Carlos Quentin traded to White Sox

In the first deal of the winter meetings, outfielder Carlos Quentin has been traded from the Arizona Diamondbacks to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for first base prospect Chris Carter. The deal, which was announced on XM Radio, should become finalized later in the day.

According to the St. Petersburg Times and, the Nationals and Rays are working on a deal to send hot-headed outfielder Elijah Dukes to the Nationals. The teams have scheduled a 5 PM press conference, presumably to announce the details of this deal. I haven't been able to figure out who the Nationals are sending to the Rays, but I will keep digging.

In Mets news, Billy Beane has apparently told the Mets that they don't have the prospects to land either Dan Haren or Joe Blanton, reports Peter Gammons. This is probably just a ploy for the Mets to up their offer though, I would assume.

More to come later...
