Dustin Ackley's hot hitting continued Friday against the Astros, as he finished 4-for-5 with four RBI.

Ackley had three singles and a triple. The four hits established a new career-high while the four RBI matched his career best. The 25-year-old is now hitting .411 this month and has pulled his batting average up from .215 to .261 in the process. With his multi-position eligibility, he could be a useful option down the stretch in deeper mixed leagues.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox are finalizing an agreement with free agent Hanley Ramirez.

An official announcement will likely come by Monday afternoon. Rosenthal says it'll be a five-year pact worth close to $90 million -- a decent-looking deal for Boston given Hanley's offensive upside. The Red Sox are still thought to be chasing free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval, so it's not clear yet what position Ramirez will play. If Hanley can stay healthy, he should have tremendous fantasy value in the power-friendly ballparks of the American League East.

Athletics acquired 1B Ike Davis from the Pirates for international slot money.

The 27-year-old slugger was designated for assignment by the Pirates earlier in the week. In 143 contests between the Mets and Pirates in 2014, Davis slashed .233/.344/.378 with 11 homers and 51 RBI in 360 at-bats. With his ability to draw a walk and hit for power from the left-hand side of the plate, he should be able to carve out a platoon role with the A's.

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal tweeted that the Rangers have been in contact with the Braves regarding OF Justin Upton.

We're guessing that a lot of teams have been in contact with the Braves, given that they just shipped Jayson Heyward to the Cardinals. Upton is in a similar situation to Heyward in that he is a year away from free agency. According to Rosenthal, the Rangers are open to trading prospects in lieu of paying in free agency. Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported that the Braves will be asking a higher price for Upton than they did for Heyward.

Giants assistant GM Bobby Evans told The Front Office on Sirius 209 XM 86 that the team has not made a "final offer" to free agent Pablo Sandoval.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported on Friday that the Padres had made the highest offer to Sandoval. Both Boston and San Diego have supposedly put out offers in the range of five years, $95 million. Sandoval is said to be leaning toward taking the Red Sox offer. Evans would not confirm that the Giants' current offer is in that same range, but according to Jim Bowden of ESPN, he "implied" that this was accurate.

Free agent OF Torii Hunter told the Pioneer Press that he and the Twins had a "common interest" in possible return.

"I came there as a young boy and came out a man. I always hold true to Minnesota Twins values I was taught," said Hunter. His other suitors include the Royals, Orioles, Giants and Blue Jays. Hunter isn't quite the defender he used to be, but he put up a .286/.319/.446 line in 2014, hitting 17 home runs and driving in 83 over 142 games at age 39. He indicated he would make a decision about his landing spot within the next few weeks.

Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports the Astros have contacted the agent for David Robertson to express their interest in the free agent closer.

MLB.com's Brian McTaggart previously reported the Astros were aggressively seeking a top closer, so it makes sense that they would be interested in Robertson. The 29-year-old is said to be looking for a contract along the lines of what Jonathan Papelbon got from the Phillies, so if the Astros are willing to pony up the two could be a match. A return to the Yankees is also a strong possibility, and as many as a half-dozen teams have reached out to express their interest in the right-hander.

The Giants are "expected to make a serious bid on Cuban slugger Yasmany Tomas" if Pablo Sandoval signs elsewhere, according to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle.

With the Padres reportedly having made the biggest offer to Sandoval and the Red Sox believed to be his preference at the moment, things don't look promising for a Sandoval return to San Francisco. In that event, Shea said the club will turn its focus to the 24-year-old Tomas. They wouldn't be the only team interested, either -- Tomas has suitors in the Padres, Braves and Phillies, among others.

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle hears the Padres' offer to Pablo Sandoval is the highest the free agent has received thus far.

The Padres were believed to have made the offer Friday. Shea also said he believes that despite the large offer, Sandoval is still leaning toward signing with the Red Sox. The Giants have been asked to make their best offer to the third baseman recently as well, suggesting things may be moving toward a conclusion. Multiple sources say a decision is expected within the next week.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Twins have won the bidding on Korean southpaw Hyeon-jong Yang.

No word yet on what the winning bid amount was, but it's believed to be far less than the Kia Tigers were hoping for when posting Yang. The Twins now have an exclusive 30-day window to negotiate a contract with Yang, and Berardino reports that the two sides are already closing in on a deal.
Nov 22 - 11:20 AM

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the White Sox and Adam LaRoche have agreed to a two-year, $25 million contract.

With Jose Abreu entrenched as the team's first baseman, it's likely that LaRoche will see most of his time in the DH role in the White Sox lineup. The 35-year-old slugger slashed .259/.362/.455 with 26 homers and 92 RBI in 140 games with the Nationals in 2014 and should see increased power numbers with the move to the hitter-friendly confines of U.S. Cellular Field.

The Rays have narrowed down their managerial search to three finalists: Kevin Cash, Raul Ibanez and Don Wakamatsu.

Wakamatsu is the only one of the trio who has previous experience as a major league manager. The surprise in this announcement, is that bench coach Dave Martinez, who was widely considered to be the favorite for the gig, wasn't even among the finalists.
