kearns rumors...


Austin Kearns - OF - Reds


The Braves may have joined the Royals in asking the Reds about Austin Kearns.
The Indians and Tigers also could have some interest. The Reds aren't going to give Kearns away, but after their recent moves, they may be a little more open to a trade. They could move Kearns and still have Ryan Freel to back up Adam Dunn, Ken Griffey Jr. and Wily Mo Pena. Jan. 2 - 1:11 pm et

Tony Batista - 3B - WAS


Tony Batista reportedly will sign with a Fukuoka Hawks of Japan for $15 million over two years.
Way to go, Tony. He certainly wasn't going to get that kind of money in MLB. He made just $1.5 million last season. Jan. 5 - 4:26 pm et

Devil Rays sign Alex Gonzalez....more bad news for Upton owners...
Link
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Free agent infielder Alex S. Gonzalez is changing uniforms again after agreeing Wednesday to a $1.75 million, one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

The Devil Rays plan to use the versatile 31-year-old at third base in hopes he can add some punch to one of the weakest offenses in the American League. Two years ago, Gonzalez hit a career-high 20 homers for the Chicago Cubs.

Nothing huge to report but nonetheless...

The Tigers signed Ramon Martinez (2B) Det to a one-year deal yesterday, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Milton Bradley (OF) LA re-signed with the Dodgers for one-year, according to the LA Times. The contract is laden with incentives to keep him focused on staying out of trouble.

The Mariners signed Pokey Reese (2B) Sea to a one-year deal on Tuesday, according to the Seattle Times. The contract includes a team option for 2006 and he should be the everyday shortstop for the Mariners.

The Red Sox agreed to a minor league contract with Josias Manzanillo (P) Fla on Thursday, according to the AP. He was 3-3 with one save and a 6.12 ERA in 26 appearances with the Marlins last season.

Brad Wilkerson (OF) Was agreed to a one-year, $3.05 million contract with the Nationals on Thursday, according to the AP. He hit .255 with 32 home runs, 67 RBI, 112 runs scored and 13 stolen bases last season and was voted the Expos MVP.

The Marlins agreed Thursday to a one-year contract with Ismael Valdez (P) Fla, according to the AP. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Valdez was 14-9 with a 5.13 ERA last year for San Diego and Florida.

The Rockies agreed to a one-year, $1.05 million contract with Desi Relaford (2B) Col on Thursday, according to the AP. Relaford played six positions for Kansas City last season, hitting .221 with six homers and 34 RBI in 114 games. He might have a chance to become the starting third baseman, but will most likely fill in spots throughout the outfield and infield.

The Pirates avoided arbitration by agreeing to a two-year, $8 million deal with Jack Wilson (SS) Pit on Thursday, according to the AP.

Gregg Zaun (C) Tor signed a one-year contract with the Blue Jays on Thursday worth $950,000 with a $1 million club option for 2006, according to the AP.

A.J. Pierzynski (C) CWS signed a one-year deal with the White Sox on Thursday. He hit .272 with 11 home runs and 77 RBI for the Giants last season.

The Cardinals signed Mark Grudzielanek (2B) StL to a $1 million, one-year contract on Thursday, according to the AP. Grudzielanek will be the team's starting second baseman. "We've been trying to identify infielders to handle a variety of roles for us," Cardinals general manager Walt Jocketty said. "Grudzielanek offers us versatility with both the bat and in the field. He's a proven veteran who should fit nicely into our everyday lineup."

The Padres and Chris Hammond (P) SD agreed to terms on a contract that would be finalized once he passes a physical, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

sorry to give you more work Mad, but

Tigers re-signed first baseman Carlos Pena to a one-year, $2.575 million contract.
Pena, who was eligible for arbitration for the first time, would earn a $25,000 bonus if he has 625 plate appearances. While he hit right around .240 again last season, he showed the best power and walk rate of his career. He's making steady progress. Jan. 7 - 3:42 pm et

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Millwood to Indians
Indians signed RHP Kevin Millwood, who had been with the Phillies, to a one-year, $7 million contract.

Millwood is guaranteed $3 million. If he spends 21 or more days on the DL for an injury to his shoulder or elbow sustained while pitching, he would lose 1/183rd of a $4 million signing bonus for each day on the DL, including the first 20. He can earn an additional $1 million in bonuses if he stays healthy. It's expected that Millwood will start the third game of the season for Cleveland. Jan. 8 - 1:44 pm et
