Player Notes

  • Luke Jackson traded to the Braves
    Braves acquired RHP Luke Jackson from the Rangers for RHP Tyrell Jenkins and LHP Brady Feigl.

    Advice: Jackson has thrown 18 major-league innings over the past two seasons with an 8.50 ERA. The 25-year-old reliever throws hard and racked up lots of strikeouts in the minor leagues but struggled with his control. The Braves are likely to use him as a middle reliever if he makes the team at all. His high strikeout rate gives him the potential to move into a higher leverage role if he can limit the walks.

  • BoSox finalize 1-yr, $5.5M deal with Moreland
    Red Sox signed 1B Mitch Moreland to a one-year, $5.5 million contract.

    Advice: The agreement was reached Tuesday during the Winter Meetings and then finalized Thursday after Moreland passed his pre-signing physical. He is expected to serve as Boston's regular first baseman in 2017 after earning Gold Glove honors at the position with Texas in 2016. That means Hanley Ramirez will DH -- a role he's well-suited for.

  • Halos showed interest in Cards' Kolten Wong
    SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports that the Angels showed interest in Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong at the Winter Meetings.

    Advice: Cotillo adds, however, that the Cardinals are "asking a lot" and "unlikely to move him" this offseason. Wong batted just .240/.327/.355 with five home runs and seven stolen bases in 121 games this past year for St. Louis, but he plays good defense and remains an intriguing all-around talent at age 26. It doesn't make much sense for the Cardinals to sell low. Lock him in as their starter at the keystone for 2017. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:21 pm

  • Rockies 'remain deeply involved' for Trumbo
    According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the Rockies "remain deeply involved in talks for free agent Mark Trumbo."

    Advice: It echoes a recent report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, who suggested Wednesday that the Rockies are not done spending despite handing out a five-year, $70 million contract to Ian Desmond at the Winter Meetings. Trumbo led the majors in homers this past year with 47 and his bat would obviously fit well at Coors Field, though there are defensive limitations. He'd have to play a lot of first base in the National League, and it's scary to imagine him trying to cover any ground in the Colorado outfield. What the Rockies really need is pitching.

  • Rangers sign Cesar Puello to minors deal
    Rangers signed OF Cesar Puello to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Puello posted a cool .413 on-base percentage in 78 games this past season with the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, though it came with only five home runs in 289 plate appearances. The 25-year-old outfielder has never appeared in a game at the major league level and seems doubtful to crack the Opening Day roster with Texas. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:59 am
