Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston reports that Jeff Banister will interview for the Astros' managerial job this week.

Banister was a special assistant with the Pirates in 2019 after being fired by the Rangers late in the 2018 season. He joins Joe Espada, Dusty Baker, Will Venable and Eduardo Perez as known candidates to replace A.J. Hinch.

Giants signed LHP Jerry Blevins to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Blevins posted a 3.90 ERA and 37/16 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings for the Braves last season. It's fair to question how useful the 36-year-old can be with the three-batter minimum being instituted, but on a minor league deal there's no risk.

Nolan Arenado said Monday that he has felt "a lot of disrespect" from the Rockies' front office.

Arenado was responding via text to comments in the Denver Post from general manager Jeff Bridich, who downplayed any potential Arenado trade in the near future. "There’s a lot of disrespect from people there that I don’t want to be a part of," Arenado said. "You can quote that." Arenado added, "You ask what I thought of Jeff’s quotes and I say I don’t care what people say around there. There is a lot of disrespect." The third baseman didn't want to elaborate on what he felt was disrespectful, but clearing the relationship between Arenado and the front office needs to be repaired. If they're unable to reconcile, a possible trade of the slugger could be back on the radar.

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that Mets quality control coach Luis Rojas looks like the current favorite to be the team's new manager.

Puma indicates that a big reason for Rojas being a favorite is that team executives are worried about how current minority owner and future majority owner Steve Cohen would perceive hiring somebody who wasn’t considered for the job when Carlos Beltran was hired. Rojas interviewed multiple times during the previous search and would also offer continuity for a club unexpectedly looking for a new manager less than a month before spring training. Eduardo Perez was runner-up for the job when Beltran was chosen, but Puma says Perez -- who will interview for the Astros' opening -- has yet to be contacted by the Mets this time around.

Twins pitching coach Wes Johnson said Monday that Brusdar Graterol will remain in a relief role for the time being.

Graterol remains one of the better starting pitching prospects in baseball, but the Twins broke him in at the major league level as a reliever last season and he'll remain in the bullpen for now. The 21-year-old threw just over 70 innings in 2019, so he wasn't going to be able to start for a full season, anyway. It's still possible that he is part of the Twins' rotation at some point in 2020.

Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich on Monday indicated that Nolan Arenado will not be dealt prior to spring training and trade talks involving the third baseman are off for now.

"With the season coming up and spring training on the horizon, we are going to start focusing on that," Bridich said. "We have listened to teams regarding Nolan and really nothing has come of it. We are going to move forward pretty much as we expected — with Nolan in the purple and black and as our third baseman. So we can put this to bed and collectively look forward to the upcoming season and work toward that." Arenado has been linked to the Cardinals, Rangers and Braves, but it appears he will stay put, at least for now. If the Rockies are out of contention again at the trade deadline, perhaps they will re-visit things. For fantasy purposes, it's good news that Arenado looks like he'll remain in Colorado.
