Santana, Phillies reach 3-year deal

16 December, 2017, 06:02 | Author: Christina Hansen
  • Cleveland Indians Carlos Santana connects for a two-run home run against the New York Yankees during the fourth inning in Game 4 of baseball's American League Division Series Monday Oct. 9 2017 in New York

The addition of Santana does make a lot of sense to a team who's in desperate need of some veteran leadership, with their most tenured player, Freddy Galvis, having been traded to the Padres on the very same day, but why invest three years and $60 million into a first baseman when you've already got one of the best young first basemen in the league? Santana represented arguably the most attractive free agent alternative to J.D. Martinez and Eric Hosmer, both of whom are expected to see paydays in excess of $100 million over at least five years this winter. He hit.259/.363/.455 with 23 homers past year, and.259/.366/.498 with 34 homers in 2016.

Hoskins, the 2017 International League Rookie of the Year came to the Phillies midway through the season after torching the minor leagues, including a 38 home run campaign in 2016, and immediately found success for the Phillies.

Mets: New York agreed to a minor league contract with catcher Jose Lobaton.

Astros: Reliever Hector Rondon has agreed to an $8.5 million, two-year contract.

TRADE: San Francisco agreed to trade left-hander Matt Moore to the Texas Rangers for prospects, a person with direct knowledge of the negotiations said. Lobaton will report to big league spring training and try to win a backup job behind Travis d'Arnaud.

Rockies: Colorado competed $27 million, three-year contracts with right-hander Bryan Shaw and lefty Jake McGee.

-Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Frank Lary, who won 123 games over 11 seasons, died this week, the team announced Friday.

Lawsuits: A defamation lawsuit filed by Pete Rose previous year against John Dowd, the lawyer who got him kicked out of baseball for betting on baseball in 1989, has been dismissed.

Lary, nicknamed the "Yankee Killer" after going 27-10 against the New York Yankees from 1955-61, pitched with the Tigers from 1954-64. Lary was nicknamed the "Yankee Killer" after going 27-10 against NY from 1955-61. Federal court documents show Rose's suit against John Dowd was dismissed Friday. It's a move that feels somewhat similar to Jim Thome coming in 2004, although Santana certainly has a slighter profile than the future Hall of Famer.
