The Los Angeles Dodgers avoided arbitration with closer Kenley Jansen by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $4.3 million on Tuesday, a source confirmed.

Jansen, 26, had sought $5.05 million while the Dodgers initially offered $3.5 million. An arbitration hearing was scheduled for Feb. 18.

Jansen was 4-3 with a 1.88 ERA and 28 saves with 111 strikeouts in 76 2/3 innings in 2013, his fourth major league season. He assumed the closer's role from struggling veteran Brandon League in May.

The Dodgers have not had a case reach arbitration since 2007.

The team will enter the 2014 season with one of the most expensive bullpens in baseball history after signing Brian Wilson, Chris Perez, J.P. Howell and Jamey Wright this winter. Dodgers relievers combined will make more than $30 million this season.

HOUSTON (AP) Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan rejoined the Houston Astros on Tuesday as an executive adviser.

Ryan worked as a special assistant to the general manager in Houston from 2004 until he became president of the Texas Rangers in 2008. He added CEO to his title with the Rangers in 2011 and remained in that position until he stepped down in October.

Ryan will serve as an adviser to owner Jim Crane, general manager Jeff Luhnow and his son and president of business operations Reid Ryan.

''I'm very excited to be back with the Astros,'' the elder Ryan said in a statement. ''I'm happy to assist Jim, Jeff and Reid in any way I can. The Astros have a solid foundation with a strong farm system. I think the future is bright for Houston and I'm looking forward to my involvement.''

The Astros have lost more than 100 games in each of the last three seasons, but their minor league system has been ranked among the best in baseball this offseason.

Crane is glad to have Ryan back in Houston after his time with the Rangers.

''We will use his experience, expertise and knowledge to improve the Astros in all areas,'' Crane said. ''He will be an integral part of our management team. Nolan wants to be a part of our success moving forward.''

Ryan, who played for the Astros for nine seasons, is major league baseball's career strikeout leader and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1999.

''Nolan Ryan's experience and insights will help us on the baseball side - both in terms of decision-making and in maximizing the productivity of our players,'' Luhnow said. ''I'm fortunate as a general manager to get advice and guidance from great former players and Astros - Craig Biggio, Roger Clemens and now Nolan Ryan.''

Ryan won 324 games and set records for strikeouts (5,714) and no-hitters (seven) in a 27-year major league career. He signed with the Astros in 1980 and helped them to their first postseason appearance that year and back to the playoffs in 1981 and 1986.

Reid Ryan joined the Astros last season and is looking forward to working with his father.

''The opportunity to work with my father is very special,'' he said. ''He's had success in baseball on many levels and will be a great addition to our organization.''

The team said Nolan Ryan will join the team at spring training in the next few weeks.

For a Phillies season where everything has to go right for the Phillies, they are off to a poor start. The first injury has hit the Phillies already weak starting rotation. According to John Clark of CSN Philly, Cole Hamels will miss Opening Day:

Cole Hamels has discomfort in his shoulder. Shoulder tendinitis. So he is behind in throwing schedule. #PhilliesTalk
— John Clark CSN (@JClarkCSN) February 12, 2014

Cole Hamels probably wont be ready for opening day. He says he is hoping for first week of season. #PhilliesTalk
— John Clark CSN (@JClarkCSN) February 12, 2014

This could explain the Phillies' recent interest in free agent starter A.J. Burnett. The Phillies need a starter now more than ever. The Phillies have only five other starters in camp, with two of them finishing 2013 on the disabled list and one never having thrown a pitch in the major leagues.

Call Burnett now, please.

UPDATE: Clark got a picture of Hamels throwing. It's not off of a mound, but it's a sign that Hamels could be on the rebound.

Heres Cole Hamels long tossing. he's not throwing off mound yet. Wont be ready opening day. #PhilliesTalk pic.twitter.com/5ctGD9HRhZ

The Philadelphia Phillies and pitcher A.J. Burnett reached an agreement Wednesday on a one-year deal worth $16 million, a source confirmed to ESPN.com.

