C | Carlos Ruiz | Philadelphia Phillies | Fantasy
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz was suspended 25 games after testing positive for Adderall, according to two league sources. Adderall is commonly used to control attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Ruiz will be allowed to take part in spring training and can play in extended spring games in April while he's serving his suspension.

OF | Dexter Fowler | Colorado Rockies | Fantasy
The Colorado Rockies are not actively shopping OF Dexter Fowler, but the team is willing to listen if the Atlanta Braves, Philadelphia Phillies or Tampa Bay Rays call. The Rockies' search for a dependable starting pitcher could push them to part ways with Fowler. The Braves see Fowler as a backup plan if they can't sign free-agent OF B.J. Upton (Rays).

OF | Ichiro Suzuki | New York Yankees | Transaction, Fantasy
The New York Yankees reportedly agreed to a one-year deal worth $5 million plus incentives to re-sign OF Ichiro Suzuki Tuesday, Nov. 27. Suzuki's deal is a dramatic pay cut from his $18 million last season.

SP | Zack Greinke | free agent | Free Agents, Fantasy,
The Los Angeles Angels are unlikely to re-sign SP Zack Greinke after signing RP Ryan Madson, according to sources. The Angels simply don't seem ready to provide Greinke with a record-breaking contract for a right-hander. Greinke has seen strong interest from the Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers. The Angels are also unlikely to chase after free-agent SPs Anibal Sanchez (Tigers) or Kyle Lohse (Cardinals).

SP | Scott Feldman | Chicago Cubs | Injury, Fantasy,

RP | Aroldis Chapman | Cincinnati Reds | Transaction, Free Agents, Fantasy

However, the Giants are hesitant to tender him a contract by Friday, Nov. 30. San Francisco would have to offer Wilson $6.8 million after he made $8.5 million last season. They can still re-sign him with a guarantee lower than $6.8 million and a contract filled with incentives. Wilson reportedly isn't excited about that possibility.
