- Oswaldo Arcia signed with Nippon-Ham Fighters.
Oswaldo Arcia is heading to Japan, signing with Shohei Ohtani's old team. Arcia, who's still only 26 years old, hit .326/.410/.639 at Triple-A last season. I'm convinced he could hit 25 homers per season in the majors, but platoon designated hitters aren't exactly in high demand.— Aaron Gleeman (@AaronGleeman) December 15, 2017

- Former Mariners’ prospect is headed to Philadelphia.
Right-hander Enyel De Los Santos will go to Philadelphia as @BNightengale said. He's the Padres' No. 13 prospect. Hard thrower, unclear long-term if he's a starter or bullpen type. Been a very effective Minor League starter.— AJ Cassavell (@AJCassavell) December 15, 2017
- Check out how Javi Baez spends his offseason.
