Phillies signed OF Michael Saunders to a one-year, $9 million contract with an $11 million club option for 2018.

Saunders found a less-than-fertile free agent market for himself this offseason after struggling badly in the second half of the 2016 season, but he looks like a good buy-low for the Phillies as they continue their rapid organizational rebuild. If he gets off to another hot start in 2017, the Phillies can deal him for more young talent. Saunders, 30, still finished with a respectable .815 OPS and 24 homers in 140 games last year with Toronto.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, free agent Jason Hammel was "in talks with the Mariners" when he switched agents in late December.

Hammel moved his representation from Octagon to ACES, and his new reps at ACES apparently didn't approve of Seattle's offer. Now that ship has probably sailed. The veteran right-hander is struggling to attract significant interest on the free agent market this winter despite recording 15 wins and a 3.83 ERA in 30 starts last season for the World Series-champion Cubs. There are obviously real concerns about his elbow.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports confirms the Marlins have acquired Dan Straily from the Reds.

Cincinnati will receive right-handed pitching prospects Luis Castillo and Austin Brice along with 20-year-old outfielder Isaiah White. The swap is only pending physicals. It's a big return for the Reds, but Straily is coming off a breakout 2016 season and the 28-year-old right-hander will be under Miami's control through 2020. He had a 3.76 ERA (113 ERA+) in 191 1/3 innings last year despite finishing tied (with Max Scherzer) for most home runs allowed among National League pitchers. Marlins Park is a lot less power-friendly than Cincinnati's Great American Ball Park. Pretty good fit.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports the Marlins are close to acquiring starter Dan Straily from the Reds.

Passan hears that right-handers Luis Castillo and Austin Brice will be headed to Cincinnati in return, along with a third (lesser) prospect. Straily posted an impressive 3.76 ERA and 1.186 WHIP in 191 1/3 innings last season for the Reds despite allowing 31 homers -- tied for the most in the National League. The move to power-sapping Marlins Park should boost his fantasy value, or at least keep it where it was in 2016. Straily, 28, will be under contractual control with Miami through 2020.

Marlins signed RHP Brandon Cunniff to a minor league contract.

Cunniff was outrighted to Triple-A by the Braves in early November. Looks like he has found a new home with the Marlins ahead of spring training. The 28-year-old right-hander owned a 4.24 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 16/9 K/BB ratio across 17 innings with the Braves this past season. He figures to serve as organizational depth moving forward and stands a good chance of earning a call-up should the Marlins become thin in the bullpen as the 2017 season unfolds.
