Ryan Zimmerman went 3-for-7 and hit the game-winning two-run home run in the 16th inning as the Nationals outlasted the Brewers 4-2 on Tuesday.

Zimmerman had a pair of hits in six at-bats prior to the two-run shot in the 16th. It was a much-needed confidence boost for the 29-year-old, who was batting just .184/.250/.263 since returning from the disabled list on June 3. It's been a struggle, but Zimmerman should get it going any day now. Maybe Tuesday was that day.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Blue Jays will acquire Josh Donaldson from the Athletics for Brett Lawrie, Sean Nolin, Kendall Graveman and Franklin Barreto.

It's unclear at the moment if there are any other players involved or money changing hands in the deal. The 28-year-old Donaldson was the core of the Athletics offense and was under team control through the 2018 season, coming off of a .255/.342/.456 slash line with 29 homers and 98 RBI in 2014.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the potential trade that the Athletics are working on does not include right-hander Jeff Samardzija.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reported that the A's are close to what was called a "very significant deal" and that Jeff Samardzija was likely to be included. They do appear to be on the verge of something significant though and are expected to receive multiple players back in return. Stay tuned as this story continue to evolve.

Marlins acquired RHP Aaron Crow from the Royals in exchange for LHP Brian Flynn and RHP Reid Redman.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal first reported the deal, and it's now been made official. Crow was an All-Star in his rookie season back in 2011, but his stuff and results have declined steadily since then. He held a 4.12 ERA with just 34 strikeouts over 59 innings in 2014 and could have been facing a non-tender this winter with another raise via arbitration coming. The Marlins will hope the 28-year-old can rediscover his stuff in the National League.

Royals re-signed RHP Jason Frasor to a one-year, $1.25 million contract with a $2 million mutual option for 2016.

There's a $550,000 buyout attached to the option, so the deal will net Frasor at least $1.8 million. He can also earn an additional $500,000 in incentives in both 2015 and 2016. The Royals' big three at the back-end of the bullpen deservedly received most of the attention, but Frasor was also terrific for them in middle relief, posting a 1.53 ERA in 23 appearances after coming over in a trade with the Rangers. The 37-year-old should have another effective year or two left in the tank.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Melky Cabrera's preference is to not re-sign with the Blue Jays.

The reasoning is that he wants to get away from the artificial surface at Rogers Centre. Cabrera was already looking unlikely to end up back in Toronto after the club signed Russell Martin to an $82 million contract. The outfielder is said to prefer to play on the East Coast or in the Midwest.

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Indians are "out" on free agent Chase Headley.

The Indians made a few inquiries but have already determined that Headley, who's being courted by several teams, will cost too much. Cleveland is not expected to be a big player in this year's free agent market. Headley seems most likely to re-sign with the Yankees, though the Giants have suddenly emerged as an intriguing potential match with Pablo Sandoval walking as a free agent.

MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez reports that the Diamondbacks have signed Cuban defector Yasmany Tomas to a six-year contract worth $68.5 million.

The 23-year-old corner outfielder was initially said to be seeking a contract worth more than the record six-year, $72.5 million pact that Rusney Castillo got from the Red Sox in August, but there have been questions about Tomas' defensive capabilities so he wasn't able to find that kind of offer. His contract with Arizona comes with an opt-out after four years. The Diamondbacks, under new chief baseball officer Tony La Russa, beat out the Braves, Padres, Giants, and Phillies to land their new right fielder. If the power hype is real, he's going to mash at Chase Field. There isn't a much better fit from a fantasy perspective.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Padres and Dodgers have discussed a Matt Kemp trade.

Rosenthal adds, however, that there's been "nothing that recent" and there is "no deal close." Kemp finished the 2014 season in fine form and would give the San Diego offense a needed boost, but the Dodgers may opt to keep him now that Hanley Ramirez has signed with Red Sox. Los Angeles probably needs retain the right-handed power that Kemp provides.

ESPN's Jayson Stark heard from two sources that the Yankees offered the Phillies "a utility player" for shortstop Jimmy Rollins.

That didn't get the job done. The Phillies seem to have a lofty asking price for Rollins, who turns 36 years old this week and is owed $11 million next season in the final year of his four-year, $44 million deal. They're simply not going to be able to get a top prospect or young, productive major league talent in exchange for the veteran shortstop.

Rays designated INF/OF Sean Rodriguez for assignment.

Due another raise through arbitration, Rodriguez was considered a likely non-tender candidate, so the Rays simply decided to cut ties a little bit early. He could draw interest on waivers due to his versatility. Rodriguez batted .211/.258/.443 with 12 home runs over 259 plate appearances this past season.
Nov 26 - 1:33 PM

Rays signed RHP Ernesto Frieri to a one-year, $800,000 contract.

Frieri could make as much as $3.15 million with incentives. The 29-year-old is coming off a nightmare year in which he posted a 7.34 ERA over 48 appearances between the Angels and Pirates, but he has enjoyed great success in the past. Known for their success with reclamation projects, the Rays will attempt to strike gold once again.
