Today's minor moves..
- Luis Mendoza agreed to a two-year deal with the Nippon Ham Fighters for approximately $1MM per year, according to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star (on Twitter). Kansas City requested release waivers on Mendoza earlier in the week to allow him to pitch in Japan. Mendoza earned just $532K last season but our own Matt Swartz estimated that he would get $1MM in arbitration this winter. The 30-year-old posted a 4.72 ERA, 1.51 K/BB ratio and a 5.4 K/9 in 58 games during his tenure with KC.