Burnett and the Phillies have to work through some additional details before the deal will be announced, the source said.

The 37-year-old Burnett spent the past two seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates. The right-hander went 10-11 with a 3.30 ERA with team highs of 191 innings pitched and 209 strikeouts last season, helping Pittsburgh reach the postseason.

In October, Burnett told a Pittsburgh radio station that he would return to the Pirates as a free agent this year or retire.

Burnett spent much of the winter mulling over his decision before deciding in late January that he wanted to pitch in 2014.

The Phillies, Pirates and Baltimore Orioles expressed interest before Burnett agreed to terms with Philadelphia.

Burnett will join Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee and Kyle Kendrick in Philadelphia's rotation this season.

Roberto Hernandez, Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez and youngsters Jonathan Pettibone and Ethan Martin are also expected to be in the mix for spots at the Phillies' spring training camp in Clearwater, Fla.

Burnett is 147-132 with a 3.99 ERA over parts of 15 seasons with the Pirates, Yankees, Blue Jays and Marlins.

Giancarlo Stanton is open to the idea of staying in South Florida, provided the Miami Marlins establish "security" in terms of keeping their other talented players.

Stanton, who agreed to a $6.5 million deal last month to avoid arbitration, said in a recent interview with MLB.com that he wants to see the Marlins "going in the right direction" before considering a long-term deal.

"I want some team security as well," Stanton told MLB.com. "I'm very pleased with how things panned out for me. But I would like to see [the team] grow. I have my security somewhat now. I'd like to see a team full of that."

The 24-year-old Stanton, who is eligible to become a free agent after the 2016 season, said he does not expect to talk about an extension until after this upcoming season.

"I don't think I'd like during the season to have to play and deal with that," he told MLB.com.

Stanton has 117 home runs over his four-year career and has been a frequent subject of trade speculation. The All-Star slugger has battled injuries over the last two years and struggled last season, batting a career-low .249 with 24 homers and 62 RBIs.

The Marlins loaded up on high-profile players in 2012, adding Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle to a promising team that already featured Stanton and Hanley Ramirez.

But after struggling in the first half of 2012, the Marlins traded away multiple star players -- including Reyes and Ramirez -- prior to last season, when they went 62-100 en route to their third consecutive last-place finish.

"In order for the team to have security, that doesn't happen in two seconds," Stanton told MLB.com. "That happens over a season or over two seasons. You show me that, and we can get something going."

CLEVELAND (AP) Right-hander Kyle Davies has agreed to a minor league contract with the Cleveland Indians and will report to major league spring training.

The 30-year was 4-3 with a 3.41 ERA in 12 starts last season in the Minnesota Twins' minor league organization after recovering from shoulder surgery.

He was a 43-65 big league record with a 5.59 ERA in 144 starts and seven relief appearances for Atlanta (2005-07) and Kansas City (2007-11).

Davies' agreement was announced Wednesday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) All-Star closer Greg Holland agreed Wednesday with the Royals to a one-year contract worth $4,675,000, the final player to reach a deal among Kansas City's players in arbitration.

Holland had asked for $5.2 million in arbitration last month and the Royals had offered $4.1 million. They settled just over the midpoint rather than allow a three-person panel to pick one figure or the other, something that has never happened since general manager Dayton Moore took over the Royals' baseball operations in 2006.

Holland, who went 2-1 with a 1.21 ERA and a franchise-record 47 saves last season, will also earn a $50,000 bonus if he's selected for his second All-Star game.

Moore said Monday that he was confident a deal would get done with Holland, who was eligible for arbitration for the first time, but that he wasn't against going to a hearing.

''We haven't experienced that since we've been here, but it's not by design,'' Moore said.

Moore also considered it a good sign the Royals had numerous players eligible for arbitration this year. They had previously reached one-year deals with first baseman Eric Hosmer, outfielder Justin Maxwell, catcher Brett Hayes and relief pitchers Tim Collins, Luke Hochevar and Aaron Crow. They also agreed to a deal with Emilio Bonifacio, who has since been waived.

