Burnett option will be worth at least $10M and as much as $12.75M. Presumably #Angels wanted him off books to avoid luxury tax. (3/3)
According to @pgammo, #Angels wanted Burnett to waive player option for 2015. Difficult to imagine Burnett agreeing to that… (2/3)
Sources confirm report by @pgammo that #Angels had interest in #Phillies’ Burnett. Talks stalled, however… (1/3)
Yadi is back. Just activated by #STLCards.

Here’s wishing Montgomery the best. #Phillies employees revere him.
In Montgomery’s absence, Pat Gillick will assume the responsibilities of president and CEO for #Phillies.
#Phillies announce that David Montgomery is taking medical leave of absence as he continues to recover from jaw cancer surgery.

Mike Trout has become a different sort of player, but he's still the best. Who's second-best, though? foxsports.com/mlb/just-a-bit…

From last night: How the luxury tax is complicating #Angels’ search for a starting pitcher. foxsports.com/mlb/just-a-bit…
#Reds expected to trade at least one starting pitcher this off-season, when they can negotiate with all teams, not just a claiming club.
Sources: #Reds’ Latos, Leake went on revocable waivers yesterday. Both likely to be claimed, neither figures to be traded.

#Astros’ Qualls claimed on waivers, per source. Unclear whether team would move him. Must be traded, let go or pulled back by Wednesday.
Sources: Both #Mets’ Colon and #Astros’ Feldman cleared waivers. Eligible to be traded to any team.
#Rays’ Maddon has told Y. Escobar that he will not be going to #Athletics on waiver claim, per @TBTimes_Rays. No trade. No letting him go.

#Pirates also expected to activate Barmes from DL this week.
#Pirates expected to recall Tabata to replace Polanco. Tabata 13-for-30 last 8 games. Would be choice over Lambo, who has 4 HRs last 4.
Source: #Pirates send Polanco to AAA. No word yet on corresponding move. Figures to be short-term demotion; rosters expand Monday.
