The Los Angeles Dodgers announced the acquisition of second baseman Logan Forsythe from the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday.
In exchange, the Rays received right-handed pitching prospect Jose De Leon.
This deal gives the Dodgers their 2017 second baseman. Forsythe replaces Chase Utley, who remains a free agent. Los Angeles had been involved in the trade market for this piece, but they had mostly been looking at the Twins' Brian Dozier.
The Toronto Blue Jays agreed to re-sign outfielder Jose Bautista on Tuesday, according to media reports.
Bautista and the Blue Jays came to terms on a one-year, $18 million contract with a mutual option for 2018 and a vesting option for 2019. If all incentives and options are reached and vest, the total guarantee for the contract is expected to be $60 million.
This deal wraps up what has been a long offseason for Bautista, whose market never truly picked up. A reunion with Toronto makes sense for both sides, especially with fellow slugger Edwin Encarnacion leaving for Cleveland a month prior.
The Kansas City Royals reportedly agreed to extend left-handed starting pitcher Danny Duffy on Monday.
The two sides reached a deal on a five-year, $65 million contract. Duffy passed his physical, and the team officially announced the transaction early Monday afternoon.
Duffy has been in the Royals' organization since being drafted by them in 2007 and was on their World Series winning squad in 2015.
The Oakland Athletics agreed to sign right-handed relief pitcher Santiago Casilla on Wednesday, according to media reports.
The sides reached agreement on a two-year, $11 million contract with $3 million in incentives that would push the contract to a $14 million guarantee if met. He can earn $1.5 million in each season based on the number of games he finishes.
Casilla will add depth to the Athletics' bullpen that has not seen a lot of additions this offseason. Oakland, however, had been in the market for a reliever for some time.
The Seattle Mariners announced Wednesday that they have acquired left-handed pitcher Drew Smyly from the Tampa Bay Rays.
In exchange for Smyly, the Rays received outfielder Mallex Smith (whom the Mariners acquired earlier in the day), infielder Carlos Vargas and left-handed pitcher Ryan Yarbrough.
Smyly will fill out the 2017 Mariners' rotation, a group that will look quite different after an offseason full of moves from general manager Jerry Dipoto and company.
