Free Agency, Trades, and Signings
Written by Joe Tetreault   
Friday, 08 January 2010 17:48

Brian McTaggart of MLB.com tweets that the Astros have reached an agreement with former Philadelphia righthander Brett Myers. The deal is contingent on a physical.

Myers, 29, spent his entire career in Philly, mostly as a starter until turns in the pen in almost all of 2007 and for almost half of his appearances in 2009. He posted a 4.84 ERA in 70.7 innings pitched, with disappointing peripheral stats. According to reports, he has been offered a starting role with the Astros. He will join Roy Oswalt, Wandy Rodriguez and two of Bud Norris, Felipe Paulino and Brian Moehler starting games in Houston.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports tweets some connection for a pair of reports regarding Kansas City's contract for a speedy outfielder and Scott Podsednik new deal with an unknown club. Rosenthal expects that an official announcement will be forthcoming today to affirm Podsednik's deal with the club.

Podsednik, who will turns 34 during spring training, spent last year in Chicago returning to the White Sox after a season in Colorado. Podsednik's primary skill is quickness on the basepaths, averaging 49 stolen bases per 162 games played. His batting line last year (.304/.353/.412) was the best of his career since his rookie year with Milwaukee in 2003 when he finished second in the NL's rookie of the year balloting. Podsednik may compete for the starting left field job with Josh Fields or assume the DH responsibilities for the Royals.

Friday, 08 January 2010 14:01

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Oakland and free agent OF/DH Jack Cust have agreed on a one-year, $2.65 million contract with additional incentives that could bring the total value of the contract to $3 million. Cust, originally a salary arbitration eligible player, was non-tendered by the Athletics on 12/12.

Cust, who turns 31 next week, is expected to DH full-time next year, having played both corner outfield positions rather poorly the last three years. Oakland's surplus of new outfielders includes both Coco Crisp and Jake Fox, who could play also play third base in the event the ever-injured Eric Chavez is unable to field the position after another back surgery in mid-2009. In addition, the A's acquired outfield prospect Michael Taylor who could compete for an outfield spot. Cust is the prototypical three true outcomes player, having led the AL in strikeouts each of the last three seasons, while averaging 28 homeruns and 103 walks during that span.

For the full list of remaining salary arbitration elligible players, see the Salary Arbitration Filing page.

Jays Claim Brian Bocock

Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News tweets that the Toronto Blue Jays have claimed former Giants minor league shortstop Brian Bocock off waivers.

Bocock spent part of 2008 in the Majors with the Giants, where he played stellar defense but performed abysmally at the plate. His career minor league line gives little cause for encouragement, but he is young enough that he may still figure it out.

Royals Add Cuban Defector Noel Arguelles

The Associated Press reports that the Royals have inked lefty Noel Arguelles to a five-year, $7 million contract. Arguelles defected from Cuba along with Red Sox shortstop prospect Jose Iglesias in 2008.

Arguelles is expected to refine his command and control in the low minors as he works his way to the big leagues. Not yet, 20, he's still growing into his 6-foot-4 frame.

Phillies Scott Eyre Retires

MLB.com's Todd Zolecki notes the end of Phillies reliever Scott Eyre's career. Eyre spent thirteen years in the bigs, with five different clubs. After initial failure as a starter, his conversion to relief work led to some of his best seasons.

In 2009 he appeared in 42 games for the Phillies, primarily as a lefty specialist out of the bullpen. He chalked up an impressive 1.50 ERA, but his peripherals had shown signs of slipping as his walk rate tripled from 2008, while his strikeout rate was almost halved. He was a member of the 2008 World Series winning Phillies team, appearing in games three and four earning a hold in both games.

Clay Condrey Signs With Twins

Philadelphia also lost a righthanded setup man as Kelly Theiser of MLB.com posts a story on Clay Condrey's one-year deal with the Twins. Condrey had been non-tendered in December by the Phillies.

In both 2008 and 2009, Condrey, 34, pitched effectively for the Phillies, but his peripherals hardly supported his low ERA. The low number of strikeouts and high hits per nine innings ratio, prior to 2009 would suggest an ERA much higher than he posted. Condrey will have to earn a set up job in spring training.

Transaction Action: Matt Holliday Agrees to Seven Year Contract PDF Print E-mail
Free Agency, Trades, and Signings
Written by Joe Tetreault   
Tuesday, 05 January 2010 20:24

SI's Jon Heyman calls Matt Holliday's new contract a "mega-deal" an apt description for a seven-year, $120 million pact that will keep Holliday with the St. Louis Cardinals through the 2016 season. The deal also includes a vesting option for an additional $17 million. The deal includes a full no-trade clause, ensuring Holliday has full control over where he plays for the next seven seasons.

The Stillwater, Oklahoma, native joined the Cardinals shortly after mid-season, on a deal that sent youngsters Brett Wallace, Clayton Mortensen and Shane Peterson to Oakland. Oakland had acquired the outfielder from the Rockies last offseason. He struggled with the A's, but found his stroke upon his return to the National League, belting Senior Circuit hurlers to the tune of .353/.419/.604, well above his Oakland line of .286/.378/.454. The contract arrives just over a week before Holliday's thirtieth birthday.

