This Week in Transactions: The Holiday Lull

Another free agent addition to the Twins rotation - Mike Pelfrey - Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

The source for all information on transactions for the 23rd through 29th of December.

Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of This Week in Transactions where we will note every transaction announced for the week beginning December 23rd and wrapping up the 29th. This time period is usually very quiet as players and executives spend time with their families for Christmas and the holidays. That is not to say things weren't active as there were still plenty of signings both foreign and domestic.
