Didi Gregorius slugged two home runs in the Yankees' thrashing of the Marlins on Monday.

Gregorius hit a two-run shot off Tyler Cloyd in the bottom of the fourth and a solo blast off Chris O'Grady in the bottom of the seventh. He also drew a walk in the 12-1 rout of Miami, finishing the night 2-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored. The power-hitting 28-year-old shortstop boasts a .327/.446/.796 batting line with five home runs, 16 RBI, and 14 runs scored in 15 games this season.

Jon Paul Morosi of MLB.com reports that the Astros have remained in contact with J.A. Happ's representatives in recent days.

The Astros could use the help in their rotation with Dallas Keuchel and Charlie Morton on the free agent market. The 36-year-old Happ isn't going to get as long of a deal as Keuchel, but he's still trying to get three years and it sounds like he'll wait things out until he does. The Yankees and Phillies are among a group of clubs in on Happ.

Ken Rosenthal and Robert Murray of The Athletic are reporting that the White Sox have acquired right-hander Ivan Nova from the Pirates, pending medicals.

No word yet on the return for Pittsburgh. Nova has been about a league-average pitcher over the past two years, including a 4.19 ERA and 114/35 K/BB ratio in 161 innings across 29 starts in 2018. He's unlikely to fare better with the move to Chicago, but he's a solid enough innings eater. Nova turns 32 in January and is owed $8.5 million in 2019 before hitting free agency. As for the Pirates, the move could clear a spot for prospect Mitch Keller in the rotation.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Marlins talked to the Mariners about Carlos Santana last week.

Most of the attention is focused on J.T. Realmuto right now, but Rosenthal hears that the club is looking at mid-tier free-agent hitters and relievers. The interest in Santana suggest that they are also exploring trade possibilities. Santana was just swapped from the Phillies to the Mariners last week in the Jean Segura deal. One possible complication, with the Marlins or anyone else, is that the 32-year-old is guaranteed $35 million over the next two seasons when there are comparable players out there in free agency who will likely be available for much less. Offsetting bad contracts could make it easier.

Ken Rosenthal and Robert Murray of The Athletic hear from rival executives that the Yankees are open to moving Miguel Andujar.

Rosenthal calls Andujar a "name to watch" and speculates that he could be part of the ask in the much-hyped three-way trade talks involving Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto. Rosenthal hears that the Marlins want an established young major-leaguer as part of the return package. This could set the stage for the Yankees to intensify talks with free agent star Manny Machado to take over at third base, but obviously there's a long way to go. It's an interesting scenario to think about for now. Andujar is coming off a strong rookie season in which he batted .297/.328/.527 with 27 homers and 92 RBI over 149 games.

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the Nationals have engaged in multiple trade discussions regarding right-hander Tanner Roark.

Roark earned $6.475 million in 2018 and MLB Trade Rumors projects him to come close to $10 million in arbitration this winter, so the Nationals are looking at their options while also monitoring the free agent market for other starters. Of course, the Nats just bolstered their rotation with the addition of Patrick Corbin. Roark, 32, posted a 4.34 ERA and 146/50 K/BB ratio over 180 1/3 innings this past season.

Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports that the Yankees are "pushing hard" to make a trade with the Mets.

It's been reported that the Mets, Yankees and Marlins are discussing a three-way trade that would send J.T. Realmuto to the Mets and likely Noah Syndergaard to the Yankees. Martino says that the Yanks are interested in the Mets' pitching and it's "not necessarily limited to Syndergaard." Joel Sherman of the New York Post is hearing that while the Mets are working on multiple scenarios trying to land Realmuto, the one involving the Yankees "is not among the strongest." There might still be more to this story soon, so hang tight.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Mets have discussed a three-team trade with the Yankees and Marlins in which they would land J.T. Realmuto.

The Mets and Yankees haven't made a trade involving major leaguers since 2004, but Rosenthal says new Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen has been in "steady" talks with the Yanks since he was hired. Rosenthal adds that he's not sure whether Noah Syndergaard is part of the discussions but the Mets would not trade Syndergaard if they only get Realmuto in return. Andy Martino of SNY.tv says that Syndergaard going to the Yankees is a "real possibility," but there are "10 other scenarios" the Mets are considering. We're sure to hear more about this possible three-way deal as the Winter Meetings unfold.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays have maintained a "running dialogue" with Nelson Cruz.

The Rays have discussed some contract parameters with Cruz and his agent, Bryce Dixon, says the slugger is interested in Tampa. However, Cruz is also receiving interest from an additional 3-4 teams and is weighing his options. The Astros, White Sox and Twins have also been connected to the 38-year-old.

Robert Murray of The Athletic reports that the Brewers have expressed interest in Daniel Murphy.

Murray also confirms that the club is interested in re-signing Mike Moustakas, which has been reportedly previously. General manager David Stearns said Monday that the team is planning on Travis Shaw being their second baseman next season, but obviously the signing of Murphy or Moustakas would change that.

Miguel Cabrera (biceps) resumed swinging a bat earlier this month.

Cabrera had surgery in June to repair a ruptured left biceps tendon. He isn't totally out of the woods yet, but all signs point to him being ready to go at the beginning of spring training. Cabrera was limited to 38 games in 2018 and has dealt with numerous injuries the last few seasons. He will turn 36 in April.

Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen said Monday that Jake Lamb (shoulder) will play some first base next season in addition to third base.

Hazen noted that things can change depending on other potential moves the club makes this offseason, but it sounds like the plan is probably to play Lamb at first base and Eduardo Escobar at third base most days. Moving Lamb across the diamond makes sense, as he's coming back from shoulder surgery and isn't a great defender at the hot corner, anyway. Lamb hopes to be ready for the start of spring training.
