10 million guarantee and it can jump to $16 million if certain incentives are reached and an option is exercised, per USA Today's Bob Nightengale. Kintzler owns a sharp 3.08 ERA in 125 2/3 innings since the beginning of the 2016 campaign, though the 33-year-old right-hander has never generated many swing-and-misses.

  • Report: A's, Cardinals agree to Piscotty swap
    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Athletics have reached an agreement to acquire outfielder Stephen Piscotty from the Cardinals.

    Advice: The Cardinals are expected to receive two minor leaguers in return. Piscotty signed a six-year, $33.5 million contract extension with the Cardinals last April after a promising beginning to his major league career, but he took a step back this past season while dealing with injuries and an ALS diagnosis for his mother Gretchen. Piscotty is a Bay Area native and Stanford graduate, so hopefully getting closer to home will help him in general. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:07 pm
