Starting Pitcher

The Chicago Cubs would like to sign SP Jeff Samardzija to a contract extension and build around him but may trade him if they find that an extension is improbable.

SP | Ryan Vogelsong | San Francisco Giants | Fantasy
Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong's one-year, $5 million deal could be worth more than $6.5 million if he reaches all of his incentives. The deal will become official if he passes his physical next week.

The Baltimore Orioles could show interest in free-agent SP Bronson Arroyo (Reds) and SP A.J. Burnett (Pirates) this offseason.

Relief Pitcher

Boston Red Sox RP Andrew Bailey (shoulder) has visited Boston twice a week during the offseason to work with team trainers and physicians. He is expected to begin a throwing program in January and did not put a timetable on his rehab, although it is believed that he will miss the first half of the 2014 season. "I don't want to say I'm ahead of schedule but things are going really well," Bailey said.

RP | Jim Johnson | Baltimore Orioles | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
The Baltimore Orioles have listened to offers for CL Jim Johnson but no firm talks of a deal with any team have been disclosed. Should Johnson be dealt, RPs Tommy Hunter and Darren O'Day have been discussed as replacements, but the team values O'Day as more of a setup specialist.
