Drew Hutchison delivered a strong start in Saturday’s victory over the Yankees, allowing just two runs on five hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Hutchison racked up seven strikeouts while issuing just three walks in the game. The only blemish on his day was a two-run homer off the bat of Brian McCann in the fourth inning. The rookie right-hander now owns a 4.44 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 109/41 K/BB ratio over his 119 2/3 innings on the year. He’ll look to carry over this strong start when he takes on the Astros in Houston on Thursday.

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.

Red Sox chairman Tom Werner said the Red Sox are in active negotiations with free agent slugger J.D. Martinez.

Speaking at the Red Sox Winter Weekend, Werner said the team "will make moves" prior to the season. Boston is believed to have the best deal on the table for Martinez at five years, $125 million per Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald.

Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald reports free agent 3B Eduardo Nunez worked out in front of Red Sox brass in the Dominican Republic this week.

Nunez battled a sore knee down the stretch last season but it did not require surgery and he has been given a clean bill of health by doctors. The Red Sox could use him at second base while Dustin Pedroia recuperates from his knee injury. When Pedroia returns, Nunez could utilize his positional versatility to get regular playing time in a super-utility role. The Mets are also rumored to be interested in Nunez. He turned in a .313 batting average with 12 homers, 58 RBI and 24 steals in 114 games with the Giants and Red Sox last year.

MLB.com's Jon Morosi reports that the Indians and Orioles discussed a potential Manny Machado trade last month, but "the sides aren't actively discussing him now."

Morosi notes that "many in the industry" believe the Indians are open to trading Danny Salazar, and he would certainly seem like a fit with the pitching-starved Orioles. However, it's unclear whether Salazar was involved in talks and it doesn't appear the two clubs have been in touch lately. Machado is not looking like a great bet to be traded before Opening Day at this point.
