    Lance Lynn Nov 20 5:50pm ET

    The Milwaukee Brewers are showing interest in almost every prominent free-agent starting pitcher this winter with Jimmy Nelson (shoulder) expected to miss a big chunk of the 2018 season, according to sources. Their interest includes St. Louis Cardinals free-agent starter Lance Lynn, although they'd ultimately prefer a starter that misses bats. Lynn had a fine season coming back from Tommy John surgery (3.43 ERA, 1.23 WHIP), but his velocity was down and he registered a career-low 7.4 K/9. Despite the lower velocity and strikeout numbers, Lynn could post even better numbers another year removed from elbow reconstruction and will certainly be a fallback option for the Brew Crew.

    Harold Ramirez Nov 20 5:33pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays OF Harold Ramirez and RHP Chris Rowley were outrighted off the 40-man roster Monday, Nov. 20.

    J.D. Martinez Nov 20 5:20pm ET

    The Toronto Blue Jays could be a dark-horse candidate to sign Arizona Diamondbacks free-agent outfielder J.D. Martinez. With Toronto set on letting free-agent outfielder Jose Bautista walk, they have also looked at Cleveland Indians free-agent outfielder Jay Bruce to fill the void in right field. Martinez had a monster season, hitting .303 with 45 home runs and 104 RBI while splitting time with the Tigers and Diamondbacks, and his agent, Scott Boras, is targeting a long-term deal worth over $200 million this winter, so he may be too expensive for the Blue Jays. Martinez will be a coveted early-round slugger in fantasy no matter where he lands, but the hitter-friendly confines of Rogers Centre might be the most attractive landing spot.

    Chandler Shepherd Nov 20 3:13pm ET

    Boston Red Sox LHP Jalen Beeks, RHP Chandler Shepherd and RHP Ty Buttrey were added to the 40-man roster Monday, Nov. 20.

    Kelvin Gutierrez Nov 20 3:13pm ET

    Washington Nationals 3B Kelvin Gutierrez and RHP Jefry Rodriguez were added to the 40-man roster Monday, Nov. 20.

    Hisashi Iwakuma Nov 20 2:30pm ET

    Seattle Mariners free-agent starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma said the team has offered him an opportunity to return in 2018. Iwakuma, 36, made just six starts last season due to shoulder issues and went 0-2 with a 4.35 ERA, 16 strikeouts and 12 walks, so he's unlikely to receive anything more than a minor league deal loaded with incentives. The veteran right-hander also wound up having shoulder surgery in late September, although he hopes to be ready to pitch next season. Given Iwakuma's age, lack of strikeout potential and extensive injury history, he's nowhere near the fantasy radar in 2018.

    Jake Arrieta Nov 20 2:30pm ET

    The Milwaukee Brewers are showing interest in Chicago Cubs free-agent starting pitcher Jake Arrieta as they look to upgrade their rotation with Jimmy Nelson (shoulder) expected to miss the start of the 2018 season, according to a source. Arrieta had a down year by his recent standards in 2017, going 14-10 with a 3.53 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 8.7 K/9 in 30 starts, but he will be one of the most sought after free-agent pitchers this winter, and he's surely be a huge upgrade to Milwaukee's current rotation. Arrieta should remain a strong second fantasy starter next year, wherever he ends up.

    Josh Donaldson Nov 20 2:20pm ET

    The Toronto Blue Jays have yet to make a multi-year extension offer to third baseman Josh Donaldson, who will become a free agent after the 2018 season, according to a source. Even though Donaldson played in just 113 games in 2017 due to injury, he still managed to hit .270 with 33 home runs and 78 RBI in 415 at-bats for the Jays. With better health in 2018, he should easily surpass those numbers as a high-end third base option for fantasy owners.

    Giancarlo Stanton Nov 20 2:20pm ET

    The San Francisco Giants and Miami Marlins have exchanged names in a potential deal for outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, according to a source. The Giants would presumably send second baseman Joe Panik, starting pitcher Tyler Beede and outfielder Chris Shaw to the Marlins in exchange for Stanton and second baseman Dee Gordon. Nothing is imminent, and this potential swap is strictly hypothetical at the moment, but it would mainly be a move to dump Stanton's and Gordon's big salaries as the Marlins look to rebuild. Stanton reportedly has a preference to play on the West Coast where he's from, so the Giants could be a tempting landing spot for the National League MVP. Stay tuned, as Stanton's destination this offseason is the biggest story around.

    Giancarlo Stanton Nov 20 1:50am ET

    The St. Louis Cardinals have reportedly made an official trade offer to the Marlins for National League Most Valuable Player Giancarlo Stanton. The Cardinals were one of the first teams reported to have interest in the Miami slugger. Already with a surplus of outfielders, one can assume that one of them would be part of any package heading back to the Marlins. The Cardinals reportedly also offered one of their top young pitchers in earlier trade talks. Whether or not Stanton would waive his full no-trade clause to go to St. Louis remains to be seen. Giancarlo remains very likely to be traded this offseason, but it doesn't seem like a deal will happen soon.

    Carlos Santana Nov 19 3:40pm ET

    Cleveland Indians free-agent first baseman Carlos Santana is drawing interest from the Philadelphia Phillies, according to a source. This would be an odd fit, as prospect Rhys Hoskins is slated to take over full-time duties at first base in 2018, although they could move him to left field if they land Santana. The former catcher hit .259/.363/.455 with 23 home runs and 79 RBI in 571 at-bats with the Tribe in 2017. He's mainly useful for his on-base skills as a switch-hitter for fantasy owners.

    Tyler Chatwood Nov 19 2:20pm ET

    Colorado Rockies free-agent starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood is drawing widespread interest from teams this winter, and one source predicted that the soon-to-be 28-year-old right-hander could land a multi-year deal. Chatwood went 8-15 with an uninspiring 4.69 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 25 starts for Colorado last season, but he had a 3.49 ERA and .695 opponents' OPS away from hitter-friendly Coors Field. Chatwood would no doubt benefit from a move away from the mile-high city, but he'd still probably be no better than a back-end rotation option for owners in deep mixed and single-universe leagues.

    Alex Colome Nov 19 12:50pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Colome "figures to be a hot topic and likely to be dealt" this offseason, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. Colome is entering his first of three arbitration years this winter, so it makes sense that the cost-conscious Rays would be looking to trade him while his value is high. Slated to turn 29 next month, Colome boasts a 2.63 ERA and 129/38 K/BB ratio across 123 1/3 frames over the last two seasons as the Rays' closer. He led all of baseball with 47 saves in 2017. The Cardinals are one teams that's already been connected to Colome.
