Hot Stove: Uribe, Pelfrey make their returns

The Mariners have been one of the most aggressive teams this offseason, signing Robinson Cano to a massive contract, then adding two more power bats at this week's Winter Meetings, in Corey Hart and Logan Morrison.

But there still could be more moves on the horizon, and one in particular makes a lot of sense, writes our Richard Justice. He believes Seattle should beef up its offense further by adding free agent Nelson Cruz.

In other news from around the league on Saturday:

• The Dodgers have filled the most significant hole in their lineup, agreeing to a two-year deal with free-agent third baseman Juan Uribe.

• The Marlins also held some interest in Uribe, so his signing leaves them looking at other options at third base, writes MLB.com's Joe Frisaro.

• The Twins added their third starting pitcher so far this offseason, agreeing to bring back righty Mike Pelfrey on a two-year deal. Minnesota, still looking to add another arm, is unlikely to sign Matt Garza but is open to Bronson Arroyo, according to a tweet from Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com and MLB Network.

• The Mets announced their two-year deal with Bartolo Colon, officially adding the 40-year-old to their starting rotation.

• The Braves could be close to signing free-agent right-hander Gavin Floyd, according to a report from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Floyd, coming off Tommy John surgery, is expected to return to action in May.

• With free-agent second baseman Omar Infante set to sign with the Royals, the Yankees' interest in a trade for the Cubs' Darwin Barney "may pick up," according to a tweet from Bruce Levine of Chicago's WSRC-AM and 670thescore.com. The teams held earlier talks about Barney, Levine writes.

• The Royals signed three players, including reliever Cory Wade, to Minor League deals.