''I think it's a reflection of a player, what they've accomplished at this stage of their career, what kind of leverage they have,'' Moore said. ''Getting a deal prior to a hearing is going to be more challenging going forward as long as we have players excelling and doing well.''

Pitchers and catchers are due to report to Surprise, Ariz., on Friday. The Royals' first full-squad workout is Feb. 20 with their exhibition opener against Texas on Feb. 27.

Holland assumed the closer's role in Kansas City late in 2012, and he flourished last season, unleashing an overpowering fastball on an unsuspecting AL Central. He finished third in the majors in saves, and his strikeout rate of 13.84 per nine innings was among the best in baseball.

While he's under club control through arbitration for two more years, Holland said during a recent interview that he would be open to discussing a long-term deal with Kansas City.

''I love the town. I love the fans,'' he said. ''I'd really take a lot of pride in being here when we took the next step, making the playoffs and eventually winning a championship.''

Holland should once again serve as the bookend to one of the most dominant bullpens in the American League this season. Most of the key pieces are back from a group that went 33-24 with an AL-best 2.55 ERA and held opponents to a .217 batting average last season.

''Greg is obviously one of the best closers in all of baseball,'' Crow said. ''Whatever we have to do to get the ball to him in the ninth inning, we'll do. Doesn't matter whether you pitch the second inning or the eighth inning. We just want to give Greg an opportunity to get a save.''

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Trying to stabilize their bullpen with veteran arms, the New York Mets have signed right-hander Jose Valverde to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Valverde, 35, posted a 5.59 ERA and had nine saves in 12 attempts with the Detroit Tigers last season before ultimately getting released from Triple-A Toledo on Aug. 7.

Valverde went 49-for-49 in save attempts for Detroit in 2011. But the following year he struggled during the playoffs and became a free agent. The Tigers eventually re-signed him to a minor league deal for last season and promoted him in mid-April.

The Mets have brought in Valverde and Kyle Farnsworth on minor league deals as protection with closer Bobby Parnell attempting to return from neck surgery. Set-up man LaTroy Hawkins departed in free agency to the Colorado Rockies.

Parnell has indicated he feels fine, but he is first due to throw off a mound in two weeks. He underwent surgery Sept. 10 to repair the herniated disk.

Derek Jeter will retire after this season.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/2014/02/12/yankees-captain-derek-jeter-to-retire-at-end-of-2014-season/5424023/

Derek Jeter, the New York Yankees shortstop whose star-studded career coincided with the revival of baseball's most iconic franchise, announced that the 2014 season will be his last.

In a post on his Facebook fan page, Jeter, 39, said the 2013 season – in which he played just 17 games due to a broken ankle – " was a tough one for me," and that "some of the things that came easy to me became a struggle."

"So really it was months ago when I realized that this season would likely be my last," Jeter wrote. "As I came to this conclusion and shared it with my friends and family, they all told me to hold off saying anything until I was absolutely 100% sure."

He enters his final season with 3,316 hits, 10th on the all-time list. He was the 1996 American League Rookie of the Year, a season in which the Yankees won the first of five World Series championships with him as their shortstop.

[size=Jeter wrote: "I will remember it all: the cheers, the boos, every win, all the plane trips, the bus rides, the clubhouses, the walks through the tunnel and every drive to and from the Bronx."]

Jeter's final game, barring a Yankees playoff appearance, will come on Sept. 28 at Fenway Park. His final game at Yankee Stadium will be Sept. 25, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Save for a freak shoulder injury suffered in a 2003 baserunning collision, Jeter was a remarkably durable player throughout his career. But the beginning of the end came on Oct. 13, 2012, when he fractured his ankle during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers.

The injury required off-season surgery, and while Jeter returned during spring training, he suffered another ankle fracture, delaying his 2013 debut until July 11. A quadriceps injury, however, put him back on the disabled list after just one game, and he did not play again after Sept. 7.

