Red Sox activated RHP Clay Buchholz from the 60-day disabled list.

He'll make his return to the rotation on Tuesday in Tampa. Buchholz has been limited to 12 starts this season due to shoulder issues but returns to a nifty 1.71 ERA and 1.02 WHIP. The Red Sox haven't announced who he'll replace in the rotation, but it will either be Ryan Dempster or Felix Doubront.

Major League Baseball has issued a permanent suspension of Jenrry Mejia after a third positive test for a performance-enhancing drug.

It's hard to comprehend how Mejia let this happen. The reliever previously served an 80-game suspension and was still serving a 162-game suspension for positive tests when he got caught again with Boldenone. He's the first player ever in the majors or minors to receive a lifetime ban for performance-enhancing drugs. It's quite a fall for a guy who not long ago was serving as the Mets' closer.

Marlins signed LHP Craig Breslow to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Rob Bradford of WEEI.com says Breslow will earn $1.5 million if he makes the Opening Day roster. The left-hander attempted to market himself as a starter this winter, but it's unclear whether the Marlins will give him a chance to earn a rotation spot. Either way, he's likely to crack the Opening Day roster. Breslow held a 4.15 ERA over 65 innings for the Red Sox in 2015.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles' "first choice" as they look to add a hitter is Dexter Fowler.

Baltimore's signing of Yovani Gallardo is expected to be made official soon, and since they've already forfeited a draft pick for that addition, it makes since to keep adding talent. Fowler would fit the Orioles' desire to fortify the lineup with another bat and also a leadoff hitter. If they're unable to lure Fowler, Rosenthal says the club's "backup plan" is a trade for Jay Bruce.

Joe Mauer has revealed that he's occasionally dealt with blurred vision since his concussion issues in 2013.

Mauer noted that bright sunshine has sometimes triggered the blurred vision, which he said, not surprisingly, has affected his pitch tracking. He'll experiment during spring training with sunglasses in hopes that it will help the issue. "I’ve always been kind of weird about my routine when it comes to stepping into the (batter’s) box, but it’s something I’ll give a shot this spring and see if it helps," Mauer said. Mauer's concussion issues forced him to move to first base and it seems obvious that it's also affected his production at the plate, as he's hit .270/.348/.376 the last two seasons after entering 2013 with a career .323/.405/.468 line.

Robert Murray of BaseballEssential.com reports that the Padres have tried to trade Matt Kemp this offseason.

There were reports back in early December about the Padres dangling Kemp as they looked to acquire a shortstop. They've since signed Alexei Ramirez, but dealing Kemp and the $86 million left on his contract surely still appeals to San Diego. Whether another club would be willing to take Kemp's big contract on is another question, as the Padres would surely have to pick up a large portion of the deal. Murray was told by one source that the Padres have talked to the A's about Kemp, but Oakland is "not yet willing to pull the trigger."

The agent for Cuban outfielder Lazaro Armenteros, Charles Hairston, said Friday that his client is not close to a decision.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported previously that a decision from "Lazarito" was expected Thursday or Friday of this week, but obviously that's not going to happen. Hairston noted that new teams are in the mix for Armenteros, which could be the reason for the delay. "For a 16 year-old, it’s easy to want to just play ball," Hairston said. "But he wants to do what’s best for his family. He’s being very mature." Hairston offered no hint at a potential timetable for his client's decision. The Padres, Braves, Cubs, Dodgers and Phillies are among the clubs known to have interest.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles are hoping to complete a deal for Yovani Gallardo on Friday.

Heyman indicates that the only hangup at this point is whether the contract will be for three years or three years plus an option. ESPN's Buster Olney reported previously that the deal is expected to be worth $40-45 million. The Orioles were resistant to give up their first-round pick to sign Gallardo, but ultimately they decided they needed a workhorse. Once the contract for Gallardo is completed, the O's are then expected to target a hitter.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman hears the Reds believe the Orioles have the prospects to swing a deal for Jay Bruce.

That bit of information is almost certainly a follow-up to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal's report Wednesday that the Orioles would have interest in a trade for Bruce but it was uncertain that the O's could pull off such a deal. The Orioles are looking at a number of different options for adding a bat, including signing a free agent like Dexter Fowler or Pedro Alvarez, and it's unlikely that they would look to acquire more than one. While the O's seem to have a lot of plates in the air, the market for Bruce has been quiet for much of the winter.

Royals and 3B Mike Moustakas avoided arbitration by agreeing to a two-year, $14.3 million contract.

The deal buys out the final two years of Moustakas' arbitration eligibility. The third baseman had requested $7 million when the two sides exchanged figures last month, with the Royals offering $4.2 million. It's a worthy raise for the 27-year-old after he batted .284/.348/.470 with 22 home runs and 82 RBI last season.

Pirates signed LHP Cory Luebke to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training.

Luebke worked his way back from his second Tommy John surgery to throw seven minor league innings this past season. The 30-year-old hasn't pitched in the majors since 2012. Before the injuries he was a very successful starter and reliever, and with a little Bucs magic, maybe we haven't seen the last of Luebke yet.

Pirates signed LHP Eric O'Flaherty to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training.

O'Flaherty wasn't right in 2015, posting a 8.10 ERA and 21/18 K/BB ratio over 30 innings while dealing with left shoulder issues, but he's been an effective lefty reliever in the past. The Pirates have a track record of getting pitchers straightened out, so it's a near-ideal landing spot for the 31-year-old.
