Phillies exercised C Carlos Ruiz's $5 million option for 2013.

It was an easy call for the Phils. Ruiz hit .325/.394/.540 with 16 home runs and 68 RBI in 421 plate appearances this season while playing exceptional defense behind the plate. The 33-year-old is currently scheduled to hit the free agent market after the 2013 campaign.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Mets, Rockies, Blue Jays and Mariners "are among the teams eyeing" Jay Bruce.

It's been reported previously that the Mets were interested in a reunion with Bruce, and the Blue Jays have seemingly been eyeing the outfielder for a few years now. Bruce is reportedly looking for a five-year, $80-90 million contract this offseason, although he's surely going to have to come down from those demands. The 30-year-old batted .254/.324/.508 with 36 homers and 101 RBI last season.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Orioles are discussing trading a reliever to the Mets for Matt Harvey.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports first mentioned earlier Monday that the O's were seen as one club that could make a play for Harvey. Rosenthal mentions that Harvey and Brad Brach are projected for similar salaries in their final arbitration years and that Darren O'Day is owed $18 million over the next two seasons. There's been a decent amount of smoke the last few days about the Mets listening to offers for Harvey.

Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Monday that reports of the team making Jackie Bradley available via trade are "not accurate."

"I don't know where those rumors have started but they're not accurate," Dombrowski said. It's a notable denial but doesn't necessarily mean anything, as the Red Sox can say they're not shopping Bradley but still be willing to trade him for the right return. The Royals and Giants are two teams that reportedly have interest in the outfielder. Bradley is under team control through 2020.

MLB.com's Todd Zolecki reports that a reunion of Pat Neshek and the Phillies "could be announced this week."

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Neshek received a couple multi-year offers and is expected to take one from the Phillies in the $16-17 million range. The veteran reliever began last season in Philadelphia before being sent to Colorado in a trade. Neshek, 37, posted a 1.59 ERA and 69/9 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings in 2017.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Pirates "are willing to listen" to trade offers for Gerrit Cole.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported earlier Monday that the Yankees are interested in Cole, and Olney notes that the two sides "match up well for potential deals" and general managers Brian Cashman and Neal Huntington "have an extensive trade history." Cole, who was drafted by the Yanks in the first round out of high school but didn't sign, is under team control for two more seasons.

Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports that the Rockies are "taking a hard look" at free agent first baseman Carlos Santana.

Add the Rockies to a list which also includes the likes of the Indians, Rangers, Padres, Phillies, Red Sox, and Mariners. The Rockies have also been linked to Jay Bruce and Logan Morrison, but Harding hears that the club is "believed to have a stronger interest" in Santana than either of those players.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Astros are interested in adding another top starting pitcher.

Rosenthal hears that the Astros are considering free agents Yu Darvish and Jake Arrieta and might be in the mix for Rays right-hander Chris Archer if he's made available via trade. The report comes as a bit of a surprise after the club added Justin Verlander this year, but the club appears to be looking ahead with Dallas Keuchel (who just hired Scott Boras as his agent) on track to hit free agency next offseason.

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register confirms that the Angels have had discussions with free agent third baseman Mike Moustakas.

The Angels have been speculated as a potential fit from the very beginning, so it's no surprise they have checked in. However, nothing appears to be imminent. Moustakas is looking to cash in this winter after slugging a career-high 38 homers with a .272/.314/.521 batting line in 2017.

Marlins acquired INFs Starlin Castro and Jose Devers, and RHP Jorge Guzman from the Yankees for OF Giancarlo Stanton and cash considerations.

Castro’s stay with the Marlins figures to be brief. The primary objective for the Marlins was to shed Stanton’s contract, so they didn’t receive the top prospects fans were hoping for here, but they should get some decent pieces back for Castro. The 27-year-old is owed $24 million over the next two seasons and batted .300/.338/.545 with 16 homers over 112 games in 2017.

Yankees acquired OF Giancarlo Stanton and cash considerations from the Marlins for INFs Starlin Castro and Jose Devers, and RHP Jorge Guzman.

Most importantly for the Marlins, the Yankees will be responsible for $265 million of the $295 million remaining on Stanton’s contract. Per Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Yankees will only receive $30 million from the Marlins if Stanton doesn’t use his opt-out after the 2020 season. Virtually nobody saw the Yankees coming here, but they swooped in after Stanton turned down deals to the Giants and Cardinals and finding a fit with the Dodgers was too complicated. The contract doesn’t hamstring the Yankees and they didn’t have to give up any of their top prospects. Assuming everyone stays healthy, the Yankees’ lineup has a chance to be something special in 2018.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Mets have inquired on Rays closer Alex Colome.

Topkin mentions the Mets alongside the Cardinals and Rockies as teams that are "hot" for the 29-year-old right-hander. The feeling is that the Cubs could also be involved. The Mets might be hesitant to give big money to relievers in free agency, but their farm system isn't very strong. The Rays will likely be able to do better elsewhere.
