Good morning baseball fans!

Milwaukee signed Franklin Morales to a minor league deal Friday and there is a good chance he makes the major league roster:

Morales, 30, will join Will Smith as left-handers in the Brewers' bullpen mix, providing the team with a middle relief option with Smith slated to be the closer. Milwaukee was thought to be looking for a veteran southpaw all winter, so Morales should have a good chance at cracking the team's major-league roster after spring training.

The Rockies signed Ryan Raburn, who will have a good chance to join the club's bench.

Jose Bautista and the Blue Jays appear to be at war:

Bautista has undoubtedly been fantastic for Toronto over the last six years, but that's a bold stance to take. While an extension might have been possible at one point in time, if Bautista won't budge from the demands that he's submitted, a resolution doesn't seem likely.

Outfielder Felix Perez is joining the Orioles:

Kameron Loe agreed to a minor league deal with the White Sox:

Maicer Izturis announced his retirement Friday.

Jimmy Paredes has a bone bruise in his wrist:

Cameron Maybin will be out for four to six weeks after breaking his wrist.

Carter Capps has a Monday visit with Dr. James Andrews.

Brett Anderson will be out for three to five months after undergoing back surgery.
