Any chance Fuentes still gets moved?

Postby Maris09 » Sun Aug 10, 2008 4:17 pm

The Rockies have imploded since the deadline, any chance Fuentes gets moved somewhere?
I know the waiver rules are a little complicated, so not sure if a team who would/could take him will even have a chance, just wondering though.

Did he make it through waivers? I did not expect him too...

I dug this up from Rotowire. Seems like they want to hang onto him for at least another year.

Aug 1 Fuentes isn't as likely to leave as a free agent this winter as previously reported, the Rocky Mountain News reports.

Recommendation: If Fuentes leaves as a free agent, the Rockies will be in line for two top-50 compensatory draft picks. However, in order to qualify for that offer, they need to offer Fuentes arbitration. He could accept arbitration and the possibility of a one-year deal with Colorado worth around $10 million. The Rockies recently confirmed that they will offer Fuentes arbitration.

$10 million for 1 year seems about market value for Fuentes, probably even a little better. I mean, the guy's a solid, but not great closer. Don't most great closers get in the $15 million/year range?

8-o 8-o 8-o no.


i doubt fuentes goes anywhere. the only way he could would be for a team to claim him, and then get dealt to that team. i would assume most teams would claim, and fuentes would be awarded to a losing team, and then the losing team wouldnt want to pay fuentes.

The Rockies will offer arbitration (as a formality to getting FA comp), but there is very little chance that he would accept. He's going to want the multi-year contract.

I'm not totally sure that he would get 10M in arb either. I think he's a lock for 6-8M/yr for 3-4 yrs considering the money thrown at loogies that aren't even very good. I think that's better than hoping for 8+M in arb.

But I haven't looked at the closers available and who needs a closer to speculate too much on how much he can get in FA. I do know that Milwaukee needs a closer (a whole bullpen maybe) very, very badly.

true. 6-8 mil would seem very doable for a lot of teams.

From KFFL:
FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports the Los Angeles Dodgers could be poised to claim Colorado Rockies CL Brian Fuentes when he's put through the waiver process. They just have to have a worse record than the Arizona Diamondbacks.


I am a lot more ignorant to the MLB waiver process than I'd like to admit. So... does that change anyone's thoughts on Fuentes going anywhere? Maybe to LAD?
