D-backs: Arizona is in the market to improve its bullpen more after acquiring Fernando Rodney, and it would also like to find a left-handed bat to provide thump off the bench. More >

Dodgers: The Dodgers remain focused on bringing closer Kenley Jansen and/or third baseman Justin Turner back to Los Angeles. If they can't, they'll explore other ways to fill those positions. More >

Giants: Their roster mostly complete and holes mostly filled, the Giants have less to do than most before Opening Day. They could target another outfielder, though. More >

Indians: The Indians are targeting a middle-of-the-order hitter to play first base and replace Mike Napoli -- unless they re-sign him for the role. They could also look for an outfielder. More >

Mariners: The search for pitching depth never ends. Seattle will target another veteran starter to battle Nathan Karns, Chris Heston and Ariel Miranda for a back-end rotation spot. More >

Mets: Trading Jay Bruce and adding a reliever, possibly in the same deal, remains New York's highest priority. More >

Orioles: Baltimore still wants to add an outfielder, preferably one with high on-base skills. More >

Padres: San Diego still has a ton of roster construction to do after being very aggressive at the non-tender deadline. Three-fifths of the starting rotation must still be filled. More >

Phillies: Philadelphia is looking for versatility, preferably someone who can play at least three infield positions. The Phillies would also like to add an extra outfielder with similar positional flexibility. More >

Rangers: Texas needs a first baseman with Mitch Moreland off to Boston, and it could add a middle-of-the-rotation starter as well. More >

Red Sox: Now that Boston has a glut of starting pitching, look for the Sox to move one in an effort to restock its farm system a bit. More >

Reds: Cincinnati didn't get any deals done this week, but historically, that hasn't stopped the organization from doing so in the weeks following the Winter Meetings. Look for the Reds to continue shopping veterans Zack Cozart and Brandon Phillips to clear playing time for prospects. More >

Rockies: Colorado needs bullpen help now more than ever, with its dynamic lineup even more improved after the acquisition of Ian Desmond. Desmond could play first base or the Rockies could sign a traditional first baseman and send Desmond back to the outfield. More >

Tigers: Detroit needs a center fielder and backup catcher, and it is believed to have the pieces to acquire both. More >

Twins: Pitching, pitching, pitching. Both starters and relievers. It's true for every team, but especially Minnesota. More >
