Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Tuesday that he's "not optimistic" Starling Marte (concussion) will be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Wednesday.

Marte went through a full workout Tuesday and appears to be feeling better, but he could go out on a rehab assignment before returning. The outfielder has been on the disabled list for the past week following post-concussion symptoms.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Yankees are interested in trading for Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole.

Heyman writes that the "initial impression" is that the Pirates aren't trading him, but it would be smart to at least listen. The Yankees' farm system is loaded and they didn't have to give up any of their top prospects in the Giancarlo Stanton deal. Cole is coming off a 4.26 ERA over 203 innings in 2017 and remains under team control for two more years.

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.

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.
Dec 11 - 8:28 AM

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Cardinals and Rockies are "aggressively pursuing" Rays closer Alex Colome via trade.

The Rays are known to be shopping various players on their roster and the Cardinals and Rockies are widely expected to add a closer, so it wouldn't be surprising if there was a match here. Interest should reach well beyond these two clubs, as well. Colome led the majors with 47 saves this past season and owns a 2.63 ERA over the past two seasons. He's arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter.
Dec 11 - 8:13 AM

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Cardinals have agreed to a two-year, $11 million contract with free agent right-hander Luke Gregerson.

The deal also includes a vesting option for a third season. The 33-year-old had a down year in 2017, compiling a 4.57 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 70/20 K/BB ratio across 61 innings for the Astros. He's still considered one of the most reliable right-handed setup men in the league and will make for a nice addition to the Cardinals bullpen.
Dec 10 - 4:25 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Yankees are planning a press conference to introduce Giancarlo Stanton on Monday.

The trade sending Stanton to the Yankees for Starlin Castro and a couple prospects isn't official yet, but the slugger has reportedly already taken his physical and will officially don the pinstripes for the first time Monday. The Yankees are reportedly assuming $265 million of the $295 million owed to Stanton, who has an opt-out clause in his contract after the 2020 season.
