The Mets continue to negotiate with free-agent OF Curtis Granderson, who is seeking four years and $60 million, while the Mets are offering three years and roughly $45 million, according to multiple reports…

The Brewers traded OF Norichika Aoki to the Royals for LHP Will Smith, who Milwaukee preferred to Ike Davis, despite the Mets checking in on Aoki (Rosenthal).

The Marlins have agreed to sign free agent Rafael Furcal (Rosenthal, Dec. 5) to be their starting second baseman.

The Mets may have met with Robinson Cano’s agents, but he seems to be leveraging the Mariners against the Yankees to get the best deal…

The Orioles are pursuing free-agent outfielders Nelson Cruz and Shin-Soo Choo (Morosi), who the Yankees may turn to if they lose out on Cano (Nightengale). The Tigers prefer Choo (Feinsand).

The Dodgers re-signed free agent RHP Brian Wilson to a one-year, $10 million deal (Brown).
