Rangers purchased the contract of RHP Jerad Eickhoff from Double-A Frisco.

Eickhoff, 24, held a 4.08 ERA and 144/52 K/BB ratio over 154 1/3 innings at Frisco in 2014. The former 15th-round pick is now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.

Rangers purchased the contract of C Jorge Alfaro from Double-A Frisco.

One of the best catching prospects in the game Alfaro needs more seasoning but the Rangers needed to add him to the 40-man roster in order to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft. The 21-year-old batted .261/.323/.440 with 17 homers and 87 RBI between High- and Double-A this season.
Nov 20 - 11:17 PM

Rangers purchased the contract of INF Hanser Alberto from Double-A Frisco.

Alberto, 22, batted .273/.306/.386 with seven homers and 16 stolen bases between High- and Double-A this past season. The young infielder is now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.
Nov 20 - 11:14 PM

Angels designated OF Alfredo Marte for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Dan Robertson. Marte had been claimed off waivers last month from the Diamondbacks.
Nov 20 - 11:11 PM

Rangers purchased the contract of RHP Luke Jackson from Triple-A Round Rock.

Jackson struck out over a batter per inning but held a 5.40 ERA between Double- and Triple-A this past season. Still, the Rangers didn't want to expose the former sandwich round pick to the Rule 5 Draft.
Nov 20 - 11:08 PM

Rangers designated OF Jim Adduci for assignment.

The Rangers are attempting to sell his rights to a team in Japan. Adduci hit in the minors, but he'll turn 30 in May and has managed just a .189/.259/.242 line over 148 big league plate appearances.
Nov 20 - 11:07 PM

Angels acquired OF Daniel Robertson from the Rangers in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Robertson hit .271/.333/.333 with six steals over 70 games for the Rangers this past season. He'll try to crack the Angels' Opening Day roster as an extra outfielder.
Nov 20 - 11:05 PM

Astros purchased the contract of RHP Michael Feliz from Low-A Quad Cities.

There was initial surprise earlier Thursday that they didn't add Feliz to their 40-man roster along with their other roster moves, but they eventually had a change of heart and decided to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft. Feliz, 21, is a hard-thrower who posted a 4.03 ERA with 111 strikeouts over 102 2/3 frames at Quad Cities in 2014.
Nov 20 - 11:02 PM

Mariners acquired RHP Sam Gaviglio from the Cardinals in exchange for INF/OF Ty Kelly.

Gaviglio, a former fifth-round pick, held a 4.28 ERA with 126 strikeouts over 136 2/3 innings at Double-A this season. The 24-year-old could start next season at Triple-A.
Nov 20 - 10:24 PM

Cardinals acquired INF/OF Ty Kelly from the Mariners in exchange for RHP Sam Gaviglio.

Kelly has been added to the Cards' 40-man roster and could have a shot to crack the Opening Day roster in a bench role. The 26-year-old is a career .282/.387/.386 hitter in the minors, switch-hits and can play all over the field.
Nov 20 - 10:22 PM

Padres designated OF Yeison Asencio for assignment.

Asencio hit .291/.330/.433 with 15 homers over 138 games between Double- and Triple-A this season. He just turned 25, so it's possible he'll draw interest on waivers.
Nov 20 - 10:15 PM

Padres designated RHP Blaine Boyer for assignment.

Boyer pitched pretty decently for San Diego in 2014, holding a 3.57 ERA over 32 relief appearances. He was arbitration-eligible, though, and the Padres decided they had a better use for the 40-man roster spot.
Nov 20 - 10:11 PM

Padres purchased the contract of OF Alex Dickerson from Double-A San Antonio.

Dickerson missed most of the season following heel surgery, but he played well when healthy, batting .321/.367/.496 with three homers over 34 Double-A contests. He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.
Nov 20 - 10:10 PM

Padres purchased the contract of 2B Taylor Lindsey from Triple-A El Paso.

Acquired from the Angles in the Huston Street trade, Lindsey had a disappointing 2014 campaign with just a .238/.306/.372 batting line. He'll turn just 23 next month, though, and was certainly worth protecting from the Rule 5 Draft.
Nov 20 - 10:08 PM

Padres purchased the contract of RHP Tayron Guerrero from High-A Lake Elsinore.

Guerrero thrived in a full-time move to the bullpen this past season, posting a 1.45 ERA with 56 strikeouts over 49 2/3 innings. The 23-year-old is now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.
