    According to Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles have signed right-handed reliever Evan Meek to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    From Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times comes word that the Rays have agreed to a minor league contract with free agent outfielder Jack Cust. The deal comes with an invitation to spring training, where Cust will attempt to earn a backup role. Cust spent the entire 2012 season at the Triple-A level, batting…

  4. When it comes to the Hall of Fame, maybe THE INTERNET is not as powerful as people think

    MEMO To: THE INTERNET From: Agent Calcaterra Re: Agent Neyer Gentlemen: it has come to my attention that Agent Neyer has publicly doubted the efficacy of THE INTERNET to sway the Hall of Fame voting in favor of our chosen candidates. Apparently he was sleeping when THE INTERNET single handedly took control of the Hall…

  5. John Lannan is hurting his quest for a trade from Nationals

    John Lannan wants the Nationals to trade him and they’d be glad to if someone would take his $5 million salary off their hands, but instead he’s stuck in the minors and didn’t help his cause much yesterday in his first Triple-A start. Lannan lasted just two innings against the Yankees’ affiliate, giving up five…

    Sweeny Murti of WFAN reports that the Yankees have signed erstwhile man-crush, Jack Cust to a minor league deal. I probably said all I need to ever write about Cust yesterday. But for what it’s worth, he hit .213/.344/.329 last year. So if he’s gonna see any time in the Bronx this year, it will likely mean…

  7. The Astros cut Jack Cust. This is important. This means something.

    Normally I wouldn’t even write about a bad-defense marginal outfielder being cut in late March, but with Jack Cust — who the Astros just cut — I feel differently. That’s partially because of the deal he got. Rather than a minor league deal with a spring invite, Cust actually got a one-year deal with an…

  8. Running down the rosters: Houston Astros

    Feb 9, 2012, 12:30 AM EST

    Wandy Rodriguez

    The 2012 Astros are pretty sure bets to lose 100 games, with the big question being whether they’ll top last year’s mark of 106 losses. That achievement will be tied to their ability to move the contracts of Wandy Rodriguez, Brett Myers and Carlos Lee. Ideally, they’d be able to sell off at least the…

    After declaring the Houston Astros in position of the game’s worst rotation earlier today, I thought it’d be fun to look at the rest of the worst. So here are MLB’s most gruesome position situations heading into the 2012 season: Catcher: Dodgers – A.J. Ellis, Matt Treanor, Tim Federowicz The Dodgers let the slugging-heavy Rod Barajas…

  10. Mariners sign A’s castoff Jack Cust to one-year contract

    Jack Cust was non-tendered by the A’s last week, but Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com reports that he’ll remain in the AL West and sign a one-year contract with the Mariners worth $2.5 million in base salary. Cust has seen his power numbers decline in three straight seasons, but he remains a walk machine who…

  11. A’s may non-tender Jack Cust for second straight year

    Last offseason the A’s non-tendered Jack Cust rather than pay him around $4 million via the arbitration process, only to re-sign him a month later for $2.6 million. And now Jane Lee of MLB.com reports that Oakland may non-tender him again by tomorrow night’s deadline. Cust was better in 2010 than he was in 2009,…
