Report: Athletics sending Derek Norris to Padres


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) The Athletics have agreed to trade catcher Derek Norris to the Padres, according to the New York Daily News.

After dealing Yasmani Grandal to Los Angeles in the Matt Kemp deal, the Padres were in need of a new backstop. It didn't take long for them to replace Grandal, as the team acquired Norris shortly after the Kemp deal went through.

Pitcher Seth Streich will also head to the Padres in the deal, according to FoxSports.com The 23-year-old posted a 3.16 ERA over 114 innings in High A last season.

The 25-year-old Norris is coming off a season in which he hit .270/.361/.403 over 385 at-bats. Norris is under team control through the 2018 season.

The Athletics are expected to receive pitchers Jesse Hahn and R.J. Alvarez in the deal, according to Yahoo! The 24-year-old Alvarez posted a 1.25 ERA over 43 1/3 innings at Double-A last year.

Padres, Rays and Nationals complete Wil Myers trade


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) The Padres, Rays and Nationals have completed a trade that will send Wil Myers to San Diego, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The deal had been in the works for a few days, but was finally agreed to late Thursday night. Myers, 24, will head to the Padres in the deal. He hit .222/.294/.320 over 325 at-bats with the Rays last season. Myers also missed time due to a wrist injury. 

The Padres will also receive catcher Ryan Hanigan and pitchers Gerardo Reyes and Jose Castillo in the deal. 

Tampa Bay will receive outfielder Steven Souza and pitcher Travis Ott from the Nationals. Souza, 25, hit .345/.427/.577 in 357 at-bats spread over three levels last year.

Washington is set to acquire pitcher Joe Ross from San Diego. The team will also receive infielder Trea Turner in the deal. Turner was a 2014 draft pick, and cannot be traded until midseason, so he's currently considered a player to be named later.


Royals not counting on Kris Medlen until the second half


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) The Royals do not expect pitcher Kris Medlen to return until the second half of the season.

General manager Dayton Moore told reporters he expects Medlen to be a factor down the stretch. Medlen is coming off Tommy John surgery, and the team will give him time to recover. Medlen had the surgery last March. Typically, it takes about a year for pitchers to recover, but the Royals aren't banking on Medlen being healthy right away.

Prior to having the surgery, Medlen posted a 3.11 ERA over 197 innings in 2013.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) The Royals announced Thursday they signed pitcher Kris Medlen to a two-year contract, which includes a mutual option for 2017.

Medlen missed all of the 2014 season with the Braves due to Tommy John surgery. He became a free agent after he was non-tendered in early December. 

Medlen is 30-13 with a 2.96 ERA in 61 career starts and 4-7 with a 2.92 ERA in 91 relief appearances. Since the start of 2010, Medlen's .674 winning percentage (31-15) ranks third in MLB among pitchers with 40-plus decisions.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) The Nationals, Padres and Rays are on the verge of a three-team deal, which would send outfielder Wil Myers to San Diego, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

Heyman has confirmed the multiple media reports outlining the full details of the trade. The Padres are set to receive Myers, catcher Ryan Hanigan, pitcher Gerardo Reyes and pitcher Jose Castillo from the Rays.

The Rays are getting two players from the Nationals -- outfielder Steven Souza and pitcher Travis Ott -- and three players from the Padres -- catcher Rene Rivera, first baseman Jake Bauers and pitcher Burch Smith.

The Nationals are getting pitcher Joe Ross from the Padres, as well as a player to be named later, which will be shortstop prospect Trea Turner. Because Turner was a 2014 draft pick, he can't be traded until June.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said Tuesday that Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer and Gavin Floyd have secured spots in the rotation for 2015.

He added Zach McAllister, Josh Tomlin, Danny Salazar and T.J. House will be competing for the final spot in the rotation this spring.


Gavin Floyd signs one-year, $4M deal with Indians, will be in rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) The Indians announced Tuesday they signed pitcher Gavin Floyd to a one-year contract. Floyd will earn $4 million in base salary and could earn $6 million in performance bonuses, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

General manager Chris Antonetti said Floyd will be part of the starting rotation. Floyd's 2014 season with the Braves ended in late June when he underwent surgery for a fractured elbow. Antonetti said Tuesday the fracture in Floyd's elbow has healed and the team expects him to be ready for full activity in spring training.

