Diamondbacks clear their 60-day disabled list
Diamondbacks bring back Daniel Hudson, Matt Reynolds
Hudson returned to the majors after undergoing two Tommy John surgery. He tossed just 2 2/3 innings, posting a 13.50 ERA. Reynolds spent all of 2014 recovering from Tommy John surgery.
Padres decline option on Josh Johnson, but could bring him back
Johnson missed most of the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He was owed $4 million next season, but the Padres opted to buy out the final year on his contract. Despite the move, Johnson could return to San Diego at a lesser price. The 30-year-old pitcher reportedly has interest in staying with the club.
Orioles decline to bring back Nick Hundley
Hundley hit .243/.273/.358 over 218 at-bats last season between San Diego and Baltimore. He was set to earn $5 million in 2015, but the Orioles didn't want him at that price. He'll look to hook on with another club this winter.
Orioles decline option on Nick Markakis
Markakis was owed $17.5 million next season, but the team opted to buy out his contract for $2 million. The 30-year-old Markakis will head into the offseason a free-agent. He hit .276/.342/.386 over 642 at-bats last year.
Orioles bring back Wei-Yin Chen, Darren O'Day
The club had options on both players and decided to pick them up. Chen posted a 3.54 ERA over 185 2/3 innings last year. O'Day posted a 1.70 ERA over 68 2/3 innings.
Dan Haren decides to return to Los Angeles
Haren opted to exercise a $10 million option to stay with the team. In his first season with Los Angeles, Haren posted a 4.02 ERA 186 innings.
Royals expected to decline option on Billy Butler
Butler slumped last season, hitting .271/.323/.379 over 549 at-bats. He hit just nine home runs. Butler is owed $12 million next season, and the team is expected to go a different direction.
Royals pitcher Danny Duffy limited by rib issue
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.
Marlins expected to bring back Jeff Mathis
Mathis is owed $1.5 million next season, and the club will likely pick that up. Mathis isn't much of a threat at the plate, but receives high marks for his defense and ability to work with a pitching staff.
Postseason performances don't usually indicate a sea change in a player's Fantasy value, but the World Series MVP has been a different -- and better -- pitcher for awhile now.
