    Feb 14, 2010, 8:49 PM EDT

    SI.com’s Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks and arbitration-eligible right-hander Edwin Jackson have agreed to a two-year, $13.35 million contract. The pact takes Jackson up to his first year of free agency. The 26-year-old asked for $6.25 million and was offered $4.6 million for 2010 when figures were exchanged last month. With a midpoint between…

  4. Timmy does Giants a huge favor

    Feb 12, 2010, 6:14 PM EDT

    The talk earlier this winter was that Tim Lincecum might try to set a very expensive precedent. Few players have ever gone to arbitration with anything resembling his kind of track record, and none of them have had just two-plus years of service time. The closest comparable was Ryan Howard, who won an MVP award…

    Feb 11, 2010, 8:35 PM EDT

    Frank Thomas, who last played with the Blue Jays and Athletics in 2008, will announce his retirement on Friday, sources told MLB.com.

  7. White Sox in the mix for Damon?

    Feb 11, 2010, 7:53 PM EDT

    It seems an unlikely match, given the team’s limited flexibility financially, but the White Sox are being talked about as a new suitor for free agent Johnny Damon. The White Sox certainly have room for Damon in their lineup. After electing not to bring back Jim Thome, they currently have Andruw Jones and Mark Kotsay…

  9. Angels bring back veteran infielder Quinlan

    Feb 11, 2010, 6:46 PM EDT

    The Angels have agreed to a new deal with free agent Robb Quinlan, writes MLB.com’s Lyle Spencer. Quinlan was widely expected to depart, probably for the National League, after a third straight season in which he contributed little to the Angels’ cause. The seven-year veteran has spent his entire career in Anaheim, and he was…

  11. Rangers prospect Gutierrez suspended 50 games

    Feb 11, 2010, 5:01 PM EDT

    Rangers prospect Danny Gutierrez was suspended for 50 games Thursday for testing positive for the amphetamine Adderall, MLB announced. Adderall is a drug used to treat Attention-Deficit Disorder, and many believe it is being abused by major leaguers seeking a boost. The Mitchell Report pointed out the number of players receiving “theraputic use exemptions” for…

  15. Fantasy ranking the rotations

    Feb 9, 2010, 6:35 PM EDT

    In light of Craig’s response to Buster Olney’s blog, I’ve thrown this together. It’s a ranking 1-30 of how the top six pitchers in each team’s rotation fare in my fantasy projections. This isn’t meant to be taken very seriously. For one thing, I’ve simply added up the totals, so the No. 6 starter is…

  16. Cardinals sign Schumaker to two-year deal

    Feb 8, 2010, 9:33 PM EDT

    The Cardinals signed second baseman Skip Schumaker to a two-year, $4.7 million contract on Monday, avoiding arbitration. It’s a modest surprise, given that the two sides had to close a wide gap for 2010. The Cardinals proposed a $1.45 million salary for Schumaker’s first year of arbitration, while Schumaker requiested $2.75 million, nearly twice as…

    Feb 4, 2010, 7:15 PM EDT

    Free agent Nomar Garciaparra, widely expected to retire after serving as a bench player for the A’s last year, told WEEI’s Lou Merloni that he’d like to continue his career in 2010. Garciaparra, 36, weighed retirement last year before taking a $1.5 million deal from Oakland. He played in 65 games and hit .281/.314/.388 with…

  25. Gregg a waste of money for Jays

    Feb 4, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    Sometimes a team just wants a proven closer. It doesn’t matter if he’s any good or not; it’s just the safe play. If the proven closer fails, then it’s his fault. If the unproven closer fails, it’s management’s fault. The 2010 Blue Jays, a team destined to finish in fourth or fifth place, now have…
