Yankees trade Chase Headley & Bryan Mitchell to the Padres for Jabari Blash. Yankees dump $13MM for Free Agents or acquistions as they aim to be under the $197MM luxury tax threshold, leaving them around $30MM in budget.

 The Tampa Bay Rays could be a very active club with buzz that Evan Longoria and Alex Colome could be on the table with the potential to also move Chris Archer. With Th Red Sox/Yankess well set up and the Orioles/Blue Jays in the middle it makes great sense the Rays take the jump into a rebuild.

Matt Harvey could also be on his way out of NY. This is no surprise to the Baseball Babble team as we were told in confidence a few months ago that Harvey would not return to the Mets from a source with close ties to the team. The team was ready to move on from his off the field life which surfaced in the now famous “no-show” incident last season. Some early rumours suggest a releiver swap with the Orioles, or a Jurickson Profar swap with the Rangers.

So far its been quiet but that might change really quickly. Few new names being floated such as Jackie Bradley Jr. could be on the market, Alex Cobb is being hotly pursued by the Cubs and the Yankees would like to move Jacoby Ellsbury and are willing to eat some of the contract.

The Sizzle on Monday MLB Winter Meetings:

With the slow start to the offseason and the big moves in Shohei Ohtani going to the Angels and Giancarlo Stanton being traded to the Yankees, we can now expect a rush of signings and trades. The MLB Winter meetings kick into full gear on December 10th in Orlando Florida, these meetings always see big trades, notable free agent signings and lots of great quotes from manager and agents (mostly Scott Boras). The moves can happen fast and furiously during the meetings, with them about to kick into full gear a few moves have begun to trickle in.

Luke Gregerson – Cardinals – 2 years $11MM + Option

Brandon Morrow – Cubs – 2 years – $20-22MM + Option
