Padres recalled RHP Tyson Ross from Triple-A Tucson.

Ross was sent down just prior to the All-Star break, but he'll return to start Tuesday night against the Brewers. The 26-year-old has a 3.60 ERA and 34/21 K/BB ratio over 45 innings in three starts and 19 relief appearances with the Padres this season. He's not a fantasy option outside of NL-only leagues.

T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers will not sign Seung Hwan Oh.

There had been a report by Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic earlier this month that the two sides had reached an agreement, but in recent days there had been rumblings that maybe something went awry with his physical. The 35-year-old right-hander will continue to look for work elsewhere.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Twins have agreed to terms with Anibal Sanchez on a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

The veteran right-hander has the opportunity to earn an additional $2.5 million in incentives. Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN was first to report that the two sides were talking. It's a bit surprising given how this market has gone that Sanchez got a major league contract, but MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger hears that the deal isn't fully guaranteed. Sanchez had a rough go of it the last three years in Detroit, posting a 5.67 ERA. That includes a 6.41 ERA last season. Given the state of the Twins' rotation, the soon-to-be 34-year-old should have a good shot to break camp as one of the starting five.

Rangers signed RHP Edinson Volquez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

It's a two-year deal, as Volquez is expected to miss the entire 2017 season after having Tommy John surgery last August. SB Nation's Chris Cotillo says Volquez will earn at least $2 million if in the majors in 2019 and the contract can max out at $6.5 million. The Marlins remain on the hook for the $13 million he's owed in 2018. Volquez, who turns 35 in July, posted a 4.19 ERA over 17 starts for the Marlins last season before going under the knife. His highlight in 2017 was throwing the only no-hitter in baseball.

Dodgers re-signed INF Chase Utley to a two-year, $2 million contract.

The deal was announced earlier this week and is now official. Utley will receive $1 million each season. It's a small price to pay for the veteran infielder who is lauded for his clubhouse presence and professionalism, although we must point out that the 39-year-old has batted just .235/.310/.382 over the last three seasons. Utley will back up at second, third and first base.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Mets and Jason Vargas have agreed to terms on a contract.

The deal, which is pending a physical, is for two years and $16 million and contains a club option for 2020, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. Vargas, 35, made his first All-Star team last season after posting a 2.62 ERA over 17 first-half starts, but he faded badly in the second half with a 6.38 ERA over his final 15 outings. Still, the depth is useful given all of the health questions in the Mets' rotation. He'll presumably serve as the team's fifth starter this season.

Gerardo Parra underwent surgery on February 9 to remove the hamate bone from his right hand.

Parra said he expects to return around March 8-10, which would be a fairly aggressive timetable. If he is able to make it back by that time, he'll have no problem getting ready in time for Opening Day. Parra currently looks pegged to be the Rockies' right fielder after batting .309/.341/.452 with 10 home runs for them last season. If the veteran outfielder's rehab progresses slower than expected and he needs a disabled list stint, it could potentially open up a job for Raimel Tapia or David Dahl.

Orioles signed RHP Andrew Cashner to a two-year, $16 million contract.

He can earn up to $5 million more each season in incentives and the deal also includes a $10 million vesting option for 2020. Cashner put up a 3.40 ERA over 166 2/3 innings for the Rangers last season, although that came along with an ugly 86/64 K/BB ratio. It would be a surprise if he has much mixed league value in 2018 while he calls Camden Yards home.

According to FanRag's Robert Murray, the Red Sox and Eduardo Nunez have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with an option for 2019.

A three-year deal for Nunez seemed likely at the end of the regular season last year, but then he hurt his knee in the postseason and the free agent market collapsed. It benefits the Red Sox, who get a versatile player on a short-term deal. Nunez can start at second base on Opening Day and move into a utility role after Dustin Pedroia returns.
Feb 15 - 6:34 PM

Blue Jays agreed to terms with LHP Jaime Garcia on a one-year, $8 million contract with a $10 million club option for 2019.

The buyout for the option is $2 million, so Garcia is guaranteed at least $10 million in the deal. Garcia has struggled to put together seasons in which he both remains healthy and performs at his best, but he still has the strong groundball rate and decent strikeout rate to go along with it. Unfortunately, this most likely means that Joe Biagini will be back in Toronto's pen, barring an injury to another starter this spring.

Danny Salazar "experienced an onset of right shoulder rotator cuff inflammation in mid-January," per a press release from the Indians.

Salazar has resumed throwing and is "progressing well," according to the same media update, but the 28-year-old right-hander is also "a couple weeks behind" the other pitchers in Indians camp this spring. It's possible this could affect his readiness for the beginning of the 2018 regular season. Salazar battled elbow and shoulder problems in 2017 and finished with a disappointing 4.28 ERA and 1.34 WHIP, though he did strike out 145 batters in 103 innings.

Rangers GM Jon Daniels said Thursday that there is "nothing imminent" to announce on Seung Hwan Oh.

Oh and the Rangers reportedly agreed last week to a one-year, $2.75 million contract with a $4.5 million club option for 2019, but perhaps something came up during 35-year-old right-hander's pre-signing physical. He struggled to a 4.10 ERA in 59 1/3 innings with the Cardinals in 2017 after posting a 1.92 ERA and 103 strikeouts over his first 79 2/3 major league innings in 2016.
