  • Rockies, M's no longer talking Trumbo deal
    Thomas Harding of reports that the Rockies are no longer talking with the Mariners about a trade for Mark Trumbo.

    Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal previously reported that the Rockies had talked to the Mariners about Trumbo, but apparently that was a while ago. There's always the chance that the two sides could revisit things, but nothing is current. The Mariners have until 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday to tender a contract to Trumbo for 2016. They could still elect to tender him a contract before dealing him elsewhere. The Orioles have also reportedly expressed interest. 30 minutes ago

  • Report: Astros shopping slugger Chris Carter
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Astros are shopping slugger Chris Carter.

    Advice: Crasnick writes that the Astros are focusing on American League teams, which makes sense since he profiles best as a designated hitter. Carter offers big-time power, amassing 90 home runs over the past three seasons, but he has hit just .218 with a .312 on-base percentage during that time to go along with a strikeout rate approaching 34 percent. He made $4.175 million in 2015 and is under team control through 2018. 53 minutes ago
  • Heyman: O's have interest in trade for Trumbo
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles are interested in a possible trade with the Mariners for Mark Trumbo.

    Advice: The Mariners are reportedly pushing hard to trade Trumbo, who is due to make around $9 million via the arbitration process in 2016. With Chris Davis on the open market, he could fit for them at first base or DH. The outfield is also an option, though he would be a liability there. The Rockies have also expressed interest in a trade for Trumbo. There's a chance we could see a resolution by Wednesday's non-tender deadline. Today, 10:30 am

  • Report: Cards' interest in Davis 'overblown'
    Jerry Crasnick of ESPN was told by a person with knowledge of the Cardinals' agenda that the team's reported interest in Chris Davis is "overblown."

    Advice: The Cardinals have reportedly been in touch with Davis' agent, Scott Boras, and value his versatility, but Crasnick hears that he's not the top priority for GM John Mozeliak. Of course, the club also has interest in re-signing Jason Heyward and adding another starting pitcher. Regardless, the 29-year-old slugger appears likely to land a contract well north of $100 million this offseason. Today, 8:48 am

    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rockies are among the teams who have talked to the Mariners about a trade for Mark Trumbo.

    Advice: Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune confirms that the Mariners are "trying hard" to move Trumbo.

Trumbo turns 30 in January and batted .262/.310/.449 with 22 home runs and 64 RBI over 142 games this past season. He's due to make around $9 million in his final year of arbitration. Today, 5:30 am

    Advice: Scruggs batted just .262/.279/.310 across 43 plate appearances this past season for the Cardinals, but the 28-year-old has flashed some promising power numbers at the upper levels of the minor leagues. He's a nice organizational-depth addition for the Fish. Yesterday, 9:28 am

    White Sox signed C Alex Avila to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

    Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman passed along the contract details. Avila, who turns 29 in January, struggled through injuries this season while batting just .191 with four home runs and a .626 OPS over 67 games. However, he's a gamble at this price.

    Advice: It's a real possibility, as the Pirates are shopping him, as well as Neil Walker and Mark Melancon. While there's nothing to indicate that they are interested, Heyman speculates that the Orioles could be a fit.

    ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Orioles owner Peter Angelos is "personally involved in the team's effort to re-sign" free agent first baseman Chris Davis.

    Advice: That's nice, but it's all going to come down to the size of the contract. And the 29-year-old Davis has many deep-pocketed teams in pursuit of him as the premier power bat in this free agent market. Davis posted a .923 OPS with 47 home runs and 117 RBI in 160 games this past season for Baltimore. He also led all major league hitters with a whopping 208 strikeouts. Nov 23, 5:43 am

  • Orioles ink minor league deal with Ji-Man Choi

  • Report: Cardinals looking into Chris Davis
    Fox Sports' Jon Paul Morosi reports the Cardinals are showing interest in Chris Davis.

    Advice: The Cardinals have already been in touch with his agent, Scott Boras. St. Louis seems to be intrigued by Davis' versatility. The 29-year-old slugger has started at four different positions including first base, third base and both corner outfield spots. The Cardinals might view Davis as the long-term replacement for left-fielder Matt Holliday, who only has one guaranteed season left on his contract. This year's major league home run champ should net nine figures. Nov 21, 3:28 pm
