Player Notes
Indians signed RHP Tommy Hunter to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Advice: Hunter's ERA was up last season at 4.18, but he had a sub-3.00 mark each of the previous two campaigns after a full-time move to the bullpen. The 29-year-old is recovering from core muscle surgery but should be ready to go by the time Opening Day rolls around.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays are having "advanced" talks with free agent reliever Tommy Hunter.

Advice: Topkin adds that a deal doesn't appear close and that Hunter is talking with other teams. The 29-year-old posted a 4.18 ERA over 58 appearances last season between the Orioles and Cubs and is coming off core muscle surgery, but he's arguably the best free agent reliever left on the board.

Free agent RHP Tommy Hunter is rehabbing from core muscle surgery.

Advice: It's unclear how far along he is in the recovery process, but the surgery is probably what has kept teams from pursuing Hunter this offseason. The right-hander had a rough year in 2015 but he can still bring the heat (his fastball averaged 96.2 mph last year) and has shown to be a capable late-inning arm throughout his career. Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times previously reported Hunter could be a possibility for the Rays.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times mentioned free agents Tommy Hunter, Burke Badenhop and Ryan Webb as "legit possibilities" for the Rays.

Advice: Tampa Bay is looking to beef up its bullpen after trading Jake McGee to Colorado last week. The Rays have also been linked to Tyler Clippard though he might be out of their price range. Hunter is coming off a disappointing season (4.18 ERA in 58 appearances) but has been a solid late-inning and middle relief option throughout his career. The hard-throwing right-hander is reportedly holding out for a two-year deal.
