Player Notes

  • Gets NRI deal with Detroit
    Davis agreed Monday to a minor-league contract and received an invitation to major-league spring training, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Advice: Davis played 37 games for the Brewers in 2022, and put together a slash line of .224/.344/.237 in 37 games over 76 at-bats. The 30-year-old outfielder will have an outside chance of winning a bench spot with the Tigers if he performs well in the Grapefruit League. 4 minutes ago
  • Angels have 'strong interest' in Zack Britton
    According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Angels have strong interest in free agent left-hander Zack Britton.

    Advice: Nightengale adds that the Angels interest is tied to Britton's price tag dropping from the $9 million he's apparently seeking in negotiations. The 34-year-old southpaw, who has been limited to just 45 relief appearances over the last three seasons due to injury, is among a group of several talented left-handed relievers that are somehow languishing on the open market with spring training rapidly approaching. 13 minutes ago
  • Report: Michael Wacha seeking 2-yr, $30M contract
    According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, free agent right-hander Michael Wacha is seeking a two-year, $30 million contract.

    Advice: Wacha was linked to the Twins earlier this offseason, but they're likely out of the mix now after acquiring right-hander Pablo López from the Marlins in exchange for infielder Luis Arraez. He's also been tabbed as a potential Orioles' target, but they landed southpaw Cole Irvin from the Athletics last week, which likely takes them out of the mix too. The 31-year-old veteran righty posted a stellar 3.32 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 104/31 K/BB ratio across 127 1/3 innings (23 starts) last season for the Red Sox. He's arguably the top starting pitchers left out there on the free agent market. 17 minutes ago
  • Back with Kansas City
    Greinke agreed Monday with the Royals on a one-year contract, Bob Fescoe of 610 Sports Kansas City reports.

    Advice: The deal will pay him $8-to-10 million with the chance for more with performance incentives, according to Mark Feinsand of Greinke returns to the Royals after a 2022 season in which he went 4-9 with a 3.68 ERA and 73:27 K:BB over 137 innings in 26 starts. The 39-year-old right-hander will assuredly be a part of the Kansas City rotation, but his inability to miss bats at this stage of his career renders him little more than a risky streaming option for the 2023 campaign in the majority of fantasy formats. Today, 9:35 am
  • Begins throwing program
    Roberts (elbow) has started a throwing program, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Advice: Roberts posted a video of him throwing at the Cubs' spring training complex in Mesa. The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery in July, and he's expected to miss most -- if not all -- of the 2023 season while recovering. Today, 9:08 am
  • Clears waivers
    Sanchez was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Jan. 5 after clearing waivers.

    Advice: Sanchez has spent time in three organizations this offseason after being moved off the 40-man rosters of the Tigers, Pirates and Diamondbacks, but he looks set to stick around in Arizona now that he's gone unclaimed off waivers upon being designated for assignment in late December. The 26-year-old will likely be invited to big-league spring training and could get the chance to compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster if Arizona decides to keep a third catcher behind Gabriel Moreno and Carson Kelly. Today, 8:59 am
  • Clears waivers
    Widener was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Jan. 5 after clearing waivers.

    Advice: The 28-year-old right-hander thus remains in the Arizona organization after being recently moved off the 40-man roster. Widener made 14 appearances out of the Diamondbacks bullpen in 2022, logging a 3.63 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 17.1 innings. Today, 8:55 am
  • Announces retirement
    O'Day announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that he has retired from professional baseball.

    Advice: The 40-year-old right-hander will step away from the game coming off an injury-plagued 2022 campaign in Atlanta wherein he logged just 21.2 innings with the big club while battling a left calf strain and a sprained right big toe. O'Day appeared in 644 games over parts of 15 seasons in the majors with the Angels, Mets, Rangers, Orioles and Yankees in addition to Atlanta, logging a lifetime 2.59 ERA and 1.03 WHIP. The longtime setup man made his lone All-Star team in 2015 as a member of Baltimore. Today, 8:53 am
  • Back in Arizona on MiLB pact
    The Diamondbacks announced Saturday that Hager was re-signed on a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to MLB spring training.

    Advice: Hager concluded the 2022 season as a member of Arizona's 40-man roster and 28-man active roster before being outrighted to Triple-A Reno in early November. Rather than electing free agency and trying his luck elsewhere, the 29-year-old will stick in Arizona's organization and compete for a utility role in spring training. During his sparse action in the majors in 2022, Hager slashed .240/.345/.280 across 59 plate appearances. Today, 8:49 am
