    Braves trade RPs Hale, Schlosser to Rockies for two minor leaguers
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (3:42 pm ET) The Braves traded pitchers David Hale and Gus Schlosser to the Rockies on Friday in exchange for catchers Jose Briceno and Chris O’Dowd.

    Hale went 4-5 with a 3.30 ERA in 45 relief appearances for Atlanta in 2014. He struck out 44 batters and issued 39 walks in 87 1/3 innings.

    Schlosser made his MLB debut in 2014, going 0-1 with a 7.64 ERA in 15 relief outings for Atlanta. He struck out eight and walked six in 17 2/3 innings.

    Briceno hit .283 with 12 home runs, 23 doubles and 50 RBI in 84 games for Class A Asheville in 2014. He has a career .280/.433/.776 slash line over five minor-league seasons.

    O'Dowd hit .271 with five home runs, 27 doubles and 48 RBI in 113 games between high Class A Modesto and Double-A Tulsa in 2014. He has a career .260/.362/.689 slash line over three minor-league seasons.


    Tigers' Dombrowski: Steven Moya 'relatively close' to making impact
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (3:31 pm ET) Tigers outfield prospect Steven Moya, who was the MVP of the Eastern League (Double-A) in 2014, is expected to open the season at Triple-A Toledo, per the Detroit Free Press.

    "I don't know if I'd say we're buying time for Moya," Tigers president and general manager Dave Dombrowski said last week. "Probably when a guy as talented as Moya is ready, he'll make his way onto a team. I don't think we could absolutely say, trying to win a pennant, trying to win a world championship, you can count on him being 100 percent ready."

    The 23-year-old Moya hit .276 with a .555 slugging percentage, .861 OPS, 33 doubles, 35 home runs and 105 RBI in 133 games last season at Double-A. He has a career .251/.444/.739 slash line over six minor-league seasons.

    Moya also made a brief appearance in the majors last season, batting .375 (3 for 8) in 11 games.

    "I think the development time will be good for him" Dombrowski said. "Could he come up and produce at some time during the year? Yes. He's relatively close."


    Braves sign catcher Jesus Flores to minor-league contract
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (3:23 pm ET) The Braves signed catcher Jesus Flores to a minor-league contract Friday, which includes an invite to spring training, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    Flores has not played in the majors since 2012 with the Nationals. He spent the 2014 season with the Royals' Triple-A affiliate at Omaha, batting .248 with five home runs and 21 RBI in 40 games.


    Pirates sign Wilkin Castillo, Josh Wall to minor-league deals
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (3:18 pm ET) The Pirates have signed catcher Wilkin Castillo and pitcher Josh Wall to minor-league contracts, which include invites to spring training.

    Rockies sign Betancourt, Quintanilla to minor-league deals
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (3:11 pm ET) The Rockies signed former closer Rafael Betancourt and infielder Omar Quintanilla to minor-league contracts Friday, per MLB.com. 

    Quintanilla spent the last two seasons with the Mets, while Betancourt did not pitch in the majors in 2014 as he was working his way back from Tommy John surgery. He did pitch in the minors, going 2-0 with a 4.66 ERA.

    "I have another chance," Betancourt said by phone from his offseason home in Orlando, Fla. "Compared to how it was last year or even when I was pitching in games, I feel a lot more normal now.

    "When I threw for the Rockies last week, I threw all my pitches -- fastball, changeup and breaking ball. Last year, I didn't throw any breaking balls, because my arm felt weird. It's 16 months after surgery and everything is going well. I'm also happy the Rockies stuck with me; they have a new GM [Jeff Bridich] but still were there for me, and I appreciate that."


    Ronald Belisario not likely to sign with Blue Jays
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (3:02 pm ET) Reliever Ronald Belisario is no longer likely to sign a contract with the Blue Jays, and it appears he will sign with another team, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

    Blue Jays sign veteran Ramon Santiago to minor-league deal
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (3:01 pm ET) The Blue Jays announced Friday they signed infielder Ramon Santiago to a minor-league contract, which includes an invite to spring training.

    The 35-year-old Santiago has spent most of his 13-year MLB career in the AL. He spent his first season in the NL in 2014 with the Reds. He hit .246 with two home runs and 17 RBI in 75 games for Cincinnati last season.


    Brewers designate Elian Herrera for assignment Friday
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (2:59 pm ET) Brewers infielder/outfielder Elian Herrera was designated for assignment Friday to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for pitcher Neal Cotts.

    Herrera hit .274 with no home runs, one triple, seven doubles and five RBI in 69 games for Milwaukee in 2014.


    Red Sox's Workman preparing to compete for a spot in rotation
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (2:52 pm ET) With the offseason acquisitions of Rick Porcello, Wade Miley and Justin Masterson, Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman chances of making the opening-day rotation have significantly decreased. Workman knows his best chance of making the roster will be as a reliever, but he still expects to show up to spring training competing for a spot in the rotation, per ESPN.

    “I’m going in there looking forward to competing, hopefully winning a spot,” Workman said. “I’d like to be in the rotation. I’m hoping I can win a job in the starting rotation but we’ll see how that goes. I’m doing everything I can right now to prepare for it and get ready to put myself in a good spot to compete for that job.” 

    Workman struggled last season, going 1-10 with a 5.17 ERA in 19 appearances at the major-league level. Although, most of his struggles came as a starter. He went 1-9 with a 5.36 ERA in 15 starts, while going 0-1 with a 2.84 ERA in four relief appearances.

    “My stuff kind of fell off at the end of last year,” Workman said. “I wasn’t bringing the same stuff to the table that I was at the beginning of the year and that made it tougher on me. But even with that, I feel like if I would have executed better I still would have been able to get the job done."


    Brewers still interested in adding closer-type reliever
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (2:48 pm ET) Brewers assistant general Gord Ash said Friday the team is still in the market for a closer-type reliever, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He said the team would like to make a move before spring training opens.

    Ash said Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon and free agent reliever Francisco Rodriguez are in play for the Brewers.

    However, there is no apparent interest in signing former Nationals closer Rafael Soriano, and Ash said former Tigers reliever Joba Chamberlain doesn't fit their plans either.
