Scott Barnes RP CLE 46 Mins
Barnes was designated for assignment Sunday.
Barnes spent 2014 at Triple-A Colorado Springs, posting a 3.69 ERA and 1.21 WHIP while striking out 25 over 31.2 innings. It appears the Indians don't have much faith in him, removing him from the 40-man after acquiring Charles Brewer from the Diamondback.
Pablo Sandoval 3B SF 2 Hrs
Sandoval's decision on which team to sign with will be made at some point this week, WEEI.com reports.
Sandoval reportedly has offers from the Giants, Padres and Red Sox.
Charles Brewer SP ARI 11 Hrs
The Indians acquired Brewer from the Diamondbacks on Saturday in exchange for cash considerations, the Arizona Republic's Nick Piecoro reports.
Brewer made a brief stay with the Diamondbacks in 2013 but has spent most of his career in the minors, posting a 4.09 ERA, 7.8 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9. The right-hander will be 27 next season and will likely serve as rotational depth for Cleveland.
Jarret Martin SP LAD 13 Hrs
The Dodgers designated Martin for assignment on Saturday, the Los Angeles Times reports.
The Dodgers needed to clear a room on the 40-man roster for right-hander Mike Bolsinger, who was acquired from the Diamondbacks. The 25-year-old Martin pitched 54.2 innings for Double-A Chattanooga last season, posting a 3.29 ERA with 64 strikeouts and 48 walks.
Mike Bolsinger SP ARI 13 Hrs
The Dodgers acquired Bolsinger from Arizona on Saturday night in exchange for cash considerations, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Bolsinger spent the majority of 2014 at Triple-A Reno, but he did pitch in 10 games (nine starts) for the Diamondbacks, going 1-6 with a 5.50 ERA. The right-hander will provide some rotational depth for the Dodgers, who added him to their 40-man roster.
John Lannan SP NYM 16 Hrs
Lannan signed a minor league contract with the Rockies, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.
Lannan made 25-plus starts in four straight seasons while with the Nationals from 2008-2011, but he's made just 25 appearances (20 starts) at the major league level in the past three years. The lefty spent some time in the Mets' bullpen early in 2015 and went on to post a 6.75 ERA and 1.82 WHIP in 14 appearances (12 starts) between High-A St. Lucie and Triple-A Las Vegas, but don't put it past the Rockies to give him a few starts in 2015.
Rey Navarro 2B CIN 18 Hrs
Navarro has agreed to a major league deal with the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com reports.
Navarro hasn't quite lived up to expectations as a former third-round pick, but he'll be just 25 at the start of next season and posted a career-best .778 OPS between Double-A and Triple-A last season. Defense is Navarro's calling card, and he may be deployed most as a late-inning replacement in the middle infield in 2015, but he's also developed some pop in recent years (24 homers in last two seasons).
Rosell Herrera SS COL 19 Hrs
Herrera was moved from shortstop to center field in the Rockies' fall instructional program and is expected to play at the new position in 2015, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.
Due to the presence of Troy Tulowitzki at the major league level as well as the Rockies' sizable crop of middle infield prospects that includes luminaries such as Trevor Story and 2014 draft pick Forrest Wall, Herrera will transition to the outfield in an attempt to aid his rise through the system. The 22-year-old switch-hitter lost a bit of luster after posting a .302 on-base percentage while showing a steep decline in slugging at High-A Modesto last season, but a nagging wrist injury likely had much to do with the downturn in performance. The speedy, lanky (6-foot-3, 190 lbs.) Herrera should make a relatively smooth move to the outfield in what figures to be a repeat season at High-A. If health permits, it shouldn't be long before scouts salivating over his toolsy skill set once again.
Chris Nelson 3B SD 22 Hrs
Nelson signed a minor league contract with the Phillies, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Nelson has appeared in 282 games at the major league level over the past five seasons, including 27 with San Diego in 2014. The 29-year-old doesn't have much power or speed to speak of, but he's a .308/.364/.479 career hitter at the Triple-A level and gives the Phillies some quality organizational infield depth.
Jonathan Galvez 2B SD 23 Hrs
Galvez signed a minor league contract with the Yankees, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Galvez hit .280/.354/.449 with 10 homers in 103 games with the Padres' Triple-A El Paso affiliate as a 23-year-old in 2014, but it wasn't enough to earn an invite to attend spring training with the Yankees. He had posted double-digit steals in each of his previous five seasons but didn't come close in 2014, getting caught five times in eight attempts.
