According to Matt Eddy of Baseball America, the Dodgers have released Jose Miguel Fernandez.

Fernandez was signed for a $200,000 bonus out of Cuba last January and went on to bat .306/.367/.496 with 16 home runs and 65 RBI in 93 games between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City, but he basically disappeared in late July. There are no stats on the record for him after July 29. We'd guess there's a lot more to the story here, but the Dodgers haven't released any details.

Giants signed OF Luigi Rodriguez to a minor league contract.

Rodriguez posted a .276/.319/.497 batting line with 13 home runs and eight stolen bases in 82 games this past season for the Indians' Double-A affiliate. The 25-year-old outfielder has yet to play in a major league game and he probably won't get that opportunity with San Francisco.

Yankees signed C Chace Numata to a minor league contract.

Numata batted just .249/.318/.351 with four home runs and 28 RBI in 84 games this summer for the Double-A affiliate of the Phillies. The 25-year-old catcher is nothing more than minor league depth for the Yankees.

Rockies signed RHP Scott McGough to a minor league contract.

McGough registered a 2.75 ERA in 55 2/3 innings of relief this past season between the Double-A and Triple-A affiliates of the Orioles, though that came with a less inspiring 1.49 WHIP. The 28-year-old right-hander is doubtful to make a significant impact with Colorado.

White Sox signed RHP Dustin Antolin to a minor league contract.

Antolin was dumped from the Nationals' minor league system around the middle of the 2017 season after struggling badly in four starts and 20 relief appearances at Triple-A Syracuse, but he went on to post good numbers for the Somerset Patriots of the independent Atlantic League. The 28-year-old right-hander will likely open the 2018 season at Triple-A Charlotte.

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets are "keeping tabs" on free agent reliever Joe Smith.

They're also said to be monitoring the markets for Addison Reed, Bryan Shaw, and left-hander Mike Minor. Smith is a favorite of former Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway, who became the Mets' manager earlier this month. The sidearming right-hander registered a sharp 3.33 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 71/10 K/BB ratio in 54 innings this past season between Toronto and Cleveland.

In a new team podcast, Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said the club will make a "full-court press" for Shohei Ohtani.

Dipoto mentioned on that same topic that the team would be willing to play slugger Nelson Cruz a few days in the outfield to accommodate Ohtani being able to DH on the days he's not pitching. The Mariners have long been considered a candidate for Ohtani because of their history with Japanese players (Ichiro Suzuki, Hisashi Iwakuma, Kazuhiro Sasaki, just to name a few), but also because they have an obvious need for starting pitching. The fact that the M's would also be willing to let Ohtani hit, at least according to the podcast, is something that could serve them well in their bid for the 23-year-old two-way talent. It wouldn't be a major upset at all if Ohtani ends up playing for the Mariners, though it's too early to list them (or any other team) as a frontrunner.

Jose Martinez is using the Venezuelan Winter League to familiarize himself at first base.

Martinez has spent most of his career in the outfield, and while first base may not be as hard as Ron Washington said it was in that movie, there's still a learning curve. The move is another way to get Martinez in the lineup, as he was one of the few pleasant surprises at the big league level for St. Louis this past year. He did get some action at the position but looked shaky at times.
