Jim Adduci headed to play overseas after release by Rangers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:27 pm ET) The Rangers announced Monday outfielder Jim Adduci was placed on unconditional release waivers for purpose of playing in Asia in 2015. Adduci was designated for assignment Friday.

Adduci hit .189 with one home run, four doubles and eight RBI in 61 games for the Rangers since 2013.


Twins, Torii Hunter have 'common interest'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:03 am ET) Veteran outfielder Torii Hunter said Saturday he favors the Twins in free agency and he could make a decision soon about which team he signs with, according to the Pioneer Press.

"(Twins general manager) Terry Ryan and I have talked several times, and there's definitely a common interest there, for sure," Hunter said.

The Twins drafted Hunter in the first round of the 1993 draft. He appeared in games for Minnesota from 1997-2007 before playing for the Angels and Tigers. 

"I would come over to win," he said of his reasons for potentially returning to Minnesota. "All that stuff everybody talks about, 'a great guy in the clubhouse,' that's extra -- that's not No. 1. The No. 1 thing is look at my numbers. They're still the same, one of the most consistent hitters in baseball over my career.

"But sometimes I guess my character and clubhouse presence and just that fire that I have, I think, overshadows a lot. But no matter what, if I didn't put up those numbers, I don't care what kind of personality or drive you have, not many people are going to want you. The only reason you're going to want me is because of my play."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Orioles, Mariners and Blue Jays could all have interest, according to Heyman.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Report: Braves outfielder Justin Upton 'will be moved'


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

“Justin Upton will be moved,” said another team executive, per the New York Post.

However, if any team is going to trade for Upton, the price will not be cheap. Reports have shown the Braves are asking for more in return than what they received for Jason Heyward.

Upton will make $14.5 million in 2015 and then become a free agent. In 2014, Upton hit .270 with 29 home runs and 102 RBI.

Report: Reds considering dealing high-priced veterans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) The Reds are considering lowering their payroll by trading top position players, including slugging outfielder Jay Bruce, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

The team has made no secret of its desire to give up one of its starting pitchers, including premier talents such as Johnny Cueto and Mat Latos. But the Reds are also discussing possible swaps involving two-time All-Star right fielder Jay Bruce, major league sources have told Rosenthal.

The Reds have $75.5 million committed in 2015 and could try to vault back into playoff contention behind a healthy Joey Votto and Bruce. But it might not be a viable financial option. They spent $114 million on payroll last year and are projected to be at $120 million next season. Trading Bruce and one starting pitcher would reduce that figure significantly - Bruce alone will be owed $12 million.

One problem with that tactic is that the Reds would be trading an undervalued Bruce coming off a poor season in which he batted .217 with 18 home runs. However, the power-desperate Padres are reportedly inteterested in obtaining Bruce.
