Here is a quick round-up of the latest most-relevant hot stove rumors from the Winter Meetings in Dallas:
The Mets met with the agents for Endy Chavez, Cesar Izturis, and Ronny Cedeno today.
The Mets will likely send a scout to watch free-agent Joel Zumaya throw next week.
The Cardinals are willing to trade Jake Westbrook, but are most eager to deal Kyle Lohse.
The Nationals and Rays have discussed OF BJ Upton.
Chris Young should be ready for Spring Training, despite shoulder surgery last summer.
The Rangers think the A’s are asking for too much in a deal for closer Andrew Bailey.
The Angels have interest in free agents Todd Coffey and Jason Isringhausen.
The Rockies will eat all of Huston Street’s $8 million if they can move him in a deal that brings back prospects.
Last month, CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman said the Mets, Blue Jays, Orioles, Marlins, Red Sox and Reds were all interested in Street, although Street’s feud with new bench coach Bob Geren is a deterrent for the Mets.
