Moss figures to be a nice movable piece for the Royals, who can platoon and play some DH. The veteran did hit 28 home runs in 2016, but his .225/.300/.484 line made it a costly 28 for owners. He could be a late round target in deeper leagues and monoleagues since he figures to see regular at bats.

Last season with the Rockies, Butler was a little disappointing. He had an ERA of 6.96 in 54 1/3 innings. He made nine starts and three relief appearances before being sent down to Triple -A.

The 29-year-old was an absolute beast in the Korean Baseball Organization last season. He had a batting average of .330 with 26 home runs, 104 RBIs, and 24 stolen bases. He will make $1.5 million and if he has a solid spring he could earn a roster spot on the Giants opening day roster.
Greg Holland Headshot

With the deal being official, Holland gets a guaranteed $7 million with the Rockies. The deal also includes non-closing incentives which make the total $10 million. Holland is coming off of Tommy John surgery and if he isn't ready by the start of the season then expect Adam Ottavino to close comes until Holland is ready to return.

Rosscup pitched in 2015 for the Cubs, going 2-1 with a 4.39 ERA over 33 games out of the bullpen. He will be competing for a bullpen role come Spring Training.
Ike Davis Headshot

Dodgers signed Ike Davis to a minor league contract.

Davis was once a promising power hitting prospect for the Mets but his days as a fantasy contributor are likely long gone unless he finds his power stroke against right handed pitching again.
Kristopher Medlen Headshot

Kris Medlen has signed a minor league deal with the Braves.

Added 01/27/17 8:28 pm (EST)   Source
In 2012-13, Medlen enjoyed his finest stretch as a pro, and it happened to come in Braves uniform. While it is unreasonable to expect those numbers, Medlen could work his way back to the majors, but does not figure to be much of a contributor. Since having two Tommy John surgeries, he has yet to find that old form.

Dodgers signed Ike Davis to a minor league contract.

Davis, who hit 32 home runs for the Mets back in 2012, has struggled mightily in his past four seasons as he's played a total of 82 Major League games since 2014. He last played for the Yankees where he made 15 plate appearances in 2016. He is unlikely to make the Dodgers roster at any point this season but stranger things have happened. He'd have to really show the team's staff that he's recaptured his swing that he had back in the early 2010s with the Mets.

Braves will bring back Kris Medlen on a Minor League deal.

Added 01/27/17 3:39 pm (EST)   Source
Medlen, who pitched with the Braves from 2009-2013, will be signed by Atlanta to a minor league deal in the near future. Medlen ended up having Tommy John surgery back in 2014 and missed the entire season and he also struggled with rotator cuff issues last season with the Royals. Over the past three seasons, Medlen has pitched in just 21 games at the Major League level. He's shown the ability to be a key contributor as a starter if he can stay healthy, and the Braves have decided to roll the dice on bringing him back into the fold. This represents a great low-risk, high-reward move for Atlanta.
