The Washington Nationals are interested in free-agent starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel, but they are wary of giving him the five- or six-year deal that he's looking for, according to a source familiar with the team's thinking.

The St. Louis Cardinals may decide to use pitching prospect Alex Reyes in a high-leverage bullpen role in order to protect his innings. Their long-time top prospect has been limited to four innings in the majors the last two years due to elbow and shoulder surgeries, and St. Louis expects him to be close to... Read More

For Cleveland fans, last year was an odd viewing experience, as for the first time in eight years Carlos Santana was not suiting up for the team. Well, those days are over, as Santana is returning to the corner of Carnegie and Ontario as part of a three-team deal. At the time of writing, Carlos... Read More

The latest free agent pitcher to find a new home is former Houston Astros starter Charlie Morton, who signed a two-year deal on Wednesday to take his talents to Tampa Bay.

MLB Winter Meetings are ending in Las Vegas, Nevada and the headline-grabbing moves have come from relatively unknown places. Players like Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, J.T.

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has already met with the representatives for free-agent relief pitcher Andrew Miller.

The southpaw... Read More

Free-agent catcher Wilson Ramos is the Los Angeles Angels "primary target" right now, according to a source. Ramos is attracting plenty of interest from other teams as well, as he is one of the better hitting backstop options in baseball aside from his injury concerns. Ramos hit .306/.358/.487 with 15 home runs and 70 RBI... Read More

Jon Gray Of Interest To Teams

Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Jon Gray, who had a bad and unlucky 2018 campaign, was a popular request in trade talks at the winter meetings this week, according to multiple baseball sources with knowledge of the team's trade talks. Teams were also receptive to discussing first baseman/outfielder Ian Desmond, who is guaranteed $40 million. The... Read More

Free-agent second basemen Daniel Murphy and Neil Walker and free-agent first baseman Logan Morrison are on the radar of the Colorado Rockies. However, the Rockies wouldn't want more than a short-term deal with any of them so it doesn't alter their plan to give increased playing time to left-handed hitting Ryan McMahon. McMahon played mostly... Read More

The Colorado Rockies have "discussed" Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak as a possible trade target. Smoak is a switch-hitting power first baseman that would look really attractive to fantasy owners in the thin air at Coors Field. The 32-year-old hit .242/.350/.457 with 25 home runs and 77 RBI in 147 games in 2018... Read More

The San Diego Padres are discussing a potential trade for Texas Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar, but no deal is imminent, according to sources.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been in touch with the Pittsburgh Pirates about trading for catcher Francisco Cervelli and view free-agent Nick Hundley as a fallback option. Cervelli had a career-high 12 home runs while hitting .259/.378/.431 with 57 RBI for the Bucs in 2018. However, he played in just 104 games and has been... Read More

The Los Angeles Dodgers checked in on free-agent catcher Wilson Ramos on a one-year deal, but he is seeking more years, according to a source. Despite injury issues in his career, Ramos is one of the better hitting catchers in baseball and is very attractive on the open market. He'll certainly be relevant in single-catcher... Read More

Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto's trade suitors are essentially down to the Reds, Mets, Rays, Braves, Dodgers and Padres. With the winter meetings ending on Thursday, no trade is expected to go down on Thursday. The Mets haven't been able to work out a potential three-team blockbuster for Realmuto, but it's not out of the... Read More

San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey (hip) is expected to resume running at full speed in mid-January. Posey had surgery in August to fix a labrum tear in his right hip.

The Arizona Diamondbacks feel they'll get a better return for starting pitcher Zack Greinke in a trade if they wait until the deadline over the summer. Greinke has a lot of money left on his current deal and also carries a no-trade clause. Teams will likely be more desperate to take on Greinke and his... Read More

The Seattle Mariners will send recently acquired designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion to the Tampa Bay Rays in a separate deal, according to sources. It's unclear what the return for Seattle will be.

The Tampa Bay Rays acquired infielder Yandy Diaz from the Cleveland Indians on Thursday in exchange for first baseman Jake Bauers in a three-team deal that also included the Mariners.

The Seattle Mariners will acquire designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion and a compensatory Round B selection from the Cleveland Indians on Thursday in exchange for first baseman Carlos Santana in a three-team deal also involving the Rays. E5 can also play some first base, but he'll likely serve mostly as a DH in Seattle. He'll turn 36... Read More

Read More

The Baltimore Orioles have made it known that they would trade starting pitcher Alex Cobb in the right deal. He has three years and $43 million left on his deal, however, so the O's would probably have to eat some of the money left. The 31-year-old right-hander was 5-10 with a 4.90 ERA, 1.41 WHIP... Read More

The Chicago White Sox are pursuing free-agent relief pitcher Jeurys Familia, according to a source.

Familia had a solid season in 2018, posting a... Read More

The New York Mets had preliminary contract-extension talks with starting pitcher Jacob deGrom's agents this week. It's unlikely that anything happens soon, but the lines of communication are open. deGrom dazzled in 2018 and won the National League Cy Young, although he only managed to win 10 games with a bad Mets offense behind him...
