Malcolm McCartin sighting, but some other top pitchers have signed in the past 24 hours.
I picked up
Albert Granados after he declined the option on his last year with Richmond. Total of three-years, with a somewhat front-loaded contract. Paying about $2.5 million per win he’ll add over a replacement pitcher, which sounds about right. That’ll be my one FA signing this year.
Little Rock picked up
Wilfredo Cedeno on a one-year contract for $3.6 million. Not going to be able to replace McCartin, but will still do a job.
Bo Olson signed for Anaheim on a two-year, $4.6 million contract.
There are also a ton of good relief pitchers out there.
For whatever reason Tacoma released SS
Felipe Blanco, and Richmond picked him up on a two-year, $5.2 million contract.
Toronto signed 3B
Randy Gordon on a one-year deal.
Anaheim signed C
R.J. Melo two a two-year deal. Probably more suited as a DH though.
Derrick Cornelius crushes the ball when he makes good contact, and will draw a walk or two, but don’t expect him to hit for average. He just signed for Dover.
