Just a few notes from around the big leagues to wrap up Day One of the Winter Meetings. Today brought no signing bigger than last night’s Jose Reyes deal.

• A report saying the Nationals offered C.J. Wilson a six-year deal was quickly shot down, and Jon Paul Morosi says the Red Sox are still in the hunt for Wilson. 

• Then again, maybe the Red Sox aren’t in the hunt. Ben Cherington said Boston isn’t going after any big-time free agent pitcher. That link has several other Red Sox notes from Pete Abraham.

• Former Yankees utility man Jerry Hairston Jr. has signed a two-year deal with the Dodgers. 

• Speaking of brief Yankees careers: Former Rule 5 pick Jamie Hoffmann was claimed off waivers by the Rockies.

The Twins are bringing back Matt Capps. The reliever market seems to be moving faster than any other with Papelbon, Bell, Broxton, Nathan and now Capps already signed.

• The starting pitcher market is moving slower, but the Dodgers are reportedly working toward a two-year deal with Aaron Harang. Might help set the market for second or third-tier starters.
