Sources tell Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the Twins "could make another run" at left-handed reliever Justin Wilson.

Wilson struggled down the stretch with the Cubs and was held off their roster for the NLCS, so it's possible Chicago might want to move on from him this winter. Berardino notes that the Twins made a serious run at Wilson before the Tigers traded him to the Yankees in December 2015. The 30-year-old southpaw is entering his final season of arbitration eligibility and expected to command a salary of around $4.3 million.

According to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Twins have talked to the Pirates about acquiring Gerrit Cole.

Berardino adds that the pitching-hungry Twins have also been in touch with the Rays about right-hander Jake Odorizzi, and they're known to have interest in a number of starters on the free agent market. Cole finished the 2017 season with a disappointing 4.26 ERA in 203 innings, but the 27-year-old registered a 3.23 ERA in 579 1/3 innings between 2013-2016 and he is under club control through 2019. Pittsburgh would probably want multiple prospects in return.

Jon Morosi of confirms that Major League Baseball, Nippon Professional Baseball, and the MLB Players Association have agreed to a new posting system.

The old system will be grandfathered in for this offseason and then a new set of rules will take effect next winter. That old system calls for MLB teams to pay a posting fee to NPB teams in order to acquire their players. Shohei Otani figures to command the maximum $20 million sum, though all that money will go to the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters and Otani's first MLB contract will only be worth between $300,000 to $3.53 million due to his age and MLB's international spending rules. The new system, to be instituted for the 2019-2021 offseason periods, will give NPB teams a percentage of a player's first MLB contract. Obviously the main headline here is that Otani is indeed coming to Major League Baseball in 2018 and should be posted by next weekend.

Major League Baseball, Nippon Professional Baseball, and the MLB Players Association have reached a "tentative agreement" on a new posting system, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Full details aren't out yet, but it sounds like there will be a unique set of rules for this offseason -- essentially centered around the Shohei Otani market -- with a new three-year agreement to follow that would cover the 2019-2021 offseasons. Sherman says the MLB owners have 10 days to ratify, meaning Otani probably won't be posted until next Friday or Saturday. Nonetheless, this is great progress toward the arrival of the 23-year-old two-way talent in MLB.
