Well not much has gone down since Christmas in the baseball word but their are some notable deals that went down. Here are the most recent deals that have gone down.
-Texas Rangers agreed to terms with 3B Adrian Beltre on a six-year contract. Also agreed to terms with RHP Brandon Webb and LHP Arthur Rhodes on a one-year contracts.
-Baltimore Orioles agreed to terms with INF Cesar Izturis on a one-year contract. Also agreed to terms with 1B Derrek Lee on a one-year contract.
-Toronto Blue Jays agreed to terms with RHP Octavio Dotel on a one-year contract and Claimed LHP Wilfredo Ledezma off waivers from Pittsburgh.
-New York Mets agreed to terms with LHP Chris Capuano and RHP Taylor Buchholz on one-year contracts.
-San Diego Padres agreed to terms with INF/OF Brad Hawpe on a one-year contract.
I have to say that the Rangers are really trying to make up for the loss of Cliff Lee. They have gotten some great young guys and crafty veterans to add to their roster. Because their division is weak, they have a great shot at winning their division again and making a playoff run. Spring Training is just a few weeks away so stay tuned for any last minute deals.
