Free Agency, Trades, and Signings

The Seattle Times' Larry Stone reports that the Mariners have agreed on a one-year deal with outfielder Eric Byrnes. The deal is worth the league minimum $400,000 with Arizona on the hook for the balance of the $11 million owed to Byrnes. The Diamondbacks released Byrnes earlier in the week.

Byrnes spent the last four seasons in Arizona. His first two years with the Diamondbacks showed such promise that Arizona signed the energetic outfielder to a three-year contract worth a guaranteed $30 million. Injuries and ineffectiveness have derailed Byrnes since signing that deal. He missed half of each of the last two seasons, while his batting line dropped to .209/.272/.369 in 2008 and remained depressed in 2009 at .226/.270/.393.

Yankees

UPDATE: The table below and all associated data has been updated due to having Robinson Cano's salary at $6.75 million. He will be making $9 million in 2010. The adjusted total for these 18 players now stands at $200,990,000


When you get some breathing room in the salary arbitration season, such as we’ve seen the past two days, it gives you some time to play. We started  when we published an initial salary allocation for the Atlanta Braves first thing this morning, and continued with the Boston Red Sox

Let’s bust the bank and see what the New York Yankees have allocated for the upcoming season. First off, you can mark down the Bronx Bombers will (yet again) bust through the $170 million Luxury Tax threshold for 2010, unless there’s a serious fire sale. Wait a sec... it’s the Yankees. Fire sale? You must jest.

And, there’s bound to be more salary added to the listing, as these players are under 3 years of service time, and are on year-to-year renewals: Joba Chamberlin, Philip Hughes , Brett Gardner, Alfredo Aceves and Edwar Ramirez. Odds are the Yankees could meet their $220,024,917 end of year salary they had last season.

Below is a listing of potential 2010 salary allocated by the New York Yankees. Remember… this is all base salary information. No deferments.

$32,000,000

Red SoxWe played with the Atlanta Braves first thing this morning, so why not do another?

Below are some initial salary figures that could be allocated to the Boston Red Sox for the 2010 season. Actually, the chances are very good these guys are all suited up on opening day. The gaps involve players still under 3 years of service time that are on a year-to-year basis. Contract details for Jacoby Ellsbury, Jed Lowrie, and Clay Buchholz are still out there. Finally, who knows if any of these players wind up in trades? Plenty of chatter about a blockbuster that won’t go away (see one San Diego Padres), plus a player with a lingering thumb injury. Throw it all together and the details will change (good chance the three players not yet in salary arbitration could fetch between $600-$700,00 each, maybe more).  All that aside, one thing seems abundantly clear: The Red Sox will surpass their 2009 $121,745,999 opening day payroll figure with ease. And, they are certainly going to be flirting with the Luxury Tax threshold by the end of the season. This year the threshold is $170 million.

Below is a listing of potential 2010 salary allocated by the Boston Red Sox. Remember… this is all base salary information. No deferments.

Joe Sherman of the New York Post tweets that the Yankees have signed outfielder Randy Winn to a one-year contract pending a physical. The deal is worth $2 million and effectively ends Johnny Damon's stay in the Bronx.

Winn's trek through the majors began in 1998 with Tampa Bay when they were still the Devil Rays and included stops in Seattle and San Francisco. Last year, with the Giants he tallied a batting line of .262/.318/.353 in 149 games. He played primarily in right, but had significant time in center and left as well. For the Yankees he can back up at all three positions, or if Brett Gardner bat remains inadequate, he can start in place of him.

Transaction Action: Rockies Sign Tim Redding to Minor League Deal PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 27 January 2010 19:40

The Denver Post's Troy Renck reports that the Rockies have signed veteran starter Tim Redding to a minor league contract. The deal is said to be worth $1 million if the veteran righthander makes the club out of spring training. Because the deal is non-guaranteed, Colorado's risk is minimized.

Redding had an injury-marred 2009 with the injury-marred Mets. When healthy he pitched ineffectively tallying three wins against six defeats in 120 innings pitched. His ERA stood at 5.10 at seasons end. He was fairly hittable and particularly susceptible to the longball, which does not sound like a winning combination for Coors field.

Transaction Action: Cubs Bring Chad Tracy to Camp on a Minor-League Deal PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 27 January 2010 19:32

Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago writes the the Cubs have signed Chad Tracy to a minor league contract. Tracy can play both infield corner positions well, and has some experience in right and left field as well.

His main asset through his career has been his bat, but that skill was not in evidence in either of the last two seasons as he battled injuries and struggled to stay in the Diamondbacks lineup. His career OPS of .792 is not particularly great for a first baseman, but works as a bat off the bench who can cover the four corners adequately, especially on a minor-league deal. He'll compete with Micah Hoffpauir in spring training for that bench role. Should Tracy win the job, he'll earn $900,000 with an additional bonus of $525,000 if he reaches 450 plate appearances.

Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports reports that Minnesota has signed designated hitter Jim Thome to a one-year contract. The deal will pay Thome $1.5 million for 2010. The Twins are expected to deploy Thome off the bench, rather than start him.

It's the role that the Dodgers acquired Thome from the White Sox for last season. Thome had limited success as a pinch hitter in the National league, Going 4 for 17. He still punched out 23 homeruns for the White Sox, and should be able to spell the Twins DH Jason Kubel.

Transaction Action: Padres, Garland Agree on Contract for 2010 PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 27 January 2010 17:04

The AP's Bernie Wilson has a story about the contract the Padres agreed on with starting pitcher Jon Garland. The contract guarantees Garland $4.7 million in 2010, and includes an option for $6.75 million for 2011. It is a mutual option, with a two-tiered buyout structure. If Garland decliens the option, San Diego would buy him out for $300,000. If the Padres determined they would prefer to decline the option, they would be on the hook for $600,000 to buy Garland out.

Garland split last year between the Diamondbacks and the Dodgers. He went 11-13 with an ERA of 4.01 in 33 starts for the two teams. He'll anchor a Padre rotation expected to include Chris Young and Kevin Correia.

Yahoo's Tim Brown tweets that the Chicago Cubs have agreed to terms with outfielderXavier Nady on a one-year contract worth a guaranteed $3.3 million with an additional $2 million in incentives. The deal is pending a physical.

Nady missed all but seven games of 2009 due to Tommy John surgery, which means the Cubs' medical staff will be called on to do their due diligence before passing him. Nady had an exceptional 2008, his first year in a primary starting role. His career best batting line of .305/.357/.510 split between New York and Pittsburgh was enough to earn him a $6.55 million deal to avoid arbitration last offseason.
