Martin Perez (elbow) told Venezuelan publication Lavinotinto that he will undergo Tommy John surgery.

Perez was diagnosed with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow earlier this week, so surgery considered inevitable. The 23-year-old has yet to schedule a date for surgery, but he's done for the season and figures to miss the early part of 2015, as well.

Mike Puma of the New York Post hears the Mets "still view Todd Frazier as a possibility."

Puma notes in the same report that Mike Moustakas does not seem to be a fit for the Mets, even with his price presumably dropping here in late January. Frazier has been tied to several different teams this winter -- some who view him as a first baseman, some who like him at third base, and some who could shift him between both spots. The 31-year-old free agent batted .213/.344/.428 with 27 home runs and 76 RBI in 147 games last season for the White Sox and Yankees.

Craig Mish of SiriusXM reports that the Brewers have put together a trade offer for Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich.

There's a long list of teams in the mix for Yelich, but Mish hears that the Brewers have shown "strong interest" as they look to improve upon their surprise 2017 season. And with a strong farm system, they also have the sort of prospects required to get a deal done. Yelich's contract (four years and $43.25 million) makes him an attractive option for both small and large-market teams. Nothing appears to be imminent, but the Brewers could be a legitimate suitor.

Blue Jays signed OF Curtis Granderson to a one-year, $5 million contract.

This makes official what was reported last week by Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Granderson turns 37 in March and limped to the finish line last season, ultimately finishing with a .212/.323/.452 batting line and 26 homers over 147 games. The Blue Jays suddenly have a bunch of moving pieces in their outfield, with Granderson likely to see most of his at-bats against right-handed starters.

Jay Cohen of The Associated Press reports that the Cubs are having "active talks" with Yu Darvish.

Cohen cites a source "with direct knowledge of the discussions" but cautions that there is "no agreement in place" at this point. The report comes on the heels of one earlier Monday from ESPN's Jerry Crasnick stating that Darvish had at least one five-year offer in hand. It's also worth pointing out that the Cubs on Monday agreed to a minor league contract with Chris Gimenez, who was Darvish's personal catcher for a time when they were with the Rangers. The Twins, Brewers, Dodgers, Yankees and Rangers are also thought to be in the mix for Darvish.

Giants signed OF Austin Jackson to a two-year, $6 million contract.

He'll have an opportunity to earn an addition $2.5 million in incentives. Jackson made the Indians' Opening Day roster last season after having to settle for a minor league contract, and he wound up hitting a robust .318/.387/.482 over 318 plate appearances. The Athletic's Andrew Baggarly hears that the Giants plan on Jackson being their fourth outfielder, as they're still on the lookout for a defensive upgrade in center field.

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, free agent right-hander Yu Darvish has at least one five-year offer on the table.

The identity of the team who made the offer and the specifics regarding the financials aren't known. However, given the number of teams involved, it would be no surprise if he ultimately lands a five-year deal. We could be getting close to crunch time, finally. The Cubs, Dodgers, Twins, Brewers, Yankees, and Rangers are all believed to be in the mix.

Cubs re-signed LHP Brian Duensing to a two-year, $7 million contract.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported news of the signing last week and it's now official. The southpaw was a useful part of the Cubs' bullpen last season, compiling a 2.74 ERA and 61/18 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings. He turns 35 in February.

According to reports from Yahoo Japan, the Brewers have made a formal contract offer to free agent right-hander Yu Darvish.

Darvish recently announced that his list of suitors had narrowed to six teams: the Cubs, Astros, Rangers, Twins, Yankees and a mystery club. There had been speculation that the mystery club was the Dodgers, but it could very well be the Brew Crew. Despite adding Jhoulys Chacin and Yovani Gallardo, the Brewers still have a large void to fill at the top of their rotation and Darvish would be a massive upgrade.

Devon Travis (knee) said Saturday he expects to begin running within the next month.

"I feel good," he told reporters at the team's Winter Fest. He said he hasn't experienced any setbacks in his recovery from season-ending surgery to repair cartilage damage in his right knee last June. If healthy, Travis should be the team's starting second baseman. His health woes, and the addition of Yangervis Solarte this winter, will be constant concerns throughout the year, though.

Josh Donaldson said Saturday he hasn't been in contact with the Blue Jays about a possible contract extension.

Donaldson has interest in a long-term deal with the club, but it hasn't been reciprocated, at least to the third baseman's knowledge. "To my knowledge, there hasn't been [any talks] up to this point," he said Saturday. "I think it will be a fluid situation at some point, it's just not now." The Jays are reported to have been approached about the impending free agent, but no talks have progressed to the point of being serious. Donaldson will make $23 million in 2018.

David Wright told Anthony DiComo of MLB.com that he still plans to continue his playing career.

The 35-year-old missed the entire 2017 season due to multiple injuries. He underwent surgery to repair the rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder and another operation to fix his lower back. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has promised to provide an update on Wright's status in late January, but the club isn't counting on him at this point. Wright played only 37 games in 2016 and 38 games in 2015. Prior to that he was a perennial first-round pick in fantasy drafts for his combination of high batting average, power and speed.
