Haren underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder on Wednesday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The procedure was done to deal with slight swelling in his shoulder, though it apparently wasn't serious enough to hold him out from any action during the season. He'll begin the rehab process in a week, and expects to be back to full health for spring training.

Jerome Williams    P   Philadelphia Phillies
Williams signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Phillies on Tuesday, Stephen Gross of the Morning Call reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

A waiver acquisition from the Rangers in August, Williams posted a 2.83 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in nine starts for the Phillies down the stretch to finish the year with a 4.77 ERA and 1.40 WHIP. Despite his struggles throughout much of the season with Houston and Texas, Williams showed enough during his time with Philly to earn a major league deal for 2015, which could earn him as much as $4 million if he hits his incentives for innings pitched.
Jayson Nix    3B   Kansas City Royals
Nix will replace Christian Colon on the Royals' World Series roster, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Nix, who appeared in the Wild Card Game win over Oakland, was not a member of the ALDS or ALCS roster. The 32-year-old hit just .120/.169/.157 in 41 games between Kansas City and Pittsburgh this season, but he'll replace the 25-year-old Colon as an extra veteran on the World Series roster.
Christian Colon    SS   Kansas City Royals
Colon was left off the Royals' World Series roster and replaced by Jayson Nix, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Colon scored the winning run in the AL Wild Card Game and appeared in the ninth inning of Game 2 of the ALCS. However, he'll be left off the roster in favor of the veteran Nix, who was not a member of the ALDS or ALCS roster. Colon hit .333 for the Royals this season but appeared in only 21 games, notching 49 plate appearances. With so much on the line at this point, the Royals are likely more comfortable with an extra veteran in the clubhouse.
Marco Gonzales    P   St. Louis Cardinals
Gonzales could start the season in the Cardinals bullpen in 2015 if he fails to make the starting rotation.

Jon Jay    OF   St. Louis Cardinals
Jay will have his left wrist scoped Wednesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jay's recovery time from the surgery will reportedly last 6-to-8 weeks. With his performance this season, Jay owns the starting spot in center field with Matt Holliday in left and Oscar Taveras and Randal Grichuk set to battle for the starting spot in right field in spring training. Jay should be fine for the start of spring training assuming there are no complications with his surgery or recovery that prevent it.
Adam Wainwright    P   St. Louis Cardinals
Wainwright had his elbow examined Friday but everything came back fine, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
