Athletics' Billy Butler would welcome return to Royals


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:35 am ET) Athletics designated hitter Billy Butler said he would love to return to the Royals later in his career, according to the Kansas City Star.

After spending the first eight seasons of his career in Kansas City, Butler signed a three-year deal with Oakland during the offseason. Though he left the Royals, Butler said there is no hard feelings. "It’s disappointing, but you understand that the game’s a business and I didn’t leave on bad terms," Butler said. "I’d be more than happy to come back. That’s home for me. I’ll always be forever tied to the Royals organization and the community there."

The 28-year-old hit .271/.323/.379 over 549 at-bats last year.

(1/24/2015) Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said outfielder Ryan Raburn will enter spring training without restrictions, reports the Plain Dealer on Saturday.

Raburn underwent surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his knee in mid-September. He finished 2014 with a .200/.250/.297 line along with four home runs and 22 RBI in 195 at-bats.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) The Rangers and first baseman Mitch Moreland have agreed on a one-year deal, avoiding salary arbitration, the team announced Friday.

Moreland was reportedly looking for $3.35 million while the team was offering $2.75 million. The two settled on $2.95 million with $25,000 in performace bonuses. Moreland hit .246 with 23 RBI in 2014 for Texas.


Mariners' Jesus Montero down to 235 following 40-pound weight loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) Mariners trainer Rick Griffin said Jesus Montero is already down to 235 pounds, which is the playing weight Seattle wanted him at last season. General manager Jack Zduriencik said of his 40-pound weight loss: "It appears maybe the light has come on for him."

Zduriencik added Montero will be "a guy we'll take a good look at" this spring.


Rangers' Moreland having 'no issues' with surgically repaired ankle


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Rangers first baseman/outfielder Mitch Moreland is pleased with his progress after undergoing left ankle reconstruction surgery in June, according to FOX Sports Southwest.

"Right now, I'll be full speed Day 1,"Moreland said. "I'm right on track with where I've been the past offseasons. Eager to get back on there and get on the field. It's been a while."

Moreland has hit off a tee and hasn't had any issues running. 

"It feels a ton better," he said. "I've had some nagging things here and there with it (in the past). It got to the point where it was a little beyond nagging to the point where I felt like I had no strength there. I have no issues with it right now. It's feeling strong. It's feeling good."


Gattis to play at 1B, DH for Astros; Bad news for Singleton, Carter?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) With the signing of Colby Rasmus, the Astros have an even more crowded outfield, but it also means Houston won't have to lean on Evan Gattis to play primarly in left field.

In fact, Astros general manager Jeff Lunhow expects Gattis to occasionally play in left field, but to primarily play at first base and DH. Although, that doesn't bode well for playing time for Jon Singleton and Chris Carter.

“We don’t know what Gattis is going to look like in left field,” Luhnow said, per the Houston Chronicle. “If he’s good out there or adequate, I’m sure he’ll get some at-bats out there. Is he going to be our everyday left fielder? I can’t imagine that happening with the guys that we have, but we want to have that bat in the lineup.

“Guys that have options are going to have to prove to us that they belong in the big leagues. I don’t think it’s just Singleton. Like I said, we’ve got multiple options at every position on the diamond now. So, you know, players may not be playing their preferred position -- that puzzle will come together in spring training. We’re only guessing to try to figure it out right now.”


Mitch Moreland, Rangers discuss arbitration numbers Friday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Designated hitter Mitch Moreland and the Rangers exchanged arbitration numbers Friday with Moreland asking for $3.35 million and Texas offering $2.75 million, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Moreland hit .246 in 167 at-bats in 2014, with 23 RBI and two home runs.


Yankees' Beltran: 'This year I just feel like I need to prove myself again'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2015) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran said during an interview with YES Network that he is regaining the range of motion in his elbow following surgery. Beltran played with a bone spur in his right elbow during the 2014 season.

"The strengthening program, you know, we kind of basically did everything," Beltran said, per NJ.com. "So the range of motion is there. Bending is there. That's the most important part of rehab. Trying to be able to get that range of motion back."

The 37-year-old Beltran is looking forward to returning to the diamond in 2015 after the elbow injury limited him in '14. He hit just .233 with 15 home runs, 23 doubles and 49 RBI in 109 games.

"Last year was such a crazy year for me with the injury, trying to play through it," he said. "I didn't have the year that I was looking forward to having. This year I just feel like I need to prove myself again. Baseball if a roller coaster."


Astros, Chris Carter avoid arbitration


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) The Astros have avoided arbitration with designated hitter Chris Carter, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Carter is set to make $4.175 million next season. He's coming off a season in which he hit .227/.308/.491 over 507 at-bats. The 28-year-old hit 37 home runs. 


Adam Dunn retiring after 14 seasons in the majors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2015) Veteran slugger Adam Dunn will carry through with his plans to retire, agent Brian Peters confirmed to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Dunn announced in late August his plans to retire following the 2014 season.

The 35-year-old Dunn calls it a career after 14 seasons in the majors. He hit .237, but he finishes with a .364 on-base percentage, .490 slugging percentage and .854 OPS. He also totaled 462 home runs in 2,001 career games.

Dunn played for the White Sox and Athletics in 2014. He played most of his career with the Reds, but he also played for the Nationals and Diamondbacks.


Orioles outfielder Delmon Young could see more playing time


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) Orioles outfielder Delmon Young could see more playing time this season, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Executive vice president Dan Duquette said the team was happy with Young's contribution in a part-time role in 2014, but added that Young could see his playing time increase this year. "Depending on how the team is structured, he could have a more vital role this season," Duqette said. 

The Orioles are still looking to for a replacement for Nelson Cruz, and Young could be used to take some of those at-bats. The club has also flirted with Colby Rasmus, but nothing has been accomplished on that front.

Young hit .302/.337/.442 in 242 at-bats last year. 


Orioles officially sign Delmon Young


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2015) The Orioles have announced the signing of outfielder Delmon Young on a one year deal.

The two sides came to an agreement in December, but the deal was contingent on a physical. Young passed the physical, and is officially a member of the club. He's set to make $2.25 million next season, and can earn up to $750,000 in incentives. 

Young hit .302/.337/.442 in 242 at-bats last year.


Orioles, Delmon Young agree to one-year deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2014) The Orioles have agreed to a one-year deal with outfielder Delmon Young worth $2.25 million, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports. The deal is pending a physical in January.

Young had been in dicussions with the Orioles in November but was reported to be seeking a two-year deal after hitting .302/.337/.442 line with seven home runs and 30 RBI in 242 at-bats with Baltimore in 2014. The two sides were said to be back in discussions earlier in December and have now come to terms on a deal. Young made more than half of his appearances with the team in the designated hitter role last season, but it's possible he could be used more in the outfield with the team losing multiple outfielders this offseason.


Agent: Outfielder Delmon Young hoping to remain in Baltimore


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Outfielder Delmon Young is reportedly not close to making a decision on where to play in 2015, but his agent said the Orioles "absolutely" remain in play, according to MASN.com.

The 29-year-old veteran is hoping to get a multi-year extension with the club, but is still keeping his options open, his agent said.

"Everything has been very positive," said Joel Wolfe of Wasserman Media Group, who met with the Orioles during the Winter Meetings in San Diego. "They value Delmon and realize what he brings to the table, and hopefully it's just a matter of getting it right."

Young hit .302 in 83 games, with 11 doubles, seven home runs and 30 RBI.
