Braves signed RHP Carlos Torres to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Torres was designated for assignment by the Mets in a surprise late-January move and subsequently elected to become a free agent. There was interest from the Asian market, but the 33-year-old right-hander opted for a Braves team that should allow him a clear path to an Opening Day roster spot. Torres was excellent with the Mets in 2014 before struggling in 2015. He's a decent bet for a bounceback in 2016.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the potential contract being discussed between the Orioles and free agent right-hander Yovani Gallardo would be worth three years, $40-45 million.

Nothing's official yet, but there's a ton of smoke here. Multiple outlets have reported that Gallardo and the O's are closing in on a contract. The club will have to surrender the 14th overall selection in this summer's amateur draft should they sign the soon-to-be 30-year-old right-hander, but he provides an upgrade for a rotation that has needed a boost. Last season, Gallardo pitched to a 3.42 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 121/68 K/BB ratio across 184 1/3 innings (33 starts) for the Rangers. Should the Orioles ink Gallardo to a contract, they could next pursue outfielder Dexter Fowler. Pedro Alvarez and Jay Bruce are outside options as well.
Feb 10 - 6:39 PM's Jesse Sanchez hears that Cuban outfielder Lazaro Armenteros continues to weigh his destination options.

Sanchez previously reported that Armenteros would make his team decision on Wednesday. That could still happen, though the hour is drawing late. Among the teams considered potential landing spots for "Lazarito" are the Braves, Cubs, Dodgers, Padres, and Phillies. Should he be unable to reach a decision at this early juncture, it's possible he just waits until July 2, when the next international signing period begins. Armenteros is said to be looking for a bonus in the $15-20 million range.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Orioles and free agent outfielder Dexter Fowler have had an "informal conversation" about a potential contract.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal has reported that Fowler could be a follow-up target for the Orioles should they sign free agent right-hander Yovani Gallardo, so it makes sense that the two parties have at least begun laying unofficial groundwork. A deal in the neighborhood of the two-year, $20 million contract the Dodgers gave Howie Kendrick could be in play for Fowler. Olney has previously reported that MLB executives don't see the 29-year-old outfielder drawing much more than that. His free agency is tied to draft pick compensation.

Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Jay Bruce is a possible trade target for the Orioles.

Rosenthal adds, however, that it's uncertain whether the O's would actually have the prospects -- or being willing to deal the prospects -- to get a deal done. In early December, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported that the Reds had only received "a couple" feeling-out calls regarding the 28-year-old Bruce. In 580 at-bats last season, Bruce hit .226/.294/.434 with 26 homers and 87 RBI. After notching batting averages above .250 in five of his first six seasons, he's failed to crack .230 in either of his past two campaigns.
