Dustin Pedroia (knee) has been cleared to begin running.

Pedroia mentioned on a podcast last week that his goal is to be ready for Opening Day. With him being cleared to run a full month ahead of the start of spring training, it may just give him a shot. Boston will likely take things very carefully with the 34-year-old second baseman, however, and we'll need to hear the words "baseball activities" before getting too optimistic. Still, this is good news for Pedroia and Red Sox fans.

White Sox sent OF Jacob May outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

May was designated for assignment a week ago to make room on the 40-man roster for Miguel Gonzalez. He went 2-for-36 in very limited time with the White Sox in 2017. He'll serve as outfield insurance for the 2018 season.

Padres signed C Rafael Lopez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Lopez played in 24 games with the Blue Jays in 2017, but selected free agency after being outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo in November. He hit .222/.306/.463 in his time with Toronto. He'll get a chance to compete for the backup catching job in San Diego.

Marlins signed 1B Jonathan Rodriguez to a minor league contract with an invitation to MLB spring training.

Rodriguez spent 2017 with the Twins organization, where he was also on a minor league deal. The 28-year-old first baseman put up big numbers with a .926 OPS, but he did most of his damage in Double-A Chattanooga. As bad as the Marlins are, it's unlikely Rodriguez becomes anything more than organizational fodder for Miami in 2018.

Padres invited SS prospect Fernando Tatis Jr. to MLB spring training.

Tatis Jr. has seen his stock rise exponentially over the last couple of years, and he hit 22 homers at the Low-A and Double-A level in 2017. The son of former all-star Fernando Tatis, the younger Tatis has big-time power, quality speed and makes enough hard contact to compensate for the strikeouts. Despite the fact he won't turn 20 until next year, he still has a chance to be a contributor to the Padres in 2018. The sky's the limit in terms of his potential.

Mets designated RHP Chase Bradford for assignment.

Bradford's removal from the 40-man roster became necessary after the Mets signed Adrian Gonzalez. He pitched in 28 games in 2017 for New York; registering a 3.74 ERA and striking out 27 in his 33 2/3 innings.
Jan 18 - 10:13 AM

Brewers signed RHP Ernesto Frieri to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Frieri has pitched in just six games at the big-league level in the past two seasons, and spent most of 2017 in Triple-A for the Rangers and Mariner organization. The former Angels closer will likely provide organizational depth for Milwaukee in the 2018 campaign.
Jan 18 - 10:09 AM

Blue Jays signed RHP Al Albuquerque to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Albuquerque had strong numbers in a small sample size in 2017, posting a 2.50 ERA in 21 games in stops with the Royals and the the White Sox. The 31-year-old right-hander will have a chance to win a job in the Toronto bullpen, but could be a back-and-forth player as he has been for most of his seven seasons.
