Dawson, nine others join free agent list

NEW YORK — NEW YORK -- Andre Dawson and the Chicago Cubs may be parting. The 38-year-old outfielder was one of nine players who filed for free agency yesterday, increasing the record total to 138. Dawson wanted to sign a contract extension during spring training, before the final season of his $6.6 million, two-year deal, but was rebuffed.

Meanwhile, Toronto's total of free agents increased to 12 when infielder Manuel Lee filed.
