Mike Bolsinger has agreed to a contract with the Chiba Lotte Marines in Japan.

Bolsinger was outrighted off the Blue Jays' 40-man roster in August after registering an ugly 6.31 ERA, 1.82 WHIP, and 39/27 K/BB ratio in five starts and six relief appearances covering 41 1/3 innings. The 29-year-old right-hander will try to revitalize his career in Nippon Professional Baseball.

Shohei Ohtani has a first-degree sprain of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, according to a physical obtained by Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.

A first-degree sprain is the least severe and this physical was distributed to MLB teams as soon as Ohtani entered the posting system, so there's no real reason for immediate panic. But further damage to the UCL could of course eventually lead to Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. Ohtani underwent platelet-rich plasma treatment in October to address the discomfort that his damaged UCL was causing. He also has a "small free body" in the elbow, according to the report from Yahoo Sports, but the 23-year-old two-way Japanese star should be a full participant at the outset of Angels camp next spring.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Rangers are offering "only marginal prospects" to the Diamondbacks for Zack Greinke.

Nightengale says the Rangers also want the Diamondbacks to pick up a portion of the $138.5 million that Greinke is owed over the next four years -- so this would basically be a salary dump. Arizona made it to the National League Division Series this past season and will be looking to go even further in 2018. It's a rumor that made very little sense from the get-go. Nightengale notes that the Rangers have been talking to the Diamondbacks about some of their other starting pitchers as well. Perhaps the clubs can work something out that doesn't involve Greinke, the fourth-place finisher in the 2017 National League Cy Young balloting.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic hears that Tommy Hunter's new two-year deal with the Phillies will be in the $18 million range.

It's just a little bit more than the Phillies have reportedly committed to Pat Neshek. Hunter registered a strong 2.61 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 64/14 K/BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings with the Rays in 2017. He carries some durability concerns, but the 31-year-old right-hander has been a very effective reliever when healthy.

Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that the Marlins have discussed Dan Straily with the Orioles.

It looks like the fire sale in Miami will extend to the starting rotation. Straily posted a mediocre 4.26 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 170/60 K/BB ratio in 181 2/3 innings this past season with the Marlins, but he had a very good showing in 2016 with the Reds. The 29-year-old right-hander is under contractual control through 2020. 2018 will be his first season of salary arbitration.
