Catching up:

Jason Johnson goes to the Seibu Lions. In Japanese, "Jason Johnson" translates to "not Daisuke Matsuzaka.

The Nationals will attempt to reanimate the careers of Jerome Williams and Brandon Claussen.

Richard Hidalgo will try a comeback with the Astros.

The Royals are giving the "other" Alex Gonzalez a minor league deal.

Tomas Perez will give it a go with the Cubs.

Jeff Nelson signed with the Yankees for the sole purpose of making people believe that he retired as a Yankee. Sorry, Jeff, you last played in the majors with the White Sox.

Colorado acquired Rodrgio Lopez from the Orioles in exchange for two minor leaguers.

Scott Schoeneweis agreed to a 3-year, $10.8 million contract with the Mets.

Some people avoided arbitration and I'm too lazy to list them.
