ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Diamondbacks have signed Jarrod Dyson to a two-year contract.

Crasnick says Dyson has already completed his physical and Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that the contract is worth $7.5 million. It's unclear at this point whether Dyson will play left or center field or if he'll just be an active fourth outfielder. Either way, this isn't good news for Yasmany Tomas. Dyson batted .251/.324/.350 with five home runs, 30 RBI and 28 steals for the Mariners last season.

MLB.com's AJ Cassavell reports that there's been "buzz" in Padres camp around Matt Strahm (knee), who has "looked very sharp" in bullpen sessions.

Strahm came over from the Royals last July in the deal that sent Trevor Cahill, Brandon Maurer and Ryan Buchter to Kansas City. He had surgery just before the trade to repair a torn patellar tendon in his left knee, but it sounds like he's made a full recovery and isn't under any restrictions this spring. The 26-year-old left-hander should compete for a spot in the Padres' rotation and could have some fantasy upside if he wins a spot.

Mariners top prospect Kyle Lewis recently underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

That he "only" required a scope on his knee this time is the good news, but it's the same knee that necessitated ACL surgery earlier in his career. The 2016 first-round pick has been limited to just 79 games so far in his pro career due to injury. The Mariners are hopeful Lewis will be ready to play by late April.

ESPN's Pedro Gomez reports that a deal between the Red Sox and J.D. Martinez is "done."

It's a five-year, $110 million contract with opt outs after the second and third years of the deal. The deal is front-loaded, as Martinez will make $50 million in the first two years and $72 million in the first three, per Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston. Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports was first to report that there was momentum for a deal between the two sides. The Red Sox and Martinez seemed destined to wind up together even as it took much longer than expected. He will serve as Boston's designated hitter, pushing Hanley Ramirez to first base.

Giants designated RHP Joan Gregorio for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Tony Watson. Gregorio held a 3.04 ERA and 61/35 K/BB ratio over 74 innings at Triple-A Sacramento last year before getting popped with a PED suspension.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Eric Hosmer is at the Padres' spring training complex Monday in order to take his physical.

Assuming there aren't any red flags in the results, the Padres will make the contract with their new first baseman official and introduce Hosmer at a press conference Tuesday. Hosmer will make $105 million in the first five years of the deal ($5 million of that is a signing bonus) and $39 million in the three years after that if he doesn't exercise his opt-out.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Red Sox and J.D. Martinez are "moving close to a deal."

Heyman cautions that the contract isn't done yet, but it sounds like there is momentum. The particulars of the possible deal aren't known, but it's been reported previously that the Red Sox had been offering a five-year pact in the $100-125 million range. Martinez would serve as Boston's designated hitter, pushing Hanley Ramirez to first base.

Ervin Santana will wear a cast on his right hand for two weeks before being reevaluated.

Santana underwent surgery earlier this month to remove a calcium deposit from his right middle finger. He'll have a better idea about when he'll be able to resume throwing after having the cast removed, but the early estimates have him potentially missing the first month of the season. The Twins have added Jake Odorizzi and Anibal Sanchez in recent days, but they could still use more rotation help as they aim to build off their surprising 2017 showing.
