According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Mariners are discussing a trade for Giants starter Chris Heston.

Heston was a nice innings-eater for San Francisco in 2015, but he allowed six runs in just five innings at the major league level this past year while fighting through oblique issues. It'd be a buy-low type of situation for Seattle, though Heston has never been considered a great talent. He turns 29 years old next April.

According to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Yankees have expressed interest in free agent reliever Sergio Romo.

Shea says "several teams" have also made the call. Romo battled elbow problems in 2016 and only pitched 30 2/3 regular-season innings for the Giants, but he still managed a 2.64 ERA and boasts a career ERA of 2.58 with a career K/9 of 10.2. The veteran righty will turn 34 years old next March.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the White Sox are "close" to a deal that would send Adam Eaton to the Nationals.

Rosenthal further relays that Victor Robles is not part of the deal as it is currently coming together. The Nationals have also reportedly been linked to outfielders Andrew McCutchen, Lorenzo Cain and Charlie Blackmon. Eaton cracked 14 homers, drove in 59 runs and stole 14 bases in 619 at-bats last season while working to a .284/.362/.428 triple-slash.

MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports that the White Sox are working on a deal that would send Adam Eaton to the Nationals.

The White Sox are in full sell mode right now after their trade of Chris Sale to the Red Sox. As for their potential trade partner here, the Nationals have reportedly been in on Andrew McCutchen but appear to be broadening their outfield targets. Eaton hit .284/.362/.428 with 14 homers, 59 RBI and 14 steals over 619 at-bats in 2016.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports the Marlins have signed catcher A.J. Ellis to a one-year, $2.5 million deal.

Ellis will head to Miami to act as J.T. Realmuto's backup catcher. The veteran hit just .216/.301/.298 in 2016 between the Dodgers and Phillies, but his clubhouse rep is exceptional and he's had some decent seasons in the past.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that Tyson Ross' asking price is in the $9-11 million range.

And according to Grant, that may not include incentives. The Padres opted to non-tender Ross rather than give him a similar salary through arbitration, but some team might be willing to take a chance even as he's making his way back from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. There's just not much out there in free agency.

Agent Scott Boras said Wednesday that his client Matt Wieters might not sign until January.

Wieters' market has been rather quiet after he put up an underwhelming .711 OPS (87 OPS+) in 2016 while also taking a step back behind the plate. The Orioles didn't make him a qualifying offer this time, so at least he doesn't have draft pick compensation attached. Boras said he has talked to several teams, but he appears content with waiting out the market.

Yankees signed DH Matt Holliday to a one-year, $13 million contract.

The deal was reported over the weekend and it's now official. Holliday turns 37 next month and is coming off a year where he slugged 20 homers with a .782 OPS in 110 games while missing significant time with a fractured thumb. The plan calls for him to serve as the primary designated hitter, but he could also see occasional time in the outfield and at first base. He could have a better chance to stay healthy in this situation and we wouldn't rule out a return to relevancy in mixed fantasy leagues while playing in the AL East.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Wednesday that he's planning to have Huston Street, Cam Bedrosian, and Andrew Bailey compete for the closer job in spring training.

Street would seem to have the edge, but he isn't going to have the job handed to him after an injury-plagued season where he posted an ugly 6.45 ERA and 14/12 K/BB ratio over 22 1/3 innings. The 33-year-old required minor knee surgery in August, but he's expected to be ready for spring training. Bedrosian is the closer of the future here, but Bailey had a strong finish in the role.
Dec 7 - 2:45 PM

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Nationals have talked with the Rays about a potential Alex Colome trade.

The Nationals are on the lookout for a closer and Colome would certainly fit the bill, as he put up a 1.97 ERA with 37 saves and a 71/15 K/BB ratio over 56 2/3 innings this past season. But the cost is going to be considerable. The 27-year-old Colome isn't even eligible for arbitration yet.
Dec 7 - 2:22 PM

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Nationals are considering White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton.

After missing out on Chris Sale, the Nationals have pivoted back to landing a center fielder. And their search is stretching beyond Andrew McCutchen. It only makes sense that Eaton's name would come up, as the White Sox probably already know who they'd like from the Nationals' system. Other trade candidates include Lorenzo Cain with the Royals and possibly Charlie Blackmon with the Rockies.
