For The Last 15 Days
 
Justin Upton, LF, SDP12/19/2014 5:03:00 PM
Description: The Padres have acquired outfielder Justin Upton.
Insight: The deal is now official, and Upton will continue to be a threat, even in a pitcher-friendly park. He has a lot of nice pieces surrounding him.
Alex Rios, RF, KAN12/19/2014 4:54:00 PM
Description: The Royals have signed outfielder Alex Rios to a one-year $11 million contract.
Insight: The deal has a mutual option for 2016, and would be worth $12.5. Rios will be 34-years-old at the start of the season, but he could be worth a look later in drafts.
Matt Joyce, RF, ANA12/16/2014 3:02:00 PM
Description: Outfielder/DH Matt Joyce has been traded to the Angels.
Insight: Joyce is strickly a platoon player. He's a career .261 hitter with an .819 OPS against right-handers and a .189 hitter with an ugly .573 OPS against southpaws.
Michael Morse, LF, SFG12/16/2014 2:46:00 PM
Description: Outfielder/first baseman Michael Morse has signed a deal to play with Miami, according to mlb.com.
Insight: Morse is expected to play first base, though he can also handle the outfield if needed. He could bat cleanup and be protection for Giancarlo Stanton which would offer him plenty of opportunities to drive in runs. On the other hand, Marlins Park is a hard place to go deep.
Melky Cabrera, LF, CWS12/14/2014 12:44:00 PM
Description: Outfielder Melky Cabrera has agreed to a three-year deal with the Chicago White Sox, pending a physical.
Insight: Cabrera batted .301/.351/.458 with 16 home runs and 73 RBI in 139 games this season. The White Sox are putting together an excellent offseason, having already added starter Jeff Samardzija, closer David Robertson and Adam LaRoche.
Yoenis Cespedes, LF, DET12/11/2014 2:34:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox have traded Yoenis Cespedes to the Detroit Tigers.
Insight: Adding Cespedes to Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez in the heart of the Tigers lineup will make it very difficult on opposing pitchers. Cespedes is expected to play in left field.
