NVM on Vazquez, he's going to decline and we get a pick!

According to Ken Davidoff of Newsday, veteran lefty Andy Pettitte is leaning toward returning to the Yankees for the 2011 season.

Not a shock. Pettitte dealt with a bad groin injury in the middle of 2010, but he still finished with a stellar 11-3 record, 3.28 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over 129 innings. He should be able to quickly land an incentive-laden one-year contract for next season and will again be a valuable fantasy starter.
........

The Cubs could pursue free agent Lance Berkman, according to MLB.com's Carrie Muskat.

According to Berkman, the Cubs are one of the teams that has talked to his agent, but the A's have been the "most aggressive" interested party. Oakland would want Berkman as a DH, while the Cubs would obviously use him as a first baseman. Berkman wants to return to the National League, so Chicago is definitely a possibility. Big Puma is coming off two straight disappointing seasons and he can't really hit left-handed pitching anymore, but he still draws walks and has a bit of pop left.

Report: Dontrelle Willis Signs With Reds

The Reds have signed Dontrelle Willis to a minor-league deal, according to ESPN.com, giving the left-hander another chance to revive his fading career.

Willis, who will turn 29 in January, finished second in NL Cy Young voting in 2005, and won 68 games during his first six seasons in the majors (all with Florida), but he's struggled since then.

After spending a mostly forgettable 2 1/2 years with the Tigers, Willis was designated for a.ssignment by Detroit in June and picked up by the Diamondbacks. A month later, Arizona cut ties with him and he finished 2010 in the Giants' minor-league system.

Between the Tigers and D'backs, Willis went 2-3 with a 5.62 ERA this year in 15 appearances, 13 of which were starts.

The Mets' Asking Price For Jose Reyes
By Ben Nicholson-Smith [November 24 at 4:37pm CST]

Jose Reyes is available, but the Mets want three or four players in exchange for their shortstop, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle (on Twitter). Reyes, 27, earns $11MM in 2011 before becoming a free agent. He hit .282/.321/.428 with 30 steals and 50 extra base hits in 603 plate appearances last year.

There's no indication that Mets GM Sandy Alderson is actively shopping Reyes, but there would be a market for him. Earlier today, Schulman reported that the Giants are focusing on finding a shortstop. Along with the Cardinals and Padres, they have interest in free agent Miguel Tejada. Tejada, Juan Uribe, Cesar Izturis Jason Bartlett, J.J. Hardy, Marco Scutaro and others are potentially available, but in general the shortstops available via trade or free agency aren't overly appealing.


the best thing for the giants to do is try to get bartlett, thats a win win, it gives tampa a new chance a shorstop without spensing money and allows them to probably sign jj putz for a cheap prize now that soriano is gone and might go to baltimore

Lol for an oft-injured, underperforming prima-donna SS with attitude problems who happens to be a FA after the year. Good luck Alderson!

diamondbacks acquired lhp zach duke from the pirates for a player to be named later.
Duke has always been touted as a guy with a lot of talent, but it has never exactly translated to the mound. He posted an ugly 8-15 record, 5.72 era and 1.65 whip over 29 starts this past season for pittsburgh, striking out only 96 batters and walking 51. He carries almost no fantasy value.
.....

dejan kovacevic of the pittsburgh post-gazette reports that the pirates are "deeply interested" in free agent lefty scott olsen.
Olsen was outrighted off the bucs' 40-man roster in early november and elected to become a free agent. He looked promising at times during the 2010 season but finished with a 5.56 era and 1.48 whip over 81 innings for the nationals. Perhaps a change of scenery will help him right the wrongs.
.....

the giants have joined the running for free agent infielder miguel tejada, according to espn deportes.
The cardinals were linked to tejada by the chicago tribune's phil rogers in late october and have maintained interest. The padres have also expressed a desire to re-sign the 36-year-old. Tejada batted just .269/.312/.381 over the course of the 2010 season, but he still has a bit of power and would make sense as a backup third baseman or shortstop if the price is right.

Rangers Have Some Interest In Mark Prior
By Zach Links [December 1 at 6:31pm CST]
Rangers General Manager Jon Daniels has some interest in bringing Mark Prior back for 2011, writes Richard Durrett of ESPN.com. Prior inked a minor league deal with the club just before the end of the 2010 season and pitched just one inning for their Triple-A affiliate.

"He's a free agent now and we have discussed him coming back," the GM said. "There’s a level of interest."

The Yankees will re-sign Mariano Rivera to a two-year, $30MM deal by tomorrow night, according to Christian Red of the New York Daily News. Rivera recently received a three-year offer worth more money from a rival team, but wanted to stay in pinstripes, even if it meant accepting a deal for fewer guaranteed years and less money. Agent Fernando Cuza confirmed that interested teams other than the Yankees have called about Rivera.
