The Phillies are promoting Chris Young to pitching coach in place of Rick Kranitz, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

Young, who just retired as an active pitcher after the 2017 season was hired as an assistant at the same time that Kranitz was brought in a year ago. It sounds like the Phillies wanted to continue with that arrangement, but multiple teams were interested in Young and the Phillies decided it was more important to keep him around than it was Kranitz. Kranitz remains under contract, but Rosenthal says he'll be allowed to interview elsewhere.

Dodgers signed RHP Kevin Quackenbush to a minor league contract.

Dodgers fans are likely familiar with Quackebush from all of his stints in the Padres pen. Quackenbush was chosen for the Reds' Opening Day roster last season, but he was sent down after giving up 11 runs in nine innings and never returned. He ended up with a 2.68 ERA and 25 saves as Triple-A Louisville's closer. He should be a Triple-A guy again next year.

Mike Elias will be named the Orioles' new general manager, the Houston Chronicle's Chandler Rome confirms.

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand is also on it. Elias is leaving his job as an assistant GM for the Astros, continuing the mass exodus they've seen from their front office. Sig Mejdal is another who left and is expected to join Elias in Baltimore, according to Feinsand.

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 some form of an agreement 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 before that. 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 an impressive 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 league 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.
