Zim becomes free agent again, for the moment

Major League Baseball has rejected the minor-league contract reliever Jeff ZImmerman signed with Texas. Apparently, Texas signed him to the deal despite not offering him arbitration. That is a no-no.

Technically, Texas can't sign Zimmerman until May 1st, but they may ask the other clubs for permission to sign him when Spring Training starts. It's no lock, but I'd guess that Zim ends up in Texas when the dust settles.
