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.
• 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.
