I expect at this point we'll see some more stuff over the transom, and if I get it, I'll update this post if it happens today.
- The Giants signed Guillermo Mota to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. Hard to remember when he and Eric Gagne were the door-slammers in the Dodgers bullpen back in 2003.
- The Dodgers signed ex-Angel Ramon Ortiz to a minor-league deal plus an obligatory spring training invitation. As with Jeff Weaver, it's hard to imagine where he'll end up on the roster, or if he'll even make the 25-man this year. He certainly earned himself a nice footnote in Rockies history by retiring all three Padres he faced in game 163, one of the most exciting regular season games I've ever witnessed.
- Rotoworld reports the Mariners and Casey Kotchman have arrived at a salary agreement for a one-year deal, avoiding arbitration, in the amount of $3.5M.
- Update: The Angels announced their spring training non-roster invitee list, which includes such luminaries as Ryan Brasier, Tyler Chatwood, Hank Conger, and Ryan Mount.
Ortiza - an interesting foot note in Rox history, but a leagcy in Halo's history - just one of a select group of four guys to win a WS game (along with Donnely, Frankie, and some other guy whose name I've forgotten).