Transaction Action: Mariners Swing Deal for Casey Kotchman PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, 05 January 2010 17:39

ESPN in an unsigned report that echoes a pair of Buster Olney tweets reports that Seattle will swing a deal for Boston's backup first baseman, Casey Kotchman in exchange for at least one minor leaguer. Splitting time between Atlanta and Boston, Kotchman his a combined .268/.339/.382 in 431 plate appearances. He is regarded as an excellent defensive first baseman.

Kotchman came to Boston in exchange for Adam LaRoche shortly after the Red Sox had acquired LaRoche from the Pirates in July. Boston had sought to move Mike Lowell along with three-quarters of his 2010 salary to Texas before the deal fell apart. The salary saved by dealing Kotchman will likely exceed the savings the Red Sox would have gotten had the deal gone through.

Olivio Signs with Rockies

MLB.com's Thomas Harding stokes the Hot Stove fires with confirmation of Colorado's new contract for catcher Miguel Olivo. The deal guarantees Olivo $2 million for 2010 and includes a $2.5 million team option and a $500,000 buyout, should the Rockies decline to retain him for 2011.

Olivo, 31, poked 23 homeruns for the Royals in 2009, despite sharing time at the start of the season with John Buck. Denver's power friendly Coors Field should prove inviting to the slugging catcher, though he remains an out machine. He'll challenge Chris Iannetta for playing time. his deal ends Yorvit Torrealba time in Colorado.

Rays Lock Up Shoppach Through 2011

MLB.com's Bill Chastain reports that the Rays have signed newly acquired catcher Kelly Shoppach to a two year contract worth $5.5 million.

Shoppach spent last season with Cleveland, posting a .214/.335/.399 batting line in 89 games. Shoppach should split time with Dioner Navarro who earlier signed a $2.1 million one-year deal.

Pirates ink Burres, Cotts, and Yates

The Pittsbugh Post Gazette's Dejan Kovacevic reports on a trio of bullpen arms bound for the Bucs. Brian Burres, Neal Cotts and Tyler Yates each received invitations to spring training in addition to their freshly signed minor league deals.

Burres spent most of last year in Las Vegas, Toronto's AAA affiliate, with the exception of two gruesome starts in April that accounted for his 14.21 ERA in six and a third innings pitched. Cotts and Yates both had their 2009 seasons cut short by elbow injuries that required Tommy John surgery in July. Prior to surgery Cotts had posted a 7.36 ERA in 11 innings for the Cubs. Yates made it through an even dozen frames, but fared no better with a 7.50 ERA.

John Parrish Joins Royals

MLB.com Dick Kaegel posts a story on John Parrish's minor league deal with the Royals. Parrish lost 2009 due to a shoulder injury.

He split 2008 between Toronto and Syracuse, their AAA affiliate at the time. His middling numbers at the big league level (4.04 ERA 4.5 K/9) were overshadowed by a 10-1 record at AAA, the product of a 2.97 ERA and a 9.9 K/9 rate.

Transaction Action: Boston Lands Adrian Beltre PDF Print E-mail
Free Agency, Trades, and Signings
Written by Joe Tetreault   
Monday, 04 January 2010 21:00

ESPN Boston's Gordon Edes with an assist from Jerry Crasnick reports that the Boston Red Sox and Adrian Beltre have agreed on a one year contract worth a guaranteed $10 million. The deal includes a player option worth $5 million dollars. Beltre's base salary for 2010 will be $9 million. There is a $1 million buyout of the player option.

Beltre, who turns 31 during opening week of the coming season is expected to take over third base duties for the Red Sox. The Red Sox had agreed to trade their third baseman from last season, Mike Lowell, to Texas along with cash for Rangers catching prospect Max Ramirez, but the deal fell through when Lowell failed a physical. Beltre is an excellent defender, who had his worst season at the plate in 2009, posting a .265/.304/.379 line in the final year of a five year deal he signed with Seattle in December of 2004, which was well shy of his career line of .270/.325/.453. Beltre and his agent Scott Boras had been seeking a multi-year deal, but the market for such a contract never developed. The one-year pact allows Beltre to again test the free agent waters if his 2010 season is successful.

A special all Jon Heyman update edition

Uribe Returns to the Giants

SI's Jon Heyman who tweets that the Giants have a deal in place to bring back utility infielder Juan Uribe for 2010.

Uribe evenly split time at second, third and shortstop last season for the Giants, compiling a .289/.329/.495 batting line. Uribe, 30, spent time with the Rockies and White Sox before signing with the Giants before last season.

Diamondbacks Sign Johnson

Heyman posted on Kelly Johnson's new $2 million deal with the Diamondbacks. Johnson had been non-tendered by the Braves earlier in the offseason after three and a half seasons in Atlanta. Johnson's wrist injury limited him to 346 plate appearances last year.

Despite his off year, for his career, Johnson has hit .264/.346/.430. The Diamondbacks had acquired Tony Abreu from the Dodgers in the Jon Garland trade to compete with Ryan Roberts for time at second base, which now becomes Johnson's position to lose.

Danys Baez Signs with the Phillies

Finally another Heyman tweet confirming that the Phillies will sign Danys Baez. Baez goes back to the National League after spending 2007 and 2009 in Baltimore. He missed 2008 with after season ending elbow surgery.

The 32 year-old reliever is expected to help setup Brad Lidge, replacing free agent Chan Ho Park in the Philadelphia pen. He posted a 4.02 ERA in 71.7 innings pitched last year for the Orioles.
