Via agent Scott Boras, it doesn't sound like Harper, or interested teams, want a shorter term deal for the free agent: "Owners are really after his legacy, they're after building a brand around him, a team around him. I just don't think there is an appetite from ownership for those types of things. And everyone that wants Bryce wants to make sure he's going to be there a long time."

In his annual winter meetings address with reporters, agent Scott Boras said a Bryce Harper signing could come at any time -- or still take a while: "We've had a lot of meetings over the last 3 weeks. When you get to that point..something can happen quickly and then something can also happen in a matter of weeks...Bryce is open to a lot of different venues (teams). It's really about what a lot of owners have said to him about their commitment."

Cardinals manager Mike Shildt says Alex Reyes is rehabbing in Jupiter and so everything is going well and he's on schedule. He didn't want to get ahead of things, but said the club doesn't have a specific plan for him at this point and that Reyes could start, be a multi-inning guy or even a late-game option.

Cardinals manager Mike Shildt says rehabbing pitcher Alex Reyes is healthy and doing well. Shildt was noncommittal about what role Reyes might fill next season, saying "There is not a role he couldn't work within."

Talking about the transition of even more of the Braves' young arms to the big-league level, manager Brian Snitker spoke about how things have changed since his days as a Triple-A manager, saying, "(It used to be that) you never know how a player is going to perform when they see that third deck. Now, these kids come up and it doesn't faze them one bit. They think they are right where they are supposed to be."
