Welcome to the Dump.

36-year-old Mark Mulder to attempt return to action - ESPN

Good luck to him. If he happens to land somewhere, I'd bet it'd be as a reliever.

Trumbo to D-backs in three-team trade -

The Angels also send minor leaguers Brandon Jacobs (OF) and A.J. Schugel (RHP) to Arizona; D-backs send outfielder Adam Eaton to the White Sox and the Angels receive pitchers Tyler Skaggs and Hector Santiago. In 2010, the Angels traded Skaggs to Arizona as part of a package for Dan Haren.

I'm sure there will be some people who will start referring to MLB as "No Fun League 2.0".

Mariners add Logan Morrison, Corey Hart - MLBTR

They now have, what, four first basemen? Morrison arrives from Miami via trade in exchange for minor league pitcher Carter Capps. Hart signs a one-year deal worth $6 million with incentives.

Mets sign Bartolo Colon - NY Post

Two years, $20 million. Colon serves as the frontline starter for the Mets with Matt Harvey to miss all of 2014.

Tomo Ohka signs minor league deal with Jays - Bluebird Banter

Ohka is attempting a comeback as a knuckleballer. Taking the R.A. Dickey route, it seems. Ohka is another one of the last remaining former Expos, and previously pitched for Toronto in 2007.

Giants sign Michael Morse - CSN Bay Area

1 year, $5 million with incentives. He's capable of 30 HR, but is a liability on defense.

Joba Chamberlain signs with Tigers -

1 year, $2.5 million with incentives.

Texas Rangers pick Seahawks QB Russell Wilson in Rule 5 Draft - ESPN

I'm a little confused as to why they would do this.

Omar Infante signs four-year deal with Royals - ESPN

He's only the 519th former Brave to play in Kansas City. It's also too bad he didn't return to Atlanta.
