Winter meetings updates

Editor's Note: ESPN.com baseball reporters Jayson Stark and Jerry Crasnick are at the winter meetings in New Orleans and will be providing reports throughout the day on all the scuttlebutt.

Guillen to Angels?: The Angels are closing in on a deal with free-agent outfielder Jose Guillen, meaning that Reggie Sanders will probably wind up playing right field in St. Louis. The Cardinals tried to sign Carl Everett, but he turned down their two-year, $6 million offer for a more lucrative deal with Montreal. -- Jerry Crasnick
