The offseason finally feels like it's in feel swing, doesn't it? Friday brought two trades and one free agent signing plus a whole bunch of juicy rumors.
As always, make sure you head over Jon Heyman's blog for the latest and greatest. Today he has news about a potential reunion between Carlos Beltran and the Royals. Here's a recap of the rest of Friday's action.
• ROSTER CUTS
RUMORS & SPECULATION
• Nationals: They want to add a starting pitcher but do not want to forfeit their first round pick in next summer's draft. That rules out RHP Ubaldo Jimenez, RHP Ervin Santana and RHP Hiroki Kuroda, but leaves RHP Matt Garza and RHP Ricky Nolasco in play. (Washington Post)
