American League

One of the great thing about the Winter Meetings in MLB isn’t the Winter Meetings, but the data you get with at the end of the season.

Case in point, the annual “Roster Book” lists every approved transaction to the date that the document is mailed to media members attending the off-season jewel event.

The following are all 218 American League transactions from the beginning of free agency to today (a separate post for the National League to follow)
