by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:04 pm ET) Injury-plagued right-hander Josh Johnson will test out free agency rather than attempt to secure a contract with the Padres, according to MLBDailyDish.com.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy limited by rib issue


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) Royals pitcher Danny Duffy was limited by a rib injury throughout the playoffs, according to the Kansas City Star.

Duffy suffered a stress fractuce in his ribcage late in the year, which prevented him from throwing more than two or three innings at a time. Duffy was a candidate to start the first game of the ALDS until the injury cropped up. Duffy was excellent down the stretch for Kansas City. He posted a 2.53 ERA over 149 1/3 innings. 


Cardinals retain John Lackey for 2015


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) The Cardinals have picked up an option on pitcher John Lackey for 2015.

Lackey's contract situation was somewhat unique. Since he missed time a couple years ago due to elbow surgery, Lackey's 2015 option dropped to just $500,000. The move was a no-brainer for St. Louis. Last season, Lackey posted a 3.82 ERA over 198 innings.


Mariners pick up option on Hisashi Iwakuma


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) The Mariners have picked up an option on pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma, according to 710 ESPN.

It's actually unclear if the club picked up the option or if Iwakuma reached enough benchmarks during the year for the option to automatically vest. Either way, he'll return to Seattle for $7 million next season. Iwakuma was fantastic in 2014, posting a 3.52 ERA over 179 innings.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) The White Sox have declined a club option on pitcher Felipe Paulino, according to MLBTradeRumors.com.

Paulino had a rough season on the South Side. He posted an 11.29 ERA over 18 1/3 innings before missing time with a rotator cuff injury. Paulino could have been brought back for $4 million, but the team opted to buy him out for $250,000. He'll look to catch on with another club this winter.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) The Royals have traded right-hander Liam Hendriks to the Blue Jays, per Fox Sports, which is further reporting that they are expected to receive a catcher in return.

Royals Jeremy Guthrie gets the loss in Game 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie picked up the loss Wednesday in Game 7 against the Giants.

Guthrie allowed three runs on four hits over 3 1/3 innings. He struck out three and did not issue any walks during the performance. Manager Ned Yost had a quick hook with the season on the line, leading to Guthrie getting pulled despite a low pitch count. After putting two men on base to start the fourth, Guthrie was replaced by Kelvin Herrera. Herrera would allow a run-scoring single to Michael Morse. That run would be charged to Guthrie, ultimately sticking him with the loss. 


Giants' Tim Hudson gets the quick hook in Game 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Giants pitcher Tim Hudson got the quick hook Wednesday in Game 7 against the Royals.

Hudson lasted just 1 2/3 innings, giving up two runs on three hits. He struck out one and walked one during the outing. Manager Bruce Bochy had a quick hook with the season on line, and pulled Hudson at the first sign of trouble. With the game tied 2-2, Hudson was pulled after giving up a single to Alcides Escobar. He threw 28 pitches during the outing. 


Giants' Madison Bumgarner caps World Series with save


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner capped off his dominant postseason run with a five inning save in Game 7 of the World Series.

Bumgarner came on in relief and was masterful. Pitching on just two days rest, Bumgarner was able to go five innings, giving up just two hits. He struck out four while throwing 68 pitches. Though Bumgarner wasn't technically the pitcher of record, the official scorer decided to give him the win. The ruling was later changed to give Bumgarner the save and Jeremy Affeldt the win. Bumgarner was named World Series MVP for his performance. 


Reds pick up option on Johnny Cueto


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) The Reds have picked up an option on pitcher Johnny Cueto, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer

Cueto's option was for just $10 million, leading many to believe the Reds would extend the offer. Cueto was excellent last season, posting a 2.25 ERA over 243 2/3 innings. Cueto is entering the final year of his deal, but has expressed an interest to remain with the Reds. 


Cubs' James McDonald elects free agency


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Cubs pitcher James McDonald has elected free agency, according to the Chicago Tribune

McDonald dealt with shoulder issues all season, and did not appear in the majors. The team attempted to outright him to the minors, but McDonald declined the assignment. He'll look to catch on with another club during the offseason. 


Braves expected to hand out qualifying offer to Ervin Santana


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) The Braves are expected to give pitcher Ervin Santana a qualifying offer, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The team has until Monday to extend the offer. If they do, Santana can either accept a one-year, $15.3 million deal with Atlanta, or turn it down hoping for more on the market. By giving Santana a qualifying offer, the Braves will receive a draft pick if he signs elsewhere. Santana posted a 3.95 ERA over 196 innings last season.
