    Feb 1, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    Jan 29, 2010, 7:22 PM EDT

  8. Mariners add Byrnes to outfield picture

    Jan 29, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

    Outfielder Eric Byrnes is on his way to Seattle after signing a one-year deal Friday. Terms weren’t announced, but it’s certainly for the minimum, given that the Diamondbacks were on the hook for $11 million under the terms of the three-year, $30 million extension he signed in Aug. 2007. Since he came at such a…

  9. Setup man Brocail opts for retirement

    Jan 28, 2010, 6:36 PM EDT

    As expected, free agent Doug Brocail has chosen to retire, according to MLB.com’s Alyson Footer. Brocail, 42, was injured for much of 2009 and finished with a 4.58 ERA in 17 2/3 innings.

    Jan 28, 2010, 6:27 PM EDT

    The Kansas City Star’s Sam Mellinger says the Royals are showing some interest in Erik Bedard, though he thinks it’s unlikely that they’ll sign him.

  12. Edmonds should be threat to Hart, not Gomez

    Jan 28, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Never finding the kind of deal he wanted, even after he hit .256/.369/.568 in an 85-game stint with the Cubs, Jim Edmonds sat out last season. Now that his itch to play again outweighs his pride, he’s accepted a minor league contract in an attempt to make the Brewers. The initial thought will be that,…

  22. Rangers add Hall to catching corps

    It sounded like the Rangers wanted a legitimate alternative starting catcher because of the lingering questions about the health of Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s shoulder. Instead, what they ended up with on Friday was Toby Hall. Hall seemed to pretty much wreck his career when he opted to play through a torn labrum in 2007. He hit…

    Jan 22, 2010, 4:58 PM EDT

    It took eating $21 million of the $23 million he was owed over the next two years, but the Angels were able to move Gary Matthews Jr. on Friday. They even netted a decent piece in return, getting reliever Brian Stokes from the Mets. That makes it a clear win for GM Tony Reagins, who…
