Jon Heyman of MLB Network confirms that Dusty Baker will be the next manager of the Astros.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale first reported Tuesday morning that Baker was the Astros' choice to replace A.J. Hinch, but there have been follow-up reports from other outlets explaining that it is not fully across the finish line. Heyman writes that "Houston is hoping to finalize something [on Wednesday]." The two sides are apparently still hammering out a contract and deciding on one or more coaching positions. Look for an official announcement within the next 12-24 hours from the reigning American League champions.

According to Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com, the Red Sox are "believed to have interest" in Mark Kotsay for their managerial opening.

Cotillo notes that it is unclear whether Kotsay has interviewed yet for the job. The 44-year-old former major league outfielder has served as the Athletics' quality control coach since 2017, after stints as the bench coach in Oakland and as the hitting coach of the Padres. He played in Boston in 2008 and 2009. With about two weeks to go until the start of spring training, the Red Sox do not have a replacement for former manager Alex Cora.

Tony Barnette has retired from baseball.

Barnette announced the news via his personal Instagram page on Tuesday evening. "Being a ballplayer has been an honor," he wrote. "I’ve thrown my last pitch." The 36-year-old right-hander worked in relief for the Rangers and Cubs during a four-year major league career, posting a 3.53 ERA and 132 strikeouts in 145 1/3 total innings between 2016-2019. He also spent six seasons in between between 2010-2015.

Luis Urias underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair a fractured left hamate bone and is expected to be sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks.

Urias suffered the hand/wrist injury while playing winter ball in Mexico and is now very much in danger of missing the start of the 2020 regular season. The talented 22-year-old infielder was acquired from the Padres in November as part of the Trent Grisham trade and had been expected to open as the Brewers' primary shortstop. Orlando Arcia may get another chance now after his mostly disappointing showing in 2018-2019.

Royals signed RHP Greg Holland to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Holland had a ton of success in Kansas City between between 2011-2015, posting a 2.15 ERA across 301 innings while earning 145 saves, but he has struggled mightily over the last two years for three different teams and returns on a non-guaranteed deal for 2020. The 34-year-old reliever will really have to turn it around in order to carve out a meaningful high-leverage role, even with the Royals currently stuck in rebuilding mode.
Jan 28 - 8:55 PM

Orioles signed LHP Wade LeBlanc to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Baltimore isn't an ideal place for any pitcher, but it probably presents the clearest possible path to LeBlanc landing an Opening Day rotation spot at this point. The veteran left-hander registered an ugly 5.71 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 92/31 K/BB ratio over 121 1/3 innings (eight starts, 18 relief appearances) last season for the Mariners, who declined their $5 million club option on him back in late October. He stands to make an $800,000 salary in 2020 if he is able to stick on the Orioles' major league roster.
