Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Cardinals have been active in talks with the Rays about acquiring a starting pitcher.

The Rays have been shopping several of their starters around, so it's unclear at the moment who the Cardinals are inquiring about. Jake Odorizzi is from the St. Louis area and would make a lot of sense for the Cardinals, and had been talked about in previous trade discussions with the Dodgers. Drew Smyly, Matt Moore and Erasmo Ramirez would also be possibilities as the Cardinals strive to replace the hole in their rotation created by the departure of John Lackey and injury to Lance Lynn.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports no trade is imminent between the Dodgers and Rays regarding Jake Odorizzi.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported earlier in the day that the two sides were talking, but several sources indicated to Topkin that the sides are still pretty far apart. The Dodgers would likely have to give up quite a lot to get Odorizzi, who had a 3.35 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 150/46 K/BB ratio over 169 1/3 innings last year.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Dodgers are in talks to acquire Jake Odorizzi.

Tampa Bay is going to want a ton in return for the 25-year-old cost-controlled starter, but the Dodgers have the kind of high-level and mid-level prospects to put together an enticing enough package. Odorizzi posted a strong 3.35 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 150/46 K/BB ratio across 169 1/3 innings this past season for the Rays. He can't become a free agent until 2020.

According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays have offered a multi-year extension to Jake Odorizzi.

Odorizzi's agent, Jason Wood, told Topkin that it was a "very nice initial offer" but that he's working on a counter proposal. Odorizzi, 25, registered a cool 3.35 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 150/46 K/BB ratio in 169 1/3 innings this past season for Tampa Bay. He isn't even eligible for arbitration yet, so there's no real rush from either side to get something done this winter.

According to ESPN's Jayson Stark, the Rays are trying to be "opportunistic" by seeing what offers they can get for Jake Odorizzi and Matt Moore.

According to Starks, Chris Archer is the only starter the Rays won't make available in a trade. Tampa Bay has excellent depth and could easily swap one of their talented arms for a productive, middle-of-the-order bat. As we've seen in the past with aces like James Shields, Matt Garza and David Price, the Rays are not afraid to pull the trigger. The Rays could very well be sellers at the upcoming Winter Meetings.

Jake Odorizzi allowed just an unearned run over seven innings Thursday in beating the Marlins.

The Marlins did their best to make it easy for him by playing Ichiro Suzuki in right and Tomas Telis at DH. It's actually the first time Odorizzi has completed seven innings in 16 starts since he came off the DL in mid-July. He was much better before suffering his strained oblique, and the guess here is that he'll look more like the Odorizzi of the first half (2.47 ERA in 12 starts) next year.

Jake Odorizzi struggled at times in Friday's loss to the Yankees, allowing five runs on three hits over 6 2/3 innings.
