    Colorado is interested in signing free agent Ramon Hernandez and might be willing to trade incumbent catcher Chris Iannetta to make room for him behind the plate, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Iannetta’s stock has dropped considerably in the past couple seasons, so it’s not surprising that the Rockies are willing to part with…

    Phoenix Muni

    Via about 12 different reporters in my Twitter feed a few minutes ago, we hear that the Athletics have announced they’re in negotiations to move their Spring Training operations from Phoenix Municipal Stadium to HoHoKam Park in Mesa, Arizona.  HoHoKam will be empty starting in the spring of 2013 because the Cubs are vacating it…

  4. Orioles, Angels have discussed a Jeremy Guthrie trade

    Nov 28, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Jeremy Guthrie

    I believe I heard the first Jeremy Guthrie trade rumor in the summer of 1984. I had just turned 11, got a copy of the Sporting News and read that the the Orioles were talking to some teams about dealing him but would, inevitably, just hold on to him so they could have an innings…

    Jonathan Broxton‘s agent told Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times that the rehabbing right-hander is close to signing and has ruled out returning to the Dodgers. According to agent B.B. Abbott “he had multiple suitors and we should have something tentative in the next few days.” Earlier this offseason Broxton was said to be…

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:32 PM EDT

    David Ortiz

    David Ortiz is one of those dudes who you just really can’t imagine switching teams. But he is a free agent, and the Boston Herald says this: David Ortiz has choices now. The free agent designated hitter is receiving “serious interest” from more than one team, an industry source said today, indicating that Ortiz has more than…

  9. The Cubs, White Sox are getting inquires about relievers Marmol, Santos

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:04 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    The White Sox are in a bit of a transitional period.  And a lot of people assumed that the Cubs would try to make a play for Prince Fielder or Albert Pujols or something like that. Maybe it’s more likely that both teams will simply be sellers. Here’s Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune: According…

  10. Mariners’ trade for John Jaso may make Miguel Olivo available

    Nov 28, 2011, 11:51 AM EDT

    Miguel Olivo

    Ongoing speculation that Seattle could look to trade catcher Miguel Olivo is likely even stronger after the Mariners acquired John Jaso from the Rays last night. Jaso facing most right-handers and Olivo facing most left-handers is a natural platoon from which the Mariners could get very nice production, but Adam Moore is also waiting in…

    Jordan Schafer

    Astros outfielder Jordan Schafer was arrested  in Florida back in October for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.  At a Cheesecake Factory. Just, I don’t know either, but that’s what he did.  Looks like he’s going to fly clear of serious consequences, however, as Zach Levine of the Houston Chronicle reports that he has opted for Florida’s pretrial intervention program. If…

    Nov 28, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox

    According to Lynn Henning of the Detroit News, the Tigers have made inquiries to Mark Buehrle.  Watch as Henning sets phasers to “every Mark Buehrle cliche you’ve ever heard”: The Tigers aren’t talking about Buehrle, although it’s known they have been one of many clubs inquiring what it might take to sign the fast-working, strikes-throwing,…

Wagner declined, telling them:…

    Nov 28, 2011, 10:03 AM EDT

    2011 World Series Game 7 - Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals

    There has been less-than-tepid interest from the Yankees in C.J. Wilson. Like, almost zero. That doesn’t necessarily mean everything, of course, as the Yankees have been known to lay kinda low until they just come in and sign someone, but today ESPN New York’s Andrew Marchand says that there is “almost no way” the Yankees sign…

  17. The Rays sign Jose Molina

    Nov 28, 2011, 9:35 AM EDT

    Jose Molina

    This has been a long time coming — it was first reported a couple of weeks ago — but the Rays have finally signed Jose Molina. It’s a one-year deal for $1.8 million with a club option. Of course, when this was first reported, Molina was supposed to be John Jaso‘s backup.  Jaso was traded…

  18. Report: it’s “100 percent certain” that Pujols will stay with the Cardinals

    Nov 28, 2011, 9:05 AM EDT

    pujols reuters

    Jeff Passan of Yahoo! spoke with an MLB executive who says he’s “100 percent certain” Albert Pujols will re-sign with the Cardinals.  The reason: no one else is really showing interest. At least no one with the kind of money to outbid St. Louis. I’ve kinda assumed this for a while. It was just bad timing…

    Ed Wade

    Shakeup time:  the Astros have announced that president of baseball operations Tal Smith and general manager Ed Wade have been fired. the moves come a week after Jim Crane took control of the team.  It was not terribly surprising.

  20. Mariners acquire catcher John Jaso from Rays

    Nov 27, 2011, 9:57 PM EDT

    John Jaso

    Given the Rays’ struggles behind the plate last season, it didn’t seem all that likely that the team would be content to replace Kelly Shoppach with Jose Molina and call it a day. They went in another direction Sunday, trading incumbent John Jaso to the Mariners for reliever Josh Lueke and a player to be named or…
