Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald hears that free agent slugger J.D. Martinez prefers to play in the outfield rather than serve as a designated hitter.

This news may put a crimp in the efforts of his biggest suitor, the Boston Red Sox, who have a crowded outfield and would likely want Martinez to DH. The Red Sox have been vocal about their interest in the best hitter remaining on the market this winter. Only five players (Mike Trout, Joey Votto, Bryce Harper, Paul Goldschmidt and Josh Donaldson) have a better OPS over the last three seasons than Martinez's .943 mark. He slashed .303/.376/.690 with 45 homers and 104 RBI in just 119 games this year. He is reportedly asking for a $200 million contract and the Red Sox might have to pay him a bit extra to entice him to play DH. The Diamondbacks, Giants and Rockies are also believed to be angling for his services.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Yankees and Pirates "are continuing to talk about Gerrit Cole."

Heyman says that Clint Frazier would likely be part of any package the Pirates would get for Cole, which backs up a previous report from the New York Post's George King. Cole is coming off a season when he held a 4.26 ERA and 196/55 K/BB ratio over 203 innings. He's under team control through 2019.
