A question to readers: Do you know where to find accurate player statistics (with English text) for Korea Baseball Organization or the Chinese Professional Baseball League in Taiwan? We're in the process of editing our Super Register and that's a question that comes up each year.
Check out the Transactions Glossary for the key to deciphering the various inactive lists presented here.
Signed: RHP Chris Resop
Boston Red Sox
Signed: C Gustavo Molina
Chicago White Sox
Signed: OF Brady Clark
Outrighted to Triple-A, removed from 40-man: C Cole Armstrong
Signed: RHP Jose Arredondo
After a splendid rookie season with the Angels in ’08, Arredondo appeared poised to take over a high-leverage bullpen role in Anaheim. But then Arredondo slumped badly in ’09 as he dealt with elbow discomfort. The club non-tendered him in December, and the Reds signed him even knowing he'll miss 2010 while he recovers from Tommy John surgery.
Signed: 2B Mark Grudzielanek
Signed: C Robby Hammock, C Paul Lo Duca, OF Jay Payton
Signed: RHP Ruddy Lugo, LHP Sam Narron, C Mike Rabelo, 1B Cesar Nicolas
A Diamondbacks' fifth-round pick in ’04, Nicolas spent last season playing indy ball after Arizona released him during spring training. The 27-year-old batted .335 with 14 homers and 103 RBIs in 96 games for Grand Prairie of the American Association. He hit well in 10 games in the Atlantic League to close the year.
Signed: RHP Brian Lawrence (re-signed), 3B Lee Mitchell (re-signed), OF Jason Delaney
Signed: RHP B.J. Hagen, RHP Shane Loux, RHP Jared Wells, OF Cory Sullivan
Hagen, 23, signed his first deal with an affiliated club after playing in the Frontier League last year. The Charlotte product appeared in 29 games for Traverse City, striking out 38 and walking 16 in 40 innings. Opponents hit just .178 as he compiled a 2.48 ERA.

Reinstated from inactive list: RHP Andrew Kerth
Signed: 3B Lee Soto, SS Travis Adair
Soto earned notoriety as a Blue Jays farmhand as a $600,000 bust. He signed out of the Dominican in April ’05 and hit all of .201/.248/.293 in 539 pro plate appearances through ’08.
Toronto Blue Jays
Signed: RHP Shawn Hill, RHP Steven Register, RHP Bob Zimmermann, OF Jeremy Reed
A native of Mississauga, Ontario, Hill returns to his Canadian roots. Injuries have hampered the 28-year-old to the point where the Blue Jays would rejoice if he gave them 97 effective innings, as he did the Nationals in ’07.
Zimmermann returns to affiliated ball after spending his ’09 with York of the Atlantic League. The results weren't pretty: 4.43 ERA in 38 games, 61-to-60 strikeout-to-walk ratio and seven homers in 89 innings.
