The Rays are expected to have interest in catcher Chris Gimenez after he cleared waivers.

Given the injuries to Ryan Hanigan and the lack of production from Jose Molina, Gimenez could be a nice fit for the Rays. They'll see if they can work out some sort of trade.

Mark Mulder said he began throwing again this week and plans to try his comeback again next year.

Mulder signed a minor league deal this spring with the Angels but tore his achilles ending his season. The 37 year old Mulder last pitched in 2008 for the Cardinals but hasn't been effective since 2005.

The Oakland Athletics will not sign free-agent 2B Scott Sizemore (Yankees) for the time being despite some interest, but the team could pursue him in the offseason.

With Nick Punto on the disabled list, the A's could use a utility infielder for the time being, but the team has decided that they will continue to move forward with the players they already have. Sizemore recorded just 16 at-bats in six games for the Yankees in 2014, hitting .313 with four RBI and three runs scored.

Jim Johnson has signed with a team, but it's not the Orioles.

He had worked out for the Orioles, so this is somewhat of a surprise. We will provide more details as they become known.

Free agent RHP Jim Johnson threw a 10-minute side session Monday in front of Scott McGregor at Orioles complex in Sarasota.

Orioles rehab pitching coordinator Scott McGregor oversaw Johnson's work out and said it went well. The O's are looking to sign Johnson to a minor league contract but there's nothing official yet. Johnson posted a 6.92 ERA in 40 1/3 innings this season with the A's, who released him on August 1.

Jim Johnson will throw a side session Monday at the Orioles spring training complex.

Johnson was traded this past off-season from Baltimore to Oakland but was recently released after having a terrible season which saw him lose his closing role with Oakland after posting a 4-2 record but with a 7.14 ERA.

Free-agent OF Alfonso Soriano (Yankees) has been contacted by a few team since being released but has told friends that he expects to take the rest of the season off and then consider a comeback next season.

After averaging 30 home runs and 99 RBI over the last three season, Alfonso Soriano failed to get it going this season. In 226 at bats for the Yankees, Soriano hit six home runs and 23 RBI, with a .221 average.

The Cardinals are working to sign free agent catcher A.J. Pierzynski.

If the Cardinals locker room can withstand the abrasive personality of Pierzynski, then he makes a lot of sense for them. With Yadier Molina likely out for the duration of the regular season, they are in dire need of a strong veteran presence behind the plate. Stay tuned for a signing update.

Reds GM Walt Jocketty noted Sunday how "surprisingly quiet" free agency has been for his team so far, but that could change soon. The team will discuss potentially adding Dan Uggla.

Uggla had been a disastrous signing for the Braves who really only got one good half out of Uggla after they signed him to a big free agent deal in 2011. He was released earlier this week after losing his job to Tommy LaStella earlier this season and many should wonder what exactly he has left to offer a team other than a high strikeout rate and a poor batting average.
