Mike Mordecai - 3B - FLA
Although he's taken a managing job in the minors, Mike Mordecai's career probably isn't over yet. He's likely to rejoin the Marlins bench in September.
Mordecai is just 10 days short of 10 years service time, which would give him a nicer pension (and qualify him for the Hall of Fame!). Dec. 24 - 4:11 am et

Shane Spencer - OF - Yankees
Shane Spencer has signed a one-year deal to play for the Hanshin Tigers of Japan.
The Yankee shine that kept Spencer receiving major league contracts when similar players received minor league deals finally wore off about the same time he was arrested for drunk driving in July. The one-year deal he's getting is worth about $580,000. Dec. 23 - 7:59 pm et

Reds signed LHP Eric Milton, who had been with the Philadelphia Phillies, to a three-year contract.
It's nice to see the Reds signing a big-name free agent. It's just too bad they picked one of the game's most overrated players to spend their money on. Milton's flyball tendencies won't play well in Great American. He does improve the team, but the Reds will regret this a year from now.
Todd Hollandsworth - OF - CHC
Cubs re-signed outfielder Todd Hollandsworth to a one-year contract.
Hollandsworth, 31, hit .318/.392/.547 in 148 AB before suffering a season-ending shin injury in July. He'll probably be the Cubs' fourth outfielder, but he could compete with Jason Dubois for the starting job in left if no veteran is acquired. Dec. 27 - 1:52 pm et
Dustan Mohr (OF) SF has agreed in principle to a one-year deal with the Rockies that should be signed after he passes a physical, according to the Rocky Mountain News.
