In addition to surgery on his left foot, Jed Lowrie also recently had an operation for a deviated septum.

"I didn’t think anything of it, and then I saw an ear, nose and throat specialist and it turns out it wasn’t just a deviated septum, there were also two bone spurs," Lowrie said. "My sleep had been messed up for a long time, I realized." The additional surgery doesn't change Lowrie's rehab schedule. He's expected to be ready to go for spring training.

Jon Heyman of TodaysKnuckleball.com reports that the Cardinals do not plan to exercise Matt Holliday's $17 million option for 2017.

He also adds that they won't extend him a similarly priced qualifying offer, either. Holliday, who will turn 37 over the winter, has had a career-worst season at the plate, batting .242/.318/.450 with 19 homers over 424 plate appearances. He's missed the last six weeks with a fractured thumb.

Jon Heyman of TodaysKnuckleball.com reports that the Indians want to re-sign impending free agent Mike Napoli.

Napoli has proved to be one of the best free agent bargains of last winter by batting .242/.338/.473 with 34 homers and 101 RBI in 2016. Heyman says that the slugger, not surprisingly, wants a multi-year contract this offseason. He also notes that the Indians "may need to go far in the postseason" in order to be able to afford to make Napoli a qualifying offer. Of course, Napoli would probably turn it down, anyway. He'll turn 35 in a month.

Jon Heyman of TodaysKnuckleball.com hears that Matt Wieters and the Orioles "are believed to be tens of millions of dollars apart" in their valuations for the catcher.

Heyman adds that the two sides "didn’t even talk about an extension when they met last week" because "it would have been a waste of time." Wieters is looking for a Russell Martin/Brian McCann (five years, $82-85 million) type contract, according to Heyman, but the Orioles "aren’t expected to get near that." Heyman also adds that the club is unlikely to extend another qualifying offer (assuming there are still qualifying offers in the new CBA). It sounds like the impending free agent is likely to end up elsewhere unless his demands change.
