Kevin Youkilis has decided to retire.

Youkilis played 10 major league seasons with three teams and was a three-time All-Star. His best season came in 2008 when he hit .312 with 29 home runs and 115 RBI finishing 3rd in MVP voting for the Red Sox. Youkilis was a two time champion with the Red Sox earning a ring with their 2004 and 2007 World Series teams. He will also be remembered for his part in Money Ball where he was mentioned for his on-base ability and nickname The Greek God of Walks.

Former Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts announced that he is planning to retire.

Roberts, 37, was released in August by the Yankees after hitting .237 in 91 games. Although he was apparently offered contracts by two teams, he turned the deals down. The two-time all star has been in decline for several years now, and it looks like he no longer can play at a high enough level to motivate him to stay in the majors. Roberts has had a great career with the Orioles, spanning over 14-years, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him eventually return back to baseball in some form.

Roger Bernadina has elected to become a free agent and has been removed from the Dodger roster.

Bernadina barely got any playing time with the Dodgers, mainly because he is not that good. Bernadina is a utility player that can play multiple positions, but doesn't hit well enough to get regular at-bats.

Brennan Boesch and John Buck have both elected free agency.

Boesch had a some productive seasons with the Tigers a few years ago, but he has struggled to find a role having played just 50 games between two organizations since 2013. Buck played 32 games this season splitting time between the Mariners and Angels.

Corey Hart, as expected, opted for free agency over outright assignment.

Hart only saw action in 68 games this season, battling knee and hamstring injuries that limited his effectiveness. If the 32 year old outfielder can demonstrate he is healthy, some team will certainly be intrigued by his power and batting average potential.

Darin Mastroianni has elected to become a free agent.

The Blue Jays showed that they are much higher on Dalton Pompey, who has a chance to break camp as the team's center fielder in 2015. Dastroianni was a major bust in 2014, hitting just .116 over 21 games in Minnesota and Toronto, so will look to get a minor league deal and an invitation to spring training next season.

Dickerson was designated by the Indians but has declined the option to join their Triple-A team. On the year Dickerson had hit .224 with 12 runs, two home runs, six RBI and three stolen bases.

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.
