Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM reports that Edwin Jackson is down to the Rangers and Cubs after the Padres refused to offer him four years and bowed out.

The Angels and Indians had previously expressed interest in the right-hander, but they're evidently no longer players. The Rangers view Jackson as a backup plan after losing out on Zack Greinke, while the Cubs are looking at him as a backup plan after being outbid for Anibal Sanchez. Jackson shouldn't have trouble getting $50-plus million on a four-year contract.

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 is also reporting that Neshek has has two multi-year offers in the $16+ million range and is expected to sign in the next day or two. It sounds like he's headed back to Philadelphia, where he began last season 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.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that the Mets and Rangers have discussed a Matt Harvey-for-Jurickson Profar swap.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News speculated on a potential match early Monday morning while Mike Puma of the New York Post reported Monday afternoon that the two sides were talking. It would be the ultimate change-of-scenery deal, as Harvey has seen his career go off course over the past two years due to injury and there's no clear spot for Profar on the Rangers' roster. Heyman notes that there's "nothing firm" between the two sides, but they at least discussed the scenario. Harvey is due to become a free agent after 2018 while Profar still has three years of team control remaining.

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.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Red Sox have let several teams know that Jackie Bradley, Jr. is available via trade.

The Red Sox are looking to add some power to their lineup, so they are keeping an open mind about the composition of their outfield. If Bradley is moved, the Red Sox could slide Andrew Benintendi to center field. Bradley dropped off offensively in 2017, but he remains a brilliant defensive center fielder. He's under team control through 2020. Jon Morosi of MLB.com reported last month that the Giants were interested in Bradley.
Dec 11 - 9:29 AM

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, Brandon Morrow's deal with the Cubs is for $21 million over two years.

The deal is still pending a physical. He'll make $9 million in each of the next two seasons while there's a $12 million vesting option for 2020 which includes a $3 million buyout. Morrow managed to stay healthy this past season while posting a dominant 2.06 ERA and 50/9 K/BB ratio over 43 2/3 innings. He gives the Cubs a potential option at closer, but Rosenthal reports that the club is expected to add another late-inning arm.
