Transaction Action: Jason Bay to the Mets PDF Print E-mail
Free Agency, Trades, and Signings
Written by Joe Tetreault   
Tuesday, 29 December 2009 14:43

SI's John Heyman says Jason Bay's long-rumored contract with the Mets is a done deal, confirming a report that originally aired on New York's WFAN, which is the flagship station of the Mets' radio network. The deal is contingent on a physical, which Bay is expected to take early next week. Joel Sherman of the NY Post tweets that the deal is worth $66 million for four years with a vesting option.

Bay hit .267/.384/.537 last season for the Red Sox. Bay is the prototypical slugger, putting up a good, though no longer great batting average, and excellent on base and power numbers. He will join Carlos Beltran and Jeff Francoeur in the Met's outfield, patrolling left field for the club. Boston will receive the Mets second round draft pick (seventh in the round) in compensation for losing Bay, who is a Type A free agent.

Mariners Bring Back Cordero, Add Bard

Doug Miller of MLB.com reports on a pair of Mariner minor league deals. Chad Cordero who spent 2009 in the Mariner's minor league system, will be back with the organization, and will have an opportunity to make the club in spring training. Cordero had closed for the Expos/Nationals between 2004 and 2007, before injuries sidelined him much of the last two seasons. For his career he owns a 2.78 ERA with more strikeouts than hits allowed.

The second deal adds to the already crowded catching competition. Josh Bard joins the franchise after one season in Washington splitting time behind the plate with Wil Nieves and Jesus Flores. Bard's sole solid season in San Diego seems well in the past with his 2009 campaign an uninspiring .230/.293/.361 in 309 plate appearances. He'll compete with Rob Johnson, Eliezer Alfonzo and rookie Adam Moore for a spot on the opening day roster.

Washington Signs Bruntlett, Whitesell

The Associated Press provides details on a pair of pacts the Nationals agreed to. Former Phillie, Eric Bruntlett joins the organization with a spring training invitation. He's useful as a late inning defensive replacement who can field every position, save behind the plate. But his bat has steadily declined to last year's anemic (.171/.224/.238) output in 118 plate appearances with Philadelphia.

Washington also brought back first baseman Josh Whitesell, whom the franchise had drafted in 2003. He spent the last two seasons with Arizona after they claimed him off waivers from the Nationals during spring training of 2008. Whitesell posted fine numbers in the offensively amplified environment of the Pacific Coast League, but struggled in 2009 with the Diamondbacks, posting a .194/.346/.287 line in 46 games.

Jeff Bailey Joins Diamondbacks

WEEI.com's Alex Speier notes the new contract Jeff Bailey signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks, moving to his fourth franchise after spending the last six seasons in the Red Sox organization.

Bailey's major league debut was in 2007 after a decade in the minors, but at age 30 with just 56 games at the big league level, he wears the mantle of journeyman 1B/DH. He'll provide organizational depth and maybe a little pop for the Diamondbacks. For his career he's shown power with six homeruns in those 56 games, to go along with a .228/.340/.434 line.

Transaction Action: Giants Sign Mark DeRosa PDF Print E-mail
Free Agency, Trades, and Signings
Written by Joe Tetreault   
Monday, 28 December 2009 20:53

SI's Jon Heyman reports on Mark DeRosa's two-year deal with the San Francisco Giants. DeRosa is expected to play third base, primarily, with first base and the corner outfield positions a possibility. If DeRosa gets the bulk of time at third, current Giant third baseman Pablo Sandoval is expected to shift across the diamond and provide pop at first, a position that has been San Francisco's weakness in recent seasons.

DeRosa moves to his sixth team in his career and fourth since 2008. He signed as a free agent with the Cubs in 2006, who dealt him to Cleveland before the start of the 2009 season. Cleveland packaged him to St. Louis for two players to be named later in June when they had fallen out of contention. DeRosa, who turns 35 in February, posted a .250/.319/.433 line in 576 plate appearances. He missed time with a wrist injury after joining the Cardinals.

