January 28th: Acquired RP Aaron Heilman from the Mariners for RP Garrett Olsen and IF Ronny Cedeno.

February 2nd: Traded RP Michael Wuertz to the Athletics for OF Richnie Robnett and IF Justin Sellers.

July 30th: Acquired pitchers Tom Gorzelanny and John Grabow from the Pirates for pitchers Jose Ascaino and Kevin Hart and a third baseman prospect.

September 20th: OF Milton Bradley suspended for remainder of year by team for detrimental conduct.
