Executives and agents arrived Monday at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas for the 2018 MLB Winter Meetings, but they didn't do much on Day 1.

That's sure to change Tuesday, as teams continue conversations that might allow them to alter their rosters, through signings and/or trades. Both Bay Area teams could be busy: The Giants, under new president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi, have confirmed their interest in adding two more outfielders, and the A's are focused on starting pitchers, along with depth at catcher and second base.
Now, it's time to see what deals will be struck. Keep it here throughout Day 2 of the Winter Meetings for the latest live news, rumors and trade chatter.
4:42 p.m. PT: Yasiel Puig to ... Cincinnati? That's a real possibility, according to Fancred's Jon Heyman and The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.
Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow wouldn't mind seeing Puig in San Francisco, but he doesn't think that's a real possibility.
4:20 p.m. PT: A's general manager David Forst said Monday that "you don't ever make it your goal to actually do something" at the Winter Meetings, but he may be contradicting his own advice.
Oakland announced its first signing of the Winter Meetings: Catcher Chris Herrmann.
They also appear to be headed in a different direction at second base, according to NBC Sports California's Ben Ross. One possible name? Bay-Area native Troy Tulowitzki.
11:58 a.m. PT: Andrew McCutchen just got PAID! According to multiple reports, Cutch will get a three-year contract worth $50 million from the Phillies. The deal will also include a club option.
11:30 a.m. PT: The Red Sox just won the World Series, and now they want to shed some payroll. According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, some rival executives are wondering if Boston will try to move former Cy Young winner Rick Porcello.
Would the Giants or A's be interested in Porcello? With his $21.125 million salary for 2019, it's not likely either would be able to add him without the Red Sox kicking in some money.
11:22 a.m. PT: Is Andrew McCutchen headed back to Pennsylvania? According to NBC Sports Philadelphia's Jim Salisbury, the Phillies have expressed interest in signing the former Giants outfielder.
11:11 a.m. PT: The A's loved having veteran Jonathan Lucroy as their backstop this past season, but it's possible they could be looking for an upgrade in 2019. Could that mean a run at Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto?
11:04 a.m. PT: The Pirates and White Sox made their trade official. Right-handed pitcher Ivan Nova is going to Chicago, while 19-year-old right-handed pitcher Yordi Rosario and $500,000 in internation signing bonus pool money will go to Pittsburgh.
10:03 a.m. PT: Does Jerry Dipoto sleep? A little more than a week after acquiring Carlos Santana from the Phillies, the Mariners GM reportedly talked to the Marlins about the first baseman/designated hitter last week.
9:58 a.m. PT: We have an arms race in the AL Central! OK, maybe not.
But one day after the Tigers added Tyson Ross, the White Sox reportedly will acquire Ivan Nova from the Pirates.
9:26 a.m. PT: On Monday night, Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi told reporters that he let Hunter Strickland go in part because of the depth in the bullpen. But The Athletic's Mark Saxon is reporting that the Giants are receiving a lot of calls on left-hander Will Smith.
9:22 a.m. PT: With Patrick Corbin off the market, lefty JA Happ is one of the top free-agent starting pitchers still available. Happ's decision could come soon if he receives a three-year offer.
9:21 a.m. PT: While the Phillies pursue top free agents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, they reportedly are trying to beef up their pitching staff.
8:14 a.m. PT: Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar finished second on the AL Rookie of the Year voting, but he might not get a second season in the Bronx. According to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, Andujar could be moved in a potential blockbuster deal with the Mets and Marlins. If the Yankees traded Andujar, that could open the door for them to sign free agent Manny Machado.
7:06 a.m. PT: The Yankees might be serious about their pursuit of shortstop Manny Machado. On Monday, GM Brian Cashman said he has spoken several times with Machado's agent. Now, they reportedly have reached out to former Orioles manager Buck Showalter for his thoughts on the Machado.
The Yankees are showing great hustle in their background work on Machado ...
7:03 a.m. PT: Late on Monday night, rumors started to swirl that the Mets, Yankees and Marlins were working on a blockbuster trade that would send catcher J.T. Realmuto to Queens, All-Star starter Noah Syndergaard to the Bronx and prospects to Miami.
But the Marlins are downplaying that potential deal, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.
6:57 a.m. PT: With Patrick Corbin officially signed, the Nationals might look to move starter Tanner Roark. According to Yahoo's Jeff Passan, Washington has talked to several teams about a deal for Roark, who is projected to make $9.8 million in arbitration.
Could Roark be a fit with the A's? They need several starters to fill out the rotation, and the teams have made a lot of trades over the last decade. Stay tuned ...