Saturday, 26 December 2009 20:14

The Arizona Republic's Nick Piecoro has the details of the Diamondbacks deal for Bob Howry. Howry will get between $2 and $3 million for the 2010 season. Arizona holds a team option for 2011.

The 36 year-old righty spent last season in San Francisco putting up solid numbers setting up Giants closer Brian Wilson. His 2009 3.39 ERA and 1.15 WHIP recalled his stellar seasons with the Indians and Cubs, rather than his underwhelming 2008 in Chicago. He's expected to set up Arizona closer Chad Qualls along with recently acquired Aaron Heilman

Transaction Action: Oakland Re-Signs Justin Duchscherer PDF Print E-mail
Free Agency, Trades, and Signings
Written by Joe Tetreault   
Saturday, 26 December 2009 19:56

Jerry Crasnick reported on ESPN's website that Oakland re-signed Justin Duchscherer to a one-year guaranteed contract that could be worth as much as $5.5 million if Duchscherer achieves all of his incentives. The righty missed last season in its entirety after elbow surgery and treatment for clinical depression.

Duchscherer twirled a fantastic 2008 campaign as the ace of the A's staff, keeping runners off the bases and runs off the board in his first full season as a starter with the club. With a rotation already crowded with young talent, Oakland may send the veteran righty back to the pen, where he pitched successfully between 2004-06.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick tweeted Kelvim Escobar will receive a $1.25 million guaranteed contract, along with a $125,000 roster bonus if he makes the club's opening day squad. Escobar, who turns 34 just after Opening Day, also has incentive clauses for both starting and relieving. He is expected to pitch out of the Mets' pen setting up Francisco Rodriguez who also pitched with Escobar when both were Angels.

Escobar was primarily used as a starter in Los Angeles, before injuries wiped out all but five innings of his last two seasons. He owns a better track record as a starter with a lower ERA, than he does when pitching in relief, despite having a markedly better strikeout rate out of the pen.

R.A. Dickey Joins the Mets

The AP's Ronald Blum hears from a source that R.A. Dickey has agreed to a minor league deal with the Mets. The 35 year-old knuckleballer appeared in 35 games with the Twins last season, his only year with the club.

The well-traveled righty can pitch both as a starter and out of the pen. His numbers last year reflect his career numbers, with too many hits allowed, not enough control and not enough bats missed. A shift to the cavernous Citi Field may benefit Dickey, who has tended to allow more flyballs than groundballs throughout his career.

Eddie Guardado Signs with Washington

Chico Harlan of the Washington Post provides some added details of (no longer) "Everyday" Eddie Guardado's one-year deal with the Nationals. His contract is not guaranteed, meaning he need not take a physical immediately, nor will he be added to the club's 40-man roster.

Guardado, 39, spent last season in Texas, reviving a career that injuries derailed in recent years. Formerly a closer for the Twins and the Mariners, the lefty has scuffled since 2006, bouncing from Seattle, to Cincinnati, to Texas, to Minnesota and then back tot he Rangers, where he pitched adequately in short stints. He'll be given an opportunity to make the club in spring training.

Seattle Acquires Johermyn Chavez from Jays

The Associated Press names Johermyn Chavez as the prospect the Mariners will receive to complete the Brandon Morrow-Brandon league trade. Chavez is a 20 year-old (21 in late January) outfielder from Venezuela. He has been in Toronto's organization the last four seasons.

Chavez profiles as a corner outfielder, and has tremendous power, posting 21 homeruns last season in his second stint in low-A Lansing of the Midwest League. His production at the plate is batting average and power dependent. If he plays competent defense or has a canon arm, he may prove valuable.

Royals Add LHP Nelson Payano, OF Jorge Bonifacio.

Sam Mellinger of the KC Star notes a pair of minor league deals the Royals gave out. Lefty Nelson Payano had spent six years in the minors before becoming a free agent this winter. His career minor league numbers include a 15-14 record in 246.3 mostly relief innings. He has never advanced beyond AA.

