Transactions Report: Kevin Millar

Milwaukee Brewers: Agreed to terms with pitchers Eduardo Morlan and Cody Scarpetta on one-year contracts. One-year deals for two minor-leaguers. Morlan was a Rule 5 draftee out of the Rays' organization last year.

Toronto Blue Jays: Signed infielder Kevin Millar to a minor league contract. Millar, 37, chose the Jays over the Yankees. He had 534 ABs with the Orioles in 2008, but had career lows in BA/OBP/SLG (.234/.323/.394). Expect him to backup at first and get some ABs at DH.
