Cubs' Brett Anderson: Signs with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/23/2017) Anderson agreed to a deal with the Cubs on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

The deal is still pending a physical, which is an important note because Anderson has dealt with a myriad of injuries during his career. In his last healthy season with the Dodgers (2015), the lefty posted a respectable 3.69 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over 180.1 innings. He will likely supply starting pitching depth for the Cubs in 2017.


Clinton Hollon: Released by Blue Jays

(1/23/2017) Hollon was released by the Blue Jays on Monday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

Hollon wasn't able to find his footing with the Blue Jays, as the former second round pick was twice suspended 50 games for testing positive for a drug of abuse. At just 22 years old, the young righty may find his way to another club, but his former disciplinary issues make him a risky asset.


White Sox's Anthony Swarzak: Agrees to minor league deal with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/23/2017) Swarzak agreed to a minor league deal with the White Sox on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Swarzak appeared in 26 games for the Yankees in 2016, but posted a 5.52 ERA over his 31 innings pitched. He'll have the opportunity to make the club's big league roster, but isn't likely to make much of an impact in 2017.


Blue Jays' Gregorio Petit: Signs minor league deal with Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/23/2017) Petit signed a minor league contract with the Blue Jays on Tuesday that includes an invitation to spring training, Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports.

Petit was designated for assignment by the Angels this offseason after a rough 2016 campaign in which the utility infielder posted a wRC+ of 78 over 89 games played. He'll likely serve as organizational infield depth for the Blue Jays in 2017.


Dae-Ho Lee: Returns to Korean baseball
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/23/2017) Lee agreed to a deal with the Lotte Giants of the Korean Baseball Organization, Jeeho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports.

Lee's major league career was very short-lived. In one season with the Mariners, the first baseman hit .253 with 14 home runs and 49 RBI over 104 games played. At 34 years old, a future return to the MLB seems unlikely.


Blue Jays' Juan Graterol: Claimed by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/23/2017) Graterol was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Monday, Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports.

Graterol has now bounced to his fourth different team this offseason. The 27-year-old spent most of the 2016 season with the Angels' Triple-A affiliate, slashing .300/.340/.370 over 246 plate appearances.


Rays' Jose De Leon: Traded to Rays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/23/2017) De Leon was traded to the Rays on Monday in exchange for second baseman Logan Forsythe.

This is a nice get for the Rays, as De Leon has been regarded as one of the top pitching prospects in baseball. The young righty did struggle in his four starts with the Dodgers in 2016, posting a 6.35 ERA and 15:7 K:BB over 17 innings. He may begin the season in the minor leagues, but is likely to make his way to the big league club sometime during 2017.


Dodgers' Logan Forsythe: Traded to Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/23/2017) Forsythe was traded to the Dodgers on Monday in exchange for pitcher Jose De Leon.

After months of trade rumors, the Dodgers have found their starting second baseman. Forsythe is a versatile infielder coming off of an injury-riddled, yet productive 2016 season in which he slashed .264/.333/.444 and belted 20 home runs over 127 games. He'll likely see a nice increase in his offensive production in the potent Dodgers lineup.


Diamondbacks' Josh Thole: Inks minor league deal with Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/23/2017) Thole agreed to a minor league deal with the Diamondbacks on Monday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Thole was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays in 2016 after struggling at the plate to the tune of a .169 batting average over 50 games played. He has never been much of an offensive threat and will likely provide organization catching depth for the Diamondbacks in 2017.


Rays' Shawn Tolleson: Agrees to deal with Rays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/23/2017) Tolleson (back) signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Rays on Monday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Tolleson spent the past three seasons pitching out of the Rangers' bullpen. In an injury-shortened 2016 season, the veteran reliever posted a career-worst 7.68 ERA and 17.3 percent strikeout rate over 36.1 innings. He'll likely pitch in a low-leverage role for the Rays in 2017.