Derek Jeter's announcement Wednesday that he will retire after the upcoming season turned out to be a boon for fans and brokers of the New York Yankees' rivals, the Boston Red Sox.

In an ironic twist, the Yankees' season-ending series in Boston (Sept. 26-28) will now be the shortstop's final regular-season games.

Within minutes of the announcement, which was posted to Jeter's Facebook page, ticket prices soared on the web.

"This last Jeter game is now a tougher ticket than the Opening Day ring ceremony," Jim Holzman, CEO and president of Boston-based Ace Ticket, said. "Now that's a story."

Ticket aggregator TiqIQ said that the cheapest seat for the finale at around 2 p.m. ET, before Jeter's announcement was posted, was $26. An hour later, the site didn't have anything for less than $200.

As of 5:30 p.m., the average ticket price for Jeter's last game was $1,153.01, up 278.2 percent from 2 p.m.

"People bought what they could buy," said Chris Matcovich, TiqIQ's vice president for data. "And then brokers started pulling their tickets so as not to sell their seats too cheaply."

Matcovich said the company, which was founded in 2009, had never seen an immediate reaction in the sports-ticketing market like this.

Holzman said Ace Ticket, the largest broker in town, saw the huge uptick.

"The final series against the Yankees was too far away to think about this morning," said Holzman, who has been in business since 1979. "Not now. We're seeing action from people in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York."

Holzman said most Red Sox fans were buying tickets just to get into the park, while Yankees fans have called his brokerage looking for special seats, like ones behind the Yankees' dugout.

With Jeter's announcement, Ace raised the prices for a bleacher seat from $129 to $249. A field-box seat jumped from $275 to $349.

The cheapest seat to Opening Day through Ace Ticket is a bleacher seat for $195.

The most expensive seats for the final Jeter game on Sept. 28 at Fenway are $790. Those seats are along the visiting dugout. These seats, Holzman said were selling for $390 on Wednesday morning.

"We have this major rivalry, but there's a lot of respect for a guy like Derek Jeter," Holzman said. "People want to be there for this."

Holzman said he expected interest to steadily rise throughout the day.

"Oh, it's just starting," he said. "Wait until people get home and hear it on the news and realize his last game is at Fenway."

PEORIA, Ariz. -- Seattle Mariners pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma will not throw for four to six weeks because of an injury to the middle finger on his right hand.

Iwakuma reported for his physical Wednesday at the Mariners' spring training headquarters and has a splint over the finger. He's been diagnosed with a strained tendon and will be re-examined by a hand specialist in Arizona in three weeks.

The injury isn't expected to require surgery.

Iwakuma said he caught his finger as he tried to retrieve a ball from some netting while working out in Southern California on Jan. 20.

Iwakuma went 14-6 with a 2.66 ERA and 185 strikeouts in 2013.

Former major league manager Jim Fregosi suffered a stroke while on a Major League Baseball alumni cruise and has been hospitalized in the Cayman Islands, sources close to Fregosi said Wednesday.

Fregosi's family currently is trying to make arrangements to fly him to Miami.

Fregosi, 71, currently serves as a special assistant to Atlanta Braves general manager Frank Wren. He managed 15 years in the majors with the California Angels, Chicago White Sox, Philadelphia Phillies and Toronto Blue Jays.

Fregosi's 1993 Phillies produced a 97-65 record and won the National League pennant.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Hanley Ramirez arrived Wednesday at the Los Angeles Dodgers' spring camp with his injuries healed, yet still feeling disappointed with the way last season ended with a loss to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS.

''Yeah, even right now,'' Ramirez said. ''But what are you going to do? Now, it's just time to get ready. It's 2014 now. I think I'm with a group of guys that want to win and go through the whole situation again.''

But it's a situation that Ramirez hopes will include a different ending.

''A championship,'' the shortstop said. ''That's the one goal.''

