We'll keep tabs on any minor moves throughout the day right here ...
- The Marlins have outrighted righties Steve Ames and Jose Ceda, as well as first baseman Joe Mahoney and shortstop Gil Velazquez, to their Triple-A affiliate, the official MLB transactions page shows. Ames, 25, came to Miami in the Ricky Nolasco trade. He tallied just four innings for the Marlins in 2013, posting a 4.50 ERA. Ceda, 26, hasn't appeared in the majors since 2011. Mahoney (age 26) was given 29 plate appearances and Velazquez (age 33) got just one.
- After being outrighted off of the Yankees 40-man roster yesterday, Mike Zagurski has elected to become a free agent, reports Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger. Though Zagurski was headed for a non-tender anyway, the move will clear roster space immediately and give the lefty a head start on finding a new home.
- Catcher Taylor Teagarden and reliever Jairo Asencio have both elected to become free agents rather than remain under control of the Orioles, reports Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun. The pair became eligible for free agency as Class XX(D) free agents, according to Encina, making it possible for them to technically reach free agency now rather than waiting until after the World Series. Teagarden, who turns 30 this winter, saw his meager career batting line dwindle to a personal-low slash of .167/.180/.300 in just 62 MLB plate appearances in 2013. Meanwhile, Asencio was hit hard in four appearances with the big squad, but performed well in Triple-A during his age-30 season. He posted a 2.66 ERA over 50 2/3 innings and registered 9.9 K/9 against 2.5 BB/9 while picking up 28 saves for Norfolk.
- As can be seen in MLBTR's DFA Tracker, Clay Rapada of the Indians and Victor Marte of the Cardinals remain in DFA limbo.
