Some Quick Hits for Friday night..
- The Rangers never made a formal offer to Darren Oliver before the reliever agreed to sign with Toronto, writes Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram. The 41-year-old's deal is for one-year with a club option for 2013.
- The Cubs have made a good deal of moves so far this offseason but they've quietly made major changes to their scouting department as well, writes Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com. The team hired former Red Sox major league scout Kyle Evans to oversee Chicago's revamped video and advance scouting. President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein also plucked amateur scout Matt Dorey from Boston but subsequently agreed not to hire any other BoSox front office personnel until December 2014.
- Yesterday, ESPN.com's Buster Olney suggested that the Red Sox and Nationals could have interest in Cubs outfielder Marlon Byrd. Eric Seidman of Fangraphs believes that Olney was right to link the Nats to the veteran outfielder but argues that the club should be thinking bigger.
- Cuban outfielder Guillermo Aviles is a name to keep in mind down the road, writes Ben Badler of Baseball America. Aviles, 19 in January, stands at 6-foot-1 and scouts say he shows a good deal of promise. The left-handed outfielder remains a resident of Cuba and its not known when or if he might look to make the jump to the Majors.
