Giants avoided arbitration with INF Ehire Adrianza, agreeing to a one-year contract.

The deal will pay Adrianza $600,000 if he's in the big leagues or $300,000 if he spends the season in the minor leagues. The 27-year-old appeared in 40 games for the Giants in 2016, slashing .254/.299/.381 with a pair of homers and seven RBI in 63 at-bats.

Padres general manager A.J. Preller said Friday that the club would consider re-signing Tyson Ross at a lower cost.

Ross spent the past four years as the ace of the Padres' staff before being non-tendered on Friday. Shoulder woes limited him to just one start in 2016 while earning $9.625 million.
Dec 2 - 9:22 PM

Phillies non-tendered INF/OF Cody Asche.

Asche was designated for assignment earlier in the day on Friday, and unable to find a trade partner the Phillies cut bait with the utility man. The 26-year-old hit a disappointing .213/.284/.350 with four homers and 18 RBI in 218 plate appearances in 2016. There's enough talent here that another team may be willing to take a shot on him as a free agent.
Dec 2 - 9:18 PM

Padres non-tendered C Hector Sanchez.

While not the biggest name of the six players that the Padres non-tendered on Friday, Sanchez could make for an intriguing option on the free agent market. The 27-year-old has hit .241/.278/.354 with 13 homers and 95 RBI over 646 plate appearances in his major league career.
Dec 2 - 9:04 PM

Padres non-tendered INF Jose Pirela.

The move makes the 27-year-old a free agent. He has slashed an unimpressive .226/.246/.321 with one home run and eight RBI over 144 plate appearances in his career at the major league level.
Dec 2 - 9:02 PM

Padres non-tendered RHP Erik Johnson.

The 26-year-old is expected to miss the entirety of the 2017 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in October. He could make for an interesting option on the free agent market on an incentive-laden minor league deal.
Dec 2 - 8:59 PM

Padres non-tendered RHP Jon Edwards.

Edwards missed the entire 2016 campaign after suffering a flexor strain during spring training. The 28-year-old posted a 4.32 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 22/16 K/BB ratio across 16 2/3 innings between the Rangers and Padres in 2015. He may have to settle for a minor league deal on the free agent market.
Dec 2 - 8:56 PM

Padres non-tendered INF Alexi Amarista.

The 27-year-old had a mediocre season in a utility role for the Padres in 2016, hitting .257/.295/.271 with no homers, 11 RBI and nine stolen bases in 150 plate appearances. He'll look for another opportunity in free agency but is likely to be irrelevant in most fantasy formats regardless of where he lands.
Dec 2 - 8:53 PM

Braves non-tendered RHP Chris Withrow.

The 27-year-old hurler did a nice job out of the Braves' bullpen in 2016, registering a 3.58 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 28/17 K/BB ratio over 37 2/3 innings. He becomes another interesting option in what looks to be a deep middle relief market in free agency.
Dec 2 - 8:50 PM

Braves and LHP Paco Rodriguez avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $637,500 contract.

Rodriguez missed the entire 2016 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He sports a stellar 2.53 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 91/30 K/BB ratio over 85 1/3 innings in his big league career though and could be big factor in the Braves' bullpen in 2017.
Dec 2 - 8:47 PM

Nick Piecoro of AZCentral Sports reports that the Diamondbacks have agreed to a two-year, $4 million contract with Jeff Mathis.

It seems like the Diamondbacks are looking to cut payroll this offseason, which prompted the non-tendering of Welington Castillo and the signing of the veteran Mathis. He's likely to share time behind the dish with Chris Herrmann and perhaps Oscar Hernandez, but is a poor bet for any type of fantasy production even in the hitter-friendly home ballpark. Mathis is a career .197/.254/.308 hitter in 2273 career plate appearances.
Dec 2 - 8:44 PM

Brewers non-tendered 1B Chris Carter.

After designating him for assignment earlier in the week the Brewers attempted to trade the veteran slugger but to no avail. He'll join a free agent market that is currently flush with power-hitting options from the right side of the plate, so he may have to wait for a few of the bigger dominoes to fall before landing a deal.
Dec 2 - 8:41 PM

Giants and RHP Cory Gearrin avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.05 million contract.

The 30-year-old right-hander appeared in 56 games out of the Giants' bullpen in 2016, compiling a 4.28 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 45/14 K/BB ratio across 48 1/3 innings. Gearrin earns a nice raise over the $550,000 that he made in 2016.
Dec 2 - 8:39 PM

Padres non-tendered RHP Tyson Ross.

The 29-year-old right-hander made just one start before he was shut down for the season with a shoulder issue. He eventually required surgery in October for thoracic outlet syndrome which puts his status in question for the start of the 2017 season. Still, it's a bit of a surprising move after Ross pitched to a 3.16 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 9.2 K/9 over 522 innings since joining the club in 2013. He'll be an interesting commodity on the free agent market.
Dec 2 - 8:36 PM

Blue Jays sent INF/OF Andy Burns outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

The 26-year-old utilityman passed through waivers unclaimed and will continue to function as organizational depth for the Jays. He appeared in 10 games for the big league club in 2016, going hitless in six at-bats.
