Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports that multiple teams are pursuing free agent reliever Seung Hwan Oh.

Oh had a great first season stateside, but he faded this past season while posting a 4.10 ERA in 62 appearances. The 35-year-old gave up 10 homers in 59 1/3 innings. Someone will surely take a chance on a turnaround and it likely won't cost much to do it.

Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports that the Rays have signed Dominican shortstop Jelfry Marte.

Marte previously signed with the Twins for $3 million, but the deal was voided due to a vision issue. Sanchez notes that the Rays only have $440,000 to spend during the current international signing period, so it's possible they are in the process of acquiring additional funds. LaVelle E. Neal III hears that Marte signed for around $800,000. The 16-year-old Marte is a switch-hitter who is well-regarded for his speed and defense.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that J.D. Martinez is scheduled to arrive at the Winter Meetings on Tuesday night to meet with at least one team.

Martinez is arguably the best hitter available on the free agent market. Of course, his defense isn't considered a strength, but most believe he'll still land a contract well north of $100 million. The Red Sox, Diamondbacks, Giants, and Cardinals are among the teams to watch here.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway indicated Tuesday that he might not have a dedicated closer in 2018.

Instead, Callaway would prefer to make his decisions based on the situation. It's a refreshing way to think about things, though obviously any plan is subject to change. Jeurys Familia and A.J. Ramos are at the top of the depth chart, but the Mets could still add another name to the mix soon.

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets have discussed a possible Jed Lowrie trade with the Athletics, but that the two sides don't appear to match up for a deal.

The Mets are known to be in the market for a second baseman, with trade targets like Ian Kinsler, Jason Kipnis, and Josh Harrison also under consideration, so it makes sense that they would at least all on Lowrie. It doesn't sound like talks got very far, though. Lowrie is owed $8 million in 2018 and batted .277/.360/.448 with 14 home runs and 69 RBI over 153 games this past season.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Giants remain the most interested team for Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton.

Giants general manager Bobby Evans talked up prospect Steven Duggar for center field on Monday, but the club clearly isn't against making a trade in order to improve their defense. Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley, Jr. has also been mentioned as a possibility. Hamilton brings game-changing speed and defense, but he batted just .247/.299/.335 this past season. He's under team control for two more years. The Reds are reportedly shopping their outfielders (Adam Duvall included) in order to make room for prospect Jesse Winker.

LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that the Twins have met with the representatives for Brandon Kintzler and Juan Nicasio.

The Twins are obviously very familiar with Kintzler, who Neal writes is "very open to a return." The 33-year-old served as Minnesota's closer this past season before being traded to the Nationals at the July 31 deadline. Nicasio doesn't have as much closing experience as Kintzler, but he put up an excellent 2.61 ERA in 76 appearances this past season. The back-end of the Twins' bullpen is unsettled, so either of these pitchers could end up saving games.

The Cardinals have emerged as the favorites to acquire Marcell Ozuna from the Marlins, reports Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

Nightengale notes that "no decision" has been made yet, but chatter has picked up since the club was able to trade Giancarlo Stanton. It's worth remembering that the Cardinals were in the mix for Stanton, so the Marlins already have a pretty good idea about what they like in the club's minor league system. Ozuna has also draw interest from the likes of the Rangers, Nationals, Rockies, and Blue Jays.
