Player Notes
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Astros are a "sleeper team" when it comes to a potential landing spot for Cole Hamels.

Advice: The Astros have been aggressive in retooling their bullpen this winter, but they could use help in the rotation, as well. Hamels has a no-trade list and it's unclear if Houston is on it, so it's possible they'd have to agree to pick up his $20 million option for 2019 in order to make a deal work. Cafardo lists the Cubs, Red Sox, Dodgers, Padres, Rangers and possibly the Giants as having interest in Hamels.

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports the Dodgers and Phillies discussed Chase Utley in the course of Jimmy Rollins negotiations.

Advice: Obviously the deal appears to be done without Utley being included, but it's interesting nonetheless. The Phillies have begun to tear it down, and the 30-year-old Utley doesn't appear to be exempt from the rebuild. Utley is due $90 million over the next four seasons, but he would still be easier to move than some of the Phillies big chips.

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Red Sox haven't reengaged the Phillies regarding a trade for Cole Hamels since missing out on Jon Lester.

Advice: It's only been a little over 12 hours since Lester made his decision to sign with the Cubs, so this ultimately doesn't mean much. The Red Sox match up well in a deal for Hamels and the two sides will almost certainly talk soon.

Jayson Stark of ESPN hears that the Giants are interested in a trade for Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels.

Advice: This means that all three teams who missed out on Jon Lester (also including the Red Sox and Dodgers) are expected to be involved for Hamels. The Phillies wouldn't have it any other way. Things have been quiet for Hamels thus far, but it should heat up very soon. However, the combination of money owed to Hamels and the prospects required to make a deal could limit the number of teams involved.

Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston hears that the Phillies are not actively trying to move Cole Hamels at this week's Winter Meetings.

Advice: They really don't need to be. The Phillies could just wait to see how the free agent starting pitcher market plays out (especially in regard to Jon Lester and Max Scherzer) before getting serious about moving Hamels. There's no sense of urgency to do it this week.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that pursuing a trade for Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels is likely the "Plan B" for the Red Sox if they are unable to sign free agent left-hander Jon Lester.

Advice: However, Rosenthal hears that it's "not out of the question" that the Red Sox could end up landing both. Hamels would come with a significant cost in prospects, but the Red Sox match up well with the Phillies as a potential trade partner. The 30-year-old southpaw is owed $96 million over the next four seasons with a $24 million option for 2019, which is a very solid value in this market.
