Mariners' Steve Clevenger: Headed to Seattle in trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steve Clevenger was traded to the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday in exchange for Mark Trumbo, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

A week after signing Chris Iannetta to a one-year deal, the M's have acquired Clevenger to further bolster their depth behind the plate, in the process avoiding an arb case with Trumbo. Clevenger hit .287 with just a 12.4 percent strikeout rate in 30 games last season, but he figures to play behind Iannetta and won't even be much of a daily option when given an opportunity considering his lack of pop.

Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Traded to Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mark Trumbo was traded to the Baltimore Orioles from the Mariners on Tuesday in exchange for Steve Clevenger, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

A lot can happen before Opening Day, but right now Trumbo's fantasy stock appears to be trending way up. He goes from a terrible hitting environment to a hitter's paradise in Baltimore, and his playing time now looks a lot more stable. Trumbo hit 22 home runs with a .262/.310/.449 slash line in 545 plate appearances with the Diamondbacks and Mariners last season. Assuming the Orioles don't bring back Chris Davis, Trumbo should hit in the middle of the lineup, playing almost every day at either first base or designated hitter, making 30 home runs a legitimate possibility.

Angels' Rafael Ortega: One-year deal with Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rafael Ortega signed a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday.

It's a little surprising to see Ortega, who has played in just two games in the big leagues (both in 2012), receive a major-league deal. However, he is a lefty who has good contact skills and some speed, plus he will cost the major-league minimum. Ortega figures to serve as the top backup in the corners, and can also help in center field in a pinch.

Reds' Brandon Allen: Minor league deal with Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brandon Allen signed a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday that includes an invite to spring training.

While Allen has done some damage in parts of seven seasons at Triple-A, posting an .874 OPS and 109 homers, he's never played more than 52 games in any of his four major-league seasons. His last major-league appearance came in 2012, and he will likely serve merely as an organizational depth piece for the Reds if he sticks around beyond spring training.

Reds' Tim Melville: Inks minors deal with Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tim Melville signed a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday that includes an invite to spring training.

His lone season in the Tigers' organization was largely forgettable, as Melville went 7-10 with a 4.63 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 27 starts for Triple-A Toledo, though those numbers were a significant improvement on his from Double-A the year before. Still just 26, Melville may have an outside shot at a rotation spot on a young Reds staff, but his signing seems to be primarily for depth.

Reds' Dayan Diaz: Signs minors deal with Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz signed a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday that includes an invite to spring training.

A nine-year minor league veteran, Diaz will look to break into the majors for the first time in 2016 after posting a 1.73 ERA and 1.16 WHIP between Double-A and Triple-A last season. He's picked the right organization to have a chance, as the Reds' bullpen outside of Aroldis Chapman was terrible in 2015, but Diaz is not a likely candidate to take over for Chapman (assuming he is indeed traded) given the lack of swing-and-miss stuff.

Dodgers' Matt West: Signs minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matt West signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers , Eric Stephen of True Blue Los Angeles reports.

West recorded two appearances with the Dodgers during the summer, but the 27-year-old has mainly pitched in the minors throughout his seven-year career. He'll likely provide some organizational depth for the Dodgers next season.

David Price agrees to seven-year deal with Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

David Price agreed to a seven-year, $217 million contract with the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday, The Boston Globe reports.

The Red Sox struggled to find an ace last season, so they went out and paid for one this offseason, inking one of the top two starting pitchers on the market to a hefty contract. Price, who went 18-5 with a 2.45 ERA and 225 strikeouts with the Tigers and Blue Jays last season, will remain in the AL East and is on track to start Opening Day.

Twins' Byung-ho Park: Agrees to four year contract
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Park agreed to a deal with the Twins on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. Park will receive a four-year, $12 million contract, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

The 29-year-old smashed 50-plus home runs in back-to-back seasons for Nexen of the Korean Baseball Organization and he'll likely get a every chance to win the starting DH role. Trevor Plouffe's time in Minnesota may now be nearing an end, as the club might opt to shop their third baseman to make room for Park and Miguel Sano, who is expected to take over the job at third base this season.

Wilin Rosario: Elects to become free agent
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Rosario will become a free agent after declining his outright assignment to Triple-A, Thomas Harding of reports.

Due to poor defensive abilities as a catcher, Rosario was forced to play a platoon role at first base in 2015. However, after playing arguably worse defense at first base, the Rockies opted to end the experiment and designate the 26-year-old for assignment. Rosario will likely sign with another team interested in his offensive prowess, but it remains to be seen if he will earn enough plate appearances to become fantasy relevant once more.
