The Arizona Diamondbacks picked up the $6.5 million contract option of closer J.J. Putz on Saturday, according to MLB.com.

If the team did not pick up the option, Putz would have been owed $1.5 million.

Putz saved 32 games in 37 opportunities this season with a 2.82 ERA.

After a slow start in which Putz had ERAs of 4.70 and 7.71 in April and May, he turned the corner in June with a 2.25 ERA and did not allow a run in July or August.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Oakland Athletics pitchers Dallas Braden and Joey Devine have cleared outright waivers and chosen to become free agents rather than accept assignments to Triple-A Sacramento.

The AL West champion A's made the announcement Tuesday. Both pitchers missed the 2012 season because of injuries that required surgery.

ATLANTA (AP) -- The Braves have exercised options on catcher Brian McCann, right-hander Tim Hudson and left-hander Paul Maholm.

McCann, a six-time All-Star, will earn $12 million next season instead of receiving a $500,000 buyout. McCann had surgery after the season to repair the labrum in his right shoulder that could force him to miss the start of the season. He is expected to return to light baseball activities in about four months and could receive full clearance in April.

McCann hit a career-low .230 with 20 homers.

The 37-year-old Hudson will earn $9 million instead of getting a $1 million buyout. He was 16-7 with a 3.62 ERA.

Maholm, 30, will earn $6.5 million rather than receiving a $500,000 buyout. Atlanta acquired Maholm from the Cubs on July 30, and the left-hander was 13-11 with a 3.67 ERA.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Dodgers are bringing Brandon League back to their bullpen, signing the free agent right-hander to a three-year deal on Tuesday.

League, acquired by the Dodgers from the Seattle Mariners at the July trade deadline, went 2-1 with six saves and a 2.30 ERA in 28 appearances with Los Angeles. He was especially effective over the final 1 1/2 months of the season, posting a 0.55 ERA in 15 appearances in September and October, sixth-lowest in the National League during that stretch.

CHICAGO (AP) -- Pitcher Jake Peavy and the Chicago White Sox agreed Tuesday to a $29 million, two-year contract.

The right-hander will receive $14.5 million in each of the next two seasons. Peavy would receive a $15 million option for 2015, depending on innings during the next two years.
Chicago also exercised a $9.5 million option on right-hander Gavin Floyd, declined a $10 million option on right-hander Brett Myers and turned down a $13 million option on third baseman Kevin Youkilis. Myers gets a $3 million buyout and Youkilis $1 million.

Floyd was 12-11 with a 4.29 ERA and 144 strikeouts in 29 starts last season, his fifth straight year with double-digit wins.

Youkilis helped solidify third base for the White Sox after a trade from Boston in late June and batted .236 with 15 home runs in 80 games for Chicago.

Myers was 3-4 with a 3.12 ERA in 35 relief appearances with Chicago after being acquired from Houston on July 21.

The New York Mets picked up their 2013 contract options on third baseman David Wright and right-hander R.A. Dickey, Fox Sports reported.

The moves were widely expected, and the team likely will continue to negotiate with the two key players in an attempt to keep them beyond next season.

Wright, 29, will make $16 million in 2013, while Dickey, 38, will earn $5 million. Both would become free agents after next season unless they agree to contract extensions.

CBSSports.com recently reported that the Mets were prepared to retain Wright "for life" by offering a contract worth approximately $100 million.

Wright had a strong first half this season before tailing off after the All-Star break. He finished with a .306 average, a .391 on-base percentage, a .492 slugging percentage, 21 homers and 93 RBI in 156 games.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates have picked up the option on third baseman Pedro Alvarez and parted ways with catcher Rod Barajas.

The 25-year-old Alvarez enjoyed a breakout season in 2012, batting .244 with a career-high 30 home runs and 85 RBIs in 149 games. His home run total was 10th best in the National League, though he also led NL third basemen in errors with 27 and finished second in the NL in strikeouts with 180.

Barajas, who signed with the Pirates as a free agent last winter, struggled at the plate and on defense. The 37-year-old hit just .206 with 11 homers and 31 RBI and threw out only six of 99 base stealers.

Pittsburgh also released reliever Hisanori Takahashi, who posted an 8.64 ERA in nine appearances.