The World Series eluded the Dodgers last year after Ramirez suffered a rib fracture when he was struck by a fastball from Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly in Game 1. He attempted to play with the injury but was never a factor throughout the rest of the series, which the Cardinals won in six games.

His importance to the Dodgers offense was never more apparent than in their National League Division Series victory over the Atlanta Braves. He had eight hits in 16 at-bats. He tied a Dodgers postseason record with six hits for extra bases.

''If Hanley had been healthy, it would have changed everything,'' said Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, who also reported Wednesday. ''It was one of the keys to us losing the series.''

Ramirez arrived in camp one day before the Dodgers reporting date amid speculation about his contract. He is entering the final year of his deal. He did not want to talk about a possible extension.

''That will take care of itself,'' he said. ''There's nothing I can do about it right now. I want to be a Dodger for life. I just want to keep winning. That's what we get paid for.''

Potential free agency makes it even more important for Ramirez to stay healthy, said Dodgers manager Don Mattingly.

''It's a big year for Hanley,'' Mattingly said. ''It's his last year. He's going to want to stay out on the field.''

The 30-year-old Ramirez began last season sidelined with a thumb injury suffered while playing for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic. He joined the lineup on April 29 but suffered a hamstring injury after just his third game. Without him, the Dodgers stumbled out of the gate, falling into last place in the NL West.

After he got back, he and rookie Yasiel Puig helped ignite a 46-10 run from mid-June to mid-August. The Dodgers went from last to first. In 86 games, Ramirez hit .345 with 20 home runs and 57 RBIs.

Ramirez said he spent the offseason healing, undergoing treatment on his back. It is believed a nerve in the back caused the hamstring injury.

Mattingly said the Dodgers will monitor Ramirez's conditioning and make sure he gets enough rest.

''He's not ancient, but he's not 20 anymore,'' Mattingly said. ''We'll break it up a little more. With Hanley, we'll take whatever we can get. We want to keep him healthy.''

Note: Matt Kemp is in camp, but with no timetable for a comeback from an ankle injury. ''There's no true schedule until the ankle is healed,'' Mattingly said.

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) Jesus Montero was visibly nervous Wednesday as he apologized to his Seattle Mariners teammates and their fans.

The catcher-turned-first baseman was joining the team at spring training for the first time since receiving a 50-game suspension after being connected to baseball's Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug investigation.

''I want to apologize to the whole organization and all my teammates for what I did last year,'' Montero said, his voice tinged with emotion. ''I know I made a bad mistake last year and I don't know what I was thinking. But I'm here right now this year to be better and to help the team to win.''

Montero is coming off a rough 2013. The catcher was a prized acquisition via trade with the New York Yankees in 2012 but struggled last year with his hitting and defense and was sent down to Triple-A Tacoma, where he was moved to first base. Then came a torn meniscus that required season-ending knee surgery and the suspension.

''This was the first time that happened to me. I had six good years in the minor leagues and one good year in the big leagues,'' Montero said. ''Then this happened and it was hard for me and my family. But thank God it's in the past already and I'm here to move forward and here to be better every day.''

Montero, 24, is on the Mariners' 40-man roster but is not guaranteed a spot on the major-league roster going into this season. He said his knee feels much better, but he'll have work to do to make the big-league club, or potentially start the year in the minors.

Before his statement, several teammates approached Montero in the clubhouse to greet him and welcome him back.

''I have to prove to myself, first of all, that I want to be in the big leagues,'' he said, pledging to continue to learn to play first base and play wherever the organization wants him. ''My teammates, they're really important to me. I want them to be comfortable with me. I don't want them to be mad or be upset. I want everybody to know I'm a good person.''

NOTES: Former Tampa Bay Rays closer Fernando Rodney was in the clubhouse Tuesday morning awaiting a physical. He remained officially unsigned pending the results and had yet to be listed on the team's spring training roster. . Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik, team President Kevin Mather and infielder Robinson Cano are in the Dominican Republic for Thursday's opening of the club's baseball academy there. The academy sits on 24 acres in the town of Boca Chica.
