Pablo Sandoval received a five-year contract offer from the Boston Red Sox on Friday, according to The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo.

The offer is apparently $95 million for five years which is slightly above what Sandoval turned down from the Giants at the start of the 2014 season. He's got a few other teams interested and it's likely that the Giants will tender an offer as well. Sandoval to the Red Sox has long been speculated, so there's always the chance that he simply takes this offer and runs. Stay tuned.

The San Francisco Giants added Cody Hall, Ray Black, Derek Law and Joan Gregorio to their 40-man roster.

Thus the Giants are able to avoid exposing any of these players to the Rule 5 draft. Even so, they are all at least a year away from making significant fantasy contributions.

San Francisco Giants vice president and assistant GM Bobby Evans said free agent reliever Sergio Romo is "clearly an interest of ours."

Romo saved 75 games over the last three seasons with the Giants, though he lost the closing job to Santiago Casilla in the second half last season. Romo could have value as a late-round closer candidate if he winds up in the right situation. If he returns to the Giants he will only have value in holds leagues or as a Casilla handcuff. Romo was hurt by a career-high HR/FB rate and career-low LOB%; he should be much better in 2015 regardless of the roll.

Giants have designated right-hander J.C. Gutierrez for assignment.

The Giants are finalizing their 40-man roster in lieu of next month's Rule 5 Draft. Gutierrez didn't make the cut, but he should be able to find a minor league deal before next spring.

Pablo Sandoval reportedly left Boston without a contract offer from the Red Sox, though he is expecting one.

All signs seem to point to Sandoval winding up in Boston, though there is still plenty of time for a dark horse to emerge. Nearly any ballpark would be better for Sandoval's fantasy value than AT&T Park, though Fenway would probably be one of the best.

The Red Sox have confirmed that they are having constructive talks with Pablo Sandoval's agent regarding a contract.

While there are certainly other teams who are in need of help at third base, the Red Sox are one of the few who would be willing to pony up the amount of money the over-stuffed playoff hero is seeking. Reports confirm that Sandoval actually turned down a five-year, $90 million deal prior to the start of the 2014 season and while his full-season's stats -- .279-16-73 -- weren't exactly worth that kind of money, his .335 playoff average and overall post-season performance are what is freshest in everyone's mind. Monitor the negotiations as Boston is probably the landing spot for the Kung Fu Panda should the Giants not open the vault for him.

Pablo Sandoval rejected a qualifying offer from the San Francisco Giants worth $15.3 million.

Sandoval is coming off another productive season, and it will help that he also had a very good postseason. He is going to get some serious interest in both leagues, with the Red Sox reportedly first up on his tour this offseason.

Manager Bruce Bochy said Andrew Susac is the backup catcher for now.

It's only the beginning of November so there is still plenty of time for this decision to change, but it does seem like it will likely stick. At the major league level in 2014, Susac posted a .273 average with three home runs over 88 at-bats.

Manager Bruce Bochy said he expects that Tim Lincecum will go back into the rotation next year.

Well, that's probably a mistake, but we'll let Bruce Bochy decide that. What we know is that Lincecum is a high strikeout pitcher who can be lethal on the right day. The problem is that those days are few and far between. He seems better suited for a bullpen role, but obviously he's more valuable if he can be an effective starting pitcher. Lincecum started 26 games and made 33 appearances while posting a 4.74 ERA in 2014.
