8 a.m. ET: Day 1 of the winter meetings in Nashville was a little slow, but the action began in earnest on Day 2. The Red Sox continued to be the most active team on the free-agent market so far this offseason. They had already hauled in Mike Napoli, and on Tuesday they agreed to a three-year, $39 million contract — mirroring that of Napoli — with outfielder Shane Victorino. The former Phillie and Dodger figures to slot into right field for the Red Sox. But then again, Cody Ross is still out there, and Boston hasn’t ruled him out yet. Likewise, word also got out that the Sox are at least open to the idea of trading Jacoby Ellsbury. So Victorino’s versatility could come into play, and all the pieces of the Red Sox’ offseason are still very much fluid. Elsewhere, Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke — the two prizes of this year’s free-agent class — are still out there. On Tuesday the Dodgers emerged as the clear frontrunner for the right-handed starter Greinke, but the Rangers are apparently still in on both players. Marco Scutaro reportedly signed a three-year, $24 million deal with the Giants, giving them stability at shortstop moving forward. Dan Haren signed with the Washington Nationals on a one-year agreement, bolstering their pitching. And, at the very end of Tuesday, the Marlins flipped the recently acquired Yunel Escobar to Florida’s other team. What does Wednesday have in store? Well, stick with us here at NESN and your Winter Meetings Day 3 Live Blog. We’ll have it all covered for you.
