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.

The Toronto Blue Jays have checked in on free agent Alfonso Soriano to discuss the possibility of a deal, Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi confirmed Thursday.

With Adam Lind on the shelf and Melky Cabrera struggling, the Jays might find Soriano useful as a part-time DH. He still may have some usefulness against left-handed pitching. Not a lot, but at least some.

Alfonso Soriano said he hasn't decided what he will do, will take a week to think about it with his family; retirement is an option.

This could be the end of the road for the fifteen year veteran. He was excellent last season, but has struggled mightily in 2014. If Soriano does choose retirement, he will finish his career with 412 home runs, good for 50th on the all-time home run leaderboard.

Joe Saunders has cleared release waivers and is now a free agent. 

I wouldn't say it is a guarantee that Saunders gets a major league deal, but you can bet that he'll be able to find a spot within a minor league system. On occasion, Saunders has a decent game, but overall, he's terrible. If a team is using him in their rotation, they are truly desperate.

The Orioles will not offer Mark Hendrickson a contract but the door is open for him to join organization in another capacity.

Hendrickson last appeared in the MLB back in 2011 appearing in eight games for Baltimore. He appeared in 40 games for the Orioles Triple-A team last year before signing on to play in the Independent League this year.

Johnny Damon is still holding out hope to continue his playing career.

Damon's hope is likely of the false variety, but there is nothing wrong with dreaming. He last played in the majors in 2012 and is already 40 years old, so the chances of latching on with a big league club are slim. If this is in fact the end of the road for Damon, he will finish his career with a triple slash of .284/.352/.433, 235 home runs, and 408 stolen bases.

Free agent pitcher Mark Hendrickson threw for the Orioles on Tuesday.

Very confusing why the Orioles would have any interested in Hendrickson. He turned forty years old on Monday and hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2011. He has a career 5.05 ERA and his WHIP is astronomical so maybe the Orioles feel bad for the guy. That is the only reason I can think of about the O's giving him a tryout.

Phillies are one of the teams that reached out to free agent OF Grady Sizemore.

Sizemore was released from the Red Sox earlier this week. It makes no sense why the Phillies would interested in an old player like Sizemore, but then again, a lot of the things the Phillies do doesn't make sense.
