Latest Headlines

Marlins general manager Dan Jennings told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that the team will not trade Casey McGehee.

Jennings also confirmed that the Marlins have no plans to deal slugger Giancarlo Stanton, but it's a bit surprising that he has such a hard stance on McGehee. While the 31-year-old has put together a nice comeback season, he's not a long-term building block. Still, the Marlins don't appear interested in selling high.

Padres shortstop prospect Trea Turner could be headed to the Nationals in the three-team Wil Myers trade.

Here's how Ken Rosenthal breaks it down, per a source: Turner and pitching prospect Joe Ross would go to the Nationals. Myers, Ryan Hanigan, and minor league pitcher Jose Castillo would go to the Padres. Steven Souza, Travis Ott, Rene Rivera, Burch Smith, and Jake Bauers would head to the Rays (with Souza and Ott coming from the Nats). Turner, the 13th overall pick in the 2014 draft, batted .323/.406/.448 in 69 games this past season between two levels of Low-A ball. He'll have to be called a player to be named later in the swap because he signed with the Padres less than six months ago.

Nick Markakis underwent fusion surgery Wednesday to repair a herniated disk in his neck.

The expectation is that Markakis will be able to begin baseball-related activities by mid-February, but the Braves are probably going to take it easy on him in camp this spring just to be safe. The 31-year-old outfielder signed a four-year, $44 million free agent contract with Atlanta in early December. He'll be the team's leadoff man and right fielder in 2015.

Marlins signed 1B/OF Michael Morse to a two-year, $16 million contract.

Morse hit .279/.336/.475 with 16 homers and 61 RBI in 131 games for the Giants last season. While he is 32 years old, Morse has shown a consistent bat when he's healthy and at a cheap price, he should provide nice numbers and veteran leadership for a Marlins offense that's coming together this off-season.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that the Giants have re-signed Sergio Romo to a two-year, $15 million deal.

Romo had an up-and-down 2014 season, ending the year with a 3.72 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 59/12 K/BB ratio over 58 innings. While he drew interest from multiple big-market teams, he's apparently decided that he's most comfortable remaining with the reigning champs. They'll be getting him on a relatively cheap deal in comparison to other relievers this off-season.

Mariners acquired OF Justin Ruggiano from Cubs for RHP Matt Brazis.

Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reported that the deal was done. Ruggiano hit .281/.337/.429 over 81 games in 2014. Health will be the primary concern with Ruggiano, though, as he underwent ankle surgery near the end of the 2014 campaign. He will compete for a starting job and, if nothing else, should be a serviceable backup bat for the M's.
Dec 17 - 12:35 PM

Red Sox acquired RHP Anthony Varvaro from the Braves for RHP Aaron Kurcz and cash considerations.

Varvaro was designated for assignment by the Braves several days ago. He's been a solid bullpen contributor, posting a 2.99 ERA over 153 appearances in the last four seasons. In 2014, he put up a 2.63 ERA. He should serve as a quality arm and supply the Red Sox with a nice depth piece.

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Ian Desmond "remains a possibility" for the Mariners.

The Nationals don't seem optimistic about signing Desmond to a long-term extension, so they might decide to get something for him now even though he'd be a big part of a contending team in 2015. The Mariners are reportedly close to trading for a hitter, and it's possible Desmond might be their guy. The shortstop will make $11 million in 2015 before hitting free agency next winter.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are talking to teams about a trade involving Brandon League.

Rosenthal says that the Dodgers are willing to eat almost half of League's $7.5 million salary for next season in order to move him. League is coming off a nice season, having posted a 2.57 ERA over 63 appearances, so he could draw some interest with the Dodgers paying down part of his contract.
Dec 16 - 10:44 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels discussed a possible Josh Hamilton with the Rangers and Padres this offseason.

Rosenthal cautions that the talks were "exploratory in nature" and "did not gain traction." However, while he adds that a trade doesn't figure to take place "anytime soon," he predicts that Hamilton will be dealt before the end of his contract. Hamilton, who is owed $83 million over the next three seasons, had just a .745 OPS last season while being limited to 89 games due to injury.
Dec 16 - 10:40 PM

Padres signed RHP Brandon Morrow to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

Morrow can earn up to $5 million in performance-based bonuses if he's starting and up to $1 million if he's in a relief role. The 30-year-old right-hander was limited to 33 1/3 innings this past season in Toronto because of a finger injury, but he's flashed dominance at times over the course of his eight-year major league career. This could become a good bargain for the Friars.
Dec 16 - 5:53 PM

Indians signed RHP Gavin Floyd to a one-year, $4 million contract.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish says the deal includes $6 million in performance-based bonuses. Floyd was limited to nine starts in 2014 due to a fractured olecranon in his right elbow. He also underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in 2013. But the expectation is that Floyd will be fully healthy by the start of the 2015 season, and there's a chance he'll wind up being a nice addition for the Tribe.
