According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Astros assistant GM Mike Elias will be the new general manager of the Orioles "barring a change of heart."

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com named Elias as one of the top candidates for the job last week, and it sounds like there is an official offer in place. Elias has been serving as the Astros' assistant general manager since August 2016, when David Stearns left for the Brewers. He had previously served as Houston's scouting director, and as a scout for the Cardinals under Jeff Luhnow. The 35-year-old is a graduate of Yale University, where he was a left-handed pitcher on the baseball team all four years.

Rays signed LHP Ryan Merritt to a minor league contract.

Merritt spent the entire 2018 season at Triple-A Columbus, where he posted a 3.79 ERA, 1.178 WHIP, and 52/2 K/BB ratio in 13 starts and two relief appearances covering 71 1/3 innings. The 26-year-old southpaw's elite control could lead him back to the majors with the Rays in 2019. He put up a 1.71 ERA in 31 2/3 innings with the Indians between 2016-2017.

Red Sox signed C Juan Centeno to a minor league contract.

Centeno appeared in just 10 games at the major league level in 2018, batting .162/.184/.270 over 38 plate appearances with the Rangers. The 28-year-old will be nothing more than minor league catching depth for the Red Sox.

Diamondbacks signed OF Abraham Almonte to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Almonte will be in camp with the Diamondbacks next spring, but he'll probably open the 2019 season with the Triple-A Reno Aces, who broke the news of this signing on Twitter. The 29-year-old outfielder was released by the Royals in July and failed to latch on with a new team. He holds an ugly .209/.291/.330 batting line over his last 346 major league plate appearances.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin has been named the 2018 American League Manager of the Year.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora and Rays manager Kevin Cash both had strong cases, but Melvin was the obvious choice here. He led a club with the lowest Opening Day payroll to a 97-65 regular-season record, fourth-best among all major leagues teams and a 22-win improvement over the previous year. Melvin, who also won NL Manager of the Year in 2007 and AL Manager of the Year in 2012, inked a multi-year contract extension with the A's late last month.

Braves manager Brian Snitker has been named the 2018 National League Manager of the Year.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell and Rockies manager Bud Black were the other two finalists. Snitker took home the hardware with 17 of the 30 first-place votes after guiding the upstart Braves to 90 regular-season wins and their first postseason appearance since 2013. The National League East champs spent 115 days in first place and didn't have a losing streak longer than four games.

Royals signed RHP Michael Ynoa to a minor league contract.

Ynoa did not play MLB-affiliated ball in 2018 after getting released by the White Sox in mid-March, but he has pitched well in the Dominican Winter League this offseason. The former top prospect will act as organizational pitching depth for Kansas City leading into the 2019 season. He turned 27 years old in September.

According to Jerry Crasnick, former major league reliever Mark Lowe is looking to make a comeback.

Lowe didn't pitch professionally this season after failing to make the Dodgers out of spring training. Now 35 years old, he hasn't pitched in the majors since putting up an ugly 7.11 ERA in 54 appearances with the Tigers in 2016. He's willing to accept a spring training invite or perhaps accept an opportunity overseas in order to pitch again.
