Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports reports that Tyler Flowers "could be had" in a trade.

There have been some reports recently downplaying the Braves' interest in J.T. Realmuto, but Flowers being available via trade would suggest they might be trying to clear space for a big addition. Flowers is currently slated to share time behind the plate with Brian McCann next season.
Dec 16 - 8:37 AM

A source tells MLB.com's Mark Bowman that the Braves "do not plan to have any further talks with the Marlins" regarding J.T. Realmuto.

Bowman hears the Braves haven't even had any discussions about the All-Star catcher in the past five days. The club was recently rumored to be one of a handful, along with the Reds, Mets, Rays, Dodgers and Padres, interested in the Miami backstop. With the Braves out, allegedly, it seems as though they're comfortable entering the season with Tyler Flowers and Brian McCann as their catcher tandem.

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal is reporting free agent Matt Adams is in agreement with the Nationals, pending a physical.

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan hears it's a one-year, $4 million contract. Adams has spent the past few years rotating between a handful of teams, coming up with the Cardinals before being dealt to the Braves, then joining the Nats ahead of last season before a trade sent him back to the Cards mid-year. Now, he's back in the nation's capital on a one-year deal. As he was deployed by the Nats his first time around, the 30-year-old will likely spell Ryan Zimmerman at first base and could see more playing time if the oft-injured Zimmerman can't stay on the field or his decline escalates in 2019.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the Brewers are interested in free agent second baseman Jed Lowrie.

The Brewers have an opening at second base now that Travis Shaw will be moving back to third base full time. They've previously been connected with Daniel Murphy and now they are pursuing Lowrie. Brewers' general manager David Stearns is familiar with Lowrie from their mutual time with the Astros in 2015. The 34-year-old Lowrie is coming off the best season of his career after batting .267/.353/.448 with 23 home runs and 99 RBI.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the Astros would like to add at least one or maybe two hitters and have been talking to free agents Nelson Cruz and Michael Brantley.

The team would like to upgrade from outfielder Josh Reddick, whom they have reportedly tried to trade this offseason. Cruz is 38 years old and is limited to a designated hitter role but remains one of the best hitters in the major leagues. He batted .256/.342/.509 with 37 home runs and 97 RBI this past season for the Mariners. The 31-year-old Brantley can play outfield and first base and is coming off a season in which he slashed .309/.364/.468 with 17 home runs, 76 RBI, 89 runs scored and 12 stolen bases.

Angels signed Justin Bour to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

The deal was leaked on Wednesday and it is now official. Bour will see action at both first base and designated hitter, sharing time with Albert Pujols and Shohei Ohtani. He was non-tendered by the Phillies in late November after batting .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 423 at-bats with the Marlins and Phillies this past season. Those numbers were a disappointment considering he had slashed .289/.366/.536 with a whopping 25 homers and 83 RBI in just 377 at-bats the year before. The 30-year-old could provide a lot of value on a bargain contract for the Angels next year if he has a bounce-back campaign.

Daniel Palka is likely to play primarily left field following the White Sox' acquisition of first baseman Yonder Alonso in a trade with Cleveland on Saturday.

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn says he believes Alonso and Jose Abreu will occupy the first base and designated hitter slots in 2019. He is already on record saying the team has no plans to trade the veteran Abreu. Palka was the club's primary DH in 2018 but he will have to find his playing time somewhere else next year. Hahn said it will be up to manager Rick Renteria whether to put the defensively-challenged Palka in left field or have him come off the bench most days. The 27-year-old batted .240/.294/.484 with 27 home runs and 67 RBI in 417 at-bats this past season as a rookie.
Dec 15 - 1:13 PM

Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that the Indians' recent payroll-shedding trades have reduced their motivation to trade starting pitchers Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer.

The Indians have traded away Edwin Encarnacion, Yonder Alonso and Yan Gomes this offseason -- moves that have reduced their 2019 payroll by $18 million even after accounting for the addition of Carlos Santana. Both Heyman and Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com are hearing the team may have shaved the payroll down enough to where they don't need to make any more financially-driven moves. This may make it harder for other teams to pry away one or both of the Indians' ace pitchers. Both Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer have been made available on the trade market but they might be more likely to stay put as things now stand.
