James Loney Headshot

Rangers signed James Loney to a minor league contract.

Loney hit .265 with nine home runs and 34 RBI in 100 games for the Mets in 2016. Loney remains a better real life player than a fantasy option, as he has always been a light hitter. He will not be much help in fantasy if he makes the big club for the Rangers.

Brett Eibner Headshot

Brett Eibner was designated for assignment.

This move was made to make room for newly signed Santiago Casilla to the big club. Eibner hit just .193 last season, and does not figure to make any impact in fantasy.

James Henderson Headshot

Cubs signed Jim Henderson to a minor league contract.

The veteran is getting an invite to Spring Training, and could seriously challenge to be a veteran presence in the Cubs bullpen. No need to target him in fantasy just yet.

Jabari Blash Headshot

Padres designated Jabari Blash for assignment.

Blash has been designated for assignment by the Padres after appearing in 38 games for the team in 2016. Blash hit just .169 with 3 home runs and five RBIs in 84 at-bats, so his designation shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. The 27-year-old has shown the ability to hit at the AAA level, and it wouldn't be totally surprising if he caught on with another Major League team in 2017.

Joba Chamberlain Headshot

Joba Chamberlain has signed a minor league deal with the Brewers.

Chamberlain appeared in 20 games for the Indians in 2016 before refusing a Minor League assignment and becoming a free agent, and it appears as though he's signed a minor-league deal with the Brewers today. The former Yankee showed that he still has some gas left in the tank as he posted a respectable 2.25 ERA in 20 innings pitched last season. Whether or not he can continue to post similar numbers is unknown but the signing is a low-risk move for the Brewers who have bolstered their bullpen with the signing of Chamberlain.

Alejandro De Aza Headshot

Athletics signed OF Alejandro De Aza to a minor league deal.

De Aza will provide solid major league depth at the minor league level for the A's but his day's as a productive starting outfielder are likely long gone.

Mark Trumbo Headshot

Orioles have officially signed Mark Trumbo to a three-year contract.

No surprise here that the Orioles wanted to lock down Trumbo for a few years. He had 47 HRs and 108 RBIs last season for the club in what was a break-out season for him. 34 HRs was his previous career high and he had only surpassed 100 RBIs 1 time prior. It was a big change from his 2015 season in which he had just 22 HRs and 64 RBIs. Trumbo will be worth owning this coming fantasy season.

Adam Walker Headshot

Orioles have designated Adam Walker for assignment.

Walker has yet to make his MLB debut. He has struggled in the minors to hit for average, but has displayed pretty decent power, hitting 25+ HRs in 4 straight years. When he does finally make his MLB debut he will not be worth owning in fantasy until he proves otherwise.

Tyson Ross Headshot

Tyson Ross (shoulder) is expected to make his season debut in June.

Ross was great for the Padres for 3 seasons between 2013-2015 but he suffered an injury in his only start of 2016. Shoulder injuries are tough to come back from. The Rangers are hopeful he will be able to overcome the injury and return to form.

Brady Dragmire Headshot

Brady Dragmire was designated for assignment.

Dragmire is only 23 so he has plenty of time to figure out how to make it in the majors, but at this point he loses his spot for the newly signed Tyson Ross.
