I missed a couple of important things over the past few days because of the Christmas break so I wanted to point them out real quick.
- Nick Swisher signed a four-year, $56 million deal with the Cleveland Indians.
- The Mariners signed Raul Ibanez to a one-year, $2.75 million deal plus another potential $1.25 million in incentives.
- The Diamondbacks signed Cody Ross to a three-year, $26 million deal.
- The Marlins signed John Maine, who spent 2012 in the Yankees system, to a minor league deal.
- The Red Sox acquired Pirates closer Joel Hanrahan along with infielder Brock Holt for righties Mark Melancon and Stolmy Pimentel, first baseman Jerry Sands, and infielder Ivan De Jesus Jr.
