  • Atl Relief Pitcher #53
    It’s a non-guaranteed split contract for Stephens, but he’s back on Atlanta’s 40-man roster after electing free agency earlier this month. The 29-year-old righty reliever made just five appearances this past season in the big leagues. He’s extra organizational depth for the Braves heading into next season.
  • Atl Relief Pitcher #56
    No word on the exact financial terms, but it’s a split contract for Murfee, who was non-tendered by the Braves just a few weeks ago after being claimed off waivers from the division-rival Mets. The 29-year-old righty reliever isn’t expected to be ready to contribute until midseason after undergoing right elbow surgery back in late June.
  • Cle Starting Pitcher #51
    Barria heads to Cleveland to compete in spring training for a spot on the Guardians’ season-opening roster. The 27-year-old right-hander struggled to a lackluster 5.68 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 62/30 K/BB ratio across 82 1/3 innings (34 appearances, six starts) this past season for the Angels. He’ll likely operate in a versatile swingman-type role for Cleveland this upcoming season.
  • FA Shortstop #18
    The deal, which is pending a physical, will bring Wendle to Queens after spending the last two seasons with the division-rival Marlins where he posted an underwhelming .610 OPS with five homers and 19 steals across 689 plate appearances over 213 contests. The 33-year-old veteran infielder still offers plenty of defensive versatility, which makes him ideal for a utility role, but he’s not going to make much of an impact at the dish for New York. His presence could make it more difficult for some of the Mets’ top prospects to make their season-opening roster.
  • Mil Relief Pitcher #34
    Carlson, who made the announcement himself on social media, was a second-round pick of the Mariners back in 2017 and has yet to reach the majors. The 24-year-old righty converted to relief full-time this past season, posting a lackluster 5.25 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 61/20 K/BB ratio across 48 innings (39 appearances) for High-A Everett.
  • FA Starting Pitcher #40
    Severino heads to Queens as a high-risk, high-upside speculative gamble, following a disastrous 2023 campaign for the Yankees that resulted in a bloated 6.65 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 79/34 K/BB ratio across 89 1/3 innings (19 appearances, 18 starts). The 29-year-old right-hander owns an extensive injury history, but has been a upper-echelon starter — and near-elite fantasy contributor — when healthy in the recent past. He’s a worthwhile gamble for the Mets as a reclamation project and will be a decent late-round lottery ticket for fantasy managers in drafts next spring.
  • Mil Relief Pitcher #38
    Williams receives the prestigious honor for the second time in his career after recording a career-high 36 saves to accompany a microscopic 1.53 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 87/28 K/BB ratio across 58 2/3 innings (61 appearances). The 29-year-old right-hander has a real case to be the first reliever off the board in fantasy drafts next spring as a likely top-50 pick.
  • Bal Relief Pitcher #74
    Bautista takes home the top honor in the America League, despite missing the final five weeks of the 2023 campaign due to a partially-torn UCL in his right elbow, after posting a sublime 1.48 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 110/26 K/BB ratio across 61 innings (56 appearances). The hard-throwing 28-year-old right-hander will likely remain sidelined until the outset of the 2025 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery last month.
  • Oak Third Baseman
    Alvarez put up some impressive numbers this past season for Triple-A Sacramento in the Giants’ minor league system, slashing .308/.379/.581 with 18 homers and eight steals across 298 plate appearances in 74 contests. The 29-year-old corner infielder will compete in spring training for a role with the Athletics, but will likely open the year at Triple-A Las Vegas.
  • Oak Relief Pitcher
    Ferguson compiled a pedestrian 5.72 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and 86/58 K/BB ratio ac ross 78 2/3 innings (51 appearances, three starts) this past season for Triple-A Reno in Arizona’s minor league system. The 30-year-old righty represents extra organizational relief depth for Oakland heading into next season.
