This comes as no surprise, as Solano has appeared in the majors in parts of the last four seasons. That being said, his hitting numbers have tapered off since his debut in the bigs, so he'll likely head back to the minors after spring training if he can't get his bat going against major league pitching.
A second-round pick by the Yankees in 2010, Gumbs hit the proverbial wall in his development, failing to move above High-A after his initial promotion to the level in 2013. He hit a low point in 2015, batting .176/.224/.213 in 202 plate appearances with High-A Tampa, but Gumbs is only 23 and the Reds want to see if there's something in his game that is correctable.
With plenty of offense in tow, the Jays can afford to take their time with the young second baseman. Upon having surgery on his left shoulder in November, the expectation was that Travis would need 16-20 weeks to recover. Ryan Goins remains the favorite to pick up the extra playing time at second base while Travis is on the shelf.
Izturis had his club option for 2016 declined, but the 35-year-old is back with Toronto anyway. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2014 due to injuries, where he batted .286 in 38 plate appearances. He'll likely serve as organizational depth with the infield pretty well solidified for the AL East champions.
Moncada, 20, is considered Boston's top prospect and should advance through at least two levels in 2016. He made adjustments during the second half of the season at Low-A Greenville and appears ready to tackle High-Salem and later Double-A Portland in 2016.
Worth spent the 2015 season in the Diamondbacks' organization, sporting an impressive .314/.394/.469 slash line in 106 games with the Triple-A club. The 30-year-old has some major league experience, but he figures to serve as organizational infield depth with Houston.
It doesn't sound like the Rangers have any immediate plans to move Profar to the outfield, but he could get some reps this spring in an effort to improve organizational depth. If the Texas infield remains healthy while the outfield suffers some injuries, Profar might then get a chance to try out a new position. He slashed .267/.352/.453 in the Arizona Fall League, but he was strictly used as a designated hitter, and the Rangers still have Elvis Andrus and Rougned Odor blocking him from playing time in the middle infield. The most recent report on Profar's shoulder said that he's been throwing from 135 feet.
Moncada, who struggled initially in his acclimation to baseball in the United States, finished the 2015 season with .817 OPS for Low-A Greenville and is considered Boston's top prospect. Depending on his development this year, Moncada could reach the majors by the end of the 2017 season.
The 22-year-old is reportedly responding well as he ramps up his throwing. While it's possible he may still face restrictions at the very start of camp, Profar said he expects to be a full-go in March. Profar returned to play 12 games between Low-A and Double-A last season, and followed that up with a strong offensive showing in the Arizona Fall League, but his arm strength remains a question mark as he played exclusively at DH.
The veteran utility infielder hit just .202 with a .637 OPS last season, but he'll return as a reliable, versatile defensive option. Flaherty made only $1.075 million last season, so the $1.5 million figure represents a small raise.
