Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays, as well as other clubs, have expressed interest in Welington Castillo.

Castillo was a surprising non-tender by the Diamondbacks on Friday and should be able to land himself a multi-year deal in free agency. Given the struggles of the Rays' trio of catchers in 2016 (Curt Casali, Luke Maile, Bobby Wilson), Castillo would represent a significant upgrade in terms of offense.

Brewers sent RHP David Goforth outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

The right-hander was designated for assignment last week but passed through waivers unclaimed and will continue to function as organizational bullpen depth for the Brewers.
Dec 3 - 10:54 AM

Brewers sent RHP Steve Geltz outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

The veteran right-hander was claimed off waivers from the Rays last week. This move temporarily removes him from the club's 40-man roster, though he's still expected to secure an invitation to spring training where he will compete for a spot in the team's Opening Day bullpen.
Dec 3 - 10:53 AM

Dodgers non-tendered RHP Louis Coleman.

The 30-year-old right-hander was a staple of the Dodgers' bullpen in 2016, compiling a 4.69 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 45/24 K/BB ratio over 48 innings in his 61 appearances. Now a free agent, he'll look to secure a spring training invitation elsewhere.
Dec 3 - 10:42 AM

Reds non-tendered C Ramon Cabrera.

The 27-year-old backstop did a respectable job as Tucker Barnhart's primary backup in 2016, slashing .246/.279/.357 with three homers and 23 RBI in 185 plate appearances. He'll look for another opportunity on the free agent market.
Dec 3 - 10:35 AM

Reds non-tendered OF Gabby Guerrero.

Guerrero, who is the nephew of former MLB star Vladimir Guerrero, was claimed off of waivers from the Diamondbacks last week and now finds himself as a free agent. He struggled with the bat in 2016, slashing .234/.281/.383 across two minor league levels, but possesses enough talent that he should find another club willing to give him a shot.
Dec 3 - 10:30 AM

Reds non-tendered RHP Keyvius Sampson.

The 25-year-old right-hander was designated for assignment last week, but the Reds were unable to find a trade partner. Sampson appeared in 31 games for the Reds over the past two seasons, compiling a 5.60 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 84/53 K/BB ratio over 91 2/3 innings.
Dec 3 - 10:28 AM

Cubs non-tendered RHP Conor Mullee.

The 28-year-old right-hander was claimed off of waivers from the Yankees in early November, but is now a free agent. He spent most of the 2016 season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre where he registered an outstanding 0.99 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 45/11 K/BB ratio across 36 1/3 innings.
Dec 3 - 10:25 AM

Cubs non-tendered LHP Zac Rosscup.

The 28-year-old southpaw missed the majority of the 2016 season after undergoing shoulder surgery. He registered a 4.39 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 29/13 K/BB ratio over 26 2/3 innings with the big league club in 2015.
Dec 3 - 10:23 AM

Cubs non-tendered 3B Christian Villanueva.

Villanueva was forced to miss the entire 2016 season with a fractured right fibula. There's a chance that the club will try to bring him back on a minor league contract.
Dec 3 - 10:21 AM

Cubs non-tendered LHP Gerardo Concepcion.

That move makes the 24-year-old Cuban left-hander a free agent. He appeared in three games for the Cubs in 2016, posting a 3.86 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 2/1 K/BB ratio over 2 1/3 innings. He fired 17 2/3 scoreless innings at Double-A Tennessee to begin the season but was torched for a 7.29 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in his 42 frames at Triple-A Iowa.
Dec 3 - 10:19 AM

Rays non-tendered INF Ryan Brett.

The 25-year-old infielder missed the entire 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He'll look to latch on elsewhere on a minor league deal.
Dec 3 - 10:15 AM

Twins non-tendered RHP Yorman Landa.

The 22-year-old right-hander was added to the 40-man roster last November to protect him from the Rule-5 draft. He compiled a 3.24 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 39/22 K/BB ratio over 41 2/3 innings out of the bullpen at High-A Fort Myers in 2016.
Dec 3 - 10:12 AM

Angels non-tendered INF Gregorio Petit.

The 31-year-old infielder is now a free agent and will look for work elsewhere. He hit just .245/.299/.348 with two homers and 17 RBI in 223 plate appearances with the Angels in 2016.
Dec 3 - 10:09 AM

Angels non-tendered LHP Cody Ege.

The 25-year-old hurler is now a free agent. He was designated for assignment on Thursday to make room for Brooks Pounders who was acquired from the Royals. Ege did well in his 13 appearances with the Angels, posting a 1.04 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 9/3 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings. He should have no problem finding work in the free agent market.
