Troy Glaus may attempt a comeback. Glaus, 36, has not played since 2010.
Glaus contacted the New York Yankees about a contract according to Sweeny Mutri. Glaus says his body feels better after sitting out the last two seasons.

Cody Ransom also spoke to the Yankees about a contract. Ransom hit a career high 11 home runs last season but managed only a .220 batting average as he split time between Arizona and Milwaukee.

It just happens that the Atlanta Braves are in need of a left fielder, and they looking into the possibility of acquiring Mark Trumbo, Dave O’Brien tweeted. Danny Knobler reports that the Angels are “very likely” to trade either Trumbo [...]

None of them are worthy of their own post. So let's round them up...
1) Cards sign Ty Wigginton
He hits LH pitching pretty good. He seems to be a good clubhouse guy. He's ready to accept his role as a utility bench guy that works the corners. He gets 5 million dollars...
5 million dollars? At least...
