Yovani Gallardo (R) Headshot

Gallardo agreed to a contract with the Brewers on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Gallardo will return to the team that drafted him in the second round back in 2004 after the Mariners declined to exercise his $13 million club option for 2018. It's been a rough couple of years for the veteran hurler, as he's turned in a combined 5.57 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 179:121 K:BB over the past two seasons (248.2 innings) with Baltimore and Seattle, respectively. He did turn in a respectable 1.69 ERA over 16 relief innings after being shifted to the bullpen last season, though it remains unclear what role the Brewers plan to utilize him in next year. Either way, given his declining strikeout rate, he doesn't figure to hold much, if any, fantasy value in 2018.

Shawn O'Malley (B) Headshot

O'Malley agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Saturday which includes an invitation to spring training, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

O'Malley missed the majority of the 2017 season while recovering from an appendectomy and arthroscopic shoulder surgery. He ended up appearing in 33 games across three levels of the minors, but hit just .235/.333/.361 over that span before being cast off the Mariners' 40-man roster in September. He'll look to catch on as a utility man, though it's more likely he winds up as organizational depth.

Brandon McCarthy (R) Headshot

McCarthy was traded to the Braves along with Scott Kazmir (hip), Adrian Gonzalez (back), Charlie Culberson and cash in exchange for Matt Kemp on Saturday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

McCarthy made just 19 appearances (16 starts) last season due to injuries and a crowded rotation in Los Angeles, posting a 3.98 ERA and 1.25 WHIP across 92.2 innings of work. Injuries have gotten the best of the veteran hurler in recent years -- he's registered just 155.2 innings over the past three seasons -- but he should factor into the Braves' rotation next season so long as he's healthy.

Scott Kazmir (L) Headshot

Kazmir (hip) was traded to the Braves along with Adrian Gonzalez (back), Brandon McCarthy, Charlie Culberson and cash in exchange for Matt Kemp on Saturday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Kazmir didn't appear in a game for the Dodgers in 2017 while dealing with a recurring hip injury, though he ended up making a few rehab appearances with Triple-A Rancho Cucamonga towards the end of the season. Assuming he's healthy heading into next season, he should compete for a rotation spot, though his recent injury issues could ultimately prompt the Braves to switch him to a long-relief role. He posted a 4.56 ERA and 1.36 WHIP across 26 starts for the Dodgers in 2016.

Charlie Culberson (R) Headshot

Culberson was traded to the Braves from the Dodgers along with Scott Kazmir (hip), Adrian Gonzalez (back), Brandon McCarthy and cash in exchange for Matt Kemp on Saturday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Culberson played in just 15 regular-season games last season, though he garnered 10 playoff appearances due to an injury to Corey Seager and hit an impressive .500/.471/.938 in the process. He's appeared in just 49 major-league games over the past three seasons, hitting .275/.301/.363 over that stretch, but he should be in line for some more opportunities next season as a utility man for the Braves.

Adrián González (L) Headshot

Gonzalez (back) was traded to the Braves along with Scott Kazmir (hip), Brandon McCarthy, Charlie Culberson and cash in exchange for Matt Kemp on Saturday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Following the deal, Gonzalez was designated for assignment, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Gonzalez, who is still owed $21 million next season, is expected to clear waivers and become a free agent within the next week, which explains why he agreed to waive his no-trade clause. The 35-year-old struggled to stay healthy in 2017, playing in just 71 games due to elbow and back issues. When he did play, the veteran first baseman failed to impress, hitting just .242/.287/.355 with three home runs. A healthy Gonzalez will look to catch on with another team and turn things around in 2018, though his days as a reliable fantasy option may be over.

Matt Kemp (R) Headshot

Kemp was traded to the Dodgers on Saturday in exchange for Adrian Gonzalez (back), Scott Kazmir (hip), Brandon McCarthy, Charlie Culberson and cash considerations, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Kemp is set return to the team who drafted him after spending the previous two seasons with San Diego and Atlanta, respectively. The 33-year-old dealt with some hamstring issues in 2017, but still managed to hit .276 with 19 homers in 117 games. He spent his best years with the Dodgers, hitting .292/.349/.495 with 182 homers and 170 stolen bases over nine seasons. If he isn't traded or released before the start of the season, look for Kemp to settle into a corner outfield spot for Los Angeles, which would likely push Joc Pederson to the bench.
Yesterday 2:55 pm (EST)
Adam Eaton (L) Headshot

Eaton (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of the 2018 season, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

Eaton continues to recover from a torn ACL that he suffered in April, but all signs point to the outfielder being fully healthy by the time Opening Day rolls around. Although Eaton was pressing to make it back for a playoff run this past October, once the team was eliminated by the Cubs in the NLDS, the trainers decided to scale back his rehab in order to give him the best opportunity to be 100 percent for 2018. Looking ahead, there will likely be another update on Eaton's status by February.
Yesterday 1:22 pm (EST)
CC Sabathia (L) Headshot

Sabathia agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal with the Yankees on Saturday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Sabathia will return for a 10th year with the Yankees following an impressive season at age 37 in 2017. The southpaw posted a 3.69 ERA and 1.27 WHIP while holding a 120:50 K:BB in 148.2 innings. The most impressive part about Sabathia's season -- besides his quality playoff performances -- was his ability to eat innings and stay healthy for the third straight season, as he notched at least 27 starts for the 12th time in 13 years as a major leaguer. He will provide another reliable arm within New York's stable, and projects as a back-end starter in the rotation for this upcoming campaign.
Yesterday 12:48 pm (EST)
Robby Scott (L) Headshot

Scott (elbow) was able to throw the ball around for the first time since undergoing arthroscopic surgery in mid-October, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Scott reiterated that he was feeling good and on track for spring training, which aligns with the initial timetable concerning his recovery. During the 2017 season, Scott appeared in 57 games out of the bullpen for Boston, posting a 3.79 ERA and 0.98 WHIP with a 31:13 K:BB in 35.2 innings.