The other player joining Kansas City's organization is Jorge Bonafacio who will begin his professional baseball career as a first-year player in the Royals Baseball Academy

Giants RHP Sadowski to Korea

The Korea Herald reports San Francisco Giants reliever Ryan Sadowski has signed a contract to play for the Lotte Giants, a Korean League team based in Busan.

Sadowski, making his major league debut, started six games for San Francisco in 2009, posting a 2-4 record and an ERA of 4.45 in 28.3 innings pitched. He is expected to close games for the Lotte Giants, who are managed by former major league Jerry Royster.

Transaction Action: Washington Signs Matt Capps PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 24 December 2009 06:54

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Dejan Kovacevic has word that Washington beat out the Cubs signing Matt Capps to a one-year $3.5 million contract. The two clubs had battled in recent days for the services of the 26 year-old righty reliever recently non-tendered by the Pirates. THe mets and Pirates also offered deals to Capps.

After two excellent seasons at the back of Pittsburgh's bullpen, Capps struggled last season, as his hit rate and ERA ballooned to unprecedented heights. For his career, he owns very respectable rate stats and has been equally successful closing out games. Capps is expected to close for the Nationals, replacing Mike MacDougal who also was non-tendered.

Wednesday, 23 December 2009 18:01

Jayson Stark translates an ESPN Deportes story by Enrique Rojas stating that Fernando Rodney has signed a two year contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for $11 million. The 32-year old righty closed games last season with Detroit.

The Angels are paying for save totals, and Rodney amassed plenty of them last season. He also posted his worst rate stats in five years last season. His K-rates dwindled to average levels, without a corresponding dip in his walk-rate. His ERA has been north of four for each of the last three years. He may be used in tandem with incumbent Angels closer Brian Fuentes, or as a setup man.  Detroit lost both Rodney and Brandon Lyon from their bullpen via free agency and are expected to tab Joel Zumaya to close games in 2010.

Pittsburgh Signs Jack Taschner

ESPN's Jayson Stark has a quick blurb about Jack Taschner's minor league deal with the Pirates. Taschner spent last season in Philadelphia's pen, chalking up a win in 24 games.

The 31 year old lefty struggles with control, walking more batters than he struck out last season. For his career he allows more than a baserunner and a half for every inning pitched. If Taschner makes the Pirates out of spring training, he would receive $835,000 with incentives that could elevate the deal to $1.3 million.

Royals Add Another Anderson

Scott Merkin, MLB.com writer for the White Sox tweets that former White Sox outfielder Brian Anderson has agreed to a one-year major-league contract with the Kansas City Royals. Anderson had been traded during August to the Red Sox in exchange for Mark Kotsay.

A former top prospect, Anderson, 28, was named White Sox starting centerfielder before 2006, but never established himself as a credible reserve, never mind starting player in the majors. For his career, Anderson has hit .227/.290/.370 in 883 plate appearances. The Royals, in trying to corner the market for 28-year old outfielders named Anderson, added Josh Anderson, formerly of the Tigers, during the 2009 season.

Mike Koplove Signs with Seattle

Fox Sports' Jon Morosi tweets the news of the minor league deal signed by Mike Koplove, who has bounced around the minors for much of his career. His best seasons were spent in Arizona between 2002 and 2004.

Spending parts of last year with three organizations, including the Mariners, the 33 year-old righty posted rather solid numbers in 72.3 innings pitched. Koplove was a member of the bronze medal 2008 USA Olympic Baseball team.

Yankees, Mike Rivera Agree on Deal

Earlier Morosi tweeted about the minor league contract the Yankees gave to Mike Rivera, who spent the last four seasons playing sparingly for Milwaukee. Rivera is expected to provide organizational depth at catcher, and could challenge Francisco Cervelli to back up Jorge Posada during spring training.

Rivera's career numbers are fairly good for a backup catcher. During his time in Milwaukee, he hit .260/.333/.423 in 374 plate appearances.
