Braves activated RHP Cory Gearrin from the 60-day disabled list.

Gearrin was one of a plethora of Braves hurlers who were forced to undergo Tommy John surgery last season. The 28-year-old is expected to return to the Braves bullpen at some point during the first two months of the 2015 season.

Braves activated RHP Brandon Beachy from the 60-day disabled list.

The 28-year-old hurler missed the entirety of the 2014 regular season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March. He's expected to be ready to return early in 2015.

Yankees activated OF Slade Heathcott from the 60-day disabled list.

The Yankees first-round selection from the 2009 draft, Heathcott missed the majority of the 2014 season at Double-A Trenton due to knee surgery. His availability for the beginning of the 2015 season remains in question.

Yankees activated RHP Ivan Nova from the 60-day disabled list.

The 27-year-old right-hander was hit extremely hard over his first four starts of the 2014 campaign and was then forced to undergo Tommy John surgery. His recovery has gone incredibly smoothly to this point and he's on track to rejoin the Yankees rotation within the first few months of the 2015 season.

Yankees activated INF/OF Martin Prado from the 60-day disabled list.

Prado was shut down in mid-September after undergoing an emergency appendectomy. He appeared to be rejuvenated after a mid-season trade to the Yankees, slashing .316/.336/.541 with seven homers and 16 RBI over his final 37 games. With eligibility at second base and third base, and hitting in a hitter-friendly ballpark, Prado should be able to carve out plenty of mixed league fantasy value in 2015.

Yankees activated LHP CC Sabathia from the 60-day disabled list.

Sabathia underwent season-ending knee surgery in July. The 34-year-old left-hander began throwing off flat ground in September but isn't scheduled to do any mound work until spring training. He posted a career worst 5.28 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 46 innings with the Yankees in 2014.
Oct 31 - 11:13 PM

Braves activated RHP Kris Medlen from the 60-day disabled list.

Medlen is in the process of recovering from his second Tommy John surgery. He's expected to be ready to rejoin the Braves rotation at some point early in 2015, though he'll likely be on a strict innings limit.
Oct 31 - 11:08 PM

Braves activated LHP Jonny Venters from the 60-day disabled list.

The 29-year-old southpaw tore his UCL while rehabbing from a second Tommy John surgery, and decided to undergo the procedure for a third time. Venters, who is arbitration eligible this winter, is expected to miss the entirety of the 2015 season.
Oct 31 - 11:01 PM

Cardinals activated LHP Jaime Garcia from the 60-day disabled list.

The veteran southpaw underwent surgery in July to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in his left shoulder. He remains optimistic that he'll be ready to compete for a rotation spot in spring training, but after hurling just 99 total innings the last two seasons, he's very difficult to count on.
Oct 31 - 10:55 PM

Cardinals activated OF Shane Robinson from the 60-day disabled list.

Robinson was forced to go under the knife in late August to repair a separated left shoulder. The 30-year-old hit a paltry .150/.227/.200 in 60 at-bats with the Cardinals in 2014. He'll head into spring training looking to secure a role as a reserve outfielder.
Oct 31 - 10:51 PM

Blue Jays exercised LHP J.A. Happ's $6.7 million option for 2015.

The 32-year-old southpaw did a decent job for the Jays in 2014, posting a 4.22 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 133/51 K/BB ratio over 158 innings. He's expected to open the 2015 campaign occupying one of the final spots in the Blue Jays rotation.
Oct 31 - 10:20 PM

Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said Friday that it's unlikely Jason Giambi will return to the Indians in 2015.

Antonetti didn't go as far as to rule the idea out completely, but did say that it would be a tough fit to carry Giambi on their roster. The 43-year-old is widely respected around the league and may immediately jump into the coaching ranks if he doesn't find a playing gig for 2015.
Oct 31 - 10:12 PM

Mariners activated INF Willie Bloomquist from the 60-day disabled list.

The veteran infielder underwent season-ending surgery on his right knee in early August. The 36-year-old will enter the 2015 season on the final year of his two-year deal with the Mariners.
Oct 31 - 7:54 PM

Dodgers declined RHP Chad Billingsley's $14 million option for 2015.

They'll instead pay him a $3 million buyout. The veteran right-hander underwent surgery in June to repair a torn flexor tendon in his pitching elbow and is still in the recovery process. He'll explore his options as a free agent this winter.
Oct 31 - 7:46 PM

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Friday that Colby Lewis will test out the free agent market after the two sides were unable to reach a deal.

Daniels isn't shutting the door on re-signing Lewis, but the right-hander will now be free to talk to other clubs. Lewis held a 5.18 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 170 1/3 innings this season but pitched pretty well in the second half, posting a 3.86 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.
