— Player Notes
Advice: But the Giants would likely have to gut their farm system to pull off a deal and the two sides haven't even begun exchanging ideas. Price is drawing serious trade interest from several major league teams, but he's not a free agent until after the 2015 season so the Rays can be as patient as they want to be. Price, 28, owns a spectacular 3.19 career ERA, 1.16 career WHIP and 8.1 career K/9.

Advice: Which likely throws a wrench in Seattle's pursuit of the Rays left-hander. The agent, Bo McKinnis, said Price would be open to discussing a long-term deal with other teams -- just not the M's. The Dodgers, Rangers, Diamondbacks, Angels and Blue Jays are some of the clubs that have been tied to a potential Price trade this winter. He is under contractual control through the 2015 season.

Advice: Heyman adds that the Mariners "have a real opportunity" to land the left-hander. He reported Monday night that the M's believe Price "would be theirs" if they agree to include Taijuan Walker in a trade, but to this point they're squeamish to do so. They're also hesitant to include James Paxton in a deal, preferring to build a package around position players. However, the Rays really have no reason to budge unless Seattle agrees to give up Walker.

Advice: The Dodgers are reportedly one of the teams that is considering a trade for Rays' ace David Price. It could just be that Colletti is playing things close to the vest, but what he said Tuesday would jibe with a report from Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times that the Dodgers "don't plan to aggressively pursue Price." The Mariners and Rangers have also been connected to the lefty.

Advice: Heyman names those three teams the likely finalists for Price because they have been expressing the most interest in working out a trade and also because they actually possess the top prospects needed to pull a deal off with Tampa Bay. The Diamondbacks, Blue Jays, Pirates and Angels can be considered the primary darkhorses at this point. Price, 28, owns a spectacular 3.19 career ERA, 1.16 career WHIP and 8.1 career K/9. He is under contract through the 2015 season.

Advice: But Hernandez says the Dodgers "don't plan to aggressively pursue Price" because they're low on top prospects and don't want to completely deplete their farm system. Price is also drawing interest from the Mariners, Angels, Pirates, Rangers, Diamondbacks and Blue Jays. He's under Tampa Bay's control through 2015, so it's not a certainty that he will be traded this winter.

Advice: It makes sense, as the Mariners have been connected to Price and now appear ready to go for broke following the Robinson Cano signing. The M's will surely have to include top prospect Taijuan Walker in any deal, along with some other pieces. Price won't be a free agent until 2016, but he's due for another big raise in arbitration and seems likely to be dealt this winter.

Advice: The Mariners, Dodgers, Angels, Pirates, Rangers, Diamondbacks and Blue Jays are among the teams showing interest in the Rays' ace. Passan said the Mariners are believed to be a strong candidate for his services, with the team possibly being willing to part with top prospect Taijuan Walker in a deal. It'll take that kind of package to lure Price away from the Rays, as the team isn't forced to deal him this offseason if a deal isn't to their liking. Price's name will likely be a popular one at next week's winter meetings, assuming he's still in Tampa Bay at that point.
