Insight: It's believed to be a one-year deal though terms of the contract haven't been released yet. Chavez was a trendy pick in fantasy leagues last season after batting .303 in the first half, though he only managed to hit .241 the rest of the way. We'd expect some regression in 2014.

Insight: At best, the injury-prone second baseman will share time with Kelly Johnson. At one time he was a .280 hitter who could produce 100 runs and 30-40 stolen bases, but that was at least five years ago. Today, he's a .250 hitter with no speed or pop. Even if he's healthy, fantasy owners should look elsewhere.
Description: Diamondbacks third base prospect Matt Davidson has been traded to the Chicago White Sox for closer Addison Reed.
Insight: The 22-year-old Davidson could open the season as the White Sox starter at third base. He hot just .237 in 76 at-bats with Arizona, but banged out 17 HR at Triple-A. The last time Chicago had a fantasy quality was 2006 when Joe Crede batted .283 with 30 HR and 94 RBI.
Description: Second baseman Omar Infante is headed to Kansas City. SOURCE: Buster Olney, ESPN
Insight: He signed for four years and about $30 million. The Yankees were also in on him but they only offered Infante three years and $24 million. Infante hit .318 for the Tigers last year but is just a .279 career hitter. Expect him to come back to Earth a little in 2014.
Description: James Loney is staying with the Rays. SOURCE: Ken Rosenthal, Fox Sports
Insight: His new deal will pay him $21 million over the next three seasons. The 29-year-old hit .299 last year with 13 HR and 75 RBI. He's expected to hit third behind Wil Myers and ahead of Evan Longoria.
Description: Infielder Ryan Roberts was signed to a minor league contract by the Chicago Cubs.
Insight: Roberts never got it going in Tampa Bay. His best season came in 2011 when he played full-time in Arizona and batted .249 with 19 HR, 65 RBI, 86 runs scored and 18 stolen bases. Given the talent level in Chicago, he has a chance to make the big club.
Description: Jerry Hairston Jr. is retiring. SOURCE: Bruce Levine, ESPN Chicago
Insight: He's already got a broadcasting gig lined up. Hairston hit .257 over the course of 4,387 major league at bats. He drove in 420 runs while smacking 70 HR. He spent his first several seasons in Baltimore before moving around to Chicago, Texas, Cincinnati, New York, San Diego, Milwaukee, Washington and Los Angeles in the later part of his career. He played every position during his career except catcher.
Description: The Mariners have signed 1B/OF Corey Hart to a one-year contract, according to Jon Heyman of cbssports.com. Ken Rosenthal of foxsports.com reports the deal is for $5 million with $8 million in incentives.
Insight: Hart missed all of 2013 after having knee surgery but he averaged .277/.335/.495 with 24 homers, 78 RBI and 70 runs per season from 2007-12 with the Brewers. He'll serve as a first baseman and designated hitter for Seattle.
Description: The Marlins have traded 1B/OF Logan Morrison to the Mariners for pitcher Carter Capps, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.
Insight: Morrison hit 23 homers and had a .798 OPS in 2011 but has played just 178 games over the last two seasons with 17 homers, 72 RBI and a .708 OPS in that span. He's unlikely to be a strong fantasy option with the M's.
Description: The Marlins and first baseman Garrett Jones have agreed to a two-year, $7.5 million contract.
Insight: The deal became official when Jones passed his physical on Tuesday. He was let go by the Pirates earlier this offseason. Now that Jones (.233, 15 HR, 51 RBI in 2013) is signed, the next move for Miami is to trade Logan Morrison (.242, 6 HR, 36 RBI).
Description: According to Sean McAdam of csnne.com, the Red Sox have re-signed first baseman Mike Napoli to a two-year deal worth $32 million.
Insight: We never expected Napoli to leave the Red Sox after he changed the clubhouse culture, ushered in the bearded brotherhood and brought a World Series title to Boston in his first season. Just remember he'll have significantly less fantasy value in 2014 because he won't be eligible at catcher after playing zero innings there in 2013.
Description: The Marlins have signed Rafael Furcal to a one-year contract.
Insight: Furcal is expected to start at second base. He missed all of 2013 after undergoing Tommy John surgery. In his most recent season, Furcal batted .264 with five homers, 49 RBI, 69 runs and 12 steals in 121 games.
Description: The Mariners and second baseman Robinson Cano have come to terms on a new 10-year, $240 million deal.
Insight: Cano is the crown jewel of this year's free agent class. He's a career .309 hitter with an .860 OPS. Cano won't have a great lineup around him but we're not concerned about it affecting his fantasy value. As far as second basemen go, he's the best there is.
