Transaction Action: Oakland Signs Ben Sheets to a 1-yr, $10M Guaranteed Deal PDF Print E-mail
Free Agency, Trades, and Signings
Written by Joe Tetreault   
Tuesday, 26 January 2010 16:00

CBS Sports' Danny Knobler reports that the A's have agreed on a one year deal with free agent starter Ben Sheets that will pay the righty a guaranteed $10 million for 2010. The contract also contains incentive clauses that could boost the value of the deal should Sheets remain healthy.

Sheets was unable to do that in 2009, missing the entire year recovering from elbow surgery. Sheets' 2008 was a 13-9 campaign with a 3.09 ERA in 31 starts. Sheets had pitched the entirety of his career in Milwaukee for the Brewers, flashing periods of brilliance mingled with frustrating injuries. He'll lead Oakland's staff of young starters.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports that the Orioles worked out a one-year deal to bring Miguel Tejada back to Baltimore. Tejada is expected to play third base for the club, shifting recently signed Garrett Atkins to first base. The deal will pay Tejada $6 million. He earned $14,811,414 last season for Houston in the year of the six year, $72 million he signed with Baltimore in December 2003.

Tejada enjoyed a strong comeback in 2009, boosting his batting average back over .300 for the first time since 2006. Tejada's final batting line stood at .313/.340/.455. He led the National League with 46 doubles and was named to the All-Star team. The Orioles had dealt Tejada to Houston in exchange for Luke Scott, Troy Patton, Dennis Sarfate, Matt Albers and Mike Costanzo, presenting the likelihood that he'll play alongside at least three of the players he was traded for in the coming season. Tejada remains on probation for two more months following his guilty plea last year to a charge of lying to Congress about the use of steroids in baseball.

Transaction Action: Giambi Returns to Rockies for 1-yr, $1.5M PDF Print E-mail

Saturday, 23 January 2010 14:24

Jon Heyman tweets that the Colorado Rockies have agreed with pinch hitter and occasional first baseman Jason Giambi on a one-year deal expected to be worth $1.5 million. Giambi's 2009 contract with the A's was for $4 million.

The deal returns Giambi to the Rockies where he finished 2009. He appeared in 19 games for Colorado, drawing starts in just four of them. Giambi hit well (.292/.452/.583)in what by definition is an extremely small sample size (31 plate appearances). He started 2009 in Oakland where he struggled to keep his batting average above .200 ending with a line of .193/.332/.364. He continues to slug the ball when he makes contact. The Rockies will use him primarily as a pinch hitter and to spell Todd Helton occasionally at first base.

Transaction Action: Royals Sign Rick Ankiel PDF Print E-mail

Friday, 22 January 2010 12:10

ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick reports that Kansas City has agreed on a one-year deal with former Cardinal outfielder Rick Ankiel that will pay him $3.25 million for 2010. The deal also includes a mutual option worth $6 million for 2011.

Ankiel began his career as a highly touted pitcher finishing second in the NL Rookie of the Year voting. The following season saw his control vanish in spectacular fashion, and prompted his conversion to the outfield. His hard work brought him back to the majors in 2007 when he posted a .285/.328/.535 line in 190 plate appearances. After a similar 2008, he stumbled last season to a .231/.285/.387 batting line in 404 plate appearances. He'll be slotting in at right field for the Royals.

Transaction Action: Angels Pick Up Pineiro to Fill Out Rotation PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 21 January 2010 17:44

Ronald Blum of The AP provides the details of Joel Pineiro's new two-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Pineiro will earn $16 million over the life of the deal, which is pending a physical.

Pineiro had a remarkable 2009 for the Cardinals - his second full season with the club. Making 32 starts, he finished with a 15-12 record and an ERA of 3.49. Pineiro's very low strikeout rate (4.4 K/9 IP) was more than offset by his microscopic 1.1 BB/9 IP. He will slot into an Angel's rotation in transition. They return Jered Weaver, Ervin Santana, Joe Saunders and Scott Kazmir but how well Pineiro can replace John Lackey is yet to be seen.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Dejan Kovavecic reports that Pittsburgh has finalized their agreement with Octavio Dotel who is expected to assume the closer's role for the Pirates in 2010. The deal is expected to pay Dotel $3 million for 2010. The deal includes an option for 2011.

