Giants GM Brian Sabean said they have no intentions to free-agent pitcher Max Scherzer.

The size of the contract that signing Scherzer will require, along with his age (30), and the draft pick attachment has made some teams shy away from him. At this point it is looking most likely that the Tigers will resign him, though anything can happen--though the Giants look to be out of the bidding.

Craig Breslow's decision on who to sign with is coming down between the Cubs and Red Sox.

With basically half of the Red Sox team moving over to Chicago, the Cubs make an appealing landing spot for Breslow, though he has spent the past couple of seasons with Boston. He has offers on the table from both teams and will make his decision soon. No matter where he signs, though, it is doubtful he'll have much of a fantasy impact as he had a 5.96 ERA in 54.1 innings in 2014.

Rangers have shown interest in pitcher Brandon Beachy.

Beachy is recovering from his second Tommy John surgery, so any deal he makes is going to be heavily incentive-laden. Texas doesn't seem to be a great landing spot considering Beachy's situation, but if the Rangers are willing to pony up, that may be his final destination. Nothing is set in stone at this point and it could be several weeks before Beachy agrees to a deal.

Josh Johnson is close to a deal with the Padres.

The oft-injured right-hander missed all of the 2014 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but it looks as though the Padres are willing to give him another chance. He will likely receive a deal with a low downside guarantee that is filled with incentives. If he could stay healthy for a nice stretch, Johnson could be a decent asset for fantasy owners, especially since he will be pitching a nice chunk of games in Petco Park.

Yankees and Jason Grilli are still open to discussions about bringing the veteran reliever to the Bronx.

Grilli had a career resurrection during his first three seasons in Pittsburgh, but has since regressed. If he can stay healthy, he can be a serviceable middle reliever, but his best days are behind him. The Yankees were said to be off the Grilli wagon, but could be bluffing in hope that he'll accept a lesser deal.

Orioles are showing interest in signing outfielder Ichiro Suzuki.

It's no shocker that Ichiro is well past his prime, but he could be a valuable fifth outfielder for a handful of teams. If they Orioles bring Ichiro into the fold, he'll likely serve as a pinch-hitter that gets an occasional start. His fantasy value has basically vanished.

Angels are still trying to resign 2B Gordon Beckham.

With the departure of Howie Kendrick, the Angels would be wise to give Beckham a longer look. He hit .268 with two home runs and eight RBI in 56 at-bats for the Angels late last year and has the potential to do well in a fresh start away from Chicago.

Brad Penny is down to three teams and will decide later this week.

Penny still is capable of throwing his fastball in the low 90s, and can generate a good share of grounders while on the mound. He looked good in the minors and much worse in the majors last season, giving up 19 earned runs in only 26 innings for Miami. It will be intriguing to see where he ends up hanging his cleats this season.

Mark Teahen has retired from baseball.

Teahen played seven years in the majors splitting time with the Royals, White Sox and Blue Jays. His best season came in 2006 when he hit .290 with 18 home runs, 69 RBI and 10 stolen bases for the Royals over 109 games. Teahen's last major league season came back in 2011 appearing in 78 games between the White Sox and Blue Jays.

Twins are interested in free agent infielder Jack Hannahan.

Hannahan is a utility player that hasn't had much success in the major leagues in his career. He's a better real life, club house player than a fantasy player.
