The Dodgers are closing in on a one-year contract with former All-Star closer Chris Perez, according to people familiar with the situation who spoke under the condition of anonymity because the deal hasn't been finalized. Financial terms of the prospective deal aren't known. Perez, 28, was an All-Star with the Cleveland Indians in 2011 and 2012 but was released Oct. 31. Perez was arrested on marijuana charges this year and lost his job as the Indians' closer. Armed with a fastball routinely clocked in the mid- to high 90s, Perez figures to be a late-inning reinforcement in a bullpen that includes closer Kenley Jansen and setup man Brian Wilson.

The redesigned Mac Pro has gone on sale, but good luck getting one anytime soon: Apple won't ship any until February. The company Thursday morning began taking orders for the two basic models, which cost $2,999 and $3,999. Apple's website quoted early customers shipping times of Dec. 30, then told some customers that it could ship the machine by January, according to 9to5Mac. After a few hours, the shipping time for both models was pushed back to February, the website said. PHOTOS: The top 10 tech gadgets of 2013 There are likely two major reasons for the lag time.

Fewer than 10 days remain until Christmas, and retailers are trying to make the most of the holiday crunch time by luring online shoppers with free delivery offers. Wednesday is Free Shipping Day, a last-minute consumption craze initiated in 2008 by entrepreneur Luke Knowles. Organizers say it's the last day for shoppers to order gifts online and have them sent - for free - by Christmas Eve. This year, more than 750 retailers have signed up to participate. Major names - REI, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and J.C. Penney, among them - are included, as are a slew of small Main Street vendors.

As of this writing, I have been on the road for 100 days, going around the world on a motorcycle trip that's been supported by other people's kindness.  I started in August at the famed Hollywood sign and have crossed three continents and, by journey's end, two huge bodies of water. This is the final day of the Asian leg of my journey as I head off across the Pacific Ocean on a container ship. Before I left on this epic journey I had called all the container lines of the world and asked for a free ride across the oceans so that my bright-yellow motorcycle, which I've dubbed Kindness One , and I could circumnavigate the globe.

Hot sauce manufacturer Huy Fong Foods cannot ship any more Sriracha and two other sauces it makes until mid-January because the California Department of Public Health has begun enforcing stricter guidelines for the company. Batches of the company's three sauces, Sriracha, Chili Garlic and Sambal Oelek, now must be held for 30 days before they can be shipped to food distributors and wholesalers. State regulators added the requirement earlier this year after a review of Huy Fong's production process.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.  - Jerry Dipoto turned Mark Trumbo into three arms and a bat. That is the work of a magician. Provided, of course, that the Angels get solid production from those three arms and a bat. If not, the Angels' general manager just made 30 home runs disappear, and maybe his job with it. On Monday, when the Angels arrived at the winter meetings, they had a three-man starting rotation. On Tuesday, they got to the minimum five, trading Trumbo to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-way deal that brought left-hander Tyler Skaggs from Arizona and left-hander Hector Santiago from the Chicago White Sox. That is Step 1. The Angels saved about $3 million in the trade, giving them about $18 million in available funds.

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon is outfitting a 647-foot cargo ship with high-tech equipment in an effort to safely destroy hundreds of tons of lethal chemical weapons agents that were collected in Syria after a deadly gas attack this summer sparked an international outcry. Two specially developed hydrolysis machines, which use water or bleach to neutralize the chemicals that produce nerve gases, have been installed aboard the Cape Ray at the U.S. naval base in Norfolk, Va., officials said Thursday.

Machinery was purring gently. Boxes of Samsung televisions were stacked like blocks atop pallets on a glossy concrete floor. A shift supervisor waved jauntily as he zipped by on a red motorized chariot. At 10 a.m. at the Target.com fulfillment center in Ontario, all seemed peaceful - even though it was a record-setting Cyber Monday. And this year, the online world's answer to Black Friday was attracting nearly as many shoppers as the four-day retail frenzy that preceded it. "It never really feels like chaos," general manager Melissa Montgomery said of the annual online shopping event.
