Marlins signed OF Dalton Wheat to a minor league contract.
The 22-year-old outfielder was recently rated as the top prospect in the Independent Leagues by Baseball America. In 67 games for Kansas City in the Independent American Association last year, Wheat hit .335/.414/.403 with no homers, 27 RBI and nine stolen bases. He can capably play all three outfield spots and has tremendous speed and the ability to get on base.
Lloyd McClendon has been named the Tigers' new hitting coach.
Leon "Bull" Durham will be the club's new assistant hitting coach. McClendon, who is returning to the same job he had from 2007-13, is replacing Wally Joyner.
Trevor Bauer will be given additional suture work on his lacerated right pinky in hopes of preventing it from bleeding.
Bauer lasted just two-thirds of an inning in his NLCS Game 3 start after the cut on his finger opened up. He's confident that he'll be able to make a start during the World Series, but then again he also expressed confidence going into his NLCS start. It remains a cloudy situation for now, but more information on his status should be available over the weekend.
Royals signed LHP Onelki Garcia to a minor league contract.
Garcia, 27, spent this past season in the Mexican League and hasn't appeared in the majors since 2013. He's merely a depth addition.
Braves signed LHP Sam Freeman to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Freeman, 29, holds a 3.87 ERA with nearly a strikeout per inning over parts of five big league seasons, but he's always had awful control. However, as a lefty who throws in the mid-90s, he's certainly worth a shot on a minor league contract.
