Yankees brass praises rookie second basemen
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:43 am ET) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has indicated that rookies Robert Refsnyder and Jose Pirela might have the inside track on the starting second base job in 2015.

Free agents such as Stephen Drew and Asdrubal Cabrera could be more palatable options in teaming up with inexperienced shortstop Didi Gregorius as a double play combination. But Cashman is certainly open to starting the year with Refsnyder or Pirela.

Cashman is high on Refsnyder, who hit .318 with 14 home runs at the Double-A and Triple-A levels last season, though he admits he hasn't seen much of him. "I know that in half a year he had nine errors in Double-A and in the seocnd half, in Triple-A, he had only three," Cashman told NJ.com. "So there's obviously a lot of improvement there. ... Very excited about his bat and his ability to get on base and do some things."

Meanwhile, Joe Girardi has spoken highly of Pirela, who batted .333 in 24 at-bats for the Yankees after his September promotion.

"He made every type of play: a slow roller, a ball to hisright, a ball to his left, a turn-and-throw play and a tag play at second," Girardi said.

Yankees have inquired about Rockies SS Tulowitzki
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:20 am ET) The Yankees have thrown their hat in the ring in the pursuit of Rockies star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman has reported.

Tulowitzki is open to a trade to a contender and the Yankees have a significant need at shortstop. But it remains to be seen how committed Colorado is to dealing him.

Phil Hughes agrees to three-year, $42 million extension with Twins
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:11 am ET) Phil Hughes has agreed to a three-year, $42 million extension with the Twins on Monday, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirms.

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News first reported the extension.

The extension supersedes the final two years of his contract, essentially giving the right-handed hurler a new five-year extension. He is slated to earn $9.2 million in each of the next two seasons, then make $13.2 million in each of the following three seasons between 2017-19.

Hughes made 32 starts last season and went 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and 186:16 K:BB ratio over 209 2/3 innings.

Report: Padres have discussed Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) The Padres have discussed a trade for Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels, according to the Daily News

Newly-acquired outfielder Wil Myers would be used as the centerpiece in the deal. By bringing in Myers, Matt Kemp and Justin Upton, San Diego has a glut of talent in the outfield. While it seems strange that the team would turn around and deal Myers, he would be the type of talent the Phillies are said to be seeking for Hamels. Philadelphia reportedly wants two or three "premium" prospects for Hamels. 

The 30-year-old Hamels posted a 2.46 ERA over 204 2/3 innings last season. He's owed $90 million over the next four seasons. 


Scott Boras: Matt Wieters will be ready by opening day
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Orioles catcher Matt Wieters will be ready by opening day, according to his agent, Scott Boras. 

Wieters underwent Tommy John surgery is June, and is working his way back from the injury. It's unclear if Wieters will be able to catch full-time at the beginning of the year, or if he'll have to be worked in slowly. Manager Buck Showalter recently told reporters he wasn't sure Wieters would be ready by opening day, but he expected him to good shortly after. Wieters hit .308/.339/.500 over 104 at-bats before having surgery. 


Report: James Shields seeking $110 million
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Free-agent pitcher James Shields is reportedly seeking a contract worth about $110 million, according to the Boston Globe

That type of deal would be similar to the one signed by Cole Hamels back in 2012. It's believed the 33-year-old Shields could receive a five-year deal. Both the Giants and Red Sox are involved with Shields, and the Yankees have been mentioned as another suitor. Shields posted a 3.21 ERA over 227 innings last season. He's exceeded 200 innings pitched in each of the last eight years.


Chase Utley staying put in Philly
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) The Phillies will enter the season with Chase Utley, according to the Daily News. 

With Jimmy Rollins gone, some have expected the team to entertain dealing Utley. As of right now, that's not going to happen. "I've had some dialogue with Wolfie [agent Joel Wolfe] but frankly, he doesn't want to go anywhere," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "He wants to honor his contract and that's how we have to perceive it." 

Amaro admitted that the team needs to listen to any offer for the 36-year-old Utley, but doesn't perceive Utley changing his mind at this time. Utley hit .270/.339/.407 in 589 at-bats last season.


Giants' Sabean: No plans to talk to Max Scherzer
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Giants general manager Brian Sabean said that the Giants have not talked to free-agent pitcher Max Scherzer and have no plans to do so, the Mercury News reports.

Scherzer is the biggest name on the pitching market and could be seeking a deal north of the $155-million pact signed by Cubs pitcher Jon Lester. His price tag may not be feasible for the Giants' budget. The 2013 AL Cy Young winner went 18-5 with a 3.15 ERA and 252:63 K:BB ratio in 220 1/3 innings with the Tigers in 2014.

The Orioles declined a $5-million option on Hundley for the 2015 season but had interest in bringing him back into the fold at a lesser salary. He hit .243/.273/.358 with six home runs and 22 RBI in 218 at-bats between Baltimore and San Diego in 2014.


Report: Phillies could join Asdrubal Cabrera market
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) The Phillies could become involved in the market for free-agent infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, ESPN.com reports.

The Phillies traded their longtime starter at shortstop to the Dodgers this offseason and will be looking to fill that hole in the infield. However, the team will have to shed some additional payroll in order to make a run at the infielder, according to the report. Cabrera hit .241/.307/.387 with 14 home runs, 61 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 553 at-bats between Cleveland and Washington in 2014.
