The Cubs interviewed Rays bench coach Dave Martinez for their vacant manager job on Thursday, reports Carrie Muskat of MLB.com.

This confirms reports from earlier this week. The Cubs have already interviewed former Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch, former Nationals and Indians manager Manny Acta, and Padres bench coach Rick Renteria. Meanwhile, Sandy Alomar, Jr. has also been rumored as a candidate.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Twins have won the bidding on Korean southpaw Hyeon-jong Yang.

No word yet on what the winning bid amount was, but it's believed to be far less than the Kia Tigers were hoping for when posting Yang. The Twins now have an exclusive 30-day window to negotiate a contract with Yang, and Berardino reports that the two sides are already closing in on a deal.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the White Sox and Adam LaRoche have agreed to a two-year, $25 million contract.

With Jose Abreu entrenched as the team's first baseman, it's likely that LaRoche will see most of his time in the DH role in the White Sox lineup. The 35-year-old slugger slashed .259/.362/.455 with 26 homers and 92 RBI in 140 games with the Nationals in 2014 and should see increased power numbers with the move to the hitter-friendly confines of U.S. Cellular Field.

The Rays have narrowed down their managerial search to three finalists: Kevin Cash, Raul Ibanez and Don Wakamatsu.

Wakamatsu is the only one of the trio who has previous experience as a major league manager. The surprise in this announcement, is that bench coach Dave Martinez, who was widely considered to be the favorite for the gig, wasn't even among the finalists.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Dodgers are drawing significant trade interest in outfielder Matt Kemp.

While the Dodgers would much rather prefer to trade Carl Crawford or Andre Ethier to free up the logjam in their outfield, they would certainly get a much better return package if unloading Kemp. They would also be free of the five years and $107 million remaining on Kemp's contract through 2019, which would allow them to be even more aggressive on the free agent market. If Kemp is indeed dealt, Joc Pederson could take over the reins in center field.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that it's "increasingly likely" Andrew Miller will get a four-year contract.

Morosi says that Miller "already has multiple offers of at least three years," so it appears a team might have to guarantee a fourth year to push them over the top. He also notes that Miller is expected to eclipse the previous high-water mark for a reliever with no closing experience, which currently sits at $6 million per season. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported last week that Miller was receiving interest from 22 teams.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Padres will make a contract off to Pablo Sandoval on Friday.

No word yet on what the terms might be, but it will have to at least be $90+ million in order to be competitive with what the Red Sox and Giants are reportedly willing to spend. It was Rosenthal who reported earlier Friday that new Padres GM A.J. Preller has been "working feverishly" and prepared to go in a variety of directions this offseason.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Rays have made Matt Joyce available for trade.

It's not surprising, as the Rays are in cost-cutting mode and Joyce is due another raise in what will be his final year of arbitration. The 30-year-old's OPS has been in a steady decline the last few years, bottoming out in 2014 at .732 when he hit just nine homers. Still, he can be a useful bat and the Rays should be able to find a taker for him.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post was told by an executive that Justin Upton "will be moved" this offseason.

The Braves dealt Jason Heyward earlier this week, but they don't plan to stop there. Like Heyward, Upton is set for free agency after next season, and the interest in him, according to Sherman, is "significant." Sherman adds that the price is steep, with the Braves looking for a bigger package than it took to land Heyward. The Mariners have long had interest in Upton and would appear to be a fit.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Cubs, Dodgers and White Sox have talked to the Diamondbacks about a trade involving Miguel Montero.

It's not clear how far along the talks with those teams have gotten, but Piecoro does note that the inquiries "have not picked up significantly" since the Russell Martin signing. The D'Backs are shopping Montero in hopes of clearing some payroll space, possibly so that they can add some pitching.

MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez reports that the Padres and Braves "have emerged as the favorites" for Yasmany Tomas.

The Phillies had universally been considered the favorites to sign the Cuban slugger, but they've apparently now bowed out. Sanchez that Tomas is seeking $15 million per season on a 5-7 year deal, though he hasn't ruled out the possibility of signing a shorter-term, higher-value deal that would allow him to hit free agency again sooner. The Braves are a new entrant into the Tomas sweepstakes and might have to make another trade or two in order to clear space for the outfielder.

Dodgers acquired RHP Joel Peralta and LHP Adam Liberatore from the Rays in exchange for RHPs Jose Dominguez and Greg Harris.

The Rays exercised Peralta's $2.5 million option for 2015 earlier this month (he has $2.5 million club options for 2016 and 2017, as well) but have now decided to deal him for a bit of payroll space. The 38-year-old put up a 3.58 ERA and 293/84 K/BB ratio over 269 1/3 frames the last four years for the Rays and will work in a setup role for the Dodgers.
