    Brewers talking to reliever Neal Cotts
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (7:10 pm ET) The Brewers are talking to reliever Neal Cotts, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

    Cotts, 34, spent the last two seasons with the Rangers. After an exceptional comeback in 2013, Cotts regressed a bit in 2014, posting a 4.32 ERA. While the two sides have talked, it's unclear if a deal is close. If the Brewers were to reach a deal with Cotts, the team would have to remove a player from the 40-man roster. 


    Phillies designate Cesar Jimenez for assignment on Thursday
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (7:01 pm ET) The Phillies have designated pitcher Cesar Jimenez for assignment on Thursday, the team announced.

    Philadelphia signed pitcher Chad Billingsley to a one-year deal, and needed to make room on the 40-man roster. In order to do so, Jimenez was designated for assignment. The 30-year-old Jimenez posted a 1.69 ERA over 16 innings with the major-league club last year.


    Chad Billingsley signs with Phillies
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (6:57 pm ET) The Phillies have signed pitcher Chad Billingsley, according to MLB.com.

    Billingsley is set to make $1.5 million next year. He's eligible to make more based on whether he can reach certain performance bonuses in the contract. Billingsley has pitched just 12 innings in the majors since 2012 due to elbow issues. He had Tommy John surgery in 2013, but experienced more elbow issues while rehabbing after the surgery. He had season-ending surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in the same elbow, ending his 2014. The Dodgers opted to decline an option on Billingsley, making him a free-agent. 

    The 30-year-old has compiled a 3.65 ERA over 1175 1/3 career innings. 


    Red Sox add LaHair, Paulino and Quintero on minor-league deals
    by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
    (6:32 pm ET) The Red Sox have added Bryan LaHair , Felipe Paulino and Humberto Quintero on minor-league deals, according to the Boston Globe

    All three players will receive invites to spring training. LaHair, 32, spent last season in the minors. He hit .223/.309/.318 over 453 at-bats. He was an All-Star with the Cubs back in 2012.

    Paulino spent last season with the White Sox. After four starts in the majors, he was demoted. It was revealed Paulino was dealing with a shoulder injury. He missed most of the season recovering from the issue.

    Quintero, 35, hit .290/.311/.425 in Triple-A last season. He received just two at-bats in the majors.


    Braves sign pitcher Eric Stults to minor-league deal
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (5:49 pm ET) The Braves announced Thursday they signed pitcher Eric Stults to a minor-league deal, per MLB.com. He also was invited to spring training.

    The 35-year-old Stults went 8-17 with a 4.30 ERA in 32 starts last season for the Padres. He is 4-2 with a 4.26 ERA in four career outings (two starts) at Turner Field.


    Red Sox's Daniel Nava agrees to $1.85M salary to avoid arbitration
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (5:43 pm ET) The Red Sox announced Thursday they agreed to terms with outfielder Daniel Nava, avoiding arbitration. Nava's 2015 salary will be $1.85 million, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

    Nava is in his first year of arbitration. He made $556,500 in 2014.


    Rockies SP prospect Tyler Anderson will be limited at start of camp
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (5:39 pm ET) The Rockies announced Thursday starting pitcher prospect Tyler Anderson will not be ready to pitch when spring camp opens Feb. 21, per The Denver Post.

    "We are taking our time with this and we think it's best to take a conservative approach," trainer Keith Dugger said. "He will participate in camp, but he won't pitch. He'll take part in PFP (pitchers' fielding practice) and other activities. We think the prognosis is good for the long term."

    Anderson had his season end in the Double-A playoffs last season due to elbow soreness. General manager Jeff Bridich said in December that Anderson's rehabilitation was going well and said it was "conceivable" he would be in the mix for a roster spot this spring. However, his slow recovery from the elbow injury could hinder his chances of making the opening day roster.

    Anderson had a great year in 2014 before getting hurt. He went 7-4 with a 1.98 ERA in 23 starts for Double-A Tulsa. The 2011 first-round pick is 23-10 with a 2.39 ERA in 59 minor-league starts.

    "We are going to do what's best for Tyler's long-term future with our club," Bridich said of having no specific timetable for Anderson.


    Twins OF Torii Hunter plans to mentor Aaron Hicks, Byron Buxton
    by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
    (4:38 pm ET) Twins veteran right fielder Torii Hunter said one of his goals this season will be to mentor outfielder Aaron Hicks and top outfield prospect Byron Buxton, per MLB.com.

    "I know Hicks can play, but with Buxton -- I haven't seen video or seen him play, but every word I hear is good about him," Hunter said. "I definitely think when we get to spring training we'll sit down and I'll work out with them and evaluate what they're doing right and what they're doing wrong."

    Hicks said he will lean on Hunter this spring, as he competes with Jordan Schafer for the starting job in center field.

    "I'll be all in his ear the whole time," Hicks said. "He might get annoyed I'll be in his ear so much. He's definitely a guy I'm going to go to.

    "I believe that I have the ability to play center field here for a long time. I've just got to go out there and show people that I can be the center fielder that everybody wants me to be and also that I want myself to be."
