New roundup

Yoslan Herrera finally signed his contract with us, so whatever issues there were over his physical must've gotten cleared up. Craig Stansberry was DFA'd to make room on the 40-man for Herrera.

We also apparently managed to sign Masumi Kuwata to a minor league deal. I assume he figured he'd have the best shot at making our team right out of camp.

Yes, Alexis Rios might be available on the trade market (ESPN insider link). No, I don't think the Blue Jays would take Paul Maholm for him like they would've last winter. Maybe I'm wrong (Olney does say they're looking for a fourth starter). If I am, DL better pull the trigger and quick.
