Not to shatter your confidence but...

Eli Marrero and Albert Castillo are under contract with the Royals.

I can't find any information on Mark Bellhorn or Shea Hillenbrand being a free agents.

No worries Tavish, and I appreciate the info. ;-D I'll take a closer look this evening and see what I can dig up. I made close to 100 updates on it the last two days, so my eyes were bugging out a bit. X-I . Lol. :-b

I made a few updates, and here are a few more:

David Dellucci - OF - TEX


Rangers re-signed outfielder David Dellucci to a two-year, $1.8 million contract.
Dellucci can earn an additional $700,000 in bonuses over the life the contract. He's currently the Rangers' fourth outfielder, but unless the team signs a regular DH, he'll be in the starting lineup against most right-handers. He hit .254/.354/.472 versus righties last season. Dec. 19 - 7:19 pm et



Antonio Alfonseca - R - Marlins


Incentive clauses in the deal Antonio Alfonseca signed with the Marlins starting kicking in at 10 games. He could make $2 million in 2005.
Alfonseca is only guaranteed $300,000 because of his back problems, but he can still earn the $4.7 million he was due before he failed his physical. If he appears in 65 games next season -- a figure he has reached in four of the last six years -- the Marlins' $2.7 million option for 2006 will become guaranteed. Dec. 19 - 2:03 pm et

Jason Christiansen - R - Giants


Jason Christiansen received a one-year, $1.15 million contract with a $1.6 million option for 2006 from the Giants.
That's according to the San Jose Mercury News. The Contra Costa Times reports that it's a $1.1 million contract with a $1.5 million option. The San Francisco Chronicle said he's guaranteed $1.05 million and the buyout of the option could increase from $50,000 to $150,000, depending on how many games Christiansen pitches next season. Dec. 18 - 2:12 pm et
Source: San Jose Mercury News




Ray King - R - Cardinals


Cardinals re-signed LHP Ray King to a two-year contract with an option for 2007.
Given King's build, he probably not the type a pitcher a team should want to give a long-term contract to. Still, two years is fine for perhaps the game's premier lefty specialist. He'll probably get a chance to face more righties next season with Steve Kline leaving. Dec. 17 - 8:57 pm et




Chad Bentz - R - Marlins


Marlins signed LHP Chad Bentz to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
Bentz had a 5.86 ERA in 27 2/3 innings for the Expos last season. If the season started tomorrow, he might have a spot in the Florida pen. However, the Marlins will keep looking for a lefty to pair with Matt Perisho. They also have Rule 5 pick Luke Hagerty. Dec. 17 - 7:47 pm et





Mike DiFelice - C - Marlins


Marlins signed catcher Mike DiFelice to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
The Marlins will look for a cheap upgrade, but if they don't find one, DiFelice and Matt Treanor will compete to become Paul Lo Duca's backup. Dec. 17 - 7:45 pm et




Wilson Delgado - SS - Marlins


Marlins signed infielder Wilson Delgado to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
Delgado hit .292/.366/.385 in 130 at-bats for the Mets last season. He might replace Mike Mordecai as the Marlins' sixth infielder. Dec. 17 - 7:44 pm et




Brian Buchanan - OF - Devil Rays


Devil Rays signed outfielder Brian Buchanan to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
If Eduardo Perez doesn't come back from his torn Achilles' tendon, Buchanan would be a fine replacement against lefties. The 31-year-old has hit .265/.360/.485 versus southpaws in his career. Dec. 17 - 6:02 pm et

some more a's news...


Mark Ellis - 2B - OAK


Athletics re-signed second baseman Mark Ellis to a one-year contract.
The A's have decided to tender all of their arbitration-eligible players. If recovered from a dislocated shoulder, Ellis will battle Keith Ginter for playing time at second base. Dec. 20 - 8:21 pm et

Chad Bradford - R - OAK


Athletics re-signed RHP Chad Bradford to a one-year, $1.4 million contract.
Bradford probably would have been non-tendered if he didn't agree to the one-year deal. If Juan Cruz and Huston Street look good in March, it wouldn't be surprising to see the A's trade Bradford before the start of the season. Dec. 20 - 8:20 pm et

Tim Harikkala - R - OAK


Athletics re-signed RHP Tim Harikkala to a one-year, $335,000 contract.
It's a split contract. Harikkala will receive $100,000 if he begins the year in the minors. Because of Oakland's recent trades, there's little chance that he'll make the team. Dec. 20 - 8:14 pm et

rotoworld wrote:Mike Myers
Cardinals signed LHP Mike Myers, who had been with the Red Sox, to a one-year contract.
The Cardinals won't trust Carmen Cali after all. With Ray King set to take on a bigger role in 2005, Myers will be used as lefty specialist in the sixth and seventh innings. He won't have any fantasy value, of course.


rotoworld wrote:So Taguchi
Cardinals re-signed outfielder So Taguchi to a one-year contract.
It didn't seem likely that he'd leave St. Louis. Taguchi will probably make less than $1 million in his role as the Cardinals' fifth outfielder.

a couple of more notes...

from rotoworld

Josh Phelps - DH - TB


Devil Rays signed first baseman Josh Phelps, who had been with the Indians, to a one-year contract.
Phelps will definitely play against lefties. He picked a team that will also let him compete a full-time job. We still think the 26-year-old will end up as a solid regular at DH or first base. A 30-homer season in 2005 shouldn't be ruled out. Dec. 22 - 8:06 pm et

Orlando Hernandez - S - CWS


Orlando Hernandez could make up to $12 million over the next two years under the terms of the deal he agreed to today.
El Duque will receive $3.5 million and up to $1.5 million in incentives in 2005. His 2006 salary will be $4.5 million plus one-third of whatever portion of the $1.5 million in bonuses he earns in 2005. He can also make an additional $2 million in incentives in the final year of the deal. Dec. 22 - 7:35 pm et
Source: The Associated Press

John Riedling - R - CIN


John Riedling has reached a preliminary agreement with the Marlins on a one-year, $750,000 contract.
The Marlins are Riedling's hometown team and they tried to trade for him last spring, so this hardly comes as a surprise. The deal will be finalized after he passes a physical. Dec. 22 - 7:32 pm et
Source: The Associated Press

Lenny Dinardo - R - BOS


Red Sox re-signed LHP Lenny DiNardo to a one-year contract.
DiNardo, non-tendered on Monday, goes right back on the 40-man roster. He'll compete for a bullpen spot in spring training, but he's very likely to open the season in Triple-A Pawtucket's rotation. Dec. 22 - 7:29 pm et
