San Francisco is trading a conditional draft pick to Miami for OT Jonathan Martin, per league sources.
Cons of acquiring Martin: Has been terrible both years in league, comes with obvious baggage. Pros of acquiring Martin: He's cheap, he played for Harbaugh at Stanford, he's only 24 and was a 2nd-round pick two years ago. I see this as a low-risk, high-reward move for the once again savvy 49ers. ANALYST: Steve Perrotta
Rangers released OF Nate Schierholtz.
Schierholtz was informed that he would not make the team, and the outfielder opted to request his release from the club instead of being sent to the minors. He'll now search for another club that can provide him with a spot on the 25-man roster. Analysis: Ben Diamond
