The Royals have swapped right-hander Aaron Crow to the Marlins for southpaw Brian Flynn, according to Fox Sports Insider Ken Rosenthal.

Crow, who had been pitching for Kansas City since 2010, struggled at times in 2014 despite a 6-1 record. His 4.12 ERA was nearly a point higher than what he compiled the previous year. Flynn has pitched in just six major league games over the past two seasons.

Josh Willingham opts to retire after 11 seasons in the majors
by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Veteran outfielder Josh Willingham told ESPN on Monday he is retiring after 11 seasons in the majors. Willingham added he received a substantial offer from a contending club this offseason, but he still opted to retire.

"After praying on my decision many times and talking to my wife, my father and ex-players who have gone through the same process toward the end of their careers, I have decided to retire,'' Willingham said. "I felt like it wouldn't be fair to myself, and more importantly to the team that was paying me a lot of money to perform at a high level, if there was a chance my dedication would waver -- particularly as the season got longer. I'm honored to have played for as many years as I have, and I feel even luckier to walk away on my own terms instead of having the decision made for me.''

Willingham spent the 2014 season with the Twins and Royals. He also played for the Marlins, Nationals and Athletics in his career. Willingham hit .253 with 195 home runs, 216 doubles and 632 RBI in 1,147 games. Willingham was one of three AL outfielders in 2012 to win the Silver Slugger award.
