First Baseman

1B | Brandon Belt | San Francisco Giants | Transaction
The San Francisco Giants tendered INF Tony Abreu, INF Joaquin Arias, 1B Brandon Belt, OF Gregor Blanco and SP Yusmeiro Petit Monday, Dec. 2, team vice president Bobby Evans confirmed.


Second Baseman

2B | Jemile Weeks | Baltimore Orioles | Transaction, Fantasy,
The Baltimore Orioles acquired 2B Jemile Weeks from the Oakland Athletics Monday, Dec. 2, for RP Jim Johnson, according to a source.

Weeks will likely be given a chance to win a job as a utility man, but he is unlikely to start barring an amazing spring. Fantasy owners need not bother with him in anything but the deepest of AL-only leagues.


Third Baseman

3B | Alex Rodriguez | New York Yankees | Fantasy
New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the team won't use INFs Brendan Ryan or Eduardo Nunez at third base this year if they're without 3B Alex Rodriguez.


Catcher

C | Tyler Flowers | Chicago White Sox | Transaction
The Chicago White Sox non-tendered P Dylan Axelrod and re-signed C Tyler Flowers to a one-year, $950,000 deal.

C | A.J. Pierzynski | Boston Red Sox | Transaction, Free Agents, Fantasy
The Boston Red Sox agreed with free-agent C A.J. Pierzynski (Rangers) on a one-year deal.

C | J.P. Arencibia | free agent | Transaction, Free Agents, Fantasy
The Toronto Blue Jays non-tendered C J.P. Arencibia Monday, Dec. 2, making him a free agent.


Outfielder

OF | Nolan Reimold | Baltimore Orioles | Transaction, Fantasy
The Baltimore Orioles avoided arbitration with OF Nolan Reimold Monday, Dec. 2, by agreeing to a one-year, $1.025 million deal.

OF | Curtis Granderson | free agent | Free Agents, Fantasy
New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson met with free-agent OF Curtis Granderson (Yankees) Sunday, Dec. 1.

OF | Jacoby Ellsbury | free agent | Free Agents, Fantasy
Talks for free-agent OF Jacoby Ellsbury (Red Sox) are moving at a quick pace, and he could sign a deal with a team at the winter meetings next week.

OF | J.D. Martinez | Houston Astros | Fantasy
Houston Astros OF J.D. Martinez is hitting .333 (27-for-81) with six home runs and 18 RBIs in 20 games in the Venezuelan Winter League entering Monday, Dec. 2. "J.D. Martinez has been crushing the ball down there," general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "He's worked on his swing, and the results are pretty positive so far. We're pretty happy with what's happening down there." Martinez will have to compete in spring training to win a spot on the opening day roster, however.


Starting Pitcher

SP | Brett Anderson | Oakland Athletics | Fantasy
The Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Indians are two teams interested in Oakland Athletics SP Brett Anderson.

SP | Daniel Hudson | free agent | Transaction, Fantasy,
The Arizona Diamondbacks non-tendered SP Daniel Hudson Monday, Dec. 2. General manager Kevin Towers said, via team release, that the team will continue to negotiate with Hudson in hopes of bringing him back.

SP | Doug Fister | Washington Nationals | Transaction, Fantasy,
The Washington Nationals acquired SP Doug Fister from the Detroit Tigers Monday, Dec. 2. It's unknown what the Tigers received in return.

The departure of Fister allows Drew Smyly to slide into the starting rotation in Detroit. He'll be a decent late-round option to solidify your fantasy rotation.

SP | Scott Kazmir | Oakland Athletics | Transaction, Free Agents, Fantasy,
The Oakland Athletics have agreed to terms with free-agent SP Scott Kazmir (Indians) on a two-year deal worth $22 million.

SP | Hiroki Kuroda | free agent | Free Agents, Fantasy,
The New York Yankees made an undisclosed one-year offer to re-sign SP Hiroki Kuroda, according to a source with knowledge of the talks. The offer is expected to be in the $15 to 16 million range after he earned $15 million last season. Kuroda went 11-13 with a 3.31 ERA in 2013.

SP | Bronson Arroyo | free agent | Free Agents, Fantasy,
The New York Mets are "not super high" on free-agent SP Bronson Arroyo (Reds) after a report surfaced that general manager Sandy Alderson planned to meet with the free-agent pitcher during the winter meetings. A team source said the Mets may or may not meet with Arroyo.


Relief Pitcher

RP | Jim Johnson | Oakland Athletics | Transaction, Fantasy,
The Baltimore Orioles acquired 2B Jemile Weeks from the Oakland Athletics Monday, Dec. 2, for RP Jim Johnson, according to a source.

Weeks will likely be given a chance to win a job as a utility man, but he is unlikely to start barring an amazing spring. Fantasy owners need not bother with him in anything but the deepest of AL-only leagues.

RP | Neftali Feliz | Texas Rangers | Fantasy,
The Texas Rangers plan to tender contracts to RP Neftali Feliz, SP Alexi Ogando, 1B Mitch Moreland, RP Neal Cotts and OF Craig Gentry.
