Listing Off-Season MLB Moves

Franklin Gutierrez ... traded to Seattle.

The Indians made some key acquisitions this winter by signing free agents Kerry Wood and Carl Pavano and trading for Mark DeRosa. Other teams have filled roster spots through trades or free agency, too. There's still a long list of available free agents who are discovering the global economy may prevent them from getting the payday they expected. Seems like more moves will be coming along soon.
