Right-hander Nick Martinez is staying with the Nippon Ham Fighters for $2.5 million plus incentives in 2019.

There was some talk about Martinez returning to the U.S. this year, with the Mets thought to be interested. The former Rangers starter went 10-11 with a 3.51 ERA for the Fighters last season. He was 17-30 with a 4.77 ERA in four seasons with Texas.

Mariners signed RHP Tyler Danish to a minor league contract.

Danish, a former second-round pick of the White Sox, has surrendered seven earned runs on 17 hits and 13 walks in 13 career innings at the major league level. His numbers in the upper minors are far better and he's only 24 years old, so perhaps the Mariners can get something of use here. Danish was drafted as a starter but has primarily worked in relief as of late.

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand reports that free agent starter Matt Harvey has agreed to a contract with the Angels.

It'll be a one-year, $11 million deal with another $3 million available through performance-based incentives, per Fancred's Jon Heyman. Harvey drew interest from multiple teams this winter -- the Reds wanted him back, and the A's reportedly checked in -- but he'll head to Anaheim looking to further revitalize his career. The former All-Star posted a 4.94 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 131/37 K/BB ratio in 155 innings between New York and Cincinnati in 2018. He is a lock for the Angels' Opening Day rotation, assuming his health cooperates.

Phillies signed INF Phil Gosselin to a minor league contract.

Gosselin, a native of the Philadelphia suburbs, has batted just .263/.314/.361 in 579 career plate appearances at the major league level. The 30-year-old will be organizational infield depth for the Phillies in 2019.

Red Sod signed RHP Zach Putnam to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Putnam sat out the entire 2018 season while recovering from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, but he should be 100 percent for the beginning of the 2019 campaign. The 31-year-old right-hander holds a 3.20 ERA and 162 strikeouts in 152 career innings of relief. This looks like a nice low-cost gamble for a Boston bullpen that (still) needs quite a bit of upgrading.

Pirates signed C Steven Baron to a minor league contract.

Baron, 28, has appeared in just six career games at the major league level and stands 1-for-16 with zero walks and four strikeouts. He'll function as organizational depth at catcher for the Pirates in 2019.

Zach Lee - R - Mets

Mets signed RHP Zach Lee to a minor league contract.

Lee, a former highly-regarded prospect in the Dodgers' system, had a 3.65 ERA and 107/35 K/BB ratio over 145 2/3 innings this past season between the Rays' Double- and Triple-A affiliates. The 27-year-old has made four appearances in the majors during his career and mostly functions as upper-level pitching depth at this point.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo writes that the Giants had "the most impressive presence" among the teams at Troy Tulowitzki's open workout on Tuesday.

In fact, new Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi and manager Bruce Bochy were in attendance. Tulowitzki is from the Bay Area, so many have naturally speculated on the Athletics as a fit, but they reportedly aren't in the mix here. The Giants probably wouldn't be able to promise Tulo a starting job, so he might find a better fit elsewhere. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported on Monday that the Pirates are interested. Obviously it's hard to count on much from the 34-year-old at this point, but he's a fine gamble at the league minimum for most teams.
