From CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman on Twitter …

Morales batted just .218/.274/.338 with eight home runs and 42 RBI in 98 games this past season between the Mariners and Twins, but he’s only 31 years old and he tallied 23 homers and 80 RBI in 2013 for Seattle. A power-friendly environment like Arlington, Texas would be a good place for the DH to revitalize his career.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Red Sox are “openly listening” to offers for Rick Porcello. He says that the idea is to shed some salary for bullpen help, though just yesterday Dave Dombrowski said he was not planning on spending a lot of money on the bullpen this winter so who friggin’ knows?

Porcello posted a 4.28 ERA in 33 starts this past season. He is owed $21 million in 2019 and will be a free agent this time next year. Seems hard to imagine a deal that makes sense for him, but I suppose anything can happen.
