Mets signed RHP Jeremy Hefner to a one-year contract.
Hefner was non-tendered last week, but the Mets will bring him back aboard for 2014 and help him along in his recovery from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The right-hander might not pitch all next year.
Marlins signed 1B Garrett Jones to a two-year, $7.5 million contract.
The contract was agreed to on Monday and then finalized Tuesday after Jones passed his pre-signing physical. The 32-year-old batted just .233 with a .289 on-base percentage in 2013 for the Pirates, but he has some power and fares pretty well against right-handed pitching. Miami will presumably use him in a first base platoon.
Orioles signed RHP Ryan Webb to a two-year, $4.5 million contract.
The deal was agreed to last Friday and then made official Tuesday after Webb passed his physical. He'll likely serve as a setup man next year in Baltimore.
According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Pirates are willing to listen to offers for Justin Wilson.
The Bucs like Wilson -- a dominant hard-throwing left-handed reliever -- but the trade interest in him this winter has been "overwhelming" according to Morosi and if the price is right Pittsburgh might sell. Wilson, 26, owns a 2.07 ERA in 78 1/3 major league innings. The Pirates would likely want MLB-ready talent in return.
White Sox acquired OF Adam Eaton in a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Angels.
White Sox GM Rick Hahn said Tuesday while announcing the swap that he's been pestering Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers about a trade for Eaton since the offseason began, calling him a true "dirtbag" type of player. Eaton got a late start in 2013 because of an injury and never quite got his bat going, but he's a highly-athletic outfielder with great power and speed potential. The 25-year-old could flourish in Chicago.
Angels acquired LHP Tyler Skaggs and LHP Hector Santiago in a three-team trade with the White Sox and Diamondbacks.
Anaheim set its sights on Skaggs when the Mark Trumbo trade talks began and a three-team negotiation allowed for the acquisition. Skaggs saw a dip in velocity in 2013 and the results weren't pretty, but a year ago he was considered one of the top pitching prospects in baseball and a move out of Arizona could be exactly what the 22-year-old left-hander needed. He should be in the Angels' Opening Day rotation and has the potential to carry considerable fantasy value.
Angels acquired LHP Hector Santiago and LHP Tyler Skaggs in a three-team trade with the White Sox and Diamondbacks.
It's a much-needed influx of talented young pitching for the Angels, who had one of the worst staffs in the major leagues in 2013. Santiago, who turns 26 years old later this month, posted a promising 3.56 ERA and 137/72 K/BB ratio across 149 innings this past season for Chicago. Those numbers have the potential to get better in Anaheim -- a much more pitcher-friendly environment.
Diamondbacks acquired OF Mark Trumbo and two PTBNLs in a three-team trade with the Angels and White Sox.
White Sox left-hander Hector Santiago will head to the Angels along with Diamondbacks southpaw Tyler Skaggs. Chicago is getting center fielder Adam Eaton. Trumbo is expected to play left field in 2014 for the Snakes, who have been looking for a power bat since the offseason began. Trumbo, 27, batted .234/.294/.453 with 34 home runs and 100 RBI in 159 games this past season for Anaheim and is heading to one of the more slugger-friendly parks in the major leagues.
