Theo says Cubs still interested in bringing back non-tendered 3B Ian Stewart.
A tiny piece of bone that was believed to be affecting a nerve was removed from Stewart's left wrist. According to Stewart, despite multiple MRIs over the last 18 months, the removed piece of bone wasn't pinpointed until an examination at the Cleveland Clinic shortly after he went on the disabled list on June 14.
I want to get some real news. I am hoping that ABTY and Marlin will be on tonight and tell us the rumors of the day.
#marlins are in trade talks with at least 2 teams for escobar
Soria is coming off Tommy John surgery, but it seems like the bar for relievers has been pretty well established. Hard to see anyone getting much more outside of Rafael Soriano. Maybe Mike Adams, but he's coming off a surgery season, too.Soria got $8M for 2 yrs with #rangers in agreed-upon deal.
Adams, Grilli and Uehara are all RHP.Theo just talked. No surprise Big name free agents still off in the distance. He's not philosophically opposed to platoons at 3rd or OF.
Sounds like will make a move or two. Kind of closing in. Maybe lefty reliever and/or non tendered player from other team.

Posting because he had been discussed by the forum. Jerry Crasnick:
Ricky Nolasco wants the #marlins to trade him, agent says.
Other rumors on the 1st day of the Winter Meetings:
*The Cubs have told RP Carlos Marmol that he is trade bait, but won’t just give him away. No surprise!
*The Cubs are looking at RP and Jason Grilli is one player on their list.
*The Cubs are expected to ‘kick the tires’ on OF Grady Sizemore. They would try to sign him to a low deal and try to get a high reward out of it. However, Sizemore is undergoing a minor surgery and is expected to miss the beginning of the season.
*Unconfirmed rumor: The Cubs and Braves had a meeting today, but we don’t know about what and what players were being tossed around.
Sean Burnett?/Manny Parra/J.P. Howell???