Floyd was limited to nine starts in 2014 after missing most of the season in 2013 due to Tommy John surgery. He went 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA last season. He is 72-72 with a 4.40 ERA in 11 MLB seasons.


Rangers' Matt Harrison could return to throwing in January


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison's back came back as clean after an X-ray was performed Monday. Harrison, who displaced a vertebra in his back in May, has a CT scan scheduled for Wednesday, which he hopes will allow him to start throwing in January. 

Harrison only made four appearances in 2014, throwing 17.1 innings with 4.15 ERA. 


White Sox will attempt to extend Jeff Samardzija


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) The White Sox are expected to try and extend pitcher Jeff Samardzija before he reaches free agency, according to CSNChicago.

The news shouldn't come as a surprise. Samardzija is under control for just one season, but has been adamant about reaching free agency. General manager Rick Hahn said the club will attempt to get Samardzija to sign a long-term deal, but understands these things take time. "I look forward to Jeff getting to know us and know what we are about and understanding how he fits and how he can fit for the foreseeable future," Hahn said.

Samardzija has been quiet about signing a long-term deal, saying he needs to get used to his new organization first. "Long-term deals are all about relationships and the future," Samardzija said. "For me, to be able to be on this team all year and really get to know all the players and what the future holds is exciting."

Samardzija posted a 2.99 ERA over 219 2/3 innings last season.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

There is also a $14 million vesting option for 2020. It vests if Santana throws 400 innings in 2017 and 2018, and throws at least 200 innings in '18. He also has to pass a physical.


Yankees hope CC Sabathia can be asset for middle of the rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) While the Yankees are optimistic about starting pitcher CC Sabathia bouncing back from knee surgery, general manager Brian Cashman is also realistic about the expectations moving forward for the 34-year-old hurler.

"We look forward to him in spring training," Cashman told NBC New York, per NJ.com. "He's rehabbing right now. He had the knee surgery. I don't think the velocity is ever going to return, but I do think that you're going to see a guy that can pitch in the middle of our rotation and give us the innings that we obviously desperately need. So he'll be an asset, we hope, for us as we move forward. But until he's back there every five days, doing what we're used to seeing him do, there's a little bit of a question mark there."


Twins sign Ervin Santana to four-year deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) The Twins have signed pitcher Ervin Santana to a four-year contract, the team announced Friday.

The two sides agreed to a four-year, $54-million deal, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reported Thursday. The deal includes a team option for a fifth year.

Santana declined a qualifying offer for the second straight offseason in November but was able to land a multyear contract the second time around after going 14-10 with a 3.95 ERA and 179:63 K:BB ratio in 196 innings with the Braves in 2014. His 8.2 K/9 rate marked his best strikeout rate since his only All-Star campaign in 2008. He's made at least 30 starts in each of the last five seasons.

Santana turned 32 years old Friday.

Webster went 5-3 with a 5.03 ERA and 36:28 K:BB ratio in 59 innings over 11 starts with the Red Sox in 2014 while delivering a 3.10 ERA and 100:44 K:BB ratio in 122 innings with Triple-A Pawtucket.

De La Rosa made 18 starts and one relief appearance with the Red Sox in 2014, going 4-8 with a 4.43 ERA and 74:35 K:BB ratio in 101 2/3 innings. He also made 12 starts in Triple-A last season, posting a 3.45 ERA and 57:25 K:BB ratio in 60 innings.

Deal set - Ross Detwiler goes from Nationals to Rangers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) It's official - the Rangers have confirmed that they have acquired pitcher Ross Detwiler from the Nationals for second baseman Chris Bostick and right-hander Abel De Los Santos.

Texas plans on using Detwiler in the starting rotation, where he's had some success. The right-hander was used exclusively out of the bullpen for pitching-rich Washington last season and struggled as a starter in 2013, but enjoyed a 10-8 season with a strong 3.40 ERA in 2012, mostly in that role.

Neither Bostick nor De Los Santos have reached the major league level, but the latter has been particularly impressive in the minors.
