Xander Bogaerts is still considered Boston's shortstop, according to two team sources who spoke with The Boston Globe's Pete Abraham.

In other words, as expected, Hanley Ramirez is ticketed for a position change. Most have speculated, in light of Pablo Sandoval's concurrent signing, that Ramirez will be Boston's left fielder next season. At this time, that scenario seems most likely. The only thing that will keep Ramirez at shortstop in 2015, it would appear, is a trade of Bogaerts. If the Red Sox are serious about trading for an ace, Bogaerts would be a logical target of their transaction partner.

Dodgers designated INF Ryan Jackson for assignment.

Jackson was the low-man on LA's 40-man roster totem pole, which is a bad place to be when the club inevitably decides to make an MLB transaction. Decide the Dodgers did on Monday, trading for Juan Nicasio. Jackson, 26, very well could receive waiver claims. He has, in fact, never passed through the waiver process untouched, getting claimed twice (and, separately, traded a different time). The former fifth-round pick of the Cardinals suffered through a rough 2014 campaign highlighted by a serious wrist injury that stole most of his season.

Dodgers acquired RHP Juan Nicasio from the Rockies for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Colorado designated Nicasio for assignment last week, allowing new Dodgers' honcho Andrew Friedman to swoop in and acquire him at a (presumed) discount. However it turns out, consider it a worthwhile gamble. Yes, Nicasio has posted an ugly career ERA of 5.03 over four seasons in the majors. That number, of course, was compiled in Coors Field. Nicasio, the owner of a nice right arm, still retains a little upside, and has already proven, by the age of 28, to be capable of both starting and pitching out of the bullpen. In Los Angeles, he'll be a swing man, and a possible possessor of NL-only intrigue at some point in 2015 if the Dodgers suffer rotational injuries.

Rangers released OF Jim Adduci.

Adduci intends to play in Asia next season, very probably in Japan. The Rangers are in the process of selling his rights, which today's move makes possible. Adduci, 30 in May, slashed only .189/.259/.242 over 148 big league plate appearances.

Rangers signed INF Ed Lucas to a minor league contract.

He'll be at spring training with the club, per an invitation attached to the contract. Very probably, the Rangers never wanted to part with Lucas, whom they claimed off waivers from the Marlins after the season. Instead, they didn't want to waste a 40-man roster spot on him. So Texas themselves waived Lucas, and, this time, he passed through the process untouched. The 32-year-old Lucas has handled six different positions over the past two seasons with the Marlins, slashing .255/.302/.323 over 163 games. He's a solid break-glass-in-case-of-emergency piece.
