11/25/2014 Yu Darvish, P (Tex) Darvish has been cleared to start his offseason throwing program.

Analysis: Darvish, who missed the last seven weeks of the season because of inflammation in his right elbow, had an MRI and was examined Tuesday by team physician Dr. Keith Meister. Texas said Darvish is already going through his normal offseason training program and expects to start throwing in early December. The right-hander didn't pitch after Aug. 9. He was 10-7 with a 3.06 ERA and 182 strikeouts over 144 1-3 innings in 22 starts in his third major league season.
11/25/2014 Ezequiel Carrera, LF (Det) Carrera has decided to become a free agent after the Detroit Tigers assigned him outright to Triple-A Toledo.

Analysis: The Tigers designated the outfielder for assignment last week. Carrera hit .261 in 45 games for Detroit in 2014. The 27-year-old has hit .253 in 176 major league games with Detroit, Cleveland and Philadelphia.
11/24/2014 Hanley Ramirez, SS (Bos) According to a baseball official with knowledge of the deal, Boston agreed to terms with Hanley Ramirez, who came up to the major leagues with the Red Sox.

Analysis: The official confirmed both deals on the condition of anonymity because the players hadn't passed a physical. The deal was expected to be finalized Tuesday.
11/24/2014 Josh Willingham, LF (KC) Willingham is retiring after 11 major league seasons, agent Matt Sosnick said Monday.

Analysis: The 35-year-old outfielder hit .215 with 14 homers and 40 RBIs in 364 plate appearances this year with Minnesota and Kansas City. He was 1 for 4 in his first postseason appearance, including 0 for 2 in the World Series. Willingham has a .253 career average with 195 homers and 632 RBIs in a big league career that also included time with Florida, Washington and Oakland. Willingham had 35 homers and 110 RBIs with the Twins two years ago.
11/24/2014 Juan Nicasio, P (LAD) The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired Nicasio from the Colorado Rockies on Monday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Analysis: Nicasio will be added to the 40-man roster and infielder Ryan Jackson was designated for assignment to make room, said Andrew Friedman, Dodgers president of baseball operations.
11/24/2014 Pablo Sandoval, 3B (Bos) The Red Sox finalized their five-year contract with Sandoval.

Analysis: Sandoval, the 2012 World Series MVP with San Francisco, was pondering an offer from the Giants worth about $95 million over five years, two people with knowledge of that offer said, also speaking on condition of anonymity because no deal had been announced. Sandoval will take over at third base, joining a lineup that includes David Ortiz. Sandoval said he would like to stay at third for the entirety of his stay in Boston.
11/24/2014 Kyle Seager, 3B (Sea) The Mariners and Seager have agreed to a $100 million, seven-year contract.

Analysis: Seager is coming off his first All-Star game selection and his first Gold Glove. The 27-year-old hit .268 with a career-high 25 homers and 96 RBIs.
11/23/2014 Ike Davis, 1B (Oak) The Oakland Athletics have filled their second key position in five days, acquiring first baseman Ike Davis and international bonus slot 86 from the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for international bonus slot 27.

Analysis: The 27-year-old Davis began last season with the New York Mets and batted .208 with a home run and five RBIs in 12 games before Pittsburgh acquired him April 18 for pitchers Zack Thornton and Blake Taylor. A left-handed hitter, Davis then batted .235 in 131 games for the Pirates, finishing 2014 with a .233 overall batting average and 11 homers and 51 RBIs in 143 games.
11/22/2014 Mike Bolsinger, P (LAD) The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired Bolsinger from the Arizona Diamondbacks for cash.

Analysis: The 26-year-old Bolsinger made his major league debut last season. He had nine starts and one relief appearance for Arizona, going 1-6 with a 5.50 ERA.
11/21/2014 Adam LaRoche, 1B (CWS) LaRoche has agreed to a two-year, $25 million contract with the Chicago White Sox.

Analysis: The White Sox have AL Rookie of the Year Jose Abreu entrenched at first base, so LaRoche is likely to see most of his time at designated hitter. He has spent almost his entire career in the National League, save for six games for Boston in 2009. LaRoche gives the White Sox some sorely needed power from the left side. He hit .259 with 26 homers and 92 RBIs in 140 games this year for NL East champion Washington.
11/21/2014 Evan Reed, P (Det) A judge reinstated a sexual assault case against Reed on Friday, overturning a decision by another judge who found inconsistencies in the alleged victim's story.

Analysis: Reed is charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. He was playing for the Detroit Tigers last spring when a woman says she was drugged at a bar before Reed took her to a Detroit casino hotel on the eve of Opening Day. Reed, who wasn't in court, insists he had consensual sex with the 45-year-old woman. He is a free agent after playing for the Tigers and Triple-A Toledo last season.
11/21/2014 Joel Peralta, P (LAD) Peralta has been acquired by the Los Angeles Dodgers from the Tampa Bay Rays as part of a four-player trade. Tampa Bay received right-handers Jose Dominguez and Greg Harris in the trade announced Thursday night, and the Dodgers also obtained left-hander Adam Liberatore.

Analysis: Peralta, a 38-year-old right-hander, was 3-4 with a 4.41 ERA and one save in 69 games this year.
11/21/2014 Edgar Olmos, P (Sea) The Mariners have claimed Olmos off waivers from Miami.

Analysis: Olmos, 24, pitched at Double- and Triple-A last season in the Marlins organization. He appeared in five games for Miami late in the 2013 season.
11/20/2014 Ronald Belisario, P (CWS) The Chicago White Sox have designated Belisario for assignment.

Analysis: Belisario, 31, was 4-8 with a 5.56 ERA and eight saves in 62 relief appearances in his lone season in Chicago. He signed as a free agent in December.
11/20/2014 Daniel Robertson, LF (LAA) The Texas Rangers have traded outfielder Daniel Robertson to the Los Angeles Angels for a player to be named or cash. The deal was announced Thursday.

Analysis: The 29-year-old Robertson made his major league debut last season and hit .271 with 21 RBIs in 70 games with Texas. He began the season in the minors with San Diego and was acquired by the Rangers in late April.
11/20/2014 Jameson Taillon, P (Pit) The Pirates added Taillon to their 40-man roster Thursday.

Analysis: Taillon, the second overall pick in the 2010 amateur draft, missed the 2014 season after Tommy John surgery on his right arm.
11/20/2014 Ike Davis, 1B (Oak) The Pirates designated Davis for assignment Thursday. Pittsburgh has 10 days to trade Davis or release him.

Analysis: Davis hit .235 with 10 homers and 46 RBIs in 131 games with the Pirates after being acquired in an April trade from the New York Mets. The left-handed Davis served as part of a platoon at first base with right-handed Gaby Sanchez but found himself out of a job with the Pirates likely moving Pedro Alvarez to first in 2015.
11/20/2014 Reymond Fuentes, CF (KC) The Kansas City Royals have acquired Fuentes from the San Diego Padres for left-hander Kyle Bartsch. The trade was announced Thursday.

Analysis: The 23-year-old Fuentes hit a combined .294 with five home runs, 33 RBIs and 25 steals in Triple-A and Double-A last season. He made his major league debut in 2013, hitting .152 in 23 games with the Padres.
11/20/2014 Josh Zeid, P (Det) The Tigers announced Thursday that they have claimed Zeid off waivers.

Analysis: The right-hander appeared in 23 games - all in relief - for the Houston Astros last season.
11/20/2014 Ezequiel Carrera, LF (Det) The Detroit Tigers have designated Carrera for assignment.

Analysis: Carrera hit .261 in 45 games for Detroit in 2014. The Tigers recently traded for center fielder Anthony Gose.
