Still no Torrealba sighting, but there is no more “bidding” to be done, as multiple teams have max contracts out to him, so it’s all a crapshoot at this point.
Surprisingly New York has yet to make a free agent signing this year as he’s about $8 or $9 million from his cap right now.
After getting called out on the world chat,
Chase Fassero signs the next cycle for Colorado.
Julio Sosa will call Baltimore home for the next three years.
I picked up
Albert Sojo on a two year deal to cover my long relief role, and provide some extra starting pitcher depth if a guy in my rotation goes down. I probably could’ve waited a couple more cycles and got him cheaper, though I did have him as the 8th best SP this FA cycle.
Brant Wulf moves to Little Rock after a very productive season in Richmond.
Outside of Torrealba there aren’t too many “impact” bats left out there. Don’t get me wrong, there are some very productive guys left, but nothing game changing.
Also I might start a “Tanking Watch” section to the blog as Kansas City hasn’t signed a player other than to a minor league deal at this point.
