NEW YORK (AP) -- Reliever Rafael Soriano opted out of the final year of a three-year, $35 million contract with the New York Yankees on Wednesday and will likely seek a long-term deal in free agency.

The move was expected after the right-hander had 42 saves and a 2.26 ERA while filling in for closer Mariano Rivera this season after baseball's saves leader tore a knee ligament in early May.

Former major league catcher Mike Redmond has been hired as manager of the Miami Marlins to replace Ozzie Guillen, who was fired last week.




The Marlins announced the hiring Thursday, stating that Redmond signed a three-year contract, and planned to hold a news conference Friday.




Redmond spent the past two years managing Class A teams in the Toronto Blue Jays' system.

Redmond was a career .287 hitter over 13 major league seasons. He played seven years (1998-2004) for the Marlins and helped them win the World Series in 2003. He caught 446 games with the Marlins, second in franchise history to Charles Johnson's 582, and had seven-year numbers of .284, 11 home runs and 132 RBIs.




Former major league managers Larry Bowa and Lloyd McClendon and Cincinnati Reds pitching coach Bryan Price also interviewed for the job. Because of his ties to owner Jeffrey Loria and president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest, Redmond was considered the front-runner for the job.

Redmond becomes the Marlins' fifth manager since early 2010.

He hit the jackpot with Rivera's injury.  He came through so he deserves it, but a good season as a set-up man vs. a good season as a closer will mean an extra few million for him.  He was already making closer money too because the Yankees overpaid for him, but now other teams can't push back on him and say he hasn't closed in several years.

Soriano is as good as gone unless Mo announces his retirement very soon.

HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Astros have declined their $4 million mutual option on catcher Chris Snyder.

The 31-year-old, who gets a $500,000 buyout, played 76 games for Houston in 2012 and hit .176 with seven homers and 24 RBIs.

He batted .271 with three homers and 17 RBIs in 34 games for Pittsburgh before season-ending surgery on his lower back in June 2011.

Snyder played for Arizona from 2004 until joining the Pirates in 2010. He has 77 homers, 297 RBIs and a .225 average in his big league career.

ATLANTA (AP) -- The Braves re-acquired outfielder Jordan Schafer on Thursday by claiming him off waivers from the Houston Astros.

Schafer, who hit 211 with 27 stolen bases in 106 games for the Astros last season, spent 6 1/2 years in the Braves' organization before getting dealt to Houston in July 2011.

He was part of the trade that brought center fielder and leadoff hitter Michael Bourn to Atlanta before the 2011 trade deadline.

Bourn, who stole 42 bases for the Braves last year, is expected to draw considerable interest from other teams as a free agent,

Atlanta is not exercising a $7 million option on third baseman Chipper Jones, who retired after Atlanta lost to St. Louis in a wild-card game.

The Braves also said catcher J.C. Boscan and pitchers Erik Cordier and Robert Fish were sent outright to the minors and that Boscan refused the assignment and elected free agency.

DENVER (AP) -- Lefty Jorge De La Rosa has exercised his $11 million player option for 2013, the final year in a three-year, $33 million contract.

Elbow surgery sidelined him for much of the last two seasons, but De La Rosa is a big part of the Rockies' plans to rebuild the worst rotation in team history.

After winning 16 games in 2010, De La Rosa was the Rockies' ace in 2011 before tearing an elbow ligament May 24. He wanted to return early last season but suffered a setback when his elbow stiffened up during his rehab last summer.

He ended up making three September starts, hitting 94 mph with his fastball but he was rusty, posting a 9.28 ERA in 10 2-3 innings.

Tampa Bay picked up the 2013 option on Fernando Rodney. The 2012 All-Star was simply sensational this season in converting 48 of 49 saves with a microscopic 0.60 ERA and 0.77 WHIP. In fact, Rodney's ERA was the lowest for a regular closer in baseball history and makes him a strong contender for the forthcoming Cy Young Award.

Schafer was suppose to be a good player , but eventually just became a bust.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Baltimore Orioles shortstop Ryan Adams has been suspended for the first 25 games of next season after testing positive for a banned amphetamine.

The 25-year-old, an All-Star two years ago in the Double-A Eastern League, has never played in a big league game but was on the 40-man roster at the time of the test. He was assigned outright on Sept. 14 to Triple-A Norfolk, where he hit .224 with 18 doubles, four homers and 20 RBIs in 65 games this year.

Since Neifi Perez was suspended twice and Mike Cameron once for banned stimulants in 2007, the only major league player other than Adams penalized for a stimulant violation was Milwaukee pitcher Mark Rogers in August 2011.

Adams' suspension was announced Friday.
