Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports that the Yankees are "pushing hard" to make a trade with the Mets.

It's been reported that the Mets, Yankees and Marlins are discussing a three-way trade that would send J.T. Realmuto to the Mets and likely Noah Syndergaard to the Yankees. Martino says that the Yanks are interested in the Mets' pitching and it's "not necessarily limited to Syndergaard." Joel Sherman of the New York Post is hearing that while the Mets are working on multiple scenarios trying to land Realmuto, the one involving the Yankees "is not among the strongest." There might still be more to this story soon, so hang tight.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that Adrian Gonzalez plans to play in 2019 and the Diamondbacks are "one of the teams who may have interest."

Gonzalez opened last season as the Mets' first baseman but was released after batting just .237/.299/.373 with six homers over 54 games. He will turn 37 next May and surely would have to settle for a minor league contract at this point. Nightengale says that "money won't be an issue" for Gonzalez.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Mets have discussed a three-team trade with the Yankees and Marlins in which they would land J.T. Realmuto.

The Mets and Yankees haven't made a trade involving major leaguers since 2004, but Rosenthal says new Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen has been in "steady" talks with the Yanks since he was hired. Rosenthal adds that he's not sure whether Noah Syndergaard is part of the discussions but the Mets would not trade Syndergaard if they only get Realmuto in return. Andy Martino of SNY.tv says that Syndergaard going to the Yankees is a "real possibility," but there are "10 other scenarios" the Mets are considering. We're sure to hear more about this possible three-way deal as the Winter Meetings unfold.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays "continue to have dialogue" with Charlie Morton.

Morton is 35 and dealt with shoulder issues down the stretch this past season, but his market has still been strong after he posted a 3.13 ERA and 201/64 K/BB ratio over 167 innings across 30 starts for the Astros. He should be able to land a multi-year contract.

Nick Groke of The Athletic reports that the Rockies had trade talks with the Phillies about Carlos Santana before Santana was traded to the Mariners.

The Mariners are rebuilding and open to flipping Santana to another team, so it's possible the Rockies could still be a fit for the first baseman. Obviously, it would be a boon to Santana's fantasy value should he land in Colorado. Ian Desmond currently is lined up to play first base for the Rockies, but it sounds like they want to add a first baseman and use Desmond in the outfield.

Gregory Polanco (shoulder) is scheduled to resume a throwing program in January.

Polanco had surgery in September to repair a dislocated left shoulder and damaged labrum. General manager Neal Huntington said the Pirates will have a better idea as to Polanco's timetable once he's throwing again. Most likely, he will begin the season on the disabled list.

MLB.com's Jon Morosi reports that the Dodgers have interest in Nicholas Castellanos.

The common thought is that the Dodgers will trade at least one outfield to reduce their logjam, but they're at least keeping tabs on the market for Castellanos. However, Morosi notes that "there’s no present momentum toward a deal" and Castellanos "is not their highest priority." Morosi previously listed the Braves as a team that has interest.

Padres general manager A.J. Preller said Monday that the team has discussed using Robert Stock in a starter/hybrid role next season.

He's presumably talking about an "opener" role for Stock, although the GM said Stock will most likely fill the same role he had in 2018. Stock impressed with a 2.50 ERA and 38/13 K/BB ratio over 39 2/3 frames last season and often pitched multiple innings in his appearances.

Athletics general manager David Forst said Monday that the team continues to have contract extension talks with Khris Davis.

However, it doesn't appear that anything is on the horizon, as the A's are focused right now on filling the numerous holes they have on their roster. Davis is arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter before hitting free agency next offseason.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays have maintained a "running dialogue" with Nelson Cruz.

The Rays have discussed some contract parameters with Cruz and his agent, Bryce Dixon, says the slugger is interested in Tampa. However, Cruz is also receiving interest from an additional 3-4 teams and is weighing his options. The Astros, White Sox and Twins have also been connected to the 38-year-old.

White Sox signed INF Ryan Goins to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Goins, 30, is a career .228/.274/.333 hitter over parts of six major league seasons. He will compete for a utility infielder job.
Dec 10 - 9:36 PM

Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said Monday that Dexter Fowler will be given every chance to win the team's right field job for next season.

Fowler hit an ugly .180/.278/.298 and was limited to 90 games due to injury in 2018, but the Cards are hopeful that he can bounce back in 2019. St. Louis has Tyler O'Neill and Jose Martinez still as alternatives in right field if Fowler flops again, although Martinez is looking like a good bet to be traded to an American League club.
Dec 10 - 9:34 PM

Robert Murray of The Athletic reports that the Brewers have expressed interest in Daniel Murphy.

Murray also confirms that the club is interested in re-signing Mike Moustakas, which has been reportedly previously. General manager David Stearns said Monday that the team is planning on Travis Shaw being their second baseman next season, but obviously the signing of Murphy or Moustakas would change that.

Reds signed INF Christian Colon to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Colon, 29, is a career .252/.315/.315 hitter over parts of four major league seasons. He's merely organizational depth.

Reds re-signed C Juan Graterol to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Graterol was non-tendered by the Reds late last month but is now back in the organization. He'll likely being 2019 at Triple-A Louisville.