Last year Dotel pitched for the White Sox where he set up Bobby Jenks. In 62 appearances he posted an ERA of 3.32 to accompany solid peripheral stats with only his walk rate significantly higher than his career averages. He'll replace Matt Capps who was non-tendered in December by the Pirates and later signed with the Nationals.

ESPN.com's Buster Olney is reporting that the San Diego Padres have reached an agreement with Jerry Hairston Jr. on a one-year $2.12 million deal, less than a week after swinging a deal to bring Scott Hairston back to San Diego.

Jerry Hairston spent 2009 split between the Reds and the World Champion Yankees. He played everywhere a-field, save for first and behind the plate, and posted a .251/.315/.394 combined line in 433 plate appearances.

The Hairstons represent the third pair of brothers to play for the Padres since 2007, and 2010 will mark the fourth straight season that San Diego is the city of Brotherly baseball. Marcus and Brian Giles both played for the Padres in 2007. Edgar and Adrian Gonzalez were Padres in both 2008 and 2009.

Transaction Action: Oakland Acquires Kevin Kouzmanoff from San Diego PDF Print E-mail
Free Agency, Trades, and Signings
Written by Joe Tetreault   
Friday, 15 January 2010 19:35

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle tweets that Oakland has agreed to acquire Padre third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff and a prospect in exchange for Scott Hairston and Aaron Cunningham. Kouzmanoff fills Oakland' hole at thirdbase. Oakland had acquired Hairston from the Padres for Sean Gallagher two minor-leaguers. Cunningham was Oakland's top outfield prospect prior to their acquisition of Michael Taylor

Kouzmanoff broke in with the Indians in 2006 before being dealt to the Padres. He was expected to anchor the middle of their lineup, but never quite put together the offensive season that San Diego had anticipated. His averaged a batting line of .263/.309/.436 in three seasons in Petco Park. Oakland's McAfee Coliseum while still favoring pitchers, is not nearly as extreme as Petco.

Hairston enjoys tremendous baseball bloodlines as his brother, father, uncle and grandfather all played in the major leagues. He split last year between San Diego and Oakland, posting a combined line of .265/.307/456. He likely assumes left field replacing Chase Headley who could return to third base to fill the void caused by Kouzmanoff's departure.

San Diego also picks up Aaron Cunningham who spent last year between Sacramento in the PCL and Oakland. He hit well in the minors, but struggled with a batting line of .151/.211/.245 in just 57 plate appearances. With Taylor likely to assume left field in the not too distant future, Cunningham was expendable. He'll eventually push Hairston to the fourth outfield spot in San Diego when the Padres feel he is ready to contribute at the big-league level.

Transaction Action: Colby Lewis Returns to Rangers PDF Print E-mail

Friday, 15 January 2010 12:02

MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports on Jon Daniels' latest gamble in Texas - the return of the Rangers top draft pick from 1999 righthanded pitcher Colby Lewis after a two year sojourn in Japan. The two-year deal gives Lewis a shot to compete for a slot int he Rangers' rotation behind Rich Harden and Scott Feldman

Lewis' big league career had been underwhelming before joining the Hiroshima Carp in 2008. Reinventing himself, he posted back to back stellar seasons with a combined record of 26-17 while striking out 369 batters in 354 innings pitched. The remarkable accomplishment was his stinginess with the free pass, allowing just 46 walks for an otherworldly 8.0 K/BB ratio. Texas is betting that he can retain much of that outstanding ratio moving back to the major leagues. He'll be competing with Derek Holland, Matt Harrison, Brandon McCarthy and Tommy Hunter for one of the rotations spots.
