by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(11/16/2017) Hosmer rejected the Royals' qualifying offer prior to Thursday's deadline, Bill Shaikin of The Los Angeles Times reports.

Hosmer will set his sights on a multi-year deal in the open market, as the 28-year-old has officially become a free agent by declining this offer. During the 2017 campaign, Hosmer slashed .318/.385/.498 with 25 home runs and 94 RBI and played in all 162 games.

Carlos Santana: Officially declines qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(11/16/2017) Santana has officially declined the Indians' qualifying offer prior to Thursday's deadline, Jordan Bastian of reports.

Santana will now head to free agency, with Cleveland receiving draft-pick compensation should he decide to sign elsewhere. The 31-year-old is coming off another steady year of production, hitting .259/.363/.455 with 23 homers, 79 RBI and 90 runs scored in 154 games for the Indians.

Mariners' Ryon Healy: Sent to Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(11/15/2017) Healy was traded to the Mariners in exchange for Emilio Pagan and Alexander Campos.

Healy is coming off a solid sophomore campaign during which he compiled a .271/.302/.451 line with 25 homers and 78 RBI in 149 games with the Athletics. He's proven a capable hitter major-league hitter over the past two years, hitting .282 with a .788 OPS in 221 games. Given the departure of Danny Valencia and Yonder Alonso -- and the struggles of Daniel Vogelbach last year -- Healy figures to have the inside track at winning the starting job at first base for Seattle next season. The 25-year-old also has the ability to play third base, though he likely won't see many starts there behind Kyle Seager.

Royals' Eric Hosmer: Gets qualifying offer from Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(11/7/2017) The Royals made a qualifying offer to Hosmer prior to Monday's deadline, the Kansas City Star reports.

He's expected to pass on the one-year, $17.4 million tender for 2018 and seek a multi-year deal in free agency. Hosmer had his best offensive season yet at the plate in 2017, hitting .318/.385/.498 with 25 homers, 94 RBI, and 98 runs scored.

Indians' Carlos Santana: Tendered qualifying offer by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(11/7/2017) The Indians gave Santana a qualifying offer prior to Monday's deadline, the Los Angeles Times reports.

This year's qualifying offer is worth $17.4 million, and it's not completely unreasonable to think that Santana may be tempted to sign it, as he may be unable to secure a higher average annual value from a multi-year deal via free agency if he turns it down. While he failed to reach his career-high 34 homers from 2016, Santana delivered another steady line at the plate, hitting .259/.363/.455 with 23 long balls, 79 RBI and 90 runs scored as an everyday contributor in a strong Cleveland lineup.

Mike Napoli: Team option officially declined Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(11/6/2017) Napoli's (ankle) team option was declined by the Rangers on Monday.

While this move had been expected, Napoli's team option was officially turned down Monday. Napoli offers plenty of power, as he slugged 29 home runs over 124 games in 2017. However, he also posted a dismal .193 batting average, the lowest mark of his career.

Tigers' Efren Navarro: Outrighted to Toledo
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(11/3/2017) Navarro was sent off the 40-man roster and outrighted to Triple-A Toledo on Friday.

Navarro played in 23 games for the Tigers once the rosters expanded in September, slashing .230/.319/.377 with two home runs and two RBI. The 31-year-old is unlikely to make any impact in most fantasy leagues for the upcoming season, but will continue to serve as organizational depth for Detroit.

Red Sox's Sam Travis: Dealing with minor hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(11/2/2017) Travis has returned from winter ball due to a minor hip injury, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

There doesn't appear to be any concern over Travis' hip, but the Red Sox are stressing precaution over their first baseman, and will let him rest up before spring training begins in a few months. During the course of the 2017 season, he played in 33 games for Boston, slashing .263/.325/.342 with one RBI and 13 runs scored.
