  • Wander Franco being evaluated for arm injury
    Rays SS prospect Wander Franco is headed back to the United States for further evaluation of an arm injury.

    Advice: Franco came down with discomfort in his right biceps earlier this week while playing for Leones del Escogido of the Dominican Winter League, and there's at least some level of concern that it might be serious. The 19-year-old shortstop, widely considered the top overall prospect in baseball, had batted .350/.435/.500 with one home run and one stolen base through five games (23 plate appearances) this winter in the DOWL. Yesterday, 7:31 am
  • Amed Rosario could play multiple positions in 2021
    According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, it's "likely in the cards" that Amed Rosario will be playing different positions in 2021.

    Advice: That could mean that the club considers Andres Gimenez as the front-runner to be the team's starting shortstop and that they're planning on utilizing Rosario in more of a utility role. It could also mean that they plan on making a run at acquiring Francisco Lindor. Or, it could just be smoke and doesn't really mean anything. The 24-year-old slashed .252/.272/.371 with four homers, 15 RBI and a 34/4 K/BB ratio in 147 plate appearances during the 2020 season. Saturday, 3:32 pm
  • Marlins add Jose Devers to 40-man roster
    Marlins purchased the contract of SS Jose Devers.

    Advice: The 20-year-old -- who's the younger cousin of Red Sox superstar Rafael Devers -- hit .322/.391/.390 with no homers, seven RBI and eight stolen bases in 47 games between the Marlins Rookie League club, Class-A Clinton and High-A Jupiter in 2019. The intriguing speedster is now protected from being taken in the Rule-5 draft. Friday, 9:58 pm
  • Phillies purchase contract of Nick Maton
    Phillies purchased the contract of INF Nick Maton.

    Advice: The 23-year-old was a seventh round selection of the Phillies from the 2017 draft. He hit an underwhelming .266/.349/.376 with seven homers, 51 RBI and 12 stolen bases (in 21 attempts) between High-A Clearwater and Double-A Reading in 2019. Maton is considered by most to be a top-15 prospect in the Phillies' organization. Friday, 8:43 pm
  • Indians purchase contract of Gabriel Arias
    Indians purchased the contract of SS Gabriel Arias.

    Advice: The 20-year-old was the prize of the return package received from the Padres in the deal for Mike Clevinger. Arias slashed .302/.339/.470 with 17 homers in 120 games at High-A Lake Elsinore in 2019. Though he's still a couple of years away from joining the Indians, his combination of power and speed makes him a highly coveted asset in dynasty leagues. Friday, 8:23 pm
  • Astros purchase contract of Freudis Nova
    Astros purchased the contract of INF Freudis Nova.

    Advice: The slick-fielding 20-year-old infielder hit .259/.301/.369 with three homers, 29 RBI and 10 stolen bases (17 attempts) in 75 games at Class-A Quad Cities in 2019. Nova is considered to have among the highest ceilings of any prospects in the Astros' system. He should open the 2021 season at Double-A. Friday, 6:20 pm
  • Diamondbacks purchase contract of Geraldo Perdomo
    Diamondbacks purchased the contract of INF Geraldo Perdomo.

    Advice: Perdomo, a highly-regarded 20-year-old, hit .275/.397/.364 with more walks (70) than strikeouts (67) over 116 games between Class A Kane County and High-A Visalia during the 2019 campaign. He also impressed in the Arizona Fall League, slashing .316/.417/.418 with one homer, five RBI and two stolen bases in 21 games. Friday, 5:03 pm
  • Red Sox purchase contract of Hudson Potts
    Red Sox purchased the contract of INF Hudson Potts from Double-A Portland.

    Advice: The 22-year-old was a first round pick of the Padres (24th overall) and came to the Red Sox last season in the Mitch Moreland deal. In 2019, Potts slashed .240/.302/.423 with 17 homers and 65 RBI over 111 games -- mostly at Double-A Amarillo. He'll likely return to Double-A to begin the 2021 campaign. Friday, 4:30 pm
  • Braves claim Jack Mayfield off waivers
    Braves claimed INF Jack Mayfield off waivers from the Astros.

    Advice: Mayfield has put up some nice numbers in the minors but has struggled mightily during his brief time in the majors the last two seasons. He will give the Braves a utility option for their bench. Friday, 11:28 am
  • Nationals purchase Yasel Antuna's contract
    Nationals purchased the contract of INF Yasel Antuna.

    Advice: Antuna was included in the Nats' 60-man player pool this past season, but he's still yet to see any action above A-ball. The 21-year-old is now protected from the Rule 5 Draft. Friday, 9:50 am
  • A's bring aboard infielder Pete Kozma
    Athletics signed INF Pete Kozma to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Advice: Kozma, 32, last appeared in the majors in 2018 with the Tigers. He will give the A's some utility infield depth. Wednesday, 1:23 pm
