Cardinals' general manager John Mozeliak said Saturday that while he imagines a role in the club's bullpen for Dakota Hudson, it's a mistake to rule him out as a starter.

Hudson will be stretched out as a starter at the beginning of the spring, and then likely shift to the bullpen in March as the team's final roster becomes more defined. The 24-year-old hurler did a nice job out of the Cardinals' bullpen in 2018, compiling a 2.63 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 19/18 K/BB ratio in his 27 1/3 innings of work.

Cardinals' general manager John Mozeliak said Saturday that left-hander Brett Cecil has experienced significant weight loss and strength gains as a result of his offseason training program.

The Cardinals are hopeful that this well help the 32-year-old hurler bounce back from two very disappointing seasons. Cecil registered a cringe-inducing 6.89 ERA and 1.96 WHIP over 32 2/3 innings in his 40 appearances for the Cardinals in 2018.

Cardinals' general manager John Mozeliak indicated Saturday that Luke Gregerson (shoudler) has "not felt right" during his throwing program this winter.

The veteran right-hander is expected to be limited as spring training begins as the team attempts to assess the issue. Gregerson was shut down in July due to inflammation in his pitching shoulder, which caused him to miss the remainder of the season.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Twins have reached a contract agreement with free agent left-hander Martin Perez.

According to Rosenthal, it's a one-year major league deal that includes a club option for a second season. No word yet on the financials. Perez hit the open market after the Rangers declined his $7.5 million option in December. The 27-year-old hurler registered a troublesome 6.22 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 52/36 K/BB ratio across 85 1/3 innings for the Rangers in 2018.

Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that the Giants have been gauging trade interest in third baseman Evan Longoria.

Longoria has four years and $72.5 million remaining on his contract with the Giants, in addition to a $2 million assignment bonus if he's traded, so the Giants may have to contribute significant cash if they're hoping to move him. The 33-year-old hit .244/.281/.413 with 16 homers and 54 RBI over 125 games in his first season with the Giants.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the Dodgers have growing interest in possibly signing OF A.J. Pollock.

The Dodgers have a plethora of outfielders but Cody Bellinger is the only one that could be considered a star-level player. Pollock would fill a need in center field and his right-handed bat would help balance out a lefty-heavy lineup. Pollock battted .257/.316/.484 with 21 home runs, 65 RBI and 13 steals in 113 games last year for the Diamondbacks. He missed nearly two months due to a fractured thumb.

Jon Heyman of Fancred reports the Reds are reluctant to include catching prospect Tyler Stephenson in a trade for Sonny Gray.

Heyman says the Reds' talks with the Yankees now center around second baseman Shed Long, a sandwich draft pick and a second, lower-level prospect. Long is a converted catcher who has developed into a bat-first second baseman. He is nearly ready for the major leagues but is blocked in Cincinnati by Scooter Gennett and Nick Senzel. Long spent the 2018 season at Double-A Pensacola and slashed .261/.353/.412 with 12 homers, 56 RBI, 75 runs and 19 stolen bases in 126 games.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Cardinals' brass intends to visit Marcell Ozuna in the Dominican Republic to check on his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery.

Ozuna opted to return home to rehabilitate his injury rather than spending the offseason at the team's Jupiter, Florida training facility. President of baseball operations John Mozeliak will check up on Ozuna while he is in the area for a graduation ceremony at the team's Dominican academy. Ozuna played with the injured shoulder all season and it showed in his stat line, which was well below his 2017 breakout season. The outfielder slashed .280/.325/.433 with 23 homers and 88 RBI in 2018 after slashing .312/.376/.548 with 37 homers and 124 RBI in 2017.
