The Orioles were in the conversation to sign Josh Hamilton early on, but the re-signing of Nate McLouth will likely be how they address left field. The rotation remains unchanged, as the group of five that found its stride down the stretch appears set as the team's staff in 2013.
Chicago White Sox
Re-signing Jake Peavy was a big move to start the offseason, but the White Sox haven't done much since then that would make one think they have a shot at the Detroit Tigers or even the Kansas City Royals now in the AL Central.
Jeff Keppinger was added to play third base, and the team will likely look to add a setup man to replace Brett Myers, but the White Sox have undoubtedly fallen behind in the division with their lack of activity.
For a team likely headed into a major rebuilding effort, the Cleveland Indians are thin on minor league talent but have plenty of movable pieces on their roster.
They finally broke the seal on what many expect to be a number of trades this offseason, dealing Shin-Soo Choo in a three-team trade that netted them center fielder Drew Stubbs and right-hander Trevor Bauer (h/t CBSSports). It's a great start, but there is still a lot of work to do before spring rolls around.
The Astros weren't expected to do much this offseason, and so far their only move of note was trading closer Wilton Lopez to the Colorado Rockies for pitching prospect Alex White in a deal that could go either way.
A veteran is expected to be added to DH, but for now the team's offseason has been a sideways move at best.
The Twins unloaded a pair of solid trade chips in Denard Span and Ben Revere, and in return they got a top-tier pitching prospect in Alex Meyer and a pair of arms in Vance Worley and Trevor May. That makes them look better long-term, but the team needs more than newly signed free agent Kevin Correia and Worley to be added to their rotation if they want to compete.
The Twins' offseason could go either way at this point.
New York Yankees
The Yankees brought back a trio of key players from last year's team in re-signing Andy Pettitte, Hiroki Kuroda and Mariano Rivera, but there was still a lot of work to be done after the winter meetings came and went.
Kevin Youkilis was signed to a one-year deal on Tuesday to fill in for Alex Rodriguez at third base (h/t CBSSports), but the team still needs to figure out right field, catcher and DH.
The A's have stayed pat so far this offseason, as they acquired outfielder Chris Young from the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-team trade early in the offseason but have done little since.
Adding a shortstop to upgrade over Adam Rosales will likely be enough for the offseason to be a win, provided they don't overpay greatly.
