Tampa Bay added a key member to its outfield, acquiring Corey Dickerson from the Rockies on Thursday.
Doug Fister received a one-year deal to pitch for the Astros:
Fister struggled to a 4.19 ERA in 29 appearances (19 starts) with Washington last season, but has been a model of consistency in seven major-league seasons with the Mariners(2009-11), Tigers (2011-13) and Nationals (2014-15). He will hope to bounce back with a strong season for the Astros and test a weak free-agent starting pitching market next winter.
The Mets have placed Carlos Torres on waivers.
Ian Kennedy will receive additional money from the Royals if he opts out after 2017:
