Felipe Paulino's $4 million club option for 2015 was declined by the White Sox on Friday.

The option carried a $250,000 buyout. This was a no brainer decline for Paulino who threw just 18 1/3 innings with the White Sox this season due to lingering shoulder issues.

Nate Adcock elected free agency after being assigned to Triple-A Round Rock.

It was a rather uneventful season for Adcock in Arlington. He allowed five runs over 10 relief innings for the Rangers this season. He'll now seek a minor league deal elsewhere.

Byron Buxton underwent surgery on his broken finger Friday.

This kid really can't catch a break. He was originally diagnosed with a dislocation as a result of a dive in the Arizona Fall League, but a hand specialist discovered the fracture. The hope is that he'll be ready for spring training but with his lucky lately you should not hold your breathe. Buxton was limited to just 31 games this season due to a variety of ailments.

Juan Centeno was claimed off waivers by the Brewers on Friday.

There really is no offensive ability when it comes to Centeno but the Brewers must have saw enough in his defense to put in a claim. He'll give them some depth behind the dish.

Victor Martinez received a qualifying offer from the Tigers on Friday.

He received an offer and everyone expects him to decline it. The Tigers' are going to do everything in their power to keep him. How could you not want to keep a man who hit .335/.409/.565 with 32 homers and 103 RBI this season? Martinez is reportedly looking for a four-year deal.

Josh Satin was outrighted off the 40-man roster on Friday.

Satin was decent for the Mets as a part-time player in 2013, but he managed just three hits in 35 at-bats for the big club this season.

Max Scherzer received a qualifying offer from the Tigers on Friday.

The offer is reportedly worth $15.3 million, but Scherzer could consider that an insult after the past two seasons he has produced for the Tigers. He took a gamble last off-season by turning down the Tigers' $144 million extension offer and it worked out well for Max, as he's now in position to get more than that on the open market.

Toronto Blue Jays claimed Andy Dirks off waivers, Tigers announce.

It was a difficult season for Dirks rehabbing from back surgery before eventually being shut down with a strained hamstring for the entirety of the 2014 baseball season. He shouldn't have trouble cracking the Jays' Opening Day roster as long as he's healthy. Dirks is a career .276/.332/.413 hitter.
