Thus far, the Winter Meetings have been fruitful in rumors and speculation but pretty barren in terms of actual moves made. The most notable free agent signing has been Andrew McCutchen to the Philadelphia Phillies, while the Chicago White Sox acquired Ivan Nova from the Pittsburgh Pirates and that’s been it.

On the Rays front, the status quo remained the same as reports yesterday were repeating what we already know, the Rays are interested in Nelson Cruz and Charlie Morton. Another name has now been confirmed to be of interest to the team after much speculation as Bob Nightengale and Ken Rosenthal reported that the Rays have been talking to the Martiners about Carlos Santana.
